Summary: They should have called it MW2.1. The campaign is basically gunning down one alley after another. The helicopter always gets blown up. The enemy troops are scripted. Multiplayer is basically the same as MW2 with some major revamps of the kill streaks, ect. Lucky for them, I liked MW2 so I like this game, but quite frankly, I am going to bed now rather than playing because it just doesn't draw me in like it MW2 used to.
Summary: Before I start, please allow me to preface this review with three points: 1) I love the COD franchise...and have played every title extensively. My wife will back that statement up...while she sighs and reevaluates her life choices. 2) BF2/BC2/BF3 are good games...and I will not bash them. That said, BF is a different experience, with huge battlefields, many different types of vehicles, and a range of player roles. COD is a different animal..
Summary: Call of duty MW3 is a good game in a few aspects but has a few game killing features. The spec ops and campaign are very well done and keep the amazing MW2 story and gameplay aspects around. The game killing aspect is in the multiplayer which is the most popular feature in Call of Duty because of its addictive, fast action gameplay. This game killing feature is how hacked this game is.
Summary: I've played pretty much every Call of Duty game dating back to the original and this one lives up to the legacy even if it doesn't innovate much. The single-player campaign is full of those bombastic scripted moments the series is so well known for and the multiplayer is solid if not spectacular. Between the two I squeezed about 30 hours out of the game, pretty much all of which were enjoyable.
Summary: Basically, this game is just Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 1 with more perks, more streaks, more guns, more maps, more everything. That's fine, since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is easily one of the best FPSes released in this generation. It's fun, it's serviceable, there are certainly worse games you could be spending your money on, but at this point, it's unarguable that the series has definitely lost something since its earlier incarnation.
like all xbox controllers, almost always a joystick is going in a direction already.

Summary: I keep getting these controllers with the joystick going in one direction. One my character wanted to always walk right. The new one he always walks backwards, or toward the screen. Its really annoying. But it's something Microsoft won't fix :(.
