Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
2 September 2013
Summary: [ Update: We originally said that you couldn't swap Ally/Friend Codes as in Black Ops . Turns out you can, so that line has been corrected.] Since Internet winner Jim Sterling has already published Destructoid's official review of Modern Warfare 3 , this article is strictly looking at how successfully the game has been ported to the Wii.
Conclusion: Modern Warfare 3 lives up to the hype. It is proving itself the one of the best the FPS genre has to offer. Although they do not usually stray much from their normal formula they always use you can easily understand why. Do not change something that is not broken. The single player campaign wraps up the story nicely and even pulls at the heartstrings a little especially if you played Modern Warfare 2 and somewhat invested in the soldiers that survived.
Summary: Few franchises have had a larger impact on the modern console gaming landscape than Call of Duty. The Modern Warfare scion of the long-running series has attracted millions of devoted players (and customers) to its addictive multiplayer arenas and cinematic campaigns, as well as inspired widespread adoration and shameless imitation. And Modern Warfare 3 doesn't stray far from the familiar formula.
Pros: Climactic campaign, Lots of varied and challenging Spec Ops action, Exciting and entertaining competitive multiplayer, Spec Ops profile spreads the satisfaction of leveling up
Cons: Multiplayer sticks closely to familiar formula
Excerpt: Do you remember where you were at the start of World War III? I do; getting pounded by some guy with a Striker over and over again in a German shopping mall. Campaign, co-op, or multiplayer? That's the gulf between Modern Warfare 3's trisected whole. To say there are three separate games on the disc would be an exaggeration, but to simultaneously apprise Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games' trio of component parts as one singular whole would be unfair.
Excerpt: At this point, I'm completely convinced that Activision could slap the Call of Duty moniker on absolutely anything and open with record-breaking launch day sales. Not that they would, but they could. Is this a good thing? After playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 ... I don't have an answer to that question. Don't get me wrong; it's a quality product that features a well-produced campaign and a expertly-balanced multiplayer component.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Hardened Edition (PS3) Review
25 December 2011
Summary: Call of Duty: Hardened Edition is the perfect gift for the most hardcore of hardcore gamers and especially first-person shooters and Call of Duty fans. It comes with a ton of extra duties and some extra special online access. It does cost over $100, but it gives a lot of bang for your buck if you are so inclined.
Excerpt: Modern Warfare 3 is now out, and even away from the game's plot, the game was under its own inner turmoil. After the firing of Infinity Ward founders Jason West and Vince Zampella, and the eventual exodus of several other members, Activision summoned both Sledgehammer Games and Raven software to work on the game.
Conclusion: MW3’s story continues from where the previous game left off. The Russian Ultranationalist Vladmir Makarov is still at large and plotting attacks against America and her Allies. Meanwhile, a full blown out war has erupted between the US and Russia that sees New York be the epicenter of the conflict between the two nations. The game’s story has a nice variety of locales including Western Europe, East and West Africa and India.
Excerpt: The Call of Duty series has enjoyed astounding success, but one has still got to wonder how long it will last. Don’t get me wrong, I wish publisher Activision all the luck in the world going forward with the series, although I’m still intrigued as to what will replace Call of Duty as the biggest game in the world when its time finally comes – probably another FPS. Still, there’s a large amount of people that will want to learn the fate of the likes of Soap and Price.
Excerpt: It's impossible to escape the spotlight Modern Warfare 3 is under. With the recent departure of original creators Jason West and Vince Zampella, along with most of the Infinity Ward team, and the high-profile competition this year, many have speculated that this could be the swan song for the venerable franchise.
