CoD: Modern Warfare 3 Single Player Review
5 December 2011
Excerpt: Modern Warfare 3 is the video game equivalent of the massive summer blockbuster. It’s like a six hour interactive montage of the most explosion-filled parts of a Michael Bay movie, strung together with a Clancy-esque narrative that has more twists and turns than a rope factory. There’s not a great deal of subtlety to it and it would rather punch your teeth down your throat than bring a tear to a saddened eye.
Pros: Fast, smooth and action packed., Twitch shooting at its best., Bold narrative choices that will shock.
Cons: The game engine is starting to show its age., It doesn’t do anything particularly innovative., A lot of the action and conceits now feel overly familiar.
Conclusion: In closing, it’s fair to say that with so much expectation and anticipation placed on MW3, Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games have had an uphill struggle to make this the game that does it predecessors justice. It manages it, just about. It plays it safe and doesn’t do anything unexpected, but doing so ensures that it is a game that whilst not quite as good as many would have liked, it is still worthy of the name Call of Duty.
Excerpt: Despite getting long in the tooth, the co op and multiplayer just do enough to remain fresh. Whoo, Modern Warfare 3. Three simple words that bring out the rabid foam in most gamers, whether positive or negative. You either love it, bought a console especially for it (guilty as charged, mlud!
Pros: One of the better campaigns in a while, wrapping up the Modern Warfare trilogy, well rounded control, weapons, and balance really shine, best co-op suite of the series, with something for everyone, still excellent close quarters multiplayer combat, Elite is interesting, Soap and Price
Cons: The campaign feels like a bit of a step backwards, multiplayer doesn’t add that much new, graphics are looking tired, voice acting falls short of the current gen levels
Conclusion: Infinity Ward changed the entire action genre with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare . The game became the standard mould in which new titles were cast, and ever since the franchise has grown to become one of the most successful ones in the industry. Four years have passed, and not a lot has happened to shake things up. Most action titles that have come since haven't really tried to take the concept any further.
Summary: Když z Infinity Ward odešla celá řada důležitých vývojářů, měl jsem strach, jak se zbytek s nelehkým úkolem vypořádá. Nakonec bylo moje očekávání několikanásobně překonáno, protože Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 je pro mě osobně docela velkým překvapením. Hlavní kampaň je rychlá se spoustou až epických momentů, ze kterých vás bude mrazit v zádech. Multiplayer je ale více méně klasický sérii, ale také nabízí několik zajímavých novinek, za které budou fanoušci určitě rádi.
