Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Excerpt: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for the Wii is not the same beast as its next-gen counterparts. That's an easy observation to make even if you've only spent five minutes with the game, but it sticks throughout the entire experience. Nearly every part of this game has been scaled back in order to plausibly work on Nintendo's underpowered console.
Excerpt: Here it is: the Wii version of Activision's annual, best-selling, running forwards simulator. Do you own another games console? Well get it on that one instead, Nintendo won't be offended. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is so embarrassingly obsessed with high-fidelity, explosion-filled, debris-showered, scream-drenched, testosterone-sipping set-pieces that it's hands-down better on one of those machines that are more technically equipped to draw pictures of the Eiffel...
Conclusion: Unfortunately to gain lengthy access to it for review purposes we all played the game on Xbox 360, but we’re looking at adding some supplemental PC coverage as well. Mostly looking at the server situation, potential for LANs and just how it holds up in all of the above on the desktop platform, so stay tuned for that. But, if you haven’t guessed already, I’ve walked away from the game pretty happy with the end product.
Pros: The perfect finale for an amazingly deep and complex narrative. Absolutely satisfying, Looks amazing in comparison to the previous game with excellent new lighting, Longer, more challenging campaign thanks to the best AI the series has seen, Spec Ops: Survival is insanely addictive, Solid Spec Ops co-op and solo missions, Solid multiplayer with some great new modes
Cons: Not a lot has ultimately changed, especially in multiplayer, There are still a few nagging choke-points, but far less than previous iterations, Multiplayer doesn't look nearly as good as single-player visually
