Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 — Content Collection 2
18 May 2012
Excerpt: Initially released in bits and pieces to Call of Duty Elite Premium subscribers, this second Content Collection extends the latest set of DLC offerings to the wider Call of Duty fanbase — and it’s an even larger, more diverse medley than the first. On the Spec Ops front, “Kill Switch” proves a tense scenario, with your squad split between an on-foot operative and a sniper covering him from above…and that’s before things get hairy!
Pros: + "Oasis" and "Sanctuary" maps are definite highlights., + Both Face Off maps deliver great compact battles.
Cons: ? Which beautiful locales will we ruin next?
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – Content Collection 1 (Xbox360)
30 March 2012
Excerpt: March 20th signalled the release of the first Content Drop for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, unimaginatively called: Collection 1. Included in this downloadable content (DLC) pack for all the non-Elite subscribers are four new multiplayer maps and, for the first time, two new Spec Ops missions.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Content Collection #1
20 March 2012
Excerpt: Sidestepping the typical map-pack formula, Modern Warfare 3 ’s Content Collection #1 — which compiles the first six premium Elite DLC additions for non-subscribers — delivers not only fresh multiplayer locations, but also a dazzling pair of new Spec Ops missions. “Black Ice” borrows the snowmobiles from Modern Warfare 2 for a hectic chase in which one player drives while the other dual-wields assault rifles from the back seat, culminating in your infiltrating and blowing...
Pros: + The two new Spec Ops missions are excellent., + Most of the four new maps are pretty strong, especially “Black Box.”
Conclusion: Modern Warfare 3 ne fait pas dans l'innovation et se contente finalement d'exploiter ses acquis. Avec sa campagne grand spectacle et son multijoueurs toujours aussi solide, MW3 offre une formule encore gagnante. On pourra justement lui reprocher de ne pas aller plus loin, de se contenter de peu, de ne pas évoluer ni même prendre de risques.
Pros: Du grand spectacle pour les amateurs, Le rythme de l'action toujours effrénée, La personnalisation des parties privées en multi, L'amélioration des Killstreaks, La progression du joueur et de ses armes en multi
Cons: Peu de prises de risque, Manque d'évolution, Moteur graphique vieillissant
Excerpt: The story continues to follow the exploits of Lieutenant Price and his good buddy Soap. Boy, have those two been through a lot! After taking out the traitor at the end of the last game, the duo are disavowed by their own governments and are forced underground. Now operating outside the grid they meet up with Nikolai, another old friend, who helps them get what they need to go after Makarov.
Conclusion: I really wanted to like this game but didn’t have super high expectations, I just wanted another Modern Warfare game. Unfortunately while it is a Modern Warfare game there are just too many issues with the game for me to expressly recommend it to anyone besides someone that really wants to know how the story ends.
Excerpt: There’s no denying the popularity of the Call of Duty series. In fact, COD is in the same conversation as Mario when it comes to the most sucessful gaming series of all time – ever since Infinity Ward’s smash hit COD4 , the series has taken off and never looked back. Fans tout the series’ ability to put you into a five hour action movie without fail, and provide a competitive multiplayer element that thousands of people will still be playing years later.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Singleplayer and Spec Ops (Xbox360)
28 November 2011
Excerpt: I’ve given the singleplayer campaigns of past Call of Duty games a lot of flak for their incredibly linear nature, nonsensical faux-military stories and a heavy reliance on videogame tropes and conventions that the industry as a whole now recognises as rote. Things like infinitely spawning enemies and punishment for straying from the script – methods used to push, pull and violently shove you through the exact experience that the game’s developers had in mind, and...
Conclusion: The weapons in Modern Warfare 3 are a real highlight. Although the campaign can be completed without really switching weapons at all, experimentation provides a more-varied experience. For example, fire an RPG at a car to kill multiple opponents is easier than mowing them down with an AK-47. Weapons feel weighty and recoil impressively, while the smooth targeting system ensures players feel in control.
Conclusion: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is a well produced title that will give you another slice of entertainment, whether you choose to go it alone or head online to kick ass and take some names. It's nothing new though, and single-player feels especially lightweight this time around, so there is still room for improvement. More of the same next year then – which is both great news and a bit disappointing really.
