Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Review (360, PS3)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: By the time you read this I would bet my house on the fact that Modern Warfare 3, Infinity Ward and Activision along with Sledgehammer’s powerhouse, has sold a gazzilion copies, broken records all over the show in how fast it has taken to sell Greece’s national debt in copies and has already has a slagging down by Parliament via Keith Vaz and been in numerous headlines in the Daily Mail.
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.
Excerpt: Call of Duty has become the premiere franchise in all of entertainment, even as I write this review Modern Warfare 3 is shattering sales records. In this installment we have the genre defining competitive multi-player, the story driven campaign, and the return of the Spec Ops mode. As a huge fan of co-op games, I dove into the Spec Ops first and loved what I found. In addition to a selection of missions you have to complete, there is also a survival mode.
Summary: Come for the multiplayer. Stay for the multiplayer.
Pros: Sound design for the guns has been vastly improved; Campaign another rollercoaster thrill ride; Newly added features and modes for online multiplayer add to an already good system. Addition of Call of Duty Elite increases community involvement.
Cons: Multiplayer not kind to casual players and beginners.
Conclusion: The final big addition to the series is the inclusion of leveling for nearly every aspect of the game. Call of Duty players are used to leveling for their overall performances, but Modern Warfare 3 goes further and includes progression for nearly everything under the sun. Each weapon has its own levels, and usage of the weapon awards weapon-specific experience points used to level it up and unlock additional attachments and skins.
Xbox 360 Review - 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3'
20 November 2011
Summary: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is a continuation of the previous title in the franchise, sending you all around the globe on high-risk missions as a variety of characters, both new and returning.
Summary: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 doesn’t revolutionize the genre, nor does it make any pretence to, but what it does do, it does extremely well. For those who still enjoy the cinematic high action of the series, this is a fine ending to the current story arc. For those who are weary of jumping back into another entry after four releases in four years, Modern Warfare 3 is definitely worth checking out as it provides a grand campaign that far surpasses recent efforts, a...
Summary: The whole package makes this a good game. The game feels balanced and is fun to play provided you’ve got a good group of people in your games. The Co-op and new modes and options show that they didn’t just slap a big THREE on MW2 and thought about expanding the game as they went. Most people won’t buy it for the singleplayer and that will make them very satisfied, if you just want to play that, rent it, you’ll be done in a day.
Excerpt: There is something in our DNA that makes us love an underdog. There is also some perversion of that phenomenon that makes certain people hate the reigning champ. There are a lot of valid reasons to...
Pros: + Blockbuster single player experience, + Refined, more accessible multiplayer, + New modes for co-op and vs play, + Elite is a valuable addition
Cons: Monster closets, Matchmaking favors speed over skill level
