"Aside from the tweaks to the game's multiplayer, there's nothing in MW3 that should surprise anyone that's played any of the previous games. But for fans of the series that's no bad thing. New maps, weapons, killstreaks and modes are all that's required to keep the faithful, well, faithful. The single player, meanwhile, rather than being a throwaway companion to the real meat and bones of the game is instead a brilliant bombastic showcase of set-pieces and action. Take Call of Duty for what it is and embrace its dumb, nonsenical and scripted, but nonetheless hugely entertaining action sensibilities. Enjoy the ride. It's awesome."
