I'm sorry but I think Google Translate is struggling with translating this review a tad bit.

A summary from the site:

The best (The good):

-The Online will give you endless hours of entertainment.
-Spec Ops mode (and especially the ability to play splitscreen)
-Campaign effective and fun.
-Unlock all game content (Solo, Spec Ops, Competitive)

Worst(The Bad):

-Graphically left behind in all the fields in front of the exponents of the genre.
-Lack of innovation in multiplayer, changes, tweaks upgrades, but nothing significant or surprising to anyone who has played the previous titles.
-The feeling that most elements of the plot and we have seen, both playable, as the tale.
-The lack of interaction with the environment, takes away the whole dive.

I don't really think the graphics are that bad. Granted they are not the greatest out there and I know it's the same as MW2 but I found those decent enough and especially considering it's 60FPS.

"Lack of innovation in multiplayer"
What are they expecting? It's an arcade shooter and it sells. Why would they completely change the formula? If they want more realism and vehicles play BF3. Just my opinion anyway.

ginsunuva2228d ago

You sound a bit angry that there is no innovation. It never said rework the formula, just put some new unseen ideas in it, such as BlackOps' wager modes.
Speaking of which, does mw3 have wagering?

Gamer-Z2228d ago

@fluffydelusions

Rage runs at 60fps and it looks gorgeous, COD has no excuse.

xyxzor2228d ago

@Gamer-Z,

It also has the worst texture streaming. Ever.

Freshnikes2228d ago

I agree, I have bf3 and I still play bops and look forward to mw3 . Bf3 and mw3 are totally diff....

Kenshin_BATT0USAI2228d ago

@gin

no, it doesn't, because it doesn't have that stupid ass currency system in black ops.

Skip_Bayless2228d ago

That's rediculous because MW3 looks better than any other multiplatform multiplayer fps shooter on consoles.

Nes_Daze2228d ago

Innovation as in new features? Maybe adding something not seen before instead of making the FPS genre more like a sports genre in which every year is the same crap and sheep consumers gobble it up. The graphics suck, at least imo, the environment is too sterile, the best thing about call of duty is its arcade style online which is easy to pick up, I'll give it that, but it doesn't come close to the fun online I've had with other shooters.

Gamer19822228d ago

Agreed its the same crap every year and people gobble it up like drugs.. Shame really. Also I bought a copy of Gears 3 for £20 today its been reduce to half price within weeks of release. Nobody wants it no more.

In fact I got 2 copys thought it was a steal at that price went to trade it in to find nobody was giving over £16 trade! In fact my local CEX wouldn't take it claiming they had too many copies! Seems Gears is dead now :(. Gears 1 was amazing and crappy shooters like COD destroy great series like Gears.

Kamikaze1352227d ago

I guess they want something new thrown into the mix. CoD is a milked franchise and there doesn't seem to be a big enough difference between the games.

GoToTheOptionsMenu2227d ago

I probably wouldve bought it tonight if they at least put some crazy shit into it like modern warfare 2
Cant afford to spend $60 on a rehash

"That's rediculous because MW3 looks better than any other multiplatform multiplayer fps shooter on consoles."

Hahaah, that's so cute. John Madden trying to be funny.

BABY-JEDI2227d ago

No environmental destruction seems to be a strong critical point

RedDead2227d ago

"What are they expecting? It's an arcade shooter and it sells. Why would they completely change the formula? If they want more realism and vehicles play BF3. Just my opinion anyway."

Serious? We shouldn't expect anything new yeah? That doesn't exempt the game from trying anything new, it deserves score slash for literally nothing at all. It is literally Cod4 again with new maps and perks and a campaign. New content, not new game. Expansion pack is what this truely is, yet again, for the fourth time.

FINALLY, a review with enough sense to call it out as it is. I don't want to hear "but it's 60FPS excuses." Many 30fps have increased their visual/tech fidelity while maintaining the same frame-rate, does this mean once a game reaches 60fps the graphical and other technical aspects of the engine are stunted? Give me a break.

emartini2228d ago

Exactly. Look AT RAGE. THATS 60 frames per second and the graphics are great. Just goes to show that the devs are lazy and would rather just sit on their billions while they rape the hardcore gamers that play COD. The game is so mainstream and casual now that the hardcore gamers are being flushed out by more 5yr olds.

snipes1012228d ago

Well one thing about Rage was that even after installing it on my PS3 there was still a massive amount of texture pop in, which I haven't seen in COD titles. At least to the degree that I saw it in Rage anyhow.

boommuffin2227d ago

they have also been putting a lot of their resources into CoD elite which instead they should have put into making MW3

Biggest2227d ago

If there was no CoD Elite you can rest assured that MW3 would be just what it is. Love it or leave it.

gamingdroid2227d ago

Well considering MW3 actually has a great single player campaign compared to the competition, I will take that with a dash of polish over a buggy game, crappy campaign, disorienting and annoying shine in your face lighting effects, fancy looking graphics and new engine any time.

Whatever floats your boat!

One thing I wanna know about Spec Ops is if you can play with a random person.
You couldn't just join up with a random person and start playing. Needed a friend.
Sometimes, I wanted to play, but other people didn't or they weren't on.
It was quite aggravating, if you ask me. But, overall it's not a big deal.

Thats a respectable review, not because they gave it a 7.6 score but because they iterate whats plaguing the series over the past few years.

syanara2227d ago

One thing I think a lot of people are missing here is that if the developers had to stick with the same engine (and I am not a MW3 supporter by far) but f they HAD to stick with the same engine then they look like they did pretty good with the tools they had.

The set pieces and cut-scenes are all pretty much done in game and while Call of Duty is not a shining beacon of hope for graphics in video games they did look like they worked hard for it.

that does NOT mean the graphics are good by any means. Uncharted 3 can run at 720p 30fps and look twice as good as MW3. Battlefield is argueably better looking than MW3 and I would also say that gears of war 3 looks better than MW3. (infamous 2 easily looks better than MW3 and that was released way earlier this year)

I'm sure this will be one of the reviews (of course I mean, score) that "certain" N4G members will be happy to see. Enjoy yourselves... :)

Did Meerkat just say BF3 was sh!t and COD is a solid game that should hold his attention for 4 days???

Hmmmmm.

PC gamers also want it to crash and burn...

As a ps3 owner I hope mw3 does well as my gf and I tend to play it throughout the year between game releases. I just wanted to put that out there in case anybody actually believed meercat.

REAL gamers want to see CoD crash and burn.

TKCMuzzer2228d ago

No not really. People just want to see something better. COD makes a ludicrous amount of money and yet you would not know it by what comes the following year.
I paid £45 for Black Ops and if I pay £45 for MW3 am I going to feel anything different when I play it,no. Kill streaks, perks etc, it's all the same. Within days it will feel like what it is, just a glorified map pack.

Drabent2228d ago

I want to see it NOT LAG to hell in a day or two.

Leaguer2227d ago

my hats off to the poster who said "just a glorified map pack"..perfectly said =)

finally someone calling a spade for what it really is..

Sounds fair for all COD games. Waiting for Tom Chick to give it a 10.
