[GAMINGtruth] Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Review

Gamingtruth writes:
Modern Warfare 3 is going to be the biggest selling game this year. Yet I do not feel it is by any means one of the best games this year. When it comes down to the battle of the military shooters, Battlefield 3 offers new game play elements, a phenomenal multiplayer experience, stunning visuals and a step up in gameplay mechanics. Sure the folks at DICE had a rough launch with their servers, but who doesn’t? The game feels like a $60 map pack for Black Ops or Modern Warfare 2. Aside from the lackluster story that no one will remember by this time next month, Modern Warfare 3 is a simple re-hash of what was already in many homes. The game feels rushed and if Activision was smart it would pump the brakes on the franchise before it falls even further but, knowing the track record of the company, get ready to see more re-hashes for the next five years.

This game is so bad. SP is boring, MP maps are a terrible, overcrowded mess of pixels with too many killstreaks. The only actually good thing about MW3 is the Spec Ops Mode. I'm not going to lie, it's pretty damn fun even though the AI is brian dead.

pansenbaer2415d ago

I'll be renting it just for Spec Ops.

Will also probably play the campaign as well.

But Battlefield gets my multiplayer time...

Spitfire_Riggz2415d ago

Yeah, most of my friends who played battlefield 3 and had high hopes (after seeing B3) were extremely disappointed with modern warfare 3

RedDead2415d ago

Gonna buy it pre owned depending on how my friends like it. I will not by new. I'd prefer to support gamestop than Acti

ginsunuva2415d ago

Don't support either. Why do you want it just because your friends do? Are you a weak, spineless insect who gives into peer-pressure against his own will for acceptance from dumb people in society? Or are you a strong man who makes his own decisions, and shows those friends whether THEY should follow you or not, not you following them.

Was that persuasive enough?

"Are you a weak, spineless insect who gives into peer-pressure against his own will for acceptance from dumb people in society?"

No, he's (probably) someone willing to make some sacrifices in order to have a better social life.

There are activities I would rather not participate in that my friends want to to (just as there are activities that my friends don't want to do), but I tolerate them in order to have a better social life and to keep friendships.

Nobody wants to hang out with the selfish asshole who only does what he wants to do.

I'm not saying that if he doesn't buy MW3 then he's an asshole, but doing SOME things just because your friends do them can be healthy, and unless you want to be that lonely selfish asshole who stays at home and does everything alone, you tolerate some of the stuff they want to do, just as they tolerate the stuff you want to do. It's about not being a selfish prick.

"Or are you a strong man who makes his own decisions, and shows those friends whether THEY should follow you or not, not you following them."

Yeah! If his friends don't do whatever he says, then f*ck them! He's better off without them anyways. Who needs a social life, right? /s

Remembered 10,000 years later?

Marquis_de_Sade2414d ago

10,000 years? Try 65,000,000

and take advantage of the Buy Two, Get One Free promo on Amazon and buy Uncharted 3, Resistance 3, and Batman: Arkham City.

With those games now in my collection and by the time I'm through with those great games, I won't even consider buying MW3 until it hits the $40 benchmark, at least.

Beat the single player an hour ago. Played it online for a few hours and I'm already bored. It literally is the same game we played 4 years ago. The only difference is some new modes, weapons and perks.

The single player game is nearly identical in how it is presented from start to finish, trigger point spawning, xray heli and ac 130 fly over targeting, javelin killing tanks, breaching doors, wave after wave of enemies, slow motion boring dramatics, same graphics (but I do really like the lighten in this game, always have), being one character after another mission after mission, same cliche story same cliche out come.

Multiplayer has the same horrible masked latency, camp fest, horrendous hit detection, over the top unbalanced perks, etc and so on. This is a tired ass old engine that needs to go away.

If I was to rate this game I think a 6.5 to 7 would be about accurate. It's a shame that so many bigger sites are cowing down and over rated this game. It's not even a great game its just okay.

Flame on but check my XBL GT - BoodyBandit and see for yourself if I did not just complete this game and put enough time in to give an honest opinion. Over milked under worked title. New engine and dedicated servers is what this game is screaming for. For me personally, if Activision and Kotick wont do that than I can only hope this game will start to drop off rapidly unless they make serious changes.

Oh and BTW, I honestly tried hard to like this game but it is beyond been there did it done that. It is literally the same exact game we have been playing since last gen with some very miniscule tweaks and not for the better.

ZippyZapper2415d ago

BF3 failed to take down MW3 in any way.

Truth hurts

this reviewer is truthful.

Fylus2415d ago

I think the game does need a few more scores like this. Not to say if it's a bad game, but if the developers see it getting lower scores, they're gunna try harder to make a better game next year. Unfortunately remodeling and adding a couple minor features doesn't cut it. At least not for me, but hey, everyone has their opinions.

Avernus2415d ago

I like this review. Honest, and no BS about it.
