So that’s what I’m going to do! I’m taking two separate reviews for two games and making them into one grueling match up to the death! And if you haven’t guessed by now because you simply didn’t read the link you clicked to get to this page, it’s Activision’s gorilla in the room Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 vs. EA’s second attempt at taking their thunder Battlefield 3!"
