Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Microsoft Xbox 360, 2011)
About this product
|Activision Blizzard's top-selling first-person shooter franchise marches on with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Players must deal with the fallout from the devastating attacks on U.S. and British soil in a storyline that picks up where 2009's Modern Warfare 2 left off. The single-player campaign has you battling Russian ultranationalists, led by Vladimir Markov, as members of the U.S. Delta Force and British SAS. You'll battle across war-torn areas of New York City, London, Paris, Mogadishu, Dubai, and other regions as you prepare to end the global threat once and for all.|
As with previous entries in the Call of Duty series, Modern Warfare 3's campaign features a heavily scripted, cinematic experience with Hollywood-style special effects. One new mission, for example, has you involved in underwater travel with a sonar-equipped submersible watercraft. You'll then fight inside an enemy-controlled submarine before guiding an inflatable raft across turbulent waters while a naval battle rages nearby. Other sequences have you firing mounted guns, driving vehicles, and more while explosions light up the landscape.
Returning to the game is the cooperative Spec Ops mode that features a series of standalone missions on different maps. New to Spec Ops is a survival option that has you and either a friend or a computer partner battling waves of enemy forces. Shooting down enemies earns you cash, which can be used to purchase new perks, items, weapons, and other upgrades. You'll also be able to earn bonuses by working together as a team and maintaining kill streaks.
The heart of the game is once again the 18-player online component, which introduces all-new maps and a variety of enhancements to the format introduced in Modern Warfare 2. Popular features such as kill-streak awards, experience points, weapons-based achievements, and perks return, allowing you to customize your character as you progress. An optional subscription service entitled "Call of Duty Elite" will allow players to track detailed statistics such as win-loss records, kill-death ratios, time played, most successful maps, favorite weapons, and much more.

OMG THIS GAME IS JUST.... JUST... READ NOW
This game is horrible, I custom ordered it directly from the manufacturer, I recieved one of the first 10,000 copies, 2 days ago. Cost me $576 plus international shipping.<br><br>Remember when Black Ops came out and you were all like YES! A knew call of duty, and then the graphics sucked, and the perks were wierd, and all that, well I got used to that, but this one NOPE. The campaign is approzimately 7 hours long and its about catching "Mahinez" some Russian guy I believe, and during the whole game there is:<br><br>- No sniping, unless you call ACOGing with a magnum sniping.<br><br>-NO jumping, yes in this game you CANT jump at all, you just move up edges.<br><br>-NO secondary weapon, when you pull out your secondary pistol, you have to find a new main gun because it disappears.<br><br>-The "Spec ops" mode is okay, Its like on mw2, but you have to beat campaign on the second hardest mode atleast to unlock it!<br><br>-In multiplayer:<br><br>-You cant jump and the stupid secondary thing happens.<br><br>-You can choose your own type of body armor and color, which is pretty cool.<br><br>-The Tomahawk/Throwing Knife of this game is a Ninja Star like thing.<br><br>-There are NO final killcams, which is VERY aggrivating, Thats what made COD, COD but they took out final killcams for every game mode except I believe team deathmatch and free for all.<br><br>-Search and destroy is relatively the same, but you know, no final killcams, and there are specific search and destroy maps, that are VERY small (like rust and nuketown but a bit smaller) and you cant plant the bomb unless you have the "Demo-Expert" perk, or you take the perk from a dead guy (yes, you can ACTUALLY TAKE perks from people, only certain ones tho).<br><br>-Killstreaks include:<br><br>-The Tactical Nuke (which im happy to say is back)<br><br>-EMP<br><br>-Fire Chopper (A pavelow, but it shoots what appears to be napalm strikes?)<br><br>-The Best Gun (For this you need 7 kills in a row and atleast one assist which I guess is a new type of streak) and what this gun does is take your gun and improve the damage on it significantly, great for quick scoping if they had it.<br><br>- There are a total of 7 killstreaks, they took out the care package and sentry gun.<br><br>-About Quickscoping- You can now quickscope only with the INT40qr gun, its the only sniper that allows the sleight of hand (pro) perk to be used on. The gun is very accurate, but is bolt action and does very minimal damage, you need 2 headshots sometimes.<br><br>-NO THEATER MODE<br><br>-NO CLAYMORES<br><br>-NO RIOT SHIELD OR ONE MAN ARMY<br><br>-AND what really sucks, NO XBOXLIVE PARTIES! You can only party with ONE other person, its really sucks.<br><br><br><br>This game is absolutely horrible, I just didn't want to be the first one to give it a bad review. DO NOT look forward to this game, maybe they will make it better next time. I cant even get a refund for the $576 I paid to get this game super early. This game is horrible and DO NOT BUY IT<br><br>-<br><br>-<br>-<br>-<br><br><br>-<br><br><br>-<br><br><br>----<br>-<br>-<br>-<br>-<br>-<br>--<br>-<br>OH BY THE WAY. This whole guide was a lie, I was totally kidding, I hope the game isn't this bad and I really hope its fun, thanks for reading lol, dont take it offensively or anything, everyones looking forward to this game and I just wanted to mess around a bit. I know nothing about this game besides that its COD 8 and coming out in november or so.<br><br>LOL.Read full review

Modern Fantasy 3, really unrealistic,worst COD yet,SAVE your Money!!!
I have played every CoD & some BF games so I can tell you I'm not biased.This game a 2 or a 3 star game, not a 1 or a 5.I expected MW3 to be better than Black ops was, & to be even better than MW2 was.It turns out I tried every mode,& it turns out it is possible for a COD to be worse than black ops.<br>Single Player:<br>The single player is by far the worst in a call of duty so far,it is not interesting, & the story makes little sense.It starts off with a continuation of the war between the US and Russia in New York.The first level is just you moving around NY killing Russians. There are many stupid scenes in this mission like when I tried to destroy a Hind with the XM25 I found & words popped up saying weapons can't kill vehicles.Later in that mission you get on a mini gun in a black hawk being chased by Hinds,on this mini gun somehow you easily destroy like 4 attack helicopters.Also in the first 2 missions the amount of Russian ships clogging up the harbor made little sense.Later in the game you end up on the Russian president's jet to protect him from makarov, it turns out somehow a bunch of makarov's men were stowawayed on the plane,ends up that makarov finds him & then threatens the presidents daughter if he doesn't continue the war after they somehow survived a plane crash unscathed. This is incredibly unrealistic,no president would want a devastating & costly war just so his daughter could live. Afterwards we go to Africa, in a location very similar to Brazil in MW2. It seems for whatever reason in this game they tried to make it controversial or something because there is a part where you snap a dog's neck and brutal shoot it multiple times,in another scene price brutally interrogates a guy by setting off poisonous gas,then gives him a breathing mask after getting the info and then brutally shoots him,then of course the little girl gas bombing home video,Makarov getting hanged in the end seemed too dramatic and unnecessary. The other stupid part of the game is how it seems like they tried too hard to make it WW3,by going to Africa,England,Germany,France,Siberia,and the middle east;yet there seemed to be little involvement with other countries apparently involved in the war other than the US,Russia,and the UK.There were several inconsistencies that made it seem more of a modern fantasy, Russians having vehicles from the cold war, heavily armored juggernauts immune to bullets,an unnecessary amount of slow-mo scenes,& several circumstances where it seems like you will die,but by some miracle you live.<br>Survival Mode<br>Its a fun addition but was ruined with the addition of suicide bombers & dogs strapped with C4.<br>Multiplayer<br>The multiplayer is hardly different from MW2.The engine,graphics,audio,mechanics,are pretty much identical. 26 guns are back from the others MWs.They included proficiencies which are pretty much perks for guns which doesn't make sense.They don't physically add anything to the gun which makes no sense when it changes something like the kick or power of a gun.The grenades are pretty much same except the doesn't exist trophy system.They got rid of some bad perks,but added ones like Quick draw for quickscoping,hardline pro which means 2 assist=1 kill.Stupid deathstreaks like juiced,dead man's hand. Kill confirmed makes 0 sense also, that your kills don't count unless u pick up the red & gold floating dog tags.The infected mode has no zombies just people with knifes,and juggernaunt.Overall the game isn't worth the time or $.Read full review
