GAME OF THE YEAR

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The single player story for Modern Warfare 3 is absolutely stunning. Infinity Ward has kept true to their style of game development by once again making sure you never leave first person view. I enjoy cinematic scenes, but the level of intensity that you get throughout the campaign whilst always being in first person view is great. Modern Warfare 3 is a direct sequel to Call of Duty 5: Modern Warfare 2, and picks up right where Call of Duty 5 left off. Modern Warfare 3 adds a lot more to the campaign than Infinity Ward’s last title, including graphics as well as unique missions that you should definitely experience for yourself. The graphics in Modern Warfare 3 are the best I have seen so far in a Call of Duty game while keeping it smooth with a constant 60 frames per second. The detail of the environments and the character models are beautiful. Some of the scenes throughout the campaign are really breathtaking as they are action packed, and keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time. To add to that, there are many surprises and twists throughout the game that no one will see coming, making this story an amazing action packed thriller. Although the campaign is amazing, it was fairly brief, lasting around 6-8 hours depending on the difficulty. And speaking of difficulty, I would add that the game was a lot easier on Veteran than any of the other Call of Duty games.
Now for the good stuff; multiplayer. Multiplayer for Call of Duty 5 is mostly what made it so popular and in Modern Warfare 3 it gets even better. The addition of many killstreaks and having the ability to customize which ones you want ,with a max of 3 available at once, is where this game’s multiplayer action really differs from Call of Duty 5. Even in objective modes like Search and Destroy, you can gain killstreaks throughout the course of many rounds, granted you don’t die at the end of the round. And if you try using you stealth class from Call of Duty 5 or World at War in this game you might not be safe with the addition of Heartbeat sensors as an attachment to certain weapons which detect movement. Of course there is a perk to counter that though. Many perks from Call of Duty 5 have been made into attachments or equipment. There are many additions to the game that will really let you personalize your class to your liking, much more so than the previous Call of Duty games. I saw a lot of people running around with many different class setups instead of seeing everyone with the same 5 as in the other games. You can now unlock titles and emblems for yourself that show up in game. Modern Warfare 3 has added more modes as well.

Suited all my needs and blows away my expectations with impressive sounds!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

ok,this is coming from someone who played the big red one,and that's it,until MW2...that seemed to be an amazing epic adventure with an awesome plot,or at least an awesome story,even though i didn't pay much attention at first...there were some crazy moments in that game but now we talk about 3...freakin nuts...i haven't played Blops 1 or 2 yet,but because of this game's greatness,i will be looking forward to them 1 at a time...from the first minute i had it in the ps3,i knew something great had to be coming because of all the reviews and comments on x-play...bear in mind you need to NOT be playing through your crap tv speakers,or you'll miss everything...i play loud as hell,but it's not needed...of course first you do the shooting range thing,and move on...when i shot the ak 47,i was mesmorized...i cranked up the volume AND more importantly the BASS...that is where the magic happens...you hear the bullet,then the whizzing through the air,then actually you can "feel" the casings hit the concrete...so you can easily almost imagine yourself being enveloped in this world...i love killing in the name of this country,but also poland(but this isn't warfighter,now is it,lol) you are constantly shooting at the filth of the world,in some cases,people who deserve a bullet to the head(not stallone reference) so,from the first shot i was thrilled,then you get SCAR,or even the lousy shotgun and you're in heaven...but then...............a little later on you get an x25,i think it was,which is a better version of an rpg style weapon,and i just couldn't believe the weapons and sounds were getting even better...but then again later on you get a type og flare,but it's a grenade style smoke bomb,which is a locating device for your air support team...they crash through the skies like the apocalypse ravaging everything and every loser in their sights...that is probably the most heart pounding sound in the game,and i can't remember experiencing that type of sound/bass rumble/destruction...i could go on and on,but i haven't even beaten the solo plot yet,and still have to touch the multi player,which most people go straight to,well,not me...i will get there,but not important...from what i saw it was great...to top this all off: there is another 20 or so missions to do in the solo,which was like the MW2,but more impressive,more extensive...some survival modes and some missions to achieve goals...you can even play this part online with friends or randoms...it's really a lot of game if you ask me...i am giving this a 5 star because there is no 4.5,and i'm sure as hell not going to dock it a half star,so 5 it is...a must play,and you have to at least check it out...i bought it,and i usually don't buy games...this was sick and worth it guys!!!

Review For: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Microsoft Xbox 360, 2011)

Modern Warfare 3 is quite an accomplished game. There are plenty of likes and dislikes for me. It is definitely worth your money if your an avid gamer such as myself. Having this game may not make your girlfriend or wife happy, but you sure will be. Let me give you some of my standard Pros and Cons of what I think about MW3.
-----
PROS: It's yet another CoD game which speaks measures by itself. The multiplayer gameplay is exquisite. The customized killstreak rewards suite everyone no matter your style. Graphics= awesome. I really enjoy the weapons although they didn't get too creative since the last Modern Warfare. It is more difficult to gun down an opponent, which means it takes more skill and is overall more satisfying. Guns handle much better and are more realistic. Type 95 Assault Rifle..... enough said.
-----
CONS: Maps are definitely fun, but do not share any of the intricacies of Modern Warfare 2 like rooftop battles and shrubbery to hide in. Explosives are awful. I am a huge fan of claymores and grenades and in MW3 they have lost a lot of their killing power. Price is just too much to buy new in my opinion. A majority of the maps are more styled for a Run-and-Gun gameplay which favors the less skilled where luck is a contributor.
-----
OVERALL: Buy it!! and make sure to buy it USED. It may take a few days to get the hang of it like most games, but soon after it will become one of your favorites in your video game arsenal.

Review For: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Microsoft Xbox 360, 2011)

I have owned a copy of this game since the first day it was sold ; I love this game, multiplayer is always busy, generally in : Team Deathmatch ; but, Survival Mode is always busy, and there are roughly about 20 maps to play, where players compare the number of levels or WAVES they have survived ; in Resistance, for example I an listed as having survived 86 WAVES, but I I quit at WAVE 100, you must allow the enemy to kill you if you want your highest wave to be recorded, very fun game if you work together with you team mate to achieve victory, but if you go your seperate ways and play against the enemy by yourself, you will not do nearly as well ; mount your defense with a Sentry gun, and with Riot Shielders to help guard you against the enemy, and lay Claymores all around your position, especially if you wanna take out the Dogs that come at you at warp speed, strapped with C-4 explosives.

Review For: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Microsoft Xbox 360, 2011)

This is an awesome phenomenon! It's not just a game, it's a lifestyle. Activision really made a mark with this game and the creation of the Elite membership. Cross-game stats with COD Black Ops and a platform to include upcoming releases and past releases, eventually, is a brilliant business model! Having the Founder statis with the Elite membership makes all the great options even better, especially with the 'Founder Only' goodies. (This is the 2nd COD MW3 Xbox 360 game we purchase, the first one was pre-ordered and we were at launch for four hours (yep, four long hours...) with approximately 1200 of the 20-and-under crowd. I think we were two of twelve over-20 people that were not employees of the store and, coincidentally, ran into our nephews, kids from our neighborhood, allong with current and former schoolmates of our teenaged son...all of whom wondered how and why we were there... Well, we have the credit cards! It was sweet when they pulled up chairs for us around 11pm... As I am a fan of this series, along with Halo, I absolutely recommend this title for all. Our son, though attention span equals the length between previous and upcoming launches, gives this a 21-sniper rifle salute!

Product Information
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

F-ing Awesome!!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Call of Duty by activision for the past years has put out awesome war games. Call of Duty Modern Warefare3 3 just adds to their great reputation. This game tops all others when we thought nothing could get better than Cal, of Duty Modern Warefare 2. This game has amazing online multiplayer and a great story line that continues where COD MW2 left off. They added this year a survival and missions mode which has really made the game even more diverse. I can not wait to see what they do next.

The best experience ever

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Call of duty: modern warfare 3 (Call of Duty MW3) is wonderful video game. The multiplayer is still has the power of getting richer and richer. If you have enough time you can unlock more strong equipment s and abilities. The killstreaks system that presents the most peculiar toys is a boondoggle for the better players. By scoring multiple kills without being killed you can get the best gear. Those who do not want to involve themselves in competitive multiplayer can have a survival mode. You can along with another player avail of the option of holding out against waves of attackers, earning money to buy new weapons and defenses. It also includes explosives, airstrikes and A1- controlled soldiers. If you keep on playing, with the passage of time you level up and unlock new matches.
