Closing Comments
Despite its flaws, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 takes the fantastic series we’ve come to love over the years and iterates on it with great success. The multiplayer is hands-down the best it has ever been, with more features, more modes and a ton of new levels and ways to interact via Call of Duty Elite. The singleplayer campaign and Spec Ops mode add value to the overall package, creating something that may not be perfect, but is too damn addicting to pass up.
IGN Ratings for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (X360)
Rating Description
out of 10 Click here for ratings guide
8.5 Presentation
Modern Warfare 3’s menus are laid out clearly and work well. The Elite functionality also adds a lot to competitive multiplayer players.
8.5 Graphics
Sure, the engine is dated, but the work that’s been done still creates scenes that are impressive to watch. And it always runs at 60 frames per second.
8.0 Sound
A lot has actually been done with the guns to make them sound like they have more weight. The voice acting is also well done, though I could stand for a bit less rockin’ guitars.
9.0 Gameplay
The campaign story has its failings, but fantastic set pieces nonetheless. The multiplayer is the best it’s ever been, and Spec Ops is also great fun.
9.5 Lasting Appeal
This is the Call of Duty players will be playing online for hours and hours thanks to its engrossing multiplayer experience. That is, until the next one comes out…

The Telegraph:5/5 (360)

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/video-games/video-game-reviews/8873601/Call-of-Duty-Modern-Warfare-3-review.html

Modern Warfare 3 is a shining example of refinement and improvement. It's familiar, sure, but here familiarity doesn't breed contempt, just respect and reward for those who've dedicated so much time to the series. And for new players, it's the perfect starting point, more accommodating and encompassing than ever. The series has always been renowned for elements like the excellent sound design, the gloss, polish and compulsion of its gameplay, but with Modern Warfare 3, Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer have created a game that not only lives up to the brand hype but exceeds it. A game where the mass appeal is justified, and the expectations are met. A game which is undoubtedly going to be played for a long, long time to come, and deservedly so.

Mind-blowing multiplayer

Or at least that game seems to be the main inspiration for the fast and addictive multiplayer element. After the more expansive multi-tier maps of MW2, MW3 returns to the series' close-quartered twitch reflex roots. Snipers are still catered for of course: there are numerous spots on each map designed for picking off enemies from afar. But campers – the lepers of the CoD world – will find fewer choke points to bunker down beside on each of the 16 maps; the focus of each match tends to flit between different areas with greater frequency, making for more fluid open play. So if your favourite kind of virtual war is a slow-burn saga where barely a shot is fired, you won't find much here that caters to your tastes. MW3 is an adrenaline-pumping run-and-gun beast. Play it for long enough and it'll put hair on your chest. Well, maybe not. But you get the idea.

                                                                                                      

Pressfire.no: 6/6

http://www.pressfire.no/anmeldelser/PS3/4223/call-of-duty-modern-warfare-3

Overall, the single player part of "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3" a well-worked-person shooter with a great variety in the missions. Although the story is quite shocking, it is good and has a good continuity from their predecessors.

                                                                                                     

NXGM: 76/100

Well hopefully these grumps are not on Metacritic.

http://nxgm.ucoz.com/blog/analisis_de_call_of_duty_modern_warfare_3/2011-11-06-102

Controversy:

    CoD: Elite, 50 € for downloadable content, as well as in many countries we run sweepstakes and tournaments.

The best:

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


Worst

    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.
    No online play

Final score: 76/100

Appeal:

    If you add 10 points to play online
    If you play just subtract 6 points.
                                                                                         

PALGN: 8.5 out of 10

http://palgn.com.au/xbox-360/19886/call-of-duty-modern-warfare-3-review/

The Score
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 offers a satisfying challenge with an expanded Spec Ops mode, while bringing the trilogy’s campaign to a solid end and significantly improving the console market’s leading multiplayer.  

                                                                  

CyberBoxPR: 8/10

http://cyberboxpr.net/?p=8591

In conclusion, COD: MW3 is an excellent game, very addictive for many, but since this is the eighth installment of the franchise and the third game of the series 'Modern Warfare', tends to recycle content from past games. It is easy to identify that the multiplayer is the same as previous deliveries and has been very little change other than the redesign of the "kill streak" and the two new ways. Everything else is recycling a winning formula that many love, but that can become a repetitive moment so many times that fans of the series have played these modes. Small changes are not sufficient to satisfy the thirst of 'gamer' you are looking for innovation. With all the integration of a new graphics engine, just the differences can be seen in the charts with previous titles. Despite these criticisms, the story of the campaign brings a lot of action and less talk. The mode 'suvival' makes it a very addictive game.

And this year was also released the game "Battlefield 3", creating a cyber war between the two games to see which one gets the title of best 'shooter' of the year.

                                                         

Playnation: 4.5 out of 5

Conclusion:

I give honest: I was at first set rather skeptical about the single player campaign of Modern Warfare third And even after the termination of the nearly 7-hour single-player parts remain mixed feelings. On the one hand, you get an adrenaline-charged, offered at no time boring continuation of the Modern Warfare series. On the other hand are the outdated look and the slow durchgelutscht and artificially protracted action acting much weight. Similar to the competition, the focus during the development on the multiplayer part, whereby the single-player campaign became a minor matter. And for a "secondary matter" by the adult main plot is good anyway.

The assigned rating refers only depends on the single player and multiplayer Call of Duty: Modern Warfare third A detailed test of the multiplayer mode within the next few days here on playNATION.de!

                                                    

Allabout the games: 5/5

http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?headline=Call-of-Duty--Modern-Warfare-3&article_id=12203

There seems to have been a certain amount of snobbery emanating towards the Call of Duty franchise from gamers of late. Whether that's franchise-fatigue, a general disdain for anything published by Activision, or simply because it's reigned supreme since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and people always prefer to back the underdog, remains unclear. But whatever the reason, it's obvious that some commentators are losing the ability to remain objective about what in a few days time will be this year's tent-pole-release across all platforms.

Graphics: 23/25             Gameplay: 18/25           Story: 15/25          Replayability: 25/25

Conclusion

While Modern Warfare 3 sports a multiplayer as good if not better than Modern Warfare 2, the amazingly linear campaign really drags the game down into the mud. Why they even bother devoting resources to a campaign is beyond me. Just package up the multiplayer and sell it for $45, people will buy it! Otherwise the wacky exploits of Price and Task Force 141 or going to continue to lower review scores.

Eurogamer: 8/10 (yikes)

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-11-08-call-of-duty-modern-warfare-3-review

That the single-player story brings the Modern Warfare saga to a fairly definitive end is, then, cause for celebration. Whatever next year's entry brings, some measure of reinvention will be essential. For now, its exuberant blend of testicular bravado and blockbuster gloss ensures that Call of Duty retains its crown as the shooter genre's biggest, boldest rollercoaster ride for at least one more year.

                                    

Gameinformer: 9/10

http://www.gameinformer.com/games/call_of_duty_modern_warfare_3/b/xbox360/archive/2011/11/08/review.aspx

When it comes down to it, Modern Warfare 3 meets expectations. The core elements of multiplayer and the campaign remain fundamentally unchanged, but the game serves as a great example of how many subtle tweaks can add up to an improved overall product. Even with the recent turmoil at Infinity Ward, the remnants of that team (in conjunction with Sledgehammer) have put together a worthy sequel to one of the most successful franchises of all time.

                                                         

Joystiq: 4.5 out of 5

http://www.joystiq.com/2011/11/08/call-of-duty-modern-warfare-3-review-firing-down-the-sights/

Modern Warfare 3 is a great Call of Duty game, just as every other entry in the franchise is a great Call of Duty game. However, it shares more than quality with its predecessors – it, like its forefathers, leaves you waiting for something perfect.

                                               

Playstation Universe: 9/10

http://www.psu.com/Call-of-Duty--Modern-Warfare-3-Review--a013528-p0.php

Graphically, Modern Warfare 3 is pretty stale, and looks pretty close to what Modern Warfare 2 looked like. However, at a healthy constant rate of 60 FPS, the game looks good in motion. You won’t stop moving and take in any gorgeous scenery, or examine anything particular, which is a little disappointing. There is enough going on at all times to stimulate you visually, but it could look better.

Along with the review copy, Activision also provided a 5.1 surround sound system for the single-player campaign portion of the game. The new MW3 engine does incorporate better directional audio, so if you have the luxury of a 5.1/7.1 surround sound system/headset

It seems to be the trend right now to have at least one or two sites that give bad scores. When there are 100 videogame sites and news sites giving great reviews, the only way to stand out in the crowd is to give a bad review! I am sure they will get a lot of traffic now.

I don't even care about the score... how can you tell people that the latest game in a big series that has arguably the most widely played and addicting online multiplayer in the world has NO ONLINE PLAY???

And then at the bottom of the review it says...

Appeal:

    If you add 10 points to play online
    If you play just subtract 6 points

What the fuck kinda broken english bullshit is that?!?  LMAO!!!

I'm rather confused as why there is only 1 review on metacritic considering this game is out and it's such a big game.

I know right! Then super secretive Nintendo who makes you sign a waiver of secrecy before you tour its headquarters has a dozen (exaggeration) Zelda reviews out already!

I think we all already know what to expect about this game.

Epic, explosive single player that runs and guns through amazing set pieces and crazy scenarios.
The same exact multiplayer with some tweaks and improvements
Left-behind graphics due to using an old engine
Nothing revolutionary. Taking from the old and giving it a great new paint job.
Amazing sales and Activision CEOs rolling in money.

:P

Hopefully Activision gets some destruction/scenery interaction and vehicular gameplay going in the future. They really need to evolve the franchise, I think. I wonder how long "more of the same, but tweaked and slightly better!" will keep the series running strong. Ah well, that's why I play Battlefield 3.
