It won't fare better with critics but it will be the far superior game. Just look at Black Ops 1 reviews, the fact it has worse reviews than MW3 means critics have Infinity Ward's VIDEOGAMES lodged so far up somewhere that they can't tell their Angry Birds from their Mario.

If anyone care nowegian Pressfire.no gave the singleplayer a 4/6

Prediction: PS4 will be more powerful and cheaper than XBOX ONE

Their metacritic's are almost exactly the same, and I found MW3 to be a far better game than Black Ops.

I play on PC. Going from dedicated servers to matchmaking is not a pleasant experience.



When the embargo ends?

Gametrailers review is gonna be tomorrow at midnight, but they usually put their reviews late, so...
(they just announced too that Wii U reviews will be up just on launch day)

The majority of reviewers didn't.
