Hi, Absolutely Slim, I like playing them all, even though I'm not the best at these shooters lol. I told you what the opinions are in my house, I'll also admit I played the game for an hour on release day and not felt like playing it again after. I suppose I'll do the campaign and that it.
Your not missing anything I can safely say Slim.
Actually I think something is wrong in this Topic referring to "Infinity Ward's latest masterpiece(?)" correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it's a "Sledgehammer" game now not Infinity Ward ?
Looks like they bought the plans from COD 4 imo added a few little bits to the menu and thats it.
ALL SO seen before stuff in my opinion

The broad appeal of the Call of Duty games is amazing really. Even with it being new and well reviewed this weeks Xbox Live charts still show Black Ops as top, BF3 second and MW2 third!
Battlefield 3 climbs as Black Ops maintains t - Shacknews.com

You can be sure next week will show MW3 top.

A college of mine went to the mid night release, traded it in the same day LOL!!

I will get it/borrow it to complete the story but I've not played COD online properly for a long time.

I hear one positive review, and multiple negative. It's not just the haters.

I really do think it's a poor effort this time round, they really need to do something new for the next one, but i know they won't.

Looking forward to Respawn Entertainments first project.

Brilliantly honest review from bit-tech.net

I really do love their reviews as they never sugar coat it lol.

Quote:
M'eh.

The problem with the continued success of the Call of Duty series is that its rhythm became familiar long ago. An endless network of trenches, Nazis and glowing TNT charges which you held 'E' in front of formed the framework for the first games and, while you could never call them bad, they did suffer from diminishing returns. Fans, tired of fighting the same war forever, cried out for change - what they got was Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

And, for a while, that was enough. Modern Warfare kept everything we loved about Call of Duty, and brought it clapping and whooping into the modern age - but Activision's biggest problem since then is that it's fallen back into bad habits. As was the case with the WWII series before it, Modern Warfare has become tired and transparent in its lack of ambition. An endless network of city streets, Russians and glowing C4 charges for you to hold 'E' in front of form the network of the latest games.

Call of Duty has become boring again, and it's once more because the series has proved incapable of offering anything new to punters fatigued by a procession of too-familiar faces and levels. Even the controversies that surround the game seem obvious and hollow, with a new spectator level where you watch your fictional wife and daughter blown up acting as this iteration's answer to No Russian. Modern Warfare 2's civilian slaughter at least formed an important (if not interesting) aspect of the plot - the events in Modern Warfare 3 are a foregone conclusion, just like the rest of the game.

For us, the franchise has actually become painful, as we're behoved to relay certain details in spite of the fact that you'll be able to guess them easily, assuming you didn't know them already. And actually cared.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Review
Click to enlarge

So.

The single-player game picks up shortly after the events of Modern Warfare 2. It follows two main paths, alternating between Price's continuing quest for revenge and random snapshots of the larger war. There are quicktime events. The campaign is very short. There are stealth missions. There are escort missions. There are set-piece power-ups, such as Predator Drones, at regular intervals. There are lots and lots of turret sequences.

We have to relay these facts, but you don't really need to be told, do you? Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is fundamentally the same as all the other games in the Call of Duty series and, face it, nobody was really expecting anything different. That we have to proclaim it in this way, and that doing so could be considered controversial is one of the most depressing things about the games industry.

Next we'll talk about the sodding multiplayer, which we'll acknowledge is the main reason most people buy the game, and which has undergone a handful of tweaks that enliven the action without fundamentally changing it from the standard template. Again.

you can read on here....

55% was the rating they gave.

lag, support streaks, f*cked up spawns and quick scoping just turn every game into a lottery.
