  Unbiased Review MW3

| | See all TheElder11's reviews (2)

I don't want to start by comparing this with MW2. As a game in itself it is good. The weapons and ideas are modern and feel professional. The multiplayer is smooth and you will enjoy this game a lot. Comparing it to MW2, I would say the only reason to buy it is for the tonne of new multiplayer maps available as you can get very bored running round the same environments. Its great to play this new installment because people dont know the maps well enough to camp at hotspots. Most people in MW2 can throw a grenade from the other side of the map and kill someone because they have practised thousands of times. This novelty will wear down. There is a great range of playing styles - deathmath, kill confirmed, infection etc.

Negatives - The gameplay is really smooth, but there are still a few issues with running (having to slick down is a pain) and the servers lag quite a lot which gives a distinct advatage to the other team. There is a massive innacuracy when using weapons. It may be down to lag (a commone issue you might have guessed) but the shooting is not very balanced and often when attacking one vs. one, its pretty much luck on who wins. The stab kills instantly even if a shotgun is fired. There is amassive error in respawning too, you can respawn right next to an enemy in multiplayer which is rubbish for a game where one hit kills.

Overall - If you have a choice buy MW2 for the main story line, its excellent and wait till this is really cheap and class it as a 'patch' on MW2 that does nothing differently, just add the content they probably wanted to in the first game (but ran out of time or budget). If you already played MW2 then play Battlefield till this is cheap. If you are a fan you will have this already so you wont be readiing!

not bad at all, quality time passer if your stuck with an hour spare and a Live account.

  If its not broken why fix it?

If you love COD then you will like this, simply because it does what it says on the tin, no one buys this for single player mode.
It's all about the multiplayer which is still very good after all these years, to be honest I had enough of the RC cars on black ops!haha
Some people compare this to battelefield but they are 2 different games, COD is something you can just get into straight away but battlefield takes time and is more tactically based as you can't just go in all guns blazing which a lot of people like doing, I have both BF3 and MW3 but prefer MW3 as I can get on there with all my mates and have a laugh without taking it too seriously as I have found some people are on BF3.
I love this game, and say you shouldn't listen to the negative reviews and just try it out :)

The follow up from ( belive it or not ) to MW2 ,the single campaign is really well polished if a tad short but the multi player seems that much crisper ,and now you can level up your guns ,the shot gun has now been given primary weapon status and it has to be my weapon of choice . PS if you don't like COD games ,DON'T GET THEM ! don't fill up the reveiws with bigoted comparissons to pther FPS games ! ( you know what I am talking about )

Ignore all the other people. Online multi-player is amazing!!!!!! Anyone who is a CoD lover will love this game. The multi-player has a few people who quick scope and camp but don't let the people who play the game put you off it. I would definitely recommend the game. 10/10

MULTIPLAYER REVIEW .. If your a fan of call of dutys then this is another good shooter . Nothing more nothing less . I enjoy playing free 4 all most and found the levels on mw3 good fun for this mode . I dont feel the game deserves such low marks from people that state they love modern warfare 1 & 2 and black ops cos this is much of the same . If your looking for something new and fresh feeling that cod is stale then why not try a different game all together . I recommend this game to any one who loves fps online gaming . U can grab it cheap enough now and no worrys of those online passes with this game . A GOOD SHOOTER :D

  Good enough.

The Modern Warfare series started off well, and seeing as this may be the final episode, I can't say I was that impressed.

It's nothing you have never seen before produced by Infinity Ward and Treyarch, which some people may argue that it's a good thing, as it's following a particular game-style.
Yet, in my opinion, they could have improved the gameplay a lot more and in certain moments I felt like I was back in the first MW just by the repetitive flow of the game.

Definitely not the best game of 2011 despite expectations, but if you are a fan of the series, then it is worth buying.

  Very Disappointing

This is a virtual copy of MW2, apart from new maps. Very little has improved. I find that this game is a complete scam if you ask me. Storyline was dull and poorly made, multiplayer still glitchy as ever and whoever has the fastest internet connection will win.

If you want a great military shooter game, get Battlefield 3.
