On release of this I followed reviews to try and gauge if it was worth buying or not and most of the reviews were less than complimentary to say the least.
People complained on how small the maps are and how its mw2.5 and how late their delivery was-which is just ridiculous considering this is a place to review GAMES and not royal mails delivery times!!!
This considered I bought Skyrim, but later I convinced the wife to buy mw3 for xmas and I cant believe I had left this long to play this game.
The graphics are nothing special but better than some reviewers basic description of "rubbish"-care to elaborate much? No because they put too much time into bitching about how royal mail let them down and how they waited a whole day longer to get the game!!!
This said the graphics were satisfactory, arkham asylum and fallout3's graphics werent mind blowing but most real gamers would agree they awesome games that keep you coming back for more( I have played fallout 3 five times all the way through and still want more)
The game play is again more than satisfactory, new chases, underwater taks and tasks, the slow motion when you blow up a door to save the people that have been captured is all still there there and working well-dont fix what isnt broken.
Also the online is worth playing too, people slag off the maps and this and that, but it caters for people that cant stand campers; if nothing had changed people would still bitch.
To conclude, this game is worth your time, it wont knock your socks off but its a far cry from the bad reviews it has received.
I wanted to rate it a 3.5 but couldnt and its certainly not a 4 out of 5, but mw3 always had an uphill fight with me as it follows on from arkham city, red dead redemption, fallout and new vegas.
