Being a long time Call of Duty fan and having a quite dislike towards Battlefield and Halo, I picked up modern warfare 3. Dissapointment struck me. Campaign? Boring, Predictible and all round poor. Spec Ops? The DLC Spec Ops Missions should have been on the disk, lets leave it at that. Survival? Unorginial, reppettive and not very manic or fun. Please let Multiplayer be good... No. Everything in the multiplayer is built or orientated in to making a poor game. The gun balance is rediculous, ACR 6.8, Type 95, AS50, FMG-9, Striker... ALL have still NOT been patched. Quickscoping ruins the experience because the point of a sniper rifle is LONG RANGE COMBAT. By having quickscoping you are throwing balance out the window. Secondly, the perk setup is dreadful, allowing you to have Assassin, Blind Eye AND Dead Silence. The specialist package is too powerful, the assault package is STILL stackable. The Emblems and Titles are no where near as good as Black Ops. Drop Shotting ruins the experience because all you do is die from being shot in the knee (Skyrim joke not intended). Sub-machine guns have way to much range as you can kill someone cross map easirly with a submachine gun. Shotguns are rediculous, some are too powerful and others are underpowered. The riot shield... well i simply can't understand why they bothered to bring that back. Machine Pistols are still in the game (which is pointless because there is overkill so why they put in Machine Pistols I don't know). No really new innotive killstreaks, same graphics as MW2, game engine feels groggy and old. Deathstreaks return which nobody liked so why they brought them back is beond God. The maps are the worst in the series, practically every map has so many flaws, the only one that is actually good is Hardhat. The good points: I like the new killstreak counter so you know how many kills you need to get to your next killstreak and I like how helping your team gets you points towards rewards. That's it.
To Sum up: They have taken nothing from Black Ops (which was very good) and improved on very little. By buying this game you are buying a half completed game that was rushed and to be honest should have been cancelled in early development. Infinity Ward: Stop making CoD, you ruining it.
