If you love the other Modern Warfare Games, you'll love this. It is that simple. I bought it on release day and I'm still playing it. I still rate it higher than Black ops 1 and 2. The multi-player experience is second to none. The mechanics in other fps games are aweful. Some people say its dated, to them I say, so what? Don't fix it if it ain't broke, right?. The engine is the one we all love, the one that we spend countless hours playing for. Buy this game, it won't dissapoint. If you didn't like any of the modern warfare games, don't buy it. UnlIke other games there are no curveballs with this game, no supposedly sublte changes that ruin the elements that we know and love. You know what to expect and love or hate it for those reasons. Buying this game is NOT a gamble, as I've tried to explain here, you know what you are getting yourself into.
