The Game that keeps churning! Ok, that may or may not be a good term to use, but I thought of it on the top of my head. Yes, Modern Warfare 3. The third game in the series. Is it true that the third game in the series is always the best? Does MW3 get that title? Let’s go through my review to see what I think.
Let’s get this out the way. The last two Modern Warfare games wasn’t that great. You can CLEARLY tell that they made all of the levels first, then they work on the story. This game, is a little better in the series. This game starts off where the last one ends. But this time, the battleground is in the U.S itself(Scary, huh). Your fighting near your monuments. The story doesn’t do to well for me. It’s like it’s other games in the series, but it is slightly better. What I did like about it, is that your able to go to different areas: Like fighting in a submarine.
I hate to say it, but if you have played the other COD‘s game in the series, you will see that the graphics are just like they was. Not like it’s a bad thing, but that may turn some people off of the game. My one favorite thing about COD is the work that the level designers put into the game. You can clearly feel like you are in a war. At times I wish this was a open world game so I can move as I please through it. Every detail that was in the game screamed out “War”. If I have to say a negative thing about the graphics/level of the game, it is a handicap for the story. Which is why majority users don’t play this game for the campaign.
The bread and butter of this game series….The Multiplayer. Just like all the others, you fight online. I have to say this. In my opinion, it seems like this is just Black Ops with new maps and features. But, it’s a little bit better. Although, the maps seems a lot smaller. It’s not predator or plane friendly. I wouldn’t waste my time in trying to get that perk. I haven’t spend as much time on this like I have with Black Ops, but I can tell that they made some progress. Like, campers will have an EXTREMELY hard time to camp. You also have a point streak instead of a kill streak(Which is better). You get the same features as you did in the other COD games: Team Deathmatch, Capture The Flag, Domination, etc. With all this you can go wild!
Now, this is what I have been spending my countless sleepless hours on. There’s one mode, Special Ops, that makes a return in MW3. This is supremely fun. And a lot better than the last one. What makes it great, when have a good friend/online buddy to play with. It has a lot of levels from the start. And you will blow your mind trying to get a 3 star. The next mode that is new, is survival mode. I have probably spend over 4-5 hours on this alone with my friend. In this mode you fight off waves of enemies. You have normal A.I, then dogs then Juggernauts. It can get INTENSE if you don’t find the sweet spot. Luckily enough, they let you buy weapons and equipments to combat these enemies. My favorite yet, is calling in the delta squad to help us out. I have been using the sentry gun in the hardest levels so far, which in most waves is more useful than the delta(Just because there is a wave or two, a Jugg or a Apache can take it out in a second). This mode is the best mode ever in the series. I love to play it(Especially in the hard rounds). Even if you think you have the enemies timed down to where they drop, you will be surprised when they are not in that position. I would tell you to buy the game just for this mode.
This game has tons of features. Maybe in the future you want to beat the campaign again. On another difficulty or just to see the story again. The multiplayer mode will bring you back time and time again. But, I believe that Survival mode and Special Ops will have people eagerly breaking their controller’s to play it. If you are like me, this mode will be the reason you pop this game in your console! Why you still reading? Go play…..
