This review is from: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)Most of the reviews on here have stated there disappointment at this game and I'm afraid I'm no different.
The single player to be fair was pretty good and lasted a reasonable amount of time.
The spec ops mode for me is the best thing about the game. Eliminating wave after wave of enemies with a friend is excellent fun.
The multiplayer however, is where it lets it self down badly. Apart from a couple of tweaks, the game play itself isn't too different from Black Ops and MW2 and I essentially don't have a problem with this. What I do have a major problem with is the map design, it's awful. There's far too many buildings for people to hide in (which a lot of people seem to do) and not enough open scenery. There should be a good mix of both in each map. Most of the maps are also very small and similar to each other.
I don't agree with the comments on here that say this is a map pack for MW2. MW2 would never have maps as bad as this; most of the maps were excellent and provided hours of fun. I know it has a few pains with some of the perks but MW2 was and still is a great game and requires at least a modicum of skill to attain decent stats, this game doesn't. Also, nearly every map on MW2 gave you the option of sniping or run and gun, MW3 rarely does (unless you quickscope). I apologise if I've made to many comparisons to MW2 but I expected MW3 to be of similar standard with some improvements, sadly it isn't.
