Average SP, terrible MP,
This review is from: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (PS3) (Video Game)Modern Warefare 3 is disappointing compared to MW2. Firstly the single player isn't as exciting and, like other people have said on here, you just don't get a chance to slow down. The missions are so fast and sometimes uninteresting, I found myself just going through them to find a better mission....which never came. I can recall many missions in MW1 and MW2 that I've completed over and over, but I can only think of one or two that I would in MW3.
The Special Ops part of the game has improved from MW2, the missions are well though out. They remind me of the Splinter Cell MP missions that fill in the gaps from the single player game, which is great. Playing with a friend or online is great, but for some reason I can't connect and play online. Whenever I do, I always have lag... unlike MP which I can play fine. The multiplayer part of MW3 reminds me of Treyach's(WOW and Black Ops maker) MP game. The graphics are poor and the playability sucks. There is so much to customize, there are many pros and cons to this. The lay out of the menus remind me of Black ops too, a game which I returned within weeks of buying. The levels remind me of Black Ops too, they are sketchy, dull and there are way too many places to shoot from.
Overall this is a very disappointing game, having had two years and two previously great games, MW3 is such a let down.
