Fun but frustrating,
This review is from: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
A fun game that unfortunately lacks the depth or thought process involved in other current FPS games (e.g. BF3) and missed out on some nice updates (I would really like to see what my actual health level is!).
As a long-standing COD (and general FPS) player I do enjoy this game. I like the guns and the levelling system, and find that many of the maps are fine, just dependent upon game type.
Game modes are broadly similar to previous COD games, and my current favourite is "Kill Confirmed", as it largely prevents camping if you actually want your team to win.
The only things that really bug me about this game are the inconsistencies in hit recognition (including melee), the apparent lags (most notably for hosts) and the ridiculous spawn mechanism (oh, hello entire enemy team).
Kill-streaks are over-powered too and the COD series really needs to consider what they're doing with these. I personally would recommend a strip-back to basics.
Annoyingly addictive? Definitely.
