Inbetween Blacks ops and MW2,
This review is from: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
OK for me multiplayer is the thing. I loved Modern Warfare 2 but not so much Black Ops. This is based on the multiplayer alone. This is where people spend the Majority of their time.
Good points. The maps graphically are great looking and it does make a change for the maps to be much more non camper friendly. The Guns are pretty much what we've seen throughout the Modern Warfare series. Levelling the guns to your play style is actually really good as some guns I would consisder not to use but with these added extras it makes it more enjoyable to Pick your next unlocked weapon and set it up. The perks too are great, taking out stopping power, makes each player as vunerable as the other. Golden weapons are also back in the game. The 3 types of killstreaks are great. Assault, Support and the specials, this allows you to run with more than 3 perks once you get the kills.
Bad points: Well being a very keen Cod4 fan, prestiged twice and then moving onto MW2 I thought that things could only get better. But I was wrong and I have now got to level 75 in one day of playing (in hours game play time) And now this has started to bore me. I have become more familiar to all the maps and there is nothing more than a one dimensional side to each and every map. You are unable to climb 97 percent of surfaces. So each map although there are 16 becomes familiar far too quick. The engine is exactly the same so dont think there is going to be anything special here as you will automatically have the feel for the game. It is infact an expensive 16 map pack to almost being MW2. Although it doesnt at all play as smooth as modern warfare 2. Match macking after almost 4 days is a disaster and the ability for most people to host is a joke, It seems as if Activision have made poor judgement on the fact that Black Ops server were good. And boy this is were they have messed up completely. You would think that a multi million Franchise deserves more than poor servers to the point DEDICATED. If you are the host then truly you will love it but if not then expect to open up a half clip into a person. With no hit markers showing to watch a replay to see yourself die without firing a single shot. This infact is the same as Black Ops today. And the spawns are like Nuke Town used to be until they patched it.
And who the hell cares about Call of duty Elite, its a matter of fiqures, not actual game play. Majorities again just want to play the game with their friends and enjoy it. Its a such a poor let down to what could have been. Do your self a favour stick to Mw2 or Black ops til they can actually make a game considerably better other than worse.
