Better than Black Ops, but still a let down,
This review is from: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (Wii) (Video Game)
After the major disappointment of Black Ops, I was hoping for more of COD:reflex. The result is a mixed bag. There are some visually exciting pieces, however the feeling of being "on rails" in very strong. One example would be the SAS episode - I hardly got to fire a shot & still completed it successfully. The action becomes a bit repetitive after a while, and the the actions jumps from place to place leaving you feeling a bit dazed. I finished it in a couple of evenings & the ending was a total let down - just press B to finish - errr what!?
However, the biggest issue is that it's just too dark! Half the time, you can't make out enemies, and since a lot of it is indoors the only way to navigate is to blindly aim for the "follow" dot. I found myself vainly trying to activate my night vision on more than one occasion because I just couldn't see what I was doing.
My first attempt at multiplayer was also a mixed bag - the levels look interesting, but out of 10 players, I was the only one who didn't have an 80 level. Maybe I was just unlucky, but it was a steep learning curve!
Overall, I'm glad I bought it second hand, otherwise I would be feeling mighty ripped off!
