I brought the Hardened Edition and that is what I am going to review.

-- Packaging --
I was quite surprised by the size of the box it came in, I was expecting something a little slimmer based on the contents (a card and a mini field guide) but everything had its own area and fitted perfectly (Although I found the field guide to a bit tough to get back in once I got it out). Overall I am happy with the contents and the packaging.

-- Game Manual --
This is just a tiny little issue that I have with some games released these days, including this one. the games manual is literally 10 pages long and most of that is credits. When I think manual I imagine a little booklet containing colourful images and illustrations showing the various controls and perhaps even a back story and profiles of some of the characters but no, this is the bare minimum of what you can call a manual, the instructions is just a white box with the various icons on it such as grenade, ammo etc. Was it really too much effort to at least show what it actually looks like IN GAME??

-- The Game --
The campaign I found moderately enjoyable but I felt that something was missing and that something was a little variety every now and then, the previous games had levels which had you in control of a gunship, on a speed boat, sneaking through snow and whatnot but. Don't get me wrong MW3 has some of these things but they are more bite sized and they are over way too quickly. But I still loved the game I found it enjoyable to control some of the guns and airships brief as it was.

I've always enjoyed the single player aspect to Infinity Ward's games and so the campaign was a great way to round off the previous 2 games following the same story line, just a shame it only lasts about 6 hours on Veteran again really.

Spec Ops is good, it'll keep you entertained for a fair amount of time, I'm currently ranked in the Top 100 for the Stay Sharp challenge which is always a nice achievement to pop home after work and try and get higher up the rankings!

Multiplayer is the core of this game and it's almost as if they just ported MW2's multiplayer, changed a few perk names, added some awful maps and slapped a 3 on the box.

If they think that they can kid people into thinking it's COD4 esque by changing the perk names to ones that were used in CoD4, they're having a laugh. But it sells.

It's playable, but it's just the same. I played Black Ops a crazy amount when it first came out, was about 10th prestige by Christmas (University Student...) but now, even with work etc. I'm just not enjoying the game enough to play it loads. I regret paying this amount for the hardened edition too!

Hopefully... Black Ops 2! But we say that every year...

Alot was expected from this game, in my opinion it has delivered. Let me start with the multi-player. The maps are great fun and there are many. Personal favourites of mine are Resistance, Bootleg, Lockdown and Hardhat. I personally find this maps the most fun, although there are alot of other ones. The array of guns, perks and unlcocks are vast. Moving onto the Special ops, you can choose from Survival or Missons. Survival is comparable to Zombies from previous games, or Horde from Gears of War. You fight endless waves, similar to zombies, but youre fighting human soldiers. Similar to Gears you actually get boss levels now. The boss levels are Juggernauts, although there are some levels you fight against Helicopters, you can usually take these down with a few clips of an MP5. In the mission levels they are what they say on the tin, you have to meet an objective successfully. Typically, the Story mode is too short, as it normally is. I wont spoil the story for the player, but it is a very fun and interesting story with its usually twists and turns. Elite is a good app you can download to your console, also access it via your computer. I look forward to the new map pack downloads that we will soon be getting, as normally there are some brilliant new maps. The gameplay is typical COD. It hasnt changed much, it doesnt need to, same with the graphics. Hope this helps!

Game is brilliant but DO NOT and i mean DO NOT buy this hardened edition. All of the DLC codes in these hardened editions are now EXPIRED. Activision have told me they are useless and are no longer valid. so DO NOT BUY HARDENED just buy the standard edition!

A good sequel to what I thought was the best game of all times MW2 was, and I still think it is. Obviously, with 90% of Infinity Ward's staff having either quit or getting fired I really wasn't expecting much from this. In fact, I was Battlefield 3 through and through until I rented BF3 and seriously didn't like it onyl because it was overhyped.

The single player cannot be compared to any of the previous two MWs, MW3 is louder and crazier, in my opnion MW2 is just unbelievably epic from start to finish (even the multiplayer is epic on MW2). Well MW3 is not even 1/5 as epic as MW2, but it is fun to play there is a lot of things blowing up and it is loud loud loud and I liked it, the multiplayer on MW3 suits my style of play better than MW2 because I like to be 100% stealth and appear on the mini map as little as possible and with the new perks it's almost as if it was made for me.

People say the graphics have been the same ever since the first Modern Warfare. Having played all three back to back I notice a huge difference from one to the other and i really do not understand why people say that the graphics have been fro all three titles, it really isn't. In addition, there is no point developing a new engine because it's going to lag and there will be new consoles coming up in 2013 anyway. The only reason people say this was because of BF3 big advertising saying how great their graphics were and all...YES THEY WERE RIGHT!!! but that was all the PC version, misleading advertising it all was!!! The MW3 graphics on consoles are much better BF3's any day!! PC? no contest BF3 wins hand down!
