“…the competitive multiplayer still offers the same sweet satisfaction
you've come to expect from the series. There are still some lingering technical
issues that can result in laggy matches or frozen screens, but these problems
are relatively rare. This is some of the best online shooter action around, and
with the daunting challenges of Spec Ops and the exciting, globe-trotting
campaign, Modern Warfare 3 stands tall as another great descendant of the game
that changed a generation.” 8.5/10 – Gamespot
THE GOOD – Climactic campaign, Lots of varied and challenging Spec Ops
action, Exciting and entertaining competitive multiplayer, Spec Ops profile
spreads the satisfaction of leveling up.
THE BAD – Multiplayer sticks closely to familiar formula.
“…Modern Warfare 3 takes the fantastic series we’ve come to love over
the years and iterates on it with great success. The multiplayer is hands-down
the best it has ever been, with more features, more modes and a ton of new
levels and ways to interact via Call of Duty Elite. The singleplayer campaign
and Spec Ops mode add value to the overall package, creating something that may
not be perfect, but is too damn addicting to pass up.” 9/10 – IGN
