Modern Warfare 3 a new Era
23 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Call of Duty Modern warfare 3 is the newest in the Call of Duty sequel selling an amazing 6.5 million on day release setting a new record. Let's start of with the campaign where you continue your hunt for villain Makarov battling through all sorts of new areas and enemies. You are hit with a lot of new features through this new campaign such as mortar towers, Juggernaught suits and assault drones. Also unlike Modern Warfare 2 history you get to play as the man himself Captain Price and hopefully end Makarov's run once and for all. While playing through the campaign you play as two new characters Frost from delta force and Yuri working along side Soap and Captain Price. The Main problem with the campaign is not the graphics or ideas but the length I believe it stops people overplaying the online game play as if the campaign was long you could mix and match between campaign and online. However anyone looking to buy the game should be prepared for new never been seen before features and new areas which have never been explored it is a definitely improved campaign from previous Call of Duty's.

The online game play has been frowned upon more being too much like Modern Warfare 2. I can assure you this isn't true. The game play modes, classes, maps and kill streaks are all new. Firstly the classes are certainly not the same as Mw2 as in these game they are more personal to your Game play style. As well as the new perks which keep upgrading for points after turning pro you get extra things added to make it that much more special. Firstly proficiency adds a wide range of mini perks such as kick, impact and many more to suit close and long range gunners or stealth like players. Also your gun now has it's own level making you test out all of the different attachments to gain points for your gun to level up and get the top gold cameo. This stops people staying with one gun class like Modern Warfare 2's Ump45 as once your gun is max level this implies to you that you have master it and need to move on. The assault and support kill streaks suits is completely new to call of duty and you can have a separate set of kill streaks for each class meaning you don't have to change around your classes for different game modes. Firstly the support point streaks they are now called suit objective type players who gain experience capping objectives and supporting their team . These point streaks are mostly defence type streaks like radar, advanced radar and EMP to help your team defend objectives and support people using assault point streaks. Assault point streaks suit the kill whoring type players as are things such as chopper gunner, assault drone and ah6 over watch these take time to shoot down and help these types of players maintain a good kill to death ratio. Finally the nuke on Modern Warfare 2 I believe was way to easy to get so making it so you have to get 25 kills in a row no kill streaks count takes a lot more skill to do. Another good thing about the online is the new game play modes such as kill confirmed perfect for people who hate camping.

Now there are problems with the online for example no stopping power sometimes results in people taking unbelievable amount of bullets and you die from two bullets sometimes showing the game can be unfair at times. Also what would be good of any Call of Duty is to have their own server as although host migration is more than often successful it can get annoying when it happens a lot. Looking at Call of Duty's sales they surely have enough to splash out on their own server like games such as MAG which uses Sony as a server rather than a player host. Finally one of the main problems for the online is the hit detection, this is where if you are near an enemy your character moves slightly without your control as you can sense them. Sometimes online this can happen from quite far distances resulting in enemies being able to preliminary fire at you as they know you are coming.

Private matches differ from any other game in the franchise as they have their own custom game modes which are not playable online. Some examples are infected, Juggernaught and team Juggernaught. Also due to popularity last year wager matches one in the chamber and gun game have returned yet they are specific to private matches. The difference this time is in wager type matches the host can choose what classes will be used to go in favour of your parties preferences. Also the final thing about private matches is that you weapon custom classes in private matches are different to your online custom classes so you can have specific classes for private and specific classes for online. The game did bring back special ops missions like on Modern Warfare 2 but as well as this you can play survival mode which is basically Modern Warfare's version of zombies. Survival see's you battling off all sorts of different kinds of enemies to achieve the highest wave (round) possible. The missions are pretty similar objective wise to Modern Warfare 2 such as time trials, defending and planting objectives which is a bit of a let down. Also the fact that it is only two player isn't as fun to play in parties or even finding a match online as there is only one other person with you so it can get boring. The most noticeable change to special ops is you have a rank so you can level up and unlock new things to help you in the missions and survival making it that little bit easier.
