Goofs

Near the end of Black Tuesday, once you secure the keys from Russian Sailors on the Bridge of the Sub, your Teammate reports to Overlord, and they provide grid coordinates to launch the subs Cruise Missiles against the Russian Fleet. Overlord provides a 6-digit grid, specifying a 100M AOE (Area of Effect). This would not be sufficient data to launch against a fleet of warships, as all those ships don't fit in a 100M grid. This feat would likely require multiple 8-digit grids (10M precision), one JDAM for each ship. See more »

It had things that were good for it, but for me, it's unfortunately outweighed by its flaws. Especially when it comes to multiplayer.
7 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Pros:

A great spec ops mode with a variety of missions if you downloaded all the dlc; as well as a fun survival mode. The spec ops side of MW3, depending on your tastes, will keep you sucked to it.

Simple controls, as every CoD game has.

A story that was decent, and ended the MW series in an okay way.

Some fun modes in MW3 multiplayer.

Cons:

The fact that this game seems to cater to newer players with death streaks such as final stand and deadman's hand. You might feel frustrated feeling like you got cheated out of a kill because a player using either of these unearned streaks killed you.

Inconsistent hit detection. Sometimes it may take one or a few bullets to kill a foe in multiplayer; other times it may take half of your gun's magazine to kill them. It was bad for gameplay, and easy to feel like I got screwed out of a kill.

Certain guns weren't nerfed properly. I believe when the game came out, guns such as the spas 12 were powerful, when it came to range and power; but after a while, the range and damage were weakened not only on this shotgun, but on several other shot guns.

Too many camping spots. I feel there were too many spots for players to camp at that made the game hard to play; and if they had a ghillie suit, they could probably blend with the environment(s).

I wasn't a fan of the campaign. I really loved the campaigns for the previous MW games, and feel MW3 didn't live up to those previous two. I feel had the original employees for IW stayed, the campaign for MW3 would've been much different, and I could've enjoyed it more.

Short Summary:

For me, MW3 was strong in areas such as having a good spec ops mode and simple gameplay, but modes such as single and multiplayer were the weaker links. With multiplayer being the worst; since it had tons of issues when it came to abuse of game changing and unearned deathstreaks, a system which helped noobs too much, bad hit detection, environments which were made for camping and unbalanced guns. As for the campaign, it just doesn't live up to what the other two campaigns were.
