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 »

Close up shop, Activision..
10 November 2011 | by phillo74-1See all my reviews

I was a massive COD fan. MASSIVE!!! And although i was warned, and warned, and warned again about MW3, i decided to give it the benefit of the doubt. Then what happened??? I got scr*wed-over by Bobby Kotick, Sledgehammer, and Activision...all one after another.

I've never been so disappointed in my whole life. Meanwhile these guys are laughing all the way to the bank.

MW3 is a carbon copy of MW2. FACT! The guns are mediocre at best. The lag is atrocious. The maps are a similar layout to MW2 (In fact its just like a $60 map-pack) And..worst of all....Activisions laziness is evident in everything from the fonts to the trademark chickens they have clucking around the place. I'd say they didn't have to do a tap of work on this product 'coz its all the same!!!

Then there's the positive reviews...they elude me completely!!! I have no clue how a trusted reviewer could recommend you spend your hard-earned-cash on something so substandard. This leads me to the conclusion that brown envelopes must be involved.

Then you have Glen Schoefield BEGGING...that's right...BEGGING (google it) players to give it a good review on metacritic...and that just annoys me so much more!!! Begging us to make them more money when it clearly is...NOT...DESERVED.

On an finishing note...I honestly hope the world learns from this disgrace. And going by user reviews the world over.....it looks like the COD fanbase is already falling apart. Enjoy my $60, Activision. I hope you buy yourself something nice.

My score: 2/10 (and that's just because I was feeling generous)
