Trivia

The highway featured in "Thunder Run" is a very close depiction of the "Highway of death", the highway in which the Iraqi army was obliterated during the ending stages of the first gulf war. It was Iraq's only main road to Kuwait and was called the highway of Basra. See more »

Goofs

In the mission "Going Hunting", Iranian fighter jets are depicted to be Sukhoi 27/35's. The Iranian air force's primary fighter's include mostly American fighter jets, including the F-5E tiger II, the F-4 Phantom II and the infamous F-14 Tomcat (noted to be the only country other than the U.S. to have them). Other aircraft were Russian and french made aircraft that they took from Iraq in the first gulf war, including Mig-29's, but not Sukhoi 27's See more »

PC? Xbox? PS3? Who cares...BUY IT!
30 October 2011 | by phillo74-1See all my reviews

I've been waiting for this game to come out for the last year, specifically for the multiplayer. Single player? I can take it or leave it...and after hearing all the negatives about this campaign, I didn't hold my breath. Nevertheless, I was quite surprised when I eventually tackled it. Fair enough, it may not be very original, story-wise. Then again, what do you expect out of a Modern Combat shooter? Aliens? Giant gorillas? No? You expect what you see on the news! In light of this, then the story IS, in fact, entirely up to scratch. It's realistic. It's raw.

As for the multiplayer - well - it's absolutely heart pounding. I'm playing on PS3 and I was a little disappointed to discover that the graphics weren't a thousand leagues beyond bad company 2 (That's why I haven't rated it 10)...but still...there are times when you can't help but stop and admire some of the gorgeous textures, lighting, and movement. For a console, yes, I have to say that the graphics are very VERY beautiful! Next, the gameplay. Let's just say, during my first few rounds, I played with bated breath! It's chaos! The sound is fantastic, and nothing gets your heart pounding harder than the blur effect of oncoming suppressing fire! This IS war! By the way, I would like to say that i am an avid FPS player. I tell you this because I love the Call of Duty Franchise also. However, seen as MW3 looks like it'll be the version MW2.5, I really hope that battlefield 3 gives it a run for its money! My score: 9.2
