Critics Like Modern Warfare 3, But Some Users Don't

Modern Warfare 3, the latest installment in Activision's ever-popular shooter series Call of Duty, has received waves of positive reviews. While the game's score on Metacritic has reached an impressive 90, the user reviews score is currently 2.8, as numerous players complain about how the game did not meet their expectations. Wait, a second here. Just what the hell did they expect? Most of the complaints range from "It's the same as all previous CoD games..." etc. Well, yeah, duuh! That's Call of Duty for ya.

The game has arrived to stores today in the US. Here's the word from the publisher:

"Co-developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games, Modern Warfare 3 delivers a full assault on gamers' senses, including an intense single-player campaign that picks up immediately following the events of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and escalates into World War 3, as well as groundbreaking upgrades to the beloved Special Ops like the all-new Survival Mode. Special Ops serves as the perfect springboard to Modern Warfare 3's re-imagined multiplayer, featuring the series' trademark visceral gun-on-gun combat, a revamped pointstreak system with the introduction of 'Strike Packages,' devastating new modes like 'Kill Confirmed' and other gameplay enhancements, new features and a bevy of new weapons, equipment, and perks."

So, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is rated 'M' and is currently available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows PC and Nintendo Wii for $49.99.

Our review of Modern Warfare 3 will be up soon.

Call of Duty: Black Ops is an excellent game, so I'm definately getting Modern Warefare 3 sometime.

Call of Duty 1 was fun, but I believe it went downhill after that.

Yep, users shit-canning a good game for really myopic and just plain dumb reasons; nothing new about that.

Remember, cynics tend to get over-represented in meta-reviews, because people who hate a game and have an axe to grind, more actively seek opportunities to share their opinions, and do so more loudly and passionately than they genuinely feel in attempt to compensate for the discomforting realisation that their opinion is that of an insignificantly tiny minority.

Call of Duty, Call of Duty: United Offensive and Call of Duty 2 are the best WWII shooter games are ever played.
  Fatty: Yes. Everything after that was shit.

What a wast of money, This should have been a $40 Expanshion or DLC.
