PostSubject: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3   Thu Nov 10, 2011 3:59 am

Since i posted about Modern Warfare 2 a couple years ago Im going to post about Modern warfare 3 after having finished it today

If you missed my post on MW2 i basically said this

I played it for PC
It was awesome

I would be surprised if it wasnt the game of the year

Ill try to go back, take some pics, and post them here, i shouldve taken some while playing, but i was so wrapped up in the gameplay and story that i didnt think of it
I feel like i need to explain my reaction to that
I really shouldnt review games immediately after playing them, or i should at least know that its not as good as i think it is when in that mind set after having completed it
I went into the singleplayer with 0 expectations and it ended up being decent, which surprised me so much so that i perceived it as being amazing
Honestly MW2 just won me over with that airport bit, you never really see that when playing a hero
Although, thinking back on it, what kind of CIA agent would just start shooting innocent civilians, undercover agents do crimes to keep their cover, but mass murder, that doesnt seem like something a heroic CIA agent would do



Anyway, this is about MW3, which i have just completed playing

Overall it was decent, but ridiculously short, lasting only about 5 and a half hours
Parts of it felt like a chore, and a bit repetitive
There was pretty much 1 enemy you fought the entire time, just 1000s of clones of the same enemy, there are rarely tanks and helicopters you can fight, and about 2 or 3 levels where you fight a different looking enemy that behaves the same way as the standard one
Most of the mechanics are reused from MW2 or MW1

There is 1 part on a plane that was kindve cool, but ridiculous, and an underwater scuba part that shouldve been longer/expanded on
Theres also a part that lasts all of 5 seconds that i really liked (before i knew it was only 5 seconds) where you take control of a civilian (this isnt a spoiler, ill talk more about this with spoilers though)
Other then that its just shoot everything until it explodes into fire/blood or reused sequences from MW1/2

My biggest complaint though is that it tries to force an emotional reaction out of the player
And i cant talk about it without going into spoilers so

Spoiler:
 

Also you cant change your FOV, and the FOV the game gives you is terrible, its like the characters you play have some sort of eye problem that causes them to not have any peripheral vision

I say "overall it was decent" because the story was finished up in a decent way and the overall experience was enjoyable, the guns fired well and shooting stuff for 5 hours is fun sometimes
MW2 was better



On a side note, i was thinking of something while playing it
You know how you switch perspectives between characters for different missions
80% of the time i was playing i imagined that the main character of the game was a disembodied cyborg time traveler with amnesia that could leap into people of the past and access their memories and just assumed that he was that person (since he has amnesia, and keeps getting amnesia every time he leaps)
It explains why/how you change perspectives, what happens when you die (you just go back in time a few seconds to redo that part again), how you can die as that person and keep going, and why/how your health regens (the person that the disembodied cyborg is in is just a shell so pain isnt much of a problem for him)
(It explains the FOV problem to, the cyborg has trouble interfacing with human eyes and cant see properly)

Its amazing how well a disembodied cyborg time traveler with amnesia can fit into the Modern Warfare series
I want to see them make a game about him, and his back story, it basically writes itself

Ive heard people call it MW 2.5 because of how little it has changed from MW2. I watched a video of the game on youtube, if it wasnt labeled MW3, i probably would have thought it was a MW2 replay. I dont really have anything to go off of but that (expecially since i only have a Wii).

Ok, the real question, this or battlefield 3, for ps3, I'm leaning towards battlefield. No trolling or being a fan boy, only facts and reasons

I would always recommend PC over PS3, but thats an entirely different topic

For PS3, I wouldnt get either and would instead get Skyrim

But if you want a multiplayer military FPS i would get Battlefield 3
Call of Duty's multiplayer sucks in comparison to Battlefield's in general
Battlefield 3 has vehicles, classes, teamwork, and huge battles (64 player, not sure if thats true for PS3)
Battlefield 3 feels more like a war since MW3 can only have 16 at max

Also in MW3 theres no teamwork and whoever gets a kill streak first will win simply by abusing the kill streak perks and racking up more kills to get more kill streaks
I guess if you are good at getting kill streaks and want to be a one man army then go with MW3
If your bad at getting kill streaks youll just get owned


If youre looking for a singleplayer experience I would pick Skyrim again
But if youre looking for a military FPS singleplayer experience I would pick MW3
Call of Duty has always had better singleplayer then Battlefield in general(with the exception of Bad Company 1)
The signleplayer only works if youve played the other 2 though

Of course, skyrim is the best choice, then there's Arkham city and uncharted 3, but me and my friends wanted a game that we can all play online together. I'm leaning towards bf3 and I'm trying to convince the others. And thanks pat

Count the ways in which you've fallen short of Pat's expectations.

And i agree with going with battlefield. the only time i played it i was drunk, but that one time was pretty fun, and some how we got hit with an earth quake, and then were flying planes--it was pretty epic.
