Modern Warfare 3

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

The campaign mode provides an epic conclusion to the Modern Warfare 3, wrapping up the tangled storylines of Captain Price and McTavish in a crazy large-scale Hollywood-esque thrill ride. However, a large number of 'on rails' style gunner-style sequences and a rather uninspired take on the multiplayer leave a little something to be desired... At the end of the day, there's not much to complain about, considering everything was well established with the first two games, but it would have been nice to have a little further departure and a couple of more risks taken to truly advance the franchise.

The Pros: 

+Massive-scale story mode, and dramatic conclusion to the MW franchise.

+Addition of the Survival Mode is an intelligent one.

+Class-based system helps to shake up the game's competitve multiplayer a bit.

The Cons: 

-Everything feels like it leans a little too hard on the previous title.

-Campaign mode features a lot of 'on rails' moments that can detract from the challenge of the story-mode.

To be completely honest, Modern Warfare 3 was a title I'd almost entirely wrote off. With the drama surrounding the majority of the Infinity Ward team walking away after Modern Warfare 2, I didn't think it was going to be a proper "Modern Warfare" title now with the bulk of the creative team having walked away from the franchise.

New Modern Warfare 3 Trailer Has Lots of Drama, Slow-Motion And Stuff Blowing Up

It seems like an eternity since we last received some single-player footage for Modern Warfare 3, but in advance of the November release of the game Activision has gone and released one of those blood pumping trailers – complete with the now infamous bass effect that was prominently featured in the trailers for Inception and Battlefield 3.

Hollywood Legend Sir Ridley Scott Is Contributing Content For Call of Duty Elite

There are some directors in Hollywood that have carte blanche to do whatever the hell they want and the legendary Sir Ridley Scott is one of those people. After giving us seminal sci-fi films such as Alien and Blade Runner along with films such as Legend, Gladiator and Black Hawk Down Sir Ridley can do whatever the hell he wants whenever he wants to.  Right now Sir Ridley is hard at work on the Alien prequel Prometheus but he’s also doing something completely unexpected: he’s contributing content for Call of Duty Elite.

Battlefield 3 vs. Modern Warfare 3 Is On [E3 2011]

The day has come for all first person shooter fans to witness the raise of a competitor for Activision’s Call of Duty franchise.

Kicking off E3 was gameplay from the forthcoming Call of Duty game, Modern Warfare 3. Based in New York we watch a Navy Seal team invade a submarine. Almost mimicking their strategy from last year, CoD showcased new features in their single-player campaign with scuba diving. The only thing missing from this was Scuba Steve, am I right? Stylistically, MW3 was pretty, using dark tones to portray the onslaught in the heart of Americana.

Modern Warfare 3 Trailer Finally Hits, Has Lots Of Explosions And Epic World Ending Action

You may have seen this already by now, but Activision has released the first entirely in-game trailer for Modern Warfare 3.  The premier of the MW3 trailer is of course a big deal considering the popularity and overall stature of the Modern Warfare franchise, but it’s a big deal since we all know about the drama that went down at Infinity Ward last year, which as a whole called into question whether MW3 would be worth checking out.

An update on the somewhat packed development of Modern Warfare 3

The situation concerning Modern Warfare 3 is one that no one has a definitive grasp on.  Since Infinity Ward co-founders Jason West and Vince Zampella were fired from Infinity Ward last year we’ve heard conflicting reports as to the status of Modern Warfare 3.  When West and Zampella left many assumed that would be the end of the series at Infinity Ward and that was later backed by a rumor that said as much.  But then we
