It's getting to the point where I think they're gonna start running out of fresh content.

MW2 wasn't that good, so I'm not really expeceting this to be any better. Which is why I won't be purchasing it  :siderofl:

Only reason I really want the game is for the storyline...maybe I'll rent it


Thank you Tanger!

Actually super pumped for this. Also found out that JB HiFi are doing a deal where you can trade in one game for it as long as it is on their list.  One of the games included is NBA 2K12 (which I recently acquired for trading in CoD: WaW, Halo 3: ODST and NBA 2K11) which I will be trading. I didn't like 2K12 as much as 2K11, and I still have 2K10, so I figured I would trade it for MW3.

Myself and about 4 other friends are going to commit to the 8am release. Earliest I've ever been up to buy a game lol.

I'm looking forward to the release a LOT.

The game should be as fun or funner than MW2, which is perfectly fine with me :D


BF3 is lots of fun, but there are times when I don't want to rely on my teammates so much, and an arcadeish style shooter like CoD is great for that

I'm definitely gonna rent it more than once. That is, after I'm bored with BF3 (which will be a while!)

Okay, so I've been playing MW3 multiplayer... for..... uhm....     6, 7 hours straight.

And I'm loving every minute of it!

The graphics are slightly better than MW2, but where MW3 REALLY shines is in the new weapons, the strike packages, and the balance of all of the weapons against each other. (At least so far)

Weapons: Shotguns are a primary class again. WOOOOOOOT. The Spas-12 is still awesome as a shotgun with a medium sized range when ADS, however it's not completely OP as if you miss, or they are farther away than a few feet it will most likely take 2 shots to kill someone, 3 if they are somewhere between mid and far away.
The assault weapons are pretty good, though to be honest I've mostly been playing with my shotties. (Those of you who played when we played CoD4 a lot know my favorite class :P)


Strike Packages: This is a great addition to the game imo. You have Assault, Support and Specialist.

Assault is what everyone's used to, blah blah blah. Most of the kill streaks are pretty great at getting kills, but they reset when you die.
Specialist is pretty neat too, lets you unlock more perks as you get kills, different perks unlock at different killstreaks, even if they are in the same category. (You can choose 3)
Support is one of the coolest ones I've seen. It's amazing for a rusher like me, as it doesn't reset upon death, and theres a few kill streaks that can net you some kills if used right.
One of the funnest was the Boobytrapped Care Package, I've gotten up to 4 kills with one, with some clever manipulaton. (Pretending to grab it but getting killed while getting it, which is great cause the streak doesn't reset upon dead) Can also use a stealth bomber, and can also use a Osprey supported care package kill streak.


Also, so far I've yet to find an over powered gun. The shotguns are pretty good, but on an open map you'll get ahnniliated if they catch you in the open, and on close maps the range is short enough that it's usually a 2 shot kill for most of them. The snipers can quickscope still, though the power is down low enough that you have to get a solid body shot to 1 shot someone. The assault and SMGs are nice, UMP is still pretty good. They have nice power and clip size.


Really, I'm enjoying the multiplayer to pieces. It's definitely the second best multiplayer CoD game, if not better than CoD4, but I'm holding my breath to see what they higher level weapons are like.




Imo you should buy it if you like fast paced action multiplayer with balanced guns and kill streaks. But hey, that's just my opinion :P

Must say it is quite awesome. Currently level 55 in multiplayer. I've also done a bit of campaign and spec ops.

Quickscoping is back!

I'm going to wait a long time to get this.  I played it for upwards of an hour on my friend's system and hated it.  From what I've heard, the UI stinks for PC and this is a game geared for consoles.  Instead I'm buying (I know I'm really late to the party) BF:BC2 for PC because it's just 20 bucks for PC and everyone I've talked to loves it more than COD.

At least we've still got COD4 which can never be beat :D 

 Go ahead IW... Try...

Ive heard many bad things about MW3. On meta critic users are really giving it a beating, It has an average of about 2/10 over 400 odd ratings. All complaints are a 3 1/2 hour long single player mode, and a multiplayer mode that feels the same as MW2. People have been saying that the new maps are terrible, and the "COD elite" service is basically highway robbery for something that many other games give for free. there are error messages that come up on the PC that say things like MW2 has stopped working, Showing that it is what many belive it to be, a reskin of MW2. the frame rate is locked as well as the FOV as well. If Sledgehammer/infinity ward keep doing this to gamers then the community will hopefull turn thier back on them and force them to make a great game again like Cod4. Its sad to see a once great gaming franchsice turned into a cash cow and bieng sold by name alone. I have to say I dont think this is worth owing if you have Cod4 or Mw2. Im not a Battlefield fan by any strech of the imagination, Ive never owned a BF game, But from everything ive seen and heard, if your looking for a new shooter than it is probably the one to pick up

To be honest I don't know where all of these negative reviews are coming from. The campaign was long enough and quite epic, capping off the modern warfare series quite nicely. Currently level 72 in multiplayer and looking to prestige soon (I've played way too much of this game since Tuesday :P).

I think it's great. You'll notice that on that metacritic site the actual critics gave a rating in the high eighties.

It's not very different. It's very fun to play. Wasn't expecting anything else. I'm glad I didn't buy it, though. It's too expensive for not very much extra than what MW2 offered and delivered, not that the price stopped thousands of others :P They sure know how to make money, though, I'll give them that.

Its honestly the best of the cod series so far. Its taken the best parts of cod4, mw2 and blops and rolled into one, very polished package.

I'm also level 74 and will be prestiging. As to how far im not sure, the 2nd, 4th, 6th and 7th prestige badges are the best imo, 7th is a long way away though :\

Prestiged yesterday.

I plan to get to tenth this time, I haven't yet in any COD but I feel MW3 deserves to be played that much. Still having heaps of fun.
