The biggest piece of entertainment in history is now available in stores around the world, and the reviews are declaring it the best in franchise history. Even Edge, a publication that rarely hand out high scores, gave the game a 9, calling it “one hell of a package”.
Modern Warfare 3 has landed. Catch all the latest reviews below the break.
Edge puts it best:
“Itâ€™s funny to think that when Infinity Ward made Modern Warfare it didnâ€™t have a mo-cap studio, relying instead on the loan of another companyâ€™s setup. Four years on and thatâ€™s certainly changed, but the animation of those feet lingers: a piece of heritage, both in the game and for the game. And Infinity Ward may have changed too, but its standards havenâ€™t, delivering a consistent 60fps, zero controller latency, explosive set-pieces, robust multiplayer and military characters you actually give a damn about. Wherever Call Of Duty goes from here, Infinity Wardâ€™s Modern Warfare trilogy stands as this generationâ€™s defining FPS series â€“ and Modern Warfare 3 is an emphatic, feature-packed and sometimes stunning final act.”
“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 treads familiar ground and focuses on tweaking rather than reinventing, and that’s just fine. While there are no major revelations or surprises, this is still a gorgeously produced package that gives military shooter fans exactly what they want. There’s a reason why Call of Duty is the most powerful videogame franchise of the modern era, and Modern Warfare 3 serves as a reminder — it’s just that damn good at what it does.
Whether you like what it does is a matter of personal taste, but the skill and experience brought to the table is hard to refute. Modern Warfare 3 gets it done, and it gets it done damn well.”
