Critics Score Modern Warfare 3 Highly, Gamers Unhappy

Modern Warfare 3 LogoIt seems there is a massive disconnect between game critics and gamers on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. If you take a look at MW3’s Metacritic Xbox 360 page, you will see that, as at the time of publication, it has amassed an average score of 90 out of 100 from 44 critics, garnering “universal acclaim”. On the other hand, take a look at the user score and you will see that, based on the ratings of 731 users, Modern Warfare 3 is seen as “generally unfavorable” with a miserable 2.7/10!

With comments like those below, it looks like your everyday gamer is looking for something a little more fresh than what Activision has served up. On the other hand, with critics giving it an average of 90%, the game has gotta be fun right. Which counts more?

If you played one, you’ve played them all. Same thing. Get in line, everyone is buying this game. Its really sad actually. I had no expectations and was disappointed.

How about the singleplayer? Same washed up Michael Bay on steroids you would expect from a Call of Duty game nowadays. Where are the good old days where good gameplay was defined by skill, and not the ridiculous amount of over the top killstreak rewards and perks someone can have? This game, no, this franchise is scarred and beyond repair… A waste of my money.

MW 3? Really this should be called MW 2.5 because I don’t see that many changes at all the only new thing I see here are the new perks thats all. All the maps are boring and nothing special at all, the A.I is still messed up and your main character moves like a sloppy drunk douche!

Exepct the Xbox 360 Cheats review of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to be up shortly.

    Really REALLY disapointed in this game, my fault I know for buying into the hype, but still.
    Multiplayer is awefull no skill needed what so ever. The campain carries off where MW2 left it, which should be good, but sadly not.
    The only saving grace for this game is the Special Ops missions and survival modes, sadly only 2 player would’ve been a hell of alot better if you could have 4 player ala Zombies from COD.
    To say what the critics have said about it, they’d have to pay me much more than they obviously have paid them.Dont think i’ll be buying the next one, which is almost guarented to be a next one.

    2/10 in my book, and thats just for the Spec ops modes.

      So dissapointed with MW3 as are most people I know. MW3 marketing was the only good thing about the game afterall it got millions of copies sold. I’ve always been a big fan of COD but this has turned me back to Black Op’s and BF3. Secondhand copy of MW3 for sale if anyone is interested!

    Thanks for the comments. Have been weighing up purchasing it myself and given that I already have BF3 and am enjoying it a lot, will probably pass on MW3.

    Absolutley horrible game so complicated and no skill the guns seem so unrealistic maps suck they are not open at all this is a game for campers only each map is crowded they wer to worried about tryin to make it realistic and cluttered it up killstreaks are just awful and black ops had it beat 100% to me less complicated better maps that are open way better killstreaks and u didnt have to level up if u suck then u aint gonna get nothin good it would be so much easier to just buy everything come on what we need is a black ops 2

  • Matt A

    This is practically Black ops 2. The graphics, the way the guns look, sound and fire is different. This isn’t anything like Modern Warfare 2. Modern Warfare 2 will always be the best and black ops will always suck and Modern Warfare 3 turn out just the same.

    I don’t know about you guys but i love this game totally the best of the series and think of it this way if the “USER rating is 2.7/10 then why do i constantly see 1 million people playing every new COD game I saw 2.5 million for Black ops…. The people who say “COD sucks” is because they suck at it

    I disagree with most of you, and you are most probably BF3 fanboys, so stop trolling, but either way, I am very impressed with the game, breaking the same record three times in a row is quite an achievement. I know the sales don’t make a better game, but I couldn’t help but notice how CoD sold 9.3million in 24hrs and BF sold around 5million in it’s first week, according to EA and Activision so I think saying CoD is bad is not a very valid opinion. I’m enjoying MW3 so I think, from the videos of BF too, I will give it a pass and save up for GTA V. But if you don’t like CoD, I can respect that and we all have our views and this is just my opinion. Disagree? Feel free, we all have our tastes so if you like BF that is fine by me. P.S Mw3 gets a 9.2/10 from me 😀 ( my opinion)

  • SomeGuy

    BTW, i mean CoD breaking the same record 3 times in a row! BF hasn’t yet!
