It 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!
