Its that time of year again. Time to find out how much you suck at life from some teenager high on junk food and pop. It is Call of Duty time in the form of Modern Warfare 3. But this time there are two main things that are working against it. COD has competition with the release of Battlefield 3 and the fact that this COD had three different developers working on it. Im going to only be covering the single player part of the game because I’m not very much into multiplayer.
You start right where Modern Warfare 2 ended and of course you are right in the middle of the action from the start. Your mission is to find and stop the Russian super terrorist Vladimir Makarov. That is it. There is not much more you need to know about the story and that is one of the biggest problems with the game. COD has a style that it has followed from the start with over the edge action. This is what made it stand out from the start but now its just over played and over used. You know from the start of every level that shit is going to hit the fan and its aimed right at you. You’re going to kill a lot of people, get yelled at and told what to do, and you can’t save the world without blowing up a few things. COD has become predicable and borderline boring.
What gets me the most is the lack of depth to the game. By that I mean everything that makes you feel like your in the middle of that action. COD does nothing to do that. It just puts you in the middle of a Hollywood action movie and tell you “Do everything this man says!”. To point this out we need to compare it to Battlefield 3.
