From the Manufacturer
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is First-person Shooter rooted in a fictional, but ultra realistic near-future conflict of mostly American forces with those of the Russian Federation around the globe. The third installment in the Modern Warfare branch of the Call of Duty franchise, Modern Warfare 3 features a heavy focus on multiplayer gameplay which includes innovative new functionality that encourages multiple gameplay combat strategies, a new 2-player co-op option, new play modes, weapons and more. The game also includes a gripping single player campaign that picks up where Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 left off, and game integration with the Call of Duty: Elite online service.
Do What is Necessary in the Face of Invasion
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is a direct sequel to the previous game in the series, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. In the game's single player campaign Russian Ultranationalist Vladimir Makarov continues his manipulation of Russian Federation forces in their invasion of the United States and Europe. In their way stands characters like Task Force 141 Captain John "Soap" MacTavish, former SAS Captain John Price as well as new playable characters from Delta Force and the British SAS. Engage enemy forces in New York, Paris, Berlin and other attack sites across the globe. The world stands on the brink, and Makarov is intent on bringing civilization to its knees. In this darkest hour, are you willing to do what is necessary.
Multiplayer That is Bigger and Better Than Ever
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 delivers a multiplayer experience that continues to raise the bar by focusing on fast-paced, gun-on-gun combat, along with innovative features that support and enhance a large variety of play-styles. Now, you can truly define your approach with a toolkit more expansive than any previous title.
Pointstreaks and Strike Packages
Killstreaks, benefits and abilities awarded for stringing together multiple kills, have been transformed into Pointstreaks, creating a system that rewards players both for landing kills and completing objectives. These rewards have been broken up into three different categories, known as Strike Packages:
- Assault - Pointstreaks within this package chain together and deal direct damage. It includes classics like the Predator Missile and Attack Helicopter. Your streak resets on death.
- Support - Pointstreaks within this package do not chain, focusing instead on surveillance and disruption. Your streak does not reset on death meaning they will respawn with you.
- Specialist - Pointstreaks within this package are designed for advanced players. Rewards come in the form of additional perks for optimal performance. These perks last until death.
Just like your player, weapons now rank up, unlocking additional attachments, reticules, camos and the new proficiency category. Weapon Proficiencies not only allow you to get better with weapons, they also allow you customize your weapons with helpful attributes such as "Kick" for reduced recoil, "Impact" for deeper penetration through hard surfaces and much more. Many proficiencies are specific to their weapons class. And all are geared towards enhancing a certain play style and can allow for efficient use of your favorite weapons in maps and game modes in which they might not otherwise be the best choice.
Modes and Match Customization
Along with the return of the fan favorites Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 introduces several new game modes. Collect dog tags from killed players, including those on your squad while you prevent the opposing squad from taking yours in Kill Confirmed mode. In Team Defender mode, grab the flag and protect the flag carrier for as long as you can to increase your team's score. In addition players will enjoy user generated match mode functionality which allows you to configure any mode how you want it and then share these over the Call of Duty: Elite online service.
2-player Co-op Special Ops Survival Mode
Special Ops cooperative action returns with a bevy of additions, including 16 new objective-based missions and the all-new Survival Mode. Team up online, locally, or play solo and face endless waves of attacking enemies throughout every multiplayer map. Purchase and customize your weapons, air support, equipment and abilities to stand up against increasingly difficult forces and land a spot on the leaderboards. Earn experience and rank up with the newly implemented progression system. The higher the rank, the more weapons, air support, and gear armories you will have available to customize so you can change your tactics on the fly. In addition to the action packed battle for freedom, the cooperative Survival Mode also serves as an effective training tool for competitive multiplayer action.

(-1 Star) Really loved MW2 and the varied environments you fought through. MW3 seems to be much shorter campaign and it feels like you spend half the time in dark (night + going through dark buildings). MW2 also seemed to run in higher resolution (almost HD) but MW3 does not even come close to that. For $13, it's good for the value.
Cons: The game on the disk is out of date. Immediately after activation of product key the game will start downloading from steam, as it says "update required". File is 14 gb and takes a whole day to download and install. Not that much of a big deal, but the DVD's should come with the updated versions of the game.
Other Thoughts: Great game. I recommend it. Its great for people who don't have "top of the line" computers. These are my specs and game runs just fine.

NVIDIA Geforce Experience sets this game to optimal settings for best gameplay. Again awesome game. I recommend it.
MW3 is exactly what you would expect from a "Call of Duty" game: a lot of mindless running and gunning. There's nothing wrong with that if you enjoy it, which I do. There's also a lot of guns to choose from, it's fun to try them all out with different perks and killstreak combinations, and the online maps are fun to play on. But the main reason I bought this game was because I thought that the online community was active and there was plenty of servers to play on.
Boy, was I wrong.
There's less than 2000 people online at any given time. You might be thinking, "2000 people is still a lot of people, what is this guy complaining about?" The problem here is that the vast majority (1600+ people on average) are playing in the "Team Deathmatch" game mode. This means that the ONLY game mode you will be playing online is team deathmatch. It's impossible to find a public game of Search and Destroy and Domination because there are literally only a handful of people in these game modes. I can't even manage to get connected to another game mode without waiting 10 minutes before quitting in frustration. This severely cripples the online aspect of this game.
Another problem with the lack of an online community is that you continually run into the same people over and over. Since I am forced to play only TDM, I play with the same rotating group of about 50 people. I can tell right from the start of the game which team will win based on my past experiences with these people. This is very boring and too predictable.
There's also a lot of lag on this game. I can't connect to a lobby with less than 100 ping on average and I know my connection isn't the problem. I regularly play CoD: World at War, Black Ops 2, CS:GO, and BF2 with pings anywhere from 25-60. I guess that's what you get for forcing people into lobbies.
-You're forced into only playing team deathmatch online
-Not many people online
Final note: What a waste of $20. I'd recommend that you save your money and buy another FPS like CS:GO or any Battlefield.
UPDATE: I've decided to give a more in depth review:
Story: Same as always, a cut rate story that doesn't leave you feeling like you've accomplished anything... 6/10
Graphics: Slightly better than black ops. SLIGHTLY. Below other games available though. 6/10
Sound:Sound is pretty accurate in this game. 9/10
Gameplay: Like mentioned before, EXACT SAME as MW2. I'm not going to rate it because the simplicity is fun, but the neglected difference from the other games makes it very agitating...
Overall: Due to there being literally nothing new in the game aside from a story, I'll give this a 6/10, or slightly above average (with a 5 being average)
That's the issue I have found. The online community is dwindling. Games are horribly small. Many versions of online play, like those on the advanced playlist, are not even available. That makes MW3 a pretty boring game.
I think PC is NOT the way to go on this. Buy the console version. I hear there are a lot more people playing on XBOX 360.
Now I kind of feel cheated. I bought the game at a nice low price, but how long will I be able to play it? And--unlike World at War--there is no awesome Zombies mode to play offline to make my purchase worth it. :(
Not recommended, unless you REALLY love COD.
