    Wow,most people just seem to care about how the game looks and not if it's fun.
    In the last month or so i have re started mw 1 and mw 2 just for fun( only finished mw2 about 2 days ago) so i can see that the graphics haven't moved on but do i care, no(if the graphics looked like the 1st far cry then i would agree with you guy's),because i have had fun playing it,too me that's what matters.Just so you know i only play fps games on PC.

    As Relic already stated this is a performance review - so the graphics are relevant. If they weren't then I don't understand how you could make your second statement about if it looked like Far Cry even if its super fun you'd understand. I've been playing FPS games on the PC since the first Doom (and I used to be a devoted map builder) but these days I think it's just too easy to include great gameplay with great graphics. Sure, focus on the gameplay first... but don't forget to add in my eye candy. I don't want to have to keep playing the original versions of River City Ransom and Mario Bros forever.

    I'm talking about people that keep saying i wont play MW3 because the graphics aren't like BF3 or they haven't moved the game on,as people keep saying.It shows that all they care about is how the game looks and not the game play,which is more important to me.
    If the graphics looked like the 1st far cry then i would also moan.

    I'm not talking about the review,i know it has to do with the graphics.

    Aw man! I got suckered into watching that spam! Deleting!
  5. I'm a pc gamer this year i spend 3000 dollars so my pc could run Battlefield 3 at ultra at a solid 100fps it meant to me in NZ 2 x 580gtxs 1200watt power supplier 12 gig ddr3 1600mhz and one kick **** 27" 3d Monitor....Battlefield 3 is and was worth it.

    Modern Warfare 3 i have seen run on a 8800gts also on a single 580gtx they look the same ,max settingss are a joke couple that with iw.net,no kick vote ,unranked servers,no premium elite and no lessons learnt from modern warfare 2 and this is the biggest fail title for a pc ever.

    There's a reason that battlefield 3 on pc has grossed twice the number of games of modern warfare 3 IW/SH stopped caring about pc so the favour was returned.

    What alot of cod fanboys missed is this week before release BF3 PC Sold 58k mw3 pc Sold 14k.

    For my platform i have seen a drastic change in what Gamers want and expect and to be honest Developers better start listening because the collective we is getting a stronger voice.
  6. If you think MW3 and BF3 look at all similar or the same, you sir, ought to get your contacts prescription checked. I have BF3 on my PC and it looks phenomenal. There really is no comparing the two when you see them side by side in motion.

    Hell, even on the Xbox, the DX9 settings look great, plus it has the HD texture pack, so that right there gives it a graphical boost.

    I have MW3 on my Xbox 360 (my xbox, my brother's copy) and it looks like, well, crap. The best way I can open people's eyes to that fact is to say this:

    Play the first level, the New York level. Then Play Crisis 2, also set in a destroyed New York. The difference will astound you.

    COD is simply out of place in 2011. It's running on an un-updated 4 year old engine.

    What does that "sync every frame" even do because when i tested MF2 on my Dual 5850's i could only run smoothly on high settings and no aa rather than everything on full but it made the video quality much higher, shouldn't we be testing that if they are obviously having no trouble at the moment
  8. Yep Gonna skip this one...
  9. Well i've got a pretty powerfull desktop to run this game but i will like to know, if anyone can help me, if my laptop can run this game even at lowest possible settings (due to the fact i travel alot-every weekend):

    Toshiba Satellite Pro
    Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 @ 2,2Ghz
    Ram 4GB @ 667mhz
    GPU ATI mobility Radeon HD2600 (256mb) (Can Hypermemory help me? :p)

    thanks in advance!

    P.S. I was running MW2 with some settings Medium and some at High with AA and AF turned off also Shadows,smoke edges etc Turned Off.

    This is why PC gamers pirate, why would I spend 60$ on another MW2?

    The story plot is identical, weapons smugglers, nukes blah blah BOOOOORRRRIIINNNGGG.
    The game play, weapons, etc is all the same.
    The graphics are WORSE.

    The only good thing about it is the pointstreaks instead of killstreaks but 1 feature does not make it worth 60$
    The only reason they sell 500million copies is because they squarely aim their sales at console kids that get their parents to buy the game (so they dont need to parent their kids).

    You do realize that MW1, MW2 and MW3 were like a long war series, that's why they are similar.
  12. This piece of garbage should had never been released on PC because is an insult to PC gamers.
  13. dayumn rite. +1
     
  14. You do realize that anything above 60 fps isn't noticeable? You could've spent about 1000 at most to make it run the way it does now :\
