It's a great game in the same way that its predecessors were (and still are), but that's also why it falls short. It's actually the same game as its predecessors. The original Modern Warfare broke ground with its solid physics, rock solid graphics and...

Unlike some reviewers out there, I have not rushed out a review of this game quickly after release. I wanted to give it a chance to impress me or not. In fact it has done neither of those two things. There are things both good and bad about about...

I'll start off by saying that if you liked the direction Infinity Ward went in with 2009's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, don't fear, Modern Warfare 3 will likely provide you with hours of fun. This is because Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 acts like...

Both are gorgeous blockbuster titles—but if you had to pick one, which should it be? Our answers may surprise you. Single Player:When it comes to their storytelling aspirations, the folks at DICE clearly intended to deliver a five course steak dinner...

The Call of Duty franchise has continued to be enormously popular, and for good reason - it has always delivered a good solo experience (albeit a short one), and a very well crafted and thought out multiplayer option. It is a tried and true formula...

It feels kind of redundant to review a game like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 no matter how big this franchise has become. Except for maybe a couple of tweaks, this is essentially the same Call of Duty you played last year, the year before that...

In the Fallout series, they say that war never changes. Perhaps it’s a more appropriate catchcry for the Modern Warfare series. It’s true that number three, the latest in the series, is an uncannily similar package to its predecessor, just as that...

I’ve been playing first person shooters since there were first person shooters. I don’t limit myself to any platform or game genre – I simply enjoy playing them. Over the years, certain franchises have risen to the top and captivated players in a...

It's the game that everyone's talking about – Modern Warfare 3. And this time, the talk on launch day isn't about shafted PC players, or scenes of unnecessary violence, or even Call of Duty's domination as the biggest entertainment launch ever. All of...

We don't want to give away or spoil the plot of MW3 so we'll let you experience the game for yourself. However, the game plays as we would expect a CoD title to play and will be instantly familiar for long time players. The level of scale, detail...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has finally shipped, and millions of eager fans are already playing. By now you already know whether or not you are going to be getting this game, which makes this review rather pointless. What can I possibly say that...
