Modern Warfare 3 wasn't exactly 'well-received' by fans, although it was loved by critics. For a lot of gamers, this was the beginning of the end of the 'Good Ol' Days' for Call of Duty. But how has the game aged now? And what can we learn from it with hindsight as our ally? What did this game to right and wrong? Only one way to find out....

This game is definitely divisive. At the time it came out, I really didn't like it but now I have been enjoying the game so much, in fact I tried going back to play Black Ops 4 multiplayer and couldn't finish a match because the maps and gameplay are so boring to me now. Idk man, I'm very mixed on Modern Warfare 3 so don't take it the wrong way if you think I'm too harsh on it. It is a fun game nonetheless. ____TIME STAMPS____ Introduction - 0:00 Development - 4:40 Campaign (Story) - 8:17 Campaign (Gameplay) - 21:53 Multiplayer - 23:58 Customization - 28:59 Killstreaks & Balancing - 31:16 Same Shit, Different Game - 35:18 Map Design - 39:18 Spec Ops (Survival) - 41:24 Spec Ops (Missions) - 46:32 Conclusion - 48:43

Ps3 you can no longer play it. New psn accounts after 2018 can not play on servers. So hope you have an old account that has played it at least once before they were closed or you are screwed. So not many online anymore since no new players can join. If your account is old but you never played this game online before than it wont work either.

The highlight for me with this game was the campaign. Being out of the loop with tall the different CoDgames that were release, i honestly thought CoD 4, MW2 and MW3 were released right after each other. So i felt right at home when i hoped in MW3 after finishing 2 minutes before it. Although i understand the complaints about MW3 being very similar to 2, i would've felt a little uneasy if they changed the style and gameplay of MW3 too much, especially the aesthetics.

Acr was very nice, but the MP7 was actually the overall best weapon in MW3 and it seemed to be the meta. In MW2 ACR seemed to be the best though

Pretty much everyone in the campaign retains their character models, or looks similar to their MW2 COD4 selves. Nikolai for some reason changes his character model face, clothes, and equipment during the helicopter flight. Makarov looks more emo and like he had a face job done. This always bugged me about the campaign.

Tbh, MW3 was overshadowed by the three greater games released before. I feel kinda bad for MW3 because it doesn't get as much love as it deservs. Think of it this way, in WAW you finish the war. In Black Ops you kill all three (not sure about castro) and so on. Modern Warfare 3 was the last game that had a good kind of story (the one they spent time with and didn't rush the ending to the same as the beginning). All in all, people who say that MW3 sucks, should replay it with the thought of no greter games released before it.

People say Modern Warfare 3 was the first bad Call of Duty game, and I understand that, but personally, it holds intense value. The place that I'm at today regarding FPS video games all started with Modern Warfare 3. I have great memories of being introduced to it when I was a young teenager by my father, and we spent time together enjoying what the game had to offer. To both of us, it felt new, even when he was a veteran of the series. It was something we could both enjoy, and would spend Friday nights relaxing together and playing. While yes, you're right, after I played Modern Warfare 2, I can confirm that Modern Warfare 3 is slightly similar, I have to respectfully disagree that the maps, modes, and strike packages made the game... different. Again, this is my opinion, and yours is great too, but I felt like it was different from the experience I got from it, and the memories I share with it. In summary, thank you for reading this comment, I'm sorry if it was a bit of a ramble, but this is why Modern Warfare 3 was on the good side of the fall of Call of Duty era, not the bad in my opinion.

Imagine if Activision took their fucking time. COD:MW3 compared to MW1&2 is terrible. Maybe they could've upgraded the fucking graphics, have a wait so that people are excited to see where the story goes, or hint at it and make people rumour about. Fuck MW3.
