Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Also available for: Xbox360

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?<P>Co-developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games, Modern Warfare 3 delivers a full assault on gamers' senses, including an intense single-player campaign that picks up immediately following the events of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and escalates into World War 3, as well as groundbreaking upgrades to the beloved Special Ops like the all-new Survival Mode. Special Ops serves as the perfect springboard to Modern Warfare 3's re-imagined multiplayer, featuring the series' trademark visceral gun-on-gun combat, a revamped pointstreak system with the introduction of "Strike Packages," devastating new modes like "Kill Confirmed" and other gameplay enhancements, new features and a bevy of new weapons, equipment, and perks.

    Graphics

    Sure, the engine is dated, but the work that&#8217;s been done still creates scenes that are impressive to watch. And it always runs at 60 frames per second.

    Sound

    A lot has actually been done with the guns to make them sound like they have more weight. The voice acting is also well done, though I could stand for a bit less rockin&#8217; guitars.

    Appeal

    This is the Call of Duty players will be playing online for hours and hours thanks to its engrossing multiplayer experience. That is, until the next one comes out&#8230;

    Play

    The campaign story has its failings, but fantastic set pieces nonetheless. The multiplayer is the best it&#8217;s ever been, and Spec Ops is also great fun.

    Presentation

    Modern Warfare 3&#8217;s menus are laid out clearly and work well. The Elite functionality also adds a lot to competitive multiplayer players.
