Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 - My Thoughts
So today I completed Modern Warfare 3. If you don’t know, I’ve actually been doing a Let’s Play series on it, which you can check out here (do be sure to comment, like and subscribe!)
So, having completed it, I have to say, I felt very… erm… ‘meh’, at the end of it. The final scene was especially ‘meh’-ish considering how cinematic, dramatic and generally awesome the ending scenes of previous Call of Duty games were (*cough* MW2 ending *cough*).
So, the plot. Well, it was good… I guess. I liked the continuity from the previous games, and the fact that it contained many flashbacks and even some flash forwards towards the end of the game was a nice touch. Without giving too much away, let’s just say characters you’ve come to know and love fall. Besides the continuity, I found it to be a very meh storyline, featuring many traits found in war movies and other games in the genre. The sheer scale of what was meant to be WW3 just isn’t conveyed well enough besides through the mediocre COD ‘Mission Briefing’ cutscenes scattered throughout the game.
The game it self is typical COD. The gameplay, graphics, objectives, everything. If you liked the campaigns of previous COD titles, then you’ll like this one. Now I love COD campaigns as much as the next guy but again, all of the afore mentioned things were taken from previous games and really lacked anything new, leaving me feeling, once again meh-ish.
Overall, if you like COD, you’ve probably already got this game. Even if you don’t, buy the game, finish the campaign in the 5-6 hours it will take you, then hop on to the multiplayer, because that is where the true awesomeness of COD, really is.
