Modern Warfare 2’s Spec Ops mode was the highlight of the package and it returns in Modern Warfare 3 with a survival mode. Excited? Sure, but that’s not the most intriguing part.
The last few seconds showed a glimpse of a Medal of Honor style points streak system where other actions contribute to an overall tally which then unlocks “killstreak/points” streak rewards like UAV etc. I liked that system in Medal of Honor and it makes a whole lot more sense to incorporate that system than a purely kill based one.
The kills based system hamper the enjoyment of team objective games because there was little personal gain involved. Now team actions feed into streak rewards and hopefully it’ll help with the team play aspect.
