Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (PS3) Campaign Review

posted in: Reviews 0


The only reason why I wanted to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s campaign was to see how much the mass exodus of Infinity Ward staff affected the game. I wasn’t curious for the story because Modern Warfare 2’s ridiculous series of events already threw out any reason why I should care. So yes, the only reason was to see how the “new“ Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games handled this multimillion dollar franchise.

Checkpoint: Holiday Gaming 2011 Complete?


I just wrapped up Modern Warfare 3’s campaign which leaves me with just two more “Holiday 2011” games to “finish”: Dark Souls and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

I’ve been playing Battlefield 3’s multiplayer, Modern Warfare 3’s Spec Ops and pondering revisiting Uncharted 3 after the supposed aiming fix drops.

So far there hasn’t been an outright dud which I’ve stopped playing like last year’s Fallout: New Vegas. Hopefully Skyrim doesn’t become that, but I have a feeling that won’t be the case.

Checkpoint: Most Anticipated Edition


According to Activision, Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer games and whoever else is responsible for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, “the most anticipated game in history” is coming this Tuesday.

It doesn’t matter if I agree with the latter half of that statement, it’s going to be an interesting release for a number of reasons:

Not the Infinity Ward We Knew

Infinity Ward was decimated by the mass exodus which is why Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software had to step in and lend a hand.

We’re already seeing early comparison screenshots where the Xbox 360 version is edging out Sony’s platform on the technical side of things. I’m not expert, but those PS3 screenshots are reminding me of last year’s low resolution Call of Duty: Black Ops for the PlayStation 3.
