The eighth Call of Duty game overall is the sequel to Modern Warfare 2 and is set in an alternate reality of the modern era. In the campaign mode, the game continues the Modern Warfare storyline about an American spec ops squad Task Force 141 fighting Russian nationalists.
The player will control different characters on various military missions across the world. The protagonists from the previous part, Soap MacTavish and John Price, appear in certain missions but are sidelined by several new playable characters, most prominently, the Russian former Spetsnaz operative Yuri. Terrorist leader Vladimir Makarov, the villain of Modern Warfare 2, returns as well, and is trying to provoke the start of World War III. The player’s missions this time will be centered around protecting the West against Makarov’s attacks.
The game introduces a new Survival mode, in which the player repeals wave after wave of eternally respawning opponents. This mode allows for multiplayer co-op for two players. The traditional multiplayer mode was revised as well, adding a new reward mechanic, Pointstreaks, in which the player can choose between three sets of rules, called “strike packages”, to count his or her points.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 reviews and comments

MW3-The Hate love Foreword Call of Duty 8: Modern Warfare 3 was my first Call of Duty and to be honest I can't understand the Hate towards this game to This Day. Story The Campaign is the grand Finale of the Modern Warfare Series and remains true to its predecessors: Ballers, Action, Explosions and a questionable Scene that doesn't come to MW2 "s airport mission. In General, MW3 clarifies some Of the Previous questions and concludes the Storyline precisely accordingly. Multiplayer All that MW2 did two Years earlier also implements MW3 in Multiplayer. The only notable Additions are the support and Special launch Rewards that loosen Up the multiplayer a bit. The Nuke has become a MOAB that can now be played differently and the well-known Quad MOAB Gameplays as well as the so-called BBahrain gameplays have found their Place here as well. Through the 1 vs 1, 2 vs 2 and 3 vs 3 Maps, fresh Winds came into MW3 and this was also noticed when the Hackers opened their well-known hacker lobbies there. Conclusion MW3 was not the best Call of Duty From the House Sledgehammer Games, but also not the worst. The Support Killstreaks created the so-called Pointstreaks, which could be seen in every CoD from Black Ops II. Even though the Multiplayer was not very innovative, I had a lot of Fun with this Game, which was due, among other things, to the Story and the extraordinarily good coop mode. Rating Singleplayer: 8 out of 10 Multiplayer: 7.5 out of 10 Coop Mod: 8.5 out of 10 Total: 8 out of 10 possible points. "It doesn't take the most powerful nations on Earth to create the next global conflict-just the will of a single man." -Makarov

So I put it down very late because of the very bad Reviews of many Players and have to say, too bad that I didn't buy it sooner. The Game rocks and is animal fun. Everything that has annoyed in MW2, the Developers have improved or changed. The Killstreaks no longer dominate the whole Game and the whole Tubes are very weak. The Maps need to be used. In the Beginning, I didn't come to terms with it, or hate it a bit. Since I am an old COD 4/MW1 Fan, I lacked maps such as Strike, Overgrown Etc., stop in few Maps that are Clear. Well, though, I got used to it and I think it's very good. Since it's a very fast Game, the slightly smaller-pricked Maps may be better, especially for Rushers. Well. So as far as the Cheaters are concerned, yes they are there, no Question about it. There are some of these Idiots who destroy whole Games, especially at Rush Hour. But as long as only everyone else kills (which is also shit, of course). There are, Thank God, no Cheaters that level up the whole Lobby, just as it was in MW2. There it was, you came into a Lobby and suddenly everything was unlocked. That is not the case here. But You can also gamble hours without a Cheater. But it has to be said that as soon as good Players dominate a Game, all moan and shout "hacker, cheater, noob ... I, etc. " The moaning is stark and very exaggerated. You can read in the Game chat Almost Nur..ŵMP7 Noob, ACR Noob, STRIKER Noob, FMG90 Akimbo Noob, MSR Noob, CHEATER Noob ... Blah blah blah "I mean to say it's not quite sooooo Cheater contaminated as always everyone says. There are just a lot of Minors who can't lose and then just make the Game bad just because they don't have a Skill. So my Recommendation ... Buy for small Money and have Fun. You can just get nix wrong with that. If You encounter a few Cheaters, just leave Lobby and next search, or change game Modes.
