Modern Warfare 3

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare is back, and it did not disappoint. Released November 8, 2011, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is an action first-person shooter. It is a direct sequel Modern Warfare 2, and is the third installment of the Modern Warfare series. MW3 picks up where MW2 left off, where the Russian Federation continues its invasion on the USA. This invasion has spread to European countries, such as England, France, and Germany. Multiplayer and two-player co-op are back, and much deeper than it was in previous Modern Warfare games. MW3 also brings all new kill streak categories, customizable strike packages, and full social network integration.

Multiplayer is a major part of the Modern Warfare series, and is a major reason why gamers continue to play. The heart of multiplayer is still here, and then some. All the modes you are familiar with have also returned. A few changes include all new killstreak categories, ranking, and unlocks system.

Like I said above, the entire killstreak system has been changed up. Don't worry, it has changed, but for the good. This system is no longer called killstreaks; they are now called pointstreaks. Unlike previous Modern Warfare games, kills are no longer the only way to increase the players point streak. Pointstreaks can also be increased by completing the many objectives this game has to offer. Pointstreak rewards are grouped together in three separate categories: support, assault, and specialist. If you are familiar with past COD games, then you will be familiar with how the assault package works. Specialist is worth mentioning, as it is completely new to the Modern Warfare series. After killing two enemies consecutively, the player is rewarded with the perk of their choosing. After eight kills, the player receives every perk in the game. This stat is reset once the player is killed.

Kill confirmed and team defender are two new game modes worth mentioning as well. Kill confirmed requires the player to kill enemies, and collect their dog tag. You have to be quick though. If the opposing team can snatch the dog tag before you do, you are denied the kill. You can of course do the same thing if one of your teammates is killed. Another new mode is team defender. This mode involves collecting flags from the first person who is killed. The team who captures the flag gains twice as many points as the opposing team. The team who fails to get the flag gets the default amount per kill.

If you have played any of the Call Of Duty games over the years, then you know the kind of action campaign mode brings. The start of campaign mode is set in Manhattan, where you are invaded by the Russian Federation. This mode has great graphics, visuals, and sound. With that being said, this mode was a bit of a let down for me. The objectives are easy and basic, and this mode has no length.  Anyone familiar with the COD series could easily finish this mode in a few days. None the less, the game is a blast to play. In my opinion, multiplayer is where this game shines.
