They took a chance and it paid off
The third Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in the series after the massive success of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, everyone was worried that the third wouldn’t hit the mark. It is actually the 8th in the whole series but third in the Modern War series they have going. The weirdest thing about this game is that in Japan the game was published by Square Enix, imagine if they made it, that would be crazy.
Pick up where you left off
The plot of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 carries on from the second installment of the series and starts straight where the second left off. This does contain huge spoilers for Modern Warfare 2 but if you haven't played it, you should go play it and then come back to finish reading. So, you have been warned, just after Soap and Nikolai killed General Shepherd, the game carries on from there with both Soap and Nikolai injured from the fight. Nikolai being the less wounded one of the two and carries Soap to a safe house in Russia, where they receive help from a friend of Nikolai who shares the same goal; to take down Makarov.
Makarov’s plan in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is to take over Europe through controlling the President by threatening the daughter to take his daughter as a hostage if he doesn’t do what he says. What he wants is the codes for the nukes so they can easily take control of most of Europe. Through the game, you’re trying to stop this from happening and kill Makarov so that peace can be brought between America and Europe with Russia.
The graphics for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are focused around realism. It makes you feel like this could happen, making you feel slightly scared in the game as well as further intriguing compelling you to continue the story. Compared to the other Calls of Duty games like Call of Duty: Black Ops which has a more comic look graphics-wise taking the real feel atmosphere from the game. That’s why Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 does have that great feeling when you accomplish a mission as the experience feels real, making the gameplay amazing.
The Soap at his best
The gameplay is near enough the same as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 with simple FPS mechanics but it’s really the realism and simpleness that makes it stand out from all the others. This is what puts most, if not all, but most of the Call of Duty games at the top because of its simpleness and realism, it doesn’t need much more than that for this game to be the amazing experience it is.
No change, still modern
The game has found a great formula with attention to realism and action-packed gameplay mixed in with a great story altogether to make a game that’s a must-play for any gamer and especially for anyone who enjoys FPS.
