There has been a lot of buzz in the gaming community about Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 3. It made $1 billion faster than the movie Avatar, in just 16 weeks! It’s also been widely criticized as well. (Is it better than Battlefield 3, which came out around the same time?)
As I’ve watched the boyfriend play (Xbox) for a few hours now, and even played a bit myself, I think it’s a pretty good game. It seems like it’s a decent challenge for him, and the graphics are good. It doesn’t hurt my eyes to watch for a few hours, so that’s a plus 🙂 He enjoyed the challenge and gameplay, even though it was similar to the previous version.
No, this game is not brand new (I remember a lot of the names from the last Modern Warfare game, Black Ops). No, the details aren’t 100% accurate (I’m pretty sure they would never refer to the Vice President as the Vice President, for example). Maybe it should have been marketed differently since it was billed to be so huge, but ultimately, I’m not sure what people were expecting. It’s a solid game in my eyes.
After playing both, I found out that boyfriend prefers MW3 to Battlefield 3. He says it’s because he doesn’t play online… whatever that means 🙂
Have any thoughts about MW3? Is it better or worse than Battlefield 3?
