De pers lijkt van Modern Warfare 3 te houden, maar gamers zijn er niet zo blij mee. Dit toont zich wel op de website Metacritic, waar de game op het moment van schrijven een gemiddelde kent van 2.1. De user reviews zijn over het algemeen zeer negatief en mensen voelen zich bedonderd omdat de game te weinig vernieuwing kent. “Het spel is een map pack die je stats van Modern Warfare 2 reset,” roept bijvoorbeeld een gebruiker.

Ook in onze review waren we kritisch over het feit dat Modern Warfare 3 niet echt vernieuwd. Vele blogs praten ook al over een expansion pack van 60 dollar. We hebben enkele user reviews van de game hieronder neergezet, deze zijn afkomstig van Metacritic. De game krijgt van pers reviews op Metacritic overigens een 8.8 gemiddelde voor de PS3.

Gebruiker noemt MW3 ‘pathetic’

Pathetic. Just pathetic. There was alot of hype building up to this game, being the proceedor of both Modern Warfare’s. Played the first few missions of the campaign. The graphics disappointed me, and it was just the same as any other Call of Duty campaign. The series is getting very old now. The multiplayer is full of boosters, glitchers and abusive swearing kids. Connection problems and host migrations are a great feature to all Call Of Duty games and Modern Warfare 3 is no exception! I am 100% sure this game will end up like Modern Warfare 2 did. A glitchfest of hackers and boosting 10 year olds. Everyone would be much beter suited to a real game. Perhaps Battlefield 3 anyone??

Modern Warfare 3 voelt nu al oud

modern warfare 3 just feels old already. i was very hyped for this game i found a way to get it early unfortunately my pain staking efforts were in vain when i played it i really wish am not trying to sound like a troll. but the game is boring now and especially in multi player where they have not fixed anything from mw 2 i suggest you don’t buy this game

De game is geen map pack

From a Battlefield 3 Fan Perspective this game is very good, it’s not a DLC of MW2 the MP has improved over with the spec ops giving the shine it is just as good as zombies and the unlocks will keep you going on for a while and Prestige and 80 levels will definitely be alot of time too., COD Elite is just as good as Battlelog everything is good (MP is a dead heat) and Campaign is a bit cliche but slightly better than BF3s I will see you guys on the BATTLEFIELD and the MODERN WARFARE, Peace out Fans and trolls 😛 Collapse

Infinity Ward kreeg het voordeel van de twijfel, maar nu niet meer

I was willing to give IW the benefit of the doubt in their claims that the game was vastly improved, and the new features breathed new life into the game.. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case. I can’t help but feel like the game I’m playing would be better labeled an expansion pack for MW2, or just MW2.5 at best. IW seems to content now to rehash the same thing year after year without really aiming to do anything new. Such a shame to see this happen to a once great series. Collapse
