Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Overview, and review. Includes key new features.

Updated on May 30, 2012


So this is my first of many guides that will come out for the Call of Duty game. This will include a brief overview, and talk about the key new features that are on this game that you haven't seen on the other call of duty games. so here we go..

Also.. I am on the Xbox Live network, for those of you who continue to ask, my gamer tag is Agent Johnr. I tend to not add new members from here unless I play with you first, and I only play hardcore domination, or Infected, but either way if you see me on, feel free to send a shout out.

So overall this game reminds me a lot of the other infinity ward call of duty games, and has many good features that put it one step ahead of the games of the past. The first thing ill talk about is the survival mode in spec ops.

Survival mode is Infinity wards modern version of zombies. While the people are not undead, you have to survive against troops of marines, and soldiers, and dogs, and helicopters coming at you in spawns. It is a fun game, that as you level up allows you to unlock kill-streak rewards, better armor, better weapons, and better advantages to fight against the spawns of troops. This game mode is a lot of fun, and with test your skills as you fight your way level through level. As of now you can only play this with 2 people, but a lot of players are asking for more players to be allowed to play together so i would see this coming as an update soon.

Now the multiplayer. The multiplayer on the Call of Duty has changed significantly. First off , there are now 80 levels you must go through before entering prestige mode. They also added two new game types on multiplayer, of which only 1 can be played on hardcore. They added more hardcore game types then most of the COD's (call of duty) usually offer. There is also a lot of rumors, and complaints asking for hardcore headquarters which infinity ward, and treyarch ALWAYS add about a month after the game is released. There are also a lot more guns to choose from, and include a lot of the other infinity ward gun classes. Also the killstreaks have been completely reworked, and now offer a LOT more changes for you to choose from.

Overall there are a lot of new features that i will go over more specifically in the following Hubpages i write after this one.


So the review of this game as a whole... Well i think that when you compare it to the other games, it stands out front and apart from the rest. I think that it is better than the other war games that came out solely off what i think of the other war games out there.

The multiplayer is a lot of fun and the only thing that i dislike about the new Call of duty multiplayer, is that i feel like i am playing MW1, or MW2.. and not MW3. What i mean by this is that, the whole feel of the game, and looks, and spectating is 1 step behind Black ops.. That black ops also incorporated a very descriptive information about the way you play, from where you normally shoot people, to stats on all your guns. But this doesn't mean i don't like the game. I think a lot of things A LOT of things are improved, like people not having to worry about their kill to death ratio because they have finally allow you to reset your statistics after 10th prestige, which is a great way to eliminate a lot of the camping problems people face in the older call of duties.

A couple other smaller bad things that take away from the greater good. is the new semi-automatic grenade launcher. I play hardcore a lot more than i play core, and this weapon really giving those using it an unfair advantage over people using guns. That is really the only problem i have seen with this new game in reference to people using unfair weapons.

As a whole, this game is easily the best shooter game out there. I like it a lot more than i like Battlefield 3. Being Call of Duties main competitor, i think COD will still take the lead, and should win game of the year. I will include reviews, and more specifically a review on the multiplayer modes, best guns, survival mode, and all the features i think will help you improve your overall gaming experience. Please feel free to comment, or ask questions.

      UD, I personally don't mind, but if you are doing any adsense, you will get kicked from there program permanently for copyrighting because my photos are my own personal made work. BUT you should be able to easily create each map easily as I have already done, and then you would not be breaking the rules.. But using my photos directly without proper citings, and giving credit would be copyrighting and against Google's terms of service. But I think also as long as you give credit to me in a caption then it is not violating the terms and you can use them.

      Hey do you mind if I use your map drawings in my blog? I have an mw3 blog to discuss strategies for multiplayer, weapon usage, spec ops etc, and I find your spec ops strategies very amazing. My blog is at
