Call of Duty MW3 initial user reviews!

Posted by on November 11, 2011 | No comments

Well the released happened…  Thousands lined up at individual stores for what Im reading was the biggest game launch ever.   People have been playing it non stop try to rank up and test out all the guns, perks, and attachments.  From the people I have talked to they believe Modern Warefare 3 to be a mesh of all best things from past Call of Duty games.  All the people surround me seem to like the game.   After looking at reviews online and also twitter posts, I have ran into a barrage of players with bad reviews..  Metacritic has 1 out of every 3 users giving it a good review.

Other reviews:

“One startlingly huge, polished, and downright entertaining shooter experience. Sure, we can come up with a list of things we’d love to see from the series – whether it’s a revamped campaign approach or a revitalized game engine and aesthetic – but when everything here is this well-executed and offers so many enduring thrills, it’s hard to knock it too much. MW3 absolutely delivers” .. Official Xbox Magazine

“Modern Warfare 3 doesn’t do anything new, but it also doesn’t do anything wrong. For better or worse, this is a slick and well-metered trio of modes that make an entertaining package, but Sledgehammer Games and Infinity Ward are simply looking to augment previous games rather than expand the series into pastures new.” .. Videogamer

“This is an exciting and rewarding game, but the series’ signature thrills have lost some of their luster. Modern Warfare 3 iterates rather than innovates, so the fun you have is familiar. Fortunately, it’s also utterly engrossing and immensely satisfying, giving fans another reason to rejoice in this busy shooter season.”  .. Gamespot

We’ll have to wait if the overall amount of players prefer the game or would rather of seen a larger overhaul.

Released today on the Call of Duty MW3 forum was an announcement of the ability to earn 1 prestige token in Modern Warfare 3 by prestiging 1 time in a past version of Call of Duty (WAW excluded).   They also noted that Wii and PC versions of the game will not have this availability.   Prestige Tokens can be used for a variety of things within MW3 for instance the ability to get a new class and the ability to take a custom class to the next prestige.

Along with this news they have announced that this weekend will be a double points weekend.  This will help you get the points necessary to prestige.
