Infinity Ward Recycle Buildings In MW3 Straight From CoD 4

Oh no, stop the presses.

I hate the newer CoD games and even I can admit that this isn't a big deal. Devs do it all the time (see F3 and New Vegas).

Anyway, selfish as it may sound, it's actually nice to hear that people are disappointed with the game, and the Steam stats for it are surprisingly low at the moment (MP at #3 with 31k online; SP at #6 with 27k). The CoD games up to and including 4 were great, but it's about time the series starts losing some of it's grip on the games industry.

I give CoD 2 more games after MW3 before it loses relevance.

A lot of game developers do it, but usually not with games that spaced out. Fallout 3 launched in 2008, New Vegas launched in 2010. Not to mention that New Vegas is not a direct sequel to Fallout 3. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was released in 2007 and now Modern Warfare 3 is a direct sequel released in 2011. That's about 4 years apart.

I'm not hating on the Call of Duty franchise I own all the games in the series. However the franchise has been using the same engine and set pieces for a little bit too long. The competition is starting to really show how out dated the games feel/look.

Oh, if that was your point, I agree completely. The tech is really showing it's age. Your original post just looked like a weak trolling attempt.

It's the same shit I mean the exact same shit, the graphics, the soldier models, the guns, perks, killstreaks/deathstreaks with a few additions, they've just copied alot of the buildings from mw2 and dumped them in, even the font is the same.

Good thing I only rented it from blockbuster, I get a kick out of it just jump in and shoot a few guys but no way am I paying full price for what is little more than a map pack. I can see the appeal I mean if it aint broke don't fix it being the mentality for sure but not for me, oh well.

I think the fact that MW2 looks identical to MW3 is causing a lot of people to forget about the actual changes to gameplay that have been made.

My personal favorite change is definitely the addition of strike packages. I'm not very good at the game and can never build up a streak of kills, but I can still manage to get a fair number of kills per game. The support package made the game much more appealing for me when compared to MW2. However, choosing a top-tier pointstreak makes it so that you unlock streaks less often, so it adds a new dynamic to the game.

Also, Kill Confirmed is a great playlist, one which I'll definitely be playing most of the time. So far I haven't played anything but that.

Finished the campaign on Veteran in 7 hours, 37 seconds. With 14 intel items. I'll go get the rest later. I'm having a lot of fun with multiplayer. The changes aren't huge, but they're enough that the whole thing feels very fresh. I especially love these maps. It's about time they changed that exahusting 3-path formula, where everybody just bunched up in one spot. SCAR-L suppressor and hearbeat sensor. Throwing knife, flash bangs, and quick draw, blind eye, and I cannot recal the third perk. Doing quite well in Kill Confirmed.

MEh, i got tgtough the csmpaign in 4 hours 39 minutes, about as long as i expected, a decent campaign, the twist was nice, the SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER part where soap died i was absolutely gutted, id spent the last 4 years growing attached to him END SPOILER and the ending was satisfying.

Spec Ops is much improved and a fair amount of fun.

Multiplayer is stale, and my time with its Multiplayer died with Black Ops.

Worth a rent, or even a buy if you really enjoy the Multiplayer. Still i can't bring myself to give this anymore than a 6 out of 10.

"Players also criticized the apparent LACK OF SKILL required to succeed in the multiplayer mode, pointing to the fact that the series has now instead shifted to focusing on other things, such as the number of kill streak rewards and perks that a player can amass."

After reading this, I'm having second thoughts. I was planning on it, but now? Eh, maybe.

Me and my friends still win most of the time, as we used to. The support killstreaks aren't that powerful, the most deadly is ~12 kills for a Stealth Bomber. The extra perks aren't overpowered or anything, either. It takes 8 kills without killstreaks to get all perks and until then, the extra perks aren't really all that helpful.

Considering the sheer idiocy of the users when talking about certain games in the past, I don't see why they should be bothered about Metacritic ratings.

I played through the first hour or so on the campaign, and I had a blast. Literally, like there's explosions friggin' everywhere. This sums it up quite nicely. I'm not complaining.

I seriously haven't played a second of it. I should just finish mw2's first today then play mw3 tommorow.

I don't really care about the story it's just that i dont like playing it backwards (mw3, mw2, mw etc)

"I don't usually do this but, if u like MW3 go 2 Metacritic.com & help our user score," writes Schofield. "It's suspiciously low. Be honest but help if u agree."

I'll be honest, on a scale of one to ten, your game deserves no more than six or seven, going strictly off multiplayer changes alone. It uses the same mechanics, tweaks them slightly, and delivers a performance that is all too familiar. While not entirely bad, I just got an awful feeling of deja vu while playing.

And the fact you have to unlock the riot shield? Blasphemy. Although the melee speed upgrade is really nice, the auto aim usually fucks me over. But I can still do good with it.

What the fuck is this shit? Lack of skill is a poor indicator of a games final product. Sure it's more of the same but they did tweak some things for the better. The separation of point streaks through Assault, Support, and Specialist was something I wanted in MW3, so people can fulfill a more specialized role. There's no real game ruining point streak that I encountered early on that was gamebreaking.

Now before I get too deep into this I... wait a minute.

Assault... Support... Specialist... A.S.S.

THE POINT STREAK SYSTEM IS ASS!

They have never once been accurate. Literally any other gaming site works better for user scores.

then why is the mw dev community focusing solely on metacritic?

why is metacritic so acclaimed?

although i do agree to some extent

Because it's so damn low, that's why. All their other user scores are much higher.

If it didn't matter, or had no real effect, then why would they care?

"possess" who the fuck uses "possess" in their message? How foreign to English can you get?

Anyways, MW3, I'll wait for ya. I mean, I still have an ass load of leveling to do on Black Ops and Skyrim is gonna drain my wallet and then I'll be playing that, I mean, at best, I'm seeing post Christmas, maybe a bit after that. But I'll still get you, I mean, sure, it's nothing I haven't seen. But Survival is Like Spec Ops and Zombies combined, not a bad duo. And Multiplayer is probably the same but the maps are probably good, and I know I'll have to deal with a shit ton of UMP try-hards and get adjusted to which weapon everyone is using but hey, it's nothing I haven't had to deal with before. Because in the end, it's usually a ton of fun, sometimes even on bad days. So I'll wait for ya baby, just wait until your price drops by couple bucks.

I've decided that, while I like this one a lot more than the last, at least for now, I'm really disappointed in the maps. There's not a single map good for sniping it seems. There's also no secret spots like there was in Highrise, but there's supposed to be a lot of smaller DLC packs released quicker in this one, so hopefully, they'll fix that. My friend also reminded me about War from World at War, whatever happened to that?

Aside from that, this game seems pretty great so far, the new pointstreaks are great, and Spec Ops is really fun, too. I was wondering if anyone might wanna share class ideas? I personally like the MP5 with Kick and Rapid Fire, the two cancel out nicely. I do the same thing with the Scar-L and ACOG. I really haven't found much use for any other proficiencies. I was thinking we could try to somehow compile how to unlock which titles as well, as the Wikia is taking forever to even start that it seems.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day, does that mean one should not get a better clock?

I'm not saying metacritic is the holy grail of review suppliers--- at least not after the defacement of portal 2

The only thing is the portal 2 situation solved itself pretty quickly, even with that /v/ influence driving the way
a score revision that I don't see mw3 having, especially when the dislikes for the game scrape the 1000's.

And the fact that people as privileged as the devs at mw3 are paying attention to such a thing means there is some legitimacy behind the scores that you cannot simply blame the site for. Metacritic is popular and taken very seriously, I doubt silly fanboys would be able to have there way with the site so easily.

The /v/ influence is the problem. Think about it, would you trust a news station run by the Mafia to be objective? Of course not! So why would you trust a "user" rating controlled by /v/?
Pardon the pun, but Portal 2 is small potatoes, so it makes sense that /v/ lost interest. CoD, on the other hand, is the big punching bag that everyone thinks it's cool to hate on, and that includes /v/. So why the hell WOULD the metacritic rating go up?

it's not just metacritic it seems

When I think about it, using basic logic, the whole /v/ influence and bf fanboy anger displacement is rather illogical.

Trying to deflect my portal point by attempting to downgrade it's relevance in the gaming media won't work, (in part because portal is extremely relevant in the gaming media, I don't know where you got that "fact" from)--

and partly because if mw3 has such fanbase overhaul (which, judging by the sales records, would be more than 10x stronger than /v/) what are the chances that they wouldn't stop by metacritic and rate their game?

argumentum ad verecundiam

hey look!! I can make links fight my battles for me too!!

Nick Wingfield of The Wall Street Journal wrote, "Movies have Roger Ebert. Wine has Robert Parker. Videogames have Marc Doyle. Mr. Doyle edits game reviews for Metacritic, a Web site he co-founded that can influence the sales of games and the stocks of videogame publishers. One company requires game publishers to pay higher royalties if they receive low scores on such sites." Wingfield wrote, "such review sites hold the most sway in the videogame industry partly because the stakes are higher for consumers shelling out $50 to $60 for a new game than they are for someone buying, for example, a $10 movie ticket." Wingfield wrote that the stocks of game publishers can fall when a new video game gets a disappointing score on the website.[2] Many executives say that low scores "can hurt the long-term sales potential" of game franchises-games that continue to produce spinoffs and sequels.[2]
