---------- CAMPAIGN ---------
Pros: Continue the intense campaign right where MW2 left off. Wonderful pacing. Non stop exaggerated action. Plenty of memorable moments. Best FPS campaign since COD4.
Cons: If rushed, can be relatively short. Enemy AI is relentless on harder modes.
---------- COOP ----------
Pros: Coop has it's own ranking system and unlockables. Auot-Matchmaking has been added. Plenty of trophies to hunt down. Coop is strong enough to last many hours. Good amount of missions.
---------- MULTIPLAYER ----------
Pros: Minor upgrades add to the already popular COD formula. Insane amount of game modes. Large amount of weapons and equipment. New killstreak system. Same fast paced arcade action you expect from COD.
Cons: The upgrades are not enough to justify this as a new experience. More of the same. Literally looks and feels like MW2. This game could have been so much more.
---------- OVERALL ----------
MW3 feels like MW2.5.
While the single player and coop are truly the best parts about MW3, the sole reason people buy this game is to hop online which is a huge disappointment.
Infinityward pretty much relied on the name for sales and did not deliver a fresh experience, something the fans honestly deserved.
MW3 online brings almost nothing new to the franchise which is strange since Treyarch went a different route last year and succeeded. The strong single player and coop saved this game from getting a lower score in the end. If you did not like MW2, don't bother with MW3. It's pretty much the same game.
