Ok the best game just went down to garbage. I am returning my copy and getting my money back.
The graphics are very nice, guns are nice.
The campaign was the bomb and captivating to the last mission.
The downfall of it is the same problem with online game.
First there is the server migration not often as MW2 but still there, the server match making is still horrible. When I quit a match it put me back to it 3! times to the same game. The difference when I am level 25 and then put in a match where everyone is level 70 and above. Then there is spawn campers by the dozen.
Other thing that kills the game is the COD Elite and what ever that is. When I entered the online menu in the game a pop up window asked to download it. That's is it, how greedy can you get, the best selling game and there offering better service for paid subscription where they should give the fans something free for their loyalty.

Remember when shooting games took skill and it wasn't about who had the biggest explosives? I have always hated the squirtgun fight known as the COD franchise but I enjoyed the challenge of hardcore search and destroy. It took some sort of skill if you could avoid the under barrel grenade launcher at the beginning (or spawn tubing) but then on this pathetic remake of every other COD game they bring in the fully automatic grenade launcher. Are you serious? Now there is no fun left to the game at all but for some reason they still included the hardcore game modes. Now the map packs that have been the same layout for every single one of there games just with different scenery require you to pay $60 for a 12 dlc subscription to get 1 or 2 things when they decide to give it to you is just dumb. This rip off they call a subscription is also giving other companys the idea that they should do this as well. 1/5 better games with cheaper DLC with more for less!

Modern Warfare 3 has a great campaign which starts up right after the ending to MW2. It has 16 missions total for just the campaign, but when you're playing the game on the easiest difficulty you're just going right through each mission within five minutes. The details and graphics are basically the same as MW2 just with new equipment. The story is still amazingly better than the second one.
The online is superb. It has a new way to keep track of everything called Call of Duty Elite. You can buy that online for only 50 bucks and it will be worth it because it will save you money when you download the DLC's. Anyways, the online is still the same as MW2's just with much more added stuff in it. Spec Ops is cool for some people, but I never enjoyed Spec Ops in MW2 and I don't think I will enjoy it on MW3 even if it does have survival mode. This game is a must buy or at least must rent. The only thing is; parents might have to be strict with their kids with this game as you already know there is a lot of violence, but not only that, there's a horrific amount of blood splattering everywhere as to be called gore so please parents, be cautious.
