This game takes place right after Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. There’s a slight problem with that: They didn’t make a CoD: Modern Warfare 2 for the Wii, so I have little idea as to what the story is.
But the game does a great job of getting me up to speed on what’s going on, starting with an invasion of America and the New York Stock Market, then going all over the world to find the leader of the opposition and eliminating him. The single player mode gives all the thrills I was expecting from a CoD game (great level design and varied weapons), and several thrilling moments (something that other first person shooters for the Wii are lacking).
The main mode will take about four to six hours for most players to complete, and I like the levels enough that I would want to go back and give them another go.
But there’s one thing I don’t like about the single player campaign: the enemy intel. Just what is the purpose of getting those briefcases? They have no impact on the game whatsoever, and they don’t give any tips on what enemies you face in the single player mode.
But it’s a good thing there’s online multiplayer where you, your friends, and some others can go out and blast each other like in other CoD games. This mode is what most players are going for.
Yet, I would’ve liked to see an offline multiplayer game, like they have in Conduit 2 or the latest Goldeneye on the Wii, so we can wage war without relying on an online connection.
Still, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 delivers on almost everything that I was looking for in a first person shooter. It makes me wish they made a Modern Warfare 2 for the Wii. BUY IT.

For the record I own Modern Warfare Reflex "Wii", Black Ops "Wii", World At War Final Fronts "PS2'" and Call of Duty 2 "360" . And have played Modern Warfare "360" Black Ops "360' and a little of MW3 on both the "360" and "PS3" So i can say easily that MW3 is the best Call of Duty game I've ever played.
I've beat the campaign on Recruit (which is the easiest) difficulty setting and I gotten it in the mail yesterday and it only lasted for me 05h: 021min: 51s
The Graphics are some of the best on the Wii very smooth and colorful.
The Frame Rates are some of the highest on the Wii.
And you can use the Classic Controller Pro . I haven't tried using the Wiimote Nunchuck combo yet and I can't play online multiplayer or Spec Ops at the time of review.
So there you have it , Rent the game and try it out I think you'll gonna love it :)
I really liked this game. It was fun but it seems like now it didn't last long enough! I really wish the campaign mode would have gone another 10 - 12 hours. Other than that, I really like the game! I would recomend it to anyone!
