That is not a bad review at all my friend.

I'm tempted to grab it, solely because I'm confident in IW's ability to deliver significantly more stable net code and more refined gameplay compared to that other war shooter thing that makes me want to punch children out of rage.

I've noticed already on Facebook that everyone, I mean everyone, seems to be buying this. I guess we already knew that would happen, but seriously, the managment at Activision must be thinking about bathing in cash for the next 6 months.

Saying that though Denny, the two games are different. One has you playing Quake with assault rifles, the other presents you a full battlefield to play in.

As you said, time will tell.
Won't get this for a few weeks yet until the community start saying it's boring, unbalanced etc. I really enjoyed MW2, but found Black Ops really bland after AK 74U ruled everything else...

ಠ_ಠ

Different games, though if the hit rego and general net code is better than BF3, it is to me a better game already, especially if its gunplay is solid (which it most likely is)

This article marks my very last review for PALGN. After five Call of Duty reviews and more, is has been a real pleasure writing for PALGN and working with the best people you could ask for. I would like to take the opportunity to thank both our fantastic readers and staff for making this ride an absolute blast.

I knew your tag line had a double meaning, thanks for all the wonderful reviews you have provided to me whilst I have been here.

To be honest I kind of like the hitreg in bf3.

Like, I know it's client side, but I'm more annoyed by missing someone I'm shooting right at than being shot at from behind a wall.

Maybe it's because I played a lot of RO2 in the lead-up so not dying in one shit feels like luxury.

As for on-topic, the advantage with MW3 for me is probably being able to play it on high settings ho ho.
Not that I'm buying it but yea.

AlaCarcuss the PC version has no major differences. Probably just a server browser, a little graphical upgrade and as always better controls icon_wink.gif.

Having a pretty good time with it though there isn't really much incentive to branch out to try other guns eg sniper/shotguns. Got the m4a1 up to lvl 20 and maxed out the akimbo foldout secondary machine pistol (forgot the name).

The same thing happened with Battlefield 3. Your typical cognitive dissonant fankids will jump onto Metacritic and leave a game a terrible user review despite most likely having never played the game before. They have way too much time on their hands.

Farewell by the way, Anthony! Your excellent reviews will be missed. D=

Thanks guys! While I won't be writing any more reviews, I'm still on the PALGN admin team.
