Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

games No Comments »

The storyline of Modern Warfare 3 picks up where MW2 left off. Russia is still at war with America, Makarov is on the loose, and the world faces total destruction. In the single player campaign mode you are taken everywhere from Paris to New York. The familiar narration guides you through the checkpoints and will keep you moving along with clear objectives. While trying to find and kill Makarov you’re sent on various short missions like protecting the Russian president and disrupting a chemical weapon attack on Paris. Most of the gameplay is on foot with a few missions being carried out using drones or mounted guns on vehicles to engage large groups of enemies. Firefights during ground assaults varies, sometimes when the enemies have you pinned down they will keep spawning at a rate that will force you to run through to the next area, instead of picking them off one-by-one.

Multiplayer mode has been improved with three new strike packages. The offensive-minded assault package deals rewards like air strikes, remote control assault drones and a proximity-based IMS. Choosing the support package will keep your killstreak from getting reset when you get killed and allows the deployment of more defensive measures like counter-UAV’s, recon drones and SAM turrets. The specialist package provides strategic perks like sleight of hand and overkill instead of weapons.

Modern Warfare 3 is similar to MW2 in both weapons and gameplay, but the new strike packages allow for more flexibility in multiplayer matches, and the campaign mode finally ends the war between Russia and America.

In March 2012, Bioware will be releasing their highly anticipated conclusion to the widely lauded Mass Effect series, Mass Effect 3. Set shortly after the events of Mass Effect 2, ME3 follows Shepard as he or she bounds across the galaxy to prepare for the invasion of the Reapers. Locations include the familiar Citadel, but many new places will be introduced including the Salarian and Turian homeworlds, a human mining base on Mars, and a giant metropolis on Earth of combined cities Seattle and Vancouver.

Like the previous game, ME3 will allow gamers who have played through the first two games to import their save files, which, with over 1,000 cumulative choice and action variables, will dramatically influence how the final game is played. Game play and combat have continued to be refined, including advanced movement and melee options, improved enemy AI, and deeper RPG elements.

Perhaps the most interesting addition to Mass Effect 3 will be it’s “Galaxy at War” mode, which has four people playing together to play unique missions which can affect players’ single player campaign. Players will be able to create new characters for themselves in almost any race from the game, including Turian, Asari, Drell, and Krogan. These characters will be able to level up just like in the single player mode and gain unique skills and abilities.

Mark your calendars for March 6th in anticipation for what could be 2012′s most anticipated release!
