Wanna know what “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s” multiplayer gameplay will look like? Well, uh, it sorta looks like “Modern Warfare” and “Modern Warfare 2” with doses of “Black Ops”, actually. Only, you know, with a new letter behind the title. I’m sure there’s more to it than that, but damn, I sure wish they’d shown it here.
In case it’s not obvious by now, I’m a bit disappointed that “MW3” doesn’t seem to have brought anything really new to the table here. In fact, it doesn’t even look as if it’s offering up much of a dramatic upgrade from “Black Ops”, the other “Call of Duty” franchise. Of course, it probably doesn’t help that this 3 and a half minute trailer doesn’t seem to have been cut with any noticeable flare whatsoever. Mind you, I still think the game itself will be worth having, I just wish they’d hired someone with better skills to cut the trailer that reveals their multiplayer gameplay for the very first time. And couldn’t they have picked a better map? Sheesh. What is this, “Modern Warfare 2” redux?
You also don’t get any sense of the class options, the weapons available, kill streaks, etc. Compared to that awesome co-op gameplay trailer, this one is very lacking. I mean, where are the attack dogs with exploding collars???
“COD: Modern Warfare 3” launches on all the consoles November 8, 2011.
