For most MW3 is and will be a great game. The reason it is rated a 5 is because two years ago another great game was released. And guess what. This game is identical in almost every why to that game. Lets look at what is different. One, New multiplayer maps. Two, New single player story line. Three, New weapons. Four, New game modes. Five, Multiplayer gameplay tweaks. But all these changes are cosmetic, the graphics are the same the game engine is the same. The game play is the same but that is a good thing. All this leads me to one conclusion. This is not a "new game" its a modification and patch of an old game. And despite the fact I know I would enjoy this game immensely I just cannot bring my self to pay $59.99 for it.
