Since yesterday, owners of pre-orders can play the campaign of the new Call of Duty with the subtitle Modern Warfare 3. According to the first reactions of players who have already finished the story mode, it is one of the shortest and worst campaigns in the entire history of the series. In terms of length alone, it has the whole experience take about 3 to 5 hourswhich is below average even for the Call of Duty series.
The structure of individual missions is also criticized. While some of them offer a classic linear experience with traditional action moments for the series, which are evaluated positively, the rest of the missions bets at more open levels, which seemingly give the player more freedom. However, according to the reactions so far, this new format has not been successful at all and should act as a side mission for Warzone.
Other users also point out that although the game offers 15 missions on paper, some of them last only units of minutes, so the actual number of actual missions is less. The campaign for Modern Warfare 3 is included characterized rather as an expansion for the previous volume, which is not that surprising. Activision itself originally planned this year’s installment as an expansion for last year’s Modern Warfare II. But in the end, during development, he decided to make it a “traditional” part at full price. We’ll see how the multiplayer component, which will be unlocked for players on November 10, turns out.
