DEAR activision, Make interactive environments, longer campaign, ability to shoot out cameras and lights, move around levels(too heavily scripted linear levels are annoying), let us run around the levels mess with enemies, guns blazing or stealth, let us open/close doors(remember goldeneyes interactive environments? imagine that with a cod engine), add more realistic damage(grenades should cause gore, bullets should leave wounds or red marks on enemy) and than it will be a good game. Activision likes to make cheap, ultra linear, heavily scripted, short campaigns that require no brain work. so far this look like a cheap expansion pack for MW2...nothing new or cool to see here. MW3 has Switchable scopes and online multiplayer!...big deal. I think Half life 2 expansion pack are more epic and fun than Craptivisions recent COD games.

They slowly make better graphics but it looks very much like the other COD games............in order for this to be a better game it needs to add something to it that will keep me interested so far nothing they have showed has interested me...tell me if i'm wrong but i feel that activision needs to take more time in making this game...I want this game to be good i really do but i feel that its going to suck and or be more abysmal than black ops(witch would take a lot to drop that low)

i think that the guns are good and the graphic is good too but if add some more like flying a helicopter or a perfect spy mission and...... it will be a 10 rating game.

at 00:38 does anyone see how lame that looks? A shotgun should do more than make a person fall over without a mark on him....especially close range like that. When is infinity ward going to step it up? Activision raped the goldeneye remake, at least give us a good COD game. At least update the COD 4 engine a little bit!

I think nobody will play call of duty for the graphics but for the story of the single-player also i don't believe that spec-ops will be a hit and for the multi-player i expect it to be a lot like MD2 but a little bit different

@com3honorface23 It IS the same old sh*t as it has been since cod4. From COD 3 to COD 4 was a totally different game. They havent done anything to the game to improve it in ANY way. Sure minor improvements are nice but they havent really shown us anything that implements something new. They are using the SAME engine every year with minor improvements. No major improvements to graphics, physics etc. It is reskinned EVERY year and will make billions of dollars. They have all that money but still overcharge us for map packs (which im pretty sure is already made even before the game is released) and is still using hosts to connect. Activision is a very greedy company and do not want to spend money to bring in dedicated servers. They are more interested in making money than making their fans happy. Like someone said already, this is not a game, this is busine$$$$. /rant

I think this game is going to be great. I'm really looking forward to the campaign. We all know that the campaigns in all the call of duty games are amazing and I have no doubt this will be as amazing. The spec ops survival mode is going to be great. So it's like zombies... but do zombies shoot back? Hell no! It's going to take some serious tactics to make it through many stages in the survival mode. Now about the online play, sure it's probably going to be the same with a few modifications, but can you blame them for not completely revamping it. The games are played online so much so apparently people like it so why change it? I'm excited to see what possible new perks will be in the game and what new weapons, attachments, etc. there will be. I am a hardcore MW player so as long as they keep making the games and don't screw anything up I'll keep buying them!

What kind of game has a fully auto shotgun but no flesh wounds? Do the people at IW do any research? Do they have any idea the damage these modern guns do to a human body? A watermelon?

hey guys did you notice all of the REACH the TRILOGY series? BFBC3 UNCHARTED3, MW3, what else?? Will you expect there will PS4 soon?? better tech, just give your response. anyone want to donate for me to buy another mw3 + ps3 console? cos mine infected with kmeaw, lolzzzz

Damn it, I wanna be excited about the game, but... I just can't. MW 1and2 were fun. The multiplayer was enjoyable(- the commando perk) and the fact they gave no effort what so ever to stop the blatant hacking was rather disheartining. Then came the 15 dollar map packs. So I had to wait months to get DLC at a reasonable price. Black Ops, highly unmotivated to get it, and yet I still did, I blame old age and imminent seniliaty, god what a badly made game, hit detection anyone? And yet, following in the foot steps of the idiot masses I will probably get MW3, and if it comes to it I guess you BF3 folks will have a fresh noob to laugh at.

com3honorface23

For those of you who believe that MW3 is the (same old shi*), you are either blind and/or deaf. Yes the game play is very similar but the graphics and textures are clearly improved. How much do you expect them to change the game when their previous game(MW2) earned an incredible amount of money and won so many awards. Also, i am not hating on battlefield either, i think that that game will also be very good and i will be getting both COD and B3. they are both good games in different ways but if you watch this cod trailer and you think that it will suck, clearly you are an idiot.

wedran123
wedran123

New and exciting ways?....0:39....same animations...exact same scene as in MW2....even more auto shotgun rape......Still focused on "OOOH SHINY AND EXPLOSIVE!" moments rather than on gameplay....wont buy this....or BF3....Serious sam BFE takes priority....

I like listening to all those losers who rant about how COD sucks and Battlefield rocks. They both have their strengths and weaknesses. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes. Really, though, all you COD haters are just hating on it 'cause they're getting their arses kicked in the FPS genre. Please, there's no need to hate or waste your time on videos like this if all your going to do is just whine about how this game is going to rock your socks. Get over it, and come to the dark side! :D We have green lettering! ^^

@ bramterris You've made your point about why you like Battlefield more than Call of Duty, and that's good on you, since you actually gave me the "perspective" you said I should get, which is actually what I asked for in the first place, a REASON. So many people flame it, yet nobody says why. However. You also proceeded to call me a nub? Whatever that is, I can only assume you meant nube or 'noob' as it is actually spelled, but not really, cause they're not real words. And a foo? Also not in the English language. Then proceeded to tell me I got "owned ". This combined with dozens of other misspelled words, using the wrong words in place of other words (such as "wasting are lives" instead of wasting OUR lives) and poor sentence structure seriously troubles me. You've grossly over presented your vast inability to be clever in insulting me. I can only assume you suffer from retardation, so I find your attempts to "own" me completely flawed, and void. But it's O.K. Since you clearly are illiterate, inept, unintelligent, and possess the IQ of Gnat, I forgive you for your slanderous words. Have great day :)

@THORINATOR If you havnt noticed already, that is what activision does with every successful game...they think just cuz the first one was successful they can make the same exact game over and over again every year with little effort to make the most money. bobby kotick does not believe in publishing quality games. Just look how bad PC has been screwed over with CoD over the past years.

i like the survival spec ops. reminds me alot of the new horde 2.0 on gears.

@Laiken88 Because, as we know, they are exactly the same genre of game; in both you kill things with weapons... (Note the sarcasm)

@FretsOfDeath Wasting are life is the best man, and aren't you doing the same thing anyways? But seriously, get some perspective man. I've been playen cod since the original, ive probably logged atleast 1000 hours in that game. New medal of honor is garbage, dunno what people are saying its better then black ops or watever. However, Battlefield 3 is epic. The basic premise of cod never changes. Every battlefield game has changed and gotten better, but cod has pretty much been the same. Seriously dude, look at MW3 and then BF3. BF3 is obviously the better made game. Also, Infinity ward lost half of its staff, the good half, so you really think they can make a game even close to as awesome as MW. I doubt it. Id also like to add that each battlefield has changed a lot. Battlefield 2 to Bad company added in destruction, and then Bad company 2 added complete destruction of buildings, so that they would even collapse. Battlefield 3 adds incredible visuals with a realistic feel to battle. They have lighting effects such as shooting out street lights to become less visible or blinding someone with a flashlight. The ability to actually do suppressing fire (even in multiplayer), which partially blurs and disorients the people being suppressed. And they actually let you use the bipod in BF3, which as far as i know MW3 will probably just have em for show. Learn to argue nub. You just got owned with legitimate reasons foo!

And another thing, you'll say you hate CoD cause it's the "same old s**t", but you'll rave about games like Battlefield and Medal of Honor. Medal of Honor was a flop with the shortest campaign I've ever seen in a FPS which couldn't hold even the smallest candle to a game like Modern Warfare. And the only integrity it could hold was it's graphics. And it isn't like Battlefield is coming coming out with all of these amazing new ideas with each one of it's releases. And I'm not hating on Battlefield or Medal of Honor. I like all three games, but common, if you gonna complain, at least come up with legitimate reasons as to why you hate the game, rather than just having you weak minds fall prey to some stupid mob mentality that makes it popular to hate CoD these days.

FretsOfDeath

Ok, so here's my question. If you losers who only b**ch about CoD all the time hate it so much, then why do you spend so much time watching the videos, and trolling the comments section. Get a life!!!

They should have made a modern 3 before the last one, Medal of honour ran rings around the last and they were not impressed, They never had a sniper stage in the last which in games.. is always the best stage, That number stuff and silly story line was a mistake, If you want real a war game get the last Medal of honour and look out for battlefeild 3. Halo is dying and so will this with other real compation on the seen

Why would you click on the link to watch a video about MW3, then trash the people and the game? It's the very definition of "Trolling". My cry for de tante will fall on troll-ears, but c'mon guys! Is this fun for you?....Anyways, the revamped spec-ops mode seems cool.

You guys are so annoying at GS. I spent 15mins reading the interview article, and at the very end, you had a link for the vid? Really? ARRRGH!

Where's the multiplayer footage? Isn't that the main reason for most people buying CoD games. I actually like MW2 & I've even started to get into Black ops online. But, I have to agree with some of the comments here. I understand that Activision doesn't wanna take a chance changing things too much...but come on, this footage doesn't look as if they've done anything to evolve the franchise, it could easily be mistaken for MW2 DLC...they're either getting very lazy or else they're playing it way to safe. I just dunno, This is seriously going to be the first Cod that i'm unsure about! E3 was the ideal place to showcase MW3 & try to convince people that they've brought it up a notch, but after seeing this poor effort i just might actually hold off on buying MW3 & actually rent it first...I'm just not gonna blow money on what so far looks almost exactly the same as the last MW!

BEWARE THE 11-08-11 SCAM!!! IT IS AN ELABORATE RUSE TO MAKE PEOPLE THINKS ITS ACTUALLY A GAME OF QUALITY BUT IN FACT IT IS NOT. BUYER BEWARE.

It doesn't really matter what you folks have to say. I'm just sick of hearing the b!tching like little school girls. As far as my intelligence because I didn't proofread my message, grow up! I didn't realize I was writing an essay for literature. As for the wall of text, you'll just have to deal with it or not read :). With that being said, im not paying for the same game, because I bet it's going to be different levels, features, and game modes. I don't understand what kind of change you want from activision but if your expecting a dramatic change, try another game that may satisfy your needs. But why come to a cod trailer and talk about another game? Either way all the little complaining school girls just need to quit complaining and just move on because cod isn't like bf3, THANK GOD! Activation charging 20$ for the map packs now?! That is completely unacceptable but I'll spend 20$ to continue my entertainment for a game I love cause I don't have to ask my parents for money! In conclusion, if you don't love the way mw3 looks and hate it cause it's "the same game" then you were never a fan because I could only hope mw3 is the same just like the two previous modern warfare games that kept me playing for hours and hours.

@awesomesologuy - lol. Simply based off you're attempt to come back at me - and especially in the way you chose to define what apparently transfers to actual 'skill' just makes my original statement even that much more valid. Sorry, you're concept that revolves around a persons k/d ratio defining that players actual 'skill'........it honestly shows you're lack of understanding - that of which does coincide with a players 'skill'. Also just to make it a bit more clear since you can only seem to respond with hostility and tbh...quite laughable attempts at insults. So as for my skills, I'm just gonna say that they're probably not that close in comparison. Again I'm still not _trying_ to be a d*ck but, if you really wanna try and come back at me with anything even close to your previous comment.......find a ghostwriter or at least ask for some help in composing your next masterpiece. GL buddy.... cK-lost hope

@Awesomesologuy People do not like Call of Duty BECAUSE it's the same thing every year. When a game remains unchanged for so long, it is not due to a fantastic formula, it IS due to a complacent Fanbase that is simply allowing a series (like CoD) to become too formulaic, it Stifles Creativity, and snuffs out the Freshness and Fun of what call of duty was. You are right when you say "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" and I enjoy call of duty titles for that specific reason, however it is also due to that familiar formula that i enjoy CoD only when borrowing it from a friend instead of purchasing it. It is also due to these reasons that I enjoy Battlefield more than Call of Duty. Battlefield has made some serious changes since Battlefield 2, adding such explosive and creative..."De-construction" adding a humorous Campaign, creating Expansive Maps and allowing tactical prowess to be displayed. In conclusion, Call of Duty has transformed into a Fun,formulaic and ephemeral experience, and it need more creativity than what is being shown...

They've been laughing their way to the bank for 3 years now. Its the dumbass 8 year olds that arent smart enough for battlefield that keep these clowns afloat. How was Blackops not MW3. modern guns, perks etc. same graphics you could get on PS2 and no innovation I hope sales plummet in November. Nothing like going from hero o zero in one year

cram as much "cool" events as possible into each frame, scr3w if it's totally unrealistic. Let the player do what? ... yeah duck hunt on rails while watching cutscenes! ... that would make them feel involved. It was cool the first time but running the exact same concept every 6 month is really putting the nails in the coffin on this franchise. Im gonna bail on this one for sure.

To me mw has become mudane and mindless, I mean its soo freakin easy to hack the dang thing. Aimbots lagswitches. Sure other fps have those but they are harder to hack, and plus I've played a lot of fps and cod has had the most people using hacks than any other fps that I have played. Hell I've played battlefield ever since it came out all versions and very rarely do I run into a player that is using a hack. Heck I've gone months playing bfbc2 and not run into a person using a hack, unlike cod almost everygame has someone using an aimbot or a lag switch kinda kills the game.

@ awesomesologuy Wow you are really out to attack every one who thinks the game is over rated. Why say they must have a bad K/D? What, they are displeased with a games lack of creativity and so they must obviously be labled as a newb? A few things i would like to point out. One, learn to use the preview link to proof read your post. Two, please stop with the wall of text and third but most pertinent to the topic, you miss the point. Activision is scamming you by sending out the same game with a new name. It is equivalent to re-gifting. Activision is now charging $20.00 for their DLC as are a lot of other publishers. It seems to be the new trend. So that would make the math work. Almost forgot!! I think GS need to force their members to an apptitude test before posting.
