The ratings of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 prove that we are not dealing with the strongest production in the Activision series. Journalists and players leave no stone unturned on the game, which is the responsibility of, among others, Sledgehammer Games.
The first part in the Call of Duty series, which was released just after Activision Blizzard was acquired by Microsoft, is not a hit. Unfortunately, the shooter, which according to some reports was supposed to be only an addition to last year’s part, but after some changes was considered a “premium product”, is met with unfavorable reception among enthusiasts of the genre. There is no doubt that these were not the publisher’s plans…
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 currently boasts ratings of 50% from journalists, who have already had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the campaign, zombie mode and spent some time on multiplayer servers. Games from the Activision universe have never received scores above 90%, but it can be safely said that this is a truly terrible result.
The shooter also faces extremely negative comments from the Metacritic community, currently having an average of 1.4/10, which is a kind of confirmation of the problems.
There was also no shortage of critical voices on Steam, where Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 receives a rating of approximately 28% from the Valve community. This is a really bad result, clearly showing that Activision did not make a good decision by delivering a full version this year and forcing developers to work intensively. Unofficially it is said that the feature part was created in just 1.5 years.
Will developers cope with the change of opinion? This can be really difficult, because the latest installment is criticized for its poorly implemented campaign, the lack of new maps (we are mainly talking about refreshed locations) or the unsuccessful idea for the zombie mode.
