Coming soon to a DLC near you soon: unlock the magic bullet perk, AKA the "JFK" perk, allowing you to fire one shot, kill someone, and then go into reverse and hit them again from another angle. Feel like you're taking too much hits? Well, that's no problem. Behold the Matrix perk, where you can stop your mate's internet connection on the fly and duck under their bullets. They won't know what the fuck hit them.

All for the groovy price of 25 big ones! You know you want it. You know you'll have it. because you're a fucking sucker for it.

Having played BF3 mercilessly since Tuesday makes this franchise really show its age. MP looks the same with perks renamed and moved around to make them seem new. It may still be a great MP game, but this style of play has worn out on me and it's starting to look kind of ugly.

BF3's multiplayer sure is better, but Im enjoying the single player campaign in MW3 alot more. I thought the campaign for BF3 had a good story, but over all pretty meh and very short at 4.5 hours. Been playing the campaign in MW3 for about 2 hours and its way more fun, doesnt look as pretty as BF3 but its no way as boring as BF3 was. Sure Im gonna hear 'But its all about multiplayer', true...but its sad alot of fps games today have a meh single player campaign.

I sometimes get to see Black ops multi being played round a friends and on occasions i attempt playing it. It seems so easy but then i try to play and get absolutely nowhere. The only game i can play relatively well this way is a Halo game

What's the secret then because everyone but me seems to pick it up real quick

Will definitely get this one, so much new stuff added and that intense fast gunplay with 60fps, looks awesome.
I am definitely excited for the new Kill Confirmed (sorry campers lol) and Survival Mode and the good old TDM.

Though I hoped they could upgrade it visually, or atleast add some visual tricks like lensflare or something.

He uploads new SP videos on youtube, walkthroughs.

I really don't understand the logic in giving, not only those who are already better than average players, but those who have simply played more, an advantage. This has always been my gripe with the COD series...

there not going to handicap players who are good though just so people who are only ok have a chance.

That's really all they can do. You think these guys can actually improve upon the MW engine to make something totally new and awesome? They probably didn't even have a hand in it when it was created, Sledgehammer games... who the hell is that? Infinity Ward is just a name now, the soul of that company is gone. These ass-clowns are just cashing in on groundwork already laid out for them. It's like @gettingplayed said: This is just a big ass expansion pack. $29.99 tops.

Not really, IMO thats the best thing.
It gives you something to do constantly, progress through various weapons and perks and now killstrikes to level them up and gain an extra thing.
I love how much you you can unlock stuff, and unlock within an unlock in MW3.

For example the regular perks gets an "Pro" edition that gives you an additional extra ability.

And with Survival Mode and Spec Ops, just more fun!

It just seems like they're applying the player perks model to the weapons in the sense that the perks don't really have any real world explanation they're just magical perks that for whatever reason gives the weapon this ability and while arguably this works with the player abilities I feel like it's just too much of a stretch to apply this model to weapons.

Can't get into this after playing bf3, as I been blown away with the visuals on such a huge game its insane. I just can't go back to the smaller maps of call of duty, but I do wish to play the single player as they have some great campaigns in COD. Rental most likely
