Modern Warfare 3 Looks Purty

Shooter fans rejoice, MW3 is out today and it looks shiny.

With today's economy and the glut of great videogame titles coming out this month, MW3 probably won't sell as well as its predecessors. (If it does break records, I guess I'll have to eat my M-16.) That doesn't mean the latest military shooter from Activision isn't like gun manna from the gods for a certain cross-section of gamers. To tide you over until you read our review, or until you get home from work with the game in hand, take a gander at these sweet-looking shots of in-game play that Activision released for just such a purpose. Gun fiends, start salivating.

The behemoth publisher pulled out all of the stops for MW3's release by holding midnight sales events last night at over 13,000 retailers all over the world. "This watershed launch extends the legacy of the franchise like no other previous release," said Eric Hirshberg from Activision. "Combining the narrative punch and gameplay innovations of the next chapter in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series with the unique services of Call of Duty Elite will bring Call of Duty gamers together in a cohesive, fan-focused environment like no other."

I'm interested as to how the service of Elite will impact the multiplayer game. Everything I've heard about it hasn't really excited me - it sounds like similar programs such as Rockstar's Social Club - but Elite could work really well in uniting the COD crowd into a single army. Forget the KISS Army, now you can join COD for life!

inb4 HERP DERP COD IS TERRIBLE!

OT: Seriously looks quite nice. Might get it around Christmas.

While I'm not really a graphics whore those textures actually look pretty bad. Like, the floor textures, or the building in the second picture.
Still, I'll probably get it once it goes down in price is about 30 years.

Day 1 finished, level 41 reached and a pretty average kdr of 1.5 achieved. Am I enjoying the game? Yes. Am I ever going to touch the single player? No. I am so annoyed that Skyrim is coming out now as well, I don't have enough time to play both, which means I am hitting lvl 80 before Skyrim's release and then getting back into it a few weeks after Skyrim.

Graphics are pretty much identical to MW2, you will have to look hard to find a difference. But then the game pretty much is MW2, which I like. You are kidding yourself if you think its a wholly new game.

If you turn out to be wrong I imagine that will be a very unpleasant experience for you. Unless your M-16 is made out of cake.

...

Is your M-16 made out of cake?

Honest to God, I thought you may have have put up MW2 screenshots.

OT: Nah they actually look pretty nice, although ne of them looks a lot like a B3 screenshot I saw, oh well.

Yes cause everyone that doesnt like cod most be trolling. It's the best game in the world and it's nothing wrong with the game at all.

After playing the Multiplayer for several hours, I can say MW3 is a success on that front. Not a whole lot different from MW2, and it doesn't exactly look staggering, but it's fun and that's what matters.

Looking forward to giving the Campaign a go.

This looks exactly like MW2.

HERP DERP COD IS TERRIBLE

im glad the fans find it "purty" i think its just another gray, brown, tan fest, with flat textures, and the pic with the snow level i thought was black ops...

I never said that, in fact Cod ranks along side cavities in my opinion, I was just being witty and clever and doing what the second post said he was 'inb4'

Ah, my bad then.

It sure looks purty alright.

New coat of paint, check.
New SpecOps co op missions, check.
Short as hell single player game, check.
Multiplayer almost identical to the last one, check.
Not going down in price until the next game is out, except for a random steam sale next summer, check.

All the checks in the block are there.

It appears to be CoD with more assorted holes in walls and what appears to be more aircraft lodged in walls...

Is pic 7 played on the lowest high res possible...it looks gritty...

Also noticed all the pictures are from MP...nothing cool like a SP pic...

Still fun as ever, check.

OT: Tried it for a bit. Incredibly entertaining, and the multiplayer killstreak overhaul with the pointstreak thingy was better than I thought it would be. And I haven't played the campaign much but I'm looking forward to it, can't wait to see how the story continues.

Eh, it's a bit bland looking. I don't want to be one of these "ALL MODERN SHOOTERS ARE BROWN AND GREY HURP DURP" people but there's a difference between detailed/realistic and pretty. I'll stick with BF3 and it's colours, thanks.

Spoiler your damn images, woman.

OT: Meh. Will probably pick it up next month and have some fun with the multiplayer, if the PC version is up to par.

It does not look good at all. If you stop in-game for just a minute and take a look you can really see how awful the textures are. Even if characters are acceptable stuff like particles and environments look really atrocious.

I am saving my money for Skyrim, Hell, I haven't even gotten to level 50 in MW2, Guess I never will if i can't find players on those servers.

At this point, I just want to point out that the average gameplay length is probably around 5-7 hours for single player. So you could take a brief break from your kill streaks, maybe a portion of a day, and just play through the entire single player before Friday when Skyrim dominates our lives to the detriment of everyone else except CoD players.

The screens make me want to watch hd BF3 videos now... mmmm...

It's too bad I can't afford to purchase any new games until xmas, I wish I could contribute my vote toward the games I care about...

I feel bad for Skyrim too, because all the people who aren't usually RPG people, who would have given skyrim a shot, won't now. Ah well, I'm still gonna be playing the shit out of it.

Yeah and if you read the entire thread then you might see that I've already apologized for it.

Ah, my bad. Nevermind.

My roomies got this game at midnight and we played the game about an hour later. Apparently there are people that have already gotten to level 25 and higher.

Urrrrrr...
I'd say the last picture looks pretty nice but the others look dated. Almost like the game was from 2 years ago... oh wait. -_-

I have enjoyed the past CODs to varying degrees and I will probably get MW3 at some point I'm just waiting for more reviews and details so I can tell if its different enough from the others to make me what to get it.

I'm not saying it isn't fun I just don't know if it adds enough to get my sixty dollars.

I've been watching a lot of the walkthroughs and it looks ok. But gameplay wise, it is just more of the same Arcade style shoot em up. I know that Cods thing, but I think it is more of a rental.

eh.... I'm waiting for Skyrim and Saints Row.

HERP DERP COD IS TERRIBBLE!

It looks good. The same as every CoD game to come out since CoD 4.

C'mon, guys. Build a new fucking engine already.

What the hell? Second picture: "Das Arkaden" "Abfall nur"? It's obviously in Germany, but couldn't they at least get the article right, or the position? "Die Arkaden" and "Nur Abfall"!

Volf99:

Waiting for Saints Row too.
This will make the wait easier.

I think my wife picked it up this morning, we're sure to be playing split screen later tonight; shooting around the neighborhood she works in.

So this one looks good? What about on the ps3. The only other one I played was Blops and that wasn't a terrible port. Not like something from Bethesda or Sega.
