Welp. The news surrounding Modern Warfare III keeps going from bad to worse. In truth, nobody here at GAMINGbible expected the outlook for the game to improve now everyone has access to it, but that doesn’t make the beating the game’s taking any easier to watch.

If you’ve not heard all the controversy behind this Call of Duty title, where have you been? It’s second only to GTA VI trailer news, which, as we all know, is all anyone truly cares about. MWIII has sent fans into a fury with its lacklustre story, with the main campaign playable in three hours.

See what the devs have to say in the Modern Warfare 3 interview!

Undoubtedly, this is part of the many reasons why MWIII has sunk into the realms of Metacritic’s 10 worst games of the year. No developer or publisher wants to see its game in such a dire category, nor the added pain of reading that all its reviews are “mixed or average”, which, for a AAA game, is shocking. Not quite as shocking as charging fans full price for a three-hour game, but it comes damn close.

Being the dedicated gamers that we are, we played MWIII so you don’t have to unless the need arises; our very own Richard Lee Breslin described it as “a disappointing finale to the rebooted Modern Warfare trilogy”, as well as saying it’s “a low point for one of the biggest video game franchises of all time”. Strong words, and these are coming from someone who has played and enjoyed CoD in the past, further adding weight to his comments.

Don’t just take our word for it though, listen to the countless fans who’re upset that this is what they’ve been left with: a half-baked game that’s glorified DLC in disguise. “Literally half a campaign with a cliffhanger ending for the third game in what should be a trilogy,” described one reviewer, while another said, “Worst disappointment since the series started”.

That same gamer continued, “The biggest slap in the face is that the game is literally a DLC and doesn't even have a platinum trophy. They were pushing the 100-dollar version like crazy for this lazy copy-and-paste effort.”

Activision must be feeling all these harsh burns because they’re relentless. This is not how you do a game launch – devs and publishers take note, this time of reception is to be avoided. That being said, if you want to struggle to play through it and have the ending explained for you by outside sources, you can buy MWIII on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
