Modern Warfare 3 hits 90 on MetaCritic – all the scores

Tuesday, 8 November 2011 08:05 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Following the big worldwide launch last night, reviews for Modern Warfare 3 have appeared online following the lifting of an embargo this morning, with Meta scores hitting 90. Catch the reaction below the break.

The Xbox 360 version has hit 90, while the PS3 version has reached 88. No score yet for the PC version due to a worrying lack of reviews.

Response so far seems to be between eights and nines, but the consensus seems to be that it is a still a very action-packed title.

All the scores so far are below. If you want us to add one, you know the drill:

Modern Warfare 3 is out now for 360, PS3 and PC.


  • Bungie “always” looking at Exotic changes for Destiny updates

    Destiny developer Bungie won’t stop tinkering with Exotic weapons. In Destiny, Exotic weapons are supposed to be the best of the best – and to feel unique. Guns like Ice Breaker and Gjallahorn definitely hit the mark there (although less so when everyone has one), but unfortunately, there are a few that just don’t strike […]

  • Is Uncharted 4′s first trailer a tribute to Crash Bandicoot?

    Uncharted 4′s first proper trailer bears some remarkable similarities to the opening moments of a much earlier Naughty Dog game. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has more in common with Crash Bandicoot than you might think. It’s Naughty Dog’s first game on a new console, yes – but if you compare Uncharted 4′s E3 2014 […]

The comment arose after the site asked if Sonic would become […]

  • Destiny PvP rewards system to be addressed

    Destiny developer Bungie has said it will change the way Crucible rewards work.

    Meanwhile the user reviews in metacritic shows how bad scoring review system can be!

    Just like the review from some mainstream site itself that write how Modern Warfare never change from time to time, but yet, they still rated it quite high with many lame subjective excuses (like this is what you expect from MW, this is what MW3 is, this is what many people/fans always wanted, this is their success formula, they are on the different side with BF 3, etc).A.k.a they praised and scored MW 3 high for being the same and another game that brings innovation being judged badly because its too ambitious (red orchestra 2, payday the heist,etc)!

    Sad, very sad! Meanwhile, every nice shooter like Crysis 1, Deus Ex, etc. only sold in a small fraction of this annual DLC!

    Thats why scoring review system are broken, without any valid reason some user give it a 0, 3 , or 4 . Meanwhile, mainstream review site just tend to give it a 8, 9 or 10 that loose any connection with what they’ve been written before!

    Uncharted 3 Eurogamer review being an example for this! By read it’s review I would thought its gonna be 6 out of 10 because its crytal clear read that the writers seems pretty annoyed by it flaws! But, magically an 8 appears at the bottom of the article! That’s magic!

    Reviewer should read this before reviewing their game

    #23 3 years ago

    I’ve decided to get this on PS3.

    PSN gives me much better connections than XBL here in the Middle East.

    I was playing CoD4 (my only PS3 game) this morning, and getting better connections than I’ve ever gotten with either BO or MW2 since I’ve been here.

    “In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.”

    I think “*falls asleep*” could qualify unless you’re going to be really anal about the reasons why you would say it in the first place. ;)

    #27 3 years ago
  28. Ireland Michael

    @26 The service is broken! It’s not working as intended! Sledgehammer can’t do their job right! They’re a bunch of hacks who can’t even get a game running properly for launch! It should have worked PERFECTLY! YOU DAMN NOOB DEVELOPERS! IT SHOULD JUST MAGICALLY WORK! SERVERS JUST WORK!

    …am I doinv this right? Not enough ignorance? Does it maybe need more exclamation points? Worse spelling Help me out here!

    @27 “with the primary intent”

    See, there you go.

    If I were posting my messages with the deliberate intent of getting a rise out of people, it would be an accurate choice of works. But I’m not. I’m simply expressing my opinion of the franchise.

    Whether you find it repetitive or not doesn’t change that fact. How people choose to respond to my posts is entirely their own prerogative.

    Once the “Glee” factor wears off or thins, then you will start to get “real” peoples opinions. Of course I expect Hard Core, Die Hard COD fans to stand firm on their scores.

    The rest will tend to gravitate towards a true score over time.

    Right now what I am hearing is that Activision is really going balls out trying to get your money with this game. Elite Memberships, all the Licensed crap out there. You could walk in a store and spend $500 to $1000 for all the COD3 Crap they are pushing!

    Like anything, when you first get something new you are excited, till you get it home, wash off the make-up and see the cracks and imperfections, that’s when the true answer comes, “Do you still really think so highly of the game?”

    And I look forward to that time……Buy the game because you want to, not because all your friends are and your caught up in the hype!

  32. Iliad

    Hurrah! Now maybe all the lone wolf CoD players with little understanding of the word “teamwork” will bugger off, leaving actual BF vets who know the importance of working as a team to arm and disarm M-COMs rather than just trying to buff their K/D ratio.

    #32 3 years ago
  33. Ireland Michael

    @32 It won’t happen instantly, but you will see them gravitate eventually. It may also take a while for the stragglers to move on as well, but it’ll happen.

    I’ll give it two or three months at least before the quality of matches really starts pushing it way back up to the standard of Bad Company 2′s matches, later in its cycle.

    #33 3 years ago


    If they’re “BF vets”, why don’t they have their own team by now?

    #34 3 years ago
  35. Ireland Michael

    @34 I always play in squads with personal friends of mine who I’ve enjoyed the franchise with for years. We’re consistently the Ace Squad on almost every match we play, and we almost always win, unless we get stuck on a team with some really bad players while the opposing team has really strong ones, since it’s all about teamwork.

    I personally rarelt play the games unless it’s with those group of friends, because I find nothing more tiresome than playing it with people unwilling or unable to communicate basic teamwork strategies.

    I think “veterans” is probably a stronger word than what he’s trying to get at. “People who actually know how to fucking play the game” would probably be a more accurate descriptor.

    #35 3 years ago
  36. viralshag

    @28 , Yes, that is true to a point. But if your only opinion of a franchise is negative, and you knowingly dislike it, then stating that opinion without any margin for debate could quite easily be considered as trolling. If people are responding to you because they are offended, then clearly something about your comment was inflammatory.

    If I walked into an art gallery, knowing I hate art, and then said to the nearest group of art lovers “you know what, everything in here is absolute shit,” and then walked out. I think it would be quite a stretch to claim I am merely stating my opinion and quite ignorant to think I’m not going to provoke people.

    #36 3 years ago
  37. Ireland Michael

    @36 If Call of Duty turns around tomorrow and updates its engine and design to create a really deep, immersive and engaging experience that promotes diversity, teamwork and original design, while evolving its gameplay with significant new advances that expands heavily on what has come before… I will be the first person on the rooftops championing its name.

    The misguided assumption from many people here that I simply “hate the franchise” is a false one. I simply don’t like what it’s become – iterative yearly releases of the *exact* same formula, over, and over… and over… and over… and over again.

    #37 3 years ago
  38. viralshag

    @37, if it did all of those things we would simply have another Battlefield. Diversity is what what makes gaming great. Wanting all games to be the same experience would make gaming a very boring hobby.

    You always troll when it comes to call of duty Mikey boy. It’s not my favourite franchise either but insinuating battlefield 3 is such a leap over previous titles in the series is pushing it a bit.

    Battlefield 3 feels very much like bad company 3 to me, especially on consoles. And remember, I’m sure we’ll see bad company 3 next year, dice and EA will want a yearly release just as much as acti… That’s not even mentioning medal of honour.

    On topic, does this support 3D the same as BLack Ops out of curiosity?

    Just sitting here, playing a ridiculous FM2012 demo (They want £98m for Chiellini!!???), and waiting…

    Seriously, you should get a 5.1 system. Not only will CoD sound much better with bass (and knowing when people are behind you), but so will all your other games.

    @49: LOL! Troll can’t read!

    #55 3 years ago


    That’s fair enough. I haven’t got it yet, but from what I’ve seen so far, there’s loads of new stuff.

    It just doesn’t look new, which I think is the biggest stumbling block for most people, and one which IW could theoretically have changed very easily.

    If this only turns out to be what MW2 should have been, it’ll still be the best online FPS so far IMHO.

    And then maybe moving across the room whilst he comes back again like a wounded bear and ROFLMAO as the proxy takes him out for the final humiliation.

    Having read a couple of reviews notably IGN Edge and EG this game looks like really good value for money.

    I found this quote from EG quite interesting.

    Comparisons to Battlefield 3 are expected, but played back-to-back, also fairly futile. Where multiplayer is concerned, the two are far more different than their surface similarities would suggest. Where COD wins out is in its coherence.

    Away from online, Battlefield 3 felt uncertain, its half-baked campaign and co-op modes dictated by the sudden marketing-led rebranding as the multimillion-dollar David to Activision’s billion-dollar Goliath. Modern Warfare 3, on the other hand, feels like a complete package from the start; the three gameplay areas – solo, co-op and multiplayer – all feeling like parts of a cohesive whole, driven by a clear and honed declaration of intent.

    Activision in their endless wisdom decided to send a copy of the 360 game to PC GAMER to review.

    Also no copy for RPS or any PC specific review publication. Strange after all that tooting of the PC horn that IW went through. I wonder why.

    I’m sure that it’s a good game and everything, but looking at those scores, shouldn’t people be slightly concerned that only 2 or 3 out of what, 30 critics, DO NOT give it a 9/10 or equivalent?

    Not knocking the game, but the fact that everybody and their mom seems to feel the same way about it is just batshit.

    More importantly, who’s playing it? How good is it? Impressions, stat!

    I think the conspiracy theory regarding BF3 players and their astute sense of when they’re dealing with CoD players is ridiculous for more than just being incredibly stupid.

    Really, BF3 needs CoD players more than ever. All people seem to want to do is sit around and trade shots with the enemy and throw packs at their guys because that’s “SUPER PRO DEFENCE”.

    @DSB, Basic rule of a journalism in videogames these days: Never dissapoint huge publishers when AAA comes out.

    When AAA comes out it must have 9-10 at minimum. 8 – is a bad game or a VERY BAD GAME.

    Expect after few years to have something like 11/10 out of every AAA title. Hell, it’s already started with Uncharted 2…

    @77 You’ll note that I didn’t at any point mention the c-word.

    I think there are more hopelessly incompetent basement bloggers posing as critics, than there are actual critics being paid off in that business :)

    I think it’s more a case of not wanting to “disappoint people” by writing your actual opinion, which completely undermines the whole thing. If you’re trying to think for your audience, then what you’re doing is either math or clairvoyance, rather than actual criticism.

    Not that MW3 wouldn’t be worthy of a 9. It’s just the fact that you have 30 people seemingly thinking the exact same things, which doesn’t make them look very good.

    @ orbitmonkey
    Yeah absolutely, add me. reask 1 is my tag.
    It was been advertised for 45 Euro in supervalu here in Ireland on the radio.
    I dropped in to my local store and was told they should be getting them in later. :(
    55 most other places.
    I will pick it up later this evening I reckon.

    #81 3 years ago
  82. reask

    I reckon the scores are for the overall package DSB.
    IGN and EG both said the sp is nothing new really.
    I think Edge may have said something similar.

    Lets be honest, 99.9 % of folks buying this expect nothing special of the sp.
    The other .1% have probably never played a game before so will be blown away by the speed in which the sp moves whilst not realising you could smoke a ciggy in most missions whilst your ai buddies do the work. :D

  83. John117

    I found a few reviwers in Norway who tells it clear and loud.
    The SP has left it’s roots from an involving story which shows the gritty truth of war and there was actually some meaning of those war qoutes when you die and wait for the respawn. In other words, it’s just some B ranked Hollywood movie with childrens dying.

    The MP is as harsh as ever and not being able to play by the rules will result in death over and over. Not keeping up with everyone else will just mean your a noob and death is imminent.

    Spec Ops is the bright side which gives soemthing new to the game, and good enough to give the game 4/6.

    #83 3 years ago
  84. DSB

    @82 Well it’s not that I disagree, I never played a Modern Warfare I didn’t like. I just wonder what makes everybody end up with 9′s. Surely someone out there must’ve enjoyed it slightly less, to the point of giving an 8 or a 7. It just doesn’t seem like people have a lot of interesting opinions on it.

    @83 That’s pretty much been the case for the better part of six years now. And really, let’s be serious here, the original Call of Dutys never really got close to something like Saving Private Ryan in terms of the real brutality of war. They were just Hollywood enough to make you think that way.

    I have no idea what happens to children in MW3, but in terms of the “gritty truths of war” – The fact is that women and children quite often end up as civilian casualties, because they generally hesitate more, and run slower.

    “The fact is that women and children quite often die a lot more than men do, because they generally hesitate more, and run slower.”

    Cruicially, they’re also less likely to get killstreaks and the associated care-packages assigned to them thereby further ensuring an easier death.

    Well i have heard that they are easing up on the Party Chat restrictions which is great news. Me and my fellow gaming friends are within the 28-35 bracket and don’t really want to listen to an American 12 year old (no offense im generalizing)shouting down the headset to tell us they are going to **** our mothers and how we have been “owned” simply because we are all employed and can’t spend 24 hours a day to becoming an elite MW2 player lol. We all sold MW2 for just that reason!
    You just cant fault the effort put into the gameplay of the MW series. especially when you catch yourself comparing every 1st person shooter against them. it has become the standard for such games so does deserve a high rating. though i do wish there was a “no little sh*ts” option with the new game as well :D

    #87 3 years ago

    I loved the first Modern Warfare campaign, I thought it was amazing, actually it still is amazing.

    Then the series kinda turned into a Tom Clancy tribute act with the levels of stupid it started pumping into things, instead of being similar quality between two different viewpoints it started to be apparent in MW2 that two different teams were working on each part of the campaign. The American invasion was visually lacking and devoid of anything arresting or interesting. It was busy work mainly while the SAS segments were fast and flowing.

    Now having seen the infamous leaked London video im under no illusion that things have gotten even worse. Its as if they took every measure to make London as British as possible without having pearly kings wandering about.

    Not interested in the multiplayer what so ever, never have been. Theres just something about the never ending movement which seems really silly within the context of the entire game.

    @88 Whoa whoa whoa. Tom Clancy tribute act?

    Maybe you’re referring to the Ubisoft games with the name on it, in which case I totally get it, but Tom Clancy is pretty much the master of writing fiction based on actual military and intelligence science.

    One of his books actually had an extremist hijacking a plane for the purpose of striking a target in Washington D.C., before 9-11 ever happened.

    I think he deserves better than being associated with the Modern Warfare plots :P

    @89 User reviews are always perfectly balanced, fair and accurate.

    GamingXP: 86%

    A worthy successor, spectacular, yet slightly problematic when it comes down to its AI. As MW3 offers a great experience and a strong multiplayer mode, it can be recommended.

    #94 3 years ago
  95. Dralen

    I’ve played and completed the singleplayer on Hardened difficulty now. I’ve also played a few hours on multiplayer and special ops, and I can safely say it’s pretty much MW2 with a bit more spit and polish. The singleplayer is crazy short (once again), I completed it in 4hr 35 minutes, however it is good fun.

    Special Ops is an improvement, but I still feel disappointed by it. Only two players! That really sucks.

    If you are looking for more of the same, then this is for you, but as for me I’m going back to BF3.
