I normally don't do this, but I congratulate you with an honest post.

Sorry, I don't buy that. Its largely a bunch of people that don't have the game and just spew mindless hate. Very similar to what happened with BF3 on Amazon (though that's slightly different since its about Origin and not the gameplay).

Obviously everything is the same. It's still the same game after all




/trolling

As long as they make money out of people (a whole lot of them), they will continue to do it. I just hope that DICE won't stoop down to InfWard's level in the future one day, just because they find it more profitable to literally re-release the game with minor additional contents.

The fact that people, many of which likely have not even played the game let alone had enough time to review it, would zero bomb the game bring down its user rating doesn't surprise me in the least.

This type of thing happens everywhere. Sports figures, celebrities, food chains, movies, whatever. One thing in particular becomes incredibly popular and well liked, and so many people are aware of its existence. Those who don't like it become extremely vocal and at times irrational (such as giving a game a 0 rating when let's be honest, there's probably a game or two out there these days more deserving of a zero than Call of Duty, to say the least) in order to get their point across.

IMO, the vocal minority (which even becomes the majority, in some cases) usually becomes so ridiculous that I find myself disagreeing with them in most instances even if I wasn't a very big fan of whatever topic is in discussion to begin with. Like in this case, I'm not a CoD fan at all, and I'd like to see some of my favorite games sell even a quarter of what CoD games sell, but I'm certainly not upset enough to give MW3 a ludicrously low score just to keep its rating down. I can't really see any legitimate reason to want do things like zero bomb the game or bash it every chance you get, other than maybe to "make a statement," but even then, becoming so obnoxious about it that nobody wants to listen any more probably isn't going to convert anyone who actually plays and enjoys the games.

Read the parenthesis after the quote you bolded. The person you replied to wasn't saying all user reviews don't count. He was specifically talking about users who give high profile games stupidly low scores just because some people only deal in extremes and would rather give a decent game a "0" than a "7" to show their absolutely massive distaste for it, even though nobody with any sense whatsoever would really think it deserves the lowest score possible.

What I don't understand is how can it take 1 freekin full year to release this crap, should take just a few months for the average modding team... what's new the sounds and fancy case? not even that probably lol

Simple explanation
tru.

The storyline is the only main selling point for me.

Because they can sell a ton of dlc and map packs in a year.

To clarify, I mean mw2/blops map packs, not the mw3 map pack.

Sur[rising how some of the reviewers say the story is worst than BF3. lol
People said COD for SP and BF for MP. Looks like BF3 for both.
