Modern Warfare 3 Gets a Stone Pelting in User Reviews

Even as millions of gamers are playing the newest Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 online, there are some who have trashed the game on a critic rating website.

According to Game Pro (opens in new tab), the users of user rating website Metacritic have come down heavily on the record breaking game, giving it a user rating of 2.8 out of 10.

Even though the game has a Metascore of 90 out of 100 on the website, the user reviews on the website are not flattering.

Modern Warfare 3 was recently launched for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC platforms with Amazon claiming that it was the most pre-ordered game of all time, getting 32 percent more pre-orders than Black Ops, which held that record previously.

Black Ops generated record breaking revenue of $650 million in the first five days of going on sale but the new game is expected to break all the records for the number of units sold and the revenue.

Most of the 479 user reviews that Modern Warfare 3 received were negative, which some going as far as to claim that the franchise was dead.

"The funny thing is I had yet to realize this was the exact same game I've been playing for two years...[T]his franchise is scarred and beyond repair," one user wrote in his review.
