The anticipation for the upcoming release of the next Call of Duty installment as well as its rival Battlefield 3, is growing stronger now as more details of both games become available. The guns which are to be found in Modern Warfare 3 are now known. Today we have an article looking at the MW3 Spec Ops mode and first impressions.
Despite the release of battlefield 3 Modern Warfare 3 looks set to continue the success the franchise has seen over recent years. Now the team over at T3.com has managed to get some hands on time with one of the new modes from MW3. We have given you details of the Survival mode from the new game before, but now we have someone else’s opinion of it.
The Spec Ops mode was on the Modern Warfare 2 which was a hit with the majority of the games fans. Now fast forward to the latest installment to see an expanded Spec Ops mode, which now has the Survival mode. Players find themselves dropped into a map with just a couple of weapons to start with, and trying to defend yourself from wave after wave of foes.
It’s all about team work with players working together to defend parts of the map, and restocking the ammo and weapons when there is any lull in attacks. Each wave of enemy gets more difficult as you progress, but you do get the chance to gain special attacks and deployable ordinance between enemy waves.
Money can be earned from each kill to purchase gun modifications, gun turrets, and AI reinforcements. Survival mode doesn’t end with wave after wave of enemies coming at you until you finally meet your death, but the challenge will be going further than you did last time.
The enemies become really hard by the eighth wave, and if you haven’t identified parts of the map that are important or upgraded weapons you will be in for an even tougher time. Earlier in the game there is much fun to be had, which turns into the realization that eventually you can’t win but will have you wanting to survive for as long as possible.
It may not be the most original game but this is more than made up with the fun and challenge the game brings. It does seem the developers have worked really hard with the latest installment of Call of Duty; some of this may be down to the games competition this time round. Personally I was thinking of not getting Call of Duty this year, which would have been the first one I would have missed.
I have already pre-ordered battlefield 3, which will be the first Battlefield game I have played. Now after seeing more details of Modern Warfare 3 I have decided to pre-order this as well. This will give me the opportunity to compare and enjoy both games in their own right.
Are you getting both games?
