Have yet to check it out, here's hoping I'm pleasantly surprised. 
 
Have to admit, I did really enjoy MW2's signature brand of crazy and this does seem like an extension of that. Then again, the fact that Sledgehammer are involved does worry me somewhat - suggests a struggling IW incapable of dealing with another full game. Then again, Ubi often get multiple teams on things so I could be wrong...

I skimmed through it, but basically it just said "yea it's more CoD". I didn't see any mention of anything new in there.

Pretty much.  
 
They'd mentioned use of a new engine before but, judging by the screens and what they've described, I think it's still based on the old ID tech stuff. Probably heavily retooled at best though. 
 
The submarine screenshot they uploaded looks eerily similar to a certain MW2 scene though... Hoping they're not rehashing things to too great an extent.

That Kotaku leak told me everything I need to know and I hate how game media is acting like it never happened. Everyone can know everything about this game by looking at Kotaku, there's no point having extensive previews about it or "oooooooh what's going to happen in MW3's singleplayer?" articles since it's already out there. They should take it head on and give opinions.

MW2 was not as good of a singleplayer game as almost all of its predecessors in my opinion, but it was still pretty damn entertaining, and MW3 will be too because all it has to do is follow the formula that makes call of duty games fun and exciting.
