That's the most well rounded and enjoyable video review I've yet seen on Giantbomb. Great job Jeff, the explosion montage made me laugh!

I'd add an "Above and beyond the Call" joke here, but I haven't touched my copy of Battlefield 3 since the day after release.

MW3 looks damn gorgeous, but is this going to be the last "mammoth" Call of Duty game?

HOORAY

I'm glad lack of creativity has taken the stage, I want something new to take over.

Give me more assassin's creed style risk taking in games damn it. I new experiences!

For someone that is semi-interested in MW3, this video review is very informative and pretty funny. Great job Jeff and Drew.

Great editing and I mean great editing for this video review!

Also I think this review features the best use of Bad Boys 2 since well...ever. That's considering the fact that Bad Boys 2 doesn't know how to use what was good about Bad Boys 2 in the first place.

Awesome review. I'll stick to BF3 though, don't have time to try this.

I'm surprised he gave it a 4, he definitely seems to be way more critical of the game evidenced by the heavy amounts of sarcasm he uses. Game looks meh, played this 2 years ago.

"This is another Call of Duty game"... PUT IT ON THE BOX AND SHIP IT!

Loved the review, especially the explosion montage and that ending...

Not going to pick this one up myself. CoD has crossed the line of boredom for me and i'm happy with BF3.

Same old experience then, I disagree with Jeff on one point, I think they should have dramatically changed the formula up already. Been burnt to many times by Call of Duty now so will gladly skip this one. At least some of the changes in multiplayer actually sound interesting. But please Infinity Ward/Activision, as someone who played the hell out of the original Call of Duty on PC, please please develop a new graphics engine.

Just noticed MW3 is £39.99 on Steam... say what? Is this the average price for the PC version, if so Activision are going to be rolling in even more cash.

Goddamn, I love a "Shit just got real" reference. And I don't even give a shit about MW3 or whatever.

Not at all surprised they fell back to using on-rails shooting sequences after losing most of their creative team. They've just plain run out of ideas for this series, needs a fresh look desperately.

Also 7:11 dat car texture... yuck

After about 3 comment revisions of trying to put my thoughts into words, I decided "Fuck it", I'll be short.

I don't know if I enjoy MW multiplayer anymore, but I'm going to pick this up to finish out the story. 60 bucks may be a waste for a 5 hour campaign as that money can be better spent on virtually anything else but I'm going to do it and I hate myself for it.

Edit: I guess Gary Whitta did some script punch-up work at 5:28 :)

I kind of want this now to see the closure of the MW story... Great video review, also!

Nah dude, the part where that thing explodes is clearly from the first MW.

It seemed pretty obvious to me a few weeks ago that MW3 would get whatever score BF3 would get. Could you imagine the outrage if either one scored higher than the other?

That's would be horseshit journalism/reviewing and I like to think that that sort of thing doesn't happen at Giantbomb.

Best video review you guys have done. Very informative, professional, but also with the GB flair. I was laughing out loud at each BBII reference. The montages were great and the multiplayer footage got that blood flowing again. Well done Jeff, and the GB crew.
