Modern Warfare 3 Wii – Review Round-Up

Vandal Online – 85
We dare to say that Modern Warfare 3 is the best FPS for the Wii, with few competitors. Although we prefer the campaign of Black Ops, this iteration improves a lot in the online mode, which is hands down the best in the platform. – 80
In terms of graphics and game modes, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is no doubt the best episode of the series ever made for Wii. The problem is the motion controls aren’t very accurate this time around, so you eventually have to play the game the traditional way, using a Classic Controller.

Meristation – 80
Though there’re a few glitches that doesn’t makes it the best shooter on Wii, Modern Warfare 3 stands as a well-made adaptation for those who are willing to have a taste on Infinity Ward’s latest blockbuster.

Nintendo Life – 80
Treyarch’s technical prowess gained from bringing Call of Duty games on the platform shines through and through for the best-looking one on Wii yet. It’s not exactly on par with the HD versions concerning fidelity or features, but considering the difference in horsepower MW3 on Wii is undeniably impressive. MW3 may not make you rethink the Call of Duty series, but it’ll certainly satisfy its army of fans. – 80
Moder Warfare 3 is the old same Call of Duty…Thankfully. Half movie, half game, the brand entertains the player as few other fps can do.

SpazioGames – 75
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 on Wii is a decent FPS, good enough to wait ’til Nintendo’s next generation console is out.

NintendoWorldReport – 75
Modern Warfare 3 on Wii won’t ever astound with its graphics or win over anyone already intent on playing it on another console. It is by no means the definitive version. Despite its various limitations, however, it is a solid approximation of the kind of content that continues to deliver year after year, even if the ride is getting a little predictable.

3DJuegos – 71
A port that doesn’t have the same dedication than past Treyarch’s games for Wii, but which is still a good option to enjoy Modern Warfare 3 if you haven’t any other console.

Official Nintendo Magazine UK – 71
If the Wii version of Modern Warfare 3 is your only available option, what you get here is a bombastic, if braindead, accomplished shooter with online multiplayer options that stand above those of most other Wii titles. Modern Warfare 3 Wii is an undeniable guilty pleasure both online and off.

Destructoid – 65
Yes, you have to put up with missing Spec Ops missions, a lack of refinement in the online modes for now (add a point onto the final score should the lag issues be properly fixed), and some textures that look like they might have been drawn in Paint. On the other hand, you gain the thrilling speed and fluidity of pointer-based aiming (PlayStation owners ought to start petitioning Activision ASAP for Move integration in the next patch) and a slightly different, possibly better balanced, version of the acclaimed online multiplayer modes.

IGN – 45
Visuals aren’t everything, but when the graphics make it hard to pick out targets or they make the game perform poorly when it was designed to run super-silky, they become problematic. Imagine a Michael Bay movie without the explosions? It wouldn’t be exciting, and neither are the major moments in the MW3 Wii campaign.

    I feel safe in saying that this game without splitscreen multiplayer is a ripoff, and that’s exactly what the Wii version is. Some people will say that splitscreen shooters would be hard to play on the Wii – I say that any problems with IR splitscreen could be easily remedied by limiting local multiplayer to the GCN and classic controllers… the first of which isn’t even supported by the game :/

    I agree with the targets being hard to see. and the fact that theres the campaign then thats a wrap ,unless you have it hooked up to the net. should be some other playing options,
