I have purchased only two Call of Duty titles before this. Both were very fun, however I have changed my mind on this one. It was entertaining for about one weekend before I realized that I died too much if I really wanted to go out there, and I got no kills if I didn't go online and memorize different maps. I never play any story modes, so I get all games for online only. Their is no SWAT shield, and I know it didn't exist back in the Cold War, but I loved having that as a shield for my back in MW2. Maybe MW3 will change my feelings towards the once great CoD Franchise
