Fans Mistakenly Target Wrong Game with Negative Reviews
Fans of the popular Call of Duty series have expressed their dissatisfaction with the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III. However, in a case of mistaken identity, they have been directing their frustrations towards the wrong game by submitting negative reviews.
Twitter user Warzone Intel first noticed that fans had initiated a practice known as “review bombing” on the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which was released back in 2011. These recent low user reviews were all posted over the past weekend and were intended for the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, which shares the same name but is differentiated by the presentation.
The complaints outlined in these reviews vary, with some users describing the game as “underwhelming,” while others went as far as calling it “a slap in the face to Call of Duty fans.”
Modern Warfare III Criticized for Short Campaign
Criticism surrounding the soon-to-be-released game intensified when it was revealed that the campaign mode would be exceptionally short. Many players reported that it took them only 3-4 hours to complete the storyline.
While Call of Duty campaigns are not typically known for their length, with most taking approximately 8-10 hours to finish, the previous installment in the series, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, required around eight hours of gameplay to complete according to the tracking website HowLongToBeat.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III is set to officially launch on November 10, 2023.
