Vandal Online (Dec 01, 2011)
Con todo, nos atrevemos a decir que Modern Warfare 3 es el mejor en su categoría dentro del no tan extenso catálogo de Wii, donde realmente ha habido pocos juegos de acción en primera persona excelentes. Reconocemos que Black Ops nos gustó más en su campaña por las situaciones que proponía y porque su narrativa nos pareció más fácil de entender, pero creemos que este juego es mejor por el juego online, sin duda mejor implementado y que pasa a convertirse en la mejor opción del catálogo de Wii si queremos pegarnos tiros contra todo el mundo. Es una gran pena que se haya quedado fuera la posibilidad de jugar a 4 jugadores con pantalla partida, algo que popularizó nuevamente Goldeneye 007 en esta plataforma, pero como es algo que prácticamente se ha convertido en un triste estándar de esta generación en el género, tampoco lo penalizaremos. Ojalá los juegos que nos lleguen el día de mañana para Wii mantengan este listón de calidad.

If you’re a fan of Wii shooters, this game is a must. The one issue is with the online multiplayer – when it all flows well it’s very good, but when it doesn’t it can be very frustrating!

Modern Warfare 3 doesn't blaze much new ground and Call of Duty players will feel instantly at home with the game's heavily scripted machinations, so those wishing to see the series deviate from the norm are in for disappointment — and while there may be a twinge of fatigue setting in to the formula, Infinity Ward still outpaces the competition with a smartly updated, still addictive multiplayer and roller coaster campaign that are both fun while they last, but there's little sense that this isn't just more Call of Duty. 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.
Wii-Besitzer müssen online mit nur zehn Spielern, gelegentlichen Lags und anderen kleinen Problemen leben. Davon abgesehen sorgen die flotten Matches und freischaltbaren Extras auch hier für Motivation. Die Kampagne verliert aber durch die hässliche, massiv abgespeckte Grafik stark an Faszination.

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.
The Wii's was always going to be the poorest version of Modern Warfare 3, if only because of Infinity Ward's preoccupation with visual excellence. The effort they shovelled into volumetric 5.1 explosions, high-dynamic range moustaches and raytraced machismo is lost on Wii, and instead, in its place, the lack of a truly involving, quality first-person shooter experience bobs embarrassingly to the surface. 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.

Une fois encore, on se demande pourquoi s'évertuer à réaliser des portages forcément light de Call of Duty sur une machine qui ne peut pas bien retranscrire la dimension épique de ses affrontements. Attention, le jeu est loin de la catastrophe, car sa campagne reste très jouable. Hélas, si le multi est doté d'un excellent potentiel, il s'avère pour l'heure totalement impraticable à cause du lag. Au final, cette version de Modern Warfare 3 ravira certainement ceux qui cherchent des FPS jouables sur Wii, mais elle devra encore faire ses preuves pour ce qui relève du online.

Still a substantial package - especially on the online-starved Wii - but messy with it. Try GoldenEye instead - it was built for Wii and is all the better for it.
IGN (Nov 15, 2011)
If the lower resolution and other graphical changes made to bring Modern Warfare 3 to the Wii had resulted in performance parity, this game could have been great. 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. Combine this with the frustrating connection issues that turn Call of Duty’s greatest component, its multiplayer, into an anger-inducing time, and you have a port that feels like a bastardization of a fantastic game. Wii owners deserve more.
