single player

It’s been nine long years since gamers took control of former New York City detective Max Payne and solved the murder of his wife and child. Besides the awful live-action adaptation starring Mark Wahlberg, nobody has heard from Max until Rockstar Games recent revival of the fallen hero with the release of Max Payne 3. Could the company recapture the fire that the Max Payne franchise once had?

That’s what we here at Nerd Bastards wanted to find out. So we picked up a copy, jammed it in our magic gaming boxes and played for several straight hours in both single player and multiplayer campaigns. Let’s get to the results shall we:

World war 3 has been unleashed…and it looks bloody awesome.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, or COD:MW3, is the latest edition to the first person shooter franchise developed by Infinity Ward, and is a direct sequel to 2009’s best selling Modern Warfare 2. With less then a month left what better then to hype the game with an action packed single player trailer.

Titled “Redemption”, this trailer shows off more of MW3’s single player storyline, with all of it’s explosions and eye popping visuals. People are already sold on the mulitplayer so why not show the people what makes the single player so strong.
