Personally, going back on all the previous CoD games, I have been way too hyped for the game, always thinking OMG this is gonna be the best game ever!

Anyway thats a debate I'm not getting into, there's enough fanboy posts on here already about what game is better blah blah blah... What I want to know is what's your play style on a big release such as this?

In the past I have always tended to do a Campaign playthrough straight away on Normal / Hardened to get a feel for the game overal, get to know the maps in general etc etc. Once done its off to MP with friends :woop:to start the long road ahead to get to 10th Prestige or whatever the highest Prestige is this year.

I guess then I mix it up between running back through the campaign on Veteran for the cheevos and also Spec Ops etc etc.

But with all the new game modes added this year I wonder if that will influence anyone's decision on what order the explore the entire game?

Roll on Release date though!

I play MP first cause that's what I play the most. It helps me get back into playing online. I'll also play MW2 a lot before MW3 finally comes out. After I rank up in MP I'll then play the campaign on normal once and then go for veteran.

MP ofc then SP maybe Specops later to get 1000 GS

09-26-2011, 05:31 PM
Prolly MP. Get the jump on my friends.

09-26-2011, 06:58 PM
I'll play through the campaign and then either jump into MP or Spec Ops with my friends.

09-26-2011, 07:08 PM
Campaign first, because I think it helps in getting a feel for the different guns and because there will probably be server issues the first few days.

09-26-2011, 07:36 PM
I'm going through all the missions to get used to the game

09-26-2011, 07:44 PM
Same as every Call of Duty Game: Get it at midnight, be home by 12:30, install to HDD (takes about -5 minutes) and then load up single player. I will beat it that night and then enjoy some multiplayer and tanking up until I decide to play Survivor or Spec Ops.

09-26-2011, 08:13 PM
MP for the a few hours.. Then i finish the campaign on Vet when i get off work.. then depending on if i wanna sit on my ass any longer, ill go play MP.

Spec Ops will be saved for a little while after ive had ample time with MP.

09-26-2011, 08:43 PM
Im going in MP to own little kids with AC130s because nobody will know how to take them down until day 2~3.

ps dont steel my idea. ;)

IF I even get this it'll be campagain first for sure.

09-27-2011, 12:06 AM
MP the day I get it, then the next morning the first mission or so of campaign until my friends get online then more MP.

09-27-2011, 02:50 AM
I most likely will play campaign first and most likely to play on vet like i did for CoD 4, MW2 and Black Ops.

09-27-2011, 03:54 AM
Single player on vetaran. Usually try and get that out of the way so i can focus all attention to the Mp, and not have to worry about Veteran. Did the same for mw2, cod4, blacks ops, and..world..at..war..lol

09-27-2011, 09:13 AM
Single player on Hardened and after completing that, some MP. :)

09-27-2011, 11:21 AM
Probably waiting for my game to not be delivered again,
Well the the p.o. hang onto it for not reason what so ever after release .
Then ill open the 27 layers of plastic ,then ill play some campaign on vet..

Taken and re-sold as my idea :p

09-29-2011, 06:02 PM
Play single player through, then go back to get any remaining achievements, play survivor/spec-ops/splitscreen, then go through veteran when I feel like it, and occasionally play multiplayer if I get bored.

09-29-2011, 06:29 PM
i will probably do MP until i get a bit bored then do campain mode then back to MP then spec ops

10-01-2011, 08:21 AM
single player and coop first. just to get the achievements out of my way.

10-01-2011, 09:43 AM
In a rare-form for me.. I think I will be playing MP upon release for the first time ever! Something about this game just screams "PLAY ONLINE" before anything else to me!

10-01-2011, 09:49 AM
Im going to do what i always do when i get these games. Beat on vetern and get 1000G and im DONE!!!:woop::woop:

10-01-2011, 10:38 AM
Gonna play the singleplayer, then spec ops then sell the game :)

A couple of levels of Campaign on Normal, just like I do with every other game.

10-01-2011, 06:51 PM
Here's my plan of action:

Campaign on Veteran, probably will take 1-2 days.
Campaign again on Recruit to miss what I didn't get the first time through.
Spec-Ops solo, until I need help.
Finish Spec-Ops and any other small achievements.
Get all the intel as my last two for the 1K.
Play MP. :p

10-01-2011, 11:38 PM
My clan and I are going to hop on MP private matches for a few hours, to get the feel of the maps, weapons and what not, then go into MP knowing the maps a bit and destroy all the campers. Thats day 1.

Day 2, I'll be kicking the family out of the living room for a few hours why I dive into the campaign. I'm really hooked into the story...Russia taking over and starting a war on our soil?? Awesome!

10-02-2011, 02:11 AM
Will play campaign for a bit, then jump right into MP.

10-02-2011, 06:08 AM
I'm just gonna run through the campaign. I don't plan on playing any multiplayer unless there's achievements for it.

10-02-2011, 10:20 PM
For me it will be Complete the whole of single player, proberly in one night, then go online for a bit. Then the next time il go on the game il crack on with spec ops. :P

10-03-2011, 01:08 PM
I used to be all about the Campaign and all, but now that I'm 700 miles away from my friends back home, as soon as they hop online, we're hitting up multi-player like crazy. Spent so much time playing MW2 Hardcore HQ and S&D with them, gotta keep the ball rollin'! Multi-player it is.

Rather like MW2, I do a few missions of single player first just because.

10-03-2011, 07:43 PM
Well with MW2 I played the campaign from beginning to end, but unforunately, I won't have the luxury of having the day off this time around.

I will get home and start playing at about 8pm - 12pm probably on the MP. Then I think I'm off on the following Thursday, so will spend that completing the campaign!

10-03-2011, 08:51 PM
Multiplayer first for me only for a couple of hours then ill be jumping on the campaign.

10-04-2011, 02:03 AM
i'm gonna jump into multiplayer, prestige, then campaign on veteran

10-09-2011, 09:46 AM
Just like every CoD before, I will be hitting top rank, then campaign on normal.

JuSt BLaZe
10-09-2011, 10:23 PM
I'll probably check every mode for like 5-10 minutes and then get stuck with either MP/SPEC OPS SURVIAL or CAMPAIGN.

10-10-2011, 09:09 PM
Its funny because like you I NEVER start on MP...but since I was such a diehard MP player in Black Ops, I will start for the first time on MP this year, then make my way to the campaign. I want as much of a jump start as possible before my buddies pick it up. lol

10-10-2011, 09:47 PM
Most likely get it at midnight, and jump on the MP for a couple of hours. Then I'll sleep, and after work the next day, I'll start on the campaign.

10-11-2011, 03:50 AM
the wifes away then so am just gonna be starfishing all day in bed............

10-11-2011, 06:16 AM
Beat it on Veteran, then hit some spec ops, then hit some MP, then come back to spec ops. all while ignoring all the invites from my friends!!!

10-11-2011, 06:31 AM
Yeah same thing for me i always play the campaign (i dont care what anybody says the campaign is the best part of call of duty every year) to see atleast what kind of maps and guns are in the game so i can get a feel for it. Then off to search and destroy with friends then when i get bored playing that survival mode with my buddies.

MP just like every other CoD. Not the biggest campaign fan but most likely will play this one.

10-12-2011, 02:46 AM
Well, I'm just getting the game to say I have it. Campaign to answer the question, I'm not touching the multiplayer.

10-13-2011, 04:39 PM
playing at least one game of live then starting campaign because it looks amazing based on the trailer
