Game Title: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Description: Although not horrible, I find CoD:MW3’s sound effects to be very lacklustre. A number of gunshots sound very bass-heavy, presumably to increase their impact, but in doing so sound totally unfitting to the actual gun. On the other hand some large explosions seem to lack the impact they should realistically have and instead almost become background noise, in some occasions even cutting each other off. The sound effects in general lack a real sense of presence; the environment in which the sound plays seems to have no influence on it. To top it off a good number of sound effects have seen little to no change since the first Modern Warfare game, which doesn’t help when they’re not too interesting to begin with.
