Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Impressions

So when the biggest publisher in the world says they're going to show you the hotly anticipated follow up to the biggest franchise in the world, you're not really bothering to ask which developer is behind which part of the game you're about to see. Activision wasn't offering that information up anyways.
So you and your fellow brothers in arms are on the way to Wall Street and the Stock Exchange Building where Russians have installed a communications interrupter. In this section of the game the player takes control of Sandman, a member of Delta Squad, joined by Grinch and Grizzly. With a confirmed Co-Op campaign in the game, we're left to guess which character player 2 will control.
The demo had a gun equipped with both a red dot site and a scope. While the scope is not in use it can be flipped away, not unlike the heartbeat sensor in Modern Warfare 2's Cliffhange mission. A second new item was introduced immediately in the demo's opening battles: a flashbang that splits into nine parts before detonating... a "nine bang." Count on Call of Duty to take the future seriously.
The demo took the player to the roof of the Stock Exchange building where a Reaper Drone helps mop up some enemies. The player plants explosives on the Russian tower before sweeping being swept off to a New York harbor byway of Helicopter. That happy trip is interrupted by another helicopter, this one controlled by the Russian invaders. Using skyscrapers as cover the two choppers hunt each other in the battered New York City skyline.
While the other helicopter eventually succumbs to the player's fire, it doesn't without creating an opening for an enemy rocket to hit the aircraft you're riding in. The roller coaster ride Call of Duty is known for is still present in Modern Warfare 3, in this instance chucking the player's helicopter to the ground, scraping a building before the pilot recaptures control of the aircraft.
