Modern Warfare 2 (Xbox 360)
4 July 2013
Excerpt: Published by Infinity Ward Developed by Activision ESRB Rating: M Reviewed on XBox360 Available On: Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PC Genre: FPS (First-Person Shooter) Number of Players: 1 Strong Points: Excellent graphics and realism. Weak Points: Story mode is linear with no decision points; Not very different from previous titles.
Conclusion: All in all Modern Warfare 2 is a major upgrade to the original. The improve game engine helps create immersive environments that do a great job of mirroring what the actual locals would look and feel like. The sound design is boosted greatly by the music and sounds help ratchet up the action and intensity. You are on edge during all the firefights and even in between. This coupled with the graphics make Modern Warfare 2 the best first person shooter out.
Excerpt: It’s pretty sad that when a game as hugely anticipated and as well made as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 comes along, that any controversial elements are going to overshadow the game itself, particularly in the non-gaming media. You see, you may have heard of a particular portion (you can skip it if you wish) of the game, which may be a plot device, though it feels wholly unnecessary and certainly wasn’t needed to garner interest in what is the biggest game of 2009.
Excerpt: I felt like I needed a rest after I finished the single-player campaign in Modern Warfare 2. Such was the onslaught of in-your-face gameplay, explosive set-pieces and "OMG" plot twists that I was mentally exhausted. It was hard to process what I'd just played through. The campaign more or less follows the formula set out by Infinity Ward in its previous two games (CoD2 and CoD4), but it's one hell of a ride.
Mature shooter with controversial terrorist mission.

Summary: Parents need to know that, while not over-the-top in the gore department, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a modern-day military shooter that realistically and graphically shows violence and blood. Much of the game involves traveling to different areas of the world to take down baddies with an assortment of weapons, all played from a first-person perspective. One of the locations is Washington D.C., which is shown as being under attack by Russian troops.
Conclusion: Didn't see any zombies- but Infinity Ward probably doesn't need the gimmick to make this game interesting. I shot up a few dudes and played around with the streaks- but this isn't something I'm going to get too wrapped up in. Yes, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a slick looking, exciting game that does lots of things well. It is the best shooter on the Xbox 360 and comes highly recommended.
Excerpt: In November, 2007, a new juggernaut entered the gaming world of FPS shooters. The newest installment of the Call of Duty series, introduced by Infinity Ward, moved from the too-familiar confines of World War II and into a fictitious near-future conflict based on real-world potentials, making use of modern-day weaponry. Appropriately named Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare , the effects were immediate.
