Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
11 September 2012
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.
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.
Excerpt: Ah tennis, the game of the gods, a rip-roaring, white knuckle contest of skill and true grit. Well okay not really, but just how do you make tennis games interesting after so many different takes on the sport? You start by taking the best bits of other games at the moment and cramming them into one nice package. For starters, short games leave gamers feeling underwhelmed and quite frankly, ripped off.
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.
Summary: I think Infinity Ward have achieved what they set out to do with this game. It improves the overall experience, with more content and tweaks the multi player in a way to keep it interesting to series veterans and give newbies at least a fighting chance. Spec Ops is a genuinely brilliant addition that adds hours to the game. The single player experience is brilliant and in many ways better than the first game, but in other ways it doesn't quite achieve the impact.
Conclusion: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a truly superb game. The singleplayer mode will make for a fine shock-and-awe moment for your non-gamer friends, the Spec Ops co-op will have you playing with your best buds for weekends on end and the multiplayer will be exactly what you’ll be booting up every night for the next eight months. A must buy.
