Here's Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare! On The Wii!

It is all Modern Warfare all the time around here this week.

If for no other reason than to spray something Modern Warfare-related across every inch of our website here, I will now share with you the box art and screenshots from the Call of Duty 4 port to the Wii, Reflex Edition.















Better late than never, no? Any interest in trying this thing out? The shots don't look half bad, honestly.

Still, it kinda looks like Treyarch (or whoever makes CoD) isn't very good at porting games to the Wii. Everything looks too sharp.

huh that actually looks pretty good. i wonder how it will control
Posted by natetodamax

Looks pretty good visually for a Wii game.

Posted by phlegms

That doesnt look awful.

Edited by AjayRaz

doesn't look that bad, actually. i have no interest to play a inferior port of a great game, though.  
all this Modern Warfare coverage is orgasmic

there is multi player. look at some of the shots, you can see MP scores and radar. 
Edited by MarkWahlberg

brings back memories, at least. And why reflex? is it 'light gun'?

Look at the first screenshot.

i remember when some people geniunely thought that WII would be the most powerful new console

@cstrang: Even without playing it I can tell you that the WIFI logo at the top means its got multiplayer.

Graphics looks good, might be good as an online shooter for Wii, but then again, the people who would want to play FPS games online probably own more then just a Wii

Enough of Call of Duty. I'm tired of hearing about it.

Wow looks pretty cool. Hopefully it be like RE4 wii , the same but with insta wii pointer  head shots and extra's.

it's a shame the gore was toned down for the Wii. it would be awesome blowing up Japanese infantry to pieces with the Wiimote.

I'll be getting this. WaW for Wii was great both online and off. I hope this delivers.

Treyarch makes imitation Call of Duty, Infinity Ward makes the real deal.

looks better playing on my netbook

Posted by Knives

Looks like low res CoD4 minus a few minor details. I might check this out eventually if it ever gets to $20ish.

Posted by Claude

From Kotaku. DigitalFoundry. I'm interested. We'll see. I like the comparisons, same game, but I can see the pleasure.

Posted by Airconditioner

Anybody else notice that there isn't a 4 at the end of the title?

Posted by Akeldama

cant wait to see the MP fail massively 

Posted by BradTheWar

I have been playing it tonight and it looks like a freaking n64 game on my lcd. 
 
im pretty sure that perfect dark looks better. 

Posted by Apathylad

I'm hoping there's a QuickLook.

Posted by Crushed

Eh, for the Wii it's pretty good. I've seen some videos, and considering all the stuff going on during multi and single player, it's what you'd expect from a high-end multiplayer shooter on that generation of hardware.

Not buying it since I played hours of COD4 on my PC, but it's nice that Wii-only owners will finally get a chance to find out what the big deal is with Modern Warfare.

Edited by BradTheWar

i picked it up because i wanted to play the two cods back to back and wanted something different playing cod mw again. 
 
its pretty fun so far and easy to blast people in the face. 
 
Indeed there is multiplayer, same interface as the ps3 / 360 ver. 
 
However it does use friend codes and you can have a friends list.

This looks pretty good.
 
I played some Call of Duty World at War on the Wii, and that was a solid title that looked and played great for the platform.  People talk a lot of smack about Treyarch but they tend to do a great job with what they're given.

Posted by Coombs
@Rirse: so stop reading posts titled "Call of Duty..."
Posted by AllanIceman

I think I need a bit more Call of Duty on GB just to make sure.

People just jumped on the bandwagon for hating on Treyarch because they put out "another WWII shooter" after IW had done Modern Warfare.  
I will gladly admit that I've played waay more World at War online (PS3) than I played Modern Warfare. 
Especially Nazi Zombies. 
Posted by jakob187

So the graphics aren't super-powered 360 and PS3 graphics?!  SHOCKING! 
 
Seriously, as long as the game plays well and the frame rate is solid, then what the fuck does it matter about the graphics?

They're using the same system that WaW used, so it won't.

You dare insult CoD3?
 
*Takes out rapier*
 
On your guard, naive!
Posted by DrX25

So, did they add some Duran Duran?

Posted by Brackynews

I'm cool with it. Might give it a rent. Mildly disappointed they didn't change the name to Modern Wiifare, but whatevs.

Edited by Willy105

Well, if your PC can't run CoD4, and you can't stand dual analog controls, this is the best one to get.
 
Otherwise, the PC version is just fine. There are better Wii FPS out there.

It was Infinity Ward's idea that only Call of Duties they make will have a numbered title. They are powerful enough for Activision to listen to them. CoD3 was an exception, but Infinity Ward, being what they are, always refers to Call of Duty 4 when they talk about "Call of Duty 3". They also "asked" for Treyarch to take their logo of this game, which caused a small scandal last week.

WaW had functioning MP...?

The rabbid Wii haters are out in force I see.
 
Love the game, not the console, and honestly, if you're a true fan of Modern Warfare, you should want as many people to experience that, even if it's on the Wii.  Other than the lesser graphics, this version comes with all the same single and multiplayer features of its big brothers on the PC/PS3/360.
 
I would much rather see this sell well on the Wii than Carnival Games 3 or whatever.

Posted by PhaggyBigNastyMcKill

Please quick look this.

Posted by Cook66

Looks like a fairly good PS2 game. Not bad at all for that white brick I guess.
 
I'm interested in how it controls though. I doubt that will be anywhere close to a fairly good PS2 game.

Posted by Ockman

I'd really like to see a QL  of this from you guys, just because I'm curious how it looks and plays for a Wii title. From what I know, it's got all of Call of Duty 4 in there, which isn't a bad thing at all really, and for Wii only owners, it's a GREAT thing. I own all 3 current gen systems, but just for the sake of curiousity, I really wanna see how this one stacks up, and if Wii owners should be happy.

Posted by Kowbrainz

Maybe now I won't feel guilty for convincing my friend into buying a Wii so long ago when there weren't any decent shooters coming out on it for him and he didn't have the cash for a 360 or PS3...

Posted by joelalfaro

That looks amazing.

Posted by bigsmoke77

Probably still won't sell any copies cause wii is cool like that!

If you think this is good for the Wii, you may want to pay more attention.

 There is no Carnival Games 3. There was only Carnival Games, and then Carnival Games Mini Golf, which flopped.

I don't get why people automatically want Wii games to fail. I've had a lot of fun with the Wii... it's my console of choice if people are over and want to have a few laughs. What's wrong with liking more than one console, even one that doesn't have the same horsepower of the other current-gen consoles?

Posted by Sudbuster

It doesn't look bad at all. I haven't really tried out any FPS's on the Wii yet. I might give this a rental since I already own this on PC.
