A quality title, but with some deficiencies 0

   it doesn't get more bad-ass than this. As prolific as the Call of Duty games have been, the Modern Warfare adjunct has been nothing but quality work. The sequel to the overwhelmingly successful first game is certainly no slouch either. But as impressive as it is, at times Modern Warfare 2 underwhelms with familiar story-telling elements and a near nonsensical plot. Of course, if multiplayer is your deal than this won’t affect you much.If you’ve played Modern Warfare at all, as millions c...

Campaign and story short review 0

MW2 lacks the consistency, gravitas and impact of COD4’s campaign.  It’s the blockbuster sequel to a modern classic: full on flash, low on substance.  The plot is interesting and has some neat twists, but the campaign is too short (around 5 hours on normal, 5-10 on veteran) to do it justice: too much of the story is left to player extrapolation, important information is said in passing and there are lapses in logic and plot holes aplenty.   Fortunately, the game propels you forward on pure adren...

Fun That You will be coming back for again and again. 0

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is game that I have a blast playing.There are 3 Game mode in Cod2 and all of them offer a great amount of Value for your money.  The Single Player Campaign was a fun Action pack Fps that you usually looking for , but more with the good voice acting and variety of stage to play on which is just the blast.The story does get confusing mid way through the game , but the Intense Fps kept me going for about 10  hours or so on Veteran(more if you collect intel like me).  T...

Over the top, in a good way 0

 Modern Warfare 2 takes all the strong elements of the original Modern Warfare and cranks it up to eleven. The quality gameplay is still there, but the story just goes over the top – in a good way. Any semblance to reality goes out the door in favour of jaw dropping sequences. This coupled with a really strong multiplayer element, including a co-op feature, makes it pretty clear why this game is so damn popular.    ...

Improved campaing that makes multiplayer suffer 0

 Before I continue with this review I must tell you that I give no game a 10/10 and my favorite games I rate a solid 8/10. Game that are ground breaking or just really unique get a 9/10 and above average (See my Killzone 2 review) get a 6/10, average is just that 5/10. I use the real review scale not some made up 7/10 is pure crap scale. Now on to the reviewIn a generation dominated by First Person Shooters, Modern Warfare was the “king” of them. I played that game and thought it was rath...

This is How a War Game Should Be 0

Infinity Ward developed this addition to the Call of Duty series.  Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare successfully brought the series out of the WWII genre and was everything Call of Duty fans could have hoped for. The big question was, how could Infinity Ward top themselves? Not only does they top themselves but Modern Warfare 2 is easily one of the best war games ever made. The gameplay mechanics see some slight changes but overall everything looks very much the same.   First we have the single pl...

A Little To Far 0

Call of Duty 4 is one of my favorite shooter campaigns ever. The multi player was also really fun but didn't really keep me interested for to long.  Modern Warfare 2 picks up after the end of CoD4. The campaign follows a similar style and many people found it to go to far this time around and be to unrealistic. But I really enjoyed it. However i found the last chapter rather ridicules, going rogue and hunting down a man just didn't seem call of duty to me, and they really left to much open for a...

Exciting at first, Terrible in the End 0

I was very, very excited for this game when it was released, I even stood in a line, waited for three hours, got it, went home, played it for a month... then sold it. If you ask me it was interesting to begin with, a fun...ish multiplayer, but the single player was a failure, just an over the top action movie with the 'realistic' tag slapped on. My complaint isnt the realism issue, i could care less about how realistic a game is, I play Halo. But heres the thing: a good game is balanced.  Modern...

Best one ever. 0

Call of Duty is one of, if not the biggest shooters of all time (Though I prefer Halo more). Modern Warfare 2 was the first Call of Duty that I played, yes even before the first Modern Warfare. I was actually so engrossed in the story I couldn't stop playing. I will admit that the game isn't the best game ever, but for the Call of Duty series it is the greatest. I would love to see this story turned into a movie sometime soon....

Whole Lotta Fun. 0

One of the biggest game in video game history, Modern Warfare 2 has proven to be quite the titanic, and controversial games, we've seen in a while.  StoryModern Warfare 2, oddly enough, starts off were Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare left off. Set in a near-future world, the Ultra-nationalists seize control of Russia and declare Imran Zakhaev, whom you killed at the end of CoD4, a martyr, having a statue of him in the middle of Red Square. Meanwhile, Vladimir Makarov, one of Zakhaev's former stud...

Modern Warfare 2 0

  Possible the biggest release of 2009, the much awaited sequel to one of 2007's biggest seller, Modern Warfare 2 has already sold over 5 million copies in just the US and the UK. But is the game really worthy of all this fanfare? Let's first start with the story. STORY: The story starts off 5 years after the first Modern Warfare, with the Ultra Nationalist having gained power in Russia even with the effort of the United States Marines and the British SAS. The story is full of holes though qui...

Mind-Blowing. 0

Yes I think we all absolutely loved Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, well most of us anyway, and making a game better than that would be a downright amazing achievement. Crazily enough Infinity Ward has somehow managed to do this and more.  Sure Modern Warfare 2 seems a little over blown and incredibly gamey in points. And sure there are the inevitable glitches in the Multiplayer mode, but even with these, this game is the funnest experience I have had with an controller in my hands. The Multipla...

EXTREMELY Addictive 0

A lot of anticipation has lead up to this release and only on rare occasion like this does the hype end up to be justified.Picked up the game at midnight with my buddies and, without a doubt, during the first hour of playing did I have to say aloud that the game was justifiably PERFECT.Not only did Infinity Ward introduce some new jaw-dropping features like the earnable online airstrikes, but from the graphics to the engine mechanics, the game has proven to be second-to-none in providing fast-pa...

MW2 Review. 0

I had been waiting for months for this to hit my Xbox but I was still very skeptical about whether or not this would re-raise the bar for FPS' like CoD 4 did. This game rocks...... It is better than CoD 4 in almost every way.... Despite the fact the gameplay remains the same it feels very different as there are tons of changes that are very exciting when you see them first time. The graphics have been improved by a long way and tiny things such as the way glass breaks when you shoot it and thing...

Immersive, addictive, over-the-top action 0

  With its predecessor being arguably one of the best shooters in recent times, it was always safe to assume that : Modern Warfare 2 would generate a huge amount of pre-release hype. As well as the anticipation spilling over on internet forums there were petitions from PC users unhappy with the lack of server support, news coverage around the world when gameplay footage of the infamous airport level was leaked, Hollywood blockbuster-style premieres for the launch of the title and lines of fans...

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it" 0

 The expression "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" should have been the tagline to Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2. Let's be honest here. 2007's Call of Duty 4 was literally as far as any developer could possibly go to relight the dim candle of innovation in the first person shooter market. While it did the obvious thing by improving the cinematic quality of the gameplay and in-effect enhance the immersion of the campaign the multiplayer made the biggest change of all. Infinity Ward's in...

Value by numbers 0

I distinctly remember the very first time I played Call of Duty. I was sneaking through Normandy after an airdrop, I lit some beacon, an alarm went off and complete chaos erupted - first person shooter campaigns were never the same after that.   Modern Warfare 2 attempts to take that very moment and stretch it over the entirety of its 5 to 7 hour campaign. It's as if the developers had a mandate to ensure that at any given moment there should be as much going on visually an audibly as possible. ...
