SoftSailor: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Review

SoftSailor: With the first Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game being commonly regarded as the best shooter up to this date, it is only logical that fans around the world have only the highest expectations from this game. Did Infinity Ward please its fans? Read on as we will talk about various aspects of Modern Warfare 2in this Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 short review.

I want to start this Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 review by saying that I am very happy to find that the story behind a game has not been totally forgotten. Almost all games nowadays just leave out this aspect and focus on graphics and other bling-blings. Modern Warfare 2 is not one of these games.

"Modern Warfare 2 is too short in singleplayer" and has "great-ish graphics" - then its not worth the hight price tag imo and people r gettin suckered in2 the brand name.

Im only interested in the single player campaign thats y i shall rent it, ill play online 4 about 2 weeks and get bored of it

Natsu X FairyTail3323d ago

damn. Online is what makes COD good.

Too bad for you.

velcry3321d ago

If anyone who plays MW2 will think that, hey, I preferred COD4, and stay in the COD4 online community instead.

As with all sequels, I think most of the COD4 and COD5 players will be glad to upgrade to MW2. But there will always be this portion of players who will stick to the original after they find that they don't like MW2.

Wonder how many players the COD4 community will have soon.

Mindboggle3321d ago

Another stupid argument about graphics. Ok the game doesnt have Uncharted 2 level graphics, but the game is fun fun fun!!! It doesnt need amazing graphics, and no reviewer will mark the score down because of this.

And noone is getting suckered in. COD has been the same since COD1 and it continues to sell more copies than any other game out there, so people like it.

Anti-Fanboyer3321d ago

Funny thing is Bad Company 2 looks a tons times better in all multiplayer aspects yet... it's $50! This game doesn't justify its $60 price, Activision can go f*ck themselves.

Mindboggle3321d ago

Well what makes me laugh is in the UK MW2 is being sold for £26 in places. Thats like $40.

MW2 in time will sell 10 million, and i bet bad company wont even hit 1.5 million...

Anti-Fanboyer3321d ago (Edited 3321d ago )

1.5 million? That's funny, it took 2 weeks for Battlefield Bad Company 1 to get 1.7 million on consoles exclusively. It took 1 week for Battlefield 2 to get 1.2 million and that one was a PC exclusive. Bad Company 2 is the first time a Battlefield game will be released simultaneously on PC and Consoles. Combine those two audiences, and I can guarantee it will surpass your 1.5 million estimate? 10 million? Well ... it's been 2 years and COD4 hasn't even passed 9 million yet, lets see what MW2 can achieve.

Jamegohanssj53321d ago (Edited 3321d ago )

Mind, you're still taking up for the game that everyone knows should have been released as DLC for 20 bucks? Just get over it. MW2 is just living off of it's name and hype. Same could be said for Gears of War 2.


Mindboggle3321d ago

No...Call of duty WAW should of been dlc.

Its amazing how everybody is talking crap about MW2 when only a few people have played it. And whats even more amazing is how everyone is talking about Bad company 2 when NOONE has played it.

Lets just wait and see what the bad company beta is like first. We all know what MW2 is like and its already a proven good game.

I got my beta code from best buy earlier so im set, so lets just see what the fuss is about.

I also like how everyone was talking about MAG until the beta came out. Everyone then realised it was nothing special and youve all moved on to the next FPS to claim is better than MW2.

Hockey113321d ago

I don't understand why people are trying to bring down modern warfare 2 by saying BFBC2 is better. They are both amazing.

Ghostsmoker3321d ago (Edited 3321d ago )

I don't understand the people who talk bad about MW2 too. It has been such an amazing gaming experience since the first part. Still such a high quality game ... it looks good and plays so fine. It brings so much fun when you put the game in your console and play for hours. I would never blame Activison, not after so many great games. I simply don't get it why people constantly bash one of the best FPS franchise ever made.

The_Denzel3320d ago

@ Natsu

Online is what makes CoD good. So just stick with CoD4:MW..
MW2 will sell, that's a fact. Is it worth it? In my opinion; not at all.

Hellsvacancy3320d ago

Jesus, i cant believe my post has got this high i posted it 3days ago and completely 4got about it :-)

SL1M DADDY3320d ago (Edited 3320d ago )

Don't kid yourself. BF:BC sold a total of 1.9 million copies so far so your dream of them selling almost 1.5 million of those copies in a week or so is a dream at best. Modern Warfare 2 will completely obliterate BF:BC2 in sales and in online community. Mark my words and enjoy your BF games.

And to correct you on copies sold for COD4, it is currently at 13 million going on 14.

the bad company beta is going to be worth more money then this

Mindboggle3321d ago

Well considering Bad company bombed hard with hardly anyone playing it on any platform i dont know what gives you the right to say that.

foxtheory3321d ago

because the gameplay from the beta looks better than anything MW2 has shown. Oh, and because it's his opinion, too.

vickers5003321d ago

"3.2 - He has the right to say that
because the gameplay from the beta looks better than anything MW2 has shown. Oh, and because it's his opinion, too."

Hypocritical much? You say that it looks better as if you are speaking factually, but then go on to say that it is his opinion. Maybe you should look up the definition of an opinion, I don't think you know what it means.

kraze073320d ago

Fanyboys, always feeling the need to justify why one game is better than another. Why can't you just enjoy both of them or enjoy the one you'll get and not talk bad about the one you won't get.

Looking forward to torrenting this come Tuesday.

Activision/Inifity Ward can suck my d!ck :)

Mindboggle3321d ago

I dont blame you for torrenting it, but then again you wont get online so yeh...

DEADEND3321d ago

If I had a PC to play it on I would pirate it too but unfortunately I'm picking it up on the PS3. My friend already beat it on the 360 a week ago(he has a modded 360 lol). All I have to say is that more power to you IW and Activision has really messed up a good thing with this game just because they know the majority of people will buy it anyway no matter what they do with the franchise.

kesvalk3320d ago

online? what online?

i don't see online in this game...

GR8 13322d ago

I have this game and it has great story, great gameplay and missions, the spec-ops is better then horde mode and firefight and the multi-player is another phenomenon just like COD4, everyone will be playing it.

Sunny_D3321d ago

Everyone except me. Well, there is always the way buying it used.

Nitrowolf23321d ago

me 2, at least for now im waiting for it to be used or get it for christmas. Funny thing is i think assassin creed came out during MW1 and i decided to get MW1 first, well this time im getting AC2 first
