Yahoo review Modern Warfare 2

Yahoo: When Infinity Ward moved their flagship first person shooter title, Call of Duty, from its traditional World War II setting to more contemporary battlefields, they not only rebooted the series but also the entire genre. Stylish and inventive in equal parts, Modern Warfare captured and exaggerated the fire and bombast of modern warfare in an irresistible way. For this, undoubtedly the most widely anticipated sequel of the year, the developer has primarily built upon the first game's successes rather than attempting to reinvent them, a wise decision that pays off handsomely. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Culture, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 5/5

I haven't been all that excited for this game over the last while. I know it's going to be great. I'd be lying though if I said I wasn't comtemplating running down to buy it as soon as. Gotta admit seeing all my friends getting excited and planning mad sessions of it, really makes me want to be a part of it too.

You should get it especially if you liked COD4. I got the game on Sunday and have been playing it online obsessively.
monkey602  +   1756d ago
I loved COD4, Hated W@W though. Worst of all I'm extremely fed up of the military FPS genre but the game looks good and as I said I really want to be able to have fun on it with my friends. At the end of it all that is what gaming is about, not these BS politics going on lately

5/5 i smell a payed-for review.
BaSeBaLlKiD721  +   1756d ago
oh damn... Why did I get 5 disagrees for showing my interest with the game? Am I not allowed to have fun with the game?

and by the way Killzone 2 still is my #1 FPS this generation

@ monkey
That's exactly the reason I'll be purchasing MW2. I get that IW screwed the PC community, I get that they made poor choices in marketing, and I get that some people don't like the idea of "COD4 1.5", but after getting laid off from my job and not being able to find work might budget is extremely tight and I'm going to want to play games that my friends will play the most, and I know at least 20-30+ people buying MW2.

And even if it is "COD4 1.5", COD4 was one of the best shooters I've played this generation, probably my most played shooter since SOCOM II. So I'll be looking forward to it.

5/5? With PS2-like graphics?
mintaro  +   1756d ago
You must've had the most powerful PS2 on the planet.
sukru  +   1756d ago
I know I'm feeding the troll, but...
Can you name one game on the PS2 that has comparable graphics to MW2?
theEnemy  +   1756d ago
geez..
CoD:MW2's graphic ain't no Killzone 2 or Uncharted 2 in the graphics department but saying it's has a PS2-like graphics? You're just plain stupid if you are serious about that.
NecrumSlavery  +   1756d ago
5/5 are fair scores for this game, but any 10/10, 100/100, or A+ shouldn't be taken the same. MW2 isn't perfect. But to avoid the "MW2 vs Uncharted 2" shenanigans, I'll say whatever. Yet another fanboy war will rage. I am planning on picking this up for PS3, but don't forget all the good games out there. And Killzone 2 is still the best shooter of 2009.
chrisulloa  +   1756d ago
KZ2 isn't the best shooter of 2009, I promise.
talltony  +   1756d ago
Halo odst isn't the best shooter of 2009, I promise.

Anyways killzone is just a different flavor than mw2. Mw2 is more of a twitch shooter and killzone 2 is more tactical.
NecrumSlavery  +   1756d ago
No Killzone 2 is the best shooter of this year, but like said...it is much different. One is a light floaty gun, chapter based, fast paced FPS,...while the other is slower, more epic war driven, tactical, but with bigger set pieces and team themed online. Oh and stellar visuals you can't find on any other console shooter.

"KZ2 isn't the best shooter of 2009, I promise. "

1. You didn't play it
2. I still agree because Uncharted 2 is the best shooter for 2009

Here's the industry double standards.

Everything that is flawed about this game, is overlooked, and it's given a 5/5 or a 10/10.

Why should the video game industry be taken seriously like this?
mintaro  +   1756d ago
What exactly is flawed.
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1756d ago
@Mintaro

Obviously in this article, the reviewer wasn't even able to bring it upon himself to give us a real review and list any flaws of the game, but I've read many of the reviews, listing several flaws of the game, (longevity being an example that pops to head instantly).

Yet even with negatives such as this, this game gets 10/10 easy. Other games of the same genre however, get a full point deduction for longevity.
mintaro  +   1756d ago
If you're talking about the single player longevity you may have a point, although it may be one of the rare cases where the length is just the right amount for the story, such as the case with heavenly sword.

My point is it is really hard to look at flaws from someone else's point of view.
You really should play the game first before condemning it.

(I'm assuming you haven't)

i've been fixed to online since i bought it earlier and as far as i can tell it deserves the praise it's been getting, and i'm only level 21 and not even touched the single player which i'm sure in true cod style will be epic.

also first map i played online was a remake of my fav map from the original Call of Duty :D :D :D

Killzone 2 kciks the living Bajesus outta Modern Milkfare 2.

if you want Flop after Flop and rehash of old games with crappy visuals consistantly and a hardware failure rate of a whopping 54%.. then the Xbox 360 is just for you.

But if you want a reliable console,TONS and TONS of AAA exclusives,better online community (no 10yr old crybabys like LIVE)
better UI (FYI the XMB won a emmy award back in 06,what has live won?)
better controls,no rehash garbage like 360.. then your best bet is the allmighty beast itself,PLAYSTATION 3.

JUMP OUT & PLAY B3YOND!

What does that have to do with anything, when MW2 is also on the ps3?
Stationfan  +   1756d ago
Although I'm getting the game to have fun with my friends, a game as big as this will always get a pass if it has flaws. Just like GTA4 which is one of the highest rated next gen game on metacritic.

Whic many including myself felt it didn't deserve so many perfect scores.
superfedya  +   1756d ago
Ok, ok, not PS2 like graghics, but PS2 HD...

ps2 hd toy story graphics
lol
Barragan  +   1756d ago
flaws? why did it get a 10 when it had flaws?
ok i can admit cod mw2 has flaws, not big but it has flaws but if a flawed game shouldnt have a 10 then no game should have a 10 but this game is 100% different than cod4 despite what all the cod haters claim and the games players arent nearly all noobs just look at cod4s leaderboard and check all the horrible records that means nowhere near that 10 million + gamers are noobs a small percent from that are
