1UP - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Review

Mixing real-world locations with bombastic set-pieces MW2 continues the guided, thrill-ride experiences of its predecessor, and adds even more depth to its multiplayer offerings. It might not have fixed all the problems from the first game, but there's just so much quality content packed into this game that it will almost certainly be one of the most-played games in your library for a long time to come.

Heh, Metacritic marked this as a 100. Wonder what A+/A+ gets. 105?

No points deducted for lack of innovation?

kraze072936d ago

Why would a game lose points for lack of innovation? Most games nowadays aren't innovative at all.

Rock Bottom2936d ago

Most ps3 exclusive lose points over innovation, KZ2 did, so does Uncharted 2.

Thank you. I guess some people just don't see the double standards in today's media.

I believe you mean Ratchet & Clank Crack in Time. Eurogamer said it offered nothing new and docked points for that. I haven't heard of KZ2 or UC2 getting docked for unoriginality.

Qui-Gon Jim2936d ago

The only common criticism i recall seeing about UC2 is lack of innovation, but I don't think anyone docked points for it. KZ2, though, i remember a lot of places talking about its lack of innovation and its short campaign (actually not short for an fps), and docking points from it for those.

Check out the Gametrailers review for Uncharted 2.

Feral Gamer2936d ago

Well I admit I don't read/watch every review, so I could be wrong.

Sevir042936d ago

This game isn't a break through in any way for the genre, not graphics, certainly not game play and physics, not anything. yet, this will surely receive outstanding scores. it's mega short 4 hour campiegn will be praised while games that give you total value as a single player experience while introducing plenty to genre while moving it forward will always be in the shadows. when the industry has fanboys the faults are always over looked for a game.

I'm not saying MW2 will be bad. but I know it sure as hell aint this good either. it's more a step in the rare than a step in the right. nothings changed. but oh well, infinityWard needs to do better. I'll still go out and get this game though because It's simply COD4.

AAA that's funny, I just hope they give us expansion. Cause I'm already halfway through.

MW2 is a dream come true for shooter fans.
