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. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) A/A+

Heh, Metacritic marked this as a 100. Wonder what A+/A+ gets. 105?
Natsu X FairyTail  +   2003d ago

A+ or A-

still AAA.
Microsoft Xbox 360  +   2003d ago
No points deducted for lack of innovation?
kraze07  +   2003d ago
Why would a game lose points for lack of innovation? Most games nowadays aren't innovative at all.
Rock Bottom  +   2003d ago
Most ps3 exclusive lose points over innovation, KZ2 did, so does Uncharted 2.

@Rock Bottom
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.

@ Feral Gamer
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 Gamer  +   2003d ago
Well I admit I don't read/watch every review, so I could be wrong.

This as it stands right now is just to show what kind of community we support.
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.
Halo3 MLG Pro  +   2003d ago
Well deserved. :)
MajestieBeast  +   2003d ago
I know 360 there are games going above this auto aim pos that deserve goty way more then this overhyped 1.5 version. Cronaldo how do you know this, there are better fps out there with better multiplayer then this casual campnadefest that do use dedicated servers(gasp). Just cause you think its the best thing since sliced bread doesn't mean others think it is.

Just cause you don't think it's the best thing since sliced bread doesn't mean that other do. The consensus seems to be that it is that good, except on n4g of course, where people are STILL bïtching about 0.2 points deducted (from games that scored very well overall) for lack of originality. Oh the humanity.

For a good review, that highlights the differences from COD4 to MW2, check out:

Sitdown  +   2003d ago
I really don't understand..
all the hate for this game, can somebody explain it for me.
cronaldo7  +   2003d ago
PS3 - bad company 2 exclusive beta
PC - no dedicated servers
Rofflecopter  +   2003d ago
Hah, that pretty much sums it up.

For me, it's not that I have MW2, it's just that there are better games to play when you don't only own one system. I don't hate the game, and I'll get it eventually. I just don't think it deserves all the 10's it gets and I hate CoD Fanboys.
Qui-Gon Jim  +   2003d ago
I think what turned me off of this is all the fanboys who, instead of letting Killzone 2 be its own game, demanded that it play more like CoD. Even after the patch that fixed the input lag, people wouldn't let KZ2 be because they wanted it to be "Call of Duty: Future Warfare" instead of what it was.
Qui-Gon Jim  +   2003d ago
taking another look at this now
For some reason, I haven't been excited about this game at all, but seeing reviews, maybe i'll have to check it out. Probably a rental for me though, because i don't get much chance to play online, and i hear the campaign is pretty short. Then again, if the harder settings are a decent, but reasonable, challenge... AAAaaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh!!! Too many good games out this year!

BTW, if you buy this at Toys "R" Us (before 2:00 today only) and join their rewards program, you get a gift card. $20 by itself, and up to $45 if you buy a certain games with it.

Who f%*king cares if a game you like got knocked for not being innovative? Did you like the game? Then that's all that matters. Are you people that socially stunted that you care what other people think about what you like?
