PSX Extreme: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Review

PSX Extreme writes: "Read this before you post comments: So you see yet another dreaded 8.9, and convince yourself that it's a bad score. You will likely jump down my throat, call me a whole bunch of names, and vow to never read my work again. And that's all good, if you're a 13-year old who doesn't wish to read and understand the opinion of one game critic, who strongly believes that even though Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a great game, it doesn't offer nearly enough groundbreaking material to warrant a 9.0. And in fact, at times, the game feels like it's taken a few steps backward in some instances. And before the alarmists and conspiracy-theorists come to claim I'm doing this to get attention, don't even waste your time. If I was, indeed trying to whore in the attention, I'd have given Modern Warfare 2 a score much lower than an 8.9. Moreover, I'd probably choose a massive 1st party game, say, like Uncharted 2, instead of a multi-platform title. Again, it's important to keep your cool and read through the whole review to see where I'm coming from."

Good to see someone who has a clear enough head to actually dock points from this game for faults.

One of my favorite gaming sites. Arnold (the guy that reviewed the game for the site) is very consistent and unbiased with his reviews. He offers explanations behind his reasoning.

I'm still loving the avg 1.7 Reader Reviews on IGN.

Is good to see that score, I can believe it more than the 9+ everywhere

Nice review, but with all those flaws a 8.5 would be more accurate IMO. The reference to KZ2 was in order.

ive been playing mw2 the last couple of days. Its a great game but i agree with the review. Its one of the few reviews thats honest and didnt buy into the hype! great game but not fantastic. 8.9 is the right score nothing less nothing more. Peace:-)
