Every year game developers come out with a new fun an exciting video game which is a gamers must have. Activision and Infinity Ward have done it once again! Call of Duty has a long line of making great war video games. MW2 has implemented a new mode enabling your friends to use either split-screen or online to play together and play the Spec ops missions. After reviewing the game it has nothing out of the ordinary, yet it is still fun and addicting. Many remember Modern Warfare and its famous characters such as Soap,Ghost and Cap. Price and well its a great thing Infinity Ward has utilized them once again.
There is so much to tell and this is all due to the “Dev’s” who have put much time and effort to release this successful game, and trust me there is much detail to everything ranging from the weapons, characters, vehicles and backround/setting. The story line is well developed and it is a specialty that Activison has been doing for the past Call of Duty series of games. Many might be asking themselves how many achievements there is and how much Gamer score you can get, that is for Xbox owners, there a total of 50 achievements and a total of 1000 Gamer score. Very easy to achieve and you can get all achievements in campaign, that means no more multi-player only achievements! Well at least for the Modern Warfare series. MW2 takes place ranging from Washington D.C. and as south as Brazil. For those who are new to playing first-person or new to the Call of Duty series you should put your level to easy and for all you experienced out there there is only one difficulty to go, Veteran.
There has however been one very controversial mission called “No Russian,” Infinity Ward has implemented a warning system that asks to proceed playing the mission which is very graphic for some. This mission consists of going on a rampage in a Russian airport, killing innocent people along the way. The only country to ban the game because of this was Russia; many had viewed it has pro-terrorist. It is all part of the story, and I don’t see an immediate removal of this level.
But most of you gamers out there only care about the online play, Infinity Ward has done a great job overall the weapons and explosion are as real as they can get when playing at my friend’s house with a 5.1 surround sound system and some car Kickers making it 6.1 surround sound is as good as it gets. And it is just seamless when playing it on my very big 1080p LCD. Of course you don’t need all this to enjoy it but playing it at its true potential is a wonderful sight.
Now back to the online play, it is the same as Modern Warfare except the icons such as the experience bar has been greatly increased visual wise. New exciting maps, Weapons it can be fast paced sometimes and there is no rest for the weary. Great game modes such as 3rd Person cage match allowing you to play 1vs1 online on 3rd person view, or for Hardcore people as myself, Hardcore team Deathmatch. A definite plus is the wide range of perks and the mix and match you can use. This game overall is one of the best games ever made and a definite must for all gamers out there.
