Modern Warfare 2 !
There are three acts, and there are three to four chapters in each act. You will get about 6-7 hours of game play in Modern Warfare 2. You play as two characters, a guy named Roach and Call of Duty 4’s main character Soap. When you’re playing as Roach he seems to get hurt in some overly exaggerative way when every chapter ends and it makes me wonder how he’s still alive. After a while, it begins to get too predictable and boring although the ending does some what make up for it. The single player is a bit disappointing considering how epic Call of Duty 4 story was. However, the single player campaign is still worth a play through.<br><br>The game play of Modern Warfare 2 is more of the same but just modified a bit. The control set up is the same as COD 4, so you will feel right at home with Modern Warfare 2. The enemy A.I is smart even on an easy difficulty setting. Your enemies will take cover, shoot, call for back up, and react as a real person would. One thing that is different from the last installment is that when you get shot at, you will see some kind of blood mixed with water come on your screen indicating that you have gotten shot. As the previous games, the more red the screen gets, the closer you are from dying. Modern Warfare 2 also has dual wielding weapons. There’s a new mode in Modern Warfare 2 called Special Ops. There are five different Spec Ops modes. You start off with Alpha’s Spec Ops and you will need four stars from Alpha to move on to Bravo and so forward. The good thing about Spec Ops is that you can do it split screen, two player co-op or solo. There are also about four to five chapters in each Spec Ops mode.<br><br>There are sixteen brand new maps to play. There are now five new modes online. There is Capture the Flag, 3rd Person Teams, Hardcore Ricochet SD and 3rd person Cage matches. Despite the fact that in 3rd person mode, the zoom in of the gun is practically broken, you should still give it a try.<br><br>You now have titles and emblems that you can unlock depending on your performance and ranking online. Another new feature in Modern Warfare 2 is one called Accolades, it basically keeps track of what you do online and gives you rewards for certain things you do. For instance, it gave me a reward called unstoppable, which means I had the longest kill streak in an online match. One thing they did to the perk system in Modern Warfare 2 is that they cleared it up and only added what was necessary. So this time around there isn’t four or five good perks and eight unnecessary perks in the menu. Also, perks have a level up system, so when you use that perk enough it will level up and enhance the perk. They also took out Martyrdom and Juggernaut from regular perks and added a new perk called Death Streak. Death streak is activated when you die three-four times in a row. You have four death streak modes to choose from, they have Copy Cat, Painkiller (Juggernaut), Final Stand and Martyrdom. There are also a decent amount of customizable kill streak’s rewards which goes as following:<br><br>* 3 Kills – UAV<br>* 4 Kills – Care Package<br>* 4 Kills – Counter UAV<br>* 5 Kills – Sentry Gun<br>* 5 Kills – Predator Missile<br>* 6 Kills – Precision Air strike<br>* 7 Kills – Strike<br>* 7 Kills – Attack Helicopter<br>* 8 Kills – Emergency Airdrop<br>* 9 Kills – Pave Low<br>* 9 Kills – Stealth Bomber<br>* 11 Kills – Chopper Gunner<br>* 11 Kills – AC-130<br>* 15 Kills – EMP<br>* 25 Kills – Tactical NukeRead full review

modern warfare 2
When you look at the total package, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is hands-down one of the best first-person shooters out there, and a truly amazing offering across any system. With that being said, our score comes with a disclaimer. For those planning to check out everything Modern Warfare 2 has to offer – online competition, full co-op Spec Ops mode, as well as the campaign – you’re looking at a no-brainier purchase. For the strictly single player crowd, however, Modern Warfare 2 is surprisingly short, and doesn’t live up to the standard set by previous Call of Duty games. The campaign can be completed in as little as four and a half hours, and the missions make better scenarios and moment-to-moment adrenaline rushes than they do a cohesive, well-told story. If you’re going solo, you’ve officially been warned. Look at the complete Modern Warfare 2 experience though, and there’s no denying its rightful place at the top.<br><br>8.5 Presentation<br>The graphical presentation is great, but campaign’s storytelling needs work. Single player is short, and doesn’t entirely live up to the Call of Duty standard.<br>10 Graphics<br>What was already an impressive graphical engine has only improved over the last two years. More effects, grander environments, and a truly spectacular overall visual offering.<br>10 Sound<br>Along with graphical design, Modern Warfare 2’s audio is upped substantially. Authentic weapon sounds and more in-game chatter mix with a beautiful adaptive score by Hans Zimmer.<br>9.0 Game play<br>There’s no single AC-130 “wow” moment in single player, but it’s fun throughout. Special Ops mode and multiplayer are must-play, and completely make the package.<br>10 Lasting Appeal<br>While campaign is short, Spec Ops mode is an awesome addition to the package. Multiplayer is stronger than ever, and truly limitless in replay value.<br>9.5<br>Incredible OVERALLRead full review
