I've had to hold back my review since this first came out as i was slightly set down. The first modern warfare had the element of realism even it was fiction but im sure many will agree modern warfare 2 is way too far fetched making the campaign mode slighly laughable. The campaign failed for me to have that well known call of duty epic opening missions to really give that initial smack in the face wow factor and with the story going from one way over the top extream to another, it just had nothing on the mw1. The term 'more is less' is definetly definetly the case here, i'd sack the writers on this one.
The co-op is a interesting twist, it's failed to interest me ad keep me playing but its a good extra. It's certainly no 'nazi zombies' but its a good little extra, but im not sure it'll be good idea to continue with it in future installments. i saw it as more taken away from the main attraction, the much loved and long lasting multiplayer.
First off i loved to amount of extras there was for the weapons and it seemed to be pleanty of maps. After a very short time it came clear there was alot of past favourite guns missing and many of the new ones you just wouldnt pick over the old and the maps became either too big or just boring. Maybe in future infinity ward should listen a bit more to what the fans want, like a larger selection of weapons and maps to cater for every different players tastes. To some i might sound greedy, but in a game that takes so much time to complete, variation is everything.
I hope the next modern warfare goes back to the drawing board and does away the joke 'invasion of america' and the fictional 'task force 141'. Bring back the modern warfare the fans love and give those want to be hollywood writers the boot. Now other developers have been set the standard of first person shooters being modern warfare, its only a matter of time before they better the modern warfare series unless they sort it out. A very good game but with all the cock ups, it'll never be the ground breaker mw1 was.
