Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Xbox 360, 2010)
One of my favorite genres is First Person Shooter games. And the sub-category in that genre are war games and even better if it is World War 2 era and best when its “Call of Duty” franchise.
Well, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” is almost all of that except the World War 2 part. I just don’t like the “Modern Warfare” series of the franchise as much as their World War 2 era games. I like being part of a real war, amid the chaos and madness, and fighting for something big. With modern war, I always feel like a G.I. Joe douchbag. I don’t really support the American army in today’s world and I don’t feel that comfortable playing some gang-ho soldier thug shooting down underpowered “terrorists”.
It’s still a great game, but does not have the atmospheric feel of the World War 2 “Call of Duty” games. In those, there were parts where you felt like just one soldier among hundreds and bullets were whizzing past you, your fellow soldiers dying all around you, and it felt BIG. Not so much here.3/5
