Modern Warfare 2 by Infinity Ward is a fantastic game for the Xbox 360. The graphics are the best I have ever seen, considering I just bought my Xbox 360, and this is the first game I played. If you are using your Xbox 360 on a HD TV, this game won’t dissapoint. The gameplay of Modern Warfare 2 is also incredible. The game is just a load of fun.
So let’s start with the plotline of the game. You are two different people in the game: Roach and Ramirez. Roach is a member of Taskforce 141, and his commander is Soap McTavish, the character you were in the original Modern Warfare. Ramirez is a US Army Ranger. Russian Terrorists attack a Russian Airport, lead by Makarov. The US Government sent in a spy, who helped with the assault to get closer to Makarov. Makarov found out and killed him, making people think it was the Americans who made the attack. Roach’s job is working overseas to find and kill Makarov. Ramirez’s job is to work with the rangers and the U.S. Army to defend American soil.
The graphics made my father walk in the room and ask why I was watching a television show about the war. They are the best I have ever seen! The graphics of this game are fantastic! There is not much more to say about them, other than the fact that there is a lot of blood and gore in this game. You will also have to break a dog’s neck when it jumps on you.
The Xbox Live compatability is flawless. There is never skipping or distortion if you have a fast Internet connection. If you do not have a fast network connection, the game won’t play. It knows how fast your connection is and can make decisions on whether to let the game start or not depending on your speed.
The gameplay is amazing. Although it is hard to explain, the game never skips, the game will never ever freeze, and it will always run in the highest resolution possible. The shooter is incredibly advanced.
In the end, this is my favorite game. I would definitely purchase this game, although I suggest to get it used, considering it is pretty expensive. It is Rated M for Mature, and is not OK for anyone below the age of 12. There is one level that is completely optional, where you aid a terrorist in killing thousands of people in an airport. It warns you before and tells you that it is explicit and offensive content.
