pg - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Let me get this out in the open first. I SUCK at first person shooters. There have been a variety of PS3 FPS's that I've become acquainted with. I deeply enjoyed Resistance 2's campaign and co-op play, but disliked the team deathmatch. I found Killzone 2's campaign to be fun but un-memorable and hated the online multiplayer aspect.

MW2's campaign is fun, high energy, diverse, and definitely a challenge for me so far. The co-op special ops play mode is a hell of a lot of fun but would be SO much better if it wasn't limited to two people. I wish MW2 took some of the ideas from R2 co-op play like allowing more than 2 people to participate. No matter how hard the special ops mode gets ANYONE can beat the missions. Why? They're predictable. You can play them over and over again and they're nearly exactly the same. Don't get me wrong... so let me re-iterate; special ops mode is FUN!

Two words. Team Deathmatch. This is where MW2 excels. It's freaking awesome! The controls work seamlessly, the maps are diverse, and you can get awards for dieing more often than anyone else (that's me)! Now that I'm familiar with MW2's game play; I definitely have to say this is where it's at. Leave your ego at the door and no matter how bad you suck and how often you die this multiplayer game is still freaking awesome.

"But what if he shot you in the face?" - Dumb and Dumber



  1. You saying you "suck at FPS" is one the most honest things I have ever heard you say. Then again, currently I think we are about equal on this game ... damn, that shows how bad I really am I right now.

  2. I don't know if I should feel offended by that or not.
