No matter how fast the gaming world is evolving, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 always feels like home. Let me get one thing straight first; there is not a single Call of Duty campaign that disappoints.

We might have our favourites, but each has its own charm. Nonetheless, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 remains, to this day, one of the most exhilaratingly brutal and breathtakingly hyper-realistic experiences the gaming world has seen. The campaign’s single-player story is instinctively humane and bloodcurdlingly dramatic. It doesn’t stop there, of course. With one of the best multiplayer designs that feature both competitive gameplay and four-player cooperative special ops, Modern Warfare manages to interweave a suspenseful and engaging plotline with a brilliantly lifelike cast.
Cross Platform Game
Available on Windows, Xbox, and PlayStation, Modern Warfare 2 is probably one of the best games out there in terms of mission design, weapon customization and graphics. The remastered version of the same campaign adds HD visuals and amplified audio effects to enhance the quality, which results in a purely blissful sensory treat that gamers will never forget. Apart from being compatible on all the latest consoles, Modern Warfare 2 allows players to adjust difficulty levels, enjoy unrestricted weapon customization, and choose between capable and playable characters like Roach, Soap and Price. The three game-modes; campaign, multiplayer and spec ops are all uniquely defined by their own flair and finesse.
Blood, Gore and Violence
What slap the hardest in the game are the realistic settings, close-to-perfect plotline and relatable characters. The execution of the concept has been done brilliantly, and you would immediately feel connected to the well-written and well-acted script. Modern Warfare 2 presents ultra-smooth gunplay and highly tactical combat. The use of blood, gore and violence can be intensely vehement at some points, but the tight yet smooth flow of the plot lets players savour the indescribable satisfaction of the willing suspension of disbelief. The unbelievably realistic graphical representation of the story and characters offers a truly satisfying, cinematic and true-to-life gaming experience. Brace yourself the best way you can, because the road is going to be brutal, raw and adrenaline-fuelled.
One common controversy surrounding Modern Warfare 2 is the “No Russian Mission”, in which players are required to massacre innocent civilians in an airport. This particular mission stirred a lot of discussion, where people had varying opinions and criticisms about the moral righteousness of it. However, there are options to engage in this mission without firing your gun, or to skip the mission altogether. Hear me out; do not let this keep you from enjoying one of the most uniquely berserk gaming adventures of all time. What needs to be kept in mind is that the make-believe world-building must be viewed as a portal to entertainment and nothing more.
If you have played Call of Duty and still haven’t got your hands on this masterpiece, you are missing out big time. Modern Warfare is possibly the most ridiculously realistic Call of Duty campaign you can play, with immersive environments and challenging missions. The character animations are so astonishingly lifelike that you will instantly feel mesmerized and threatened by the realness of it all. To be completely frank, Modern Warfare 2 revolutionized the entire franchise in a way nothing has ever done before. That is why this instalment remains to be a favourite of most gamers, especially in terms of replay value.
Engage in crisp combat, initiate flawless shooting sequences, get caught up in tense situations, and force your way into the chaos to come out as a hero!
