Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2: Issues to be noted
We all know that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will be a great game. One of our editors will have the review of the game pretty soon. Any case the original set new standards in the first person shooter genre and the sequel has a tough task ahead. Here we analyze some of the issues we had in the first game and unfortunately we might see them in the sequel as well.
Length of Single Player Campaign
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare had some of the best single player campaigns in first person shooters. Some of the action easily rivalled Hollywood and specially the ending sequences were crazy. But the only thing that really bugged me was the length of single player campaign. I finished the game in about 6 hours and was left wanting for more. Unfortunately the length in the sequel won’t be too long as the developers have already confirmed that it won’t be lengthier than the first one.
Co-Op and Full Campaign Mode
One of the biggest issues which I found with the original was that it did not featured a Co-op mode online and neither a an online campaign mode. And again we all know that this will be the case with Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 as well. This is kind of disappointing since the game strength lies in the multiplayer component and Co-Op and Full Campaign Mode should have been included.
Gears of War Effect
We all know how Xbox owners loved the online multiplayer modes of Gears of War. The major reason was its simplicity. It easily became one of the most played games on Xbox LIVE. Now EPIC tried a lot of variations in Gears of War 2. As a result they made things complicated which ended up in a pretty complex and unpopular multiplayer component of the game. Will the same phenomenon affect Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2? We have to wait and see.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare looked amazing as a 2007 game. I believe no other game close to what the game offered visually than. Two years later we have games like Killzone 2 already setting a very high standards graphics wise. We all know the sequel will be using an updated engine of the original engine, so Killzone 2 quality type of graphics might not be achievable.
