Call of Duty and Gaming News, 18 November 2009

Cheating sucks... This is what an MW2 PC aimbot looks like.

Well, I finished the Modern Warfare 2 campaign on my other Xbox, so now both my Joker961 gamertag and my Secret Identity have comparable records. I completed the campaign on Regular without resorting to a difficulty downgrade on the last chapter. The storyline is pure crap, totally unbelievable. But the visuals along the way are, well, some of the best I've ever seen in a video game. It's not just their quality. The visual quality, the depth of detail, is astounding. But it's the way particular game moments stick in your mind. In Modern Warfare 2, there are many Crowning Moments of Awesome. Almost every level has some iconic moment that will stick in your mind long after the lead-beret plot has evaporated. Some levels are themselves awesome, boasting multiple CMAs. The Gulag level, for example, is not only an incredibly polished piece of game play. It's perfect. The enemies are well distributed without being a total crank. The objectives are crystal clear. The fighting has some nice variety to it as you use different weapons and tactics along the way to your objective. There's even a bromance moment in there that is just right. The Gulag level's climax is, well, climactic to the point of being literally jaw-dropping. It's unfortunate that Modern Warfare 2's narrative doesn't rise to the level of its otherwise excellent set pieces. On to the links:
