Summary

Modern warfare 2 was and is still one of the best call of duty campaigns going. In this remaster we get updated visuals, cutscenes and a few little extras. The core gameplay remains unchanged and to be honest you would only be playing this version if it was your first time, need a refresher and can’t be arsed with YouTube or if you want some trophies! Like I say there is no denying it is a fun as hell game to play but for today’s market its a game that came out when the average gamers backlog is stacked, time is valuable and not many will want to step back in time for a campaign. I understand why they took out the multiplayer but it could of still had an online community of hardcore, Co op missions were another startling exemption from the game. Basically this is a standard remaster with no big additions and is only for the niche gamer.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
