Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is Fun!

So I started playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 this weekend after realizing that I hadn’t played a Call of Duty game since the first Modern Warfare game. I am so surprised by how fun this game is. I’ve been focusing on the single player campaign, as I’m not a fan of online play especially for FPS games, and I am surprised as to how enthralled I am in the story of this game. I barely knew what was happening in Modern Warfare 1 but I am digging this game. The invasion of America, the rescue of Captain Price, it’s all wonderful. The one issue I have is the infamous No Russian mission, which is optional since it’s so controversial.

I wasn’t offended by it but considering from a story point, it was unnecessary and doesn’t make sense. Shooting all those civilians is sensationalism and although how it ends sets the stage for the rest of the story, it doesn’t add up. So one dead American left behind means the attack must’ve been ordered by all of the USA? No one is going to check this in Russia? What about the other gunmen? You’re not going to try and find them? Also, an attack on an airport translates into an all-out assault on Washington D.C.?

Aside from that, the story is engaging and cohesive enough that I can understand it despite the military jargon. I don’t like shooters so this is a surprise to me. I’m almost done, I’m on Act III, Scene 5, but even though I’m not done, I can recommend buying this game just on the campaign alone. A noteworthy tangent, I’m playing the PC version of the game and if you can run it at max settings, this is the way to go. Superior controls and beautiful graphics make this the best version IMO. Anyways, what have you been playing recently? Comment below and let us know.
