Lets talk about “That” Level

One of the levels of Modern Warfare 2 has recently caught some controversy especially in the wake of the recent terrorist attack in Ft. Hood Florida last week.  The game gives a warning and allows players to skip the level without penalty, however there is no cut scene or anything to explain what happened if you do skip the level.  In case you haven’t heard, the level in question puts you in the role of a C.I.A. operative infiltrating a terrorist cell, in order to prove your loyalty, you must participate in a terrorist attack on a crowed airport, which in the eyes of the mole is a price that must be paid inorder to get  intel from the cell and stop a much bigger terrorist attack and save more innocent lives than would be lost in the airport attack. I want everyone’s opinion on this issue, personally I feel that the attack is an important plot device and is essential as the entire game deals with the consequences of the airport attack.

5 out of 5

Modern Warfare 2 doesn’t just pick of where Modern Combat left off it takes the game to a whole new dimension. Set five years after the fist game in the year 2016, players will find Warfare has truly become modernized, borders have disappeared, uniforms are relics, the battlefields is called the world, war is fought everywhere. Modern Warfare could in fact be seen as wake up call against war as players no longer fight in an unnamed, generic, Eastern European bloc, but instead are called to the front lines in suburbia. Yes you read this correctly, the Russians have invaded the United States and your job is to defend the suburbs. In one of the missions, called “Wolverines!”, a nod to the 1980s classic Russian invasion film Red Dawn players are tasked with defending a Burger King from the Russian army. Of course the suburban invasion is nothing compared to the burning of Washington you will say and play later in the game. While apocalyptic imagery is used throughout the game players are reminded by several soldiers that Washington has been rebuilt before and will be rebuilt again (the Canadian army invaded and burned down Washington in 1814) Modern Combat amps up the imagery and packs a huge emotional punch the way only a movie has done before, I give this game a perfect 5 out of 5

I just bought Modern Warfare 2 when it came out last night on November 10th, 2009.  I did not want to wait until the weekend because I heard there would be a controversial scene in the game and I did not want to hear about it on the Today Show before I played it.   I just bought Modern Warfare 2 when it came out last night on November 10th, 2009.  I will post again with my full reaction to Call of Duty Modern Warfare Part 2 this weekend, until then I suggest you go out and get it initial thoughts are, “This game is awesome.”
