After the huge let-down that was Modern Warfare 2019, a game like Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered was a refreshing return to the franchise’s roots.
Return to the story that built the Call of Duty franchise up to the giant it is today.
Take on the Russian military in an all out war. Fight off paratroopers at the White House, sneak through enemy infested forests, even hunt down traitors and kill them. Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered was a hard look into the harsh reality of wartime violence.
Sound effects are incredibly realistic, the physics are realistic and the visuals were awesome. It was pretty obvious that this game was built on the same engine as Modern Warfare 2019. However, unlike MW 2019, the recoil was in the standard Call of Duty range. Playing this campaign was as enjoyable as it was a tease.
Infinity Ward decided not to include multiplayer in this recreation of Modern Warfare 2; the real bread and butter of the COD franchise. According to reports Infinity Ward felt that fans would hate it.
Players of all skill levels can enjoy this campaign. Newbies can snap on target at the push of the ADS button or users with higher skills can turn off Aim Assist for a more authentic Call of Duty experience.
Reaching the ending within a few hours can be a let-down but the experience was fun while it lasted.
For the month of August Playstation Plus users have free access to this game in the Playstation Store. Make sure you don’t miss out on this one.
