Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

This week, Zero Punctuation reviews Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Watch Video

So wait, does ANYONE who posts within the first five minutes get banned, or is it only the ones who claim to have watched the video/yell "first"? This has been bugging me for a while.

Nice, I agree with most of that too. Co-op missions were the best. Also, the stupid cheap deaths every ten seconds in the campaign really piss me off.

I think posting before its actually possible to finish watching the video is generally frowned upon.

Also i definately think it would have to be a type of pistol that most closely resembles the sound of a bang.

Six hours of single player?
yeah, I'll pass.

Yes.

archyoda77:
yay

Niace you got it before the Yahtzee's automated post

Anyways, the single player was way too short. Now multiplayer sucks on PC, so theres no reason to get it.

AND SNIPER TEAMS ARE NO GAY AT ALL

I got put on probation for being the first comment. It wasn't a bad comment, I just didn't watch the video.

But as for this vid, I was beginning to lose faith in Yahtzee, but with one swift swipe he summarized everything I found bad about this game.

Me Happy.

Lovely. I had a feeling you wouldn't review CoD6:MW2 (seriously, that's a fucking unnecessarily long abbrievation), but lo, you did!

The best review in a long time. It's been a while since I laughed at ZP, I was getting worried.

Both, poeple who post before they watch the video and have nothing to add and people who still think shouting first is in any way intelligent.

I have to agree 2 main characers die one cool NPC dies and one main character also most dies

the co-op spec ops missions are great to play with a friend and the sneaking missions are lot of fun.

I still like this game a lot and online multi-player is a lot fun

the graphics are nice and the main black guy is voice by the same person who voice captain anderson from Mass effect 1

LOL "a cat getting his tail stuck in a ceiling fan"

*After I had watched it*
I personally didn't like this game either, for mostly the same reasons as him.
I had to lol at "MW3: Solid Soap"

lolz loved the review. i have to agree the campaign was too short and the sudden (and retarded) death of your 141 pc was well stupid

So, in summary: Single player, silly and short. Just like the first Call of Duty, you'll encounter situations where you're getting killed many times trying to move 5 yards. Multiplayer, much better than single player. You'll probably buy it anyway if you're an easily impressed graphics addict.

Well, I'll say one thing about MW2, it certainly lived up to its expectations.

The bullets and eye bursting part is so true. You need to be a damn ninja most missions. Also,k i too love the Spec Op missions, there was something awesome about me and a mate helping eachother out using the AC130 and using the milatary talk Yahtzee used. Anyway, great review!

Shame he doesn't play online -- the reason nearly EVERYONE bought it.

Amazing review though and glad 'ya liked it.

He was rather nice to the game i think. Really the only complaint against the game was the story. But hey good review anyway. Better than any review from any other website.

"Squeek"
"You're all in on this!"

That is pure comedy gold.

Great episode Yahtz

*laughs* I remember when he did Modern Warfare one. Awesome job!

Finally a decent review of a game I have interest in. :)
Awesome!

right you are Yhatzee, you herculian exemplar you, this game tries too hard in singleplayer to cover the fact that it was made purely for the multiplayer crowd, its sad rly but I still had a blast playing it on veteran dificulty to prolong the shortness of the campagin, which is rly short btw. At least the german pornstar grew a full beard this time around...

Did enjoy that a lot! russia invades america...Bam!

Lol, I love to hear Yahtzee play devil's Advocate. There have been so many positive reviews about the game, that I was beginning to hear the sounds of IW tossing each other off in my sleep. I'm also rather glad that he took the piss out of the PC dying three times, because, lets face it, it really is nothing but trying to cash in on the response to Jackson kicking it in the first one.

I am disappointed however that still no one has ripped on the blood splatters. Every time I see it I cringe, because it looks like friggin' jelly. I keep expecting Bill Pullman to show up in a flying Winnebago.

I have to agree on the part about the certain mission where you have to get through the mob, only to get killed.
evil on veteran. if you do to well, it spawns an airstrike on your ass >:
just pure evil...
Nice video aswell. I can agree with most of the content.

Specifically, I live on Io, and thus have heard nothing prior to this review aside from the fact that I am apparently one of the few people in this solar system that doesn't have this game. Following this review, I can't say that my level of interest has changed much.

The developers were surprised with how well the first one did so they tried to see how much they could get away with this time...

Damn... And here I was hoping to wait until the price went down and buy it for the Single Player and maybe try out the Multiplayer without having wasted 60$ if it bombs (like I'm sure it does). Oh well...

I actually wasn't that surprised that he didn't like the main campaign, but I was surprised that he actually tried some kind of multiplayer. Was a nice review, but I don't think I'll be getting Modern Warfare 2 all the same. Borderlands fills in the FPS void in my PS3's library at the moment, and right now I'm playing the hell out of Assassin's Creed II.

Wonder if he'll be doing that next week...

As usual he pretty much sums up what annoyed me about the game. He isn't missing much from not trying the multiplayer though. Apart from the usual batch of Xbox LIVE freaks and their tiresome abuse.

The story was just completely unbelievable to the point where I was sitting there at the end wondering if my character was going to wake up out of a deep coma and say it was just a dream.

Oh dear...
I can see this review causing some controversy of it's own *runs for cover*
Have to agree about them throwing away realism but I still prefer a game thats more like this than say Operation Flashpoint. Personal preference. Fantastic as per usual though!

Finally a critic who can support the airport without covering his ass in kevlar. Seems most people screaming about this level don't know the attitude on Second City; (paraphrasing here) If you don't even try something new, you'll never find something new that'll work.

That was one of your best reviews Yahtzee.

Although I'm pretty sure MW2 was not made for the Single Player (despite it's polish) and more for the Multiplayer. Although Special Ops was good.

I lol'd at "MW3:Solid Soap"

Of course the story was ridiculous, there was no way they were going to realisticly top the first one.

you'd think they would have some sort of ban system that made sense, but I got put on probation because the video hadn't ended(had like 1 minute left on it) and I had commented on "only part of it" because I didn't finish the rest of it. Who the hell cares if I watched the whole thing, I had a fucking opinion. I mostly write out what I want to say about half way in than wait for the video to end. Has the same post, but it is "later".
