  1. But, if the only console you happen to own is a Wii then you owe it to yourself to check out Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – Reflex. Sure the graphics can’t compare to the other versions, but somehow the developers have managed to squeeze everything else that was good into this Reflex edition.

    Think of it like this: the Wii-mote has already proven it can be a good FPS controller, so what's wrong in bringing a good FPS to Wii? Modern Warfare is still an excellent game, even when it's done "good enough" on weaker technology, and like it or not, Reflex fills a niche. Maybe there's a family that only owns a Wii, but with a dad who might enjoy something a little rougher than Mario Kart.
  3. Treyarch have built on last year’s success and really worked hard to ensure that Wii gamers are not left out when it comes to great shooters.

    Call of Duty Modern Warfare: Reflex Edition may be a mouthful to say, but it's one of the most well made and truly great games on the Wii.
  5. With a strong campaign and a rock-solid multiplayer that will keep you playing well into the new year, Reflex shames its competition and delivers a great FPS package. Developers, take note: this is how you do a Wii port.
  6. It’s been two years since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare dropped onto the PS3 and Xbox 360, making the Wii entry very late to the game. But Treyarch, the developer of the solid Call of Duty: World at War, has made it worth the wait. [Holiday 2009, p.85]
  7. Reflex is Modern Warfare at its best. It's very much the same version that we saw on PS3 and XBox 360 two years ago, but set to be played with the nunchuk and the wiimote controllers. It's graphically amazing, with an outstanding sound and the same story that we enjoyed on the original version. It's a good option to expend your money if you're looking forward to buy the best FPS of this console.
  8. Modern Warfare Reflex is a great adaptation and a really good game. It's true there is a difference between the visuals in this game and the original, but its gameplay remains the experience which have made so many players enjoy.
  9. Despite the downgraded visuals, the Reflex Edition of Modern Warfare lives up to its heritage with a strong campaign and multiplayer that will keep you up until sunrise.
  10. The explosions aren't too impressive, the shots aren't too realist and the models aren't too detailed than the past versions, but, still, this is a genuine Modern Warfare.

    Well, its the same thing, just in different consoles. But, like the DS version, if you get use to the different controls it's gonna feel better and smoother than those in the PC or Xbox. Full Review »

    It just doesn't stack up against WaW...It's actually worse, despite being released a year later

    It's the only CoD game I have on the wii, everything in it is great, the controls aren't the best, but it's still a lot of fun to play. A perfect game to pass time. Full Review »
