    Modern Warfare 2’s campaign has always been one of the most praised story modes for the entire first person shooter genre. Welp, it’s back, better than ever. It could use some more innovative goodness here and there but the overall result is a gorgeous and entertaining campaign from beginning to end.

    An excellent remaster of a bonkers campaign, that feels great to play again. It's just a shame that the Special Ops and multiplayer modes didn't make their way in as well.

    With fully updated graphics and sound this, remaster brings the original on par with current day, while keeping the original gameplay. While the choice to bypass the multiplayer altogether, this version is a good choice for those that enjoy a story based FPS with a lot of action and all offers a fine chance for those that gave the campaign in the original a pass.

    Modern Warfare 2 is as intense and spectacular as you remember it –maybe even more with its great new graphics. The fantastic campaign, however, feels short and the lack of multiplayer modes is hard to ignore.

    Often dated and simplistic, there’s no denying MW2 delivers a cinematic spectacle. The real fun comes from Museum mode and re-running with unlockable gameplay mods. [Issue#175, p.79]

    An honest remaster full of beautiful sceneries and spectacular explosions, but the storytelling and gameplay are stuck in the past. And beware - there really is nothing else to see apart from the campaign.

    A competent remaster of a story mode that, while it still has the ability to impress, feels old-fashioned, shallow, and grossly overpriced.

    Had more fun than I did playing MW2019 Multiplayer. Would rather have saved 40 Dollars waiting for this instead.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is a superb recreation of my favourite Call of Duty game. The story stands up well, with big actionCall of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered is a superb recreation of my favourite Call of Duty game. The story stands up well, with big action set-pieces and smaller, more character-driven moments blending well. The divisive No Russian mission is in there, but it can be skipped if you're not into that.

    The combat is brilliant with big meaty feeling weapons, interesting multi-level maps and a good mixture of run and gun, stealth and tower defence. Also, the drone is bloody good fun to use still after all these years.

    The combat is as good as ever, the weapons feel meaty and satisfying and there is a decent amount of variety in weapons to keep things interesting. The graphics are good, as you'd expect from a CoD game.

    The graphics look as good as you'd expect for a PS4 game, and all the usual high production values are on show with superb voice acting and smooth animations everything just feels super polished. Although, I played this after finishing the disappointingly janky We Happy Few so maybe it is just by comparison.

    *I don't care about multiplayer so I can't tell you if that is any good or not.

If you guys don't know what I am talking about, I am talking about the reused main menu and sound design from MW Remastered, and of course the lack of spec ops and muiltiplayer. MW2 Remastered is a nice graphical boost especially in terms of replayability of the MW2 campaign, but it feels like a big "eff you" to nostalgic gamers that really loved Jason West's and Vince Zampella's MW2.
