Read my thoughts on Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 as a competitive game here.

More on my thoughts on Call of Duty as a game series in general.

Challenge Review:

Whilst the single player parts are pretty dull scripted affairs with no real AI, the co-op challenge “Special Ops” missions are the heart of this game and make this a lot more fun than other Call of Duty’s I’ve played as a challenge game.

Competitive Gaming Design Review:

Almost everything you should NOT do in a competitive game is in here.

Competitive Game Review:
N/R

I’ve tried to play it, but I couldn’t review this, as there’s no way to take the actual box game seriously as a competitive game thanks to atrocious anti-competitive gaming design. The only way I’ve seen it work at things like MLG is to make enormous mod changes to turn it into a totally different game.

Overall Score:

The “Special Ops” missions are entirely what this score is based on, they are incredibly better than everything else in the game.
