Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is a mouthful to say, but is pinpoint accurate in what you’re getting. This is a remaster of just the campaign for the 2009 sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Every texture has been retouched, updated, and modernized for today’s consoles and PCs that makes it feel anything but eleven years old. While its pacing is breakneck, and the story is overkill, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is still an incredible ride, even if it isn’t as fully featured as the original.
Everybody loves a good story involving dragons, treasure, and adventure. You know what else everybody loves? Reliving their old memories and feeling good. There’s a more concise term for that sensation, but I’ve thrown it around enough lately that I’m taking the scenic route instead.
After spending so much time in the future, and a quick romp in the past, Call of Duty goes back to the present. And Call of Duty: Modern Warfare does so in spectacular fashion. The campaign serves as a reboot, offering realism and authenticity not explored in this series before. The multiplayer has that remarkable Infinity Ward trademark on it. And the Special Ops mode continues where the story ends for you and friends to play cooperatively that’s been gone for far too long. This feels like a return to form for the series, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare feels like coming home.
