Another week, another Zero Punctuation. Not surprisingly, this week has Yahtzee taking on Modern Warfare 2. In a nutshell, he finds the gameplay a mixed bag, co-op fun as hell, and the plot and controversy beyond ridiculous. That sounds about right.
I haven’t played the game yet, but it does strike me that the realism has completely gone. COD4 walked that line successfully, but it sounds like MW2 is (as fun as it may be) a collection of “wouldn’t it be cool if” set-pieces. Still, all the players will tell you that it’s the multiplayer that’s the real draw, and I’m completely out of the loop there. Time to go play some Excitebike!
