Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

 PC/360/PS3, Activision/Infinity Ward

You probably already know everything there is to know about the latest instalment in the Call of Duty series, so we’ll rush over it all. The game’s an FPS, with fantastic multi-player, and single player that’s far more solid than the likes of Halo, and its latest challenger, The Conduit. The franchise is juggled between two developers, and this year it’s Infinity Ward’s turn to make the game, who are the more talented of the pair.

There’s bound to be far more to this instalment than to CoD5, and the main campaign now adds all sorts of new things like snow mobiles and helicopters, expanding on 2007’s fantastic Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. There are also two further CoD games coming out on Nintendo formats, as shown down the side of this page...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Wii

Wii, Trenchyard/Infinity Ward/Activision

The Wii missed out on the original Modern Warfare, so the format is finally being brought right up to date with this port. We’re not quite sure how feel about them realising an inferior version (Bar the controls, for which we’re betting there’s a 90% chance they’ll be 100% better.) two years after the game came out, on the day they’re realising the sequel. Oh well, at least now Wii owners can at least play the game...

Modern Warfare: Mobilised

DS, n-Space/Activision

n-Space have been handling the DS versions of Call of Duty since, well, the start of DS Call of Duty, and have produced solid, if slightly underwhelming games on the tiny cartridges. This time, they look set to blow everything they’ve done before out of the water.

In adding a new six-player online mode, (First time a online FPS has been done on DS since the simply incredible Metroid Prime: Hunters) a new main game designed for DS rather than a shrunk down version of the big console version and shinier graphics, if you have to answer the call of duty on the bus, this looks like the way to do it.
