Modern Warfare returns

This post is about one of my favourite games of all time - the Call of Duty series. Every PC gamer knows there's just one game that has taken every fan's expectation of a war game and exceeded it, creating the one and only "almost real" war simulator - Call of Duty 4 : Modern Warfare. The game was a hit on all major platforms - the PC, PS3 and the Xbox 360. Gamers the world over still play the game online en masse.

Here's COD 4's trailer -

The 5th iteration of COD, World at War, though a pretty good game, didn't do anything new for the series, it was merely a World War 2 game that used Modern Warfare's tried and tested methods.

On March 25, 2009, a teaser trailer was shown confirming that the next iteration of the series, "Modern Warfare 2", would be released on the 10th of November 2009. Ever since the second teaser went up on May 10th, the net has been abuzz with the kinda excitement one would see before a Hollywood movie's release, and people have been eagerly waiting for the "Reveal trailer" to pop up on the internet. It finally did on May 24th, and from the looks of it, MW2 is going to be one helluva game. Let's hope Infinity Ward can weave it's near-cinematic magic once again.

Check out the trailer below even if you aren't into games, else you'll be sorry you missed it.

At E3 2009, Microsoft showed off a gameplay video of MW2, no other word but awesome comes to my mind after seeing it. The 7 minute long clip shows your character and a partner infiltrating, and later making a run for it from, a military base in the Arctic circle.
