Well CoD ModWar for the wii... what can I say awsome game.
I have recently read some reviews indicating that the controls are to hard in the Call of Duty reflex version for the Wii. Let me assure you after about 20 minutes of play I had the controls down pat, and any Wii user will tell you the same.
I have also read about the graphical complaints (Wii versus 360/PS3) well that is true. In Call of Duty Modern Warfare for the Wii the graphics are not as high quality as the 360 or PS3. However, the sacrifice in graphics is made up for with very in depth user interface, which makes you feel as though you are the character. Giving you the ability to lean side to side with your nunchuck, and being able to tilt your weapon side to side as well. The storyline mirrors that of the 360 & PS3 versions to the tee. Multiplayer in CoD ModWar is awsome!! is is by far the best feature of the game, you can easily loose 3 or 4 hours in the online action.
Although Nintendo has rolled out an excellent gaming experiance, it will only get 8 out of 10 stars from me. While I enjoyed every minute of gameplay, the first little bit was straining to come to grips with the control layouts.
This game is a remake special edition for the Wii. Meaning it's and older game. There are several problems all shooters for the Wii have. Like accuracy with the Wii remote or accurate calibration. But this isn't the game's fault. It's very hard to have a good gun game for the Wii. However C.O.D Modern Warfare Reflex proves that there are pioneers out there. It's masterfully redone with graphics that by Nintendo standard are very good. The plot starts you off with you as a British S.A.S operative. You will play more as "Soap" Mac Tavish,British S.A.S, more than Paul Jackson,American U.S.M.C. Just a heads up should you prefer the Marines more. The creative missions and realistic possibilities are accurate and amazing. The only reason I didn't give it a TEN was that I would very much like to choose which Elite Force I like better. This is a keeper for the Wii. All things considered it's an awesome game!!
Treyarch has gone beyond the "Call of Duty" with this title (no pun intended)! It's hard to distinguish the graphical assets between the more powerful Xbox 360 & PS3 versions, with this here Wii version.
