I'm not a fan for FPS's and I'm esspecially not a fan of war/military games. However, I had a lot of fun with Modern Warfare Reflex.
MWR shows that the Wii can really play with the 360 and PS3 in terms of game content. I'd like to see developers get more time and money so that Wii editions of games get the same treatment as their 360 and PS3 counterparts. I can't see MWR running on the PS2, but we see the Wii essentially get PS2 ports again and again.
Back to the game: The online is smooth and pretty much lag-free. The controls are pretty intuitive and don't really hinder the experience. Holding the A button will lock the screen and allow to you move your reticule around without worrying about steering your point of view in that direction. In other Wii FPS's, I'd often accidently turn my character when trying to aim towards the corner of the screen-- simply not a problem here. Bravo. Any Wii owners who want a fun, online multiplyer game, this may be your answer.

Definitely a game worth buying. Great graphics, altogether an a+ game...to buy. When I rented it I was not aware I would have to go out and buy a $20 gun just to play. Took me a week to find the dod gamned gun.....would be nice if gamefly told you which accessories you need to have in order to play the game. Its bad enough you dont even get the book of instructions and controls for them.
