What did we think of the Modern Warfare 2 beta?

Finally, here are our impressions of this early access! As it stands, the multiplayer of Modern Warfare 2 seems strong for us – according to what the Infinity Ward studio knows how to do – with intense, fluid action, great shooting sensations, but it is clear that we already done. a bit disappointed. Basically, the 6v6 maps don’t really take advantage of the new gameplay features (hanging and diving jumps). On many occasions, when we thought we could pull ourselves up a ladder with strong arms and the height was consistent with our operator’s reach, we had to turn back. So it’s very disappointing, but the big maps and Warzone 2.0 are probably better at this point.

If not, for the rest, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will respond with finger and eye! Even though some modes lack stakes and often end in a lot of carnage (Releasing prisoners, Search and destroy, KO) we still take and it’s always fun to participate in the war, without forgetting to use the new offensive tools and tactics available. Even the third-person mode feels more natural and fluid – with a camera that switches to first-person when focusing. For this particular mode, note that it is not possible to mix FPS and TPS players. In short, we can’t wait to see more.
