I saw this one coming.
I wasn’t shocked at all to learn that Activision would be in the process of making a Modern Warfare 2 for DS. But hold up, what’s this? Modern Warfare: Mobilized?
It’s been told that the storyline will be designed to “compliment” the Modern Warfare 2 campaign. Also included with the game will be a six-player “online battles” mode, and even a survival mode, alot like World at War. Once you have stroked through the campaign mode, you will be able to switch into “Arcade mode” where you will be forced to play against the clock, with a running score.
An online shopping website has apparently posted up the game for £24.99. It’s not known if the price is true, but I would much prefer if Activison just left the DS price alone (although I don’t see myself buying it anyway.)
I found an opinion from a gamer who had played Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare on the Nintendo DS, he states multiple times about how the game was just not good enough:
“I found CoD4 on the DS boring, all you do is move the aiming dot over the head of the enemy and pull the trigger, no real variation. You can’t fight in any other way either because body shots do only slightly more damage than cussing into the microphone so running the gun at full auto is nonsense. There’s no real variation to combat, nothing about moving yourself into good positions or dodging attacks, all guns seem the same plus-minus minor differences (certainly not on the level of Unreal Tournament though that may be expecting too much). I wish it’d at least make a difference whether you’re using an assault rifle or an SMG but with full auto firing being unviable you only go for headshots with SMGs too. Plus CoD4 DS committed the cardinal sin of having the story conveyed via audio on a portable system that you play muted 95% of the time.”
With that being said, do you think that Modern Warfare Mobilized will rise up with vast improvements, or are Activison just milking for some extra cash?
