Well the review is in for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and I'm not surprised. The fans (and pretty much every gamer in the world) wanted this game to get a perfect review, and their hype shows in the 9.75 GI has given it. You've all transformed the game into something too big for its own box. Just goes to show that you have to give every game the benefit of the doubt. Lowering your expectations for a game you love will make it seem oh so much better when you finally get a chance to play it. I've been doing it for years, and continue to do so with games like Bioshock 2 and Assassin's Creed 2. Sometimes it's just better to think your game sucks, so that you can be proven wrong when it comes out. Trust me, the game will then be so much sweeter. But then again, a 9.75 is a pretty *** good score. Hopefully Bioshock 2 can chin up to the bar set by Bioshock 1...
Good job Infinity Ward, time to chalk up another victory. Now think up something new while you enjoy your caviar and imported wine.
