Screenshots of this Wii port of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare were not flattering at all. It looks like a PSP game in some of those screenshots. We laughed and were all very skeptical about Treyarch’s porting capabilities. But after having seen some of the footage of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Reflex, I’m pleasantly surprised with how it looks. It’s not that bad.
It’s not that bad when you’re comparing a Youtube video of it against your memory, but once you stack it side by side? You can see the cuts they made. You can’t tell by the video, but the game is actually running at 30 FPS. Is it a huge loss? I don’t think so. Especially considering that if you’re really serious about Modern Warfare, you’ll be playing it on the HD consoles anyways.
If you’re curious about how the multiplayer looks, check out Farmhouse Media’s video of it. Ignore the fact that he’s not very good and that he neglected to use iron sights.
I promised not to talk about Modern Warfare 2 this week and I kept to that.
