Modern Warfare 2 (Call of Duty): Nice graphics meet thunderous sounds
At the Gamescom Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 could score with its powerful sound and surprisingly good graphics.
After the announcement that Call of Cuty: Modern Warfare 2 would run on consoles with 600p only we expected good but not overwhelming graphics during the Xbox 360 presentation of Modern Warfare 2. But despite the low resolution and QXAA the graphics neither appeared squishy nor blurry but presented sharp and filtered textures as well as anti-aliasing. Furthermore the particle system has been improved; explosions are considerably more powerful and destroy parts of the environment. The PC version should therefore offer excellent graphics due to high resolutions, AA and AF.
Highlight of the presentation, however, was the rich and powerful sound - especially the already mentioned explosions and the shots made the walls shake and offered the typical dense CoD atmosphere.
