Ultimate Audio Bang #27: what makes a good Call Of Duty campaign?

Gimmicks? Risks? Action?

On this week's episode of the Ultimate Audio Bang, we give our verdict on Modern Warfare 2 and its grab bag of a campaign.

To be honest, Hayden's critical thinking starts to sway me to the darkside as we touch on what actually makes COD campaigns decent and how MW2's compares to the rest. There's also a lot of chat over MW2's tendency to ditch its gimmicks, and also its surprising development of one or two, which hasn't happened... ever? To be honest, we just want more smart ways to make its excellent shooting sing.

When Ed's not cracking thugs with bicycles in Yakuza, he's likely swinging a badminton racket in real life. Any genre goes, but he's very into shooters and likes a weighty gun, particularly if they have a chainsaw attached to them. Adores orange and mango squash, unsure about olives.
