Sometimes I hate being right. The Wii is no stranger to long delays in getting good games, or to fast and dirty ports. What makes this one sting so bad is that the potential for Modern Warfare was so high. Because of the quality of the original title, the Modern Warfare branding is almost as powerful as the Call of Duty branding itself. Modern Warfare will share a place in history alongside Quake, Goldeneye, and Halo.
The Wii version, on the other hand, deserves the rating IGN gave it — falling below the barely known PSP-port MOH:H2. This despite the fact that Modern Warfare had a proven sales record, a publisher bigger than some countries, a game engine already in place, an experienced developer team that did well with Call of Duty: World at War, and oh yeah, TWO YEARS to get it right; but it can't do the one basic thing every FPS on Wii has to do — control well. Between framerate issues screwing with precision, and lack of polish all over, this mediocre game is a slap in the face to Wii owners and to a great underlying game.
Frak you Activision. If you want my money, re-release the game in a year when you've actually finished it.
