91 - 1UP

Think of it like this: the Wii-mote has already proven it can be a good FPS controller, so what's wrong in bringing a good FPS to Wii? Modern Warfare is still an excellent game, even when it's done "good enough" on weaker technology, and like it or not, Reflex fills a niche. Maybe there's a family that only owns a Wii, but with a dad who might enjoy something a little rougher than Mario Kart.

90 - N-Europe

Treyarch have built on last year’s success and really worked hard to ensure that Wii gamers are not left out when it comes to great shooters.

90 - Meristation

Reflex is Modern Warfare at its best. It's very much the same version that we saw on PS3 and XBox 360 two years ago, but set to be played with the nunchuk and the wiimote controllers. It's graphically amazing, with an outstanding sound and the same story that we enjoyed on the original version. It's a good option to expend your money if you're looking forward to buy the best FPS of this console. 

90 - Vandal Online 

Modern Warfare Reflex is a great adaptation and a really good game. It's true there is a difference between the visuals in this game and the original, but its gameplay remains the experience which have made so many players enjoy.

90 - Nintendo Power

It’s been two years since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare dropped onto the PS3 and Xbox 360, making the Wii entry very late to the game. But Treyarch, the developer of the solid Call of Duty: World at War, has made it worth the wait. [Holiday 2009, p.85]

90 - Nintendo Life

With a strong campaign and a rock-solid multiplayer that will keep you playing well into the new year, Reflex shames its competition and delivers a great FPS package. Developers, take note: this is how you do a Wii port.

88 - Wii Brasil

The explosions aren't too impressive, the shots aren't too realist and the models aren't too detailed than the past versions, but, still, this is a genuine Modern Warfare.

88 - Game Trailers

Despite the downgraded visuals, the Reflex Edition of Modern Warfare lives up to its heritage with a strong campaign and multiplayer that will keep you up until sunrise.

85 - GameSpot

The expertly scripted and intensely exciting campaign is just as entertaining as it was two years ago on other systems, and even the occasional lapses in visual fidelity and control precision can't keep it from being a must-play for Wii shooter fans.

85 - Nintendojo

Taken as a whole, it’s hard not to like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare -- Reflex Edition. The controls are solid and the presentation (while average) is decent enough not to detract from the performance.

85 - SpazioGames

The arrival of Call of Duty Modern Warfare Reflex on the Wii console gives users the opportunity to play what is probably the most beautiful chapters of the entire saga. The single player campaign brings into our living rooms really memorable moments stuck to perfection in an epic story and exciting. Once ended, anyone with a console connected to the web will enjoy a better multiplayer ever developed. The only flaw worth mentioning can be found in a control system that requires a learning period and can not satisfy all fans of FPS classics.

83 - Gaming Age

It manages to pack in everything the original had, and the online side of things works extremely well, with no issues in finding games or lag that I could find in the many games I played.

82 - Cheat Code Central

Treyarch had its work cut out for it in bringing a high-definition smash hit like Call of Duty 4 to the Wii, but the team really pulled it off.

81 - 3DJuegos

Treyarch has managed to represent the intensity of Modern Warfare in one of the best shooters in Wii. If you couldn't play the original game, this adaptation is a must-have for you.

80 - Official Nintendo Magazine UK

Given the extra two years Treyarch had to squeeze every last drop of polish from the Wii, this is underwhelming visually. It looks okay for a Wii game - that's the dreaded caveat - but it's not even up there with Metroid Prime: Corruption. Having said that, Modern Warfare is still an excellent shooter packed with options and it should be a big player online so we can welcome it to the Wii family.

80 - Destructoid

Other than the SD graphics, variations on multiplayer, and pointer controls, this is still Modern Warfare. It's still the first game in the most popular series that this particular genre has ever seen. Not enough has changed about the game, for better or worse, to make a dent in that.

80 - Zentendo

"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex" looks and runs great on a system that shouldn't be able to handle it. If you have no other options to play the game on, it comes highly recommended. It's just a shame multiplayer isn't as fully featured as it could be.

80 - Gamervision

When compared to the Xbox and PS3 version it feels incredibly gimped, but when put up against other Wii shooters, Modern Warfare: Reflex stands out, and proves that the Wii can, indeed, keep up with the high-def generation. It just can't look as good while it does it.

80 - XGN

Are you a Wii-gamer and looking for a good shooter? Don't wait any longer and buy this game, because right now there are no better shooter available on this console!

80 - InsiderGamer.nl

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – Reflex is a great port of one of the best shooters ever made. It runs good on the Nintendo console, although there are better looking shooters, and the multiplayer is phenomenal.

79 - GameFocus

It is a bit odd that Reflex was released two years after the fact. With so many people already playing Modern Warfare 2, it probably would have been beneficial to simply do a Wii edition of that rather than bringing back the first. Once you get past the controls, you will be pleasantly surprised as to how well the game has transitioned to the Wii. If you missed out the first time around or have a strong love of the original, you should definitely give it a try.

78 - Gamers' Temple

This port isn't identical to its bigger brother, but it is damn close and that is commendable.

75 - Game Revolution

And really, this is Call of Duty: MW once more, and except for some sketchy controls, you really can't go too far wrong. If you need to shoot somebody, and for some reason have that urge while only having access to a Wii (a problem which should probably be looked into further), this will scratch that itch.

75 - ZTGameDomain

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Reflex may have more subtitles than it needs but it is a respectable port of one of the greatest first-person shooter experiences of our time.

75 - Everyeye.it

Call Of Duty: Reflex Edition, despite being equal to Modern Warfare (except for graphics) is a really good game, especially for the multiplayer component and a few new innovations.

74 - GameZone

This is still a really great game, but it's unable to truly surmount all of the difficulties that Wii puts on an FPS. If you only play one FPS on the Wii, this should be it, but it's still got many of the same problems that the genre is known for on this system.

70 - Gamer.nl

Reflex is a very decent shooter on the Wii. The multiplayer is especially convincing. Pretty much all things you’ve experienced in the version on other consoles is present here, only the weak controls and bad graphics make the game much less of a classic compared to the original. Still, it’s a little late but the release of this game on the Wii is a reason for owners of Nintendo’s console to be happy.

70 - IGN

Unfortunately, Reflex Edition on Wii just doesn’t cut it as a Call of Duty branded game or as a top-tier Wii first-person shooter. The framerate is jumpy, the pointer tracking needs some serious polish, and while most of the elements of COD4 are included, none of them are given enough fine-tuning to truly excel.

70 - Eurogamer Italy

Apart from a few technical issues and a gameplay that might be hard to master for many, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Reflex Edition proves to be a good product, whose qualities, very similar to the PS3, Xbox 360 e PC versions, will surely guarantee hours of fun to the whole Wii user base.

70 - Multiplayer.it

Is this conversion of Modern Warfare worth the wait? Frankly, no. Wii owners were expecting a more polished game, though the well-known technical limitations of the Nintendo console, while this one comes with mediocre graphics and unresponsive controls.

68 - NGamer UK

Technical and control issues mean this is far from the best way to experience it. [Christmas 2009, p.46]

65 - Game Informer

Even a clunky, hard-to-control Modern Warfare is better than no Modern Warfare, and Reflex may be fun for Wii owners who haven’t played – or seen – another version of the game. Ultimately, however, Reflex is proof that if there’s a way to make an FPS work on the Wii, no one has found it yet.

60 - GameDaily

As it stands, Modern Warfare Reflex is merely average. The multiplayer is addictive and the control options are varied, but the watered-down graphics and relentless frame rate problems keep it from being a power player. This game has seen better days, two years ago, in fact.

60 - Eurogamer

Although still passably entertaining much of the time, stood next to other shooters on the Wii it doesn't even come close to matching the look and feel of games designed specifically for the system.

50 - GameSpy

Modern Warfare may have finally found its way to the Wii, but I wish the original console controls had made the jump as well. Instead, Wii players get a game that forces heavy reliance on aim-assist (especially in multiplayer). The ultimate battle is with the controller, rather than the on-screen bad guys.

 

I guess not all reviews for MW: Reflex are negative, which I am glad to see.  Oh, and a thanks goes to Nintendogamer.  I saw his forum topic for New Super Mario Bros. Wii on Metacritic and I thought I would do one for MW: Reflex.  I will update the scores as they come in.

Here is the link for the Metacritic page for MW: Reflex if you want to read the full reviews: http://www.metacritic.com/games/platforms/wii/callofdutymodernwarfare .



Around the Network

The most famous of these critics (IGN, Game Informer, Eurogamer) are also the ones that have rated it the lowest.

Sites I have never heard of have rated it higher, but without a chip on their shoulders, aren't they more trustworthy? I don't know, but this game seems good.



Leatherhat on July 6th, 2012 3pm. Vita sales:"3 mil for COD 2 mil for AC. Maybe more. "  thehusbo on July 6th, 2012 5pm. Vita sales:"5 mil for COD 2.2 mil for AC."

The game is exactly the same as the HD version, which rated in the mid 90s. I can see docking 7-8 tenths for being a late port, but the rest of it comes from bias against the wii and graphics whores.

I would argue against that (Wii games being docked points) actually.... Wii games are reviewed ok in my opinion, HD games are rated high though.

Wii games quite often get a much bigger scale of scores I seem to find, so one reviewer might only give a 5 or 6 when some others are giving 9s for the same game.... this is more like movie/book reviews and is a good thing because reviews are opinion with a few facts thrown in, and the score itself is entirely opinion.... as such it should change dramatically for certain reviewers.

HD reviews (as a progression from game reviews last gen) have steadily had "inflated" scores because reviewers are for some reason mis-trusted by the "hardcore" gaming community if they don't agree with other reviewers.... as such websites will get far more traffic in the long run if they keep rating games high, and in line with other websites.... it's true small name sites can get a lot of hits if they drastically disagree with others, but that is a short-term spike of hits as most people will forget about them afterwords.



reviews are all over the place

No it isn't the graphics are worse, the multiplayer is worse, the controls are worse. Graphics and controls? Im sure lots of people are cool with the controls and the graphics are decent for a wii game. What mattered most was the multiplayer. It sucks, compared to the old one. So no, it isnt the same.



 

 

Damn graphic whores.



This game is incredible. The controls are perfect, the grafics are beautiful, no lag on multiplayer, too fun, identical to HD version. Compared to OTHERS WII FPS, this is the Best choice.

I don't understand the negative reviews...

^ way to use an alpha test picture that was creted using photoshop to prove your point instead of an actual screenshot, plus pictures of two different levels.
