Modern Warfare 2 dials back Call of Duty's multiplayer experience for a refreshing and more classic feel, but the overall package is incomplete. [OpenCritic note: GameSpot separately reviewed the multiplayer (7) and single-player campaign (8). Their scores have been averaged.]
Square Enix tells a smaller, more personal Final Fantasy 7 tale and marries it with a smart mashup of action and RPG gameplay to deliver a must-play experience. Its PS5 version realizes the world of Midgar with stunning new detail.
