2D remake of Modern Warfare 2

An indie game developer known as CalbiTheZebra has created a wonderful 2D interpretation of Modern Warfare 2, last year’s $1.5 billion behemoth from Activision and Infinity Ward. Though short, the game features loads of variety (snowmobiles! helicopters!) and includes memorable locations and blockbuster moments from the original game. And the best part of all? You can download and play it yourself, for free, RIGHT NOW.

We know that a third-person action version of Call of Duty is in development at Activision. Maybe Mr. TheZebra’s side-scroller will convince them that a 2D retro edition is a good idea too. To try 2DMW2 for yourself, download it here. While you're waiting for it to download, check out these screens.

    I downloaded and played it anyway. Nice idea to translate this exciting yet simple storyline into such a brief game. And it did get me interested in the real game, should be fun to play. I'm planning to upgrade to a better gaming rig sometime this year, so it's going to happen.

    This looks cool and at least they are not chraging for it like Actvision

    Not sure if I should download this. I haven't played the original MW2 yet (my PC is probably too slow for it by now), and this 2D game could spoil it for me. The trailer already gave some stuff away.

    An article on sidescrollers based on first person shooters might be interesting. I can think of at least 3 others.

    This looks hilarious. It reminds me much of the Halo Zero game that was 2D as well.
