CoD Modern Warfare 2 Gameplay Video Goes Viral For Its Stunning Life-Like Graphics

The holy grail for video game graphics is to reach the point in which art or representation is so lifelike that it is difficult to tell the difference between the two. Well, it seems like Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2's developer Infinity Ward is getting pretty darn close. Some of the short gameplay available of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2's single-player on the Amsterdam level is extremely lifelike.

Ppeople can jump into a short bit of the single-player campaign in the upcoming title thanks to some pre-order early access and it looks gorgeous. The mission takes players through a section of the Netherlands city of Amsterdam, and it's somewhat hard to tell the difference from some live videos recreating the scene on location.

Call of Duty has had many real-world locations in the past, and there has been some comparison to them. For example, the map Piccadilly is based on Piccadilly Circus in London. It has been extremely rare for it to be hard to tell the difference from the real world like this, though. Between the high-quality textures, the water effects, the weather effects, and extremely detailed modeling, we'd say the only thing that might make you remember you're in a video game is the character models. That's okay though, we don't need anyone thinking this is real, no matter how real it looks.
