After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

    COD: Modern Warfare 2 is a second installment in the Modern Warfare series and set sometime after the conclusion of COD4. The game is a very fast moving first person shooter that is known for its incredible single player story line and strong online multiplayer community. MW2 is one of the top grossing games of all time. Technology wise Modern Warfare 2 is based on DirectX 9 technology and really shows that game developers can still make incredible looking games from older technology.
    The following settings were used for each resolution. No Anti-Aliasing we used during the testing's.

    1440x900: Low
    1366x768: Normal
    1024x768: High
    MW2 is based on the DirectX 9 API, but still is very demanding on many of the newer video cards. The Sapphire Radeon HD5450 holds up for the most part at the lowest resolution, but folds when the resolutions start going up.   Though for a card that is on the lowest part of the price spectrum this is not that bad.
