Call of Duty isn’t necessarily known for being realistic but people who developed the games for the franchise have made it known for its cinematic feel. According to Infinity Ward studio head Vince Zampella, the cinematic feel that has made the franchise so great will continue on in Modern Warfare 2.
“We go for authenticity not realism,” Zampella told Official PlayStation Magazine. “We’re not making a sim, we’re making entertainment. We want it to look real like an action movie.” Though we understand that point he’s trying to make, someone should tell him that authenticity is in fact synonymous with realism and that actions movies aren’t all that real.
