With technology constantly improving, the Call of Duty franchise looks better than ever. Thanks to the campaign's early access period, those who pre-ordered the game are working their way through the Modern Warfare 2 campaign.

Infinity Ward’s latest single-player blockbuster reunites players with Task Force 141 and a wealth of new characters as they attempt to stop another worldwide catastrophe. During the campaign, players visit Amsterdam and after a brief stroll through the Dutch capital, the scenery is nothing short of spectacular.

To demonstrate the incredible levels of realism, one fan compares the game to the real world and the likeness is uncanny.

The comparison comes from Call of Duty content creator Dan Allen Gaming, who splices footage from the mission and someone walking through the city to compare the two.

Everything ranging from the detailed pattern on the curved windows to the placement of the dustbin next to the bridge is replicated with incredible accuracy.

Many believe the Modern Warfare 2 campaign is one of the best in the entire franchise, citing the incredible realism, storyline, and innovative mechanics as reasons why Infinity Ward’s latest campaign hits the mark. One fan goes a step further, claiming the single-player is “the best campaign in COD history.”

The campaign comes with plenty of twists and turns, leaving the door open for a third instalment in the current Modern Warfare trilogy. In a recent IGN interview, head writer Brian Bloom reveals the developer wants to take a closer look at the origin of the enigmatic Ghost character. Perhaps the next Infinity Ward release will showcase how the character earns the now-iconic mask.

With Infinity Ward’s next Call of Duty a while away, players can reunite with Ghost in the Modern Warfare 2 campaign right now before multiplayer launches on October 28.
