Modern Warfare Mobilized is one of the most technically impressive DS titles of the year. It earns its place alongside the likes of Moon and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, though it looks much more like the former. Fully-rendered 3D environments are a must-have when it comes to Call of Duty, and Modern Warfare Mobilized does not shy away from that tradition. However, it's not always pleasing to look at. This is due in large part to the environments, which grow more and more stale as you advance through the campaign. The framerate takes a few hits when the action heats to a frenzy, but not usually to the point where it actively impedes your progress.
"Hwagh!" This monosyllabic expression of brief agony will assault your eardrums thousands of times over the course of Modern Warfare Mobilized's campaign. There are no alternatives; each enemy you gun down goes out with an obnoxious but mercifully short "Hwagh!" It's not really fair to begin explaining the game's audio package with this, because as a whole, it's really quite good. There's a lot of voicework in this game, and for the most part, it lives up to the high standard set by the other Call of Duty games. Explosions and weapons fire sound intense, if tinny. The music becomes a bit annoying after a while, but it's not bad enough to keep your mind off the action.
