A Real Soldier on the Most Realistic Shooter

Back to the topic at hand, he asserts that the tutorial in Modern Warfare 2 that takes place in Baghram Airfield is the most realistic setting that he's seen so far:
However, Modern Warfare 2's gunplay is far from realistic, with movement that is "far too fast and crisp", weapons that "snap into view when aiming", and enemies who just "stand in the open just begging to be shot".
Oddly enough, he admits, the futuristic Killzone 2 gets his seal of approval for making you feel "weighed down not only by your equipment but also by your weapons" and seeing characters "actually bring their weapon into the shoulder when they look down the sights". The lack of ammo is true to life as well since "you don't know how long you're going to have to last until you can get a resupply", and the camaraderie you have with your teammates is much more tangible than "faceless names that are immediately replaced", like in Modern Warfare 2:
