The characters are easily one of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare IIclear strengths. The game features sharp voice acting that brings its cast to life, along with an eerie, valley-shattering visual fidelity with excellent facial animation. It deeply uplifts the presentation of these characters and the story. But while you might think that the skull-bedecked ghost gets all the attention, one of the game’s new antagonists, Valeria, is deservedly celebrated.
A little over half Modern Warfare II‘s campaign, Valeria is introduced to then-absent cartel boss “El Sin Nombre” as “personal Sicaria”. As the player, you meet her in an interrogation scene where you are warned not to lie to her (seriously, don’t). And she’s quick to reveal why, before pressing you for questions about events from a few missions earlier. Without hesitation in showing who’s boss, Valeria physically threatens one of her own men before drawing her gun and directing her attention to you and the other interrogator with a playful “Niños!”
No question. Valeria steals every scene she’s in Modern Warfare II. presented by Maria Elisa Camargo, Valeria’s presence is a narrative gravity, and she can bite you through with razor-sharp lines of bilingual dialogue. And she has a great backstory too. As a former Mexican soldier and former comrade of the protagonist Alejandro, the chemistry between the two is right.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Valeria gets love all over social media. Camargo himself tweeted a behind-the-scenes look at the mo-cap with a thank you to the community for the love.
And the Love is palpable. People explain themselves official Valeria Stanswhile others Demand developer Infinity Ward do them a playable operator in the multiplayer of the game. Videos showing their best scenes are pours out on Twitter and tick tock how.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II can got off to an excruciatingly slow start, but the second half of the game certainly has its memorable moments. A good part of that is thanks to Valeria, who definitely needs to be a bigger part of this series to move forward.
