The most awaited game of the year, Modern Warfare 2 definitely bags the award for the best game of 2009. In 2006, Activision introduced a revolution in the First Person Shooter game industry by initiating the Modern Warfare series. Pre-empting the success of COD Modern Warfare (2006), Activision had already decided to release its sequel somewhere this year. As a result, not only did Activision make tons of money, but it also satisfied countless hardcore gamers. Come to think of it, their formula worked; Activision made a deliberate attempt to abruptly end Modern Warfare, leaving the users aching for more. Now, Modern Warfare 2 has become something of a gaming phenomenon attracting both seasoned and rookie gamers. With vast multiplayer content and an addictive Special Ops mode, the game has lot to offer. However, the campaign story has been cut short like the prequel. Maybe, Activision really wanted to reuse their successful formula.
Modern Warfare 2 does not disappoint. Activision made history with Modern Warfare and with the exhilarating sequel, the series has gained a legendary status. With stunning graphics and thrilling gameplay, this game has easily bested all first person shooter games in history. Though the addictive action remains the same at its core, there are a host of new elements that make matches more accessible, more strategic, and more rewarding.
The campaign plot essentially picks up where the first installment left off. This time a new ultranationalist renegade bent on creating social unrest, with the world as his battleground. Yet again, players step into the shoes of security forces personnel as they face challenging missions across the globe, from an Afghan province to the White House, in Washington D.C. Gamers get to play diverse roles; from an undercover CIA operative to a marine in a special task force, the game covers almost all echelons in warfare. Though completing the campaign is an intensely satisfying and exciting endeavor, you may not feel very triumphant when all is said and done. Modern Warfare 2 features some dark plot turns, and your missions sometimes have drastic unintended consequences. In one mission in particular, you infiltrate a terrorist cell and are called upon to do the kind of things that terrorists do. What follows is a neutered attempt at portraying the grim reality of terrorism, and concessions are put in place to keep the plot from getting too dark.
Following the benchmark set by its prequel, Modern Warfare 2 had a lot to live up to in terms of gameplay and content. The missions are enjoyable, yet challenging. Some of them are so engaging that they really give you an adrenaline rush. The diverse environments partly contribute to the ‘wow factor’ of these missions. Also present are some articulate missions that require something other than the essential targeting and firing skills. The modern artillery provided in the game is nothing short of impressive. The game aims to provide users with the experience of using state-of-the-art weaponry. From the M4A1 Assault Rifle to the M249 Machine Gun with Heart beat sensor, players can experience the evolution of technology with time.
The graphics of course, are brilliant; the exotic mission environments look extremely realistic and every detail seems to come alive during gameplay. In order to achieve such jaw-dropping graphics, a graphics card with considerably high memory recommended. My 1GB graphics card gave me an unforgettable thrilling
I will not be speaking on the Multiplayer or the controversy there. But, I get these kind of games for the single player modes. I already have a few games I play online and not looking to add to that.
That being said, they've expanded some great things into the single player modes. First off, the variety of guns and attachments for them is huge. Lots of new weapones scope and not, red dot, over under AUG w/shotgun and others like that. Some missions even give you access to call in the AC130 or other air support as well as different weapons with something of a sonar type attachment that sends a pulse out in front of you and lights up any enemy's close enough to catch the pulse. Great thing for the snow levels w/ low visibility.I even like the way the character holds the knife in the opposite hand that supports the gun hand when using a pistol. Very smooth play and great graphics w/o having to have a $4k machine. I'm playin this on my s939 athlon 64 system w/ an Opteron 175, 2g of DDR (not ddr2 or 3), and an HD 3850 512m pciE vid card on the old Asus a8n-sli deluxe. Still runs on my 19" at high/very high stettings getting upwards of 80 fps and no less than 30 at max load.
Aside from this, they've added the Special Ops mode. It's very cool, something like training mode. You can run various scenarios from evasion, to sniping, to rescue ops, etc. There's a good 15 or 16 different ones if I'm not mistaken each with 3 levels to go through. So, you can run through these and really work out your skills and then jump back into the game and put 'em to use. Tons of variety and playability as well as replayability. They've also alllowed you to breach previously unbreachable walls/obstacels w/explosives giving it a much more open feel.
Great game. I'm normally done with a game like this and just going back and upping the difficulty. But, I am around 8% on the story mode and 20% on the spec ops missions. And then, if you wanted, you can even run these in split screen or via internet with a friend. I love the depth of content and replayability or I guess just playability since I haven't finished anything yet to "replay".
1000% satisfied. I'd buy it again! ;)
The single player story for Modern Warfare 2 is absolutely stunning. Infinity Ward has kept true to their style of game development by once again making sure you never leave first person view. I enjoy cinematic scenes, but the level of intensity that you get throughout the campaign whilst always being in first person view is great. Modern Warfare 2 is a direct sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and picks up right where Call of Duty 4 left off. Modern Warfare 2 adds a lot more to the campaign than Infinity Ward’s last title, including graphics as well as unique missions that you should definitely experience for yourself. The graphics in Modern Warfare 2 are the best I have seen so far in a Call of Duty game while keeping it smooth with a constant 60 frames per second. The detail of the environments and the character models are beautiful. Some of the scenes throughout the campaign are really breathtaking as they are action packed, and keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time. To add to that, there are many surprises and twists throughout the game that no one will see coming, making this story an amazing action packed thriller. Although the campaign is amazing, it was fairly brief, lasting around 6-8 hours depending on the difficulty. And speaking of difficulty, I would add that the game was a lot easier on Veteran than any of the other Call of Duty games.
Now for the good stuff; multiplayer. Multiplayer for Call of Duty 4 is mostly what made it so popular and in Modern Warfare 2 it gets even better. The addition of many killstreaks and having the ability to customize which ones you want ,with a max of 3 available at once, is where this game’s multiplayer action really differs from Call of Duty 4. Even in objective modes like Search and Destroy, you can gain killstreaks throughout the course of many rounds, granted you don’t die at the end of the round. And if you try using you stealth class from Call of Duty 4 or World at War in this game you might not be safe with the addition of Heartbeat sensors as an attachment to certain weapons which detect movement. Of course there is a perk to counter that though. Many perks from Call of Duty 4 have been made into attachments or equipment. There are many additions to the game that will really let you personalize your class to your liking, much more so than the previous Call of Duty games. I saw a lot of people running around with many different class setups instead of seeing everyone with the same 5 as in the other games. You can now unlock titles and emblems for yourself that show up in game. Modern Warfare 2 has added more modes as well. Here are the new additions to the game:
Demolition – Attack & Defend two bombsites (Similar to Sabotage with full re-spawns)
3rd Person Teams – Third Person Perspective with Team Deathmatch, Domination, CTF and Demoliton
Hardcore Ricochet Search and Destroy – Hardcore S&D where friendly fire will kill you
3rd Person Cage Match – 1v1 Deathmatch in Third Person
The added guns to the game are also cool, and the models for them are extremely detailed. With all the additions to multiplayer, it can take a little getting used to but is extremely fun.
A MUST BUY AND WILL BE ON EVERYONES CHRISTMAS LIST
RATED M (MATURE)
This game is a great buy at $40.00 or less new. Bought mine for $29.99 new! ($59.99 MSRP for new.) Step into the depths of 21st century warfare with Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 for PC. Call of Duty built it's success with World War 2 (WWII) games but evolved to the "Modern Warfare" scene with Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare. Modern Warfare 2 is a sequel of Modern Warfare 1 which starts after the antagonist (bad guy) of MW1 is "removed" from power of Russia. MW2 has a short campaign which I completed in 5 hours total on the "normal" setting. The difficulty settings range from; Easy, Normal, Hardened, and Veteran with veteran being the hardest. The game also comes with a new game mode called "Special Ops". This game mode has missions that have to deal with the events in MW1 and MW2. Completing these missions will unlock "Steam Achivements" which are like the "Xbox 360 Achivements" and the "Playstation 3 Trophys". The graphics are great even with a average pc. But those graphics come at a price. The games total memory needed is a whopping "14" Gigabytes(GB). Still, it's worth it! You will need 2 things to install it.on your PC. First, an internet connection. Second, a program called free program called "Steam". You can download Steam at http://www.store.steampowered.com/ First of all, when you play MW2 online for free,you will notice that there are NO DEDICATED SERVERS! The game connects with IWNet which looks to me kind of like Xbox Live™ when playing online. Using steam feels like that too. You can send messages to other MW2 pc gamers or anyone that uses "Steam Powered" games. You can voice chat with other gamers that have microphones. You can even "Party Up" which means you and some online friends can come together and play the same game online. Even be on the same team! All in all, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 for PC is to me a good buy for the right price. If anyone buys the game and wants to play the game online with me, my "Steam" name is MoNeYINPHX. I hope this review has helped you and I hope you make the right decision to or not to buy the game.

P.S. Make sure to buy the game new because as soon as the game's product key becomes activated, that game can only be played and installed to that Steam User.
For anyone interested in first person shooter games, MW2 is as good as any. It's an older game, so you can get your feet wet in this genre without plunking down $60 on the latest version to try it out. It has free online multiplayer mode (no subscription fees), as well as a single player campaign and Spec Ops mode which can be played alone (for most missions) or with a friend in co-op mode (a few of the spec-op missions are co-op only). There is still a large on-line following, so finding multiplayer games is not a chore like some older games. The only flaw is that there seems to be a lot of hackers in the multiplayer mode which can be frustrating, but I have enjoyed playing this game immensely and would recommend it to anyone interested in a bargain FPS game. The diversity of weapons, classes, styles of play; along with the perks, upgrades and replay value makes MW2 a value and must have for any military based FPS gamer.
