About this product
- Product InformationIn Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, developer Infinity Ward aims to ratchet up the intense first-person gunplay, graphical verisimilitude, and deep multiplayer experience that won the original title wide acclaim from critics and consumers alike, while at the same time adding to the overall package with the new, fast-paced "SpecOps" mode. The single-player campaign picks up where Call of Duty 4 ended, with gamers once again descending into the shadowy world of terrorists, arms dealers, and nationless armies. Players take on the role of Sergeant Gary "Roach" Anderson, an elite member of the multinational Task Force 141 and subordinate of one of Call of Duty 4's protagonists, John "Soup" MacTavish.
Task Force 141 is on the trail of Vladimir Makarov, a maniacal disciple of Imran Zakhaev, who has used the death of his mentor as a means of expanding his own base of power. Missions find gamers working off sketchy intelligence as they battle whiteout conditions in the jagged mountains of Russia and Kazakstan, shuffle though expansive desert and cave environments in Afghanistan, and weave between City of God-like Brazilian slums, where misfires result in dead civilians and a failed mission. As was the case in Call of Duty 4, Modern Warfare 2 supplies players with the most technologically advanced weapons, vehicles, and accoutrements available, including SCAR-H rifles, snowmobiles, and heartbeat sensors.
The new "SpecialOps" mode brings gamers more than 20 fast-paced missions inspired by the frenzied mid-fuselage gunfight at the end of Call of Duty 4. Players find themselves racing snowmobiles, battling a huge number of enemies at once, or simply attempting to get in and out of a building without dying, and missions can be played solo, in local split-screen co-op, or online with a friend. Those looking for more online action can also take on the "Free-for-All," "Demolition," "Domination," "Search & Destroy," "Capture the Flag," and "Team Deathmatch" multiplayer modes.
The much-lauded RPG-like system of doling out experience points and unlockable rewards returns in Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer modes, but Infinity Ward has also included a number of new wrinkles to spice up the action. Maps are designed to be both more expansive and more vertical; weapons feature a variety of new attachments; new "Pro Perks" let players gain more stopping power, greater speed, or automatic health boosts; and gamers who manage to string together a number of kills gain access to the new "killstreaks" system, which lets them call for seven different kinds of heavy-duty support, including supply drops, helicopter gun attacks, and unmanned aerial vehicle strikes.

Buy A Tent Too, You're Gonna Need To Set Camp
I love first person shooters. Call of duty has the same game play and probably always will. Don't expect much different from previous games. More perks which now evolve into better perks. You can choose your 3 kill streaks and even end the game with a nuke if you camp well enough and kill 25 people before dying. The biggest difference you'll notice is the mass amount of camping areas the game has to offer. If you like playing games like halo (where you can take 2 + people head on at a time with your skill at aim and strafing mixed with some variation of cleverness) You will not be using the same logic in this game. You will almost never down 2 people who are facing you with just your aim. Just expect to set up camp and hold a gun down some hallway. Otherwise, you will move a few steps and die by someone who is.
Pros: You get to chose your 3 kill streaks, Your perks evolve, Maps are large, CAMPAIGN IS AMAZING AND WELL DONE!
Cons: CAMP CAMP CAMP, SPAWN KILLED, Addictive game with no satisfaction, Prestige doesn't get you anything and your skill isn't measured by prestiging, you just have to play a bunch. If you don't have certain perks you can easily get spotted by a UAV or shot down off spawn by any number of flying objects. Game play isn't consistent
Overall, the game is fun to mess around with but can get frustrating quickly.Read full review

I recomend this game to basicaly to every one that can pick up a controler.
personally I love this game, from its high pace game play to its endless fun and annoyance with nood tubes. I think that MW2 is the best COD ever since, well I Can't think of a better COD before this game and that shows How much time went into this game to make it amazing. Now yes this COD is not innovative at all besides some individual details, but that's how I like my COD, cooked the same every time. I can not descried how much time I've put into this game from staying up until 2 owning noobs with the RPD or ACR and how many countless hours I've spent having tons of fun trying to quick scope my friends. But I digress, this game is one of my top 10 games next to Forza 4 and BF4, I recommend anyone that can pick up a controller to get this game because you don't know the meaning of video game entertainment until you have played this game.Read full review

For Under 10$ in 2014 it's a fun game to pick up for a few rounds. 6/10
Fans of Call of Duty will either love or hate this game. Much of the community has diluted since the release of several Call of Duty and other FPS games throughout the following years. Online gaming may take a few moments to find a non 'Team Death-Match' game. The game itself is mostly Multi-Player online based, as the Single Player mode only lasts for a few hours on any of the difficulties provided. The DLC (Map Packs still run around 15-20$, in 2014 which is a plentiful years since release. Lastly the infamous 'Zombie' mode does not make any appearance in this COD tittle.

BLKHALO's Mw2 Review.
I have been a big fan of call of duty ever since I purchased call of duty 4: modern warfare. With my passion for CoD4's online multiplayer and videos I have seen of Infinity Ward showing inside scoops on MW2's online, I couldn't wait for the release of MW2. Once I had received it in the mail I opened it and right in my Xbox it went. First thing I did was start the campaign, at a lower difficulty of course to get a feel of the game. Later I Returned to beat it on Veteran difficulty. The campaign was amazing, but truth be told, wasn't a challenge to me. I expected there to be a mission like CoD4's "Mile High Club", but there wasn't. With that said, the campaign is still decent however.
Online multiplayer is the main reason I play Call of Duty. CoD4 kept me on the edge of my chair for a long time, but MW2 on the other hand, has gotten me shamefully addicted and I find I lose track of time easily playing it.
I love the vast variety of customization in its online, all the way from its newly found perks, to its unlockable titles and emblems. I have had hours of fun playing with friends and family. The online takes a little getting used to as it is much different than CoD4's online, but you can quickly get the hang of it.
I definitely recommend this game to the First Person Shooter fan, as well as its predecessor, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
My personal rating - 4.8 /5
