The Top of True FPSStuman31 | Nov. 25, 2013 | See all Stuman31's reviews »
Run and gun isnt necessarily my style in gaming, the main thing i want from a FPS is a good story. I would say that The Modern Warfare games are the most action heavy FPS's that i play and enjoy. And what makes the MW series work is that they have a solid story to go alongside the action. Its pretty simple. If youve played and likes other Call of Duty games, or FPS war games, then you'll enjoy the Modern Warfare games. They are the top of the class. There is a lot to be fun in coop with this aswell. Especially when your partner is on the ground and you're covering them from thousands of feet up in the air
IWNet ruins multiplayerstownd | Oct. 19, 2013 | See all stownd's reviews »
The story of MW2 is set about 5 years after the events from CoD4 and the game is a direct sequel. Imran Zakhaev is dead - the new bad guy is called Vladimir Makarov. During the very short (ca. 7 hours of playtime) campaign you change characters very often. Starting with Pvt. Joseph Allen (AKA. Alexei Borodin) from the USMC, Sgt. Gary Roach Sanderson (Task Force 141) and even Cpt. Soap MacTavish (the character you've played in CoD4). You visit many different locations - from the slums in Rio de Janeiro, over the freezing hills of Kazakhstan to the desert of Afghanistan. The whole campaign is very diversified and full of action. Modern Warfare 2 simply has one of the best and most impressive singleplayer campaigns of all FPS games so far.
Spec Ops: I think Spec Ops is really great. There are many different mission types and experiencing the game coop with a friend just makes more fun!
BUT: Why not make the whole game coop? There are only 2 missions in the SP campaign which wouldn't fit for 2 players!
Multiplayer: The multiplayer of Modern Warfare 2 isn't that great. Although you can choose your own killstreak rewards and create/customize your class-loadouts like in CoD4 the game is just filled with too much nooblike shit and plays more like a damn flight simulator than a real shooter. The gamemodes are basically the same as in CoD 4. Some new are: CTF (Capture the flag), Demolition and 1on1 Cage Fight.
There are lots of challenges to complete and 10 Prestige modes to master. The weapons are great and well balanced. Some of the new perks may be a bit overpowered and lots of the killstreak rewards just get annoying (after dying 5 times to a single harrier for example). You are able to customize your so called callsign with Titles and Icons unlocked by completing challenges.
IWnet really ruins multiplayer for PC gamers and the lack of private servers has a huge negative effect on eSports and competitive play.
Fantastic enjoyable game!Dreamy | Sept. 26, 2013 | See all Dreamy's reviews »
This is a very enjoyable game and if have already played some of the games in the series this won't disappoint you.
it's a fast-paced game where everything is about reaction and knowing how to best your opponent. The campaign is where you learn the basic and a quite good story, but still with a few flaws.. The game got good graphics and varying maps to play on! from the dessert to the forest etc..
The best about the game is the multiplayer part where they offer endless time of fun! With a lot of different game modes. Search&Destroy, Domination and Team Deathmatch just to name a few.

I was a big fan of the first Modern Warfare game, that game changed the way shooters are on current gen. Modern Warfare 2 isn't a bad game technically, but its just more of the same fast paced call of duty action which is something I'm not big on. The multiplayer was ok , always easy to find lobbies thats for sure when it comes to virtually any call of duty game. The story is of course your typical shooter , wont take too long to finish. The one thing that I do give a great deal of praise is the leveling up system and customization of the weapons. You can put together any weapon load out you want basically , different skins and different sights . Plenty of game modes to choose from such as capture the flag, deathmatch, team deathmatch and search and destory you'll find something you like
