I'm not as huge CoD fan as I was years ago, but I'd say this is one of the best Call of Duty games to date, I liked the WWII styled games more, but I think Modern Warfare 2's campaign captures very well what it means to be in a war - no matrix-like action or running around guns blazing - you go out, you see your people dying around you, you kill people by the hundreds and barely make any difference Graphics are still nice, detail to object is awesome and music is great, Game-play and story are also very nice.
This one has the best looks, the best characters, and the story is just awesome! Also, the way you can shoot people up in a town just like the one i grow up in makes the whole fighting really personal, and the way the war wrecks famous landmarks is really spectacular. The game really hates it's main characters on the other hand. I guess the whole series does. Of the 6 soldiers you play as, maybe 2 survives, or something like that. The multiplayer is better then the first, and thanks to the third game, there aren't many hackers left here.
Que puedas pasar las misiones con tus amigos es la maxima dificultad es brutal. me gustan todos los call of duty para mi es el mejor juego de shooters de todos, siempre los he recomendado
I liked this game as much as Modern Warfare 1. And most of all, the mission "No Russian", that airport map really beautiful and walking with other guys shooting the public. 10/10 will do that again. This game has very high graphic which is nice and the story is interesting as well. For me, this is one of the game on my wishlist because when I was young, my computer can't support it. Now that I can play it, I totally recommend you to buy it. You won't regret it trust me. The multiplayer system is nice too, many players all the time. And mods~ Yeah~ As long as I can play it with my brother, it's a nice game.
Single play is good as it used to. All those promises that we would have a lag and cheat free multiplayer experience? Well it's all a lie. The MP has been taken over by cheaters. And I mean the blatant ones who even advertise the cheat they are using. It doesn't help that it's a peer-to-peer system either. More often then not you'll get paired up with someone who is on a 2400 baud dial-up connection. He get's 0 ping and you, well you'll be watching the respawn screen a lot.
