Whole Lotta Fun. 0

One of the biggest game in video game history, Modern Warfare 2 has proven to be quite the titanic, and controversial games, we've seen in a while.  StoryModern Warfare 2, oddly enough, starts off were Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare left off. Set in a near-future world, the Ultra-nationalists seize control of Russia and declare Imran Zakhaev, whom you killed at the end of CoD4, a martyr, having a statue of him in the middle of Red Square. Meanwhile, Vladimir Makarov, one of Zakhaev's former stud...

Big Bucks does not equal good game 0

 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the sequel to the immensely popular first person shooter Call Of Duty 4 and after seeing both the critical and commercial success of its predecessor it is clear that the publishers have invested a lot of money into the sequel. While trying to extend the story of CoD 4 and build upon the multiplayer it seems that Activision and IW have had dollar signs in their eyes and have ended up making a shallow and unsatisfying blockbuster of a story and an imbalanc...

Modern Warfare 2 0

  Possible the biggest release of 2009, the much awaited sequel to one of 2007's biggest seller, Modern Warfare 2 has already sold over 5 million copies in just the US and the UK. But is the game really worthy of all this fanfare? Let's first start with the story. STORY: The story starts off 5 years after the first Modern Warfare, with the Ultra Nationalist having gained power in Russia even with the effort of the United States Marines and the British SAS. The story is full of holes though qui...

Mind-Blowing. 0

Yes I think we all absolutely loved Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, well most of us anyway, and making a game better than that would be a downright amazing achievement. Crazily enough Infinity Ward has somehow managed to do this and more.  Sure Modern Warfare 2 seems a little over blown and incredibly gamey in points. And sure there are the inevitable glitches in the Multiplayer mode, but even with these, this game is the funnest experience I have had with an controller in my hands. The Multipla...

EXTREMELY Addictive 0

A lot of anticipation has lead up to this release and only on rare occasion like this does the hype end up to be justified.Picked up the game at midnight with my buddies and, without a doubt, during the first hour of playing did I have to say aloud that the game was justifiably PERFECT.Not only did Infinity Ward introduce some new jaw-dropping features like the earnable online airstrikes, but from the graphics to the engine mechanics, the game has proven to be second-to-none in providing fast-pa...

MW2 Review. 0

I had been waiting for months for this to hit my Xbox but I was still very skeptical about whether or not this would re-raise the bar for FPS' like CoD 4 did. This game rocks...... It is better than CoD 4 in almost every way.... Despite the fact the gameplay remains the same it feels very different as there are tons of changes that are very exciting when you see them first time. The graphics have been improved by a long way and tiny things such as the way glass breaks when you shoot it and thing...

Immersive, addictive, over-the-top action 0

  With its predecessor being arguably one of the best shooters in recent times, it was always safe to assume that : Modern Warfare 2 would generate a huge amount of pre-release hype. As well as the anticipation spilling over on internet forums there were petitions from PC users unhappy with the lack of server support, news coverage around the world when gameplay footage of the infamous airport level was leaked, Hollywood blockbuster-style premieres for the launch of the title and lines of fans...

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it" 0

 The expression "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" should have been the tagline to Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2. Let's be honest here. 2007's Call of Duty 4 was literally as far as any developer could possibly go to relight the dim candle of innovation in the first person shooter market. While it did the obvious thing by improving the cinematic quality of the gameplay and in-effect enhance the immersion of the campaign the multiplayer made the biggest change of all. Infinity Ward's in...

MW2 is better than COD4 in everyway possible 0

  Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Most sequals tend to not live up to there predissors. Modern Warfare 2 is the acception because its a better game then Call of Duty 4 in almost every single way possible.Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 takes place 5 years after the events of COD4. A new russian terrorist Macorov was a person that  Imran Zakhaev (The person you last killed in COD4) had as a back up plan. You mainly play as Gary 'Rouch' Sanderson in Task Force 141 and fight along side with Chara...

disappointing 0

so disappointing. awful single player, even veteren difficulty was so easy that the single player is easy to complete in an afternoon. as for the multiplayer, i wasnt a fan of cod4 multiplayer so this didnt do too much for me either, it just looked like a more polished version. the new addition of special ops was interesting and i liked the idea a lot and thats why i awarded its one star because if it wasnt for the special ops i wouldve given this game 0/5 stars as i feel this game is just an ov...

Value by numbers 0

I distinctly remember the very first time I played Call of Duty. I was sneaking through Normandy after an airdrop, I lit some beacon, an alarm went off and complete chaos erupted - first person shooter campaigns were never the same after that.   Modern Warfare 2 attempts to take that very moment and stretch it over the entirety of its 5 to 7 hour campaign. It's as if the developers had a mandate to ensure that at any given moment there should be as much going on visually an audibly as possible. ...

One of the top 5 greatest games ever... 0

I've played games for a long time, and I've played all of the greats from Starcraft to Half Life 2 to GTA IV to WOW to Resident Evil 4, but now here we are with Modern Warfare 2, the most anticipated game of the decade, will it live up to its expectations, all the hype, all the drama surrounding it; was it worth it???  YES  Visuals: Best multi-system graphics ever  The visuals are astounding. The environments that are created are really amazing, whether its debris flying through the air, or snow...

Leaves you in Awe. 0

While i liked Call of Duty 4, this one has to be one of the best military shooters with very competitive online multiplayer that makes me mad every time i lose! It's still a great game with a great story behind it. Modern Warfare 2 really did impress me because at first i thought it was another Call of Duty with more guns, but it had all that plus new graphics and a great story. While the campaign is great to play and Spec Ops is also, the multiplayer is what had me addicted, and since it's a ch...

Warning! Long Length and Possible Spoilers 0

 (The only potential spoilers within have been shown in various trailers and so therefore should not be class as spoilers - however if you think that you may have you enjoyment of the game ruined, I reccomend you skip past the second and third paragraphs. However you will miss some of the best writing in the entire thing) I feel sorry for developers who make hit games. Not only do you get some fat cat in a suit meowing out orders that a sequel must be made but you also must deal with the pressur...
