Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 review

In most of cases I used to enjoy the various types of online games in my systems through Xbox 360 and playstation 3, simply Call of Duty is the most well known game simply developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision, it gives a better gaming experience and I was just feeling great to watch over the review of this game.http://www.evictionresources.com/

This review is total crap. First of all, the campaign was great. Way better than COD 4's. Spec-Ops was decent, but not something this game excels in. The multiplayer is where this game truly lacks. There are no achievements whatsoever, so why would I even bother to play? Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing on multiplayer, I admit it was fun for several days, but there's no use to play for extended periods of time. Warning: side effects of playing this game's multiplayer include low, nooby Gamerscore! Bottom line: 8/10.

True, but lets just wait until Black ops, it should be fixed

This game does not deserve a 9.5. After countless hours of play, it's clear to me that the multi-player is way too unbalanced(infinite ammo grenade launchers that explode bigger? Sniper range shotguns? Sniper range knives!?) and the story is just too short with not enough...pizazz. This is just your average shooter with too many campers in multi-player, not worth the $70 or hype. This game should have got a 8.0, and I'm being generous. Splinter Cell Conviction is infinitely better then MW2, and if you don't agree with me chances re you suck at MW2 and don't play anything else ( I'm proud of my 1.92 K/D with 4 prestiges of throwing knives and USP), it took me 9 prestiges to realize that this game sucks...9 prestiges.

Carson Abbott I Think This Game Was A Great One.. I Think Calling It A "Ludicrous Story" Was Going A Little To Far, This Games Story Was Great I Think And I Loved It.

I like MW2. Not as much as COD 4 but it's up there. I wish they hurry up with the map pack already though. My stealthy friends are already getting tired of the same maps and losing interest. I don't play enough to lose interest but I would love to have new maps soon.

Honestly I think that this review is a little to harsh. Personally I really didn't care for the Multi-Player of the first Modern Warfare. I thought the story line was great, but the lack of a co-op mode was really embarrassing. I believe that the mission "No Russian" was not crass, it was a key plot detail that kept gamers drawn to the story. It was shocking to see the main character executed in the very beginning of the game. Also, this multiplayer is the reason I have an xBox. It is completely addicting. Also the new co-op mode is fantastic. About the plot, it is the same if not better than Halo 3's and that got a 10. Indeed it was cliche but it was just as good as any of the tens in 2007. _____________________________________________ you remind me of gay.

This is just my opinion but this game is mediocre at best...The single player campaign story was pretty fun to watch. Its the gameplay that I did not like. Watching the NPC's in my squad peek around corners and blind firing at the enemy made me jealous. I had to stick my entire body out of cover to get a shot off. Not very tactical. In any case, its someone elses game now.

The story while jumbled, offered many WTF moments. Spec-ops is a fun time waster,although I would like to have seen asomething closer to resembling Nazi Zombies. The multiplayer, however, is like the first Modern Warfare, only bigger, better, and more varied then its predecessor. I give it 10 out of 10 for the MP alone. Single player i would rate 8 out of 10.

I Played Modern Warfare 2 by renting it first, and I was dissappointed. The story line is like bleh, not as much action, and the game was no where near as long as the first Modern Warfare. I give it a 6.0 :( Life is a memory, a memory is for life.

@BillionCobra Hard to say, but it certainly wasn't MW2. There's an article on Gamesradar that makes some good points about the plotholes in the campaign. I still haven't played it, so take a look, get back to me and let me know if any of it resonates with you: http://www.gamesradar.com/f/modern-warfare-2s-glaring-plot-holes-exposed/a-20091120123332495077

Why is it that you have a year where you give games 10 a plenty, and this year, modern warfare gets a 9.5 because of what, story? I think the plot may be a little bad, but every campaign has parts where you get an emotional burst of sorrow or awe. When the russians opened fired on all of the civilions in front of the elevator, i was really shocked and thought about what had just happened. You can't really mark a game off for its story can you, how many games do you know that ended with a completely satisfying story without clif hangers or questions unanswered?

The game has awesome graphics. multiplayer is awesome you can customize guns add perks. customizable kill streaks is sweet. You can also get turret time on AC130 gun ship.

Please, next time you guys review the biggest game of the year, could you do with a little less plot summary. I say this as a journalist asking a fellow journalist a favor. It can't be easy to write without mentioning the plot but in the first two pages you told us a major plot twist and spoiled several key events. That said, they may have been spoiled previously in a preview article. I appreciate the work your magazine puts out but now I'm going to beat the game before I read your article, and doesn't that defeat the purpose of a review?

I agree with the post above. No Russian was an excellent level. It started the story off nicely and went from there. Towards the end, I agree the story got a little out of hand, but the gameplay was still outstanding.

hm...you know, while I haven't played the game yet (which, believe me, I'm taking into account as I type this) I read up on plenty of material and even saw a couple of youtube videos from the campaign to get a sense of what the game is all about - and that doesn't really happen unless you actually play it, but I did the best I could without $60 burning a hole in my pocket. I can also take what you say in this review into consideration when it comes to COD4 (which I did play) and compare notes across games. The half a point you took off about the campaign flaws (which I'm not whining about at all - I'm going for "intelligent argument" here, but you be the judge) has me wondering: how freaking hard must it be to top something like COD4? I mean, once you nuke someone's head from sheer awesomeness, then what's left? How about a gameplay sequence where you witness the aftermath before you fall onto your side and the screen fades to white? That's what MW2 sounds like to me, in a nutshell.

I don't understand why you say that the "No Russian" mission feels shallow and crass. It lends a key element to the story. Makarov kills the CIA member to make the world believe that America is responsible for the attack. This mission is on par with the best moments of Call of Duty 4. Infinity Ward could have made this mission just another pointless "its-shocking-so-it-must-be-good" mission. They handled it in a mature fashion, and they deserve kudos for that.
