This is one of the best COD games ever! It had a great single player, spec ops, and multiplayer. In multiplayer you will run into some cheaters though. Also the more people buy and play this game the less of an issue the cheaters will be. I highly recommend this game to anyone that loves shooters.

Literally the best game to 1v1 rust some scrublords in, and practice your 360 noscope and quickscoping skills.

I've only played around 300 hours in multiplayer, but it seems okay.

I'd give it a solid 5/7.

A really fun game for people who like FPS's. You can play on a variety of maps on a great and competitive multiplayer with friends or play a really fun campaign. It has the classic COD feel and isn't hard to figure out. It doesn't have the best graphics because it is an older game but that doesn't take away from the game at all. Anyone who likes COD games and FPS's I would highly recommend this game to you or anyone who wants to try COD out.

Campaign/Story Mode
I've barely played this. Don't know why, but the first missions didn't really take me into the campaign.

Special Ops
Pretty fun when playing with someone else, but boring as hell when playing alone.

Multiplayer
I've played BO2 on my pc and Ghosts, MW3 and WAW on my ps3 and from what I've seen and what I know, MW2's multiplayer is better than the earlier mentioned multiplayers.

Overall Score
7.2 out of 10

Modern Warfare 2 is pretty fun for how old it is. The multiplayer is really fun and I really enjoyed the campaigns storyline. Modern Warfare 2 is one of the best Call of Duty games released.

The game runs really well. You get a small amount of graphic controls but you should be able to play if your computer is not that old. The default control options are really bad; I recommend changing them.

The multiplayer in Modern Warfare 2 (MW2) is really solid. Even though its old I have no problems jumping into a full game of Team Death match. The game is still well and alive. There are some cheaters but I don’t see the that often anymore.

Since this is an Activision game, MW2 is full of DLC. I would recommend not buying any of them. Activision is very greedy and charges full price for a game from 2009. I would strictly buy this game for the multiplayer or campaign then nothing else.

"The healthy human mind doesn't wake up in the morning thinking this is its last day on earth. But I think that's a luxury, not a curse. Knowing you're close to the end is a kind of freedom. Good time to take inventory. Outgunned. Outnumbered. Out of our minds. on a suicide misson. But the sand and rocks here stained with thousands of years of warfare, they will remember us for this. Because out of all our vast array of nightmares, this is the one we choose for ourselves. We go forward like a breath exhaled from the earth. With vigor in our hearts and one goal in sight: WE, Will, Kill Him!!" by Captain Price. Always after the bad guy, trying to kill makarov and sheperd, is a good teacher, and the best leader of all (his teammates except Nikolai all dead tho in this series).
I will never forget about this game. This is one of the most amazing FPS games I have ever played. I wanna give this 10 out of 10, But my favourite character, Ghost... The ending shouldn't be like that. I have been a fan boy of him. It's a real shame that he's dead at the end.
Anyways, I love this game to death YO
