Definetely one of the best - if not the best - COD made. Special Ops is so fun, and imo zombies is a bit overrated. I dont really care about the graphics - if you do though, you should get bo3. But apart from the graphics, it's super fun.

I loved this game, everything about it, the music, the levels, the betrayals. Had it since release way back in the day. 10/10 will undoubtedly play many times in the future.

The campaign carries on from the events from MW, The early and late battles in Afghanistan are fun and stimulating, the Russian invasion of continental US is theatrical and memorable. These sections being my personal favourites the music and atmosphere are incredible, "Of Their Own Accord" and "Whiskey Hotel" are phenominal from the moment you start in the trench bunker until you stand at top the ruins.

The Spec-Ops was a blast, both played alone, or co-op with a friend. A friend is optional but highly recommend specially if you're looking to play the 2 best levels, "Overwatch" and "Big Brother"

the Mulitplayer I never touched so I wont pass judgement.

I'm Rick Harrison, and this is my pawn shop. I work here with my old man and my son, Big Hoss. Everything in here has a story and a price. One thing I've learned after 21 years - you never know WHAT is gonna come through that door.

Product received for free
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.

CoD MW2 was the first shootergame i ever played. Back in the days i used to play it on my xBox 360 but some time ago I bought it for steam too.

positive Aspects:
+ The Singleplayer is absolutely
great

+ a whole bunch of missions with, for the releasetime, very good script sequences
+ a lot of turns and surprises in the story
+ very fun multiplayer mode with motivation to get to lvl 70

negative Aspects:
- Story is partly fragmentary
- Nowadays you get kicked waay to much because every idiot is able to get a so called "kicktool"
- Way to much cheaters on the servers in the last time

In the old days the game used to be great but nowadays i can only commend it for collectors, guys that are interrested in the singleplayer and if you want to play private matches with your friends.

Kind regards

The big friendly Stoner
