Probably the best in the Modern Warfare series. Well directed and well executed. Graphics are awesome (Given its age) and the story couldn't be any better. The multiplayer with great maps and Co-op still give me a reason to play this game even after 5 years of it's release. Everything perfect about this one. I'd rate MW2>MW3, easily. Probably the last good CoD.

My overall ratings : 10/10 (Okay, maybe 9.99)

Edit : The only concerns are that of hackers plus these ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ unlock-everything servers that you get connected to without your notice that instantly promote you to level 70. Happened thrice till now and resetting the stats is pretty complicated.

What to say about Modern Warfare 2? Well, the fact that the multiplayer is practically dead, the only thing you can do is play the single-player, and spec-ops.

Now, you may be asking, "Why is the multiplayer dead?" The reason why it's dead, is because of the amount of hackers and children. Hackers in this game are the worst, even if you report a hacker, another five are going to take that persons place.

The game is NOT secure. I recommend you buy Modern Warefare 1, World at War, or any of the new COD titles. Such as Black Ops, and Black Ops 2, but NOT Ghosts. Ghosts is a terrible PC port, and is not worth it, but that is for another review. Modern Warfare 1 is the most secured, due to its dedicated servers, which keeps it alive, and "clean" of hackers and cheaters.

Some examples of hackers in Modern Warfare 2, are people who use:

  • Wallhackers
  • Aimbots
  • Instant Level Ten Prestige, and ALL Unlocks
  • Hud-Hacking (Yes, it does exist)
  • Instant VAC Ban

    The Instant VAC Ban is the WORST thing that can happen to you. I really do advise you to make private games, and play them with your friends, or find trustworthy people on Steam who host games in MW2 that are safe.

    Please, please, please watch what servers/hosted matches you join. I really don't want innocent players to get banned.

    I've heard that Search and Destroy games are safe, but the player count is very little in most game types.

    If you are still going to buy this game, and play the multiplayer, contact me. I will try my best to help find SAFE games for you, but the chances of finding these are very small. I wish all of you people luck.

    Overall, get it for the Spec-Ops, and the Singleplayer.

    Stay safe, and play safe...and watch for hackers...

    -Cheers
