Single player's alright, but Multiplayer is where it's at.

There are plenty of games that don't offer a chance to new players. On so many other titles, you get completely f-cked by other players due to the difference in skill.

This game is different. Instead of getting f-cked by other people, the game f-cks you instead. Half the time it doesn't work properly, and it's completely unbalanced with a degenerate community. Quite often you'll encounter a hacker, and it's not rare to get stuck in a modded server. There's no Server Blacklist included, so you can enjoy getting thrown back into the same sh-thole over and over again. Enjoy the modded server admins who DDOS you if you use a weapon that they don't like.

All in all, it's the classic Call of Duty experience. This game is a known carcinogen and I thoroughly recommend it for ages 8 to slept-with-ur-mom for hours of aggravated fun.

This game made me into a 13 year old ragemonster in middleschool. My ♥♥♥♥♥ was constantly erect for 2 years after its release and I became a ♥♥♥♥ING BAG OF DORITOS. It made me rub MountainDew on my nipples until they bled and had to yell for my mom to get my ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

I rate it 10/10 Illuminati's

I remember playing this awesome war simulator back in the day when it came out now trick shotters have slowly taken over, much like ebola and ruined it.

Also no one plays it.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is most broken CoD game that you can get on Steam.
I DO NOT recommend getting this game. Game still have solid playerbase ( 3-4k at peak time in November 2014 ), but it has become total hackfest.
Chances of getting into normal legit lobby are really small. There is lots of moded lobbys.
I have around 12 played hours in Multiplayer and thanks to some hacker I am already master prestige with all unlocks.
Maps and weapons are really good,but game itself it's just broken and not worth getting.

But if you still want to get this game and waste your money than you will more than enjoy next challenges.

1. Noobtubes - They are usually not hard to recognize. They are hiding in corners and waiting at critical points. You easy recognize them because they do not know how to speak english language.
2. Tactical Nuke INBOUND ! - This kind of players are really special. They have such good skills that they are able to see through walls and they can aim directly in your head. Their Steam profiles are usually private and they usually already have VAC ban on them.
3. Modded lobbies - This ones can be really fun sometimes. After you leave them you usually end up having highest rank possible and modded create a class names.
4. Snipers Invasion 360 Noscope FTW #YOLO #SWAG - Modern Warfare 2 is not a game where you could compete with special awesome skilled super reking sniperz that are beasting on everyone. Every lobby have group of them and they are extremely dangerous. Even tho it is not hard to recognize them by their names it is really hard to deal with them. Lagging servers and best spawns in CoD history are really huge + for sniperz. They usually use hack insertion and know every weird spot that average player would never think about.
5. Tryhard AK-47 beasts - These players are absolute beasts. They are usually speaking german and playing in full parties. After they spawn they usually start with saying that "unzer clan suche members zehr high k/d beast plz bitten speak sprechen sie deutchtze" and are really loud on their microphones.
6. LOST CONNECTION TO SERVER - Standard issue for every PC CoD player.

Single player - Classical CoD campaign. 9/10 because of Captain Price and other standard members of MW series.
Co-op - It was nice few years back, but when you compare it to todays co-op missions it's really nothing speciall.
Even CoD 4 co-op and other modded servers are way better that this. Play it only if you are achievment hunter. 3/10

Несомненно, одна из лучших частей серии CoD. Нисколько не жалею о потраченных на нее 800р в меломане несколько лет назад. Увы, все когда-то умирает, и mw2 не исключение. Заметный спад онлайна за последние годы (остались в основном хардкорные олдфаги); читеры с иммунитетом на репорты (просто потому, что админы уже болт ложили на мв2 и занимаются этими "новейшими и популярнейшими" проектами серии CoD. И очень даже зря. Мое сугубо субъективное мнение на сей счет.

As a huge fan of Infinty Ward's Call of Duty series, I have to admit that this one, Modern Warfare 2 is my personal favourite. Well it is a simple First Person Shooter game with easy and simple mechanics (like almost every FPS game). I found the Single Player storyline interesting and awesome (great fights, and great scenes in general) and I have to admit that I wanted MORE of it when I finally finished it. Although there were many negative reviews and comments about it, and to be more specific, about the mission "No Russian" in which you are asked if you really want to play it or skip it, I think that Modern Warfare 2 is a worty replacer of its predecessor Modern Warfare, which was a huge success for Infinity Ward. If I have to mention something that dissapointed me is the game's community, which is small and...unfortunately toxic. This is maybe the only reason, why I do not reccomend the Multiplayer on this game.

I give this game 7/10

A great singleplayer experience. The campaign is defintely the stength of this game at this point in time. If you're coming to it late, you're not going to find a lot in the multiplayer. Worth the buy at a discount.
