The multiplayer is disappointing on the consoles due to the aggravating glitches and exploits, and its debatable if its even worth playing on PC without dedicated servers. Though if you can look past these issues you'll find a competitive multiplayer scene you can get into. Spec ops mode is a good replacement for not having coop in the main story.
Overall I'm not sure I like the change in tone in the franchise but the same great gameplay (other than the Rio level)that was in previous instalments of COD exists here.
What I wanted to note for parents and others concerned about the "airport massacre" level, is that not only can you bypass that level, you can also play that level successfully without shooting any civilians. I have done it on more than one difficulty. You probably will need to fight the Russian tac teams, but that seems reasonable. So don't feel you have to shoot any civilians if you don't want to, and don't believe your kid if he/she says they have to :)
In short buy this game for the online not the single Player campaign and beat spec ops with your friend (not alone)
This game is soooo sweet. I could leave it at that, but thats not much of a review. First of all, the graphics are amazing, looks so real you will forget its a game.
The storyline has to be the best over MW1. Its full of action, whether your with a big team taking on hundreds of enemies or alone with a silenced sniper rifle. There is even a huge plot twist that is both jaw dropping and will leave you and your middle finger in the air, but dont worry, you shall have your revenge on that scum bag!
The multi-player online has got to be one of the most exciting thing of my monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, sometimes friday nights!! It is so addicting and fun. I will warn you though, you are not invincible and will not win every single game you play because your not god. I have my share of "WTF I knifed you first!" and my "wow im 0 and 6 already?!?" but that is all apart of it and its bound to happen, even if your a pro so dont be hating on the game. Some people complain about campers too, not gonna lie they piss me off as well but after they kill me the first time, I watch the kill-cam, and go tea bag that Son of a B**** when I re-spawn. I love the idea of doing challenges, this was a major fun increase to the game. Not only do you get your 1000th kill with that Scar (assualt rifle) but you get 10,000 exp points and a Title, very cool. There are a bunch of achievements too, not only for guns, example, Drop a killstreak crate on a enemy.Read more ›
MW2 has a number of things going for it that really sold me on the experience of playing it. The characters are amazingly well defined for a shooter, the voice acting was spot on for the most part, and the music, well, it's Hans Zimmer, like you're going to go wrong with that.
The game play, oddly, seems to be behind the times though. The fast-tap method of aim/shoot that's been around since the first COD game is good, but it's getting a little dated. It's built for the "rush" combat that seems to be the core of the MW2 game play, but it's not well suited to the thinking sections, like the stealth run through the winter scenes. More importantly though is the fact that a 4th gen shooter doesn't have a cover system. This is a serious gap in the model, and will definitely need to be addressed before I pick up another one in this series. Cover has been around since GOW1 and R6:V1, and would have made this game alot more fun to play as a tactical shooter, rather than a simple run and gun.
The big mood killer for me though was the duration. This was a SHORT game. for $60, I'd like to think that I'm going to spend at least 12 hours playing the game. This one, end to end, was 6. 6 hours!
I'm sorry for all those that are huge online fans, but if I'm going to spend $60 on a game, I expect to be immersed in the solo games, not just in running around trying to knife my friends on line.
In the end, did I enjoy the 6 hours? Yes. It's a fun ride, but it's a short one.Read more ›
