Modern Warfare 2 takes players to the snow-capped peaks of Russian mountains, across the deserts of Afghanistan and into the streets of Rio de Janeiro, and introduces a new co-operative Special Forces mode to back up the single-player campaign.
You know, I don't think this game is Terrible.
(Before you think of typing that comment about how stupid I am, hear me out.)
The storyline: It is confusing at times and all over the map, but a decent story that needed the gameplay worked on. I give it a 7 out of 10.
The Gameplay: The AI in Singleplayer isn't smart... at all. They are better than some AI, but that is comparing it to games way older than this. I give it a 7 out of 10.
The Multiplayer: I, personally, love Call of Duty Multiplayer. I just can't find the same experience from any other game. There still are problems, though. For one, Forget Tactics. The only way to get through the multiplayer is to be faster and have better weapons than your opponents. Playing Team games when you start is recommended. The Third Person Game mode? An interesting idea, but it didn't work. I give it an 8 out of 10.
Spec Ops: MW2 was the introduction of Spec Ops. Some of the missions I enjoyed, but others I just found redundant. I would have liked it if the missions weren't from the Campaign, mainly because if they were going to do that they should have just made Co-op. Some of the missions were too short, too. I give it a 7 out of 10.
Graphics: Finally, we've come to the graphics. While they are, essentially, Modern Warfare 1's graphics, they are slightly improved. My main complaint with them is that ridiculous, shiny shader. Never fear though, it can be turned off by disabling Specular Mapping in Options. I give the graphics an 8 out of 10.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is your typical Modern-era, Call of Duty. It is designed to be fast paced and action packed, but it lacks that extra pinch of spice to make it spark. It is enjoyable and a lot of things , like the shiny shader, can be gotten used to or fixed. I would recommend this game to a friend if they were looking for a decent, fast paced, run n' gun, Game. Overall, I give this game a 7.4 out of 10.
