This is by far the best Call of Duty yet! The graphics and game play are top notch! Just like the first Modern Warfare the single player campaign is a little short, I got through it in just over 6 hours of play time. Furthermore, just like the first one, this was built around online play. The online is simply amazing! This game is a must own.

I am an avid gamer and this is by far the best Call of duty yet and possibly one of the best games ever. I will object to the age range rating of 12-14 years. This is a game by adults for adults (hence the Mature rating). Don't fool yourselves parents.

Product Overview

Modern Warfare 2 is a first-person tactical shooter and the sixth entry in the popular Call of Duty series. True to its name and following the lead of its predecessor, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, it places players in modern combat settings, as opposed to the WWII environments of the earlier Call of Duty games. This modern approach brings with it new weapons, action and options. Coupled with a variety of gameplay modes including single player, multiplayer and the co-op Special Ops Mode, it is destined to be one of the most popular games of 2009 and a worthy addition to the Call of Duty series.

About the Game: The latest release in arguably the most successful tactical first-person shooter franchise of all-time, gameplay in Modern Warfare 2 follows the same winning and time-tested structure of earlier games in the series. In the single player campaign players are aided by AI squad members as they take on a series of missions aimed at eliminating Ultranationalist forces. Each mission is built around a particular objective, with players utilizing some level of guidance from NPC characters, including "Soap" MacTavish, and aided in navigation by the game's heads up display (HUD). Along the way players will be able to utilize a wide variety of weaponry and and vehicles, as well as be able to customize weapons with gadgets attached to them.

Also, just as in previous games in the series, Modern Warfare 2 is heavily focused on multiplayer gameplay. The different multiplayer modes, available both in local play and online, contain plenty of customization options and revolve around different strategies ranging from the every man for himself action of "Free-for All," the classic team-based fun of "Capture the Flag and the tactical, team-oriented action of "Search and Destroy," just to name a few. Multiplayer modes also feature the "Perk" System that players may be familiar with from earlier in the franchise. Through this system players gain additional abilities, weapons and benefits as they gain experience in combat. This can be done by leveling up, but another important way way is through "kill streaks," the number of enemies eliminated in succession. These are available beginning with three kills and include the ability to call for supply drops, predator missile strikes, helicopter gunships and many more. Players have the ability to customize in advance which perks will be available at each number and can even gauge their progress towards each at the touch of a button. With an eye towards not making the game too hard for new players the game also features help to players experiencing "death streaks," multiple consecutive deaths in multiplayer matches.

Special Ops Co-op Mode: Along with a single player mode and multiple multiplayer modes, Modern Warfare 2 also features an unique third main play option, Special Ops Mode. Available both online and in local play, Special Ops Mode is designed to provide a distinct time-based play option, featuring special scenarios not found in other modes in the game and lots of enemies to take on. This mode can be played either alone or with a friend, again either locally or online, with local co-op play including split-screen functionality.

Review Over the years the Call of Duty series has set the bar for immersive, action-packed, cinematic FPS gaming, and no matter what camp you're from there's no denying the franchise's influence on the industry. When Infinity Ward moved from the classic World War II setting and blazed new ground with Modern Warfare we saw the first obvious split within the world of Call of Duty. The series dropped its historic focus, created a new cast of characters, and began treading on new ground by taking the first-person shooter genre to new locales, and pushing the boundaries of what military games are willing to show. With Modern Warfare 2, the sheer amount of hype has been practically inescapable, with preorders alone setting it up as one of the biggest selling games of all time, the addition of even more multiplayer modes and features, and the game's new Special Operations mode has set Infinity Ward's lastest up as the game to beat this year...When you look at the total package, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is hands-down one of the best first-person shooters out there, and a truly amazing offering across any system. With that being said, our score comes with a disclaimer. For those planning to check out everything Modern Warefare 2 has to offer -- online competition, full co-op Spec Ops mode, as well as the campaign -- you're looking at a no-brainer purchase. For the strictly single player crowd, however, Modern Warfare 2 is surprisingly short, and doesn't live up to the standard set by previous Call of Duty games. The campaign can be completed in as little as four and a half hours, and the missions make better scenarios and moment-to-moment adrenaline rushes than they do a cohesive, well-told story. If you're going solo, you've officially been warned. Look at the complete Modern Warfare 2 experience though, and there's no denying its rightful place at the top.

Review Infinity Ward returns with a follow-up to the critically acclaimed Modern Warfare that has already stirred up controversy over the now infamous airport level. But don't let that distract you from the real discussion: is the game any good? Reviews Editor Tae K. Kim spent two days playing every available mode and his impressions follow. The game definitely has potential but its place in video game history will ultimately be decided by the fanatic online community who may take issue with some of the n00b friendly changes...The first rule of my own personal reviews philosophy is "Remain objective" but that's almost impossible when dealing with a franchise that's as critically and financially successful as Call of Duty. I've been a fan of the series since its inception (though I hated Call of Duty 3 as much as you did) so I couldn't help but have high expectations for Modern Warfare 2, the sequel to the obscenely successful Modern Warfare. My attempts to remain objective weren't helped by the fact that, instead of being sent a review build, as is usually the case, I was offered a trip down to Infinity Ward's offices for a two-day Modern Warfare 2 marathon...The potential for addiction remains intact and MW2 should replace the original as the de facto online war shooter, even as the online cognoscenti rant and rave about the changes. But even taking into account the potentially controversial tweaks I noted above, it's hard to turn a blind eye to the sense of polish that the devs brought to the table. I'm definitely biased here because I was given a pure dose of what the online experience could and should be, and obviously the real world version, the "street" stuff, can be incredibly impure at times, poisonous even, but it's hard to imagine Modern Warfare 2 failing to grab the attention of the established fanbase...Of course, only time will tell if they latch onto it like children suckling at their mother's breast or if they sink their fangs in like rabid guard dogs going for an intruder's jugular: while I personally liked the game a lot, it's the diehards who will ultimately decide its true worth. That won't become clear until the game releases to the public and the fanatics have had a chance to tear into the full experience, so all I can do until then is add my lone voice to what will eventually become a choir. Based on what I've seen (and again, keep in mind the controlled environment in which I saw it) I'm singing the game's praises, but if you really want to know whether or not the game is up to snuff, wait and listen closely to the community to see if they sing sweet hosannas or scream bloody murder.
