Advantages: Fun campaign, Multiplayer is awesome, Has a lot of memorable moments
Disadvantages: Short campaign, Multiplayer has some issues
Modern Warfare 2 is one fun game. It has great multiplayer and and an awesome though short campaign.
In Modern Warfare 2 you play as several characters, trying to stop Russian terrorist Vladimir Makarov. Makarov is a bad man and does several things to make you mad. You have to stop him. You will travel to many different places in hopes of capturing him. There is one level though that is very controversial. I'm not going to go in too much detail but in that level you have to kill innocent people. Thankfully, though, if you don't want to do that, you don't have to. You can skip the mission if you want. The campaign, I loved, it had great memorable moments that I will for sure remember. From climbing up mountains, to stopping bad guys on a boat. The story though actually wasn't really good but you would expect that from first person shooters.
You have a wide array of guns to your disposal and you can also pick up guns from fallen allies and enemies. All the guns in the campaign sound great and you will be able to recognize a lot of them .
The voice acting is nice too and you might recognize some voices from other games you might have played.
The only I thing I didn't like about the campaign was that it ends too quickly. You can probably beat it in 5 hours or so. Overall though the campaign was great albeit short.
The default control layout is the same and what you would expect from a first person shooter. You shoot with the right trigger and aim with the left. You throw grenades with the right bumper and you can clicking the left thumb stick. You knife/melee someone by pressing the right thumb stick. Meleeing some one is very satisfying and you will love doing it.
The multiplayer and campaign are quite different in Modern Warfare 2. The multiplayer in call of duty is known as the best in gaming. It is quite simple but takes sometime to get good since are there so many experienced players. While it takes some time getting used to, when you are experienced and good you will love killing people online. This will also give you a chance to brag to your friends how good you are. The maps are varied, they are snow maps and maps where you play in a village, to maps where you play in an airport. The maps in Modern Warfare 2 are nice and unique. In Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer, there are different classes. Each class has it's own weapon and unique features. You can also create your own custom classes. Custom classes help you a lot as you can mix and match weapons and perks.Perks let you modify your classes and that is really helpful. Leveling up is very important in multiplayer. When you level up, you can unlock more guns and perks. I loved the multiplayer and I kept coming back to play more. I'm sure you will be hooked to it too. Something I loved doing in multiplayer was stabbing people from behind with my knife. It was really satisfying and I felt really good. Something that did bother me though was the lag and constant swearing from immature little kids.
Overall, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is very fun and exciting. The campaign has very memorable moments but it is short. The multiplayer will keep making you come back for more, despite having a few issues. If you like first person shooters, you should pick up Modern Warfare 2.
Summary: Great game for first person shooter fans
