Probably the BIGGEST release this year Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a direct sequel to Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare. The advertising that was done for this game created such a media hype and had gamers sitting at the edge of their seats biting their nails awaiting the release of the game.
Activision threw a release party on Nov 9, 2009 at Union Square, NYC where fans could come in and play the game with developes giving out autographs. Followed up by a midnight release of the game at 4200+ gamestops across USA.
After the bitter taste Call of Duty: World at War left in our mouths the expectations from Modern Warfare 2 sky rocketed. The great part Modern Warfare 2 actually meets all these expectations and goes above and beyond to provide an amazingly immersive gameplay experience that draws the played in and makes them feel everything around them.
Once you start playing this title you dont want to stop. The story line is great, weapon choices many, little bit of choice making like kill or sneak past and some major badass multiplayer. You have the option to play through the single player campaign, multiplayer game modes and also a set of custom missions that you can either do alone or with a friend. With so much to do this title will keep you busy for a while.
The AI is smart but there is a great deal of linear gameplay. Enemy troops will always appear in the same place making it static to a great extent. The multiplayer component covers up for this with a variety of gameplay modes and maps. Custom classes with abilities that help you style of gameplay as well as the challenges to level up and unlock new weapons and attachments will keep you busy for a long time....
For all the work thats gone into the game and the final result i give this a 9/10. (Static AI -1 *sigh* perfect 10 if only...)
