I'm going to be straightforward, if you like first-person shooters, go out and buy this game right now! You don't even have to finish reading my review, I'd rather you experience the same amount of intensity that I did. If you're still a little hesitant, stick around. If you don't like first-person shooters, this won't change your mind, and it's not the greatest to start with, either. If you want to find a perspective changing FPS, I recommend renting Half-Life 2 right now, then come back later.

For those of you who are still here, welcome to my review. I'll quickly give you an overlook at my ratings for the game.

Sound: 9.5
Graphics: 9
Gameplay: 10
Lasting Appeal: 9
Overall: 9.5, but they don't have that as a choice here, so it says 9, but it's really a 9.5.

Now that you have that, lets dive into it. First off, I want people to know that even though the online was said to be bad, they recently had an update free through Live, and the interface and options of the new online part is great. It is very fun and the new maps are really worth downloading, you will get a lot of mileage out of them.

So, the graphics in this game are incredible. A lot of things aren't destructible, and some textures are a bit bland, but the surroundings are extremely detailed, and the smoke is awesome. The sound is beautiful, and really helpful, this was the incentive for me to get surround sound.

But nothing will surpass the amazing gameplay. The single player campaign is flawless. Every battle is crazily intense. It really gives you that feeling of war. The AI is the most groundbreakingly human to date. You will play through a section for a second time(which you'll be doing a lot if you play on hard or veteran, which are super difficult) and it will seem totally new, because the AI is so eerily genius. The shooting makes up the majority of the game, which is so much fun. There are a lot of missions that mix things up, eg. calling air strikes, tanks, etc.

COD2 is a great game. It's definitely worth a rent or buy, the single player is like any other shooter you have to do a role of tasks and doing so kill tons of enemies. Multiplayer and co-op are awesome its like all of the other cods, like death match and capture the flag are both great. Graphics are great for a launch title and controls are the same as black ops and modern warfare. For some weird reason i love the weapons and in COD2 machine guns have major kick back but rifle are great handling. My only concern is glitches like if you kill an enemy near to a corner they start spinning and junk. But overall a good game worth a try to break away from black ops. 8.5
