A sequel should always surpass the original and not just in graphics(and MW2 more than surpasses the originals graphics). It should take the original and improve on all the things you liked, leave out all the junk you didn't, and even add some new twists to the old formula. Does Modern Warfare 2 do this? Well probably not for everybody but for most of us Modern Warfare 2 delivers in spades.
The first thing you will notice is how this MW is broken into to three separate parts: Spec Ops, Campaign, and Multi-Player. Spec Ops is the new addition on the block and allows you to play missions with one other person either online or split screen. It works great and is an awesome addition to the series.
Multi-Player is greatly improved with a new perk system and killstreak rewards. Bigger maps and better graphics work well with the new killstreak awards. All the same game types return with a few new ones but since I am a free for all, team deathmatch, and hardcore team deathmatch, I really couldn't tell you about them.
Campaign is the reason I gave this game a 9 instead of a 10. The gameplay is spot on but the story is a step down from the first Modern Warfare. It just doesn't make much sense and is completely lacking in any sort of realism. But I didn't buy this game to play the story mode so I am not too disappointed.
Don't bother renting this game just go out and buy it as soon as you can. The improvements in multi-player and especially the all new spec ops make this game a must own.

What can i say, third person multiplayer, great story line, new guns plus sick attacments. The graphics have been tightened up a little bit more this time around. Spec ops is great. When i first took a look at the trailer i was blown away but not sure cause alot of games had unbelivable trailers but werent good. But i have COD4 and i knew this game had to be just as good or better. But it blew my mind. Especially when i saw you can upgrade your perks. Theres even a perk that makes deathstreak 1 less. Oh yea, almost forgot about deathstreaks. You can custmozie your killstreak and theres a new deathstreak. 20 new guns, new perks as well as the great old ones. new and improved graphics. If you dont get this game it is a shame

At first playing through the campaign i was a little dissapointed. I felt so overwhelmed with the chaos i felt like i couldnt peek my head out or it would get blown off it was way too much for me to take in for a second. As i warmed up to the new physics of the game it started to be alot more fun. The story line is a bit confusing at first but it does come together at the end brilliantly! I was pumped up when it was over but yet again i must say it was way too short i beat it in one night. Graphics are right up there with the best games out gameplay is bar none. Some people say its not worth buying but everyone knows that COD MW2 is about the online multiplayer 1st if you have played it you know what i mean its just non stop fun action with friends. And the new spec ops missions are also alot of fun to play together. IF you have one FPS game your lookin at buying this is ur game!
