I pre ordered my copy of MW 2 thinking it would be good, not amazing like a lot of people hyped it up to be, but I'm surprised to say that this game is a big improvement from the first. Now I'll start off by saying I'm not a FPS kind of guy, so I wasn't into all the hype. I only pre ordered because all my friends were getting it. The big difference between this and the first is that the single player is greatly improved. It has a more "epic" feel to it, which is great for a war game. The so called controversial level that's been getting some attention is really powerful. However, it does feel short as I was able to finish the game in about 6 - 7 (minor breaks included) hours on normal. Now, not shockingly, the multiplayer is great. Everyone knows CoD online is great, and I don't need to tell you that it is great. There are some minor improvements that makes everything feel more balanced, but overall it's still good ole CoD. For any CoD fan this game is a must buy and for those one or two of you that haven't played CoD, might as well start here because this game is great, and is a definite GOTY contender.
Pro's: - Fantastic gameplay - Powerful campaign - The online is in a class of its own - Great visuals
