Overall: Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare was considered one of the greatest games ever in almost every aspect. So when Infinity ward went to go make its highly anticipated sequel knowing it would be spit it if it was nothing short of the greatest thing of all time. Amazingly enough they did it. Modern Warfare 2 in my opinion has been the greatest video game I have ever played and will play in a long time in all aspects of single player, story, gameplay, and especially multiplayer. This game is guaranteed atleast a year of gametime.
Gameplay: If you have played the extrordinary game Call of Duty 4 then the experience won't be too different. The controls for the most part are the same except there are a few changes on multiplayer but they are so minor I doubt it will hinder this game's performance at all. The game is so well made this game had one of the craziest storylines ever. The controls to this game are exactly the same, but it was already really good so if it isn't broke don't fix it. Single player is great very very captivating, but the only downfall about it is that it is too short. Multiplayer is something that I can talk forever about it is the same as the old game except much much improved. The developers have added new perks, guns, attachments, equipment, maps, titles, emblems, gametypes, and most of all customized kill streaks. These features will definitly keep you playing this game for a long long long time.
Graphics: Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 looks nothing short of amazing. Just watching the game is enough to make your eyes water. The game is so stunning just about everything is completely accurate sure there are a few things not completely the same if it was on a battlefield, but nothings perfect but this comes pretty close to it. Not the greatest visually but definitly up there.
Sound: This game definitly has an amazing audio. The audio will always fit to keep your heart pumping at every moment. The game has the perfect music for the perfect moments especially for suiting up or when your playing single player wherever you are. The game is also extremely good at copying the sounds of all the different guns, equipment, environment, and support. Although these seem very small and insignificant, all of them together creates an amazing atmosphere that really makes you appreciate.

Overall: The long awaited sequel to the HUGE Call of Duty: Modern Warfare franchise has arrived.
Modern Warfare 2 has hit most of the right buttons, intense story lines that are sure to shock and anger you at the appropriate time's, and sure to keep you playing again and again.
The online features more than CoD4:MW and CoD:WaW combined, Pretty much everything you can pick can be upgraded, from your guns to your perks and kill and death streaks.
The new addition of customizable callsigns that the opposing player will angrily see when you pop him in the face with your silenced sniper make it truly enjoyable time and time again and with a level cap of 70 (maybe higher) there will be nothing to get bored of.
Gameplay: Single player plays incredible, with a variety of different missions spaced out perfectly,
All out firefights, stealthy, and action packed vehicle missions.
As soon as you start the game you can tell that its going to be like no other game before,
The training camp looks huge, there is lots going on, and you get the feeling of being in an army checkpoint, The missions have the familiar CoD feel that we love and controls haven't been changed that much. And the Storyline was immense, with a nice little tease at the end, Will they, Wont they? (you'll understand when you complete it).

Multiplayer plays pretty amazing aswell, with a couple controls that may take a little longer than usual to get to grips with i.e. Claymores replacing grenades etc, but beside the minor things there isn't much more you could ask for, there is things i wanted for CoD4 like directional airstrikes MAN!
Infinity ward have touched on all bases here, and there is in every case, something for everyone.
Graphics: Visually AMAZING, Thermal's through smoke, people flying from explosions, the way dead enemies fall, there is almost nothing poor about MW2, a thing that I noticed was that when me and my teammates pushed close to enemys they would stop shooting and run past us, but that's nothing to complain about.
The game is so visually pleasing that if it where any better our eyes would probably implode.
Sound: Get some good gaming headphones or surround sound speakers, and become overwhelmed with explosions, bullets, ricochets and orders getting shouted at you, gives you an amazing sense of being in the game, and the intensity is turned up to 11, you will here enemies shout amongst another giving you another depth of realism.
