Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is a first person shooter released by Infinity Ward. It is the sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. It is the one of the many games in the call of duty series.
Starting with Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward ditched the World War II aspect, to focus on games that grip closer to current events. Modern Warfare 2 is set after Modern Warfare and introduces a new character.

The player starts teaching some rebels how to shoot. Then afterwards the player is sent to run a course.

The speed, and precision of the accuracy of the player, helps the game purpose the difficulty level for the player. This difficulty is completely up to the player though. After this, the player is sent on various missions.

Eventually the players' actions will cause a war between America, and Russia, with an actual Russian invasion. War with Russia, and Arab nations, as a side note, is the most common themes for shooters these days.

Guns are nothing different either. Weapons range from M9 pistols to Vector Submachine guns and M4 Carbine. The enemies also have the traditional HK G3s, and Ak47s. One of the most popular levels in the game include a snowmobile chase, with a single pistol to defend yourself .

The game also travels to Brazil so we gamers can look at the festivals, and shoot them up for the sake of our entertainment. The multiplayer portion of this game has many static game types, nothing new.
There is a leveling system though, which goes to show the amount of time someone has played, and their skill level. Match making is flawed though as it will often place a level one against level fifty's or something similar.

Being a Call of Duty game, it also brings along the constant connection interruption problems and the host migrations. Also included is an arcade type game mode. Players go up against waves of enemies in set missions. As players beat a mission, they get a star. They receive one star for each difficulty level they beat, totaling three possible starts per level. As players earns total stars they unlock more levels..
