Why Was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 SO AWESOME?!

Modern Warfare 2 was the big turning point in the Call of Duty series for many fans. While COD 4 was unanimously acclaimed and well-received, MW2 did not enjoy the same level of praise. So what's the deal? Was this game nothing more than a product of it's time? Or is there some secret formula to the franchises success hidden away?
Only one way to find out...

      MW2 is the best COD ever.Although the Campaign and story looked somehow looked unrealistic but it was so fun because the quality and missions and locations were so awesome.The shooting and the guns were great and it could hyped you by making you look badass and be a one man army and military outfits and units and radio chatter were made so great..Another reason that I belive this is the best COD is that they actually made it look different than MW1.They looked multiplayer,maps,soundtracks,gunsounds and gaphics better but unfourtunately MW3 was a different story they just copied everything from MW2 and they made you feel stupid like nothing has changed and they lost creativity.

      Dude, regarding the Russians declaring war, private Allen was CIA. The Russian government found out a CIA agent was involved in that massacre, so they naturally saw that as an act of war and retaliated... granted much harder

    I think the reason the Russians jumped straight to war after finding an American among the attackers is because they were already itching to fight. They didn't look too hard because they just wanted the excuse to go to war.

    The Russians go to war without much investigation into the attack because the Ultranationalist hardliners wanted it. Even though Vorshevsky was hesitant, the extreme wing of the party needed a justification, one that it got from the attack

    "A popular, new video game actually allows you to be a terrorist and kill people." There are so many things wrong with what he described MW2 as. 1. You're not a terrorist in "No Russian;" you're an undercover agent disguised as a terrorist. 2. Your character in "No Russian" was forced to take part in that attack; he practically had no choice. 3. Desecrating a game like that by saying that one thing is very immature and wrong on many levels. That'd be like saying, "Hey, I saw this new game that allows you to conquer a whole world, take its natural habitats and slaughter and cook the animals within them, and even steal natural resources from the land." I'm referring to Minecraft.

    I don't really like modern warfare 2. it's a good game but they're just one thing that I just don't like about it it's when Shepherd kills roach and ghost. So ghost and Roach are what I call plot purpose characters want to go somewhere and they need a plane to get there, the character is able to get the plane but during their time in New York the character that got the planes dies in a car crash that's pretty much what I call Plot purpose characters.

    Man, 2000-2010 was the golden age of gaming. Halo 1, 2, and 3, COD 4, MW2, black ops, gears of war, splinter cell chaos theory, the list goes on. I’m so thankful to have been a part of it and feel sorry today’s gamers only have mediocre COD games, remasters of games that aren’t as good as the original, and fortnight. Maybe someday the glory days will return

I miss it so much, once in a while, I plug in m ps3, insert MW2, and try to play Online MP, but most of the time, no other players. I really hope they bring back MW2 in campaign AND MP.

But growing up and playing MWR and getting the full story it all makes sense. And truly is one of the greats in COD history.

    One thing COD did wrong was rush the futuristic movement, they should have took their time instead of going from boots on the ground to straight flying and wall run. I like how AW used exo-skeletons since tht is something the government is working on.Then BO3 came out and BO4 is just a joke.

    This game was and still is my favo FPS of all time I had so much fun playing this game when I was young. I have 677 hours on this game. Its the highest amount of hours I have in a FPS game ever so that's saying something about the enjoyment I got out of this game's multiplayer. And I played MOHAA (All the expansions), COD 1 + 2 and 4 (Modern Warfare) and Also HALO:CE on PC and yet non ever came close to the amount of fun I had in MW2. If they made a remaster with decent dedicated servers this time I am 100% sure il switch over from R6S and Apex back to CoD as I haven't play COD since the disappointing BO3

    A great thing about MW2 that wasn't touched on. It was a multiplayer game that didn't have online achievements. All 50 achievements can be done from the couch, meaning if the player ever couldn't go online, for Xbox Live, connectivity, reception, servers shutting down, anything, they would _always_ be able to get achievements. So many games these days have achievements tied into multiplayer, completely destroying achievement percentages if the player just wants to play an old game 3 months ago I got Star 69 after not touching the game for 3 years. I 100%d a game I've never been good at by myself, thanks to achievements being obtainable offline.
