Rate This Review: CoD Modern Warefare 2 Multiplayer - Team Deathmatch (Xbox 360)
(Xbox 360) Call of Duty: Modern Warefare 2 Multiplayer - Team Deathmatch
High: Killstreaks are a great part of the game and, if used effectively can be a great asset when you're in a tight spot. Use a killstreak right and you'll be in first place every game.
Low: Squeakers and ragers. I have nothing against any of the aforementioned people but if you're in a game and have a headset on, turn the voice volume down a lot. Squeakers tend to have twitchy mics that go off at random points in time so when, for example, you're in a game and you're about to snipe the guy that's shooting at a teammate and suddenly a high-pitched squeal goes off in your ear, you won't be bothered. It can get very strenuous when playing with Ragers. Ragers like to cuss, shout, scream, and all-around be loud, obnoxious and extremely annoying. If you want a calm, quiet game, I'd suggest going into a team tactical game as those require teamwork and effort on everyone's part.
WTF: When you knife an enemy in the back and your teammate gets the kill. WTF?
If you plan on playing this by yourself, it's best to try and find some friends on Xbox Live that are willing to play with you as it tends to be much more fun that way. If you enjoy playing by yourself, turn your voice chat off, and let the games begin. This game is good for those who like to either run in and go kamikaze on the enemy or like to quickscope. If you plan on doing slow and long range sniping, this game probably isn't for you as you'll get shot pretty fast. If you do play with friends, make sure you can communicate with them clearly so that the both of you know who is shooting at what, and where.
This game requires patience, the ability to stay calm in relatively stressful or tense situations, and the ability to have fun. If you have good eye-hand coordination, you'll love this game. If you don't, this game is a pretty good game to teach you to be better at it.
Another great pro about CoD is that it tends to be easier for many more people than any of the other Call of Duty games. If you like shooting, having fun with friends, and relaxing, then this game is for you. There are a variety of other games that let you do those things, but this one seems to be enjoyed by many.
Parents: If your kid is younger than 12, this might not be the game for him. If you don't want him to be exposed to swearing and or kids being mean or teasing your child, then this game might not be for your kid. If you don't mind a little bit of swearing and/or your kid being teased, then this is alright. Most kids manage, but be cautious when picking games that have a multiplayer feature, like the Call of Duty Series.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing: This game requires attention and the ability to hear what is going on around you. If you know what's going on in your surroundings, you should be fine, but if not, then I wouldn't suggest playing this game.
Disclosures: This game was obtained via retail store and reviewed on the Xbox 360. Approximately 20+ hours of play was devoted to single-player modes (completed 1 time) and 70+ hours of play to multiplayer modes.
