Pending its release Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 was one of the most anticipated games of all time. Many wondered whether it would live up to its ludicrous expectation. Guess what, it sure did. It is the best single person shooter of all time and some may arguably say it is even better than COD 4 and upon its release it was announced to be the most selling video game of all time selling over $332 million worth of the game in just the first two days.

Now you may ask yourself what is it about these games that drives so many people to go out there and buy it. Well through personal experience I can't stress enough the addictive nature of the game. Its action packed thrilling nature entices even the most casual of gamers into a tense affair involving millions of other gamers around the world.

COD 6 has 3 main game types these are solo campaign, zombies and multiplayer which give the gamer the chance to compete against other gamers worldwide and to try to progress up the Call of Duty leaderboard. Special Ops includes zombie mode where the player must last as many rounds as possible fighting off endless rounds of zombies which can often result in hours of gripping fun. (depending how good you are). Campaign includes the gamer playing as specific characters in this case in the scenario of the cold war and endeavouring on countless missions.But, it must be said the story is one of the most ridiculous and unrealistic plots which has plenty of twists and turns to keep the gamer going. However the main use of the ridiculous storyline is just so Infinity Ward the designer can use some of the locations as maps and they have done that extremely well with some of the maps being extremely well designed.

The only criticism that I do have of the game is its tediously annoying servers which sometimes crashed however treyarch assures that the bug has been fixed. Another criticism of COD 6 is that Game hackers can cause the game to crash or freeze and can also apply privileges for themselves which make the game unfair however these cases rarely occur and when they do they are quickly dealt with.

In hindsight I think COD 6 is one of the greatest video games ever made its status as the most selling video game of all time speaks for itself and is a game which I would recommend to gamers of all types (except those under the age of 18 of course as the game is an 18+). I would also urge viewers to buy the new map packs which consist of five new levels escalation the latest map pack being released last week.
