Don't make the same mistake I did,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - PC (DVD-ROM)
This is my first review, I normally don't review things but I had to add a reasonable voice for potential buyers who are on the fence.
I bought this game disappointed that there were no dedicated servers (and thus no matches with lots of people or little lag), but hoping that IWnet would meet or exceed my expectations. It didn't. Gameplay is horrible. I'm bored after an hour or so. 6v6 doesn't cut it. Playing with random people all of the time doesn't cut it. This is not fun.
MW1 entertained me for dozens if not hundreds of hours. I've already lost interest in this game even though it graphically is very well done. Its hard to believe that such a good game (MW1) was turned into such a POS; it takes real effort to turn a masterpiece into unplayable garbage, but IW managed to do it.
I'd return this game in an instant if I could. There is truth to all of the rants people have posted online. Do not buy this.

Does the online games lag?
How lag is it?

Yes, hosts and connections frequently drop. No dedicated servers also gives the host a huge, unfair advantage. While you run around with a 100+ ping, the host has 0 ping and absolutely no lag. Furthermore, it is hard to find a good group of people (or host) to play with for any period of time, especially if you're like me and don't have huge chunks of time to play. Adding to this problem is the time you spend idle. If you're playing for an hour, expect to spend 10minutes of it inbetween games. It takes ~1 min to find a game and then there is ~1min of forced wait time between games.

I'd sell my copy if I could.
