1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY!, November 10, 2009
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - PC (DVD-ROM)
Do not buy this game. It is a total waste of your hard earned money. Just read some of the reviews and you will see this is nothing more than a gimped console port. Everything that makes this game a PC game is missing.

I would recommend waiting for Battlefield Bad Company 2 for the PC instead. It retains much of what is still desirable in a PC game.

Here is a break down of the differences between Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Take notice that almost everything is a downgrade for a higher price.

Do you have to mess with Steam if all you want to do is play completely as single-player, with no multi-player mode at all, ever? I always play against bots and not humans. I get enough of humans during the course of a normal day. Thank you.

Steam is required to play singleplayer as well. Don't buy a used copy if it has already been activated and tied to a steam user account. You won't be able to play it.

I completely agree with this review. COD:MW2 is DOA.

This is a sad day in PC gaming, as the console ports have ruined it beyond recovery.

You would have to play this game with an IW/Activision/etc complex, in order not to enjoy it. You would really have to try and hate it.
This review is pessimism exemplified.

I thoroughly enjoyed singleplayer (see my review). But once I beat it, that was it. Multiplayer sucks.

Is that worth $60 for 10 hours of entertainment? For me, no.

Mel, you either don't play MP or you're a shill/fanboy.

This game is great as a single player and multiplayer game, so what if the options are not there yet... The game is fun to play, if the players playing it have the right hardware...Have you ever thought the game will be upgraded sooner or later, look at how many patches there were for "World at War," and the first "Modern Wafare"...The things you did not mention about online play are the amount of weapons and abilities that are available upon ranknig up... You also did not mention the "Special Ops Mode" which is fun...
I agree with the Peer-to-Peer downgrade, I do like to pick the server to go on, which is a bummer...
