This was the first CoD game i bought on my 360 and 3 years on, it still resounds to me. The storyline is short, but very very entertaining. It will keep you entertained for a while, especially on Veteran. Presentation wise, it beats alot of games today. Every gun, every person, every building and every landscape looks crisp and precise. Being based in the Middle East means one can relate to it with current procedings. The gameplay is solid and runs with easy-to-use controls that wont make you look up what each button does. It runs smoothly and there is never any frame rate problems. The actions are responsive and precise and wont let you down when you need to be on your top performance.
The multiplayer WAS a breakthrough at the time. Now it feels a little outdated. However, the maps on this game are all round the BEST for any newer CoD title. Shipment, Crossfire, Bog, Crash, Overgrown:the list goes on and on. The weapons are really precise and do not recoil out of control. They are also the best weapons on any CoD title: M4A30 sniper, M4 Carbine, MP5 :D-they are all amazing. The killstreaks are 3,5 and 7 which yes is a bit dull and there is very little customisation other than the classes, but it runs to level 55 and has the best 10 prestige badges BY FAR. Earning camos through headshots is the BEST way to do it, and the gold guns are very rewarding. However, there is no host migration, which can be annoying, and unfortunately, as the game is not being kept up-to-date, many people have hacked it so advertisements appear and many people can glitch on any map (yesterday people were walking around the sky). Take this aside, there are many legit lobbies full of honest gamers.
MW is a brilliant, epic, rememberable game-end of story
