Synonymous with disappointing. Although the campaign was pretty good, and Special Ops is fun, the multiplayer is completely broken. And let's face it, multiplayer is what matters most in today's video games. You generally have three types of players in MW2:
The camper: Pretty self-explanatory. This guy is the one in a room laying down aiming at the doorway waiting for you to walk by so he can get an easy kill. He does this because he isn't skilled enough to actually go out and look for people. Generally uses instant kill weapons like shotguns or assault rifles.
The 5-year-old: The main reason why most people spend more time muting their teammates than shooting at the other team. These kids are constantly yelling, whether it be at his teammates, or at his mom to bring him a sandwich.
The Commando: These guys make you want to rip your hair out and throw the controller into your TV. They are the guys that have the Commando perk and the Lightweight perk on and just run around the map at 30 mph knifing everyone. What makes this worse is that they are immune to bullets. If you try to shoot them down with your gun, they will just absorb all of them and knife you.
Overall, these three types of MW2 gamers all fall into one big category: noob.
Example of a typical Modern Warfare 2 Team Deathmatch:
As soon as the match starts, Player 1 immediately mutes half of his teammates because they are all yelling and arguing with each other when suddenly he gets sniped in the face. He respawns and takes no more than two steps before being knifed by a Commando. Respawning again, he decides to try to snipe the Commando. He goes into a building but gets killed by a Camper with dual-Rangers. Now, he is going to try to kill the camper, but comes across the Commando, who knifes him again.
Player 1 rage quits.
