There are plenty of options for those finished with the Campaign mode, with the Special Ops and a huge multiplayer experience to take part in. Special Ops lets you assault a variety of custom-designed missions based on the Campaign mode, either alone or co-operatively (split screen or online), with awards dished out for timely and efficient completion.
Delving into the Multiplayer mode reveals equally slick and compelling gameplay, where you can take part in a number of scenarios, such as a free-for-all shoot out, Capture the Flag and various team matches for up to 18 players online.
Along with the imaginative level design and fast gameplay which is very easy to get into, Multiplayer mode grips you by rewarding good play and encouraging you to continue when you're not performing at your best. Whether you win or lose, each match earns you experience points which increases your profile's rank and unlocks more of the game. New weapons, bonuses, abilities and equipment becomes available, you can customise your Title, Emblem and Class so you start off with your favourite gear, and more environments and modes open up.
There are a massive number of accolades you can earn for your activities, such as getting the most kills with a certain type of weapon, gaining revenge on the player who killed you last and outstanding accuracy.
With its air strikes, auto guns, audio cues to let you know who's winning, and dramatic use of music to ratchet up the tension, there's a lot to take in for the Multiplayer mode of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 - which is all the more reason why it's so much fun. Lock, load and get ready for an explosive experience.
