Game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (PC) Click for more info

I'd say that COD4: Modern Warfare was the game that finally taught me what all these war FPSs were about: short, episodic, story-led gaming, accessible for gamers of all levels. Despite my initial misgivings about the first game, after completing it I found that I enjoyed it quite a bit.

This reassessment is relevant here because MW2 is, as expected, more of the same. Yet somehow it's not as exciting as the first - although there are plenty of set-pieces none seem to quite hit the mark. Where this does fare better than the first game is on a holistic level, with actions being taken by people across the globe tying up to further the simple, yet quite engaging, plot.

For those of you who, like me, don't have the sharpshooter skills you used to (or not in my case), MW2 is a pleasure to play - it gives you the chance to enjoy more than just killing and headshotting (fun as the latter might be), with a difficulty curve which makes it more accessible than unforgiving.
