Leaked footage. Politicians up in arms over violent content. Huge pre-orders and a no-holds-barred red carpet launch event. Modern Warfare 2 is one of the most hyped games of all time but why not forget the furore and find out for yourself what all the fuss is about. Yes, some of the levels push the boundaries of what some might find acceptable, but this is an unashamedly adult depiction of war. Yes, the price is high, but shop cleverly and you should be able to bag a bargain. The action is unsurpassed and, while proficient FPS fans will rattle through MW2 at a brisk pace, there's plenty to keep you coming back for more.
