You will likely jump down my throat, call me a whole bunch of names, and vow to never read my work again. And that's all good, if you're a 13-year old who doesn't wish to read and understand the opinion of one game critic, who strongly believes that even though Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is a great game, it doesn't offer nearly enough groundbreaking material to warrant a 9.0. And in fact, at times, the game feels like it's taken a few steps backward in some instances. And before the alarmists and conspiracy-theorists come to claim I'm doing this to get attention, don't even waste your time. If I was, indeed trying to whore in the attention, I'd have given Modern Warfare 2 a score much lower than an 8.9. Moreover, I'd probably choose a massive 1st party game, say, like Uncharted 2, instead of a multi-platform title. Again, it's important to keep your cool and read through the whole review to see where I'm coming from."
