Runs good on 4850 since it was primarily made for console's with lower graphics power. But game sucks compared to part 1.

If you *must* get it you're better off getting the 360 version.

I have both the Xbox and the PC game. I think its looks and plays better on PC but I'm useless with a controller.

On console version you can play 2 player online, something I wish every game had.

My brother just came up from Calgary for the holidays and installed it on my comp through his Steam account. The game is decent but definitely NOT worth the asking price. If there are still a good amount of dedi servers for the original Modern Warfare, I'd go for the original over 2. In my hour of play today I was dropped twice and had to migrate hosts on multiple occasions. Not to mention the ping is almost never optimal.

I would say don't buy it till it drops in price. There are some features taken out (well a lot of the important ones) and some features added but overall this game is too expensive. Wait till it drops down to like $20-$30. I own it so I can judge it unlike so many people. There are some good parts to the single player but it is too short and too crappy. The single player is unbelievable and not exciting. MW1 had a brilliant single player with many moments that you will remember. The multiplayer for MW2 is worse than MW1. So save your money and buy something else and vote for dragon age origins as game of the year :p!
