Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
has gone and sold 4.7 million copies of the game in the first day breaking the record set forth by Grand Theft Auto IV
by 1.1 million according to Activision
. It also helped that every other company decided to stay away from the 10th so that their title wouldn't be pushed aside by the Infinity Ward juggernaught.
I just finished the campaign in a scant 5.5 hours so I'm in the process of playing multiplayer and special ops before I post my review. So far, I think it's a good game and had a good time with the single player portion but I feel a little underwhelmed by the experience. I'll go into more details in my review later on but I don't think it's the best game I've played this year yet.
