The year is 2011, and civil war has broken out in Russia between the Russian government and Russian ultranationalists under the command of Imran Zakhaev who seek to restore Russia back to its former Soviet-style leadership. A revolution has toppled a regime in an unnamed Arabic country which has ties to the Russian ultranationalists, with Khaled al-Asad coming to power. These two simultaneous events are causing fear that al-Asad and Zakhaev might form an alliance and use nuclear weapons against the West. In response to these concerns, the United States and the United Kingdom conduct joint operations to put down both uprisings, without putting their own nations' security at risk. Will they succeed?

Beautiful. This game will make one hell of a movie.
20 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This game is well worth the price. Storyline and even the online multilayer are amazing. IW has very well succeeded in making a video game that displays real war. The ending is also worth fighting for. This is one of the rare few games that certainly are the best of the best.

When playing the musical score is excellent. It Certainly succeeds in highlighting scenes of sorrow, joy, honor, duty, and sacrifice. Also not to forget the heart pounding adrenaline when you repel out of a black hawk helicopter into a middle eastern town filling with 360 degree of danger.

A must get game!
