Five years after the events of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare I (2007), Russia is in political turmoil once again. Vladimir Makarov, a brutal leader and former associate of Imran Zakhaev, has set in motion a series of events that will threaten global security. After a series of vicious terrorist attacks, the situation is deemed dangerous enough for Task Force 141, led by Captain Soap MacTavish and Co., to be deployed all around the world, attempting to track down Makarov and restore peace.

Did You Know?


Fan favorite multiplayer map Favela was temporarily taken down on October 6th, 2012 after picture frames with Islamic writing on them saying, "Allah is beautiful and he loves beauty" was discovered in a bathroom where in the Muslim religion it is forbidden to speak of. It was later readded on October 23rd, 2012 on PlayStation 3 and December 10th, 2012 for Xbox 360 with plain black frames, but still has yet to be readded on PC. See more »


Whilst Soap is lying on the floor wounded, watching Shepherd and Price fight, you can see that the magazines in his pouches are clearly modeled on Airsoft magazines, rather than actual 5.56 ones. See more »


General Shepherd: ["S.S.D.D."; introduction/opening voiceover] The more things change, the more they stay the same. Boundaries shift, new players step in, but power always finds a place to rest its head. We fought and bled along side the Russians. We shoulda' known they'd hate us for it. History is written by the victor, and here I a thinking we won. But you bring down one enemy and they find someone even worse to replace him. Locations change, the rationale, the objective. Yesterday's enemies are today's ...

Fun, but not without flaws, mainly in multiplayer.
8 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Modern Warfare 2. Easily the most anticipated title of 2009, possibly of the decade. Fresh off the craze of Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward was set on expanding their market and making even more cash.

The campaign was certainly a lot of fun. It had brilliant action sequences and a lot of cool new settings and features. We definitely didn't see ice climbing or space sequences in the first title. However, the campaign is rather short, and I was able to breeze through it in around 5 hours. This sounds like much, but in actuality it is very short compared to other shooters like Bad Company and, ironically, Modern Warfare.

I think the producers at Infinity Ward has never heard the saying 'Less is more.' If they did, they ignored it. The multiplayer is full of failed ideas and flaws. To name a few, there is a "perk" called One Man Army. It allows you to switch to any other class whenever you want, skipping the 'wait to respawn' period. When coupled with grenade launchers, or 'Noob Tubes', as most players call them, it creates a very frustrating combination. The player is given virtually infinite grenades.

That is only one frustrating feature, albeit probably the most prominent. Bottom line is, I recommend the game if you can live with paying 60 bucks. If that's a stretch, than go for the first, Modern Warfare. It is very fun and a lot less frustrating than its sequel.
