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 »


Even though the game takes place in 2016, the International Space Station looks like how it did in 2002-2005, not using its current design. See more »

24 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This has everything the old call of duty had and more the battles are more intense and on a epic scale.

Your put right back into the action as the marines or the sas the story is epic putting you in to a global war..

The characters are really believable and you feel really close to them by the end of the story especially ghost who for some reason was my favourite even though he didn't really say much he was just cool.

The game play is intense with bullets whizzing passed your head and your comrades fighting back against the onslaught of Russians.There is nothing wrong with the game play its perfect even though the story may have been a bit short.

The graphics are amazing playing on a Sony bravia on hd blew me away such rich colours and intense sound.

The multiplayer is addictive as usual playing hours without noticing and the new perks are brilliant which add a whole new depth to the game play making it more interesting..

Its also nice to see that that captain mactavish is back and fighting leading the British forces to victory.

Truly Amazing a must buy!!!!!!
