Did You Know?


The level name S.S.D.D may be a reference to Stephen King's novel, 'Dreamcatcher'. S.S.D.D ("Same Shit, Different Day") is a phrase used through out the book by the main characters. Also, Shepherd's first line in the cut scene, "The more things change, the more they stay the same" might also be a small reference to King's 'Thinner', where the line is spoken. See more »


The MH-53 "Pavelow" helicopter which is featured throughout the game is actually U.S. Air Force's (USAF) version of the HH-53 series of heavy lift helicopters. The "Pavelow" was a super heavy lift helicopter used for combat search and rescue and special operations by the USAF. The MH-53 was retired from all active U.S. military service in 2008. See more »

Nikolai: Looks like it still is. They'll be looking for us, you know.

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.
