Storyline

Five years after the events of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (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. Written by David C. and callofduty.wikia.com

Trivia

In the mission called 'The Gulag' where you infiltrate a prison to rescue 'Prisoner 627', you enter a shower room. Eagle eyed players will have noticed that this shower room is identical to one in 1996 film, 'The Rock'. This is one of many references this game makes to 'The Rock'. See more »

Goofs

The atmospheric nuclear detonation that destroys the ISS would, in fact, not do so. The lack of atmosphere would almost totally nullify the usual heat and blast wave effects associated with a nuclear explosion. See more »

Quotes

soldier 1: ["Team Player"; waiting for the bombing run] Hey, isn't this danger close for the task force?
Corporal Dunn: C'mon, since when does Shepherd care about danger close?

The BEST FPS I have ever played - no exaggeration.
7 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This morning, my heart stopped. My mum walked in to my room while I was laying in bed, and brought out a game from behind her back. Guess what arrived three days early? Yes, I have already completed the campaign of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and it is phenomenal. The amount of action, guns and gore will keep you satisfied. Every level is as good as the next, with settings from airports to Afghanistan. OK, there is one controversial level that you have probably already heard of, but you have the opportunity to skip it - I wouldn't, because it plays a vital part in the storyline. Just try and stomach the bloodshed.

Talking of gore, the amount of it has been notched up from its predecessor. Blood splatters over your HUD when shot, and a large puddle of blood spreads under your dead enemies, depending on where you shot/stabbed them. It is extremely realistic - hence the UK's 18 rating.

I won't give away much about the ending - all I will say is there is a huge twist, a boat and a throwing knife.

I am amazed at the quality of this fantastic CoD - it will keep the rest of this year filled. A definite 10 out of 10.
