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.

Did You Know?


If the first Modern Warfare game is set in 2011 than the second game is set in 2016 as Sheperd says in the opening that 5 years had passed since the end of Call of Duty 4. See more »


In the cut scene in space you see the missile detonate over Washington DC. There are no clouds at all anywhere near the East coast, then later, from the ground you can see clouds in the sky as the sun is setting. later it begins raining and by the middle part of the mission it is raining quite hard. A storm of this magnitude would have been very easy to see from space. See more »

User Reviews

A great game for fans of Call of Duty games
4 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

The Good: New, intense singleplayer campaign, new multiplayer features, spec-ops mode adds more stunning, engaging action, quite deeper multiplayer progression

The Bad: Full-priced on PC and no dedicated servers (dedicated servers is an option that allows mods and custom-made stuff to run), meaning no user-created content can be played, inconsistent plot, campaign's a little too short

The Ughly: None

Conclusion: Modern Warfare 2 is one of the best shooters containing stunning visuals and performance. Its quality can be great to look at!
