Did You Know?


As this game is not a literal sequel of any Call of Duty game, like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2009) was with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2007) Gary Oldman is the second actor to reprise a role from an earlier game (Call of Duty: World at War (2008)). The first actor to reprise his role was Billy Murray as Cpt. Price in the 'Modern Warfare' series. See more »


Unless Dragovich implanted a radio somewhere in Hudson's body, which is doubtful, there is no way that he should be able to hear the numbers broadcasts, which are radio broadcasts and as such require the appropriate equipment to receive. See more »

Different,but not necessarily bad
4 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

An awesome game.Singleplayer campaign is very fun and interesting,but it's not a COD style and that's probably why so many people don't like it.

In my opinion every Call Of Duty had a good story,especially first MW and it was always a good thing,of course.But this time they overdid it.In FPS,story should be there just so that the game doesn't get boring,but here you spend 50% of the time watching scripted events without actually participating.There are two whole missions where you don't even draw a weapon of any kind.

Don't get me wrong,like I said,the whole campaign is great,but it just doesn't feel like COD.Story has MUCH bigger role than in any of previous games and there are a lot more scripted events.

Multiplayer is well-balanced,one of the best so far,but there are lot of technical issues which will hopefully be corrected by future patches.

And finally,it's one hell of a game that took COD franchise in totally new direction.Good or bad,it's up to you to decide.

P.S. Forgive me if I made grammar mistakes,my English isn't exactly perfect.
