Vladimir Makarov, a brutal leader and former associate of Imran Zakhaev, has set in motion a series of events that will threaten global security.

Pure cocaine-fueled modern-shooter

The Single-player

The story continues from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. In the opening sequence you get a flash from the past, filling you in with some key elements from the previous game. Modern Warfare 2 is set in multiple locations, which makes it full of twist and turns. Similar to the previous game you follow along on two different campaigns with the same goal; defeating the Russians. U.S Army Rangers battling invading Russians on American soil, and S.A.S who has more varied locations and high-profile tasks and targets. If you want the real challenge, play on Veteran Difficulty. Fantastic single-player with both memorable and unpredictable moments.

The multiplayer

Although in it's prime it still had some flaws. Even more now with hackers and "noob-tubers" taking over, the multiplayer on Modern Warfare 2 is still absolutely the best part of the game. Every map design is perfect. All the various spots and "hidden places" on maps are incredible. There's so many approaches to the maps. There isn't a single map that is boring. Honest! All the weapons has a purpose and you have a large selection to choose from. The various challenges to unlock pro perks, to unlock cameos and various attachment on weapons, doing challenges to boost your rank and get awesome emblems and titles. You can also have 1v1 on Rust if you have reputation to keep. You'll keep coming back for more and more. Best multiplayer I've ever played. P.S Intervention is the best sniper is Call of Duty history!

Special Ops

The special ops is mostly meant to be played with a friend via split-screen or via online matchmaking. You can choose to go at it alone but it will be quite difficult, especially the more missions you unlock. Note that some of the missions actually requires you to play with another player. The levels are unlocked after acquiring stars from completion of levels. 3 stars is the maximum per level. The operations are Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta and Echo. All with various missions. Alpha being the easiest stage and Echo being the last stage and the toughest. The great thing about Special Ops is the various levels and challenges. Everything from being a AC-130 gun-man to defusing bombs in the streets of Brazil. It really gives you variation. Some of these levels are so tough, you'll be spending hours on them. Also worth noting is the level "Hidden" which is in level Charlie. If you've played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare it's a real trip down memory lane.

The single-player: 8/10

The multiplayer: 10/10

Special Ops: 8/10

This game might be a little old but if you love FPS games this is a must have! Great graphics, story, multiplayer and special ops.

Cheers from Norway
