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?


The campaign mission "No Russian" was considered by many, many people to be one of the most controversial scenes in video game history. In fact, it was so controversial that there is an option in the pause menu to skip the mission. See more »


Makarov wants Russia convinced that the airport attack was acted purely by American terrorists, hence his men speaking only English and using US NATO weapons. Makarov is a well known terrorist, yet he does not wear a mask, nor do his men. The security cameras, and even potential survivors could have recognized him. Furthermore, Makarov did lose one of his men in the attack, who could have been identified as a Russian. Furthermore, Pvt Allen could have killed them in the airport right before or during the massacre. See more »

Where to begin? well, the plot, with twists and all, is brilliant and enjoyable. I found myself shocked and surprised at what i thought were the key moments to be shocked and surprised, which was a definite plus.

I also enjoyed the idea of a different attachment with each weapon and had fun playing around with this for hours on end! What i was stunned by were the graphics. A great improvement from a great previous game! I couldn't believe what i was seeing half the time! Multiplayer is excellent, with more incentive to play and try out different mixes of equipment in each match.

Overall, a great sequel, hats off to infinity ward, well done guys!
