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.

Trivia

At the end of the level "Wolverines". If you can protect the Turret gun from the roof of Nate's restaurant from getting destroyed and carry it to the convoy when they arrive to pick you up, you can get into the vehicle with the turret and it will pass thru solid steel. If you turn forward you can even make it float through the passenger in the front seat. See more »

Sergeant Foley: Pretty much, Corporal.

Probably the Fastest Paced Game Ever = Great. minus Noobtubes
15 April 2012 | by robot954See all my reviews

SinglePlayer - extremely short (~6 hours), even on Veteran. Missions are extremely linear, as expected (not for people that like exploring). Gameplays extremely fast paced.

Multiplayer - this is where the game is. So don't don't play online, don't even bother getting MW2 Almost any weapon is usable and can kill. Some people say guns are overpowered, but pretty much all guns are overpowered. Sniping is fun, especially QuickScoping, but can get many people frustrated.

Maps - most are quite good and well balanced. Spawntraps may be a problem in Domination.

Prestige System - pretty much everyone gets into a hacked 10th prestige lobby. If you don't, most players either regularly prestige (since MW2 is still fun with the weapons from the lower levels) or just stick to a certain prestige at level 70.

Perks - quite a few, but there are only a few that people use. And Stopping Power is needed in the 2nd slot.

Faults: Overpowered killstreaks, but they're also quite easy to get, if you're a decent player. Final stand, painkiller etc. annoying, but chances are you'll use them too, since Final stand can often get you an extra kill or even save your life. Commando - range of the knife is annoying, but many people use it, except snipers and stealth people who use Steady Aim and Ninja respectively.

OMA Noobtubes - are the absolute worst in this game, so many people use them, especially in Ground War. It is fun to use, although extremely annoying. Good players snipe instead. Whether or not you can put up with Noobtubes determines whether or not you'll like the game. If you don't worry about high streaks and a high K/D ratio, you'll have fun. Otherwise, NoobTubers will ruin your game.

Boosters are an annoyance in FFA, which makes FFA very hard to play. Host migrations are very irritating, as the game often quits after a LONG migration.

SpecOps - honestly, most people don't even play it. But if you do, its pretty fun. The maps are right out of singleplayer, with objective based missions. Some missions can be incredibly annoying. Getting 69stars is pretty hard, but possible.

Overall, the game is extremely fast paced. Pretty much everything in Multiplayer is overpowered. You die really easily, but then again, you can kill very easily too. Any player, good or bad can have fun in this game. If you can put up with Noobtubers, you'll have a lot of fun, if you can't, you'll most likely get quite annoyed with the game.
