Modern Warfare 2 was the big turning point in the Call of Duty series for many fans. While COD 4 was unanimously acclaimed and well-received, MW2 did not enjoy the same level of praise. So what's the deal? Was this game nothing more than a product of it's time? Or is there some secret formula to the franchises success hidden away?
Only one way to find out...

10:09 if you think about it it kinda makes sense as Makarov and his men don't speak in Russian during the missin and they were using american NATO weapons to frame the US but I get your point

Oh btw Russia declared war because they never spoke any other language but American, only used American weapons, and an American was left dead at the airport and I think I read about one of the other terrorists was a former us operator who switched teams that’s why his accent is so good bc he’s from America, only reason they probably never found Yuri to be a terrorists was bc he was shot in the stomach by one of their own guns and he didn’t have his vest on, even if they found the pistol in pretty sure it was one of the cops pistols he had so he was all covered. Obviously negotiations would be done but war probably wasn’t declared that same day, the writers just chose not to include that boring detail because it would throw off the momentum of the story. At the end of the day their point was “an American shot atleast 300 Russians and now everybody in Russia hates america” especially taking into account how manipulative the media can be, everybody was mad about it.

I’m certain this has been said a zillion times but can you fucking imagine what kind of hysteria it would cause if a studio released a game with a “No Russian” type mission in it today?? If it made THAT much of a ripple in the water 10 years ago, boy oh boy would it be a thousand times worse in today’s social climate. Crazy. Personally, I’m not offended or bothered by violence depicted in video games, so why it drives others so mad is beyond me. Some People don’t have the skills to differentiate I suppose...

You said that halo 3 is better cause it requier more skill and have more time to kill, but the fact that you can drop someone wiled west style in a one second gunfight is goddamn fucking impressive and it do requier skill, just a different kind. you also have to know your serounding and power spots and what not, wich in my book, is a skill too. You can't say that mw2 players have "less skill" than halo players, they just have a diferent one. Love both game tho. Btw sorry about my english.

I'm impressed but remember U.S.A and Russia are at each others throats just waiting for a reason to declare war on each other........what made you think Russia will investigate when they're given this opportunity.......THEY JUST GOT A REASON TO REMOVE A THORN BY THEIR SIDE WITHOUT ANY RESISTANCE FROM OTHER CAPITALIST COUNTRIES.......THEY'LL NEVER LET THAT OPPORTUNITY SLIDE BY.........but I do agree that the media is a pain in the a** cuz they'll do any thing to cover up corruptions of those who pay them.....INCLUDING BLAMING VIDEO GAMES FOR EVERYTHING.........I HATE FOX NEWS.........I HATE DONALD TRUMP.....AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH

Very few good maps. Ridiculously overpowered and unbalanced weapons. One man army and grenade launchers. Shotgun secondaries. Weapon attachments not working. Danger CLOSE! This game is viewed by most with rose tinted glasses. Great fun for casuals who want to have a few beers with friends though.

I love how the multiplayer maps are loosely based on campaign missions. Terminal-No Russian, Estate-Loose Ends, Rust-Endgame, Favela-Favela obviously, and I love how they’re all inspired by the main story but not exact copies either, as if the multiplayer battles are nearby skirmishes happening during the main story. Just a cool detail I noticed.

Agreed, even though those fucking propipe blasting one-man-assholes were cancerous as fuck, the MW2 multiplayer is still the best multiplayer CoD experience I've ever had. But admittedly I've only played WaW, MW1, MW2, MW3, BO and BO4. Luckily I was forced to skip all those garbage cashgrabs between BO and BO4 because of my sudden and very acute allergy to microtransation infested shit shows.😁👍

This game's multiplayer is great, but the problem (nowerdays) is that there are accounts called "MW2 dedicated (Game type)" this makes the whole server searching terrible and inconsistent. If that's not enough, there are hackers everywhere.

Everybody talks about No Russian but I'm over here praising how perfectly chilling and executed the Washington D.C. trilogy was, like seriously who remembers exiting the underground bunker to the heart of the USA in literal flames, even more so accompanied by the cue of the theme? Such a god damn powerful moment and although I didn't understand the impact at the time, I'm thankful that I played the classic COD games when growing up.

The greatest time I had playing Call of Duty was playing Modern Warfare 2. I loved me some Black Ops 2, but the rush was never like Modern Warfare 2. BO2 forced me into a completely different element. That's what I came to love about it. I guess if a newer game is different one must adapt. I went from a nasty sniper in MW2 to a run and gunnin' MK48 killer (due to BO2 destroying breath sniping). I never dreamed of laying down my WA2000 or .50 Cal. But I had no choice but to adapt, and came to loved it. BO2 was the last COD I've played. I'm older now and moved on. Enjoy these new games younguns! Old man is out.
