War as you've never seen it before

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the sixth installment of this famous FPS. As one of the most acclaimed in the series, it's an epic shooter that improves on its predecessors. 

Fight around the world

CoD is the most famous first-person shooter franchise, and Modern Warfare is one of the most acclaimed episodes, both for players and critics alike. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 seems to be better than its predecessor in almost everything, except maybe innovation.

The storyline of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 starts in Russia, where you'll encounter a thriving ultra-nationalist group led by the bloodthirsty terrorist Makarov. It's up to Task Force 141 and Gary "Roach" Sanderson, one of the five characters you can become, to stop this group and put an end to the conflict.

In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the action will take place all around the globe, from Afghanistan to Brazil, the Caucasus to the USA. The game's plot is still spectacular and full of twists and turns, as the CoD franchise has increasingly turned to the popular genres of Hollywood films and series.

Exceptional multiplayer gameplay

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has very hectic gameplay, and timing and precision are key to defeat your enemies. The response to controls is great, while the scenery and the atmosphere will take you into the battlefield.

In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, to be the protagonist you don't play the single player mode, but the multiplayer, both competitive and cooperative, with special missions that enrich the gameplay and increase the arsenal at your disposal. In the multiplayer game mode, you have different options such as Team Deathmach, Sabotage, and Capture The Flag. 

Technically flawless

Graphically, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is almost flawless. The quality and definition of the graphics helps to make the gaming experience truly unique, and the soundtrack by Hans Zimmer adds another level of excellence.

The only flaw of this game is that it doesn't innovate much compared to its predecessor, and it doesn't bring back the wonder of some dramatic turn of events.
