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?

AHEM, now that ive got ur attention, there is one tiny detail u missed to point out in the video, THE ELECTRONIC SIGHTS ON GUNS DONT WORK WHEN THE EMP GOES OFF, basically making iron sights your only hope of acurate aiming, so please, read this, oh and also, I would love to see a CoD1, CoD2, or CoD3 video like this one, PLZ, I have CoD2 and 3, not 1 tho

The Russians didn't assume Americans did it, they saw that the attackers used American guns & ammo. Makarov says "Remember, No Russian" because Americans usually don't speak Russian, they want it to seem like America supported it.

Hey, I’m just going to defend how realistic it is, because the cops pull out their guns but get mowed down, the citizens are in the effects of shock and that last reason is fair, but remember their elite and well-trained soldiers specifically chosen to do this mission

Technically the last invasion on Us soil was on the island of attu the Japanese invaded in ww2 but it wasn’t us yet so the last battle in us was the battle of wounded knee when we fought against natives but yeah last invasion was war of 1812 with us vs british

There is an explanation for that flaw in the story.If you read the news papers in Lose Ends you can see that the Russian government accused US of helping in the attack.You know supplying them, bc from their history from the US they can really be sceptical.IMO it's cool that the players that like look at these little details in the mission find explanations for some things in the story that feel off.

10:35 I think it's the fact that the U.S. government sent a CIA agent to do a terrorist attack killing a ton of civilians just to get closer to a terrorist, Russia didn't think that was a good tactic. Think about it, after 9/11 we attacked Iraq, and they weren't even involved.

One thing about mw2 that no one seems to compare to all the other shooters just just how fucking smooth everything was. Recoil wasnt some random thing, it felt smooooth. Even guns that had alot of recoil. Animatioms were smooth. Also everything was so op nothing was. You could run around 2 shotting people with any gun. It was so much fun.

The multiplayer was sooooo GOOD, I had played tdm rush routes the whole time, and I had alternate routes for when there were UAVs up, or cover routes for harriers/chopper gunners, I could still have fun if my team was cheeks, new Cods the other team gets top tier streaks and there is just nowhere to go, you end up quitting because its just not fun

One of my favorite missions is the one after the EMP explodes. Especially with headphones on, I love hearing the pouring rain, and chilling tone and the way the soldiers are terrified and constantly on edge. God it makes me wet thinking about it

“Of course last time that happened we pushed back those fucking redcoats” Mate, if you’re referring to the War of 1812 I’ve got bad news for ya. You lost that one, considering that America failed in it’s goal of invading Canada. And that’s not even mentioning the fact that we did all that while fighting Napoleon.
