| The war for the world
This is a terrific tittle. The sequel to Call of duty modern warfare brings the same gameplay with a few improvements. Using the same engine as the previous games the graphics are very similar to COD:4 the gore of the game is excellent and much more realistic than the gore in Cod:4. For example when you get a grenade thrown at you your leg may come off or your arm, this holds true for the equivalent of the 50 calibre sniper rifle in the game.

The story line of the game is just amazing, the intense action makes you feel in the game. The story line is very similar to that of Cod:4 with an intense sniper mission and a bombardment mission with an added tank mission. The added Nazi Zombie mini game is very fun to play and a welcome extra for any sequels.

I, myself are not at all upset that infinity ward decided to go back to World War 2 , in fact that is what I was hoping for considering that all the other world war 2 call of duty games were not nearly as good as COD:4 I was expecting them to go back and make a proper World War 2 game.

All in all the game is just as great as COd:4 if not better , only differences are: The WW2 setting, More intense gore, more perks, Tank playing and a little bit better graphics. recommended to buy.

Ps please don't let your self's be convinced by all the hype and criticism go and try it yourself.

Trivia

Sgt. Roebucks weapon of choice was a Shotgun on Little Resistance, but is also seen with other weapons in the game such as the B.A.R (Or Browning Automatic Rifle).


Quotes

Pvt. Chernov: April 30th, 1945. When he first spoke of Dimitri, Reznov told tales of a hero, someone we should all aspire to be like. His merciless brutality defines in more ways a savage, just like the rest of the Red Army. He is no hero.


Goofs

Although this is one of the only video games to reenact the Battle of Peleliu, there were many historical errors. Sullivan says at the beginning of the battle that the fighting was going to be three days when it was expected to be four. Of course the battle lasted two months. Also the LVT you are on is too small and too fast to be the ones used in World War II. The carrier that launched it was also way too close to the beach as it was way further out in the actual landing. The coral you get stuck on actually could not stop an LVT, and could easily be rolled over. The terrain on Peleliu in the game looks like it is a jungle island when it was a island mostly with coral terrain and sand. Throughout the levels you are on Peleliu you encounter many Japanese banzai charges, but there were almost no banzai charges during the actual battle. Also the Japanese were mostly fighting in underground bunkers and not out in the open as depicted in the game. In the game you take the airfield on the same day as the landing, but it was not captured until the next day. There was also no counter-attack to retake the airfield as depicted in the game.
