Every single mission depicts what is supposed to be happening in America , So called Martial Law. One of the missions even exploits Washington D.C 's New headquarters . Why would they let this information out for all them mindless drones to ignore , with all the answers directly in front of them... I hope my assumptions are wrong but Reply with opinions please!

not every single mission is, but the one(s) that are (cant remember the exact number, havent played on the xbox in a while) based in america are pretty hard hitting for a game, flags outside homes, burning trees & homes etc.
i'd say the issue is probably more to do with, are they preparing people to do this by getting them used to seeing it?
i mean i played it the first time, i was like "wow, this is a lot more hard-hitting than some of the other missions" graphically and for the political narrative but the second time it was just a road with people to be killed on it and houses that they were using as cover.

not that i think they're brainwashing me to join the army or anything like that, just that theres a switch of mindset that stops you seeing it as a neighbourhood with innocent people living in it and you see it as a battlefield.

I have to say it's only a game. Entertainment. I didn't even think it was that violent or hard hitting really.

It has to be the way it was otherwise it wouldn't be any good.

"America, this is Russia, can we invade you please?"

"Russia, this is America, no you cant."

"America, Russia again, fair enough."

The end.

It's a great game though. My favourite part:

I don't think you've played the game.....

There is a level that starts in an Airport. All you have is a heavy machine and you and 4 other Russians just start SLAYING people.....

I have played the game and that's just the point, it's a game. When you start blurring the lines between real life and fantasy you are in big trouble.



Saving Private Ryan, a great film. This part in particular garnered a lot of praise from critics for its realism and the way it was shot.

Violent isn't it?

But it's just a film. At least Saving Private Ryans Omaha Beach sequence is an event that actually happened.

MW:2 is just a game, and in the grand scale of things, not a very violent one.

I found modern warfare 2 to have a pretty unrealistic storyline.

So I'm supposed to believe that the Russians would be able to fly thousands of planes towards the US without even being noticed?

Ya right.

It was a great game though... I especially enjoyed the gulag level

I must agree with this. In fact, the more I play (especially in multiplayer), the more I feel as though I'm shooting bb guns.

None of the weapons, with the exception of the knife (lol), have the power they have in real life. NONE.

Besides the fact that Infinity Ward has completely disregarded the PC nation...the ones that gave them the very foundation this genre started on.

It's really nothing short of a monumental disappointment. I've been playing the original for a good two weeks now. I'll wait for COD7:MW3. I can only hope Treyarch will take the reigns again.

Much like this thread, everything associated with COD6:MW2 is an epic fail. If they really wanted to mess with people's minds, they'd first have to make sure people play it.

It is very possible, remember it happened before!

Cudo's to you...it seems as though your standards of classic are apparently not the same as mine.

I've been heavily into the software industry since the early 1980's. Trust me or not, this game is will not be played past this year. It certainly could have been, no doubt, but the half-a$$ed approach Infinity Ward took toward the PC world (choosing to "sell-out" to the console industry [not my quote]) will most certainly be its demise long before it achieves "Classic" status.

And no, I'm not a console hater...as I said, I've been in it long enough to know to have all 3 and a PC just to make sure I never lose whatever edge 28 years of experience gives you. I love it ALL. I simply believe they're making a monumental error in judgment by disregarding 'realism' in game and the PC & Mac industry as a whole. I DO have good things to state about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2...but the problems the PC world is reporting, and that my own game experience is telling me, are too foundational to be ignored and taken aback by it's obvious merit.

Whew!...mkay...I think I'll go shoot my GOLD AK47 for awhile.


EDIT: Peace!

I agree with, the game was extremely unrealistic. I missed the somewhat realistic tone of the first Modern Warfare.

However, at first of sounding like a video game nerd, but I think the Russians were able to stage the sneak attack on the US thanks to the downed "ACS module" that was in the second level. Game was a bit vague on that though.
