What is Modern Warfare 2 about?
Modern Warfare 2 is part of a Call of Duty series, a first-person shooter game developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision in 2009.
Touted as one of the most successful sequels of the Modern Warfare season, the sixth instalment “follows the Task Force 141, a special forces unit fronted by Captain Soap MacTavish, as they hunt Vladimir Makarov, leader of the Russian Ultranationalist party, and the United States Army Rangers, who are defending the country from a Russian invasion.”

“The game’s main playable characters are Sergeant Gary “Roach” Sanderson, of the 141, and Private James Ramirez, of the Army Rangers, with Captain MacTavish becoming playable later in the campaign. An expansive multiplayer mode is featured in the game, with several new features and modes that were not seen in its predecessor.”Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Wikipedia
