Modern Warfare 2′s 5 biggest plot holes

KoKuGamer: In my previous Tuesday List, I wrote a small blurb about the outright silliness of Modern Warfare 2’s plot, and how idiotic it was. In fact, I would go so far as to say that the plot of Modern Warfare 2 is quite possibly one of the worst written plots in the history of video games. Essentially, the storyline serves no other purpose but to string together a bunch of explosions for people to gawk at. In this day and age, there really isn’t an excuse for having such a poor story unless you’re making a Mario game. However, Modern Warfare 2 seems to revel in its stupidity, not realizing that it takes any sort of precepts of realism and steers them right toward the uncanny valley at one hundred twenty miles per hour.

wasnt aware there was a PLOT in COD games.

Baka-akaB2993d ago

in mw2 there certainly isnt , at the very least

WhittO2993d ago (Edited 2993d ago )

Ye if your game uses a mission briefing at a loading screen as the main plot device then...your game has no plot lol.

Look at the plot of MW2 to Killzone 2, just not even comparable...

rockleex2993d ago

The missions were mindblowing at times too.

MW2? Just plain BS.

Marquis_de_Sade2992d ago

Agreed Whitto, and Killzone 2's plot was hardly something to write home about either.

I've been saying this for a long time the plot is full of soo many holes loool

wiggles2993d ago

I love how the months when Alan Wake and Heavy Rain were released there were soo many articles like omg so many plot holes!...

But then no one decides to shred the easiest game to rip apart plot holes lol

Baka-akaB2993d ago (Edited 2993d ago )

disagrees ? how refreshing .. the game literally starts on a mission (no russian) that makes no absolute sense whatsoever , be it from the infiltrated american's point of view , or makarov's men .

COD4 wasnt shakespeare for sure , but it's going from the level of a good ol' fashioned movie liek The Hunt for Red October or Patriot Games , to the level of crap like Assault on Devil's Island with hulk hogan with an hefty dosage of Red Dawn

iamnsuperman2993d ago

When one super power invades another super power for little reason it is safe to say there is no plot......Nato forces would attack the Russians immediately if they did invade America.....Infinity ward just went crazy with the story

BattleAxe2993d ago

The only plot hole I had a "BIG" problem with was the fact that no other countries like Canada or European Union had any information to give to the Americans regarding the entire Russian army flying over Canadian and European air space, not to mention that Russian aircraft carriers would have encountered other naval vessels from other countries. You could float an aircraft carrier through that plot hole.

iamnsuperman2993d ago

It seamed infinity ward clearly do not believe that other countries like Canada and the European union exist.....So many radars would of picked them up and they would have been attack by flying illegally into their airspace. The just really messed the whole story up

Killzone 2's plot ain't nothing special either. It may have no plotholes but story and character wise is was just as paperthin. Rico is the biggest doosh nozzle ever and did you honestly care about Garza's death? KZ2 is fun to play online and off, the graphics kick major tooshy and the art style is sick, but storywise, yeah it pretty much sucks.

@dinorawrr. Yeah, I know they are different, and nope I didn't care about MW2's character's either. That is why I am saying storywise they are on the same level. Games like Bioshock, Metal Gear Solid, and Uncharted 2 bitch slap both KZ2 and MW2 in story and characters.

itsralf2993d ago

Character development and Plot are two different things, sir. Yes, GG could have done a better job with their characters... But did you honestly care about any of the people in MW2?

ReservoirDog3162993d ago

CoD4 had one of the best war stories in video games. The rest? Not so much.

Sarcasm2993d ago

MW2 is a plot hole in itself.

Nothing makes sense.

Daddy-O_242992d ago

that game zucks you die really easy

"This sounds like the masturbatory fantasy of Glenn Beck"
I loled so hard

davidlandrum2993d ago

You obviously haven't watched Glenn Beck's show nor has the writer of the article.

MidnightWatcher2993d ago

He is a right-wing asshole who thinks Obama is a Communist and that China will soon own America. Also, he has mentioned many times that he thinks Russia is still a communist country so the author's point is pretty valid

Ziriux2992d ago

@ david

Must be a Glenn Beck fan? The guy is a purse ignorant piece of crap.

Lich1202992d ago

Also, he cries a lot. Which is funny, up until the point when you realize that people actually listen to his advice.

iamnsuperman2993d ago (Edited 2993d ago )

one thing I never got was why captain price was locked up..... In Cod 4 he saved the day what ever condition he was in surely he would of been sent back to the UK the second game is 5 years later. Lets humour the fact it probably takes a year or so of planning a revolution considering their leader and high generals of the revolution are dead. did he just chill in Russia for a year and waited to get capture

Garrus_Vakarian2993d ago (Edited 2993d ago )

lol @ taking MW2's story seriously

Meowhammad2993d ago (Edited 2993d ago )

Baka-akaB2993d ago (Edited 2993d ago )

I lol in turn @ people wasting their time online with it .
