Uh-oh.

Russia has recalled all copies of Modern Warfare 2, thanks to the inclusion of the airport level in the game.

Infinity Ward has patched the PC version in the country to get rid of the level completely, with an edited retail version due for release in stores shortly.

Thats not all though, nuh-uh. Russian gamers aren’t pleased that the game’s centric plot revolves around a US/Russian war.

Amazing stuff, innit.
