Medal Of Honor Warfighter – Review (360, PS3, PC)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: Tossed in the middle of a crowded Autumn lineup is EA and Danger Close’s sequel to 2010′s Medal of Honor, subtitled with Warfighter. Enhanced by the power of Frostbite 2, does Warfighter send a chill down your spine or just leave you in the cold?
Conclusion: Medal of Honor: Warfighter isn't a bad shooter. It's just a pretty predictable one that repeats the moments we already saw in other games in the genre. It does add a few interesting things, from the driving sequences to the multiplayer's Fire Team mechanic, but it's not enough to make it stand out...
Pros: +Impressively realistic graphics, +Novel Fire Team multiplayer mechanic
Cons: -Missions aren't that impressive, -Visuals are too gritty and murky, -Story fails to capture the player
Conclusion: 2010's Medal of Honor was EA's attempt to take a piece of the military FPS market that has been dominated by Activision's Call of Duty. Like CoD, Medal of Honor went from the beaches of Normandy to the deserts of the Middle East to bring the series into modern times.

Excerpt: Sometimes you have to feel sorry for the Medal of Honor series. People often forget that it predates the vastly more successful Call of Duty series by years and even its own publisher treats it as “the other military shooter” to the Battlefield series. That is, you have to feel sorry for it.
