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? The story follows new Tier 1 Operatives around the globe stopping minor calamities to possibly major catastrophes by any means necessary.
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. Even though it wasn't a "Call of Duty killer" as some had hoped, Medal of Honor did well enough to warrant a sequel.
Conclusion: Overall, despite the frustrating hit detection concerns and the disorderly storyline, the single player game is reasonable – not great by any means, but reasonable. But the bulk of the game will be played as a multiplayer shooter and it is this part of the game where Medal of Honor: Warfighter does rather well. It doesn’t do a whole lot different from its major competitors, but the addition of the Fireteam buddy system is a good one...
Pros: The game is a visual treat. Home Run multiplayer mode is a nice feature.
Cons: Hit detection issues cause some frustration. Story is a little disjointed.
Summary: Electronic Arts' first-person shooters haven't exactly hit their target in the last few years, as some barely impressed fans of the genre, like Bulletstorm, while others managed to surprise everyone, like Battlefield 3.
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
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..until you play it. Not only is Medal of Honor: Warfighter , the latest in the long running shooter series from EA and Dangerclose disappointing, it borders on embarrassing.
