Summary: Shooting in Warfighter is excellent, and the presentation is great, but it doesn't stop the game from being broken literally, and thematically.
Pros: Lighting and detailed textures breathe life into the game's environments, Guns feel realistic and satisfying
Cons: Glitchy gameplay becomes annoying and repetitive, The game's story is told poorly, and directly conflicts with gameplay, There's nothing new here; even the game's most exciting moments are outdated, forgettable and lazy
Excerpt: Picture the scene: You're creeping through an Afghan wadi, covering your squad mates' approach with suppressive fire on an enemy machine gun encampment. Dust is being kicked up by running and bullets, and the piecing glare of the red-hot sun is so bright it makes looking far into the horizon...
Conclusion: Medal of Honor tries to cram in every trick it can conjure up, but ultimately fails to include the kind of staying power needed to take over from Call of Duty . The four hour single-player story simply isn’t enough, and the online option doesn’t have that staying power to dissuade shooter fans from...
Excerpt: There’s a kind of tingly feeling as you start playing Metro 2033 , based on the book of the same name by Dmitry Glukhovsky, a subconscious summation of too much data to consciously be aware of. A summation some might call ‘a premonition’.
Excerpt: Pity poor Medal of Honor. Looking to cash in on the current trend of rebooting anything more than a few months old, EA threw its flagship FPS out of the over-covered age of angry Nazis and Thompson machineguns and tried to bring it bang up to date.
Conclusion: Does feel a bit rushed to get out before Call of Duty, but overall is a solid game. Medal of Honor definitely could be a lot better with more polish and less linear gameplay. The multiplayer portion may not be able to stand up against its competitors.
Summary: Medal of Honor re-enters the crowded FPS market with a modern war setting that will likely not shock anyone. While seemingly conflicted at its core, Medal of Honor is a refreshing break from the likes of Call of Duty, just don't expect it to have as big of an impact.
Pros: The realistic war setting, The easy to use and varied gameplay mechanics, Despite its flaws, the multiplayer can provide a fun and fast-paced experience
Cons: The overly scripted and familiar campaign, The numerous visual and gameplay bugs, The lack of overall depth to the multiplayer
Excerpt: Following in the footsteps of that other World War II first person shooter, Medal of Honor is taking the fight to a current wartime setting. With this revamp of the series, players will be brought into the war in Afghanistan.
