Medal of Honor: Warfighter
2 September 2013
Summary: Medal of Honor: Warfighter is a funny name. Yes, "Warfighter" is a term with a real-life military application, but that doesn't stop it from sounding incredibly silly. It is gratuitously macho, not to mention rather redundant. It is, however, a perfectly fitting name for one of the many annual "me too" military first-person shooters that hit the market toward the end of the year. It is, in fact, the perfect name for Danger Close's latest offering.
Excerpt: I had high hopes for Medal of Honor: Warfighter. I thought this game would finally bring the series back to its former glory… and then I played it. Now, I’m starting to get the sense that MoH is the redheaded stepchild of military style first person shooters.
Excerpt: Warfighter is a new sequel to the First Person Shooter Medal Of Honor. You play as Preacher a Tier One Solider in the Middle East as he shoots his way through a number of missions to hunt down a terrorist leader only known as “the Cleric” and stop him from distributing a new explosive called PETN Medal of Honor saw its reboot back in 2010, while the game was a huge let down of the original series, EA promised that this sequel would change the game as we know it.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter focuses on the story and the glory of various Special Ops units, but is there anything really remarkable about this modern military shooter?
Excerpt: It’s curious to reflect on the fact that the Medal of Honor series took years to shift its focus away from World War II simulations after its main competitors, the Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises, both rebooted themselves as fully modern military shooters. Its eventual attempt to follow in their footsteps, 2010’s Medal of Honor , was a disjointed affair, with single-player and multiplayer components developed by two different teams using two different gameplay...
Pros: Frenetic and fun multiplayer modes, Expanded multiplayer class system, Co-op oriented fireteam mechanic
Cons: Brief, underwhelming single-player campaign, CGI cutscenes that look worse than the game’s visual engine, Cliched plot that does nothing new
