Conclusion: The DNA Lab area is meant to be haven for using collectibles like cash. While some of the DNA items are sweet (like player-character weapon upgrades and mini-games), a lot of what’s here is useless filler that even fans of the movie won’t care much about. A movie screenshot or audio commentary in a game from the HD era is pretty meaningless really; even to those kids that already have the MvA lunchbox.
Excerpt: If you want to get all of your characters' upgrades (and/or look at the concept art, 3-D character models, etc. you also can purchase), you'll be following up a number of stages with mini-stages covering the EXACT SAME ground you just crossed. Holy repetition, Batman!
Summary: Parents need to know that this first-person shooter game, the third in a popular series, aims to re-create battles during WWII. You can expect the character you play to shoot enemies in the head or throw grenades into a room full of Nazis, among other violent acts. But as a game that re-creates history, the violence feels less gratuitous.
Excerpt: Skydiving has always held a certain interest in me. There's just something exhilarating about jumping out of a plane, with nothing to hold onto except your parachute, as you plummet toward the earth below. So you can imagine my excitement when I came across this title. A WWII shooter with something that stood out: you’re part of the US 82nd Airborne, a paratrooper.
Pros: Open-ended levels, weapon upgrades, easy to use cover system
Cons: Average graphics and sound quality, multiplayer is dead, very short campaign
Excerpt: Medal of Honor: Airborne drops you into some of the biggest campaigns of World War II, literally. As a paratrooper, you begin each level in a C-47 bounced around by flak and must parachute your way down to the action. You're free to guide your chute down to anywhere on the battlefield, but if you want to survive for very long after you touch down you should aim for the safe zones marked by green smoke grenades.
Conclusion: The only two that will take awhile are the two multiplayer ones for 500 and a 1000 kills. They are not hard to get, but time consuming just because there is only 10 to 18 players on ranked matches at a time. You have to play through the game multiple times to get the achievements for causal, normal, and hard.
Excerpt: Does the world need another WWII-based FPS? I suspect many reviews are going to begin by asking that exact question (this one being no exception), but I’m not sure that’s the right question to ask. With just a few notable exceptions, Halflife and the new fantastic Bioshock coming to mind, FPS plotlines are for the most part thinly-veiled justifications for blasting the heck out of just about anything that moves, be they aliens, Vietcong, Nazis, or zombies.
