MOH: Airborne breathes life back into the dying WWII franchise 1

It's been quite a while since a decent Medal Of Honor game was released, hasn't it? Sure, people can have their opinions about the different games, but from a technical standpoint, none of the games were really that good. Probably the main problem would have to be that in almost every game you felt as if you were alone, fighting the entire war by yourself. It just doesn't make much sense to me. One man can't fight a war alone, and thankfully, Airborne doesn't follow in the footsteps of the other...

dogsounds reviews: Medal of Honor: Airborne 0

So, it's that time again when EA release another instalment of the long-running Medal Of Honor franchise.Many gamers bemoan the dearth of WWII shooters; they say the genre is milked to exhaustion, and that everyone should just move on. Well, EA obviously don't think so, and I for one am glad. As I have written before, I quite like the genre, and you can guarantee I'll never tire of it. And, despite all the naysayers, people still buy the games. Perhaps what people are tired of is not WWII shoote...

Medal of Honor Airborne: Loses the plot when supernatural enemies 0

Airborne, the latest in the Medal of Honor World War 2 series, takes an attempt to do something new, parachuting into free open levels. This managed to be pulled off well enough to be enjoyable. The game has some shortcomings though, its length, graphics and unrealistic enemies.You play as the mute character Boyd Travers, who is a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne division. At the beginning of each level Travers sits in the briefing room, to get a brief overview of his objectives for his mission....

Yep, It's Medal of Honor 0

I went into this iteration of EA's World War II shooter completely psyched for the new gameplay mechanic of jumping out of airplanes, adding to my normal level of enthusiasm for shooting me some Nazis. It seemed like it could be a fresh take on a really tired out setting. The problem is, it's really not. You'll immediately find that being able to choose your beginning location is usually nothing more than a gimmick, considering more often than not you'll need to start at points where the game "s...

Probably the most innovative MoH game in a while--too bad it doesn't last 0

The idea of entering battles from the sky, especially in games, is relatively new. The 101st Airborne was, to my knowledge, the first group of soldiers to do so in WWII, and now, with MoH: Airborne, we have the opportunity to fight as they did, albeit with much less risk and reality. What follows is a very innovative mechanic that, sadly, doesn't save the game from being a middling experience.Airborne's most touted feature--gimmick, some would say--is the ability to enter a level from the sky, ...

Medal of Honor Airborne (PC) 0

Developed by EA, Medal of Honor Airborne is the 5 game in the series to come to the PC. Despite using the very good Unreal Engine 3 this game has “bad” written all over it, with only a handful of redeeming features. Like most of the other Medal of Honor games you once again take on the role of an American soldier. Fighting alongside your allies from the 82 Airborne you take part in various missions including the invasion of Normandy and Operation Market Garden. The first mission sets a benchmark...

Falls short of great. 0

I'm happy to say that the first Medal of Honor game on the 360 didn't disappoint, however, it didn't really thrill either. In other words, the game was good but not great. The story is obviously based in WWII, but you are in the Airborne Division of the U.S. Army. This is something new to the franchise. Usually in MoH you are in the Marines. This change, however made the game unique and brought something new to a over-saturated franchise. You start each mission jumping (or being pushed) out of ...

Nice game overall - nice graphics and game play. 0

This is the first game that actually wants you to die in order to give you a bonus. This is because the only way to collect all 5 landing bonuses of a level is to jump from the plane 5 times. And to jump 5 times means, that you have to day at least 4 times during a level (this is if you ALREADY know where exactly the landing bonus zones are located). Another option would be to hold a grenade during your initial jump and blow yourself to 5 pieces in the air, hoping that you will have at least one...
