Amazon.co.uk Review

It may be the game that popularised the whole concept of first person shoot ‘em-ups set during World War II, but as the years have gone by, the Medal of Honor series has found itself besieged by more and more copycats trying to offer ever more realistic simulations of the era. This is the first Medal of Honor game made specifically for the next generation of consoles though and finds you taking the roles of both pathfinder Eddie La Point and Private Boy Travers - paratroopers in the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division. As such, you’ll end up with a whistle stop tour of enemy hotspots in Sicily, France, Holland and Germany. The game takes its paratrooper motif serious too as the game levels are big enough that you actually have some control over where exactly you land and as a consequence what tactics you choose to employ.

The game also tries to give you as much freedom as possible with the weapons you use, with each being customisable with authentic parts which you can find during missions. Even the missions are as open ended as possible, as you’re given up to a dozen objectives, of which only a few have to be tackled in any sort of order. One side benefit this creates is that the developers have been forced to drastically improve the enemy artificial intelligence so that they can react intelligently to your attacks, instead of just relying on the pre-scripted movements of the earlier games. There’s also a stronger tactical element than ever before as you monitor the back and forth of battle between all the forces on the map. As over-familiar as WWII shooters have become, there looks to be enough new ideas here to keep even the most jaded virtual soldier happy.

Product Description

Medal of Honor: Airborne retains the Medal of Honor series' historical accuracy and authenticity, but redefines Medal of Honor by introducing players to an entirely new way of experiencing a WWII FPS - notably the fully interactive Airborne experience. Medal of Honor: Airborne sees players step into the boots of Boyd Travers, Private First Class of the 82nd Airborne Division and engage in battles throughout Europe. From Airborne's rocky beginnings in Sicily to war-winning triumphs in Germany, each mission in this latest Medal of Honor begins behind enemy lines, with a fully interactive airdrop. View the entire operation from the air, and then control your parachute to choose your landing spot. On the ground, gather your senses and assess the terrain and earn those war medals! A wide variety of authentic, customisable weapons are at your disposal, each with distinct characteristics. Choose your path in Airborne's free roaming FPS environment. Medal of Honor: Airborne continues to ensure that the ideals and integrity of the prestigious congressional Medal of Honor are accurately reflected in the Medal of Honor game series. The producers sought counsel from expert sources to make certain Airborne is historically accurate and as true to the WWII Airborne experience as possible. Serving as a military spokesperson for Medal of Honor Airborne, Capt. Dale Dye, who has worked as the Military Technical Advisor for the last 7 Medal of Honor games, has helped create a truly authentic Airborne experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great 23 Sep 2007
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this game based upon the amazing reviews; you can jump anywhere on the battlefield, the enemy is far more intelligent than in other games, and the graphics are great. All of these are true, only that although you might not think it, this all leads to invariable repetition. First off, you can jump anywhere; thats all fine and dandy, but really your only choice is to jump into safe areas marked by green smoke, or else your cut to pieces by enemy fire. The AI is great, but is really only as intelligent as the soldiers you find in COD3 and 2, the exception being the elite troops. However, i do find it highly unlikely that (this is in the last two levels in the game) the Wehrmacht would emply slow moving troops encased in heavy armour wielding massive machine guns. The graphics are sublime, far better than any other war game i have seen so far, but i and i think many others cannot judge a game solely on that. Lastly, although the aspects i have mentioned do drag the game down a little, this isnt an unenjoyable expierience. What is annoying is that the game only has five levels, rather like COD3, which has a little more. What about other battles that the airbourne took part in, other than D-Day, Nijmegen, Sicily and the Ruhr (two levels)?If you seem so intent on creating boss soldiers that never existed, why not battles that never took place?
All in all, this is a good game, but is dragged down by stupid ideas and lack of scope. I am not saying stay away from it, but keep in mind that at most you will get two days play out of it and then get rapidly bored.

3.0 out of 5 stars Delusions of adequacy 21 Sep 2007
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I try to be honest and forgiving in reviews. I'll be struggling with this one.

The first mission was great. Great fun, multiple simultaneous objectives and not linear. Second one ok, third one ok. Went a bit downhill after that.

Graphics - I actually like the graphics but I know some have complained about them, but they look pretty good to me. Not as good as COD3, but still pretty good. The sprint effect was a nice touch.

Sound - was chaotic as you'd expect in a battle, headshot sound is a nice feature. But that flaming annoying music is SO LOUD it's ridiculous. And it's cheesy. How annoying is it to hear that same baah-baba-baah-ba-baaahh trumpet fanfare in the music every time there's an 'exciting' bit? My advice is to turn that off ASAP.

Land wherever you want in the map - Not really true. If you start moving towards a good area some kind of invisible fart blows you off course, you don't land where you want and you end up with a botched landing and probably a beaten skull. There's a 'greased landing' where you can be ready for action the moment you land, but in the last couple of maps there's almost no way of using it.

Enemy - endless. What's the point in picking them off from a distance? None. Kill a couple and run to some cover further on and hopefully they'll stop coming. By the end it just got silly. Plain silly, and at that point the game lost all hope. MG42-toting super-soldiers running around and it takes 2 panzerschreck hits to their head just to kill them, and when you kill them you can't even pick up their weapon! Not believable. Plus if you shoot at an enemy who has a panzerschreck he can suddenly and miraculously fire 2 or 3 panzerschreck rounds a second! They fire 3 in the time it took me to fire one and reload.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but lacks in Multi Player 17 Sep 2007
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a single player game it is game, graphics wise and sound etc is brilliant as you would expect. But it is very very short - only 6 missions.

It is the multiplayer that lets it down. It does not rival COD3 in this respect. Ok one side can parachute in etc but the maps are very small. Max 12 players on a map. There is only team battle, a sort of similar thing to the "war" mode on COD3 and that's it. No capture the flag, no all against all or anything like that.
This really lets down the title in my opinion, infact I've had it less than a week and I'm bored of it and am back to playing COD3 on multiplayer.
Buy this only if you are really really really keen on the novelty factor of being able to parachute. That's it!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars First half great, 2nd half badly implemented 16 Sep 2007
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a mixed bag, this time around it's got closer to call of duty in that you actually fight with other soldiers around you rather than taking on an army in a linear way on your lonesome.

The fact that you parachute in, and the less linear maps give the game more variety, and adds replay value to a slight degree. Upon playing it, the missions in the first half of the game are ok, but once you play the last 3 missions it becomes completely lopsided, you'll find that shooting soldiers in the leg with a sniper rifle doesn't affect them at all, they will quite happily run away as the able bodied superbeings they are, and it takes more and more bullets to kill a soldier, to a ridiculous degree, also you'll feel like a fish in a barrel by level 4, in a vast map with snipers that you can' see, literally everywhere, you'll wonder what's happened.
It seems the game ends up being some sort of Arcade cliche rather than a sensible WW2 game, it gears itself up to just getting harder and harder in a non realistic way and ending with a silly boss level, this really lets down what initially looked really promising.
