A Poor Attempt!,
This review is from: Medal of Honor: Airborne (PS3) (Video Game)
If we were being honest Medal of honor games on the Playstation (1/2/3) have been getting worse since the release of the WW2 FPS great that was MOH Frontline. That was a great game and for me defined the MOH franchise. People conplained about the linearity of the levels but i think thats what made them good. I prefered the more lone gunman approach. More recently, EA brought the series more towards squad-based, more open style levels and missions. I was hopeful that MOH Airborne's release on the PS3 might be a return to form and rekindle what made the orginal MOH, MOH underground and MOH frontline so good. Sadly, No....
-Firstly the single player game is very short. There are only 7 missions. COnsisting of airborne drops Italy, France, Holland and finally Germany itself.
-Graphics are quite poor. Both in terms of texture and lighting. Amazingly Call of Duty 3, which was released some time ago now has considerably better graphics.
-Enemy AI is shockingly bad!..an enemy (and i don't remember ever hearing of the italian's or germans ever doing this) will often run pass your line and take cover behind you or just stand out in the open and start shooting....i mean come on this is a PS3 game for......
- At this point i'll try and say something positive. The sound is quite good. The gun shounds in particular sound much improved and realistic.
Overall thought and as a fan of the series and a big first person shooter fan, this game just doesn't do it. With all these negative aspect, I found myself no longer enjoying the game.
Call of Duty 3 was alot better and i would recommend that or if you just want a great FPS then Call of Duty 4. MOH Airborne though, STAY AWAY.
The parachute has failed!
