The first 10 minutes: Medal of Honor Airborne

The first 10 minutes: Medal of Honor Airborne

Medal of Honor: Airborne is the first game of the series designed for next-gen consoles, and seems to have had quite a difficult birth with a switch to Unreal Engine 3 right in the middle of the development. But it's still a quite good FPS, with lots of good ideas like the ability to land anywhere in the level and an excellent cover system I hope other games of the genre will try to emulate. The "usual" UE3 graphics bugs, textute and models pop-in especially, are all there but it still looks rather good too. Fans of the genre shouldn't miss this game, the others if they are not tired of killing germans and italians by the dozen should also take a good look.

My money only goes to CoD4 next month.. And I already bought the Orange Box from Valve, and Company of Heroes Opposing Fronts recently.. So I'm affraid I'll skip this game.. There's only so much I'm willing to spend on games, and only so much time I can play them..

Maybe I'll buy the new Brothers in Arms game when that comes out as my next WWII game.. Not sure yet though.. With TF2, CoD4, and UT3 I already have plenty of new FPS (MP) games to keep me busy..

I wonder if anyone is really anticipating this game? Maybe some PS3 user who's dieing for some games but I can't imagine an Xbox 360 owner waiting for this.
There are just too many great games out there, or coming in the next two months.

Yeah, just my thoughts. This title is no real opponent for CoD4!!
There are some good ideas... but finally, the whole game is, just okay....

I don't see anyone but die-hard fans looking forward to this. The upcoming titles for PS3/360 with multiplats alone over the next 2 months shadow this title.

this game is definitely a rental. i beat it in 2 sittings.

it's also a frustrating game w/infinite enemies that will just respawn over and over. it's just a bug ridden game, but it was pretty fun to play through once. it gets insanely hard too.

I don't think there's as much freedom in this game as they would have us believe. First of all, the maps don't seem all that huge, so big woop if I can land anywhere. Secondly the level detail is lacking which essentially makes the map even smaller. boo i say.. boo

About the game

  • Tinks
    Tinks I didn't understand why he played so poorly either though. Subasic has been amazing the rest of the tourney. A big reason they won against Denmark and Russia (13 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks @MrWhite: I agree. Penalty like that shouldn't happen in a WC final. Croatia's keeper was screened for almost all of those goals, aside from the deflection (13 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Melmoth: oh god, that is amazing. the sounds and visuals are insane for a sim. (13 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (13 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (15 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (15 Hours ago)

    droezelke Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (15 Hours ago)
