I would be remise to say that this game is action packed or pulse pounding, but those clichés are best left to people who are part time casual gamers. Medal of Honor: Warfighter is an FPS whose storyline aims at bringing a sense of humanity to those men who do the dirty work of protecting our country’s interests, both at home and abroad.
The game’s graphic content lends to what many a “lite” gamer would call awesome, but to those of us in the know, it’s par for the course. Yet it’s graphics, powered by the Frostbite 2 engine, make this game very enjoyable….to look at. The gameplay is everything you’d come to expect from EA and it’s current re-vamping of the MOH series. Strong storylines ripped from the headlines, a cache of weapons that are geared towards the realistic rather than the KIRF’s (Keeping it Real Fake, for those of you that aren’t up to snuff on the slang) you’d find in the bevy of games, and more facial hair than you’d find on a teenager trying to impress a college girl. Folks, this is plain and simple….find the guy, who knows the guy, that’ll help get the guy who wants to do something very, very bad to us. It’s essentially the same formula you’d find in every COD/MOH/Battlefield game we’ve enjoyed since the dawn of dirt.
I can recommend this game to people who are much more into the realistic multiplayer gaming, than the rather small field of play like on COD. To me, Battlefield does make the large scale/open world feel of online game play that much more enjoyable. The online play for MOH: Wf well….has a mixed feel to me. Sort of a combination (or at least they seem to make an effort at combining) of both multiplayer experiences that are available on the previously mentioned games. From small skirmishes, to large ones, TDM’s and CTF’s, MOH: Wf feeds everyone’s need to kill virtual people, just like every other FPS based on real world aspects. I cannot say the same for games like Halo, Mass Effect, or other fantasy/sci fi FPS’s. I say that because I know many a people who feel more comfortable playing FPS’s of other world nature, rather than dawdling on games like this one, and I can’t be mad at them either.
Truth of the matter – Medal of Honor: Warfighter continues the fight, albeit a corporate one rather than an actual one, by laying on a lot of what we have already experienced countless times before. Will it stop anyone from following through on the plethora of war games that exist or are forthcoming? Hell no! The game is fun, but gets tired. Replay value is low, but not drastically. Certain missions are cool enough to make you want to go again, but that’s if you even want to do the single player campaign. Chances are that disc will be tossed to the side in favor of the second disk included that’s solely for online multiplayer gameplay. And that right there is what people will spend their hard earned bucks for. RENT is the rating I can offer on this title, and continue renting titles like this. Cause chances are, you’ll know how exciting it’ll feel to shoot your enemy in the face on this game, and the next, and the next, and the next……
