Medal of Honor: Airborne is certainly an improvement on what many perceived as a dying brand. It’s not up there yet with the likes of the impending Call of Duty 4, but with a little more innovation and improvements to the online side we can certainly see a return to grace for the once mighty series.
I wish they made more shooters this well. Great gun-play, cool maps, and great graphics. EA is stupid for canceling the sequel and opting to make a crappy modern day reboots (Medal of Honor and Medal of Honor: Warfighter i'm looking at you two.)
Overall, I have mixed feelings about Medal of Honor Airborne. At times the game was fun, but other times there wasn’t too much to hold my attention. The weapons upgrades were nice, but the difficulty of aiming the darn things made me frustrated.
Brilliant war game. One of the best WW2 games out there - puts Call Of Duty to shame, but COD wins because of clever mass marketing. Some of the graphics are the best of their time, and the gameplay is really realistic and intense at times. Glad I tried this one.
Positives of this game are I'd say the tight gunplay, the fairly open levels, the interesting airdrop mechanic (even if it's just really a tiny part of the game) and - though its an even smaller thing - the partial regenerating/permanent health system.
My main complaint is it's pathetically short campaign which would make the average campaign of today's EAs games look decent in comparison. I never played it's online but I'm assuming its a steaming pile of horse manure. All in all though it's an above average WW2 shooter with enough little interesting bits for it to be worth playing.
This may not be the best WWII game or the best Medal of Honor, but it's still a pretty good shooter, while the action doesn't get pumping until the last two missions, it's still pretty interesting, and does things that other shooters don't which make it truly unique, sadly multiplayer is only played by a few people which hurts it, if you like WWII shooters and want something different than Call of Duty, or are just a fan of the series, you may want to check this out.
I've played European assault and airborne from the moh series, planning to play 2010, warfighter, Frontline and rising sun
overall this game was a horrible experience for me
1- freedom in the path you choose to complete the objectives
2- graphics which is pretty good for a 2007 game
3- level design
4- weapon upgrades
5- regenerating health bar
6- introducing checkpoints
1- for a FPS shooting game you must have good shooting Mechanics, it's certainly not the case 2- bad hit detection like many times i shoot an enemy but the bullet goes like it's just air
3- the physics are just horrible
you might see a lot of positives against negatives, but for a fps shooter you must have good shooting Mechanics as i said, otherwise the game will be unplayable, it was unplayable for me for a long long time, every time i try to change my mind and play the game again, it gets even worse, it's a bad sign for me when a game force's me to look for mods to make it playable
