  1. The system of ducking behind cover and maneuvering to shoot above or around it works perfectly, delivering non-stop action and excitement.

    The most enjoyable FPS narrative based WWII shooter I've played in years, and I loved Call of Duty.

    Medal of Honor: Airborne brings some very nice ideas to an already dead genre. Without the embarrassing enemies and the harsh difficulty level this could be the best MoH game to date. [Sept 2007]
  4. 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.
  5. The lack of narrative finesse and the toning down of the scripted events was a good call. It’s not quite the open world shooter that was promised, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction.
  6. Medal of Honor: Airborne is a game that needs time ploughed into it to reap the fill awards. If you’re looking for something that will reinvigorate your experience of WWII FPS’ then look elsewhere. But if you are looking for an excuse to take the same old fight back to the Nazis’ then here is your answer.
  7. The game certainly has its moments and is by no means a lost cause, but in the end the game is only strongly recommended for World War II shooter completists and long standing fans of the Medal of Honor series.

    I found this game to be refreshing compared to the last MoH title I tried out (Pacific).

Enemies took cover, used suppresing fire and out manuevered me. I spent some time just watching the allies and axis clash through the binoculars. Its amazing to see AI acting so lifelike. Now, there are problems (Hence the 9 rather then 10). There are a few bugs in the MP system and the first few levels of the game are a joke. The system where you redrop instead of having to load a new game is interesting and allows for the "special" drops, but doesn't really help with realism. The medal system for firearms is fun, trying to get each gun up to the top is not too challenging, but being stupid enough to charge a pillbox with a pistol provides for some crazy moments. I wish they added more weapon customization and did more to make a story out of the game. I felt no connection to my squad mates like I did in CoD. One of the most interesting parts of this game was aiming down the sights. The gun bucks and moves like it would in real-life, but more importantly there are a few more options for taking cover. You can't move, but you can duck, stand, and bend either direction without having a seperate set of keys. EA, put out more titles like this, please. Expand

    Jumpstart of the MoH franchise shows promise with improved AI and an open environment, but ultimately falls short with installation issues Jumpstart of the MoH franchise shows promise with improved AI and an open environment, but ultimately falls short with installation issues and a disappointing multiplayer that is DOA at release.

    I hate giving games a low score but I think that this game is fundamentally flawed. There are some great things about this game. The duck and I hate giving games a low score but I think that this game is fundamentally flawed. There are some great things about this game. The duck and shooting. The recovering health after you get shot. When you shoot the enemy they figure out where you are at in the battle. The Italian mission which I think is the most fun mission of the entire game. That said here are some things that bother me. The game is kinda glitchy. You can tell the EA released the game in a rush. There are pieces of the map that look like a clipping problem. Anyone familiar with the days of Doom will know what I mean. Enemy soldiers don't act like a intelligent group. Although fun it gets kinda old to blow off someones head and then have man after man replace the last one. You have scattered body piles around the battlefield and I'm no history buff but I doubt that Germans fell in piles on the WWII battlefield. Next the sniper rifle is maddening. If there is a fence in the way the bullet hole will appear floating in space on the fence. in front of the German! I sometimes have to fire many times to kill a enemy soldier even though it looks like I have a clear head shot! Lastly the most frustrating part of the whole game is the save system. I know that EA probably did this so that it would be more realistic. But If I wanted realism I would play Call of Duty and get my head blown off. How do they justify saving in the middle of the mission as unrealistic while you are picking up medikits and ammo pack conveniently situated thru each level!? This checkpoint save system sucks. It really does. First you have to trigger a specific checkpoint to save to that level. If you get an early checkpoint no dice. You get to parachute in again. yah. The level I played today I made it through 80% of the level and was killed. I restarted at the point I was at and then in the latter half i was shot dead by a German Sniper. Where do I start? Again the stupid parachute! After I had 2-3 upgrades on my guns! So I nearly finish the level and I have to do it all again. This one flaw takes so much fun and excitement away from the game. You can be duking in out in an intense firefight and boom you die and jump out of an airplane again! I don't even play after that I quit the game and exit. This is the one flaw that will stop people from ever wanting to finish out the game to 100%. I know after I win I will take the game and onto the shelf it will go.. EA needs to insist on a large level of play testing with these MOH games. Expand
