  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 played it over and over again so much that I finally sold it thinking that I would never play it again, and about a year later I couldn't help myself I saw it and bought it again and I NEVER do that....that's how good this game is. It is really fun being able to land wherever you want on the map and do objectives in whatever order you want to do them. I thought that was cool, but what gets lost in the uniqueness of this game is how great the gameplay is. The crouching behind cover and leaning out to shoot or snipe is done better than any game I can think of, this is the only game that gets it right. It does not have very many missions but you can play them all so differently each time that the replay value is awesome, and your weapon upgrades come with how much you use that weapon, it doesn't automatically upgrade all you weapons for beating a mission, if you are good with the pistol it will upgrade itself the more kills you get with it, and its that way for all the weapons. Also, there are some difficult parts and it can be a challenge, so I give this awesome game a 10, I just wish Medal of Honor would do another one instead of pumping out lesser games like warfighter and stuff.....

    I'd give this game a 10, but that's reserved for titles like Halo, Half-life 2, Far Cry, etc. But it

    Airborne's combination of choppy port quality, cheap enemy design and questionable control severely roughens its landing.

The gun assortment is fairly small however they mostly feel different from eachother, but the upgrade system is very weak and feels so dated. The upgrades consist of grips, launchers, extended mags, and scopes. The airdropping is a nice touch, but really being able to land anywhere is such a small part of each mission as you're still going to go to the SAME position each time, it just gives you a chance to choose a starting point really. The AI is alright, however your friendly units are a disaster most of the time, they seem to want to just melee and get in your way. Enemy units seem to be balanced, they will notice you from long distances but they aren't insanely easy or difficult, and the game is overall easy on expert, besides the completely random panzerschrek and MG nest deaths which can be extremely annoying. Story is forgettable, the one thing they did well was the jump scenes in the beginning of each level and the locations, historically it's pretty accurate on its objectives and even the weather. Other than that there is no real story, just the briefings and jumps, it feels pretty bland. In terms of length, the mission count isn't the problem, it's the tediousness, every mission feels the same. The combat is decent, but ruined by clipping problems. I don't know whether the weapons are inaccurate or the hit detection is messed up, but a lot of times you won't hit your target when you're dead on. Nothing special, would get a 6 if it had better combat but as is it gets a 5, I'd recommend you not to buy it Expand
