    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]
  2. Medal of Honor: Airborne is an enjoyable shooter, adding enough to the formula to avoid feeling like a retread of territory you've crossed many times before.
  3. Quickly it becomes second nature to scavenge the flanks, and poke your gun into every nook and cranny, looking to surprise your enemy or bypass an overwhelming opposition stronghold.
  4. If you want my advice, keep the idea, change the time line, okay?
  5. So although it may not be worth a purchase, it’s worth playing around with, if only for a while.

    The game can be a little restrictive but the campaign mode is enjoyable and is sure to satisfy World War II FPS fans.
  7. The lack of precision and agility really destroys the pathetic online modes. Deathmatch, team deathmatch, and an “objective” territories-style mode are all sad, as is the twelve-player maximum.

    Fun. Great graphics. I'm airborne myself, and that's as close as it gets to jumping as far as a video game can represent. Yeah, you Fun. Great graphics. I'm airborne myself, and that's as close as it gets to jumping as far as a video game can represent. Yeah, you can't drive your parachute anywhere on the map...but then that is the way it is in real life. I bought this game and HALO 3 atthe same time. Better graphics by far. I play this game far more often. Expand

Gunplay was, and is, unrivaled,Writing this in 2018; MoH: Airborne was probably the best shooter on '360, only Far Cry 3 was maybe better. Gunplay was, and is, unrivaled, esp with the best-in-genre and never surpassed analogue free-lean cover mechanic. Wolfenstein on PS4 thankfully resuscitated this much-loved feature, only you can't go prone; meaning MoH basically feels like Wolfenstein on hard, but controls a little better.

    Did I say hard? Master the controls, and it becomes almost too easy, like any game with great mechanics up to the task. Two things you'll notice about the haters, 1) they never mention or use the freelean-which tells me they're playing on mouse and keyboard [it needs a controller, but with one: and this mechanic alone makes every other shooter feel clunky by comparison, it's also not a coincidence that Wolfenstein is probably the best shooter experience on PS4], and 2) they complain about how hard it is. Basically, like Far Cry V on ultra difficulty and Wolfenstein on normal and above; you're FORCED to use the cover mechanic. And that's the way it should be. This is war man, you're being shot at; if you don't find and leverage cover-you're dead. This mechanic is the essence of the gameplay really, is better than every other cover solution on the market, works 100% of the time-unlike contextual systems and is 100% skill based, meaning master this sonny, 'cause if you die in Airborne; it's your fault. So Gut good.

    Faults? The game's pretty short, but the levels with their open nature; means they have a lot of replay. I certainly played the bezeezus out of this for months. Basically, EA made a choice; they could pad a game out with more content, or they could invest everything into a shorter but higher quality game. So that's what we got. Funni thing to me, are the positive reviews Wolfenstein gets next to this, because basically, if you love Wolfenstein, you might even love this more as the gunplay and movement is just a little tighter and a little better.
    The open nature of the levels, the one in a hilltop town especially: were a precursor of what Far Cry 3 would become, as this is the best level in Airborne, and every Far Cry outpost basically plays like this.
    One of the most criminally underrated games. It also makes me wonder; that there's probably little that's actually substantially wrong with the final two MoH games after this-as they keep the same mechanics.

    The game at one time offered some interesting ideas. However, everything else was done poorly.

    The game is tedious and slow.
