A wonderful game for every fan that ever was of the Medal Of Honor based games. Along with a very immersive campaign, this game is very rewarding and very tough when you get to its later stages. Along with some nice gunplay and upgrades along the way, the game's soundtrack is flawless and its combat always keeping you on your toes. Along with offering some multiplayer after you've finished the campaign, this game definitely was a great addition to my warchest as it should be yours. Strap in Aiborne, you got one last Medal Of Honor to earn.

Later,

Airborne may look like another generic WWII fps shooter but there is brilliance that you won't understand until you play a mission or two. I can't think of any other game that has the same mechanic, you see the battle in Airborne is open. You can choose to land anywhere or go anywhere in the battlefield. At any moment you have multiple missions to do based on the real events of Airborne battles in WWII leading to a magnificent Flaktower at the end.

It is not perfect.. The aiming is a bit broken, the game is too short and the checkpoint saves sometimes don't work taking you back to the start of the mission everytime you die. But it's still damn fun to play!

This game was my childhood game so its 10/10 for me but if you have never played this game before its probably not that great but i mean you can still try it and see what you think i mean the graphics are not that bad and i just love the ragdoll on the enemies it makes the game even more fun and your teammates can actually help you their not totaly useless like most FPS games LOL and the multiplayer is actually not that bad either but i like the singleplayer more and even if you have it on normal you cant go rushing every mission they can kill really fast. to me this game is amazing and i cant say one bad thing about it but if you have never played the game before...i dont know i mean its only 10 euro its not that much so why not try it

10/10 (My Opinion)

A very interesting mechanic poorly executed.

Being able to jump out of a plane to land anywhere on the field is a neat idea. You can land on a roof and shoot your way down, or land behind the enemy and flank them.

And that’s about where the good ends.

The weapons have a neat level-up mechanic. The more you use a certain weapon, you will earn attachments for it, and make it better. Unfortunately, at the beginning of the game when you don’t have any proficiencies, the weapons are incredibly difficult to use. I remember having a rifle, looking down the sights at an enemy’s chest, and emptying entire magazines without a single hit. The inaccuracy of the weapons in this game can make it very frustrating.

The enemies scale, and get more difficult as you progress. That’s good. The highest level enemies, though, are laughable and unrealistic. Also, after five legitimate missions, the sixth and final mission feels like a giant spoof of the entire game.

Lastly, the game’s big gimmick is parachuting to any place on the battlefield. I never once learned how to land correctly. The instructions were not very clear, and after failing all three times in the tutorial, I was approved and sent off to war. I played every mission, and made countless landings, and botched every single one. I was upset that I couldn’t do it, but even more upset that I couldn’t LEARN to do it.

This game was a novelty when I was looking for something I hadn’t played before, but it’s not something I’ll ever go back to with fond memories.

Funny thing is this 7 year old game is made better than most FPS's today. The lean feature so simple, so useful, so often forgotten. Something about the WWII games are just more fullfilling to me. Upgrading your weapons is easy just kill with it. While it's on sale for 2.49$ the only reason not to get this game if you enjoy fps is that you already have it.

After a long line of disappointing games in the Medal of Honor franchise that just never could recapture the magic successes of Allied Assault, we finally get Medal of Honor: Airborne that combines high presentation values and good, fast-paced fun. While there's definitely some good entertainment value here, the campaign is short, and the multiplayer isn't incredibly deep. Still, it's a good game overall and the best game in the franchise in some time.

Medal of Honor: Airborne takes a different approach to World War II shooters. Instead of starting players out in each linear level on a path where there's no variation, EA LA decided to let us choose where to start each mission by throwing us out of a plane. Once floating in the air, it's a matter of steering the parachute to the best location to start the fight. Where the best location is depends on how you want to play the game, a mechanic that certainly is useful if you want a challenge or find that it's more fun to start out in a certain place on a map. It also provides an opportunity to drop into a new location if the previous one was a little too difficult or even complete one of the five different skill drops (drops in very specific areas).

I don't know if I can take this game seriously or not. The game paints itself as a serious game revolving around paratroopers in WW2. However, the game itself is hilarious if not unintentionally comedic. I only recommend this game as there is no neutral option and I picked it up cheap on a sale.

The game started off well, the First level you fight the Italians. This is pretty cool because in every WW2 game they are always overlooked, but they are only around for half the level then here come the Germans. Using the iron sights allows you to lean or look over cover via the movement keys, which is something not seen a lot in shooters.

The AI in this game is horrible. Your teammates are paper and will run directly into fire. I haven't seen an ally stay alive for longer than 30 seconds. The enemy loves to melee and they will run directly at you just to melee you. When they use cover the animation is so rough it's like they are teleporting from looking over the cover vs peeking around the cover. Sometimes when you shoot a soldier his body will ragdoll as if you shot him with a cannon, they really get some incredible air time. A lot of times the enemy doesn't follow the same rules as the guns you use. Many times the enemy will shoot through cover or in the case of a sniper they will fire it like it's a fully automatic rifle when the rifle is bolt action. Lastly, there is only like, 8 stages.

Well it's Medal of honor! I read about others having issues getting it to work but I have had none. My pc came as is I did not build it like others do and I have never had issus with any steam game! Now to get done to the game....its great but I am writing this as I play the first mission. I can say it's worth the money! As the world war II guy I can say this is how medal of honor should be.It's the last good one and 2007 was the tail end of my game gen. I was not a pc gamer I was a ps2 gamer but now I put my money into steam. It works for me just be aware it might not for you as others say.
