I know this game gets a lot of flac from some people, but I really enjoyed it. It has a few glitches, but all in all I think it's a great game, and it has a pretty long campaign to boot

Medal of Honor used to be an amazing war game, i played countless hours of vanguard and European Assault as a kid on the ps2. Medal of Honor: Airborne is the last great game in the series. Being dropped into the battle with free will to explore and edit your own load out is an awesome feature. One of my favourite things is the cover/peak system. when aiming down sight you can move your mouse to peak around corners/over obstacles, its a great feature. This game has ages greatly, it still has decent graphics for a game made in 2007. The only bad this is the campaign length and population of multiplayer servers, but mods for A.I bots in multiplayer games are available to download. Overall if you want a strong WW2 shooter that is not Red Orchestra 2 buy this, But don't bother with the seise from this game on....

Step two: Get either Iron Maiden or ACDC discography
Step three: Play your music
Step four: Launch game
Step five: Become badass
Step six: Post screencaps of funny bugs

And that's how to enjoy this game, I really recommend if you're really bored and just want a silly FPS to play.

Probably the best MOH game. After that, MOH games became something like a joke. The game is highly replayable, especially if you are like me, meaning that you want to upgrade all the guns and get 5 stars in every difficulty. I didn't use the multiplayer and I don't intend to, but the campaign is really awesome. This game is highly recommended. And remember guys, don't let the tanks crush you.

Please bear in mind that this review will be about the singleplayer, and the singleplayer only. I haven't played the multi, and does not plan to do so. Why? I'm an SP man, that's why. So, let's begin.

If you've played the original MoH series, it could get really different. Instead of a more realistic game, you get Band of Brothers: The Shooter. And I love every single minute of it. You get six rather short missions that you can complete in about 5 hours (or in my case, 7, because I'm a terrible aim), and each mission lets you refight one airborne operation of the war. The first two takes place in Italy, and it quickly grabs your attention if you let it do so. Fast paced action with loud guns, and more enemies that you can count. The more you kill, the better your weapons will be. For every kill, your weapon gets experience, and when it "levels up", you get an upgrade for it. Like grenade launcher for the M1 Garand, better scope for the Springfield, dual mag for the Stg44, and so forth. Maybe not entirely accurate, but certainly gives you a feel of progression.

Try to stick with a weapon if you like it, tho. Some weapons appear only in early game (like the Kar98k and the Mp40), sor maybe it's wiser to use something that will be present a bit more frequent to let you get ammo for it. I recommend the pistol, because it doesn't require you to get additional ammo for it - you have infinite bullets. And that's cool, because on lvl 3, it's a really powerful weapon in short to middle range firefights. But the rest repends on your gamestyle. You can level up grenades too. Spam Gammon grenades for supernazis, and you can bear quite an amount of them to help you get baddies out fo the way.

The cons? Well, they are present. It's not much a historical game, rather than a historical based shooter. The Kar98k was used throughoutly the war, as well as the Mp40 - and believe it or not, not every men had an Stg44, and there wasn't any (or rather - that much) super nazis who could shoot the 15kg (possibly more) MG42 from the hip. And it's a bit frustrating when you go back to a place after they shot you, and it's swarming with enemies. Oh, before I forget - spawning. If you die, you'll make another jump where you can choose where to deploy. Rather neat function, that contains some interesting elements as there are skill jumps on each level, like land on the balcony or the catwalk.

Overall, a good game. Really short, so I'd recommend getting it on a sale or if you are really don't have much else to spend you hard earned money on. If you want a bit more realistic FPS that have the Airborne in it, try Brothers in Arms - especially Hell's Highway, but it's just my personal preference.

This game singleplayer last top 3 hours if you're decent at shooters. It feels rushed, the writing is bad and the characters are "meh" at best. Not a single soldier is memorable nor does them leave an impact, you don't even know if you're in the mission with the same guys as before. I guess it looks good and the shooting is kind of fun.

The Good: Decent graphics, different level design approach, fast paced, it doesn't last very long

The Bad: Botched paratrooping mechanic, ridiculously difficult, monotonous level progression, dead multiplayer, brings nothing new to the tired genre

Medal of Honor started the first person shooter World War II experience back on the original PlayStation. As time went on they redefined the genre on PC with Allied Assault. It helped put WWII shooter's feet on cinematic ground. Frontline was the series last good game, and slowly after that the series fell flat on its face with mediocrity, with EA only caring about money. Airborne continues this trend and it's dead obvious how little effort they put into the game.

You play as a soldier named Travers (like we care at this point) and you go through various WWII scenarios that you have probably gone through dozens of times before. The first thing you will notice about Airborne is how repetitive it feels in comparison to other WWII shooters. It doesn't do anything new and re-treads the same ground that we are sick and tired of. EA tried to make us feel different about this with a new approach to level design. You play as paratroopers that jump out of planes at the start of every level onto green flares. These are safe zones and contain crates of health, ammo, and grenades. Once you hit the ground you will notice that your mini-map is pointing to various objectives. No longer do you follow a linear routine and take it one at a time. Pick a direction and run, but that's when things start going bad.

Every map plays out the same, shoot some enemies, push forward, rinse and repeat ad nauseam. The enemies will keep coming in different pockets of the maps until you advance and take them out. This isn't a new trick, and just gets old quick because that is all you do. Place a charge on this AA gun, blow up this equipment, blow up these thanks. No thanks. I have done this countless times already so why do I want to do it here? The whole "non-linear" map idea doesn't really work because it makes the game ridiculously difficult and you will die dozens of times every level. Every time you die you jump back out of the plane loosing not objective progress, but advancement progress. If you just pushed back a huge group of enemies and die you have to do it again. Your objectives are just checkpoints, and this gets frustrating beyond anything you can imagine. The game throws way too many enemies at you, but there are even problems with weapons.

The game has a nice upgrade system for doing so many kills. For example, the MP40 will upgrade with a double clip, reduced recoil, and a knife melee attack. This is the most interesting thing in the entire game, but EA for some reason made the guns inaccurate to accommodate for upgrades. Guns jump around more than you are used to and no matter how well your aim is you always miss about 60% of the time. Once you hit the less recoil upgrade it isn't so bad. All the same WWII era weapons are here (except the Sten) and it is yawn worthy.

Thankfully the game is short with only 6 levels, so you can beat the game in about 6 hours. No matter how you slice it the game is just extremely hard, repetitive, boring, and unoriginal on every level. They even went back to the health pack system which is just archaic in design. You would think at least jumping out of planes is fun? Not really because if you don't grease or flare your landing you botch it and it involves a nauseating and disorienting animation of your character wobbling around while getting up and pulling the weapon out in a weird way. While this is happening guys are shooting you and you will recover with one health bar left. Nice job EA for screwing every single thing in a game up that you possibly could. Even the graphics are pretty bland and aren't anything special.

Overall, Airborne is probably the worst Medal of Honor game I have ever played. Monotonous shooting, ridiculous difficulty, screwed up paratrooping mechanic, failed level design, and a retread of a genre everyone is tired of. Do yourself a favor and skip this unless you really need a WWII shooter fix. Forget about multiplayer as well because there are only 6 maps and no one is playing online anyways.

One of the best MoH game for the last generation.
Surprisingly the game aged pretty well, it still looks very good thanks to the Unreal 3 engine.
I really loved the Physx effects, particularly the ragdolls, still one of the best I've seen in any of the FPS I've played.
Soundtracks are great and the sound effect is really realistic too.

Few things I did not like though. The screen flashes really bright when taking enemy fires.
Also, despite the good visuals I also find it very taxing to the eyes.
The controls are not as tight as any of the previous MoH games. Aiming down sight can be quite tricky at times, particularly when using a sniper rifle.
Multiplayer is non existant nowadays, but the short single player campaign offers enough replayablility.

May not be the game for everyone, so best to get it when there's a steam sale! :)

Online is terrible, so there's virtually no replayability.

However, once I found a way to edit the game config to change the force of grenade explosions and melee attacks, I had a lot of fun.

There's a couple of funky ♥♥♥ glitches here and there, but nothing to break the game, and you'll have to mess with the PhysX, but other than that, I have no complaints.

It's a fun and fairly challenging game, and it's nothing new. Once you're on the ground, it becomes any other WWII game.

So I say sure. Get it, have fun with it. Put in a few hours until you get bored of it, then go do something else.
