Medal of Honor: Airborne (PC) ... concept of first person shoot Šem-ups set during World War II, but as the years have gone by, the Medal of Honor series has found itself besieged by more and more copycats trying to offer ever more realistic simulations of the era. This is the first Medal of Honor game made specifically for the next generation of consoles though and finds you taking the roles of both pathfinder Eddie La Point and Private Boy Travers - paratroopers in the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division. As such, youĂll end up with a whistle stop tour of enemy hotspots in Sicily, France, Holland and Germany. The game takes its paratrooper motif serious too as the game levels are big enough that you actually have some control over where exactly you land and as a consequence what tactics you choose to employ. The game also tries to give you as much freedom as possible with the weapons you use, with each being customisable with authentic parts which you can find during missions. Even the missions are as open ended as possible, as youĂre given up to a dozen objectives, of which only a few have to be tackled in any sort of order. One side benefit this creates is that the developers have been forced to drastically improve the enemy artificial intelligence so that they can react intelligently to your attacks, instead of just relying on the pre-scripted movements of the earlier games. ThereĂs also a stronger tactical element than ever before as you monitor the back and forth of battle between all the forces on the map. As over-familiar as WWII shooters have become, there looks to be enough new ideas here to keep even the most jaded virtual soldier happy.

I love the Medal of Honour series. For better (Allied Assault), or for worse (Pacific Assault), it is always very cinematic and engaging, and although the series hasn't been hot for a while, I'll always buy the games because they deliver an experience like no other. It is in many ways an apotheosis of the MoH series, because it is indicative of both the strengths and flaws of the series as a whole. Firstly, the plot is a bit of a mess, but then this isn't really why many play the MoH series; there are some individual stories from various soldiers that don't really cohere, but as a glimpse at WW2, it does absolutely deliver as the cinematic spectacle, thanks ...

Let me first start off by saying that I have never been into the WWI/II gaming area of FPS but I have to hand to EA they have introduced me very well into this genre that is both entertaining and (if the facts are true) quite educating also. First off though we'll talk graphics and I think personally they are better than that of COD4 or even, dare I say it, on par with GTA4. I have to hand to EA, they've done a superb job with both the engine and gaming experience. There are a few buggy things (as always) like dead soldiers arms growing really long and somehow sticking to walls, very odd. All that aside though, EA have come up trumps with this game giving ...

I bought this game for my computer last week and I love it. Keeping with the tradition of Medal Of Honor this game is set around World War 2. This game comes with a large assortment of weapons that are all upgradable, but you have to prove yourself in combat to get the modifications. You have full control of your body from the second you jump out of the plane. You can steer your parachute and shoot your gun in the air! The envirement is fully interactive; you can hide anywhere, flank your opponents or climb up somewhere high to get some sniper kills in. And just like most PC WW2 games you can play multiplayer online as well. Graphics The graphics are ... Read the complete review

Medal of Honour Airbourne in a word is "Disapointing".The graphics are ok but you constantly get stuck on invisable objects. The online game is slow, very jerky and hard to focus on anything when running. The weapons are not very accurate. You can't invite frends to your game and the stats are confusing. Stick with Call of Duty 4 Moderm Warfare.

Medal of Honor: Airborne is the 11th game in the series, and this time you take the role of Private Boyd Travers, a member of the 82nd Airborne division in World War 2 (WW2). On top of the 11 MOH games, there have been numerous other games along these lines. In such a packed, and possibly tired marketplace, what is there to set Airborne above the rest? Aside from an improvement in the graphics and sound, which you would expect, the biggest change is the addition of the ability to parachute, which is brilliant! Every mission starts with you in a transport plane, with the rest of your squad, waiting to get over your drop zone. This little ... Read the complete review
