Medal Of Honor: Warfighter - when realism goes too far

EDGE - Licensed real-world weapons, branded tomahawks, a web-based war; if this is authenticity, you can keep it, writes Nathan Brown. (Medal of Honor: Warfighter, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Realism going too far? Are you serious? Look at Arma! Don't even start complaining about WarFighter, having Danger Close change the name of the Taliban to Opposing Force in the original because Gold Star Mom couldn't handle it was far enough.

Call of Duty has official licensed real life logo stamped on the real life attachemnts for real life weaponary, wheres that article? Sounds like these people just hate war in general, and for what ever reason everyone likes to pick on EA when they do nothing wrong, and Medal of Honor just has realistic looking graphics, gameplay is arcade type like Call of Duty, but dont people complain about Arma, or Operation Flashpoint, and God knows what these people would think of the new game Ground Branch http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Stop looking to find any reason to write a negative article about gaming, especially popular console shooters that get no where really close to real life weapon tatics and techniques.

Also to add, no one looks at it as "which country is best at killing people" its more about the nature of competition, who can work as a better team, same concept as Fifa, its more of a sport being that its just a game, would you complain if there was PaintBalling or Airsoft in the Olympics?

To end on a positive note, I'm very excited for this game, can't wait to play it, EA seems to understand polish to even the smallest detail can make a game that much better even if you dont realize of notice the small details. :)

Is this article a joke? Like, really?

MoH: Warfighter is too realistic??? Hmm.

LOL this is pretty obvious. Weapons and military gear are all trademarked thus you need the company's permission to use their likeness in the game. No surprise they want to partner up as one of the conditions for portraying their products.

Driving games have licensed cars, can't military games have licensed guns and equipment? This article is a complete joke, the author is such a baby.

I was pretty disappointed when EA decided to change Taliban to whatever the hell it was in the first game. Hopefully they don't change a thing in this one.

The opposing force lol , not like we didn't know who they were anyway's.

So it's okay to shoot somebody in the face in a game only if the weapon doesn't exists in real life? The action is the same. Soon the internet will be full with articles like "boycott medal of honor!!!"

The games so realistic that people could go pick up a gun and use it after training here! Its so realistic, it shows how a gun recoils, how heavy they are, and is perfect for training so they tagged the trademark on it! /sarcasm.....

EA says, means that "no other gaming brand brings authenticity to life like Medal Of Honor"

lol EA you are so clueless to the gaming market and MOH is not going to be realistic in any sense at all.

arma says hi.

So, because you can buy the guns in real life, this is wrong? it's not as if anyone remotely interested in firearms wasn't going to look up their favorite gun in a game anyway.
