Medal of Honor: Warfighter Review | Destructoid

Jim Sterling writes, "Charmless, cynical, and uninspired, Warfighter encapsulates everything wrong with the annual big budget shooter industry. It's really not an awful game, it's just insipid and shallow, a title that exists solely to exist, and squeeze whatever profit remains to be had from serving the same flavorless porridge to the same unadventurous customers. It will make its money, and keep the FPS factories in business for another year."

Get ready for the onslaught of negative reviews for this game. Not surprising.

Blastoise1976d ago

Maybe because its not a very good game? Eurogamer gave it a 5 too by the way.

Crazyglues1975d ago (Edited 1975d ago )

Ouch! a 5, that makes me nervous since I just bought this, has not arrived yet.. -But I hope it's not that bad.


guitarded771975d ago

I wouldn't worry... just play it and don't think about other's opinions... especially from Destructoid. I've enjoyed several games that got panned by attention whores with a soapbox.

Blacktric1975d ago (Edited 1975d ago )

At least you'll get free wallhack in multiplayer if what the first MP trailer showed is true.

"I've enjoyed several games that got panned by attention whores with a soapbox."

Hurr durr how dare they not like something I do!

SilentNegotiator1975d ago (Edited 1975d ago )


Give Jim's reviews a chance. He's harsh but he gives very strong analysis in his reviews.

Thank Jim for Jim.

Return it asap. Dont open it. Get another game like dishonored or PSABR or whatever the hell type game. Trust me, in just 2-3 months the online lobbies will be empty in moh. Dont screw yourself over, everyone says it's whack! If u got ps plus, u can try a 1 hour trial right now to test it out yourself b4 u decide to open it.

Ju1975d ago (Edited 1975d ago )

"if what the first MP __TRAILER__" ...

interestingly, it looks like most of the opinions here are based of "videos" or "hear say". But most people here on the troll train haven't even touched the game but yet condem it.

I got it, and it is while worth the money. No regrets here.

b163o11975d ago

People hate on any other FPS, if its not COD. It's actually hilarious. I do support(HeyPickUpThatAmmo) Dice, and will get this game, just not now, mainly cause I'm getting plenty of juice out of my BF3 copy(TwoMoreDLC's). XD

Crazyglues1974d ago

Wow game is P.O.S... (piece of sh*&) get it if you want but it's has the worst graphics I have ever seen in a game... this is a POS.. i'm sorry

Game is Garbage, it's a huge mess... too many bad to even bother listing it would take up the whole page, game is pure garbage..

Complete waste of money


Blacktric1974d ago

"interestingly, it looks like most of the opinions here are based of "videos" or "hear say"."

I think one of EA PR guys got drunk and went on a rampage you guys...

Joking aside, I guess it's impossible for anyone to have an actual opinion by watching the promotional material right? Eventhough the promotional material supposed to show how good the actual product is as best as possible. It seems to me that you paid 60 dollars for a horrible game that even EA themselves already partially forgotten about and now in denial to admit that it doesn't even worth half the money you paid. And as a result, coming here to tell people what is good and what is bad. Good for you.

I know its a bit off-topic but in Cinema, Music, Literature and Theatre a 5/10 usually means you'll either hate it or love it, but in the gaming world a 5/10 is garbage, you know what ?I'm gonna give this game a chance it can't be that bad, review scores are almost irrelevant to me these days COD scores 9's and 10's but those games are utter sh!t to me.

Ju1975d ago

It's not a 5. Simple.

Beastforlifenoob1975d ago

Eurogamer also gave it a "5"

ElitaStorm1975d ago

this is 100% peer pressure

i think this game is great but i still miss the WWII games from MOH series

GrahamGolden1975d ago

while all the major sites get their paycheck from activision to give CoD another 9+ and say how the game innovate the fps genre yet again,wich ofc the majority knows its bullshit.

Multiplayer is a good mix between COD and BF3. Don't care about SP

Norrison1976d ago

MP is being forced into every game and SP is losing quality because of people like you.

TheGameHuntah1975d ago

Is not my fault if the developers are doing a crappy job with their SP campaigns. I'm not AGAINST SP, but they need to start doing something better.
That's why I always ended playing MP only.

Rivitur1975d ago

Looks left at Dishonored sitting in the corner of the room then looks right at Metro: LL flicking a lamp on and off.

Vip3r1975d ago

True Norrison.

I've been saying that since 2008. All people care about these days, especially with the PS3/360 games is SP. Because of that SP has to suffer badly. That and devs dont have the time or care to fix bugs and glitches.

Skyrim is the latest game I like that doesn't have MP and is fun to play. That and when my internet is down I still have decent games to play too.

doogiebear1975d ago

Actually, did u ever consider that SP was being forced on this game, instead of the other way around? Some game's main focus is mp. Nobody had high hopes for the sp. I understand your point though, like how some AssCreed games were short due to tacked on mp (even though the mp was good), yet people came for the sp. But MOH leant itself to the notion that MP was it's primary selling point. Not all MP is tacked on, in fact, it's primary, while some others have short, boring SP tacked on (like BF3)

Ju1975d ago

What's so bad about MoH's SP campaign? Plays great. Looks great. Does a couple of new things.'s a generic war shooter. What you expect.

Pillville1976d ago

A solution for this would be to get rid of SP for these types of shooter games.

They could include an offline "bot" mode for people who don't play online, want to practice, or are playing years later.

FunAndGun1975d ago

no, they should just sell them separately SP/MP, and then offer a package with both.

There are a lot of people who only play the SP, and there are a lot of people who only play the MP.

pay for what you want and play what you like.

DivineHand1251975d ago

Single player is very important for the medal of honor series. It has a reputation of giving an accurate historical representation through their single player campaign.

I haven't been following warfighter so idk if they stuck to their roots with this new iteration but dropping the single player is not an option.

@FunAndGun that will never happen because they will lose money.

Rivitur1975d ago

Actually that's exactly what Counter Strike GO did they placed a offline mod where you play with bots and the other mode is training course.

nunley331975d ago

killzone 2 & 3 has an offline bot mode, its rather good.

R6ex1975d ago

No SP, no buy.

Developers should not mix SP & MP together in the same game.

Remember the anger generated in ME3, due to the need for MP to get max. readiness? What a farce!

Mutant-Spud1975d ago

I'd pay a monthly fee for COD or Battlefield Multiplayer, there's nowhere to go with "modern" military FPS singleplayer, apart from generic terrorist hunts since that's pretty much all combat troops do these days, unless people want games about deploying to do hurricane relief or peacekeeping in the Solomon Islands.
COD and BF singleplayer campaigns over the last few years have just been basically cops and robbers, Operation Flashpoint at least tried to do something different but the execution wasn't great, what was the last real War game we had on consoles?
World At War? Hell's Highway?

Don't understand why EVERY SINGLE OTHER SHOOTER ON EARTH gets sh!t reviews other than COD, when they all do the same, damn thing.
There is nothing here that COD hasn't done and vice versa.
What gives?!

IIC0mPLeXII1975d ago (Edited 1975d ago )

Im sure Halo will get an obligatory 9 and up across the board, its not just call of duty.

JellyJelly1975d ago

Halo usually backs up its scores with amazing quality though. It gets the scores it deserves. Maybe if COD (or any other big name FPS) had something like Forge, but that will never happen. And that's only one of the features that sets Halo apart from other shooters.

Ju1975d ago (Edited 1975d ago )

^^^ Doesn't change the fact, if you read through the negatives this game gets in review is as generic as it gets an can be applied to pretty much every shooter these days, but yet it make this a bad game. ??? No review I read so far - and gave this game a 5 - criticizes the game itself. Most is criticism about the genre but not Danger Close's implementation. The game related issues - which this game has, I don't say it doesn't - would rate it 8, but nothing below.

Because this game does a LOT right what other games don't. And nobody talks about that.

InTheLab1975d ago (Edited 1975d ago )

You clearly haven't played either of the rebooted MoH games. Both are sloppy and borderline broken whereas CoD, generally,has a much tighter campaign with few glitches (sp of course).

I am interested in how Euro and Dtoid are going to dig themselves out of the hole they've created with these reviews when the next CoD shows up with

The Eurogamer review really pointed out the issues with the sp like disappearing enemies, while Dtoid went with more of a general consensus approach like how we're all tired of Modern shooters.

The thing that I don't get is why the worst CoD in years (going by the new found standards of Destructiod) got a nice pass for being little more than regurgitated crap from previous titles like slo mo breaches, turret section, grizzled vet following, sniper section, etc.
