Post Arcade review: Medal of Honor: Warfighter hard to recommend

The National Post’s Post Arcade writes:

It seems that virtually every terrorist in the game is suicidal, as evidenced by their willingness to run headlong into nests of American troops with little consideration for their safety. Worse, your allies — supposedly elite soldiers — often can’t hit (or choose not to target) enemies who charge past their line and stand in the open. I haven’t words for the frustration of being repeatedly killed by terrorists coming up from behind while computer-controlled squad-mates just stand around watching. (Medal of Honor: Warfighter, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 5.5/10

If this game had the title CALL OF DUTY it would get a 10 or at least a 9

Hopefully not, I hope that series tanks in the reviews too.

@ seanpitt23, maybe you're right but the difference is COD doesn't try to be something else, it is what it is. MOH is the game with no unique identity, not COD.

Same goes with Halo, Uncharted, Mario, etc. They are games that are pioneers in their own ways. They set standards for other games, they dont copy other games, all they have to do is improve on their winning formulas from one game to the next and it's enough to please critics and fans.

MOH went from a great WWII franchise to a franchise that cloned COD, they don't deserve high scores.

Although i agree with alot of his niggles and gripes with the game, overall the atmosphere of the campaign is great, sound design is fantastic in 5.1 and the guns feel nice and chunky to fire.

The cover system they implemented is also another great addition i haven't seen an FPS pull off since Rainbow 6 or Killzone 2.

No, it isn't the greatest shooter you'll every play, but the more personal, tight nit campaign and varied online make it a pretty solid game imo, if it was me reviewing i'd call it a high 7 or low 8/10.

So I'm wondering if this game is really unplayable like all the scores suggest, or if they are all just trying to make an example of it.

It just seems most of the gripes, like uninspired/generic gameplay could also be leveled at CoD but it doesnt get the sort of bad press this is getting.

Any way, just wondering...

It's not even close to unplayable. it's not going to blow your mind or anything like it, but it's a rock solid shooter with a few rough edges.

But i agree, if this had COD on the box and ran Frostbite 2 with those visuals and sound design? the press would be going nuts to try and push for 11/10 to be registered as a legitimate score.

Just like everything else these days, it's all in favour or reputation and brand name now. If it sells a sh*t tonne and people like to talk about it, giving an honest mediocre score could sink your site, which is total BS.

Gaming journalism has no standards and is massively biased.

Look up the eurogamer piece my Robert Florence, he called journos out on this and was all but forced to give up his writing position and threatened with a law suit for being HONEST.

Thats kind of what I figured.
A 5 to me means the game is a broken piece of crap.
This game simply sounds middle of the road.

All the reviewers are being spitful cause EA made them wait till release day for their copy. They usually get it a few days early so the review can be ready by release day. I played the game. Campaign deserves a 9.5 out of 10. Multiplayer deserves a 6.5 out of 10. Over all id say a 7.5 out if 10.
