Medal of Honor: Warfighter Review | GameSpot

GameSpot - Medal of Honor: Warfighter doesn't merge its cliched parts into a satisfying whole, making it just another middle-of-the-road military shooter.

Why are people calling this a "generic story" they tried something unique with Preacher's story and I can honestly say that i nearly cried at the end. Something that no other FPS has done..

Despite the very low reviews I bet this is still going to sell quite well, people love their holiday FPS games

What did they do differently?


A person died, but you don't really care about him. Ghost in COD had more importance....I liked what they were doing, but they didn't develop it enough. A short 5 hour campaign, if they expanded it to 10 hours with more story it would have done something different, but as it stands yes it is very stereotypical....It's like the guy getting shot in Battlefield 3, you didn't care he was shot for any reason beyond he was a soldier and now you have to protect him.

Visually it was awesome, thats about it though. And the end yeah it got me emotional tied to it, but that wasn't for the game, it was for our real life soldiers....the game didn't portray that quote well at all till the very last scene.

Go watch Saving Private Ryan and We Were Soldiers and see how that story would have been done correctly, and they only had two hours to tell the story. MOH had 5 or more....

@rituska666/Same thing happend to me,it was dreadful how bad those ladies looked at the end,it was scary,freaky made me wanna cry after playing 4-5 hours of this run of mill shooter.

And IGN gave it a 4.5.....I don't understand IGN, do they not actually play the games when they preview them? IGN was going "omg its amazing!" all the way up until launch, then they delay their review and still go "oh its pretty good" and then turn around and say "it sucks!"

amaguli2092d ago

Well to be fair, the person that does the previews almost never does the reviews, and MOH is one of the ones that the reviewer didn't preview.

Different opinions from different people, blame the preview guy for hyping it up, the reviewer had nothing to do with it.

Soldierone2092d ago

I'd agree but the person that did the review was even saying that. During the video explaining why his review was delayed he said "It's growing on me and its rather good. The single player is awesome"

And I think its a bit wrong to have two different people work on one game. Or at least have some communication between the two, or more than one review....

amaguli2092d ago

OK, I don't really check IGN's review in progress stuff, but that is messed up to say that a game is rather good and give it a 4.5.

I know Gamespot explains why they do that in their review policy page, it's to prevent some bias and conflict of interest. I do agree that it is wrong though to have two people work on one game.

Welcome to game previews. Sad but true.

They ALWAYS say a game is looking stellar. A lot of them read like modified press releases. It's pretty silly, actually.

Marquis_de_Sade2092d ago

Perhaps the areas EA/Danger Close released for preview didn't give an accurate/fair representation of the game as a whole.

I'm almost done sp & am lvl 45 in mp.
The game is fun. Period. I'm not sure when ratings and journalism in gaming got so derailed....but it's out of touch. And many people - gamers I mean who frequent forums and reviews...they happily bag on games they either never played, had no intention of playing and feel like they need to support only one game in a genre.

Ign gave it 4/10.....sp looks great, plays good and feels believable. Story arc is different and feels like act of valour...which was fun ride.

I could go on....I'm just over the need for games to have to be 9/10 to be worth our time.
It's flawed but decent with a few new ideas.

pompombrum2092d ago

I'm glad review sites are giving this such low scores. While I've only played the beta, it felt fairly obvious to me that this wasn't made to challenge the the fps elite and more to capitalize on the current state of the fps market.

Obviously fans of the game can't understand it but when a game scores so low universally, it's usually for a reason.

guitarded772092d ago

It also means I'll be getting a hell of a deal on the game come Black Friday!!! From what I heard from most gamers I trust, the game is nothing groundbreaking, but it's fun, especially if you go into it not expecting anything revolutionary, but just a good time shootin' stuffs.
