GAMINGtruth's own Senior Editor G. Bargas delivers the official verdict on EA and Danger Close's newly released first-person shooter Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
Not everyone is hatin'
Yes, that's a good thing. I have to agree that this game was actually rushed though.
Dey see me shootin, dey hatin!
Good to see someone gave it more of an unbiased review! I mean you did focus on the bad points, but on the good points as well. Kotaku just said the game had pretty flashlights, lol.
Finally, an honest and fair review of this game.
Pretty high score for this game. Now the real question is.....does EA shut down this disastrous studio..I think so.
I hope not. The score isn't high but justified. Nobody deserves to loose their jobs over this. What's the matter with people these days?
@BattleAxe Shut down the studio? why would they put people out of jobs over this game when they are clearly a talented team who have produced plent of quality titles in the past, most notably their other MOH games funnily enough. Not EVERY game can be a revolution to the industry or line office walls with awards and commendations. MOH 2010 was a collaboration between Danger Close and DICE, and the fully took the reins with Warfighter. No the game won't win awards or blow minds, but the ridiculous scores and calling for a team of talented people to be put out of work is beyond ridiculous. I myself strive for a job in game design, are you trying to tell me that if i made a game, it was alright but nothing amazing, and got meh reviews you would want me out of work and no money to put a roof over my head? The bigger picture that your comment suggests is clearly something you haven't even REMOTELY turned your brain on for a second for.
Agreed. It's not a perfect game, but it does provide a different experience compared to most of it's competitors. The review scores below 50% really is unwarranted and should be for games that are completely terrible by design to the point where they are unplayable and broken. It's really a solid game and is worth at least a 7/10 in my opinion. It's funny that some of the complaints boil down to it isn't 'Hollywood' and accessible enough.
I agree that the game is getting blasted for a lot of unfair reasons. What shooter has been revolutionary in the way you actually play it? COD changed how an online gaming community progresses with their xp and unlocking system. This game is better than MAG and a lot of other average shooters that I played this generation. Yet, it is getting lower scores. Plus, this game is better than the 2010 version and the scores don't add up right.
It grows on you after a couple of days of playing. I rented it from Redbox first and bought it yesterday. I enjoy the Hotspot mode. 1 life per round.
