Medal of Honor: Warfighter Review | Saving Content

Excerpt: "I’m not entirely sure, but I believe this Medal of Honor has a score to settle with doors, as you’ll breach over two dozen doors to which you throw a flashbang, then slow-motion kill enemies that are standing behind them. The excessive amount of door breaching is fine given there’s over a half-dozen tools to do the job, you unlock more as you use the prior tool. It’s novel, but overdone. Warfighter also eschews what modern games of really any variety ask of you to do: collect things. They simply don’t exist here and there is absolutely no reason for them to. It unfortunately makes the campaign a one-stop shop, even a higher difficulty may not be enough for a return trip.

The campaign is carefully crafted and linear as a result, but it is not without heartfelt moments, pure adrenaline, and militaristic tactics. The attention to detail in cutscenes, actions, dialogue, and terminology makes for a believable world. Danger Close has excelled at ensuring that the military gets proper respect and does nothing to insult the inherently dangerous tasks laid out before servicemen." (Medal of Honor: Warfighter, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 4/5

There are so few fair reviews like this one out there. This has got to be the most under-rated and unfairly bashed game I have ever witnessed. Absolutely love the multiplayer, and it spanks COD MW3 in just about every single possible way. Better graphics? Check. Better weapon balance? check check. Better Better maps? Check. Better hit detection? check. Dedicated servers? triple check. No quick scoping crap? check. No ridicules amount of unbalanced perks ruining the game? Check. No knife attacks from 30ft away? Check. No kids running around with cheap ass akimbos ? Check. Not getting killed every few minutes from horrible spawn system? Check. Buddy system that leads to awesome team play? Check. New game engine that is not 5 YEARS OLD. Check. Vastly improved from the last year's game? Check. So then the scores should be as good or not better than the last one, right? Nope. No check. They are almost twice as bad, and all because of the media acting like little kids being butt hurt that they didnt get the red carpet rolled out for them by EA and early review access. And I don't blame them; after reading some of the reviews, I am not sure what planet those reviewers live on, but it's not earth.. Unless you pay your way to high reviews like COD and Halo 4, then good luck getting many honest reviews. ...It just shows you how the industry is nothing but financial politics and back scratching when it comes to reviews. The loser here is the players how many have been scared off of this game due to biased reviews that knock off points for the exact same things you find in COD and Battlefield, "It's not innovative". Really? Cause COD MW 3 was essentially a $60 map pack expansion yet scores of 9's abounded.. BTW, the buddy system is more innovative than anything seen in COD in a long time. Welcome to the new age, where review scores are purchased....
