If you're looking for an homage to the US soldiers in Afghanistan, Medal of Honor does the job, but the game falls a little short if you want memorable characters and dialogue. The single player experience provides a series of high intensity situations at the expense of character and plot development. That might be ok if your primary reason for picking up the game is for the multiplayer. Otherwise, the game is a solid shooter with plenty of features and opportunities to prove what kind of skilled player you are. In any case, wait for a sale or for the price to drop before picking this game up.
