Much like a number of the more storied gaming franchises lately, Electronic Arts' Medal of Honor is now on the receiving end of a series reboot. Part of the game's re-imagining is changing the setting of the game from World War II to the current strife in Afghanistan. While the change makes the game more timely, it also makes it more controversial as can be seen from EA's midnight-hour decision to change the name the user-playable "bad guys" from Taliban to OPFORCE (for "opposing force") after receiving pressure from a number of U.S. military-affiliated groups and organizations.
In all of the hype building up to this game's release, one would have sworn it was to be the end-all-be-all of military shooters. While it doesn't quite live up to such lofty expectations, it does prove to be a rather good title in the genre -- possibly better than last year's Activision release Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
