A proper take on modern warfare

This title shows the current conflicts around the globe in a more believable, far truer light. Gameplay is tougher, but making decisions based on whether or not getting hit by one bullet will kill you really notches up the immersion. This looks as good, if not better, visually than any other shooter of the same age, too.

The campaign takes part in Afghanistan, and has you fighting into insurgent strongholds and attempting to rescue hostages, both during daylight and in the dead of night. Battles that take place while wearing night vision goggles are awesome, and have that same detached quality about them as those shown on television. You'll also be involved with ambushes, amongst other things - Medal of Honor covers quite a lot in a relatively short campaign.

Guns look and sound great, and distant firefights have that odd "pop-crack" sound to them, much like raw footage from "over there". You can tell actual soldiers were involved in the development of this title from the way the squad works together and signals one another, and how the individual personalities of each character shine through, even during heavy fighting.

The multiplayer is still alive, and plays much the same way as Bad Company 2, but with more of a focus on close-quarters combat, where a simple mistake can quickly cost you the game.

Stability-wise, Medal of Honor has always run great for me, and I've never encountered any lag during the campaign, and only online when I've been connected to a server in another country. This is definitely one to get if you like your combat a little more hard and gritty.

Great, similar to Battlefield with a longer SP campaign...

The Single play campaign take place in afganistan, modern day of course. You assume to position of several different soldiers throughout the game, which may confuse some, but its a great way to freshen the game up a bit and add realism. Speaking of realism, this game has alot of that! you can die from one headshot from the enemy, certainly adds alot of tension to the game! The graphics are very good, and so is the sound. If you like any of the previous MoH games or BF games, you'll love this one!
