Reviews for Medal of Honor: Warfighter
I don't find it THAT bad!PlayTyrant | May 11, 2015 | See all PlayTyrant's reviews »
I remember when this game came out, it was like one step ahead Battlefield 3, with the Frostbite engine. But I played it much later, and it was great. There are several ways to break into the doors, you unlock them when doing certain things, that was very cool. The game (at least for me) was quite good in terms of single player. I didn't play multiplayer for more than 2 rounds. It's not like it's bad, but I was used to Battlefield 4. Not that bad!

This will forever be the game that was known for murdering the medal of honour series in cold blood. Its a full on scripted experience, think of it as a Marvel movie which you have the illusion of controlling, the simple fact is that you cant control anything, you try and move in a way that the game doesn't like, well you sir get sniped from some invisible person which doesn't like your actions. This is game is just too locked down in the singleplayer. Onto the multiplayer which is even worse, you can tell that there isn't a lot of polish with this game, there are a few nice areas like the weapon customization however as a whole it just doesn't stand up to the other games that are in its tier which means call of duty of course. Instead you can tell that its basically been a testing ground for battlefield as that is the more successful franchise currently. it is a stain in the name of medal of honor, its a shame that its the final medal of honor as well.

To jump right in, these types of games are meant to be played in multiplayer. Predictably, the singleplayer campaign is bland and short. Though the main flaw here is how heavily scripted it is and you are not given any kind of freedom to tackle different situations. In effect, it would have worked out much better if they had made it one long cutscene. Anyway, the real meat is the multiplayer. Or at least it's supposed to be. Me and my friend were thrilled the multiplayer was focussed on two man fire-teams as (at the time) it was hard to find 2 additional people to fill a 4-man Battlefield 3 squad. Sadly, multiplayer is a boring mess. It currently has 100 to 500 people playing it any given time. Uses the battlelog web browser system and hasn't recieved any real updates since it first launched. It supposedly runs on the Frostbite engine, but playing it looks and feels console grade. For a game 1 year older than BF3, this is inexcusable. The maps are unbalanced, the kill streak bonusses overpowered and the mini grenades are all you'll ever want to master since you can throw them half-way over any map. Not to mention the hit detection lag, which is much worse than BF3 or BF4 ever had. Both players and the developer/publisher dropped this game a few weeks in. Medal of Honor doesn't have the same marketing value (anymore) like Battlefield has. Compare the mess of this game to Battlefield 4, except unlike BF4, they never bothered trying to fix Warfighter. Even though the fundamentals were there.
