The widely anticipated First Person Shooting game Medal of Honor: Warfighter is finally out, but does little justice to the hoopla that got generated prior to its release, managing mixed reviews at the best.
Buzz was that Medal of Honor: Warfighter was developed by EA’s Danger Close studio in association with real Navy SEALs. Couple of moments of sagacity notwithstanding, bewildering gameplay takes away some sheen off the game.
The patriotic narrative pumps you up with adrenaline and on top of that, several improvements have been made when compared with past editions. The series of events are not tied to each other, but that can be attributed to the fact that lives of soldiers are somewhat like that. Some sort of disjointedness is thus on expected lines.
Two lead characters, Stump and Preacher, are controlled by the players. Two teams led by them are out there to fight and destroy a terrorist organization. One has to follow the sequence of events and dialogue narration with utmost care or else be prepared for trouble.
A major part of the game, almost half of it, is associated with non-action related events such as scripted sequences and vehicular movement, which acts as another dampener for players who are looking for slam-bang action. For some players, though, the same proves to be fun depending on individual tastes and expectations.
Some of the better features of the game include ability to add friends, join a platoon and invite others to yours while game is progressing. Some issues with previous versions, like those in cinematic, unresponsive controls, Fallback spawning and default difficulty level etc have been addressed.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter is good enough to deliver half a punch, okay somewhat more than that. The Money Times gives it 7 stars. Go gaming folks, have a shot at it!!
