Medal of Honor: Warfighter Xbox 360 User Review
Super Gamer Dude
Medal of Honor Warfighter is an action packed war zone third person shooter and the game has a similar theme to that of other games such as Modern Warfare 2, Battlefield to name a couple of examples.
First the graphics, the developers have done an excellent job with them and the attention to detail is second to none, unlike many other games on the same theme, the overall feel of the game is more representative of the style which you would expect. The realism is there and every mission is geared towards being as realistic as possible and the detail is meticulous with the exception of the AI which lets it down slightly. The game is also based on actual real life past events which is probably how they makes it all the more believable.
The AI is something which needs improvement, during battle for instance, we see once again how predicable certain enemies are when in a gun fight, no solider is going to perform the actions shown in some of the sequences. Another example is the popping up from behind cover at regular intervals every few seconds which is predictable, or enemies running straight towards you, neither of which is likely to happen. It would have been nice to see the enemies actually having some fighting strategy where you have to flush them out from hiding, rather than seeing them presented as sitting targets.
The action takes place in various locations around the world including Bosnia, Somalia, Pakistan, and the Philippines among many others. There are also various classes and these include Assault, Demolitions, Sniper, Heavy Gunner, Pointman and Spec Ops.
There are also diverse customizations which you can apply to the players weapons and characters, these range from paint jobs, magazines, muzzles and many other items which enable better armed combat during gameplay. There are also various game modes and some of these are Sector Control, Hotspot, Combat Mission, Homerun as well as others.
Overall the graphics, gameplay and sound really give you the feel of actually being in battle, granted there are some minor problems but nothing alarming enough to really worry about. The game is crisp, the controls are easy to use and all in all this is one of the best first person shooters, with enough unique aspects to separate it from other games of similar style.
