Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
Let's face it, EA has milked its Medal of Honor franchise more than a freakin' dairy cow -- and with mixed success. While there have been phenomenal titles such as Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and Medal of Honor: Frontline, there have also been less-than-stellar iterations including Medal of Honor: Vanguard and Medal of Honor: Rising Sun.Medal of Honor: Airborne is the latest in the WWII 3-D shooter series, and it falls somewhere in the middle between the subpar and superb. It's a very good -- but not great -- game that should at least give players a few exhilarating hours of military action.This time around you step into the combat boots of a U.S. paratrooper. 'Go! Go! Go!' are the first words you'll hear after booting up the game, as you follow fellow soldiers towards the open door of a C-47 aircraft and parachute down into hostile territory.The first thing you'll notice about Airborne is that it's the most open-ended game in the franchise, so you can more or less land wherever you...
What's Hot: Fairly open-ended environments; Vertical gameplay is a nice touch; Good soundtrack
What's Not: Takes a few missions to get cooking; Guns recoil too much; Frequent frame rate issues
