The Medal of Honor series is back with a new first person shooter, set –again- during Second World War. Don’t get me wrong here: the lack of originality in the game's historical background must not be taken as a negative point.
On the contrary, many other similar games have demonstrated that this conflict makes the perfect scenario for some frantic war action.
Medal of Honor: Airborne tests your abilities as a soldier from the very beginning, with an impressive parachute jump in the middle of a fierce battle.
You'll have to steer your way until landing, always looking for a safe spot. If you survive this first test, then you're ready to grab your weapon and carry out the missions you've been entrusted with.
The first few minutes are just crazy. There are soldiers shouting everywhere, whistling bullets flying all around, far away explosions and fire-spitting machine guns.
The incredible realism of graphics and sound effects plunges you right into the conflict, achieving a degree of immersion that makes you feel like you were really there.
