About Medal of Honor

The eponymous FPS focuses on the Tier 1 Operator, namely "a relatively unknown entity directly under the National Command Authority who takes on missions no one else can handle." This new installment follows the tradition of telling the individual soldiers' stories, bringing the player twice as close to the action.

Summary

Medal of Honor re-enters the crowded FPS market with a modern war setting that will likely not shock anyone. While seemingly conflicted at its core, Medal of Honor is a refreshing break from the likes of Call of Duty, just don't expect it to have as big of an impact.

We like

  • The realistic war setting
  • The easy to use and varied gameplay mechanics
