The best medal of honor in a while....
(Review for Xbox 360 game.) Despite knowing what will come, I still try the medal of honor games with hope that they will get better. It finally happened. This is not only the best medal of honor, but one of the best WWII games in a while. The game lets you play a US paratrooper named Travers as you jump into the levels from a plane. You steer your chute down to where you want and complete the sprawled out missions in the vast, non linear towns of Europe. Using a vast arsenal of realistic working and shooting weapons such as The 1928 Thompson, M1 Garand, Colt 1911, and several other realistic weapons, you fight several different axis enemies with okay AI. The games shooting is a mixed idea. Hitting your target is not as easy as other games. This could be a problem do to bad hit detection or major realism like in BIAs(brothers in arms) games. But it also has a very realistic shooting mechanic. You squeeze the trigger on the controller to maintain accuracy just like in real life. The game also features a weapons upgrade system. For each enemy you kill, the little meter moves up and then the gun upgrades. (Better accuracy, higher capacity, stronger bullets, etc.) And don't worry, most of these upgrades are realistic and stick to real life upgrades so you still have very realistic weapons. MOH:A also has excellent graphics and good working controls. The multi player is good as well. While the health system is not as forgiving as Call of Duty, you'll still have a fighting chance. Don't miss this game, or you'll be sorry.
