Medal of Honor Warfighter reviews cry BF filler only

As we informed you earlier this week, Medal of Honor is now available to download and those of you who have picked it up should have already downloaded a lengthy day one patch that Danger Close released at the first opportunity.

Since the game has just come out, it also means that official reviews are now turning up online as well, and if you are a type of gamer that likes to study as much reviews as possible for a particular game before buying, you are going to be in for an interesting read for sure with the mixed reception that the game appears to be receiving.

Unfortunately, it looks like the majority of gaming publications have not given the game a glowing report, with not one review so far managing to achieve a perfect score – that we have seen anyway. The likes of Eurogamer have only given Medal of Honor Warfighter a 5/10, complaining that the game lacks any identity of its own and merely serves as a ‘filler’ when DICE is unable to release a new Battlefield game each year.

Elsewhere, there’s another 5/10 from Destructoid who have criticized the game by saying that while ‘it’s not exactly bad, it’s not very good either’. Do the reviews now confirm what you have previously thought about the Medal of Honor franchise as a whole? If fans do not have a new Battlefield game to look forward to, the next alternative that will spring to mind is Bad Company without a doubt, pushing Medal of Honor straight to the bottom of EA’s FPS popularity table.

If you have already pre-ordered the game, you’ll be left to make your own conclusions on Warfighter, but if you haven’t picked up the game yet you may be put off slightly after initially thinking the game was going to be excellent. Let us know your initial thoughts on Warfighter and if you pay attention to negative reviews or not before making a purchase.

Played this game and although they trying, they missed out on what was good in old Medal Of Honor multiplayer…the tactical team work in larger combat missions……all they’ve done is follow in COD footsteps to favor the majority of kids greatest tactic…run around like chicken with no head and fire in all directions…..at least bring back the large maps where waves of attack can take place up front and a sniper can actually do his job from way back.

Multiplayer, still too much laggy and with an increasing amount of bugs just popping up. The game is not broken, but they made a cheap job for 60 $

Not tried the Singleplayer side of the game yet, but have played the multiplayer and I have to say its good and feels smooth but the graphics are shockingly poor. This game is supposed to be a DirectX11 game, which means it should look as good as Battlefield 3 if not better considering it is using the exact same engine, but some how Danger Close has managed to make the game look the same or worse than Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3, on the PC and Modern Warfare 3 is a DirectX9 game and uses a very old graphics… Read more »
