Medal of Honor: Airborne – PC Gamer Review

Our roving, investigative, and surprisingly tall reporter Quintin Smith has reviewed Medal of Honor: Airborne for PC Gamer, and it’s gone up on their site.

I link it because, well, it’s one of the best written reviews I’ve read in ages. And the game’s rather fun too.

“I responded by throwing all my grenades in random directions and leaping behind a piece of cover that turned out to have a Nazi behind it. A rifle-butt duel followed that had all the grace of a ladies’ slap fight, but when the Nazi did the polite thing and died I realised I had a perfect view of a fuel tank. Bemused, I proceeded to detonate the thing with a few shots from my rifle.”

    I’ve been enjoyed Airbourne too. I can see why the soldier-sim folks like Carey are disgusted, though. Their games are more rewarding.

  2. John Walker says:

    I think most importantly: Future Cyborg Nazis! That’s the only reason I can think of for why the gas-mask-faced uber-soldiers could withstand three rockets to the face.

  3. Jim Rossignol says:

    They can do that because they’re *very* well trained.

  4. Quinns says:

    Now that’d be a game. Medal of Honour: 2025. Nazis on hoverboards! Laser bren guns! Reverse paratroopers that use jetpacks to launch themselves en masse from the ground to the Russian Grand Battleboats that dominate the skies, blotting out the sun!
