Medal Of Honor: Warfighter

I think I can see the last original idea we had!

One of the hoary old jokes we lazy gaming hacks like to do is dismissively refer to “ManShooter VIII” or “Gears Of Duty MCVIIXI”, sneering at the homogenisation of the mainstream industry. But really, the sarcasm is going to be undetectable if games keep calling themselves Warface and Warfighter. The latter is, of course, the moniker of the second Medal Of Honor game in the rebooted series. And there’s another trailer of its single player (sort of) below.

The restarted Medal Of Honor from 2010 was ballskins. So I’m desperately hoping they’ll have listened to criticisms, and maybe let you – the human being playing the game – actually feel like you’re playing at any point in this one. Not that this trailer gives that impression, because despite being described as a “single player” trailer, in fact it just shows cutscene after cutscene after cutscene, of a man looking sad and being called daddy and then some shit blowing up.

If they want to make an animated action movie, surely they could just do that?

The game is currently set for the 26th October (the day before my birthday! Thanks EA!), giving it a two week head start on CODBLOPS2.
