Medal of Honor Warfighter Beta Review

The Medal of Honour Warfighter beta has been available on the XBOX 360 now for a whole week and I have made time to sit down every night and play it. If you are unable to play the beta read on as I will tell you of my amazing experience that I have had.

So, some people will just brand this game as another war fighting game. True. Some people would call it Battlefield 3, well the people that have made Medal of Honour Warfighter are the same people that produced Battlefield 3 plus it has the same game engine, Frostbite 2.0

What makes it different to both Call of Duty and Battlefield and any other war fighting game available? Medal of Honour Warfighter introduces team play. In this game the player is encouraged to work alongside a buddy or in Medal of Honours terms, your fireteam. There is Fireteam Alpha, Fireteam Bravo, Fireteam Charlie etc… Working together to get the job done creates an intense feel to the game; it makes the player want to know where his fireteam buddy is positioned so that they can share ammo or if needed health. How do I find my fireteam buddy, is the question that plays across your lips. Simple, your fireteam buddy has a green glow around their body in which you can see through walls, kind of like a sixth sense. Being forced to work together is something that hasn’t been implemented in recent games and just shows unprofessional research. If you were out on the field being shot at by the enemy in real life, you would HAVE to work together instead of “running and gunning”.

The only game mode that’s available on the beta is, Hotspot. There are 5 targets within the map, one team has to plant a bomb on their target to eliminate it and the other team has to defend it, stopping the enemy accomplishing their mission and moving on to the next target.

I love the fact that before you fire up a game you can decide which country you wish to represent. Will it be the mighty British SAS? Will it be The US Navy SEALS? Or will it be the Canadian JTF2? There are 5 classes, Sniper, Assaulter, Demolitions, Heavy Gunner, Point Man and Spec Ops. Each one of those classes is represented by a country, for example, the Assaulter class will see you taking the role of a British SAS soldier. With every good soldier comes a good weapon. Customisation is another great feature which players have been able to use within the multiplayer beta. This time around EA have nailed it. Customisation in the last Medal of Honour, wasn’t the greatest but in the latest instalment you will be able to add custom paint jobs to your weapon of choice, muzzles can be changed either for the loud or for the stealthy player, you can even change the magazine style.

This is just a small taste of what to expect when the game is finally released on the 23rd October for North America and 26th of October for the UK.
