Medal Of Honor Warfighter Review

A shooter in which you fight doors, er, wars.

You know, I find it kinda funny that people honestly say that the Escapist has sold out to EA when they give reviews like this. Rather accurate "meh" reviews.

I clicked the comment link for the Doorfighter song, and it led me here O_o

Ouch it might not sell well after all....

Well, I most definitely did not see this one coming, especially here on the Escapist, since you uploaded your previous two songs that you did just for fun (I'm very certain there's a shorter way of saying that) on Youtube. As for the song itself, it was pretty nice. Nothing spectacular like your work normally is, but hey, I don't think anyone asked for this, which makes me completely okay with that.

EDIT: Wait, this is the comment section for the review of the game? Damn.

EDIT #2: Wait wait, this is Gavin's review and he made a song to accompany it? Now I'm really confused.

While funny and everything, it just doesn't feel too much like a song for a minute long.
It just doesn't feel right, sorry.

Oops got here from the Miracle of Song thing, and had no idea it was a review >_>

Bringing back "Miracle's Whip", eh? ;)

Nice review anyways, Gav.
Looking forward to see more reviews, if you're planning on doing more. :)

Yeah, it might be slightly confusing but this is a fun little add-on for Gavin's review of Medal of Honor. We just uploaded it to his gallery instead of the normal reviews one.

You do know that the 2010 Medal of Honor sold 5 million copies right?

Whelp,that review confirms what I've been seeing and hearing: It's trying to do what's been done before,and even then...Meh. Modern Military FPS. You played one,you played them all.

Amazing stuff! Sounds like it could be the theme tune to an early 90's action cartoon!

Gavin Dunne, why are you so f*cking awesome even when making parodies of shitty games?

Even when making a song that's meant to insult the brand it's representing, it's still catchy and awesome. I almost expected a power ballad in there.

In regards to the review, I love seeing Gavin let out his angry side. I bet he visualized some of those doors being the faces of publishers and developers.

Well, the GOOD news about the game is: The driving is apparently really good. WMaybe a bit wonky driving-physics, but that's excusable considering that it's an FPS with no actual vehicles... I think, it deserves the nickname "Wardriver" and can at least wear THAT thing proud.
Funfact - the driving section run on their own .exe and the game quits and boots up again if you start one of those (MOHW for normal, MOHWD for driving).

If the bloody thing would work, that is. A friend of mine played it through and it took him about four hours - despite him dying multiple times, being stuck due missing or broken scripts (at one point, he had to restart the entire mission TWICE simply because an imporant NPC died - yet the game never noticed because said NPC was supposed to be invincible. At another point, he had a bush, that pretty much ate his grenades: Thrown in, nothing happened.)
5 to 6 hours for the campaign is probably a bit too much. 3 to 4 hours are more like it.

On the other hand... it allowed RE6 to say that it is NOT the worst game of the year because RE6 at least works for the most part. :P

Note on the song: I don't think people in the military wear steel toed boots anymore. Think it might be because it's actually more likely to chop off/crush your toes than non steel toed boots if something large/heavy enough lands on your feet.

Please keep in mind, I may be wrong, but then again, when my older brothers came back from the Army and Marines respectively, their boots lacked steel toes, and when they bought replacement military boots, they too lacked steel toes.

Onto the review, I'm a bit surprised you've done one. Guess you love your mon-ays! :P

Are we to expect more of them in the future?

People say that?

Anyway, this is game that actually kills you for walking off the path. It's like they went out of their way to make generic linear shooting even worse. Maybe its a cry for help. Judging by the review, I'm surprised to see it even garner a 2 and 1/2. I can only imagine the half star is demonstrative of the Escapist's vassalage to EA.

Gav should review more!

And speaking of Team America, the song, to me, evoked the kind of parody song that Parker/Stone would do...

Hm. I heard someone say the story was very good for an FPS. I think I'll stick to Spec Ops: The Line.

The best thing about the game is clearly that it inspired the song 'Door Fighter'

People say that about EVERY reviewer. You can't put pen to paper without someone claiming you're either taking bribes from $BIG_PUBLISHER for good reviews or $THE_COMPETITION for bad ones.

Gav reviewed Warfighter also? I must look into this.

As I am here from Doorfighter, though, I shall leave this comment:

Fuck doors. Seriously, why is it in almoast every FPS I play, I can open a stupid fucking wooden door? Im carrying enough guns, ammo, and explosives to level a small African village[1], but I cant get through a wooden door?

*Edit*

Read review, nothing new.

I guess Ill stick with COD and Halo.

[1] Ouch, that went somewhere it shoudlnt...

Not for want of trying to make it one. However, both games in the reboot have been pretty mediocre, for all their vaunted accuracy.

Gotta say, those door kicks were awesome. Im glad you enjoyed the game Gav. :P Some of them were pretty awesome though.

Honestly though, I havent played the single player yet, but the multiplayer is freakin amazing, especially when I play with a good buddy who is well trained in the military and we move like a damn unit. Yeah.

Doors should be the new villains, russians/talibans are so overrated nowadays.

Interesting. It doesn't matter anyway because the dudes in this game have TOES OF PURE STEEL

And as for more reviews, we'll see, I was asked to do this one as I'm a big FPS person who would know his way around the multiplayer bits. We''ll see how things go :)

Actually EA did pay me to give it a medium to middling review, to debunk bribing evidence found by some internet gaming super spy,named 'Zippy Lee' or something like that.

Not really

A big budget shooter that they pumped a boatload of money to? Yeah, I think this is pretty high on their list. And considering that the last one sold pretty well, I imagine they thought they could get it to possibly slightly rival CoD, ergo it is a main title.

Song sounded good.

Game looked horribly dull, were those NPCs just standing there and not shooting back? I mean even the dumbest AI moves and shoots right?

Or maybe it was just limited footage, not a clue about the game and to be honest not all that interested.

I personally find it hilarious how they constantly talk about Tier 1 in reference to this game, but having known guys who have been so called Tier One operatives, they have never used that term before. None of them have said, "I'm a Tier One operator for the Navy!" They say, I am/was a Navy SEAL. It's just hard for me to mentally reconcile using broad spectrum language like that for very specialized and individualized units. All Tier One units don't do the same thing. The point is that they are ultra specialized, as in not for every situation.

Is it me or does this game look like MOH and battlefield have been on will it blend?

So it seems boots are the key to victory.

Not EA, Bioware.

Soo...The biggest "innovation" that works (the fire team thing) is something that's ALREADY been done in Army of two?

........Yeah, I'm not impressed.

You would think that the Medal of Honor franchise would have enough mud on it that they'd just give up and try to make a new franchise to get gullible people to buy into. When I see Medal of Honor in the title I know I can safely skip it, as it'll be a average CoD clone at it's absolute best.

Love the song!

Total Biscuit has a vid that perfectly shows a great example of dieing when doing something the game doesn't want you to that Gav talked about.

I'd link it but it might be considered to be in bad taste to post it here in Gav's review.

EDIT:

MiracleOfSound:

I'm always happy to have some TotalBiscuit on my threads ;) The guy is outspoken, funny and brutally honest, all of which I admire.

Alrighty then:
