Professional gamers, meaning those gamers that get a new game, set on the hardest level. And then go on to play the game to completion. These types of gamers bring down the rating of games. Where as a bad game is obvious to everybody. My point is that as a average player. I get a game set it on normal and try my hand at it. If that level is to hard, I try again on easy. If i find a game so difficult that its easy level is too much for me then I will begrudgingly give up on it ( cursing the maker of the game all the while). But as long as I honestly try my best, then i'm fine with it. Medal of Honor Airborne is a very very good game. And if it wasn't for the over used WWII formula, it would be a excellent game. That and the fact that it was kinda short. Medal of Honor Airborne is a good shooter to use to train with. Even for you professional gamers ( try playing it in one shot one kill mode Mr Tough Guy).
This game really is the same old Medal of Honor that we've all seen in the past. Now don't get me wrong, the gameplay is fun, very fun actually, and the airborne division is a brilliant idea, although there are minor flaws.
I have noticed, even on Normal difficulty, the enemies have dead aim, or in other words, never seem to miss you. Your health is constantly dropping, but hey, that's pretty realistic right?
Parachuting and landing anywhere to start your fight is pretty cool, you can land on roofs and everything, no real problems with that feature.
Multiplayer is fun, but in my opinion extremely unbalanced! The airborne division gets to parachute down and land wherever they want, while the Germans are stuck on the ground. You will find yourself constantly looking up to try to spot them.
Overall great game, I had fun with it, definitely a must-rent if you like first person shooters, or WWII games. 8/10

Let me say I am a big fan of the MOH series, but this game falls short in a shooting game. The graphics are amazing, the controls are easy to understand and use, but the game lacks one important aspect. When aiming at the enemies they are difficult to hit and several times you will be forced to fire 5 times to hit the enemy. This destroy's the game, don't buy this game, rent only
