MOH Airborne is a mediocre (at best) WWII shooter. The "parachuting in" idea was well-thought out, but the levels are still linear and cramped. Each level gets progressively further from reality, til the point you feel like you're back in 1994 playing Wolfenstein 3D, fending off walking freaks wielding machineguns (not to mention the last level takes place in a gigantic 50 story flak tower, but I digress). The graphics and sound are solid and are just about the only stand out part of this game. The SP campaign is short, I had it beat in 5-8 hours. It may or may not be fun to play back through for the Jump Master achievement, though I'm guessing it wouldn't be.
Multiplayer is a mess. It's buggy, and frequently all that happens is you get spawn camped by people using rocket launchers.
All in all this game is another piece of EA garbage. This game is great at making you wish Gamefly had sent you Bioshock, though.

"I'm a die hard fan of World War II games. This is the best Medal of Honor game I've ever played. It gives you the ability to land in different locations when entering battle, a very nice change-up in the right direction. A fresh new era of World War II games are sure to imitate this game."
