1: White knuckle, meat and potatoes gameplay that sets it apart from the more polished and over the top shooters like COD (which is the cotton candy of shooters).
2(and the biggest reason for 1): They brought back the fluid lean/peek from Airborne! It was a revelation then and I missed it dearly since. I wish every FPS would take this and run with it. Better than any wall-sticking cover system (in 3rd or 1st person). LOVE IT! Perfect! It's how a lean/peek should be done. You throw it together with the toggling of your sights/optics and your rate of fire and every piece of cover can become an intense mini-game unto itself (with a little practice). I fear most who play this will never mess with it enough to see it as anything special. It is.
I'm giving it a 9 (and not a 10) because it's a little buggy, I don't care for regen health (especially in a game trying so hard to be realistic in other ways), the same for the infinite ammo on secondary weapons and friendly AI can be a pain. I still think what this game does right is so special that I can't go lower than a 9 despite its flaws.

Well Here we go again with Medal Of honor...And sorry to say its nothing but a polished off copy of Battlefield 3 Yet the main differnce is well no vehicles to Jump in and fight over yet everything else is kinda the same. Plus Big surprise From EA yet again with an online pass yet its not really worth Buying with Much MUCH better games comming around the line in not even a few weeks.
The only reason I gave it a 6 outa 10 well the single player was at least better then Battlefield and keeps you guessing with a bit more gritty feel of what Our Boys go through over there and what we don't hear about all the time. All in all its OK at best. If your looking for a good shooter well try it out yeah but its not gonna last long let alone be in your Q by the time the others come back out.
I could hardly even finish it. By the third mission I could see that this was just your typical 1st person shooter. Run through this building, kill all the terrorists, breach a door, and a slow motion explosion. There you go, that's the whole thing in one sentence. Only fun part was a driving level in the beginning the rest was painfully boring.
