first things first, To compare this game to the COD series is a tragedy. It's sad that most war-fighting games receive lower review scores because people use COD as a standard bearer. Having said this, MOH warfighter is a game that people really need to seek a second opinion. The graphics and game play are very nice and the story lines that are based on actual events gives you an understanding of what dangers our men and women in service see and go thru everyday. There will always be those who swear by the COD series and those who are diehard fans of the MOH series. Just like there is Team Jacob and Team Edward for the twilight series. If your looking for something that plays like COD, then buy COD, otherwise, this may not be the game for you. BTW, when doing the sniping missions, if you think that there is something wrong with the aim, just keep in mind that sniping is not just point and shoot, they actually put mechanics in place that account for other factors like wind, distance, height. you know, things that actual snipers have to account for.
Single player was not bad although a bit short and pretty easy to beat. Graphic looks great and control worked very well. I was never able to try the online play because there was never any matches going on. Again this is one of those games that wants you to pay for a code to play online, which I think is ridiculous, although it gives you a free two day trial. For what these games cost we should be able to play for free. If the game is worth buying, we will go buy it but know one. The whole reason to rent them is to make sure we are not spending hard earned money on a horrible game.
MOH Warfighter has a great campaign. Missions are based on real life events that these operators have done.Decent story that is very authentic and could easily happen in real life. Easily the best campaign in an FPS I've played. Although COD is supposed to have the fun none stop action campaign, I think MOH easily surpasses COD. Multilayer is filled with customization of weapons and the character. The multiplayer menu is very confusing and hard to navigate. Furthermore, after mid November I could not get into a lobby with more than 3 players on each team. Obviously MOH falls way below the standards of COD. Not saying the gameplay isn't there but the support sure isn't. Fairly satisfied with the game overall. Some games (COD,HALO, Assassins Creed, Gears of War, SOCOM) are made by these developers to make money and with MOH I felt it was more of a tribute than anything else; yes they make the game to make money but the studio did more than that and their main objective was to get a message across and created this piece of art in respect to the Special Operations community and their families. This game depicts the stories and sacrifices that these men make. Campaign is there; multilayer is not. Definitely not a buy if you are looking to skip campaign; but a rent is my recommendation if you are interested in the SF community and looking to play a very good emotional and overall grasping(fun) campaign. Honestly campaign: 9.5, multiplayer: 5.5
