    I'm really excited for Medal of Honor: Airborne to come out. I've already pre-ordered it for the PC. Any of you looking forward to playing this game? What do you guys think about it? Do you think it'll be a sucess?

    Nice shot, KF.
    It's good game. All the series are good - except Pacific Assault. :)
    But MOFA will be successful anyway amongst the fans.
    Call of Duty is over for a while, so people, I think, will buy it.

    I never tried Pacific Assault. The MOH game I hated was the Rising Sun one. The levels were very long and the ending wasn't great. What really scared me on that game were the Japanese soldiers who'd take out their samurai swords and try to kill you with them. My cousin and I didn't see one until we were at this Guadacanal level. We didn't even know they were on this game. So, you can imagine our shock when a Japanese soldier came charging through the fog brandishing a sword. It scared the life out of us.
     
  4. yeah i think its gonna be a really good one... what i really like about it is the fact that you can land in multiple places in the map, giving you different ways and opportunities to complete that level... not sure if my PC's graphics card is up for it though =) let me know if its any good...

    marcus69x I love WW2 meah!!!

    Comes out for PS3 this month. Saving up for a PS3 (hopefully by October) so I'll definately be getting that. Saw a demo on a TV in a games shop. The graphics look really cool. Possibly the best I've seen yet. Bring it on.

    Lots of pictures of MOH: Airborne: Medal of Honor: Airborne for Xbox 360 - Medal of Honor: Airborne Xbox360 Game - Medal of Honor: Airborne Xbox 360 Video Game

    I've read that the last level is in Remagen and you get to take out a huge flak tower. There's also a special squad of Nazis in this last level that I've read that have very fast machine guns and are difficult to beat. They also wear gas masks so I'm presuming they have some sort of poison gas machine or a flamethrower, hard to say. It should be interesting.

    You guys have any ideal of what its going to be rated for? I think the rating will be Teen.

    Mate, here is the terrible truth for me.
    I purchased the game and took it home and loaded it. It came up with a notice that said."This game is not supported by your video card.' I took it back.
    Well I got myself 2Gb of ram, but my card is an X-800 radeon PCI. This is shader 1 technology.
    It requires a card like the GTS 8800.Dual core with pixel shader 4 physics technology
    In Perth the best price is $500. So I can't justify it.

    I have Crysis ordered which will play on my system. I downloaded the demo and checked.

    For me MOH: Airborn is crap. I'll tell you why - this part of endless series gives no new gaming experience, no ability to browse levels free - everything is scripted, promised ability to land everywhere after jump is fake and etc. The only plus of this game is its action - when you r running shooting MP40 in every direction, throwing grenades in every windows - thats really cool :) But..

    hehe, i've have to denote that i'm quite impressed by Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare multiplayer so I even got licensed version to play in internet after played pirate version on LAN :)

    Im very impressed with MOH, major jump forward from the previous efforts, intorducing a bit of reality inyo it now. Guns are wholew lot better specially the SMG's which are now only effective up to 50 yrds or so and completly inaccurate after a few rounds. Bit of tactics too, you can use flanks and ambushes. Enemy AI is really sweet, love the way they charge you on mass and retreat when cut off. Shoot the officer the grunts run back. they duck and shout their mates to help them. Sounds nice too.

    Very impressed. as good as BIA RT30 or EIB not sure, but its a great improvement.

    Alex....now you know why as an ex boardgamer, I stick to games that actually put you in the commanders seat when using a computer....like the submarine simulator Silent Hunter 4.....a lot of flight simulators work very well and are quite realistic if you turn the realism up all the way....When I play a first person shooter, I tend to allow as few hits as the game system can handle, and shy away from arcade style games.....if you have to use the terrain and creep forward, thats much better, and lasts longer for the money you have spent on the game....

    All my other computer games are unplayed now, because SH4 is such a good game, and a great simulation to boot.

    Mate, ive been there. Why I went mad a got the xbox, sick and tired of fighting with dirvers and settings trying to get games to work. My card was 18 month old mid range card, it was useless. My disk are also getting a bit full, so for the price of a card and another disc it was just easier to buy an xbox.

    I'm prepared to accept if I’m wrong and to be called a pedant, but I’m concerned about the 'historical accuracy' of MOHA. I have neither played/seen the game played nor read the Historic Notes, that no doubt accompany it, so I can only write from experience of seeing the trailers and reading interviews with design team members.

    What caught my attention was the Op Varsity drop. Actually, the run-in was very accurate and I assume that, since the main character begins in the 82nd AB, the troopers are in the 507th PIR. But where are they supposed to be on landing? Certainly not on any actual Varsity DZ. No US troops landed amongst ruins. They mostly came down in open fields, and some of the 507th landed close to a couple of villages (Diersfordt and Fluren). The only buildings that were near them were farmsteads. It wasn't until nightfall that 507th troops entered Wesel, a significant town, which had taken a beating from Allied bombers.

    So, am I taking this too seriously? Am I being a pedant? Should I just accept that MOHA is a commercial venture, and not a historically accurate lesson about WWII Airborne Ops? That it is just a game for people who aren’t particularly interested in ‘historical accuracy’ beyond weapons and tactics?

    Steve your a pedant? :)

    MOH games have traditionally been shor em up just run at them and fire in the general direction, find the helath pack and repeat.

    Some other games are based on realish characters, in real areas that are remarkably well recreated, with actual buildings, and post op reports, etc. One ofthe the best here is brothers in arms, which uses more realistic tactics where you rely on your mates and sticking your head up at the wrong point (never mind running at them) gets you dead very quickly.

    MOH though not quite like this makes you think about the best way to get rid of that MG42 nest and makes you look for cover and use the correct weopen/squad/tactics/etc.

    If you want the detail you have above look at the BIA range, though it is an interesting point that even the hardcore blow em up asqud now want more realism.

    I accept your charge of being a pedant!!

    I have no qualms with the CGI elements of MOHA. They're excellent. My concern is with the linking of the game to an actual operation.

    So long as MOHA, BIA etc. are accepted as simply allowing players to use weapons and tactics in a 'realistic' manner without much regard for the actual historic settings/events then no problem.

    no BIA is quite accurate right down to details of landscape, units, regiments. its very well researched.

    There is one moment in the game when 2 characters how arse a bout a bit amd are the jokers of the squad get killed off. A bonus is delivered for success in the mission and part of that is transacripts of letters of the next of kin of the real guys the characters are based on. it doesnt really get any closer than that. them gutys where real and didnt get home cos you made mistake in the game.

    Interesting points about BIA. I had a look at some excerpts from BIAHH and have to agree that the buildings, landscape etc. is excellent. One scene showed a bridge blowing up in front of the troopers. Presumably that is the one outside Son. Does the game stay pretty loyal to the rest of the operation?
