Take to the skies in Medal of Honor: Airborne, where you'll drop into grueling ground attacks in a bid to turn the tide of WWII. Begin each mission in the air above Axis controlled battlefields, then make your mark in the largest airborne operations in history. Starting with your jump from a C-47 transport plane, every choice you make can seal your fate. In the air, control your parachute to select a landing spot that brings you the greatest strategic advantage. Follow the green smoke to recommended landing areas where Allied forces will be waiting, or go it alone by landing on rooftops or balconies. But craft your strategy carefully: every move you make-from your choice of landing spot to the enemies you engage on the ground-will determine your success in the mission, and whether or not you are truly one of the Airborne elite.

Open Battlefields: Start each mission with an airdrop into enemy territory where the landing spot you choose can dramatically change the course of battle. On the ground, tackle enemies and complete objectives in whatever order you chose as your navigate your way through a massive, free-roaming environment.

Vertical Combat: Fight on the ground or atop roofs, balconies, towers, ruins, and natural formations in a variety of environments authentic to the European Theater of War.

    Affordance AI: A formidable new AI system delivers unpredictable and intelligent enemies which challenge even your most battle-hardened strategies.

      Upgradeable Weapons: For the first time, enhance your chosen weapon with authentic, customizable field modifications that affect your marksmanship.

        War is Hell: How and where you engage the enemy triggers death animations unique to each and every encounter.

         Do you have a NVIDA Graphics Card?

        | | See all BengUK's reviews (19)

        If you have a NVIDIA graphics card do not buy this game as there is a fault with the installer that effects the PhysX controller. The PhysX controller is now built into the NVIDIA drivers.
        This instller sadly demands you have an OLD PhysX controller installed before it will work.

        Sadly no patch, its just a bug in the installer.

         Awesome game but just a note.

        This is a great game. Great gameplay and the graphics are decent aswell. Love the open maps.

        --------------------------

        Just a note that I think Play.com should put in the game description, this game doesnt work in Vista 64bit. Just so all you Vista 64bit users know before you buy the game.

         Played the demo - ordered the game!

        | | See all LoveSpuds's reviews (2)

        I have just spent the last 2 hours playing the same demo over and over, and have just stopped to order the game. Its hard to know where to start really - the graphics, sound, controls, atmoshere, everything oozes class.

        My system is reasonably good, with a Athlon x2 5200XP, 3 Gb RAM and a Radeon 1950Pro, and it runs the game In full detail. The graphics are jaw dropping with the ragdoll physics making each kill a joy - particularly grenade kills. The sound too, is great with all the whizzes, bangs and pops making you duck for cover.

        But for me, the thing that makes this game complete is the wonderfull control method. Normally you have to hold a button down to look down you sights and then press other keys to lean out around corners. Here though, whenever you hold down you mouse button to aim, your movement keys control you leaning instead. So you can pop your head over a wall or out of a window with no effort and without holding down loads of keys -you have got to try it - it works a treat.

        The thing I am most excited about though, is the muliplayer, like all the previous MOH titles, its online that it will really shine, and from the look of this one map and the great controls, I just know its going to live up to my expectations.

        Until I get the full game I wouldn't like to say if its better than Call of Duty 2, but the demo suggests this really could be quite special. If like me you still can't get enough of the WW2 shooters, then do yourself a favour and get the demo, you wont regret it.

         Enjoy it properly.

        There seem to be a lot of people who don't like this title, which is a shame as they are missing out on what is/can be an intense and rewarding game - you just have to understand it.

        For a start, don't play on casual as then it will be too easy and too short. We are PC gamers, we do not play on easy level ! If you keep dying, then you just have to find better tactics and if it's too easy, try it on a harder level :op

        Further, this does not need a high-spec PC. I only have an ageing XP 3200+ system with a radeon 2600XT and it runs as smooth as silk and looks fantastic, as long as you set it up properly. Whereas with a lot of titles you would let the application decide your settings and it would choose the lowest settings, if you let Airborne choose your settings then it will go mad and max everything so give the impression that it needs a massively powerful machine to run it. Simply manually pop it onto 2x AA, etc. and performance textures and it will fly and still look great, not that you will get time to go sight-seeing with all the bullets flying...

        In summary, I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Play it on at least normal level and the Rail yard level was possibly the best I've played in an FPS, and I've played a lot of 'em :o)

         Awesome action, way too short and too distant to make...

        | | See all QuantumCat's reviews (21)

        Great action, way too short and too distant to make a lasting impression.

        Let me begin with the bad.
        -There are only 6 missions that will have about 1-2 hr of playing time, on average depending on how many times you get killed.
        -I don't like the battlefield approach where you can drop in and walk about freely. It sounds nice, but they are still confined (rather small) and you still have to perform the missions in a certain order to unlock parts of the battlefield. This sometimes is forced upon you because you're mates go for target 1, while you landed in target zone 2. What I'm trying to say is this: the freedom to go where you want to go is as big as the battlefield, but the freedom of choice is very limited. Though as the levels progress, so does your freedom.
        On the upside, it's no operation Typhoon. That had a world that was too big. At least with the smaller battlefields of MOH:A you'll meet enemies soon enough.

        -Console based savepoints (called: checkpoints). I'm never a big checkpoint fan. The checkpoints can be reached and saved. It's a bummer that if you land on the wrong spot, you might run around for a reasonable long time and get killed before you reach a checkpoint. I've seen worse use of savepoint though.

        -AI is not perfect. Though overall not bad, in some cases your men seem to want to stand in front of you while your aiming for an enemy and they have the tendency to get them killed. Enemies seem to just stand around doing nothing while you're gunning down their friends and some enemies don't react to getting hit or bullets ricocheting from an object nearby.

        -because of the "only" 6 missions, starting in Italy and ending somewhere in Germany near the end of the war, it's become a more fragmatic gameplay experience, cutting down the story line immersion you had in the previous titles in the series.
        Gives it a bit of a distant feel to it.

        -with all this gun power (thommy gun, colt 45, bar, mg 44) I can't shoot through wooden planks and thin metal plates.

        -Sometimes the enemy doesn't register hits ...are they on PCP or what?

        The good:
        -You can earn upgrades for your guns, for instance a muzzle that reduces the climbing of the gun when firing on automatic, improving the accuracy. The effects of the upgrades are really visible. Nice feature!

        -The graphics are good. Maybe no Crysis, but who cares. They're simply good!

        -The sound is good. It's designed to give you the feeling that you are in the middle of a battlefield. Remember the movie "Black Hawk Down" ...yeah only with Nazi's and Allied Airborne Troops and WWII hardware.

        The action is awesome! Remember that remark about lack of immersion due to fragmatic storylining? Once the action starts you're immersed whether you want it or not. Screw storyline! I want to finish this level! It's a bit like the X-Wing series vs Wing Commander. Wing Commander you wanted to play because of the gameplay and storyline, X-Wing only because of the gameplay.
        Once hell breaks loose ...HELL breaks loose. Black Hawk Down meets WWII!!!

        Conclusion:
        Medal Of Honor: Airborne is a good title that has a few flaws working against it resulting in my rating of 3 stars. For me, it was the lack of decent storyline and the short singleplayer campaign, in the number of missions and in gameplay length.

        One thing that sets this title apart from the previous MOH:A and made the series COD rival, is the action. Only one thing that raises this title above mediocre: The action. The action comes swift, it comes hard and it comes in full.
