Medal of Honor: Airborne

After a series of spin-off productions released for the 6th-generation consoles, the popular FPS franchise comes back in a full-fledged multiplayer installment. In accordance with the title, the events of the World War II are observed through the eyes of Boyd Travers, a paratrooper of the US Army's 82nd Airborne Division. The game offers six campaigns that take place between years 1943 and 1945 in Sicily, Normandy, Netherlands, and Germany, and the choice of the drop point determines our next move to some extent. The developers naturally didn't forget about faithfully recreating weapons of the World War II period, which can be customized by addition of extra grip, different magazines, etc. Contrary to its predecessors, Airborne is powered by Unreal Engine 3 which translates into better graphics, animation, and facial expressions. The above is complemented by an extensive cooperative gameplay for up to 12 players.

Medal of Honor: Airborne is the next installment in the popular series which began in the late nineties of the twentieth century when it was present only on first PlayStation console. With this game, Electronic Arts introduces the series to the world of the modern consoles (PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360). There is also the PC version available. Initially, the plan was to release Medal of Honor: Airborne for PlayStation 2 and Xbox, but eventually it was abandoned.

Yet again we are taken to the turbulent period of World War II, and this time we take part in this conflict as a paratrooper. We assume the role of an American soldier, Boyd Travers of 82th Airborne Division. Each of the six campaigns begins on board of a transport plane, and we actively participate in the drop on command, we jump out of the machine, fall freely, open the parachute, and finally land. It is worth noting that it depends virtually only on our decision where we will start the exploration of the battlefield. All missions are located in the area of the European continent such as Sicily, Normandy, Holland, and Germany (years 1943-1945).

During the fight with the enemy soldiers, we have a range of authentic weapons at our disposal, and if a particular one is used often enough, there is no problem with improving it (e.g. Thompson submachine gun can be equipped with a roomier magazine reel, extra foregrip which improves accuracy when using continuous fire etc .). Medal of Honor: Airborne for Xbox is powered by the popular Unreal Engine 3. The developers also used advanced U-cap and E-cap systems to create realistic animations. The whole is complemented by the multiplayer mode for up to twelve players, offering, among others, cooperation mode.
