Warfighter est sans conteste d’une réalisation supérieure, on sent un réel travail et le soin tout particulier apporté aux cinématiques, ce qui reste bien rare dans ce genre de titres. La technique dans le jeu est tout bonnement sublime à l’écran et les différents rebondissements de l’intrigue parfois inspirée de faits réels ainsi que la dynamique des éléments extérieurs vous mettront en immersion totale dans une intrigue sur fond de terrorisme international. L’expérience multijoueurs trouve son identité et reste très agréable à jouer, notamment grâce au système d’escouade formé de deux joueurs, vous ne serez jamais trop désavantagé et les nombreux modes de jeu proposés sont appuyés par des terrains d’affrontement propices aux batailles et qui permettent de toujours renouveler votre façon d’aborder un coin de la carte.

Danger Close versucht sich im zweiten Versuch, eine würdige Alternative zu Call of Duty zu bieten. Doch weder im Einzel- noch im Mehrspielermodus geht dieser Plan auf. So unwichtig die Kampagne für viele Spieler auch sein mag, sie ist nun mal Teil des Spiels und wenn ein Hersteller im Vorfeld sagt, man wolle damit ein höchst authentisches Erlebnis schaffen, dann möchte man das auch bitte so präsentiert bekommen. Klappt nur leider nicht – was umso mehr enttäuscht, denn ein Ansatz wäre ja da, den Zwiespalt von „Preacher“, der Hauptfigur, herauszuarbeiten. Aber der höchst undurchsichtige Plot macht das zunichte, zu viel schmalziger Pathos bleibt am Ende übrig. Schauplatzwechsel Mehrspielermodus – hier machen die Gefechte an sich Spaß, das Buddy-System sorgt für eine gehörige Portion Teamplay im Zweierverbund im Spielgeschehen – aber leider stören hier zu vielen vorhandenen Bugs den Spielspaß.

Warfighter ist handwerklich gut gemacht, wurde aufwändig in Szene gesetzt und sieht stellenweise zum Anbeißen gut aus. Allerdings habe ich laufend das Gefühl, das ganze Spektakel schon in gefühlt drei Dutzend anderen Shootern erlebt zu haben – und zwar frischer und streckenweise sogar besser. Wenn wir zudem schon Call of Duty als Beispiel für eine besser erzählte Geschichte hinstellen müssen, dann muss wirklich etwas schief gelaufen sein. Noch dazu muss sich Danger Close für Medal of Honor endlich konsequent um Alleinstellungsmerkmale abseits dämlicher Realismus-Versprechen bemühen, über die ich angesichts der unendlichen Munitionsvorräte eh nur müde grinsen kann. Preachers Ehekrise ist da ja ein Anfang, aber dann sollen die Entwickler das Thema bitte auch konsequent durchziehen. Auch Militär-Shooter-Entwickler brauchen den Mut, Dinge neu oder anders zu machen – siehe Spec Ops: The Line. So ist Warfighter zwar ein unterhaltsamer Militär-Shooter. Aber eben nur einer von vielen.

Overall, Medal of Honor: Warfighter is an excessively average game. In every way, it embodies the idea of “stereotypic”. If you look at the back of the box and imagine what this game will be like, you’ll probably be pretty spot on. It’s not going to surprise you in any way, and I don’t think it will really hook you either. It’s simply just a very short, very bland, and exceedingly average shooter.

Upon completing Medal of Honor: Warfighter's campaign, you are met with a heartfelt dedication impressing upon you the heroism of the men in uniform the game depicts. The attempt at sincere emotion is commendable--but it rings hollow, coming as it does at the end of a bog-standard military shooter that celebrates the killing of hundreds. The battlefield fantasy itself offers a few surprises, but they're crowded out of your psyche by the indifferent hours of shooting and military chatter that surround them.

Погнавшись сломя голову за лидером рынка, бесталанные продюсеры Medal of Honor не придумали ничего лучше, чем стащить у соперников ворох избитых штампов. Но в Modern Warfare и Black Ops, при всей их безмозглости, растет сочная, веселая «клюква». А у Warfighter за душой — только постная рожа.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter feels like it is trying too hard to get a slice of the lucrative CoD pie, but the package never quite manages to get up to snuff. It is average in almost every department, and if you choose to play without the day one patch and graphics install it devolves into a buggy broken mess, though even with the optimum requirements it fails to start up to its rivals. Man down.

Nu îi prevăd lui Warfighter o carieră foarte longevivă. Asta deoarece pentru jucătorii cu gândiri mai tactice şi imaginaţii mai bogate există mereu Battlefield 3, iar pentru cine e înclinat spre arcade şi reflexe, Black Ops 2 preia ştafeta de la Modern Warfare 3. Ceea ce nu lasă foarte mult loc pentru compromisul care e Medal of Honor.

Il faut bien reconnaître que Medal of Honor : Warfighter nous a vraiment surpris. On ne s'attendait peut-être pas à découvrir le jeu de l'année mais on pensait tout de même trouver un divertissement relativement efficace. Finalement, on a droit à un solo rachitique, à un multijoueur sans intérêt et à une ribambelle de bugs qui finiront certainement par avoir raison de votre patience. Bref, la saison des FPS commence plutôt mal cette année...

Medal of Honor: Warfighter feels unpolished. It's a slew of great ideas mashed together in a way that doesn't give any of them time to truly shine, rushed out to make a deadline that didn't do it any favors. While there's enjoyment to be had here, it is fleeting and often devolves rapidly into frustration and boredom. I feel bad saying that, because the folks at Danger Close seemed intensely passionate about their work and there's simply so much potential in here, but it clearly needed more time if it was to develop into anything truly unique and compelling. Instead, it seems as though a bunch of good-to-excellent parts were put together and the result is significantly less than one would expect their sum to be.

Medal of Honor Warfighter était assez attendu de par sa propension à miser sur le réalisme, force est de constater que le contrat est loin d'être rempli malgré quelques belles promesses. La mise en scène s'avère époustouflante en terme de spectacle, mais pour le réalisme, on repassera. Un gameplay qui tente d'aller dans cette voie en étant trop inégal, un scénario un peu confus ou pas assez exploité et une durée de vie très très limite auront tôt fait de nous décourager. Néanmoins, tout n'est pas à jeter et il manque juste un gros peaufinage pour que le prochain opus fasse mouche, après Battlefield 4 peut être ?

To play Medal of Honor Warfighter's single-player campaign is to become Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, only instead of knowing exactly where Ned Ryerson will be and what he'll say every single day for eternity ("I did the whistling belly button trick at the high school talent show. Bing!") I knew every exploding twist and slow-motion turn the levels were going to make before they actually made it. Warfighter isn't a bad modern military shooter, it's just that there's very little of its seven hours of terrorist-shooting that doesn't make me feel like I've played it before.

The uninspired single-player campaign, uneven multiplayer execution, and rampant presence of glitches undermine Medal of Honor: Warfighter’s efforts to join the Tier 1 of military shooters. If Danger Close keeps executing this poorly, this once-loved series may be dangerously close to being put in a casket.

I'd like to see Danger Close take a real, genuine crack at the thoughtful war shooter they clearly want to make, because its repeated attempts at a weak Call of Duty knock-off isn't going to win over hearts and minds. Medal of Honor: Warfighter never stood a chance, and its deep schism between intended tone and actual design feels even more comically tragic now than it did with the original reboot two years ago. This is a bland, buggy and often boring title, one that belies the intentions of its developers and leaves the much-maligned modern shooter looking worse as a result.

There's been a backlash brewing for some time against the bombastic direction military shooters have taken, but it would be wrong to assume that Medal of Honor: Warfighter is simply the game unlucky enough to bear its brunt. The truth is far simpler and more depressing: it's just not that good.

Years from now, when we look back at this console generation, Medal of Honor: Warfighter will be remembered as the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back -- if it's remembered at all. It's the definition of a lazy cash-grab that doesn't try to do anything but emulate what came before it and it does so badly. There is fun to be had here, but it's nothing you can't find for a third of the price elsewhere.

As you gain ranks, you'll unlock everything from scopes and stocks to magazines and muzzles, but too few of the upgrades have an appreciable impact on performance, and the clunky interface makes experimenting with different parts a pain. The real threat to Warfighter's longevity, though, is how its multiplayer maps feel like patchworks of arbitrary buildings and debris instead of bona fide real-world strongholds. Without a palpable sense of place, these battlegrounds never give you enough reason to choose this particular mix of gunmetal and grit over any other. Combined with a weak campaign, that makes the new Medal of Honor more of a casualty than a killer in a marketplace already crowded with full-featured crowd-pleasers.

If you don't have a complete plan of attack, the mission will result in a critical failure. Warfighter isn't a total failure, but it's certainly not up to the standards of the international Tier 1 Operators it clings to.

Xbox 360HonestGamers
In the end, Medal of Honor: Warfighter simply doesn’t feel like a product that was ready to ship. There are some good ideas here, and I think that with more time a team of capable developers--and I include the folks at Danger Close in that number--would possibly have allowed the concept to morph into a more worthwhile game. As-is, the title feels like a copy-paste job gone bad. You could certainly do worse than to give it a shot, but you also have enough superior options right now that your time is better spent elsewhere.

Xbox 360ActionTrip
After all that's said and done, Medal of Honor: Warfighter is nothing more than a broken action game that falls way behind other shooters. With the impending release of Black Ops 2, gamers are bound to forget this title within months, if not weeks. Instead of expanding on a franchise and improving it, EA have created a glitchy and disappointing addition to its popular series, offering dreary characters, a boring plot and most of all predictably mediocre gameplay.

PlayStation 3BlogCritics Magazine
Medal of Honor: Warfighter is so deeply flawed that I have a hard time recommending it to anyone. The more subtle narrative and surprising variety of gameplay in the single player is a nice change of pace, but half of it is broken. The multiplayer, despite new wrinkles, isn’t enough to win many converts. The realistic sound and feedback of the weapons is also commendable, but they’re not enough to carry the game. Truthfully, more than anything else, Warfighter makes me more excited to see what the new Battlefield has to offer. This genre is too crowded to tolerate the sub-par effort EA has released in Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

Gorgeous visuals and high production values can only carry a poor experience so far. Expect to spend a lot of time waiting, watching, and wondering why you’re bothering to play at all during Medal of Honor Warfighter’s disappointing, confusing campaign. At its core, Warfighter is a functional shooter built on trite design ideas, but significant technical problems knock it below the realm of mediocrity. This isn’t just an upsetting sequel or me-too military shooter – Warfighter is disrespectful of your time and unwilling or unable to adapt to what’s been done better elsewhere.

War games can do dumb, and I'm OK with that. But dressing dumb up in the cloak of authenticity seems a dangerous line to cross. When you pretend to be saying something about ongoing real-world wars, but present a conflict of extremes with all the substance of air, the thought that anyone might take Warfighter seriously becomes a very queasy one. What it comes down to is an assumption that its audience is there to be fooled, and doesn't care anyway. That's what Warfighter feels like – a piece of propaganda.

It’s fitting that so much of Medal of Honor Warfighter’s script is composed of military acronyms, given that the entire game is shorthand for designs and concepts that have been done in other, overwhelmingly better military shooters. Warfighter is uninspired, underdeveloped, and completely profligate with the solemn potential of its core concept.

Shooting in Warfighter is excellent, and the presentation is great, but it doesn't stop the game from being broken literally, and thematically.

Xbox 360Joystiq
There are some worthwhile components in Medal of Honor: Warfighter, but it feels cobbled together, a design-by-committee approximation of "AAA military shooter." The concept behind Warfighter is sound – particularly its attempt to personalize the internal conflict of a soldier – but the execution leaves a lot to be desired.

Medal of honor-serien slår snart sista spiken i sin egen kista. Åtminstone om utvecklarna fortsätter på samma fiaskolinje. Medan det förra spelet cyniskt försökte sticka ut genom att det utspelade sig under det pågående Afghanistan-kriget, är “Warfighter” en desperat och slarvig ansats att hänga kvar i genren.

While another six months in development wouldn’t have removed the lingering bad taste from one of the more tasteless marketing campaigns in recent memory – including tie-ins with the real-world manufacturers who make the in-game ordnance, and a branded tomahawk that was later removed from sale – it would have done much to help smooth out the kinks in a game where at least the multiplayer has genuine potential. Instead, what’s shipped is rushed, uninspired and cynical. Activision and Treyarch have questions of their own to answer in a few short weeks – chiefly whether a near-future setting will breathe life into a series many feel has grown stagnant – but EA and Danger Close have set them a very low bar indeed.
