Ships Ahoy - Medal of Honor Airborne

EA announces that Medal of Honor Airborne for the PC and Xbox 360 is parachuting into stores in North America and the UK:

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., September 4, 2007 – Get ready to get airborne! Medal of Honor Airborne™, the latest installment from EA’s critically-acclaimed Medal of Honor™ franchise has shipped to store shelves across North America and the UK for the PC and Xbox 360™ videogame and entertainment system. The game will ship to retailers throughout Europe on September 7. Medal of Honor Airborne is set to redefine the series and will change the way shooters are played. Medal of Honor Airborne offers a dramatically different approach to FPS games with its unprecedented non-linear gameplay.

“In recreating the largest airdrops in history, Medal of Honor Airborne brings a dramatic change and opens up the FPS genre with the innovative airdrop experience," explained Patrick Gilmore, VP and Executive Producer at EALA. “Players have the ability to land anywhere on the battlefield, and choose their own tactics to achieve victory, delivering unprecedented variety and freedom to the combat experience.”

For the first time in a FPS game, players airdrop into combat from a C-47 and land anywhere in an open battlefield. The first step is everything and the player’s landing spot can dramatically change the course of battle. Conflict on the ground offers unprecedented tactical choice in vertical, open battle spaces with a wealth of attack routes and flanking opportunities.

The Medal of Honor Airborne development team continues to ensure that the ideals and integrity of the prestigious Congressional Medal of Honor are accurately reflected in the game. The producers sought counsel from numerous expert sources to make certain the game is historically accurate and as true to the WWII Airborne experience as possible.

Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino has scored the music for Medal of Honor Airborne. An esteemed composer for numerous film and TV projects such as “Lost”, “Alias,” M:i:III (2007), The Incredibles (2004), and most recently Ratatouille (2007), Giacchino has been repeatedly recognized for his contributions to theatrical composition and score. As the original composer and creator of the memorable theme music for the Medal of Honor series, he helped set the bar for using music to bring emotion into gaming. Giacchino’s extraordinary talents and musical sensibility have been utilized once again to bring a new dimension to the WWII FPS experience of Medal of Honor Airborne.

Developed at EA Los Angeles under the EA™ brand, Medal of Honor Airborne is rated ‘T’ for Teen by the ESRB, 16+ by PEGI, and 18+ by USK. The Xbox 360 version has a US MSRP of $59.99 and the PC version has a US MSRP of $49.99. Medal of Honor Airborne for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system will ship in November.

I liked the demo, a few nitpicks:

1. The enemy seemed to not care if i was 5 feet away from him in the next room shooting all his friends, he still stared out of the window into the street.
2. Seems like the hitscan is either off, or enemys take way too much damage before they drop.
3. ammo seemed scarce at best. It was better to keep stealing weapons from the enemy.. making the initial loadout "feature" rather useless.


i did enjoy the sounds and overall feel though. I will still pick it up.
god dammit.. how many games does that make?

Quake Wars (if I decide to)
TF2
UT3
CoD 4
Crysis
Gears of War (never played the console game)
World in Conflict (i was impressed)
Company of Heroes expansion
Universe at War --looks cool..not sure i'll have time for another RTS though.
Hellgate: ahaha fuck you and you're subscription shit. I hope the extra features get hacked and unlocked so i can download them.
