Medal of Honor has always been a series that pushes the envelope in terms of its quality, storyline, and gameplay. As of late, the quality of the Medal of Honor series has been lacking with 2007’s Medal of Honor: Airborne receiving average scores from many reviewers. It should be noted as well that Medal of Honor: Airborne has been the only Medal of Honor game to be released on this current generation of consoles.
The new Medal of Honor title from EA is said to have a new development team working on both the single-player and multiplayer portions (EALA and DICE respectively). Even though EALA was responsible for Medal of Honor: Airborne, EA says the team working on the title is completely new and hand selected for this project. As for DICE, if you played any of their Battlefield series, then you should know the multiplayer will be in very good hands.
The setting for Medal of Honor will finally depart from the WWII theater. Players will assume the role of modern day soldiers in Afghanistan with missions being inspired by real events. With all of these changes, it looks like this new Medal of Honor title will push the series into a much needed direction. As much as I love killing Nazis, I think we all can agree that we’re ready to move on to some modern day fighting.
