Medal Of Honor: Warfighter

PS3, Xbox 360, PC

Developer: EA

Rating out of 5: **

The pop, pop, pop of heavy machine-gun fire, the blinding glare of a freshly deployed flashbang; it can only mean one thing: the season of the formulaic first-person shooter is upon us.

By utilising the Frostbite 2 engine - as introduced by 2011's Battlefield 3 - Warfighter instantly incites comparison, but where BF3 was polished, here glaring faults are apparent as AI-driven friendlies fire aimlessly, hostilities turn a blind eye to the deaths of their nearby colleagues and reload times chug should you bite the bullet.

A shame, for Warfighter's visuals demand more than the mere average. - The Independent
