[Rating:7/10]Medal of Honor has recieved attention all over the word from both hardcore gamers, softcore gamers, and non-gamers. The main reason was due to the Taliban in the multiplayer, which was only right to remove the name as it disrepects those serving for our countries and those who have sadly had their lives lost. But let’s not go into that. If you didn’t know, the game is actually set right after the aftermath of the 9/11. Neptune, a group of “United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group”, set off to meet Tariq, an Afghan informant. The group, consisting of Mother, Preacher, Voodoo and the character you play with this squad, Rabbit, are ambushed, despite the fact Tariq telling them it was safe to enter. They find out it was actually a set-up, when they are attacked by Chechen men, and that Tariq has actually been taken hostage. Once the squad regroup, after being seperated after the ambush, they eventually find Tariq, who tells them that the Taliban and Al-Qaeda have a massive force of men ready to fight in Shai-i-kot. (Which in reality, became the Battle of Shai-i-Kot) The story could have been better, as its difficult to understand at first, and most people have to read up to find out what the heck they just played. The campaign is extremely short, lasting about 5-6 hours on the two easiest difficulties and 7-8 hours on Hard. Normally, we always say that depending on what difficulty you play the game, depends on the game time, but this was just too short. Not to mention, half the time, you had no idea where to shoot, as you might experience in one or two of the missions.
