The graphics are old, with some improvements but they;re still acceptable.
The idea of parachuting is brilliant because you really can lend anywhere you want and take many paths and walk into many buildings. In the first levels even I went over the rooftops helping my guys on the ground.
So, that's amazingly innoveative. Having said that, the gamemaps are limited and they are not huge, so you cannot have tasks accross the entire city. It's usually only a couple of blocks of flats, but that's a start and a superb one.
There are some nice ideas with the new hard to kill soldiers, forgot their name. So attempts were made to be innovative. You also can find secret drop skills and the more you shoot you are awarded more ammo, better occuracy and I even got a scope for my gun.
The AI is a bit poor, because even if you sneak on the rooftops and look down at someone, they see you even though they're not looking up. Then again, you can walk up to the enemy from his back and kill him and he won't notice you.
Sometimes, they even walk past you without noticing you. This is on medium difficulty. I guess they're the same on the hardest difficulty but probably just take more damage. Nevertheless, I like this because it makes charging more fun and actually possible, otherwise you'd just end up dead every time.
You can't walk while aiming down the sight which is a bit weird, but it does help hiding and killing enemies when you are low on health.
The killing is also easier on medium ranges. I remember having to change between aiming down the sight and aiming normally all the time in previous medal of honor games. That's because it was really hard to kill an enemy just 8 meters away, but if he gets too close it's too confusing aiming down the sight so you have to change aiming and kill him by which time he will have got a few bullets or mellee hits at you.
The easier shooting is welcomed by me, as it does help progress through the game nicely and smoothly.
Apart from the graphics, the only other thingsI can complain about is the length. The game is too short. There are 6 levels I think and that's it. The missions submissions are over fairly quickly and I finished the game in a day or two and I;m a slow player.
You can't do quick saves which is shite, because usually you have to jump all over again and kill the enemy again and again, although once you reach a checkpoint the game is saved and you don;t have to re-do the target but you have to re-jump. But I guess in a way that's fair, because some achieve certain targets and reinforcements jump in to help with new ones. You play with one character so it is unrealistic for it to jump over and over again and kill the same enemies again and again even though the target they are protecting has been achieved.
After a certain checkpoint, you no longer have to jump which is a releif then. I'd still have prefered a longer game and quick saves enabled.
Having said it all, I still love the game and if I didn;t have other games to play right now, I;d play it again. Next time please make a longer game so that gun upgrades can actually be enjoyed and please don't do an unlimited unmber of enemies, it;s boring. Use a 100 enemies instead of 50 but still please do have a limit and don;t let them reappear out of nowhere.
Brilliant game, I love it.
My marking system is as follows:
10 - Absolute Legend
9 - Must Be Played
8 - Excellent and Worth Your Time
7 - Worth playing if you have nothing else to play
6 - worh playing if you have nothing to play and are incredbly bored and have not got absolutely anything else to do. (Barely playable/enjoyable).
I don't give marks 1-5 as if a game starts sucking I don't finish it, so I only review the games that are barely playable (6) to the absolutely amazingly incredible ones (10)
I will also probably keep my reviews short as I don't like discovering too much about the gameplay. I only like to give my quick opinion and get on with life.
Best Wishes to everyone
