cant speak to to story mode of this game, but from what iv played in beta this game is a joke. Its not god awful but its not better than COD... and i hate COD lol. play battlefield myself... so if you own either of those games.. this game is less...if you dont own either go get bf3, dont  bother with this

Had a chance to play it and it's pretty bad tbh tries so hard to be like cod but feels so restricting when playing.

... and whenever the Ex-DICE guy (Creative Director, Kristoffer Bergqvist) says: "most authentic shooter out there", I want to slap him in the face = most authentic response. Just for lulz!

EA PR going with the "realism" meme was the worst decision, but they love the media attention they are getting - Medal of Honor, while having none - irony, anyone? Also, enemies glowing red (and through walls) t o t a l l y realistic! Join the Army! Bring your own XBox gamepad! Find out yourself! hahaha

Whenever another FPS is released i think that it will be different in the multyplayer mode ! But they are ALL THE SAME ! MOH Warfighter it is the same thing as MW3 Battlefield 3 etc ........ ! Nothing new ! Ever since MW 2 did some inovations to the multyplayer everybody stared doing that or at least something similar to that !

    I will stick to 3-rd person shooters !

 EA has a bad reputation.  They used to be a great DEV until The Sims 2.  All down hill from there.  Everytime I see EA involved in a title, I look else where to game.  Thier fault.  Maybe they finally got the real gamers back on thier payroll.  Second chances I can give as long as I see them making an effort.

How is Activision better?

Have you played Cod at all. The story and gameplay in both these games are very different. CoD is not racist. Price and the SAS are portrayed as merciless thugs(they kill Al Asad when their orders were to capture him alive and they laugh and quip as they kill enemies). Soap tortures a guy with a car battery in MW2, Resnov kills unarmed prisoners, Americans burn Japanese soldiers alive in World at War. The famous death from above mission paints those guys almost as badly as Spec Ops does to its protagonist(thy open fire on a civilian highway and almost kill civilians in cars and laugh when the cars are stolen by the SAS), the only difference is that it does not constantly hit us in the face with it.

Those games make it clear that war is an ugly thing from both sides. EA's Medal of Honor and Battlefield do not.

One of the loading screens in Warfighter says the fine for wreckless driving in Pakistan is Rs. 1000($18) thinking it is a small amount completely forgeting the fact that we do not make money in $ and Rs. 1000 is a good amount for Pakistanis. They criticize us for having the death penalty for cooperating with forign intellegence forgeting that the same penalty is there in almost every country including the US.

Then there is the gameplay. CoD 4 had so much stealth in the SAS missions that it could qualify as a stealth game if it had any more. The same is true for the later games.

 @moc5  How is Activision any better? Danger Close is making the game, not EA... So I'll give it a chance.
