Medal Of Honor: Warfighter

Medal of Honor: Warfighter is a first-person shooter video game developed by Danger Close Games and published by Electronic Arts. It is a direct sequel to 2010's series reboot Medal of Honor and the fourteenth installment in the Medal of Honor series. The title was officially announced on February 23, 2012, and was released in North America on October 23, 2012, in Australia on October 25, 2012, in Europe on October 26, 2012 and in Japan on November 15, 2012 on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

The game picks up where Medal of Honor left off from before as it reveals Tier 1 operator Preacher returning home to find his family torn apart from years of deployment. The campaign also reveals that the deadly explosive, PETN, had begun to appear across the globe.

While hopes were initially held high by EA, the game was a critical and commercial failure, unlike its mildly successful predecessor. According to aggregating review websites GameRankings and Metacritic, the game received a 55.93% and 53/100 for the Xbox 360 version, 55.40% and 55/100 for the PlayStation 3 version and 51.33% and 55/100 for the PC version.

Medal Of Honor: Warfighter Plot

The game opens at an undisclosed ship dock in Karachi, Pakistan Task Force Mako is the newly designated team consisting the previously known U.S. Navy SEALs of Mother, Tom "Preacher" Walker, and Voodoo, who are assigned by DEVGRU to sabotage a black market arms deal, involving an Al-Qaeda linked jihad movement. They successfully plant a charge on the truck that they intend to destroy. When they detonate the charge, a secondary explosion destroys the shipping docks and sinks a cargo ship, forcing the operatives to fight through the chaos and flee. They are later debriefed by Dusty, a U.S. Army Delta Force operative from the previous game, who is their field operations commander. With satellite video taken, the entire team finds out that the docks and the cargo ship was carrying PETN.

The SEALs determine that the shipment was due for the Philippines after a car chase through the streets of Karachi, and quickly follow the lead to Isabela City, the provincial capital of Basilan, in the southern part of the Philippine Islands. During the height of a typhoon-induced flood, members of the Abu Sayyaf Group kidnap several hostages for ransom. Mako, working with Philippine SOCOM forces led by General Barrera, attempts to identify the ringleaders and successfully recognize Marwan al-Khalifa conferring with another 'unknown' terrorist head. At that moment, they witness the other 'unknown' leader shooting one of their own men. Preacher requests permission from Barrera to inquire an ID check on the other leader as well as taking down Khalifa, but is refused. At that same time, Barrera orders his own sniper specialist and team leader, "Tiger 12" to take out Khalifa and deploys the army's special Light Reaction Battalion to begin the hostage rescue. Just as the operation begins, the terrorists and hostages hastily escape. Mother and Preacher join up with Tiger 12 and the rest of the special forces, tracking the hostages and fighting their way to the capitol building. After a failed door breach resulting in some casualties, Barrera orders Tiger 12 and the others to withdraw, intending to negotiate with the terrorists. Tiger 12, refusing to concur, asks the SEALs for an alternative plan that defies the general's orders, wherein the joint forces manage to liberate the hostages. During the extraction, there are three more casualties, including Tiger 12. Links with the Abu Sayyaf, the PETN, and a man known as "the Cleric" are then exposed. The aftermath of Mako's operation results in Mother and Preacher receiving pending honorable discharges from the Navy, while Voodoo is appointed leader for Mako, and operative "Stump" serving alongside him.

At this point, Mako has their manpower replaced by Dingo and Tick. The four remaining operatives were assigned with Task Force Grizzly to Mogadishu, Somalia, curtailing piracy in the area. Shortly after the operation, Mako is assigned to the USS Bainbridge, where a stand off takes place with Somali pirates and the U.S Navy involving the hostage situation with a U.S. captain just off the Somali coast.

Preacher, whose marriage has been failing due to the nature of his job and the frequency of his deployments, immediately seizes the opportunity to attempt to repair his relationship with his wife, Lena, and daughter, Bella. He travels to Madrid, Spain, where his wife has taken their daughter to live with her parents. His wife agrees to meet with him, but while Preacher is waiting for her train to arrive, he sees Khalifa as a suicide bomber inside one of the moving trains before the bomb is detonated. The blast destroys the train, killing a large number of civilians and putting Preacher in a coma. When Preacher regains consciousness, he finds Mother in his room, revealing the connections of the PETN with their recent operations and various bomb attacks throughout Europe. Mother also identifies the 'unknown' head they observed in the Philippines as Sad al-Din. Lena and Bella arrive at the hospital, having missed their train earlier and sparing their lives in the process. Although Preacher is initially resistant to returning to duty, Lena eventually persuades him to go back.

After full recovery, Mother and Preacher are assigned to the Central Intelligence Agency's Task Force Blackbird. Taking place after the previous game's ending, both SEAL operatives travel to Pakistan. With the aid of undercover operative Ajab, they covertly track down another jihad subject named Faraz, to investigate Pakistani ties to the terrorists and the PETN. Shortly after being apprehended, Faraz reveals the PETN stored at a hidden area in Yemen and exposes a Saudi Arabian banker named Hassan, who has strong terrorist connections and knowledge of the explosive. When preparing for extraction, the prisoner has been killed by a terrorist sniper, forcing Blackbird's hasty departure in order to avoid the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence. Immediately after tracking the location in Yemen, Mako is ordered to raid the facility housing large amounts of PETN. After the mission, Voodoo and the team radio in that only half of the PETN is stored in the discovered training facility.

Dusty then assigns Blackbird to the city of Dubai, and abduct Hassan for interrogation. After Mother and Preacher take him captive, Sad al-Din and his men chase them into a sandstorm that engulfs the city. The SEALs manage to upload the laptop's data to Dusty before being intercepted and captured. Dusty is able to determine from the contents of the hard drive that the PETN came from Sarajevo, where a weapons dealer named Stovan Bosic, whom Dusty used to work with, was selling it. Mako links up with a team of Polish GROM led by Specialist Greko at the Bosnian capital. The joint forces track down the source of the PETN to a local hockey rink and capturing Bosic. The arms dealer revealed 2 ships containing the PETN had just left Dubai and after tracking the vessels, Mako is sent to intercept one of two cargo ships headed for Karachi, as the other is already being impounded by NATO forces in Croatia.

Meanwhile, Preacher and Mother are interrogated by Sad al-Din aboard the cargo freighter headed for Karachi. Mother is executed by Sad al Din when he refuses to give up his allies. As Mako arrives and assaults the ship, Preacher manages to escape captivity and kills most of Sad al-Din's security while finding his way to the ship's bridge. He finally corners Sad al-Din and nearly beats him to death in retaliation for Mother's death, before allowing the SEALs to arrest the terrorist. With Sad al-Din in custody, the SEALs are able to identify Hassan as The Cleric, serving as the leader for his own jihad network and the location of his compound in Pakistan.

Preacher and Dusty personally rejoin Mako to raid Hassan's Pakistani compound. During the assault, Voodoo and Preacher are able to locate Hassan and kill him when he attempts to detonate his bomb-laden vest. Preacher returns home, where the SEALs and their families attend Mother's funeral. As Mother is laid to rest, Preacher and Lena decide to reconcile their differences and improve their marriage. In the final scene, Preacher's cell phone rings while his family is eating out in a restaurant, where Preacher hesitates on returning to duty, leaving the game in a cliffhanger.

Reception
Reviews for Warfighter have been mixed to negative, with most reviews criticizing the game for being rushed, very buggy (even after the day one patch), having poor AI and having no identity of its own. Critics praised its visuals and the Frostbite 2 engine, highlighting it as being "one the most beautiful games using the Frostbite 2 engine since Battlefield 3", but at the same time criticized the texture issues on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Aggregating review websites GameRankings and Metacritic gave the Xbox 360 version 55.93% and 53/100, the PlayStation 3 version 55.40% and 55/100 and the PC version 51.33% and 55/100.

Metro said "Warfighter is one of the worst video games we have ever played" and gave the game a 4/10. Eurogamer gave it 5/10, Destructoid and Videogamer.com both also gave the game a 5/10. The Financial Post gave the game a 5.5/10 saying that the game was "Hard to recommend" GameThirst awarded the game 6/10 saying "There's no need to buy Warfighter, rent it instead" However, Daily Mail gave the game a 4 out of 5 stars, praising the Fireteam modes and "well thought-out vehicle sections and set pieces" Joystiq.com scored the game 2/5 saying "The concept behind Warfighter is sound ... but the execution leaves a lot to be desired." StuffTV.com scored the game a 3/5 saying "Warfighter’s single-player mode drops the ball so badly that it threatens to overshadow the clever buddy system ...". The Huffington Post scored the game a 2/5. Kotaku.com reviewed the game poorly saying: "It's so brazenly unremarkable, its storytelling so amateurish, its action so rote, that it feels like a master class in middling modern warfare." and "Medal of Honor Warfighter is slipshod, uninspired, unpolished, and unfun." Game Informer gave the game a 5/10 saying "this once-loved series may be dangerously close to being put in a casket." GameSpot gave the game a 6/10 noting that the linear gameplay failed to add up to the tension, there is too much ammo and enemies show up in predictable places making the game too easy, poor storytelling, confined maps, and bugs like showing up in invisible places. Despite the bad reviews, in October 27 the game climbed to the number one spot in UK sales.

Electronic Arts responded to the largely negative criticism saying that the launch "is coming in below our expectations." EA Labels president, Frank Gibeau said, "We’re disappointed with the critical reception. Internal testing and mock reviews indicated that the game is better than the score we have right now. We believe it is. However, we are seeing folks out there that just don’t like the game." Gibeau went on to say that EA is "not happy" with how the game has been received by the critics.
