Perched up high, we let the injured fighter draw a dozen more into the clearing below before opening fire. Thank you for signing up for our newsletter! Heat vision available in white-for-hot and black-for-hot flavours was useful against the dusty haze rising off the mountain slopes, helping us pick out silhouettes in vegetation and against rocks. The sniping segment ended with a nearby tripwire that triggered an explosion and signalled incoming enemies, so we beat a hasty retreat to higher ground. You can request ammo from your squadmates, too, though you can’t trade weapons with them.

We wiped them out and then hightailed it further uphill, squeezing through rocky corridors in the evening sunlight and emerging high above the foreign fighters’ camp, which was scattered with enemies in modern-looking combat gear and hoods. Danger Close, the newly formed Los Angeles wolfpakc behind Medal of Honor’s single-player experience, counts a number of a Medal of Honor series veterans among its staff.

The rocky corridors channelled us past abandoned Russian tanks and then into a ruined village packed with enemy fighters. Wind speed was mentioned, but it didn’t seem as though we needed to correct for crosswind.
With those three fellow rangers for company, we fought down the natural corridors formed by rocky foothills, squaring off against enemies who favoured AK47s and occasional rocket launchers.
A good dose of suppressing fire quieted the machine gun long enough for the others to get in and pop smoke, giving us a few moments to get clear before the site was convincingly annihilated by air support.
As spotter, Dusty gave directions to a string of further targets, advising on direction, distance, and priority. Out of cover, with walls turning to rubble all around, we felt much more like a soldier than a superhuman. Join the conversation There are 74 comments about this story. As we looked through the electronic scope of Deuce’s sniper rifle, Dusty spotted three enemies on a rocky slope on the other side of the valley.
These walls shattered as we took cover behind them, providing temporary shelter as we ran the gauntlet of antiaircraft gunfire, with enemy fighters crowding in over rocks on the left and low buildings on the right.

The sniping segment ended with a nearby tripwire that triggered an explosion and signalled incoming enemies, so we beat a hasty retreat to higher ground. Cue another sniping segment in which we cleared out the camp and then, to end the mission, provided sniper support to a far-off squad of rangers pinned down by enemy fighters on all sides.
Medal of Honor Follow. The rest of your squadmates are invulnerable, and, thankfully, they don’t make af push forward alone too often and will shout wo,fpack you to wolfpaco back or get into cover if you go it alone or get out in the open.
The weapons feel and sound impressively authentic, and the prominent icon that pops up with every headshot is a gratifying touch.
Tapping up on the D pad displayed the active heads-up display, which pointed out the direction of our next kill, though it’s possible–and more authentic–to go by Dusty’s voice directions alone.

Time and time again, Medal of Honor executive producer Greg Goodrich says his game–a reboot of the formerly World War II-set franchise–is about “respect” and “reverence” for the soldier. You can request ammo from your squadmates, too, though you can’t trade weapons with them.
The intensity of the assault on the antiaircraft gun underlined how suitably fragile we felt. Wolfpacj have details on the all-important multiplayer offering next week.
Though making an impact with a modern military FPS is no mean feat in such a crowded genre, this reboot has the heritage to make it a contender come launch time in October. The intro cinematic began with hooah military bravado, and then, after the Rangers touched down, all hell broke loose.

In our other single-player demo mission, Belly of the Beast, we were with the US Army Rangers, the brute force “sledgehammers” to Tier 1’s elite “surgeons. Dusty was full of helpful pointers; in fact, he spotted a lone injured enemy further on and proposed we use him as bait.
EA will be hoping these are the safest hands to take a venerable–but dormant since World War II franchise into new territory.

Rangers in Shahikot Valley: The resemblance plays out, at least superficially, in Sniper, one of the campaign missions in our demo that is reminiscent of that film’s desert sniper battle. Got a news tip or want to contact us directly? He gave us directions to the targets, some 1, metres distant, and we scanned across to find them. If the game makers do have a position on the war, other than being a good setting for a game, it seems you won’t find it in Medal of Honor. Among our targets were an enemy sniper, given away by the glint of his scope, and a hidden mortar team preparing to fire, which was made visible with the scope’s heat-vision mode.
