Multiplayer Gameplay Review: Rent it first.,
This review is from: Medal of Honor: Warfighter - PS3 (Video Game)
Multiplay Game Play (30 hrs) review. ( Didn't touch Campaign).
Not your typical run N' gun game like other developers but if you want something more "real" this is the game for you. Why? In order to be good in this game you'll need, common sense, teamwork, and know how to be tactical. In my 30 hr experience I first was used to COD style games and ran around trying to be a ninja but that result only got me a Kill Death Ratio (KDR) of 1.00. Soon after I became accustomed to the MP game modes (Real Ops is the best, simliar to COD hardcode demolition mode) I began playing slower and checking my corners, ADS the corridors, grenading traffic areas, using the 2 buddy system, and overall just WAITING for the enemy to rashly charge a room without clearing it first. When I became a "smarter" player my KDR increase from 1:1 to 2-2.5:1 (hard to reach a 30-10 score).
Spawn camping isn't a big problem. Just be careful if you team spawn cause you might spawn right before your team mate dies (I've killed plenty of teams this way).
Sure some may say the maps are "linear" compared to COD and BF3, but honestly I have flanked the enemy from behind when they were busy at the front line and took out 5 of them(no one watching the rear on their part :P ).
My only gripes, should of included a medic guy (maybe I didn't lvl that far?), add vehicles, operable killstreaks (guided bombs, switchblade) can barely see the enemy through this camera everyone is thermal...
Should combine BF3 and this game for a much better experience. Vehicles and aircrafts, slower but smarter gameplay, medics, include MOH graphics and sounds, more destruction, list goes on.
Overall a great experience and my final advice is to rent it first and see if you like the game style.
Comment if you have any questions about Multiplayer game modes I tried to keep this review short. Thanks!

You don't need a medic class, you stay with your fireteam and heal/resupply off them. As for vehicles, I think they ruin games like this. But you can fly an Apache as the final killstreak.

Yes staying with your buddy will help but what about other guys on your team? When you see a friendly (not your partner) die in front of you and think " man I would like to revive you but I cant because even though were on the same side you're not my partner" that's just not real. And if game developers promote realism then players should be able heal+revive whoever.
As for vehicles, yes they do ruin the game sometimes when they are overly used and over powered but when it comes down to being a "realistic" game there should be at least one operable vehicle or even operable machine gun turret. More interaction is all I'm saying.

There's always the Blackhawk gunner, and they get killed pretty quick..which would probably be the case in a helicopter sitting in one spot for minutes in a firefight. As for the realism with a revive, I think we all know you can't just hit someone with paddles after they've been shot ten times or blown up. I'm really starting to like the way the mp gameplay is set up, just wish other people would "get it"
