Medal of Honor: Airborne (ps3): Experiencing the World War

By: Jacob Marshal

Invented in 1999, the Medal of Honor-Airborne is centered around the different aspects of the World War II. It is a shooter computer game, developed by EA Los Angeles, and was released worldwide in September 2007. Its PS III version is slated to get released in November 2007. Part of the Medal of Honor series, this one is the first from the series to focus on paratrooper activities.
The players are made to step in the shoes of Travis Boyd, who is a private in the airborne infantry. You get to be part of their first experimental deployments in the World War II. As the word 'Airborne' signifies, contrary to the other FPS games, here you don't just have to walk a path but can drop down from the sky as well.

A lot of freedom of action is given to the player in this version of the game. Most single player FPS games lack in this department, whereas this one gives the whole mission a freeform feeling. Most of the objectives can be performed in any order that you wish.
The game is being played in the European theater and the varied missions include insertions into Germany, Italy, Northern France and Netherlands. Unlike the earlier version which followed a linear game play style, this one gives you the complete freedom to start the game anywhere in the map. In consonance with the name, the beginning of the mission is marked with jumping out of the plane and parachuting down to the ground.

The players are free to decide where in the battlefield they would like to be dropped, and that flagged space is where the players will find their allies and supplies. Technically speaking, the game uses a modified Unreal 3 Engine, which was specifically designed for DirectX 9, PlayStation, 10 PCs and Xbox 360. Get this for your PlayStation and get a hand-on experience of the World War II.
