Rating summary: This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of elite soldiers tasked with combating terrorist threats around the world. Players complete military mission objectives set in modern-day international locations (e.g., Somalia, the Philippines). Players use pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, explosives, and melee attacks to kill human enemies in frenetic combat. Battles are highlighted by realistic gunfire, explosions, and screams of pain; enemies emit large splashes of blood when shot, and some attacks are accompanied by slow-motion effects. Additional blood stains are depicted around corpses and in the surrounding environment. One interrogation scene includes more intense portrayals of violence: a bound prisoner getting shot in the back of the head by a terrorist—splattering blood across a table. During another interactive sequence, players' character smashes an enemy's face against a car hood, resulting in similar blood effects. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” can be heard in the dialogue.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter is the direct sequel to Medal of Honor, which was a reboot to the classic series that came out in 2010. The upcoming title is being developed by Danger Close Games, the same studio that worked on the aforementioned reboot in addition to other Medal of Honor titles. Electronic Arts will be releasing Medal of Honor: Warfighter for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America on October 23.
