Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this first-person shooter game, the third in a popular series, aims to re-create battles during WWII. You can expect the character you play to shoot enemies in the head or throw grenades into a room full of Nazis, among other violent acts. But as a game that re-creates history, the violence feels less gratuitous.
Is It Any Good?
You can choose weapons to suit your objectives and unlock upgrades by performing impressive moves, including taking down four or five enemies at a time. This adds an interesting role-playing game-like element to the action. Keep in mind, however, that some weapons have serious recoil, which can make them harder to aim and fire repeatedly. Along with the eight- to 10-hour single-player campaign, Medal of Honor: Airborne offers a handful of multiplayer modes for up to 12 players over the Internet, including Team Deathmatch and Objective Airborne.
Medal of Honor: Airborne is an engrossing military action experience -- especially the second half of the story and team-based online modes -- that proves to be one of the best in the franchise to date.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
