We thought that EA's big focus for Medal of Honor was the fact you get to play as a Tier 1 operative - the ultimate special forces team. Imagine our surprise then, when the latest trailer instead deals with the emotional side of war - a man leaving an answer phone message for his loved ones at home while he's on duty in the badlands of Afghanistan.
The really odd thing is bar the odd 15 seconds of 'pay-off' at the end of the trailer, there's zero shooting action. It's all moody, pensive rangers preparing to disembark a helicopter in a sun bleached desert. And no obvious signs of the gruff looking ZZ Top-a-like from the box art. Interesting EA. Very interesting. And slightly weird.
