First Medal of Honor in-game footage

Monday 6 November 2006
This fresh shot of footage from Medal of Honor Airborne, the latest game in the WWII-obsessed shooter series, gives you a first glimpse of how you'll be starting every single mission - in the belly of a flak-attacked aircraft, shoulder to shoulder with your sweating buddies-in-arms, waiting for the order to leap out into action. Hit the movie tab above to see the solider's-eye-view video.

It's been all quiet on the Airborne front for a while, but this new movie manages to create the sort of high-intensity atmosphere we're looking for from the Medal of Honor sequel and its chain of airborne insertions. If the frontline warfare can deliver the same sort of quality thrills we'll be willing to forgive the series for its recent lacklustre battlefield performances. We'll have more on Medal of Honor Airborne soon.
