Vanguard has some new recruits too. The much-hyped parachuting parts of the game are just that - hype. While these segments arefun,they feel short and tacked on.You can't land just anywhere, as we're promised you'll be able toin Medal of Honor: Airborne.When dropping in, you can land in only one small area, although you can aim for the plumes of green smoke to gain “weapon upgrades'" like a scope attachment for your M1 or a barrel clip for the Thompson. While there is nothing more fun than feeling like Al Capone gunning down Nazis with a Tommy gun, there could have been more done here, and the fact that you lose them when you load the next section of a campaign just plain sucks.
