I like the narrative - the serious tone of the characters. Gameplay is good too - if you enjoyed the previous MoH, then you know what to expect. For multiplayer - I like the 'buddy-system' mechanic.
I found the reviews of Warfighter to be bizarre (almost insulting). Sure there is nothing groundbreaking in terms of gunplay. But there is a touching, real story here. I say the word 'bizarre' because these same reviewers are the ones that complain when military shooters have no story, just run & gun. Put it this way - if there were no characters in the game, no story - all reviews would have said "this game could have used some personality, its just some nameless dudes running around shooting stuff." So it's a lose-lose, never happy no matter what. I think it was October's 'cool to hate' game. Every month has one.
I don't get bothered by much - I'm too old and plus I am a firm believer in 'to each their own, play whatever you want - as long as your having fun.' But the reviews seemed just strange.
As long as a sequel "feels" characteristic within its franchise/series (and I'm a fan), I'll most-likely like it, regardless of the reviews. Based on what I've seen from Warfighter, it seems like it contains elements that I like and don't like in campaigns.
I like campaigns in the vein of Bad Company (or similarly, Rainbow Six, Modern Warfare 1 & 2), where at one moment, you could be walking through a village without an enemy in sight, but suddenly get ambushed by a barrage of soldiers with rocket launchers, who appear or disappear randomly; there's an interaction/dynamism in those games, where you always feel like you have decisions to make in how you position yourself and take out the enemy. I also like how stealth missions are integrated in those games; if you screw up, you just adapt and take out the enemies who are chasing you. For those games, you can play through a section more than once, and it won't play out exactly the same way.
I don't like shooters that are heavily scripted or cinematic in the vein of the more recent Call of Duty games, where you're constantly in intense and elaborate, pre-staged firefights. It's like, "Take him out, Mason! (shoot) Run, Mason!"
Anyway, thanks for your input. I'll check it out.
P.S. I like Resident Evil 6.
