Critic Reviews for Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond
Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond is a weird game in that it feels like it should have came out several years before it actually arrived. It's stuck in time. It's easy to appreciate the budget that went into making it look the way it does, and I hope Respawn gives it another go; but it needed so much more than a shiny veneer to survive in this current VR climate.
Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond offers a fun and lengthy single player campaign with lots of replayability alongside a full featured suite of multiplayer modes. I did, however, find the general tone to be somewhat at odds with the respectful presentation, lacking a connection with real history and feeling more like a Wolfenstein game at times. There are also some issues still to be patched, which Respawn are working on, and the multiplayer lacks players right now. Overall, this is a tour of duty that is rewarding but not essential.
Above and Beyond has its share of problems, like a campaign that feels like a bunch of disjointed scenes... but when it hits the right key, offers intense and unforgetable moments. Add the memorable content of the Gallery and fun multiplayer modes, and you've got a game that isn't perfect, that will be enjoyed by IIWW games lovers.

I feel that when it comes to everything Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond has to offer, Respawn Entertainment has gone out of their way to show us that not only does the Medal of Honor franchise still have meaningful life left in it, but there are things this game does that other games can look to as a benchmark of how to deliver a fully fleshed-out and visceral action VR experience.
