Unlike previous games in the series that employed a linear style of gameplay in its single-player mode, in which the start point and direction is already laid out, Airborne employs a more nonlinear gameplay style in both modes, in that players can start their game anywhere in the map that they land in and complete the majority of a mission's objectives in any order.[5] The game has received more favorable reviews for the PC and PlayStation 3 versions,[6] than its Xbox 360 version. While the game was planned to have versions made for PlayStation 2, Wii, and Xbox, these were later cancelled,[7] with the first two consoles having Medal of Honor: Vanguard as an exclusive title between them instead.
