MEDAL OF HONOR

     Its been a while since the last MOH game and this one is getting lots of flack from the gaming community as  a dissapointing let down. However I will point out that the reviews are similar all around, the people giving it high ratings are saying the same thing as those giving it low ratings. First Ill tell you what their NOT saying, no one is saying that MOH is a bad game, they’re saying its too short and the Multiplayer is lacking. I recently played through MOH and its somewhat true. I put about 7hrs into the single player which actually wouldve been closer to 6hrs had I not replayed some certain levels either from dying or pure greatness. Getting back to what people are saying about the game. Its a shame everyone is hating like they are on this game, and honestly I think the majority of people are pissed for the same reason, IT ENDED, not because it was too short or the mechanics werent there or whatever, but simply because it ended. MOH was in a word EPIC. The game plays like a movie and has all the elements a good game should have. Story, Graphics, Visuals, Mechanics and over all gameplay were just excellent. From stealth to destroying an entire town as an arial gunner MOH delivers in a tasteful and gripping way. The story was a bit different in that it wasnt a scripted piece of drama like COD, instead it simply focus’s on you as a tier 1 operator. Instead of watching scripted events unfold infront of you while you pull a trigger it feels as if you were creating the game as you played. One major thing that helps do this, and something I loved, was that there are no cutscenes between levels. You litterally play through the whole game with nothing but check points and being briefed by your team as you move to your objective, and truly I think this is why it seemed so short for most people. Youll get just as  much game play out of it without the intermittent cutscenes, and in my honest opinion the game is better for it. MOH’s intensity and the way in which is sucks you in make it a masterpiece, that fact thats its done differently without all the BS is something that lots of people cant seem to appreciate which is sad cuz MOH is not only excellent to play through its also a tribute to those sacrificing their way of life so that we can have ours. MOH will suck you in and keep you hooked till the end (one reason people are beating it so quickly), if your on the fence about it borrow it or rent it, either way MOH should be checked out and is one of the few games deserving of your time and appreciation.

 

There really isnt much to say about the multi player, its not bad like some are saying but it also doesnt have that polished feel like BC2 or COD has, it is however still fun to play regardless, the scoring system is a bit different, you get 10 pts per kill plus 5 pts for specials like head shots and team actions. its simple in that you dont have a ton of customizations to unlock and look through while still having a sufficient ammount of content.

    The PS3 version also comes with Front Line which is a super awsome blast from the past 😀

    Gripping it is, I think what I like the most is its replay value, you finish the game and almost immediately want to start it all over again, and yes the ending was touching, I appreciated that on a fairly deep level.

    I agree about the multi, I think they were trying to keep the multiplayer realistic like the campaign, as much as they could anyway with the uncontrollable variables that come with multi. As far as EA goes, thats just classic EA. They arent a giant corp. for including what should be free for free ya know.

    MOH is a griping game and I like your take on why everyone feels it’s short. I have to agree I just didn’t want to stop playing it. Also the ending of the game isn’t a let down and actually choked me up alittle, most games just don’t envoke an emotional responce out of me unless its anger or frustartion for laggy~ness or douche~baggery in mupltiplay sessions.

    MOH’s multi is clean and devoid of to much flash but it is alot of fun and good mix of bfbc2 and cod..
    If dice would only patch the game like they did with bc2 to fix the lag issues then I would been really happy!.

    Now I am pissed at EA’s attempt at gouging us with “premium” content only a few months after release to try and combat Black ops. they did give us free content and also release a paid content dlc which maybe if it would have been free more people would be apt to play.

    all in all the single play is deffintly better than black ops (no mystry number “lost” moments here!) the multi is good but doesn’t have the varity that it’s competitor has even though what it does offer is really fun to play. even with all the freaking sniper bitches haha

    I felt the exact same way and held out for COD black ops instead, I only paid 35 for it on black friday but after playing it I would not at all have been disappointed by paying $60. Its an extremely well made game, and like the review says its not riddled with cutscene after cutscene, its seemless game play through to the end so it seems shorter but really youll get the same ammount of actual game play out of it as you would COD and most others.

    I have been very on the fence about this game. I was excited to see that they were going to reboot the franchise, but once the reviews started coming in stating that it was just an OK game I wasn’t willing to shell out the kind of money that a game costs now days.
