CVG:It's easy to hate Medal of Honor: Warfighter, EA's 'ultra-authentic' terrorist-hunter starring a global assortment of Tier 1 operators decked in gear so authentic they're hard to tell apart.
LOL we all need a laugh after playing turd especially me.
I think one of the reasons why COD sells is because its not realistic, to much realism makes a game boring and that is where EA screwed up with MOH. Instead of making MOH an ultra realistic military FPS they should have taken it the other way and made it unrealistic and since EA already has a realistic FPS called Battle Field this could have been they're chance to try something new with MOH.
They did that, and I think thats what killed it for me. The first game had an "authentic" feel to it because it had military things, but over exaggerated certain things so it wasn't boring. Things like bigger explosions or whatever, but it was still military. Warfighter took that away. The first level the entire place is blowing up around you and then you go fight a helicopter thats ten feet away from you....nothing "realistic" about that. Then the online is toned down and really easy. It has a slight team focus, but thats about it.
They shouldn't dumb it down. It has been argued and has shown to do nothing but hurt a franchise. Many fps games, new and well established, the new ones were dispose able and the fans of established franchises just feel burned because of a dev or publisher wanting a quick and easy buck. Look at resistance 2 and killzone 3. Far from the success of their other entries and forgettable as they were stripped of what made them memorable and were dumbed down. There are many more examples if you care to look. It is not just the fault of developers and publishers, but the fault of gamers unwilling to get out of their comfort zones, learn the complexities of a game and accept something for what it is and that's just one genre. Same thing with RPGs. Its worrying when someone wants to change something into something it isn't because that's what Warfighter and the above games are being criticised for. They weren't broken and needed fixing. At least fighting games are getting away from this casual nonsense.
so the bashing commences! conspiracy? is the media killing the game with reviews because EA dared not to allow pre-launch judgement? notice how the gaming journo' outlets became masters of life and death of games - judging them and deciding whether a game will sell or not, even before it's available. EA wanted the game to launch first (it's like an insurrection against the media) and got beaten down to the ground
i bought it before reviews were out. which im glad i did cause i enjoy it. if i bought in to the review scores i might not have even tried it.
