I really wish EA would get their act together with MoH. I remember having such a wonderful time playing Allied Assault years ago...

Frontline and PS One Classics for me. It's like watching a one legged dog dig it's own grave now......

Oohh Allied Assault is one of the BEST FPS I've ever

Long life MOHAA.

This better be a lesson to bf4 also if they release it next year...

To me Allied Assault was/is the best... EVER (of the entire MOH series).

Medal of Honor was great in the PSOne days, and Medal of Honor: Frontline is a classic, but I also loved Medal of Honor: Airborne. Seeing as how nobody is really making WW2 shooters anymore, I really think EA should capitalize on that niche part of the market. They need to put a seriously large budget behind the next game, otherwise they shoulnd't even bother.

Stupid EA when will you learn stop going after the 12 year olds at COD and go back to making MOH awesome.
DeadlyFire  +   788d ago
Its better to remember the good days and let MoH die I believe. EA can't do anything with it. Scrap MoH and build sequels off the title BLACK! That would work out much better.

So you would rather have them ruin another good game, just let Black be a good memory
bubblebeam  +   788d ago
Black has not aged well at all. Trust me. It was a great game graphically, but let down in the game-play and story department.

I'd rather they just made a new IP, as Black didn't really have a memorable plot and characters. It was a good game last gen, and that's all.

If I worked at EA and read that statement, I'd be really depressed.
TimNunes  +   788d ago
From the way that things have gone, I highly doubt that the guys at EA are really looking at consumer opinions on the matter...

I honestly thought the MOH 2010 outings multiplayer was a whole lot of fun. But then again Dice made the MP for MOH that year. I thought Warfighter had a pretty good campaign but awful Multiplayer.
mcstorm  +   788d ago
Ive not played this game but I had the last MoH and I really enjoyed it. The game was not the best game I have ever played but it was a fun game and MP was fun to.

I tried the beta of this game and could not get into it and did not bother picking this game up.

I think EA should drop MoH again until later on next gen and look at building on the BF name and release this game every 2 years with DLC over the 2 years to keep the game going.

How was releasing a rushed product ever going to pull gamers from COD. All they've done is further hurt their IP while bolstering Activision.

Should of bite the bullet, delayed it and released a better product. Sure they might of been left in CODs wake but at least they wouldn't drive away the MoH fans they already have.
dalibor  +   788d ago
It would be nice to see developers do this. I have no idea what made them think "hey lets release an unfinished game so we can take that slice of pie from Cod". What will happen is you will lose people that do in do fact like your IP. So many rushed games have been released it's kind of ridiculous. Maybe just maybe developers now a days really don't like to game themselves. I wish there was a game studio out here in Ohio I would want to join, I would love to be able to create a game because I like to game myself and have been for a long time now

It's the publishers rushing the games, not the developers.
Optical_Matrix  +   788d ago
Not sure why this game was even made. Between the release of Halo 4 and Black Ops 2, the game was just irrelevant to the market. Had no real identity of it's own and just screamed "Mandatory holiday season FPS release".

EA should have saved the money for the impending Battlefield 4 hype train next year.
Ducky  +   788d ago
Not only is there those two games you mentioned, but EA's own BF3 is still in the running because of two upcoming DLCs.

It doesn't seem like the learned anything from MoH2010.
FarCryLover182  +   788d ago
Sounds like the MoH series is dead. They should reboot it again and make it a WW2 game and set it apart from the competition.
Rupee  +   788d ago
Yeah it'd be pretty cool to see a ww2 game with the new frostbite engine.
SpecialK  +   788d ago
Like some have said i reckon this game needs to be remade as a WW2 shooter.

The market is saturated with authentic modern day shooters, weve not had a big name WW2 game for a little while now, especially in the way the MoH games did them.

Im thinking that this is something for next gen though, that way the game will get attention with better visuals and who knows maybe finally have the grunt to create massive battles.

Something like D day recreated on a massive could stir up a lot of interest, and we know they can do that as airbourne has large scale arenas

THIS WAS NOT AN OFFICIAL EA Medal of Honor sanctioned community site!!! this was just some random person that was a fan of the series!! this article is EXTREMELY misleading!!
wenaldy  +   788d ago
I really wish they'd back into the roots, Medal of Honor with Jimmy Patterson going clandestine operation across Europe, Africa and Pacific theaters with other characters like Manon Batiste or William Holt.

I would love to see a new WW game, we've gone from nothing but WW titles to nothing but MW/future games. There is no balance, I don't want to play another Cod wannabe.
This is what happens when you abandon your loyal fanbase for the MTV crowd that will not buy your game in droves because they are content with Call of Duty #9.
HonestDragon  +   788d ago
Maybe this will be a wake up call for EA. Well, not that them getting the Worst Company in America title was enough of one, but also considering the many criticisms they receive for their business practices.

Warfighter was a complete mess. Bugs, glitches, annoying scripted sequences, horrible cutscene graphics, badly told narrative, and a lackluster multiplayer are what led to its downfall. EA simply had it rushed out before Black Ops II debuted. We shall see how EA will handle things now, but I wouldn't hold my breath that they try to improve anything.
