Medal of Honor: Warfighter – An Unfair Backlash?

Liam Pritchard of Brash Games writes "It has been coming. Somebody was going to, as my Mum might say, “catch it in the neck”. After years of military shooters, albeit, mostly rather good ones, one game was going to be on the receiving end of the media backlash. I think most expected it to be Call of Duty". (Medal of Honor: Warfighter, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

If CoD is "slightly" better is minor ways why not just play that?

There was really nothing that set it apart from one of the most popular video games in history. That is why it failed.

If you have to dig to find what's unique you're doomed.

That was the biggest drawback of MoH....it tried to hard to be a CoD game! Like Ghost Recon future solider tried to do also and though I own both of these games they both FAILED!

I will stick to playing BF3 and the GRAW series.

I played it for a while. I loved the gun play, the best since Resistance 3, but everything else was lacking. The multiplayer was way too convoluted; having to pick a class, then pick the nation, then the gun, then the attachments. Too many steps when people just want to pick a gun and have fun.

It also just didn't feel polished, it looked like we were playing laser tag. Had to go back to Battlefield 3 after about a month.

Wish they stuck with the first one and just fine tuned it, and got rid of the Battlefield gameplay. If I want COD, I'll play COD. Just because you improve the visuals doesn't make it better.

Everyone I know that defended the game only talked about sliding to crouch and peeking around corners. I tell them "well Killzone did some of that" and they throw a fit lol

Doesn't the implementation of those mechanics, along with more asymmetrical maps, make it not so similar to the CoD series?

I don't own the game myself, but I have watched people play it and CoD never came to mind. It isn't a twitch shooter, by any means.

Honestly, I really enjoy the multiplayer.
Played for about two hours today.

I don't think the backlash was justified, buy hey, it is what it is.

its a cod clone, it should have remained in ww1/2 and more focused on single player, in fact just dump the multiplayer and leave that the focus of battlefield

I loved the first one, and I'm currently downloading my free MOH: Warfighter copy from Origin, anyway, the campaign could not be worse than that game where you get to ride a horse in the desert and shoot UFOs.

Yeah I thought Warfighters multi was great, the sliding to cover, the peaking, choosing characters and gun customization. What it needed was a terrorist hunt mode :D

I still say this one was a good game.
