Why The Medal of Honor Beta is the Best Shooter of 2010 (So Far)

Joel Taveras, Deputy Editor of DualShockers writes, "I know that this headline may come off as a bold statement and perhaps even a bit sensationalist, especially considering how much bad flack the Medal of Honor Beta has been getting during its first week of being up. If you would have asked what I thought a week ago, I would have said that you couldn’t pay me to play this broken beta, which I think almost killed my PS3 on multiple occasions. However, after the very first patch released, I think I see what is going be the best shooter of the year. But don’t just take my word for it, find out why..."

I love the beta
I hate delay of your death, the controls feel right
idk i think this games feels like MW and BFBC mixed together

deadreckoning6662725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

Welp, it your opinion dude. Bad Company 2 is my pick for now. I can't judge till I play MOH(full version). I'm sure MOH will have a better single player than BC2..but idk about multiplayer.

@JoelT- Beta codes? YAY!!! I was planning on taking advantage of that Gunclub thing from EA. I already have BC2, so all I needed ta do was pre-order MOH to get into the beta. But as soon as I heard about the lag problems and freezes the beta had, I just didn't bother getting it. But now, I'm hearing that the patch fixed the problems. I'll hit u up nxt week!

JoelT2725d ago

We should be getting Beta codes to hand out. Let's see if I can change your opinion also!

kunit22c2725d ago

Joe if you got some extra beta codes could you hit me up too?

raztad2725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

MoH is a solid game.

I was complaining about its graphics, but they still are much better than MW1. What really affect the visual fidelity is the lack of AA. Explosions and sound are rather good.

Past the visuals, now I managed to play some matches w/o crashing and too much lag, I can say game plays well. I like it.

NYPunkster2725d ago

MW1 are you fucking kidding me? Dude stop trolling.

Crazyglues2725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

Did you say beta code?

Yeah hit me up if you get an extra, I need to check this out, see if it really is anything to write home about...

Some people are saying it's the baby of if BBC2 and COD4 got together and somehow had a kid...LoL

idk, how true that is but that's what people are saying.. Someone needs to write a full review of the beta.. because from what I see I just don't know if this is really any good.

Right now I think BBC2 is all I need.

"i think this games feels like MW and BFBC mixed together

In what way?, the shallow aspect of MW2 mixed with the lag and hit detection problems of BFBC2...yep it sounds like a real winner.

TotalPS3Fanboy2725d ago

You're probably thinking about the lag in MW2.

itsralf2725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

BC2 lags like crazy. MW2 is pretty stable at this point.

TotalPS3Fanboy2725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

Because BF:BC2 doesn't lag at all and MW2 lags like crazy.

foss32725d ago

I notice no lag in BFBC2 and I've played about 50 hours online.. PSN: foss

I can't see how someone can make a statement about a game being laggy online when a person's connection quality is completely subjective and based on a number of factors.

There are so many retarded comments on here it's depressing. There have also been a ton of utterly shite articles that have been going top of the front page here for awhile. It's really discrediting the site and I may have to just go to another gaming news aggregator.

SixZeroFour2725d ago

i heard it was just US servers that had lag...but it wasnt from launch, it was after some patch that was applied that messed everything up

i heard from one of my xbox friends (not a personal one) that if you change to UK servers (on ea.com or something) there is no lag, unless its your connection...havent tested this out yet tho

outlawlife2725d ago

bad company 2 most definitely lags, unless my character is walking backwards for no reason

the jacked up patches made me sell battlefield, they wouldn't fix real problems with the game they would just unnecessarily tweak weapons

to this day BFBC2 is the only game I've had that regularly crashed me back to dashboard, the game would just stop working

i played it for a couple months and just got irritated

the game got so much praise but as far as bugs go it was just as bad if not worse than MW2, everybody I know who played BFBC2 has stopped and gone onto something else

it is one of those games that seems good at first but the more you play it the more glaring issues pop up, bad company 2 seemed unfinished to me and then they tried to play catch up with patches

Im having alot of fun with the Beta

TotalPS3Fanboy2725d ago

Which is why it's called a beta.

HolyOrangeCows2725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

Yeeaaaah....I'm not really having these issues post-patch.

The lag is still really bad, though.

It's still pretty fun, though. The level design is exceptional, but it ultimately feels like I've played this game before. If they can fix the servers to reduce lag, I'll probably consider.

NYPunkster2725d ago

I hated the controls of BFBC2 and in MoH the controls felt somewhat similar. Then I discovered the sensitivity settings, MoH now feels responsive and quick on it's feet.

I hope the rabid Halo: Reach fans don't read this. lol

Seriously though, everything about this Beta is great. The added player weight (A La Killzone 2) really adds a serious sense of realism to it as well. October cannot come soon enough.

"Best Shooter of 2010 (So Far)"

At least you didn't write "Best Game EVAR!! lOLOLlol" like so many idiots are wont to do. -___-;;

I've seen beta gameplay footage and i'm a little concerned because the game reminds me a lot of Modern Warfare. Is that really the case or does it have an overall different feel besides the player/weapon weight?

JoelT2725d ago

It really feels overall different. It kind makes you want to ease up on the running and gunning and really picking and choosing your battles. MW2 can't hold a candle to this, unfortunately I'll just have to try and convince all of the idiots on friends list to understand that also.

SixZeroFour2725d ago

the "beta" is the "best shooter" so far? i think the proper title should have been "why I THINK the medal of honor beta is the best shooter of 2010 (so far)" cause technically no single person has the right to claim which game IS the best shooter, only what THEY THINK is the best shooter

so far out of fully released games i personally think BFBC2 is the best shooter of 2010 so far

NYPunkster2724d ago (Edited 2724d ago )

Microsoft_Spokesman2725d ago

I don't how you'll repsond to me as all of your bubbles are out but: The frostbite engine in MoH is a very stripped down Frostbite, roofs cant be blown neither can walls, only trees, crates etc. And the weighty controls are kind of annoying it makes the game feel like you are playing a hide and seek game and because of this people seem to camp much much more than MW2 for example.

Also, you talked about the recoil, I'm not sure if they changed the recoil with the patch but prepatch there was almost not recoil it was like you were shooting an airsoft rifle.

And I'll compare the controls more too BFBC rather than Killzone 2, but the problem is that hey becoming a little frustrating in close quarter combat.

Hitman07692725d ago

This is definitely one of the games I'm more excited about. I'm having issues redeeming my beta code but EA should be able to fix that for me over the phone soon.

ShOtCall3r332725d ago

i really like the simplicity of a 3 class setup. for me it makes things easier

spektical2725d ago

best shooter of the year? on a freeze fest beta? wow, i know who's opinion is not even worth a grain of salt.

JoelT2725d ago

you need to READ it, instead of being upset that you're not in the beta.

spektical2725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

@ above , what? i have the beta. Its a POS, whenever you get a 3+ killstreak the game freezes on you. Level design is exceptional, but gameplay is very lethargic (caught in between MW2, and BC2).

@lugia

I was going to get this game, but not anymore. I personally dont like the gameplay. I'll stick to BC2, besides onslaught is keeping me occupied ATM. :)

@Hitman

yes, i am aware that BC2 controls are slow, but its intentional. I just dont like MOH controls... like i said MOH is trying to find middle ground between BC2 and MW2. I personally dont think it'll work.

Hitman07692725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

@skeptical

Bad Company 2's controls are not on point. JUST SAYING!!!

@skeptical @me

I can respect your opinion just making sure you understand that. I myself will be joining in the beta soon I just need to get some support from EA, let's see how their customer service is!

lugia 40002725d ago (Edited 2725d ago )

Well said. At least the Halo Reach beta didn´t have any sorts of freezing.
We have killstreaks cough cough we mean score chains.
I prefer BFBC2 over this.
JoelT, yes I am in the beta, and I will not buy this game.
