Jim Hargreaves of Game Kudos writes his impressions straight from the Medal of Honor beta made available earlier this week, and its potential to "de-throne" rivals Modern Warfare 2 and Bad Company 2.
Well you need Medal of Honor: The Two Towers first.
and can't have that without Fellowship of the Ring
Woah! There's only one Return. And it ain't if the king, it's of the Jedi! I have been playing MoH in PS3. Notice no disconnection both pre and post patch. However I have to say it's on the fence. Pros- graphically nicer than MW2.... The weight and sounds and feedback of the weapons are great.... The loading in solid and smooth. Cons- when you die the game slightly lags and it cuts to a video of you dead, should at leasst show you through a kill cam. Shots seem inaccurate and when your getting shot, there's movement slowdown sometimes. Kind of makes you feel cheated. Other than that it's wonderful, but if the online isn't improved I'm renting only. Beta is still a nice though. I see great things for MoH if they get the MP solid. This doest feel like a COD killer, but definitely a more rewarding experience in the making. Definitely more for the Battlefield crowd than the COD crew. As a killzone vet, it's nice to feel some weight in the weapons. Just my opinion though.
Agent Smith - Brilliant... Nitrowolf2 - Are you an Alec Baldwin fan?
what is it 3 or 4 months left? i think theres still alot of work left to be done with multiplayer alone, and taking into consideration its multiplatform, and how EA rushes things then i would say "potential to surpass.... MW2" just isnt true.
Not getting this. Played the Beta and it's too similar to BC2 and MW2 without being better than either. I'm also not getting it because EA has a history of messing things up. BC2's recent patches have caused massive lag as of late. Army of Two 40th Day was garbage online. BC1 had a lot of problems that weren't fixed until a year later. There are way too many good games coming out this year, especially on PS3, so EA better not screw this one up.
LMAO funny comment
For it to be Return of the king it would have to be the king of FPS. And Medal of Honor never was the King Of FPS.
I thought the first Medal of Honor was incredible. The game blew my mind at the time. People may hate me for this, but i thought it was better than Goldeneye. I dont mean to say Goldeneye was bad, it was anything but bad, but i liked MOH better.
I think EA should have polished it a little more before releasing the beta - it feels too much like BFBC2
I think Halo is the king of FPS.If I am Wrong pleazz tell me y . EDIT:When Halo was released they already prounce it the king of FPS because of the multiplayer cause many of friends told me.Maybe they heard it Wrong.Anyway thanks for the information BWS1982. EDIT:@BWS1982 Dude I wasnt argueing I was just misunderstanding I though tat halo is the cause many guys take on halo when it comes to Fps.PLEAZZ DONT GET ME WRONG I dont hav tat knowledge abut Fps games tat y.Abut Perfect Dark playd the game its awesome.
MOH: AA arguably was, depending on who you talk to. I would put it up there with the best ever, Allied Assault on the PC, that is. I understand that's subjective though. Personally, at the time, I felt Perfect Dark was around the same caliber, as was Return to Castle Wolfenstein (PC) and A Vs. P 2 (PC)...Again, subjective. I hope people recall that the original IW team came from the Allied Assault team. This is long before they tarnished their rep, too. Edit @ Snakefist: I don't find Halo 1 to be near the best ever, because it didn't have anything memorable and it wasn't polished enough (those repeating indoor environments? copy and paste=check!), but hey, that's just me. I feel GoldenEye and Perfect Dark did all of it, sans the online stuff, first and still better, personally. Don't get me wrong, this is all opinion, it can't take away from your sentiments.
well, not being a halo fan, it IS one of the most popular online FPS today for a reason. but call of duty has to be the most popular and the most played on consoles and i wouldnt be surprised on pc either. goldeneye is king though ARMA2 blows everything out of the water today imo but you need a awesome pc to run it. KZ2 has to be the most intense, ever. fear2 is the SCARIEST FPS have ever played OMG. lots of ppl like battlefield for a reason, it is awesome. nothing has passed crysis in terms of the most realistic graphics. just my 2 cents on FPS's
it looks epicc, and I like it's grittier, more realistic style and reckon it could and most likely will be better than COD. But one can only wait and see...
EA can make a product that doesnt freeze like its a game of freeze tag and the way to get unfrozen is to turn off your PS3...ok that didnt make sence lol. But intil that happens COD is king, sorry and no that isnt fanboyizm thats the truth!
I rooted for COD to come back on top and they did. I'm still rooting for MOH to take back the thrown. Remember, kids: You wouldn't have Call of Duty without Medal of Honor. Respect your ancestor! hehe I'm excited for it. I'm getting that edition that comes with the old Medal of Honor. I have that one for PS2. Frontlines, right? My PS2 one is kind of jumpy so it'd be nice to get it with the new MOH.
well the beta is decent, lets just wait till the whole game comes out, cause right now team deathmatch and that rush game mode rip off is not doing it for me right now.
"Comes with 100% chance of freezing every game."
They have to do A LOT to dethrone Modern Warfare 2's campaign for me. They COULD beat the multi-player, but I'm not touching it. I play MAG. People who MAG don't really care about too many other multi-player games.
i have the beta god i hate it. it's another generic military shooter nothing different from MW2 it's the same ! holy crap i didn't even know if i was playing medal of honor. i want something original like dead space 2
I like the game but it dosen't top the way COD feels when compared to Medal Of Honor. Medal Of Honor just looks and sounds good but the feel like COD isn't just there yet...
there are so many games worth your 60$ i just don't see this as a MUST BUY. i so far am going to buy fallout new vegas, gran turismo 5 (FINALLY), LITTLE BIG PLANET 2,
The beta is decent, seems to try to catch the MW2 atmosphere with a touch of BC2.
Simply put, NO! I really hate the state of gaming this generation, everyone is trying so hard to be gritty, bloody, and realistic with FPS games and yet they are failing to see that sometimes having a great FPS game means to do something diffirent instead of following the pack.
I see them more like over the top and ridiculous. Classic FPS style which doesn't involve massive explosions, a generic health recharge bar/blood pulse, over the top so-called "epic" scenes and ridiculous number of enemies(unless its serious sam), are few and far between. Look at games like HL2, Farcry(the first one) and Crysis, they don't have the mindless onslaught of enemies and do not require trial and error to pass the levels but thinking and some proper strategy with the occasional badass firefight. These kind of games are what I would like to see more of. Not the bullet raining, trial and error mind numbing stupidity and lack of identity known as the modern FPS.
i like my killzone2 with non-stop badass intense firefights, but i play operation flashpointDR for my urge of tactical, realistic combat. i want war games to capture the realistic feeling of war and any other game to be fun in its own way like bioshock and team fortress2.
I'm not saying that they should stop making games like KZ2 but the sheer number of carbon copies and imitators makes it seem so generic now, where's the new ideas and greatness of the FPS genre. I could not tell the difference in gameplay from MW, MW2 and BC2 and now it seems the same with Black Ops and Medal of Honor.When you look at the basics of the gameplay it boils down to the same thing over and over again.Thats the problem for me.
its was never king and second play the beta, MOH is garbage
People may hate me for this... but after playing beta... I wished that DICE focused on BFBC2. Heck they have that huge Vietnam expansion coming up right? And with Medal of Honor in the way... damn lots of work ahead of them. I honestly didn't like the way they were involved with MOH. If only EA accquired ex-infinity wards sooner they would've gave Medal of Honor justice in terms of competiting with Activision's Modern Warfare. DICE, I love their work on Battlefield games, especially Battlefield 2 and their current series Bad company. But the new Medal of Honor series? Judging from online beta, not so much. At least Single player is done by another team, so I'll see how that goes.
from what i see it can be a mod for BFBC2 on the PC !!! most of the beta is copied from BFBC2 so why i buy a mod when i have the original game :)
Well, maybe if Medal of Honor had its own identity, it could have a chance. Sadly, it doesn't.
E3 demo look wat better yall judging a old build
It will never beat COD MW2. Despite the problems, MW2 has an amazing engine, no game can beat the stable 60 fps, and that is what is most important in a First Person Shooter. The other reason is that MW2 is like an adictive drug, everyone says bad things about it, but no one can quitt.
return.... return of the king.... is that meant to be a joke, or they just labeling it the king of generic, copy and paste technique in which case yes. king of FPS, what... killzone 3 has something to say there, Halo Reach has something to say there, Rage, crysis, they are all way better. I thought MOH was rubbish, thats putting it lightly.
So yeah the king will Return.
Playing the beta and it offers nothing new...will pass on this.
