This fall see’s arguably the two greatest first-person shooter brands go head to head, but which one will come out critically, commercially and revolutionary better than the other? Call of Duty: Black Ops or Medal of Honor?
As soon as Activision announces 10 bucks a month or so for multiplayer for Black Ops I'm guessing Medal of Honor >_>
This is exactly what i'm trying to decide but yeah if Activision starts charging for online its gonna be Medal of Honor.
I feel bad for saying this but, I actually like the cinematic feel of Black Ops. I enjoy COD. But if they charge I won't buy. I'll just rent and play the campaign. I am currently playing the MoH Beta, and I like it. But it needs a lot of work. My biggest peeve is how it's glitchy and laggy as you die. And with no killcam, it's frustrating watching you die at 3 frames a sec not knowing from where. But a few tweaks and I'll be all for it. I do have say with so much coming this fall, and GT5 and Reach, I may just pass up on the online anyway.
@NecrumSlavery I agree about the MoH beta. I am enjoying it as well, but it needs a decent amount of work. I keep hoping their will give a better multiplayer experience than Black Ops but I somehow doubt it. CoD franchise is solid, very solid imo. And as far I'm concerned, Treyarch is doing some good stuff to the multiplayer. Removing nuke, extended knife distance etc.
@ xyleinen I hated the nuke feature. Should of been a game mode, not a perk. As much as we all hate it, we got to admit COD is a really decent franchise, with a lot of variety.
Can you provide a link where Activision is thinking of charging for playing Black ops online? As I did not know this and can also be a reason for me to not purchase this game.
The only way MoH is going to beat Call of Duty is if Activision starts charging for their multiplayer. However, if people still play then my lord, gaming is going to turn into monthly pays.
None I don't like shooters
then why the hell did you click the link and post a comment??
Because it is funny
neither one, i prefer GHOST RECON FUTURE SOLDIER.
No, no it's not.
then u guys think that cod black ops its better than MOH?
Black ops all the was as long as Black ops has no vehicles. Vehicles and COD gameplay dont mix. WAW and COD 3 sucked because of the vehicles.
black ops does have confirmed vechicles in the main story and multiplayer
Yea I seen vehicles for the sp thats fine. I havent seen anything confirming vehicles for mp. If there are vehicles for the mp they better be killstreaks and not be in team deathmatch, be in the war game mode.
There were tanks in WaW, so whats the problem? Its easy to take them out with rockets and sticky bombs.
Black Ops, or if there are any online charges.....nothing. MoH looks like crap.
i will wait for killzone 3
Will be SOCOM 4 so just save your money and save bad experience from other games just get Socom 4 and if you dont have a PS3 buy one for this game if you really love shooters if you can't just get Halo reach and have fun.
Strictly for the amazing, historical, realistic war that is currently going on. Like the ww2 days of old, a game based on something real that we can see on tv, not some Tom Clansey action flick like COD.
Nukes...runing forever....shall i go on....COD is not real
MoH is just CoD on the BC2 engine, its not really that realistic either, plus if you think Realistic = fun then Operation Flash Point is the best game EVER!!!!!!
I was going to get COD but if they start charging for online it will be none of them, played the MOH beta and found it very boring so im thinking of waiting till Socom comes out then getting that with the move and then onto KZ3
not that I disagree with you. But doesn't anyone play games for the singleplay/story anymore. I'm only 22 but I sure do...too many people just skip over it and judge on multiplayer alone.
Agree, Halo is my favorite FPS and I never play its multiplayer.
I dont think black ops and MoH would be at the top of anyones list for single player games lol, I think both titles will be mainly geared towards the MP. OT I'm not buying either, too many great games coming out to be spending my money on generic games. If I HAD to choose i'd go with CoD.
hell yeah, I love SP, but no way in hell am I going to buy 60€ a 8h solo experience.
I'm a single player campaign gamer first and foremost. I haven't even touched the MP component on a lot of the games in my collection. I don't think I'll be getting either this year, but if I had to pick it'd be Black Ops. The campaign looks like it'll be pretty cool.
Of course people still play games for the story. But you have to remember that most people don't want to play the same story over and over again. Once you've played through single player once or twice, it's done for you. But with multi-player it's unlimited fun. Thus it is the most important for an FPS.
I'm enjoying the MOH beta at the moment, I only like the larger objective based map though, but I just know I'll end up buying Black Ops, mainly because my mates will. But still, I like the COD games, I know they get a lot of flack, much of which I agree with, but I just have fun playing them and thats what its all about.
I know that the majority of the people here think badly of Activision and their ways as do I. But you can't deny the fact that CoD games are super addictive with pretty awesome gameplay.
killstreaks do add for the fun and achievement
But at the same time they are also a bit unbalanced in MW2. Your good enough to get a 7 kill streak, then you're given a harrier and breeze your way through a shitload more kills with little effort. There really should be options to customize allowed killstreaks on a server. Or play any mode with them off completely. I heard they are trying to balance the killstreaks a bit better in black ops, also removing the nuke.
was when I ended people's kill streaks and they cursed me out. Good times lol
Some factors: - Black Ops will release on 360 2 months after Halo Reach, how many do you think will leave the game for COD? -MOH is ahead of Black Ops in the preorder charts on the PS3, and will release a month ahead. - Including those three, the limelight will be shared by Rage, Brink, KZ3, and Bullittstorm. So I think it will be tougher on COD this time around.
Just because i need variety....personally i might get socom instead of that and play battlefield
Well there is 1 plus to Reach being released before it.... A lot less whiny 12 year olds playing COD, since younger people tend to like the style of Halo multiplayer more. :)
MOH for me. Better visuals (destruction) and possibly BC heritage with a little like CoD playstyle. Also out this fall BC2-Vietnam (just a DLC but a full single play experience, AFAIK). Brink is 2010, KZ3, Rage, Bulletstorm 2011, aren't they ? Brink is my favorite for this year, and when KZ3 releases there won't be any time for anything else for a couple of month.
For me the call of duty gameplay is so smooth that it makes black ops so attractive. However MOH for me offers the realism for what is going on in Afghanistan at the moment so I would proberly buy MOH over Black Ops just because its set in a present day combat non-fiction environment. I may buy both though depending on how poor MOH is or how good Black Ops is.
Crysis 2 over both. Free Radical (TimeSplitters) are making the multiplayer! Hell yes!
Yea, I`ll be grabbing KZ3 and Crysis over both.
neither . There are actually interesting titles looming on the horizon for the genre , not necessarily innovative but at least different ... Like Brink , kz3 , socom , Bulletstorm , potentially crysis 2 and maybe even for once some halo with Reach .
some of those are nex year so we have time,but im getin medal of honor out of the way den cod,i had a great time with the beta
I've already pre-purchased MOH on Steam.
I don't want any of them. Killzone 3, Halo: Reach and Brink are the only FPS I'll play until probably the end of 2011. Maybe Bulletstorm or Crysis 2, maybe.
everyone is going to be happy nex year,360=gears 3,ps3=killzone 3,well all be playing those till brink comes out.well some of us
When I first saw Medal of Honour my first thought was Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 It still is right now
I boycott acitivision and MOH beta made me puke. So none ^^
Same here! :D
Neither. The only FPS I'll be picking up this year is Crysis 2. (We'll see on Brink.) Killzone 3 is next year. ;)
so is brink, sorry edit : what's with disagree? brink IS delayed to 2011
Looks more interesting to me right now thanks to the stealth emphasis, but I really want more info on the actual campaign for Medal of Honor. Might pick up both. Regardless, I'll probably be playing more Reach than anything else for the next year by far, although I'm sure Killzone 3, Rage and Crysis 2 will distract me at least momentarily.
Medal of Honour with out a doubt. Black ops looks good but I am unsure if the story will get ridiculous as its about secret wars with Russia. I am fed up with fighting the Russians (i.e. BFBC and COD) They are not a realistic enemy to fight considering wars are fought against insurgents now a days and not big super powers
Neither, Socom 4, Ghost Recon, and Crysis 2. I still like ma BFBC2 :)
ohh hard decision. hmmm i know ill put them back on the shelf and choose bad company 2 and kz3 preorder.
out of those two it will have to be call of duty,EA fps games are inferior to COD.
It's a shame that Treyarch has to suffer for IW's shitty MW2. That game ruined the entire COD franchise. How do you go from MW to MW2? MW was perfect and MW2 sucked so much. It's MOH and SOCOM 4 for me.
MW2 is one of the most popular FPS's around... yeah it must be so bad!
Just because it's popular doesn't make it good. Example...Voting for Obama was the popular thing to do in 2008...and we all know how that turned out.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam is what i'll be gunning for. Medal of Honour is a COD copy and COD is shit, so it's a copy of SHIT!!! Jokes, COD4 was amazing but MW2 is SHIT!!!
I think Black Ops is looking good, maybe Treyarch could save the Cod franchise
passing on both
So I'm going with Black Ops. World at War is my favorite CoD, everss. & now Treyarch's back. I have lots and lots of hope for this game.
Black ops, Crysis 2, KZ3, Brink. They're the only announced FPS's i'm buying, maybe MOH if i have spare cash.
ZOMBIES, ZOMBIES, ZOMBIES!!
probably not black ops, since its made by treyarch and moh i hear is meh. So I don't know if I will pick up any, but probably more bfbc2 and socom.
Probably black ops
