So the Battlefield, er… Medal of Honor Beta has been out for a while and EA has been touting it to the be next best multiplayer experience. How does this game stack up to the competition?
I have to agree, I have played the beta for a bit now and it really doesn't bring anything to the table that hasn't already been offered. This game would have been amazing during the first Modern Warfare days, but now it just feels like an uninspired clone. Let's just hope that the single player campaign is more original.
Medal Of Honor is always been about single player. I mean it had multiplayer since first game (split-screen greatness oh yeah) but I think this game will also be a story based one. Multiplayer will be there just to make game appeal more to the gamers and it looks quite good to me.
generic so if that sounds bad at all, run away! If not it really is fun. I bet when it's fully releast it rocks, but don't mark me words boyz.
This was the 1st brutally honest review I have seen yet. Like the author,I to am a HUGE fan of BFBC2. After a VERY long delay and a huge dent my time to d/l the MoH beta,I must say it wasn't worth it. I was thinking it would have been alot better than what was showen at this years E3. As I have said in other post about this game,It should NOT be released in it's current form and brought back to the drawing board. I will be canceling my pre-order for it on monday!
'Twas a letdown.
i have an extra key if anyone wants it
I'd like one, I love BC2 and MW2, this should hopefully be a nice middle.
You'd think so, instead it's just not as good as either imo lol and COD really does my head in
The hit detection is fine, only broken on the shotgun. I agree with what most of the Author is saying, but at the same time I get the feeling that some of there complaints are a result of them getting there ass handed to them, consistently online. As I say, hit detection on this game is near perfect. I wouldn't call the maps badly designed either, they were pretty good actually. The one reminded me a fair bit of blacklot from COD4, in structure. Where the game let's it slide is controls, which make the gameplay mediocre. BC2 has the same controls, yeah - but it's not trying to be a run and gun, CQC-ish shooter. They should make this game feel different, and in turn become it's own game. Also, if they're not using the fb destruction engine then they should not be using the frostbite engine at all because it isn't good at... anything else. Low res textures and jaggies are all over the place. I hope that this is something that is fixed with the full game.
I consider myself to be a modern style of combat game pro and the main complaint I have is that theres NOTHING new or inovative about the game. It tries to hard to be more like CoD/mw2 than a battlefield clone. MRV321,if you like MW2 more than BFBC2,then you will like it. If your thinking that because this is from the same people as BFBC2 and the game play is as much fun,you will be sadly disapointed! Anyone know the status on "six days in Falujah"? EA/Dice should have scored the rights to publish that game. It will be ashame to not let that game see the light of day!
It's crap COD Killer indeed.
CoD doesn't need a killer, it killed itself... BFBC2 is far superior, you can argue that many more people play CoD, but i can come back with many more people listen to Lady Gaga, does not make it good music :P the masses are pretty dumb and follow each other like sheep.
i agree with alot of the comments here, the game multiplayer wise is very similiar to BC2 and MW2 and doesnt really do anything new its a very solid multiplayer and dont forget its still beta. im looking forward to the single player more than online.
I had high hopes for MOH but after playing the beta I found it very "meh" with nothing at all standing out and saying you need to get this game. It bothered me that this game is released after Battlefield BC 2, and yet it seems to take a step back from BBC2 in every possible way. The controls don't feel as tight and it feels like you are gliding when running around (a problem I've always had with MOH games now that I think about it), which takes away from the fun. Also, I don't know if it is by design, but I didn't feel as if a large enough difference between the classes. I felt like the 3 glasses all blended together and it didn't really matter which you chose as opposed to BBC2 where the class selection greatly changes how you play the game. Of course, this is all with the caveat that it is a beta, and a lot of the problems I had with the game can be fixed. However, because of this beta I will now be waiting to see if the problems I had were fixed upon release of the game rather than it being a day 1 purchase like I originally planned.
Its already allot of cheaters in the beta. You can download the hacks many places on the internet...
That is what killed the fun of playing Turd of Dooty/MW2! The hacks and cheaters made it so one sided that I traded my copy of it in along time ago. If these so-called "game hackers" put there intelligence into game design,they would be making the gaming world a much better place for everyone! With these morons already hacking the MoH beta,it gives me another to cancel my order for it.
The MOH beta sucked. Shoot, COD is much better. Sorry to say.
Not too impressed and as much as I love BC2, Dice just left us out in the cold as far as maps go. I'm pretty tired of playing the same maps over and over. The beta maps on MOH show very little imagination as well and the large map is hideous. How many times have you died running across that valley with very little cover? Talk about a sniper paradise. I agree with the article as far as underpowered weapons and hit detection are concerned, sometimes the kill is immediate and other times I unload a whole clip into someone's back only to suffer a slow glitchy death sequence myself. Hopefully changes will come but it's pretty late in the game to see anything that'll bring this game above a COD clone. I'll rent first most likely.
Disappointing. At least I have Bad Company 2.
The MP needs a lot of work. I plan on just playing the single player when I rent it. The online experience is sketchy. When you die, it isn't fluid. You get hit and the frame rate drops to 10fps then your character twitches and thats it. The lack of kill cam and the glitchy kills, make dying a frustration and unlearning experience. You can get hit one in the knee and die, other times a rocket to face does nothing. The controls are good, the movement is solid, the maps are fun. It's a bit of sketchy shooting, and dying isn't done well at all, since you always and twitch out when taking damage. They should of let you die with out a glitchy switch to a nasty cutscene. click to 5:15 http://www.youtube.com/watc...
as i have said on prevous posts about this game.unless this is a realpre alpha game.and weve not seen the final product.as the game is just around the corner to be shiped i can only asume what weve plaed snt gonna change muc. so if thats the case. this game sucks. smells like cod 4 plays like cod 2 lags like someones just come into a lobby with very bad connection causing everybody about 2second latancey lag.when being shot.the tetures are awful and seems they havent taken the heart of MOH game at all.were it began and the reason why MOH STARTED.in memory of WW2 heros now today we faced with a cod clone it just seems to be like a quick knock up multiplayer. very small maps. i still cant get my head around the same people that did badcompany 2 DICE the engine shined the gameplay great and this made by same people.even the engine doesnt match. my preorder has been canceled
AMEN BROTHER! I'm glad it's not just me that feels this strong about a game beta. If I had to say one thing positive about the MoH beta is that I never had a lag issue in the over 20 hours I put in trying to play this beta. That being said,I never had a lag issue with the beta/released public demo of BFBC2 either. Although with the BFBC2 demo,what you played,is what you got when it came out.( even though it was only 1 map ) I now will use BFBC2 to judge any and all future modern combat sims to before buying.
Imagine Call of duty and bad company 2. Now imagine they took away all the things that made those games good. Thats what the beta felt like...
Eh, i thought the beta wasnt terrible. Then again i managed to play the beta and have not one single issue. It ran fine with no lag or glitches whatsoever. I guess i was lucky. It was decent. Ill be buying the game for Frontline HD and SP.
