Today Electronic Arts announced a demo of its latest Medal of Honor game, Airborne, will be released on Xbox Live and PC on Thursday, August 23. The PC version will be available from the official Medal of Honor Website.
Bring on Call of duty 4. Who in their right mind would settle for this game?
Medal of Honor is a great series. I just wish there were more demos for the PS3 though.
Activision really won the WW2 FPS battle. Not only they kept releasing their Shooters games yearly (COD3 last year, COD4 now) they also got all the praise and buzz while EA worked for 3 years and didn't release a big next-gen game in the series. (MOH:Vangaurd was a small spin-off).
I am still suffering TMWGFD To-Many-WWII-Games-Fatigue-Dis order. ;)
I really want to try out this game and Call of Duty 4, after Rising Sun, damn that game was awful.
Agreed. MOH was the game that started the WW2 shooters crazy and was darn great game on PSone. Hope Airbourne does the game justice.
Return to Castle Wolfenstein was before MOH...and was better imo...MOH was the first scripted shooter I guess... but RTCW looked better...and had a better online setup...although a typical iD wierd story that made little sense (Heinrich the 1st?), kind of took away from the realism...I felt that the first MOH's terrible friendly AI took away from the game considerably...
EA is being really lazy with PS3. First the Madden 08 framerate story. Then they wont release SKATE demo for PS3 and now same story goes for MOH:A. They should learn from 2K games' Darkness which saw demos for both PS3 and 360.
EA is pathetic, it's a good thing Call of Duty isn't made by them.
Then, some EA's John Riccitiello come and ask why they don't sell that good on PS3... Well, that's what you get when the maximum you invest on a platform is the money to make a (crap) port. http://kotaku.com/gaming/wh... I'm plain simple with EA. No demo, no buy. Why would I buy a game from EA, that have such highs and lows, without testing it before? Most of their games are lame even if few of then are pretty good...
If we went straight to CoD4 we would think 'wow amazing', but I think after playing this demo, Call of Duty 4 will be even more awesome since it'll outdo Medal of Honor and any other WWII shooter more than ever.
ha yeah...there was a lot of stuff with MOH:A before E3...even around the very first COD4 stuff...then after E3, MOH:A has been completely destroyed on every level...no one wants to play WWII anymore....and its WWII rival franchise has made the step out of that era... airborne may get ok reviews...like in the past...but sales wise this game will be completely destroyed on both platfroms no matter what...the PS3 and 360 both have a plethora of shooters that put this game to utter shame...the PC has a few also (just not as many)...maybe EA will finally realise that nailing down a plan to just milk every franchise they have to complete death with little change year to year can end up being worse than being a "risk taker in development" as they put it...
Why cant I get any Demos on PSN?? Live gets demos all the time, then weeks later it might come out on the PS3, but probably not? Whats up with that??
Yeah this is a serious question here... why does the 360 get so many demos before or over the ps3? thats Sony's doing right?? i own a ps3 and a wii and plan on getting a 360 once they get the 65 nm cpu so i am open to all sides...
I bet there are some ps3 fans out there who can answer that one for ya. They'll probably have a perfect excuse for that matter, as they have one for all off sony's shortcomings.
Is it me or is 360 getting tons of love with many great demo's!
360 is getting serious demo love but mostly from EA (Peter Moore effect?). Skate, MOH and more...
