GamerZines: Patrick Liu, producer for Medal Of Honor's multiplayer at DICE, has explained that MOH is "not as over the top as Battlefield."
Played like Modern Warfare from what i remember from the beta (that i only played 3 times coz it was crap)
*sigh* another prime example of why devs should not hold "open betas"
idd, you get naive people not understand the concept or matter of the beta and goes around saying ludacris. But it can't be helped I guess.
xYLeinen, You are the naive person here. Almost all open betas are used to market the game these days, and usually very little to almost nothing changes from the open beta to the final product. The best example i can give you would be Bad Company 2 which I think is quite fitting in this case.
Well you obviously did not read all the beta fixes made then. EA released these a couple of days ago and there were tons. Sure, I agree that betas are used a promotional tools, but in this case they used the beta as a tool to make fixes. I'm naive, right.
just adding linkin park to the mix made me just hate this game even more its a bastard child from mw2 and bc2
WOW, dissing something they help build
uh.... i wouldnt call that dissing.... jeez.
Yeah, we know. The beta sucked.
.. I'll have you know that alot of drastic improvements have been made to the game since the beta. A huge graphical leap is just one of 'em.. :P
Actually the huge graphical leap gets me very excited about this game. I just couldnt stand the jaggies and overall bland looking visuals. It is not gonna be a day one for me, but a $40 purchase, as I dont care about its multiplayer, provided the single player experience is solid and long.
The BETA was very tame compared to BC2
more like mw2 for sure -
Battlefield is considered "over-the-top"? Jesus. I'd hate to see how they'd describe MW2, because that is OTT.
MOH so far is totally underwhelming. The beta was pure crap and they have a long way to go with the game, besides milking its name
open beta's should be banned from now on
The consensus (sp?) ive seen from a lot of gamers on other websites as well say the beta sucked and is more MW2-like then they wanted. Anything MW2-like is a no buy in my book.
unless youve played the demo y make assumptions?
if 100 people told you a movie sucked, and 1 told you it was awesome, would you spend your money to watch said movie? i bet not.
Would have bought it if it had Move support, but so far looks pretty bland.
Have you even checked the huge - Wait, no, MASSIVE, list of improvements that they made from the beta? It's been listed here on N4g for a while, but you trolls aren't seeing it. Anyway, this is EA's game, so stop faulting DICE for "sucking" at it, they are only making the multiplayer, not single player, and since it is based off EA's/Danger Close's reboot of MOH (The singleplayer), of course it will be different than what they have done with the game they had full control over (BC2). For example, MOH is much more infantry based, and less squad based than BC2. The heaviest vehicle I've seen for MOH compares to the light tanks in BC2. Anyway, what they mean by this, is that it won't have the huge spaces, vehicles, that BC had, and will be a much tighter, more detailed game. Rather than large battles, think medium sized skirmishes.
finally an intelligent comment heres a bubble for using your brain and not saying that the beta sucked so the games going to fail
ive seen the headway DICE has made for the hit registration, weapon balances, and other so called "fixes" they've made with the PC version of BC2. all CRAP. why would i put my faith in MoH? not to mention the attempt to copycat CoD. and "MOH is much more infantry based, and less squad based than BC2". sounds more like a MW title to me.
You see it as more like MW2 (A bad thing) I see it as more focused, like a blend of BC2 and MW2. (A good thing)
Dear Dice. Please do not hold back on BF3. Love gamers.
In terms of the beta, I thought it was not that great. In terms of a "marketing" beta, it failed in that regard, which imo, is all these open betas are. Until they release a MP demo for this game, I wont even consider getting it after the beta experience. Some betas give you a very good idea into what the game is about. This one apparently did not since everyone is saying they changed alot of stuff.
You really shouldnt judge a whole game off a beta. If they do come out with a demo(which I heard they are) and you still dont like it, then you can pass full judgement. The beta also barely showed any of the game. Theres supposedly a whole nother game mode made by DC that they havent announced yet called "Project Mercury"
Thats why I said "Until they release a MP demo for this game, I wont even consider getting it after the beta experience.". Meaning, I am not buying the game off of what I saw in the beta, Il wait and see if they release a demo. Also meaning that I am not judging the full game off of the beta, I just didnt enjoy the beta from an entertainment perspective. Also, there were tons of bugs, which I heard have been fixed, but still left a bad taste in mouth. Some betas have enough core gameplay that you can basically know if you are going to like it or not. This one did not fall into that category.
I guess I am the only one who did like the MOH beta and thought the multiplayer was good. To me it was not much difference than COD MW multiplayer.
LOL yeah..right cause exploding heads when you sniper taliban´s and CoD style gameplay aren´t over the top *sarcasm* i mean don´t get me wrong but in my eyes CoD is the most "over the top" game (nukes etc.) Battlefield is more tactic and MoH is trying to fill the gap between them both which is a good thing but to call battlefield over the top is not right in my eyes but do what you have to, to promote your new game ;)
