Medal of Honor has attempted to offer something on a par with Modern Warfare 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2, each distinctive and each terrific in its own area of expertise. Before development started, Electronic Arts must have known that the odds were against them. Medal of Honor is recognised as a classic war game with great set pieces, but this latest addition to the series brings it into a present day setting. There's been plenty of hype and excitement for what promised to be the most refreshing Medal of Honor game ever made. In hindsight, taking a leap into the 21st Century was a tragic mistake."
