A review of Medal of Honor, done in two parts (campaign and multiplayer) by the casual gaming website gamerawesomelive.com
It did not have too much hype to begin with.
EA's plan of bad press is still press to try and overshadow COD doesnt seemed to have worked.
If anything will Kill COD it wont be another FPS, it will be Activision. It will happen as soon as people realise they are buying yearly rehashes.
People keep saying that it "didn't live up to the hype" and frankly I never saw much hype.
Unfortunately it did not for me. Hopefully the next one will be better.
Something is wrong with you, this game is great. I guess haters have to hate. It's reminding me of the hate that Killzone got.
Sorry, but the game has been rushed and is bugged from the get go. How the hell can you miss two campaign glitches in the first three missions which prevent you from advancing further. (reffering to hellfire glitch @airstrip and apache mission glitch). Besides, as far as I have gotten in the game, it doesn't give me anything I haven't already seen in a COD game.
@nano i only had a glitch, with the atv, never had the hellfire glitch, haven't gotten to the apache, buggy yeah a bit, but i didn't think of it as a cod killer. "Besides, as far as I have gotten in the game, it doesn't give me anything I haven't already seen in a COD game." Well this is a truly brilliant statement /s, because i have yet to see something in a cod game, that wasn't pulled or modified from the medal of honor series from years ago on pc. What the hell are you expecting you idiot, they are special ops soldiers in a warzone, set in modern times using advanced military tactics and weapons. Oh yeah nukes as a killstreak reward -_-. And for all the people bashing moh, mw2 wasn't without it's flaws either.
Riiight, I'm a noob gamer, sorry, but I have been gaming on atari 2600, nes, snes, sega genesis, ps1, ps2, ps3 and just couple days ago bought my own i7 (though, I have played a lot of oldschool PC games i.e. Fallout, Deus EX, Diablo, Doom, Quake and the like, including some earlier MoH games). So, your theory already goes out of the window. Got the game yesterday and already got those two glitches. Had to do some wierd a$$ "press E to lean, so you can designate targets only the right side of the screen" workaround to get past that hellfire mission. Even if COD did pull something from earlier MoH games, atleast it did deliver an exiting campaign. MoH on the other hand had to improve on that, but it didn't (as far as I can tell for now). It's not a bad game, but it isn't a exceptional one either. It has the things I have already seen in COD4 and MW2. I also did get to play PS3 multiplayer beta, and it looked like some wierd crossover between Battlefield and MW2. Sorry, but this game lack's identity. Besides, where did I mention that MW didn't have it's flaws, it did. The multiplayer was horrendously glitched. But still, I did enjoy it. p.s. keep in mind, I haven't finished the singleplayer yet and tried the finished multiplayer, so my opinion may change. But for now it stands as is.
Yeh, I did not see any hype. The only thing of note was the people wanting to boycott it. I am having fun playing the solo campaign on teir 1
you didn't see any hype of it being labeled a COD Killer and all the controversy surrounding their initial decision to include the Taliban in multiplayer? EA has said directly that it's the first step in conquering the COD franchise...
Or all the hype how this would be a "personal" game that went in-depth with a soldiers life? A game that went past the superficial war drama and gave you access to a real soldiers soul? Or how the game was going to KILL Cod with it's realism and graphics? This game falls so flat. The only good thing about it is when I was looking at all the squares in the art design I felt like I was tripping. (Jaggies)
@beone, all good points. I was disappointed in the graphics more than anything. it felt so unpolished and rushed
I saw the commercials and claims of being a revolutionary FPS. It's Battlefield: Bad Company 2.5 :)
It was BC2.5, minus the awesome.
lol I was saying all that just after the BETA. The full game didn't get much beta, lol see what I did there???
every shooter now is called a COD killer. Its own commercials aren't really hype cuz every game a movie says its the best ever. Not really more hype than any other big game.
EA outright said it won't be a COD killer "yet" and quite frankly I expected that. You cant fight off brainwashed zombies in one try. This game was purely a stepping stone to the next one in the franchise, one that will be marketed heavily and developed perfectly. COD will most likely be on its downslope by then anyways.
what hype?this game has been getting bashed like crazy
In my mind, this game was gonna be OMGEESAUCE EPIC. So no.......xD Then again, I haven't played it. I'm only judging from reviews. ;P
I played the game's campaign and multiplayer and I can honestly say that it is boring and uninspired. I wish I could say something positive about it, but I can't.
7.5 at best. I'd give it a 6.5
Medal of Honor had hype? lol
I'd give it a 9 out of 10.
It had zero hype because EA tried to make it compete with Halo Reach and COD BO. If they gave the game another six months of development, it might have received hype. It was more the fanfare of the politically correct media that made a big deal about the game because of the whole Taliban issue, which in my mind was nothing of concern. anyhow, the game is fun. If they tweak and fix up the MP somewhat, it will be a really really good game. I already decided not to get Black Ops because I'm already playing mostly BF BC2, Halo Reach, Killzone 2, MAG and now MOH. I don't have time for COD anymore, its overplayed its hand for me, but maybe others like more of the same.
I love the game great story and fun online
The game is good and all the hate is from COD fanboys wich like we know they are a lot of COD fanboys. Its funy how bad review make sheeps not buy a game and good reviews make sheeps buy a game.
Started playing is, on Hard, at 10 A.M. yesterday...and finished at 4:30. That's 6.5 hours, for those that suck at basic math....so no, I was not impressed. It had it's moments, and as always the Frostbite engine kicks the COD engine in the nads....but I'd only give it about an 8/10, at best.
I was hyped for the MP since I love BF BC 2 but it turned out to be a crappy mess.
media fails like always. truth slips away from humanity the more the media gains control of the sheep minds.
Sheeps, in the end we are all sheeps until... Something happens, what? Time will tell...
just faux controversy.
