Remembering Medal Of Honor: The Forgotten Master Of WW2 Games

Ibrahim from eXputer: "The Medal of Honor franchise was once the crown jewel of FPS war games, later defeated by the tides of time and poor development."

They tried to turn it into Call of Duty and it killed it off. They should reboot it and go back to it's roots. But they'd ruin it with online-only/multiplayer style bullshit so why bother? I have very fond memories of these games, but this series can stay dead as far as I'm concerned.

Was literally just thinking of this game the other week with the secret nut cracker mission and the shooting Bismarck dog lmao. Loved these games as a kid

I wish they’d remake warfighter

Strictly for the campaign

I have fond memories of playing the Medal of Honor Breakthrough MP Demo. It had two maps and custom servers. Living on campus, I had it downloaded on one of the PC Lab servers so I could access it on any computer at the university. Joined a clan and made friends that I still keep in touch with today.

Medal of Honor 2010 was a good start for a modern reboot. The campaign was fantastic. Multiplayer wasn't great but that's DICE's fault. I'd love if they went back to that game and gave it a proper sequel.

I actually really liked the multiplayer in MoH 2010. Battlefield gunplay on small maps. I would love to see a Rising sun remake, the opening scene would be amazing to see.

SonyStyled523d ago

I enjoyed the multiplayer of MoH 2010. It felt like battlefield 3 in a way. The multiplayer in Warfighter was also pretty good but the campaigns single player story was not appealing with the whole family cutscene thing. Gameplay was fun though. MoH to me is the PS1/2 titles and I don’t expect to see a WW2 MoH after the last Call of Duty’s

PS1 MOH 1999 and 2000 (Underground) and Allied Assault PC is my childhood.. it's still soo good and it holds up. Not to mention Michael Giacchino's soundtrack is one of the best video game soundtracks ever made. Even if you weren't born in early to mid 90's go listen to the main theme of Allied Assault and you will be overloaded from nostalgia.

I miss this franchise a lot.

Iceball2000523d ago

I’ve always thought that MOH and Battlefield should be separate…

Have MOH as the full fledged single player with an amazing store and whatnot. And a basic multiplayer just to have multiplayer. Sorta like how the MOH reboot was.

And then have BF as the full fledged multiplayer with all effort put into that and ditch the single player. Maybe add Commander back in.

Only in a perfect world.

Oh man medal of honor on pc was awesome back in the day. Multi-player was fun. Joined my first clan on medal of honor. Definitely deserves a comeback. But needs to be on the same level or surpass COD. Since it came out before that ip in 1999 to avoid embarrassment.


The guys who did Allied assault are the one who created call of duty. They're back at EA, Vince something

MadLad523d ago

I'll be the weird guy in the room and say I actually loved Warfighter. I thought the squad mechanics made it stand out a bit and thought the shooting felt good. Put a lot of time into the multiplayer.

15 PS1 Games That Hold Up Today

Blocky graphics, pre-rendered backgrounds, and controls that could not make sense of a 3D world were all hallmarks of games on the original PlayStation console.  Here are our picks for PS1 games that actually stand the test of time.

One of the best, if not the best, generations for gaming. So many brilliant games came out during this: Parasite Eve, Resident Evil, Alundra, Xenogears, Final Fantasy VII, and I’ll be here all day naming them off.

Nowadays, nobody would take a risk on 75% of the IPs on that console. I’ll tell you this, there was no damn remasters on that system. Every game was something unique.

Jiub917d ago

I doubt Azure Dreams, Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, or Parasite Eve would get made today because of how risky they look

CrimsonWing69917d ago

I actually have those games! Seriously, just mentioning them is making want to play them. Vagrant Story was another game that I really liked. Man, there’s just a ton. Tactics Ogre and Valkyrie Profile are some others. I really these generations could be more like this, I think after Xbox 360/PS3 era it’s been harder to find games that were as uniquely imaginative. Most, not all kind you, but most games kind of feel similar you know? Like it’s an open-world game or an FPS or some free-to-play game. Now, there are gems for sure, but it’s nowhere near like how it was during the PS1 and PS2 days.

Inverno917d ago

Considering that literally non of those games have had reboots, or sequels made these last 3 HD generations leaves little room for me personally to doubt just how sucky the industry has turned into. It is creatively starved

FinalFantasyFanatic917d ago

I would love if they got ports or remasters though, I never got to play some of those as a kid and as an adult, I'd love an easy, legal way of playing through all of those games (I'm sure I've got most of the Legacy of Kain games on PC though).

Knightofelemia917d ago (Edited 917d ago )

Parasite Eve, Dino Crisis, RE2, RE3, Legend of Dragoon, Chrono Cross, Xenogears are all my favorites. Glad to see Legacy of Kain get mentioned. FF7 does get the love and its a great game I love it but I Like FF8 more and I know many people who will also drop FF9 into this list as well. MMX4 I prefer on the Saturn myself don't know what it is but I preferred MM games on the Saturn. PS1 was my second choice when the 32bit era landed on gamers after the fall of the Saturn PS1 had the library and the developers.

NecrumOddBoy917d ago

A lot of these games do not hold up as well as you’d think. MGS is pretty archaic for newer gamers to grasp. It’s not as bad as RE or Silent Hill but it still plays rough. I think out of the PSOne generation, the most preserved games are 2D like SOTN, Rayman, and my favorite Oddworld games. I agree that FF Tactics is definitely a lasting format.

LucasRuinedChildhood917d ago (Edited 917d ago )

What newer gamers have you actually talked to about this?

I let one of my friends play MGS1 on a PSTV I got for free ages ago, and he loved it so much that he begrudgingly bought a PS3 to play the rest of the series (justified it slightly through platinum hunting, haha). His first console was a PS2. I personally don't think that any of the games you listed would have the same effect on most people.

We were never able to get into the pre-RE4 Resi games though so there's some truth to that. In an era where loads of popular indie games are top down or isometric. the idea that MGS1 is hard to grasp for newer gamers genuinely doesn't make sense. It's the most straightforward game of the series in both gameplay and story. The only thing holding it back are its graphics. It's still great.

AK09917d ago

Not a new gamer but I never played MGS1 back in the day, my first MGS game was 3 on PS2 in 2006 and I loved it.
I tried to play MGS 1-3 before MGS:V release in 2015 but I couldn't, they were outdated, the camera and control are terrible by today's standers, to me at least, so yeah there are people who won't enjoy playing old games including MGS.

TheHan917d ago

Soul reaver really? Blood omen is much better even if it was a PS1 title.
