what is this junk, blogs are not allowed
It only had more than a half million pre orders just in north America, will probably sell 2 million worldwide in the first week alone.
i played it for an hour on my pc... bad i won't even finish the single player. ill try multiplayer tomorrow
I went right to the multiplayer. Plays like a BC2 expansion, as expected. Can't complain for the price I got it, free thanks EA STORE screw up.
No! I never was interested in the game.
gotta say, the mp is a bit fun, but overall i expected a bit more from this game. i guess its my fault for getting too hyped up.
If blogs aren't allowed then 80% of N4G has to go. I'm getting my copy tomorrow. Can't wait. The multiplayer is what I'm most interested in but the SP seems solid as well.
I feel I must warn people.. Medal of honor shares none of its mechanics in common with call of duty or halo.. Controls are near identical as far as inputs but the actual mechanics of approaching the game is much different.. First of all those lone wolf modern warfare players are going to be chewed up and spit out.. YOu cannot run buck wild and get all kinds of kills.. YOu will be dropped, the maps are huge and there aren't alot of free standing structures to hide inside of... You have to move from rock to tree to hill etc and constantly be aware of your surroundings.. Once I realized this the game was a blast and I'm hooked.. Its far more balanced and not as glitchy or broken as modern warfare 2... Love the mp...
^^ Who do you want to sell this to, these days? Me and you, but not the other 10M shooter fanatics, I guess. Petty, this.
Sounds a lot like BFBC2. Just with smaller maps and non-destructible buildings. I don't see the selling point of this game.
While the game is made by dice and it has the frostbite engine just like bfbc2 it still manages to obtain its own identity.. Sound wise this game has no parrallel but the controls are tight and the tension and adrenaline rush that you get running from cover to cover trying to flank or gain a better vantage point while bullets zing around you and explosions echo all around is just something to behold... I dont know I like this better then bfbc2 to be honest.
i bought it, i don't let others decide for me what games to play.
Im with you on that one.This is a great game and I couldnt stop playing at all when I picked it up.Great teamplay great SP cant go wrong with this game from the 9hours straight I played of it.Dont let people decide for you just buy because you want to.COD clone not in this lifetime.It has an identity of its own.Good job Dangerclose and Dice.
none of your bezzwax<<<<LOL
Intriguing story and a nice change of pace is why I bought it.
I have a friend that picked it up, and it is having a blast with it. He told me the game is really good, definitely not a 6/10.
No one picked up Medal of Honor. /s (FFS how about a properly structure question once in awhile)
Smart people probably didn't buy MOH.
no stupid fanboys didn't buy MOH. everybody else who loves games did.
it's a fucking clone, man. It's like if J.K. Rowling's rival said, "Oh yeah, you're writing another Harry Potter book? Well, I guess we'll see how well it stacks up to my Barry Rotter book." Let's not argue over who would and wouldn't buy the game. Let's just say that EA wasn't making a game for gamers. It was making a game to counter Call of Duty, and that's why it looks so similar. I might not like Cod, but Cod has brought a lot of features to the table that other games will copy. Medal of Honor is one of those games. A gamer might as well stick with Cod.
actually i think its more like those of us that have taste in games, and already own 50,000 fps that do the same fkin thing didnt buy the game
I love games, but I didn't buy MoH. I own Bf:BC1, BF:BC2, CoD4, CoD:WaW and MW2....so give me one good reason why I should buy the new MoH, and tell me what is so different about it.
Medal of honor is far from a COD clone.. You cant lone wolf it and run around knifing everyone.. My favorite part of medal of honor is just how dislike cod it is.. NO perks means no unbalanced gameplay. It requires a tremendous amount of strategy and skill to be good in medal of honor and I love it.. You don't have a legion of trigger happy school kids that have ultra high hand eye coordination winning... If medal of honor is similar to anything I would say its closer in setup to M.A.G. but much more polish.. If you like socom or m.a.g. then you will love medal of honor.....
@BattleAxe: Will be the same reasons people in here will praise CoD:Black Ops as the second coming of christ. No matter if you'd seen it all. And I can guarantee, this game won't be getting a single 6/10. See, I am not the slightest interested in Black Ops and I haven't seen videos nor followed up on the game, and yet I am convinced this will be the result. How would I even know with out looking at the game? CoD gets a free ride, I'll place a bet on that. And why people ignore BC2/Vietnam if you like BF so much? Another fps. I like Dice's MP, though. I'm a bit tired of shooters, though. Haven't touched one in month.
Medal of Honor's a clone, eh? Medal of Honor: release date - November 11, 1999 Call of Duty: release date - October 29, 2003
I'm waiting for Black Ops for my modern FPS fix.
So we're calling the Cold War Era (end of WWII to end of Vietnam) modern? Does that make MOH Ultra Modern?
but I heard Black ops will have GunGame mode. GunGame is the most fun mode in FPS games IMO.
If people want a closer to real life military operations FPS game, then they'll pick up MOH.
I did and I'm enjoying it very much, it's not as smooth as call of duty and is miles behind bbc2 (multiplayer wise) but it is fun and that's what I look for in games :)
I for one PICKED UP my MOH! And I am proud of it. :D
It's pretty good and the MP is Fun.
Yes. Thank you Toys'R'Us for your b2g1 deal. I just look at it like getting 3 new releases that I normally wouldn't get until the price is reduced,
and so have a bunch of people on my friends list, so far after 6 hours of online play im enjoying it very much. I don't get the hate for this game. Then again people hate on everything.
I just freaked out with the reviews canceled it and pre ordered fallout new Vegas any body recomend anything ? Should I still get it or just get fallout
Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 ;)
Get it.. Reviews are unreliable as they are ultimately weighted by someones bias.. No matter how professional they try to be a reviewers bias still affects their review.. Trust me medal of honor is a great game and you will find yourself sinking alot hours into the multiplayer...
Gamefly my friend....Gamefly....
Dude me too! got all shook up with the reviews and decided to get fallout instead, but I still plan on getting this eventually. If you really want MoH then by all means get MoH, don't let other people decide it for you.
Being a fan of the BFBC series,this game left me cold. As stated in a post above the game was "hyped" way to much. After pre-ordering it from the publisher to gain access to the beta and playing it ,I found it to be highly unenjoyable! I didn't cancel my order in hopes that the released game would be improved after reading others comments about the beta. But that hasn't been the case. The good news is the Gamestop will give me the full price store credit if its still unopened. So I will cut my losses and take the store credit towards something else. The other lesson I learned has been if a beta sucks,so will the released game! and that I will NEVER order direct from the publisher again not matter what they gaive you free with it!
moh is fun, ive played halo and mw2, i perfer played moh, whats funner is that im on top every game.... Good game, too bad too many people arnt giving this game a chance
i kinda feel bad for that gamestop employee, i wonder if anybody showed up at the midnight launch or if she was there all night for nothing. i know i would be pissed off and sleepy
When I heard about this game I said it was a day one for me after loving bc2 but from what I have heard about the beta and the reviews I don't know if I should get it. I got mw2 on day 1 n hated the game so not sure if ill like MoH plus with me already getting f1 fifa plus fable 3 rb3 gt5 forma ult and kinect out soon going to have far too may games to try n play. What you think ppl should I wait unti next year 2 pick up this game?
I bought Halo: Reach, I have MoH on ore order for Friday and I have Black Ops pre ordered. I'm a gamer, I enjoy first person shooters on PC, PS3 and 360 so why not buy them? Let the fanboys squabble and the real gamers game on!
Its a fun game don't let reviews sway you the MP is strong the single play needs a little tweeking but all around its a pretty solid game. I'm enjoying it
Got it yesterday, played mp for 40 minutes.. Bad. Selling it today.
Instead of buying them. Have fun getting only 60% of your money back.
Is number 1 on Amazon right now. http://www.amazon.com/compu... 360 version is 2nd. Its clearly selling.
thi just goes to show that CoD is the new cool thing now mind you i bought and am happily enjoying MoH rite now i bet that if you asked 99% of CoD players what MoH was or anything about the series they would have no idea wat your talking about
I guess I'll pick it up some other time this month is just full of gaming win! And bias reviews
Contrary to popular belief the game is doing quite well. Its not trying to be Cod or BC its Medal of Honor. No perks, No dog tags, No noob tubes just straight skill. Fun game to play.
MOH has noob tubes though...
There are noob tubes just there is not any explosive enhancers so they do a near zero % damage.
@the_only...I agree the noob tube is more for providing that Oh shit moment and making opponents move out of cover/stop sniping. You can't dominate a match and kill 5 people within 300ft like in some other games.
I'm gonna go ahead and put this on my summer drought of 2011 along with dead rising 2,enslaved,lords of shadows and dragon age 2 dear god its gonna be a good drought next year
