Wow... that review was possibly the most negative I've read here, bar the Silent Hunter one :p

Huh. Sounds just like the Bland of Bland with extra Bland I expected it to be.

Cheers, Bit-Tech, for reinforcing my beliefs with a nice review!

Turret sequences need to die in a fire. They were the bane of Red Dead Redemption as well.

I really hate FPS games atm. I full believe a game should stand up on merit of single player alone yet every FPS game of recent is an "online mulitplayer experience" with single player bolted on. Developers are spending no time fixing storylines or offering up challanges. I miss the days of timesplitters where you had random challanges or half life where you had an epic story. How many more online based shooters can this market take?

Game of the Year

The alternate opening to this article was a long-winded apology for the fact that I ran out of synonyms for 'bland' and 'boring as shite' at around halfway through the second page

"Of course, to make the AI actually do that then you’ll need to kill everybody yourself beforehand, as the NPCs are apparently incapable of doing anything for themselves."

Isn't that the same with almost all games? And the same old problem that every NPC only seems to attack you. And its pretty much the same as COD, waves and waves of enemies until you take that extra step.

I'll be buying this for MP atleast.

Just a quibble, tracers are still real bullets that kill the target, they just have an additional chemical compound to show the path of the soldier's fire. Perhaps you meant blanks?

pwnt.

This review confirms what I had been expecting from this game and I find it satisfying to see it getting some strong criticism.
Now if only the unwashed masses would actually pay attention and comment with their wallets instead of mindlessly buying whatever crap the publishers serve up to them we'd really be getting somewhere..

It'll be funny to see how many 9/10 reviews it gets from the usual industry sycophants elsewhere.

"It’s all a load of rubbish, really, all of it. The action, the graphics, the stability, the marketing push that has seen EA label the Medal of Honor series as a way to honour the armed forces, the spelling of ‘Honor’; it’s all rubbish. "

I had to do a double take on the first few lines as I don't think I've read such a vitriolic review on here before...

Fair enough, if it's crap then it's crap... I suspected as much anyway.

I'd agree on the point that the genre is tired and in need of something new.

I have my doubts the latest implementation of "modern shovelware" will be particularly impressive, as well.

The whole games industry needs a kicking, more change is needed, every game is like every other.

Are we stuck?

I have to say that I'm personally sick to death of all these samey me-too military-themed first-person shooters; once you've played one you've pretty much played them all. The single player component is frequently short but forgettable and most of the effort goes into the multiplayer, which I have little interest in anyway as they're all the same thing; run around a constantly repeating map, shoot people, die, respawn and repeat until session is over. I can't think of anything more boring.

The summing up paragraph of that review says it all really. I had no interest in Medal of Honor (or Call of Duty: Black Ops for that matter) before I read the review and I have even less after! I'll save my money for more entertaining and interesting games, thank you, EA.

I find it funny that EA managed to dupe you guys who ordered it.
Guess money isn't that tight after all.

Aside from the occasional flare of swiftly ignored brilliance, we've been stuck since the mid-90s.

Huh? Reading a review of Medal of Honor has further put you off buying Call of Duty Black Ops, how did you come to that conclusion?

Possibly, just maybe, some people might like this game? You can't expect the greatest game ever to be released every video game release.

For example minus ME2 and DA, Metro 2033 was by far one of the best games I've played this year, but if i looked at it from a reviewers prospective i wouldn't have given it more than 6.
cheeriokilla 12th October 2010, 18:06 Quote
There's no mention of props being brought from Battlefield Bad Company 2 (like the bradley apc's, no redesign whatsoever) and the fact that BFBC2's multiplayer is by far superior to MoH's and it's @ 30$ on Steam, compared to the 60$ MoH

Yep and yet it still gets a 6. Im going to have to assume that the scale actually only goes from 6 to 10 because nothing ever gets less than 6. I suppose publishers would stop sending games if reviewers marked them down too much though /cynicism
Canon 12th October 2010, 18:27 Quote
Certain sites *cough* GMG *cough* seem to be giving off the impression that the negative reviews are not at all deserved, being one of the many that wasted my time downloading the beta client I can safely say that they are very much deserved, miserable awful trash. It's a shame really because I was quite looking forward to it some time ago, although having EA/DICE 'liked' on FB was a bad idea, the absolute CRAP they were trying to spin off about this title was worse than I had ever seen.

Joe has more or less said everything I wanted to say about it but in a more literate and family friendly way.
