B.V.9My best first taste of the U3 Engine, spectacular gameplay and pace. Some folks watch war movies to immerse themselves in the environments of WWII and gain a new respect for the men who devoted their lives to the ouster of oppression and facism... This is the first WWII game that did the same for me. This game is certainly worth playing.… Expand
GabrielK.8This game is a unique experience for me. The Gameplay is awesome, you can go anywhere in the map and complete the tasks in any order and of course you can land in any place of the map too. Like others Medal of Honor in the series, this one has a great soundtrack. The graphics are excelent, the locations, the planes, the soldiers, everything is very well done. The bad thing with this game is the short campaign, only 6 missions so the game ends very fast. But the replay value in this game is high so you will want to do the missions again and again because is really fun and you can unlock upgrades for your weapons and win some medals to the collection.… Expand
RoleH5Another great flop from the once great moh franchise. Sadly this game should have been great with the freedom to tackle missions from many angles and vantage points, such as ledges and platforms.
However there are some major failings in this title. The first is the clumsy control system - it feels cumbersome and out dated.
Second is the pitiful hit box detection - you can see you have a clear headshot (even with a sniper rifle) and low and behold you still miss - often.
Third is the fact that the enemy soldiers all appear to be psychic. No matter where you attack or flank from, the enemy always know your there. And its only you they aim for - they will ignore your buddy in front of them to shoot at you even when your miles from them. Also they don't seem to have dodgy hit box problems - they will hit you even if its just your elbow toes poking out!
Finally the last problem is the sheer repetitiveness of the task in hand. Kill x number of enemy then blow something up. It seems only you were trained in explosives out of the entire US army in WW2.
On the plus side the graphics and sound are great, and there is some fun to be had out of exploring the maps, however you may find this very short lived entertainment once the real gameplay flaws kick in.
Really unless your a diehard WW2 junkie this game adds very little to the genre, and there are far superior FPS out there.… Expand
SimonF1Worst WW2 shooter ever!
Totally Unrealistic, Arcade and Naff!
Silly 'Shiny Buttons' and pathetic unrealistic upgrades...and what on earth is with the 'end of game' Nazi Thug who's impossible to Kill?
EA Brought us the fantastic FPS WW2 shooter series of MOHAA.. thanks for that Guys!... But sadly, you have completely lost the plot with this Joke of a game!...You started the Genre, but Ubisoft have totally killed you with their Hells Highway!!
Stick to Golf Sims!… Expand
