    Not the best of the MOH series, nevertheless a good war yarn. Interesting foray into the Pacific War, albeit a tad unrealistic. The Japanese don't always Banzai charge, like shown in the game. Graphics aren't the best, but the compelling game play, plot, and weapons make it a vivacious roller coaster. Definitely worth a second glance.

    Despite featuring a whole host of cliches, including a numerous mounted turret sections in which the bad guys only appear once you man the weapon, Medal of Honor Rising Sun could have still passed as an adequate World War II FPS back in the PlayStation 2 days. However the terrible collision detection, that see's the player failing to hit enemies despite clearly lining up the reticule, makes it all but unplayable at times.

    One to avoid.

  1. A formulaic, by the numbers FPS with zero innovation, demented AI and a crushing lack of inspiration.
  2. It's not a bad game, but then again, it's not the be-all and end-all Pacific-theater FPS we expected. The primary emphasis on gloss and glamour over gameplay and challenge suggests that Rising Sun is geared more toward the tyro rather than the savant.
  3. Quite simply, the game offers nothing that you can’t get in the other games, and can’t have a better time getting in the other games.
