    You will love the crisp graphics and refreshingly exciting gameplay. You will love the constant action and atmospheric sound effects. You will grin like a Cheshire cat when manning machine-gun nests and spraying bullets in every direction.

    No surprises here. Presentation is handsome and the game is a pleasure to play. But haven’t we seen this far too many times already? [Apr 2007]

    Normally we don't mind short and sweet, but you could seriously finish the game in one long afternoon. Still, despite some frustrations, the game is mostly an intense, exciting, and worthy entry in the long-running series.

    In Medal of Honor: Vanguard there are no health packs anymore, you simply take cover and wait for your health to regenerate. Your companyIn Medal of Honor: Vanguard there are no health packs anymore, you simply take cover and wait for your health to regenerate. Your company mates seem to be shooting in thin air and not hitting any of the enemies. Luckily you don't need to heal them anymore as you had to do in the previous game European Assault.

    There is now the added ability of running by pressing the L2 button, which can be handy to get to a good place for cover quickly. Also you can find upgrades for your weapon in several places around the map.

    The graphics of this game are not much of an improvement over previous instalments. Houses seem empty without any details.

    The levels are quite easy, except for the last one which can be a pain in the butt. The multi-player mode has only 6 maps and they are really small. There is the usual death match and a few variations on capture the flag.

    I rate Medal of Honor: Vanguard with a score of 7 out of 10.
