Nov 1, 2012Medal of Honor is simply put, a great game. A lot of critics truly did not analyze all aspects of the title, but instead rated the title very harshly due to it's minor problems. I will agree that this game definitely feels as though it could've used a couple more hours in the oven, but the core gameplay, customization, sound, and visuals are so fantastic, that the minor issues and problems bear almost no weight. The story is pretty great, the CG cutscenes are beyond beautiful, the guns sound fierce and incredible, and the simple beauty that ensues whenever one of my stray bullets hits a piece of the enemy cover and dust and particles fly everywhere, is beyond incredible. The multiplayer is also a lot of fun! The customization is fantastic, with all of the different accessories that I have the option of adding to my gun, as well as how I can represent the Nation of my choice with my classes is also a welcome addition to the franchise! The support actions are fun to use and help your team. The ability to spawn on your fireteam buddy and even create a platoon of several fireteams is also fantastic. There are so many creative and new aspects of this game that make it a no-brainer buy.
I do however have to mention the cons, because that is only fair. The worst things that I can honestly think of when I really look into the game are four things. Sometimes there is texture pop-in when spawning, or at the beginning of the map, but when it happens it is quick and it isn't constant. I also noticed that 1 in about 50 matches I spawned in a place that was either behind or below the map. There is also some audio cut-in and out when reloading the weapon sometimes, but again, this is rather infrequent. The final con that I found really to be a problem, was the amount of hours that this game sucked out of my nights, getting lost in the incredible multiplayer! ;)
In short, I believe that Warfighter is a great game that shooter fans everywhere can really enjoy. There are some minor bugs and glitches, but they are not game-breaking, nor do I think that they wouldn't be able to fix them with a patch or two. PROS:
- Great Sound and Visuals
- Incredible Multiplayer Suite that will keep you coming back for more
- Incredible gun effects, bullet, effects, and overall high quality experience with weapons and reactions to them
- Minor texture pop-in in MP
- Minor sound cut-out issues (only noticed in MP)… Expand
Oct 26, 2012It's just a solid game, nothing more. The single player campaign is frustrating in several ways. Your compadres doesn't seem to help you at all, the levels are super linear and scripted beyond my mind. "Breaching" is really cool, but very "square-ish". The multiplayer though has it's moments, and at some points it's jawdroppingly fun.… Expand
Nov 6, 2012Mediocre game with just enough 'shooting and explosions' to make it tolerable for one play-through. I really like the first MOH reboot but this one had a story arc that absolutely went nowhere. Unnecessary confusing without any emotional payoff (you're pretty much placed in one scenario after another to shoot a multitude of baddies - rinse and repeat). Plus, what's up with all the door breaching??? I've never in breached that many doors in any FPS! The developers literally made it a bullet point feature in the game.
There were some very off putting technical issues with the game including not being able to advance in the single player campaign without triggering the proper sequence of events. The AI for enemies and allies both were broken (i.e. just stood there doing nothing while the target was 2 feet away; not moving up, clipping into walls, getting lost from traveling from one set piece to another, etc). Multi-player was a mess with hard to understand UI and ranking system. Map layout is very confining that funneled players into tight corridor zones where people would just camp. Hit detection is also suspect and uneven (sometimes takes 2 shots to take a guy out - sometimes a full clip wouldn't do it). Do yourself a favor and rent it first before putting money in to buy this. I had higher expectations for this game and it let me down big time. From all the competition of modern military FPS's on the market today (BF3, CODs, Bad Company, etc), you would think the devs would put more time to really make this shine from the rest. Alas, we get a product destined for the bargain bin in about 2 months.… Expand
