  1. Medal of Honor is more than just a reboot of a storied franchise. It takes the FPS genre to a whole new level.
  2. 81
    A new start of the franchise. This time the game is taking you to Afghanistan to fight against the Taliban. The singleplayer is way too short, but a cool one. Besides of that you can play in the addictive and great multiplayer.
  3. 78
    It is a good game, but not the great return we expected. The multiplayer is good but lacks something more to compete with the greatest ones. The single player lacks much more.

    While the multiplayer feels more like a justifying bullet point on the box for a full priced retail game, the single player experience is what makes this reboot shine despite its short length. Medal of Honor isn't something I consider a must buy but definitely deserves a once over.
  5. Whatever its bias or excisions, MOH rejects the sort of gung-ho globetrotting baloney seen in Modern Warfare, and makes an honest attempt not to trivialise the lives of US soldiers, creating an air of sober authenticity which is unusual among shooters.
  6. 60
    Combined with Danger Close's fixation on delivering an experience about a war that Americans are deeply ambivalent about, and multiplayer that remains likely to incite controversy about its content after players have moved on to deeper, more engaging multiplayer options, Medal of Honor is one of the bigger disappointments of 2010.

Great story in campaign mode,a bit short, but it left me wanting even more. The multiplayer follows the Bad Company 2 style but with an arcade feel that really fits perfectly. I'm really glad to see the MOH franchise return. I can't wait for the next installments, which I'm sure will surpass this great title. Expand

    there is something fishy going on here. this game should be praised on all levels for the orginality and substance that it brings to the warthere is something fishy going on here. this game should be praised on all levels for the orginality and substance that it brings to the war game scene. nobody likes change, but cmon, call of duty black ops better be brand spanking original or im going to be pissed, you can only ride the same train for so long until you run out of stations. its time to move on, move ahead and move foward, and the beacon showing us the way spells M.O.H. the singleplayer is not flawless, but no game in the history of game development ever is. There are a few texture pops, but no screen tears or signs that the console cant handle the engine, so all in all it runs smoother than the bonnet of a porsche. gameplay can only be described in one word, flow. i didnt fight my way through the maps i sort of flowed through them on a tidal wave of hail and bullets. there is sometimes so much going on it becomes very easy to die. much like a real war, it can sometimes take one very strategically placed bullet from and an advantaged position and your out of the game. This is the first realistic war game that doesnt bore with realism. Whenever theres a lull in the gameplay your always entertained with the spectacular atmosphere and surroundings. this game is drop dead gorgeous, always a beauty to look at from start to finish. i dont know what the sh!t people are talking about with these reviews. I have made an account just to write this review in hopes that people wont fall for this **** thats been cracking around metacritic and most reviewing sites. those poor buggers at danger close, putting in all this effort to completely rework the war franchise and medal of honour gets put down because lets face it, its medal of honour. I havent been thrilled like this with medal of honour since the days of frontline on the ps2, storming the beaches at normandy on that first level. Do you remember that feeling? that epic feeling? it got better with age.
    multiplayer is not cod. multiplayer is not battlefield 2 bad company. It is the best of both worlds. i sh!t you not, i started playing the multiplayer at around 10 pm, played a few rounds, got lost in the game, looked outside and it was day. this is addicitive be warned. the maps on dm are small and tight, making for some furious gameplay and run-and-gun action, and the conquest style mission mode maps are huge, i say again, by the power of greyskull, why is this game being flamed. do yourself an honour, by this game, it is well worth the money and will keep you more entertained than any other game you currrently have.

    I just don't see why people give such low scores... Is it because they are COD fans? whatever .... I think this is like Uncharted2 meets CODI just don't see why people give such low scores... Is it because they are COD fans? whatever .... I think this is like Uncharted2 meets COD MW2 ... It looks good and smooth and plays well ... the story grabs you So hey this is more of the same ... isn't each shooter more of the same?
    But the measure of realism has notched up some levels I think ... Just give it a chance ... and form your own opinion ....
    Just enjoy it!

I hate how it tries to impress you with the really high quality cut scenesThe graphics are kinda good for it's time, although not amazing. I hate how it tries to impress you with the really high quality cut scenes when the actually game play is not nearly as good quality. The shouting physics are good, but it's annoying how the snipers are really weak. I know it adds to the realism and that's a good thing but I don't like how you can't tell whether your actually hitting someone or not, (there are no cross-hairs like in COD). Aside form the negatives, the game play is fun and inciting. And the again the shooting physics are really well done, with a good realistic amount of kick-back and range of the weapons. The trophies available in the game are easy to achieve, but they take a while, which is nice, because most games have really hard to get trophies which makes the platinum seem impossible to acquire. The campaign is better than that in most FPS shooters, it has a great fell to it and it puts you right in the action. The multilayer is is also very fun and easy to get used to. The thing with the classes I don't like but aside form that, it's easy to rack up kills and rank up.

    So there are many good things about the game and not much to go wrong. I rated 8 because I felt would be a bit generous. Well worth the buy, (nowadays you can pick up a copy for like £10) so if you don't own it already then i highly recommend you buy it, Good game.

    EA LA has decide to reboot the forgotten Medal of Honor franchise, developing the campaign while DICE, the famed Battlefield developer createsEA LA has decide to reboot the forgotten Medal of Honor franchise, developing the campaign while DICE, the famed Battlefield developer creates the multiplayer for MoH. How does it turn out? Average. The campaign is forgettable, though it tries to be realistic, it's ultimately forgettable and average. The gunplay isn't very good either. Now, the meat of the game, multiplayer. It runs on the same engine as Bad Company 2, and holds some noticeable similarities to BC2, but it definitely feels different. Unfortunately, the multiplayer is fun in some areas, but falls short of being as good as BC2's. At least this game comes with early access to the Battlefield 3 beta, and that's the only reason you'd want to buy this game. Overall, MoH is a weak attempt to reboot the dead MoH franchise, that fails miserably. Don't buy this game. Expand

About the campaign, it gives you a fresh experience on a new battlefield, and the environment is very fulfilling as it shows a new perspective. The movements of the AI are very professional, and the sound is great as well. The missions are engaging and each one is different than the last, with different landscapes. Its different because you get missions where you're undercover, and missions where you are an all out ranger. The most disappointing, if only, thing about the campaign is its length. I was shocked to see that I finished the game on Hard as well on the second day of play time. It was really disappointing, and kept me wanting more. If you guys like following games like I do, I feel that you would be disappointed as well, since the game ends at a point where you just have to have more action. The multi player amounts nothing to COD style, and hands down, the COD mechanism is way better. The game play becomes increasingly repetitive. It is extremely rewarding to get the kill streaks, although they are all the same, but thats if you manage to get it by hiding from the millions of snipers! As others have said as well, I was extremely excited about the game, and I recommend it to those who wish to play a different landscape, and experience a wonderfully built campaign. However, the shortness of the campaign is a big disappointment, and multi player wont be as addictive as COD, at least in my opinion. I regard any game 6 and under not to be bothered with at all, and a 7 worth playing, but I've given it a 6 because of the campaign and the somewhat repetitive multi player. As a devoted fan of MOH since the first medal of honor, I had to buy the game since it was not a WW2 game, but I feel it has potential to be so much better. Expand

    Horrible. Same old recycled MoH singleplayer.
    Multiplayer: Tiny path maps = no tactics, No squad play, bunnyhopping and spawn killing
    Horrible. Same old recycled MoH singleplayer.
    Multiplayer: Tiny path maps = no tactics, No squad play, bunnyhopping and spawn killing everywhere. After all these years EA cannot or will not fix the infuriating bugs dating back to Battlefield 2 and before. Never has so much hype been lavished on a title that delivered so little.
