    Though it's hardly sufficient to make you forsake home console warfare for handheld ops, and the dollars-per-hour ratio would give any gamer pause, Medal of Honor Heroes 2 boasts enough polish and design acumen to be worth an expensive few days on the front lines for those who simply want another WW2 shooter experience.
  2. The solid single-player campaign is over in the blink of an eye, but a strong online component makes Medal of Honor Heroes 2 worth a look for anyone who enjoyed the previous game.
  3. If you dig that sort of thing, Heroes 2 offers plenty of challenge, level variety and enough Nazi shooting to satisfy anyone who can deal with the controls of an FPS on a PSP. And if you don't like them, this isn't going to be the game that converts you.

    So simple that it's actually a bit limited, despite a substantial multiplayer offer. [Christmas 2007, p.123]

    Those after a single-player experience will see all the game has to offer in a day, while online gamers will find themselves coming back to Heroes 2 for some time.
  6. In the unlikely case that you're a complete newcomer to WWII shooters, Medal of Honor Heroes 2 is well worth a look. However, it doesn't add anything to the series besides another reliably decent episode and a generous multiplayer game.

    Stupid and, frankly, it's pretty good fun. [Jan 2008, p.113]

    If you want to take on the Germans once again on your PSP then Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 is a good choice.

    This is an action game with lots to get your teeth into, but you always feel reigned back by the fiddly controls. [Jan 2008, p.80]
  10. Playing an FPS on the PSP for the first time was a mix of fun action and occasional frustration, not only because of the controls, but because Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 offers a remarkably basic experience that hearkens back to the early days of shooters.
  11. Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 is just too little, too late, and released at the worst time imaginable. It is a game that was quite frankly doomed to be forgotten.
  12. The cramped controls, three hour campaign and an aged online component detract from an otherwise polished experience.

    It's not that the game is terrible -- heck, it's not even bad -- it's just that it fails to do anything to claw its way out of mediocrity.

    Sadly a significant step down from the first Heroes game, it was much less a sequel to the PSP exclusive and more a lazy excuse to bring 32Sadly a significant step down from the first Heroes game, it was much less a sequel to the PSP exclusive and more a lazy excuse to bring 32 player online multiplayer to more platforms - strongly evidenced by the fleeting experience the game now offers without it.

    Gone are the fun, digestable, wide open, vertical, non-linear multi objective missions where you defend footholds from all sides; instead it's an on rails affair more in line with the mediocre casual play of Vanguard. No more hunkering down strategically with a squad, conserving medkits and ammo as you go - in Heroes 2 you'll walk an admittedly straight line, stocked aplenty with gunplay dictated by an abysmal implementation of health regeneration. Failure is not an option either, if you happen to struggle at all be prepared to constantly respawn at checkpoints after a painfully scripted encounter tries your patience.

    If you've played the first MoH Heroes and you are expecting an offline skirmish mode with up to 16 bots and optional loadouts and outfits...you'll be disappointed as it's absent here. Not surprising though given little else resembles the original game as well.

    The pro's are, it's better than Vanguard and the developers managed to scrape together enough production value here to bid a fond adieu to this generation of Medal of Honor. It looks nice, partly due I'm sure to the confined environments, but still it looks nice and it runs well. It's a fun, relatively mindless WWII shooter for the PSP and it manages to paint a pretty picture, weapons sound and look great and there is plenty of action.

    for a first person shooter on the PSP - 9/10 judged with all the rest of the first person shooters on other platforms - 7/10 but to have a for a first person shooter on the PSP - 9/10 judged with all the rest of the first person shooters on other platforms - 7/10 but to have a portable version of a game like this is sublime. The graphics are sharp, gameplay smooth and controls, once mastered are quite playable, The world war 2 setting is overdone which is why we're all wondering why modern warfare was released on the NDS that can barely manage N64 graphics and has a demographic who won't want to play it. Modern warfare Heroes is stunningly beautiful and well developed, the graphics slightly exceed PS2 graphics, which is a miracle every time I look upon games like these - God of War - that can play on a portable device, stunning Full Review »
