  1. Medal of Honor Heroes proves that a good, albeit extremely short, first-person shooter can be done on the PSP.
  2. It’s a retread of familiar territory in every way, such that a game like this five years ago would have had me reeling, but now leaves me feeling flat.
  3. The single-player game is enjoyable but disappointingly short-lived. Thankfully, the impressive multiplayer options improve things considerably.

    Keep your expectations in check and you'll find it succeeds in being a decent facsimile of the PS2 games. Just don't be expecting much in the way of sweaty palms or a rapid heartbeat.
  5. The PSP isn't exactly overwhelmed with decent multiplayer FPSs, and while imperfect, Heroes does offer a much-needed online fragfest.
  6. 65
    Heroes is easily the worst MOH game yet, and yes that includes the PlayStation versions that came out over half a decade ago.

    If you've got perfect eyesight and a lover's touch on the action buttons there's plenty to get stuck into, particularly the accomplished multi-player mode. If not, then we suggest you stick to PS2. [Christmas 2006, p.101]
  8. There's not much longevity there, but it's a good ride while it lasts. The gigantor multiplayer matches should keep you and your friends emptying clips for a good while though, and that's exactly how it should be.

    Despite its faults, Heroes makes a decent showcase for PlayStation Portable’s power and does justice to the Medal Of Honor series. [Jan 2007, p.95]
  10. It's a perfectly serviceable war shooter offline, and turns into a strong SOCOM rival when you're gunning with 31 other players, which is just the sort of action the PSP has been missing.
  11. If you want a handheld shooter to play online (an MP-PSP-FPS, if you will) then this is a good choice. PSP controls are never going to be perfect, but they aren’t terrible here. If you want a single player game do not touch this with a barge pole, it's uninspired, boring and unbelievably dated.

    The multiplayer outweighs the single-player but having to look up and down with the face buttons means that you'll never be the crack-shot you can be with a second analogue stick. [Issue #147, p.78]

    Plus, the game looks and sounds solid, and has quick loads and 32-player online play. [Holiday 2006, p.83]
  14. 60
    MOH: Heroes falls prey to a bastardized control like almost all PSP first person titles.
  15. A solid if not heavily flawed title with the best online capabilities of any PSP title to date. So if you can get past the controls and the pacing this might be an ok purchase for you.
  16. Single-player is pitiful and multiplayer is substantial. A cautious thumbs-up then, but in a strange, bi-polar way - and only for keen fans of multiplayer shooters.

    Look past the tiresome graphics, repetitive story missions and you'll see one of the best first person shooter on the PSP. Unfortunately whenLook past the tiresome graphics, repetitive story missions and you'll see one of the best first person shooter on the PSP. Unfortunately when you review a game you need to review it as a package and so we can't forget it. Skirmish mode is a massive draw here. Difficulty here is a massive problem here(too easy). Story is great here. Graphics are **** here. Shooting has never been so good here. A good game here. Full Review »

Even thought EA shutdown the servers! It just looked great! But if the multiplayer didn't shutdown then I would rate a 10. Anyways, the game has campaign, skimish, and multiplayer of course. Campaign is good but I liked the Call of Duty Roads to Victory campaign better. Skimish is like online multiplayer but computer control which Roads to Victory doesn't have as well as online multiplayer (which I told you got shutdown by ea). But I think Medal of Honor is better than Roads to Victory! Gameplay: 9.5
    Sound: 8.2
    Graphics: 8.6
