    Screw fighting, I surrender--anything to keep me from wading through this awkward war game. [May 2007, p.81]
  2. A bland, thankless and unconvincing entry in the annals of WWII games.
  3. Though you can get used to the sub-par controls, there’s still no real reason to play Vanguard, from the uninspired level design to the tired subject matter. Sure, it works on a basic level in that you shoot Nazis and they fall down. Beyond that, there isn’t much here to enjoy.

    Yep, if it's in this Medal of Honor, it's been in one before. Only this time out it feels more like leafing through a series of postcards sent from someone playing through a real Medal of Honor game.
  5. EA has shoe-horned a PS2 game onto the Wii with little thought for what the platform is actually meant to do, and lo and behold - the result is a distinctly below average, derivative, boring and badly implemented mess.
  6. So Medal of Honor: Vanguard is just a waste of time and money. A tedious plodding waste suitable only for those absolutely desperate for another first-person shooter to play on their Wii.

But as far as First Person Shooters on the Wii, this game is a step in the right direction (unlike Red Steel), Hopefully Metriod Prime 3 will set the benchmark. Full Review »

    Short game but well thought out control concept with the Wii system. would have liked at least double the amount of levels and co-operative Short game but well thought out control concept with the Wii system. would have liked at least double the amount of levels and co-operative play rather than death matches. all in all prob the best FPS on Wii atm but i hope that changes soon for all us who enjoy good gaming.
