    No real improvement over the last version of Medal of Honor.

    This game has amazing graphics...but on the other hand it's to short and there's not that much of an improvment from the last game.

    The worst graphics for any game i've played not even worth the money. EA did better on the MOH PC games.

    It is a cool game because you can play 2 players in game mode....but other then that it is just an Ok games....it is not worth spending the money on it.

    I loved MOH Frontline and was equally psyched for this one. Not only did this game take a long time to get into, but it was over before I blinked. THe shooting is not accurate (I.e. when you hit someone in the head, they don't drop). Save your money for Max Payne 2 if you want to play a FPS.

    Way too short and easy.

    I loved this game back in the day, but going back on it, it was just an okay experience. The AI was good for its time, and the shooting mechanics brilliant, but the overall experience was mediocre. However, if we include the storyline in this equation, the game was oustanding.

  1. Feels a bit like Michael Bay's Pearl Harbor in that an attempt to make an epic WWII Pacific Theater experience results in a product with brilliant touches mixed with mediocrity.

    On retreading the levels enemy attacks become predictable puppet shows, with mad-eyed soldiers lining up to get killed exactly where they did many times before. It's the kind of repetition more commonly associated with lightgun games these days. [Christmas 2003, p.109]
  3. You can, in practically one extended sitting, blow through the entirety of this dumbed-down, bloodless, sanitized version of America's hard-fought victory. [Dec/Jan 2004, p.88]
