Respawn Entertainment nails everything that makes VR so special and wraps it in a fun shooter with a narrative style that doesn’t take itself too seriously and offers simple but solid multiplayer options. Add to the mix a true gem with real historic value like the Gallery, and you can hardly ask for more.
Really, really fun, one of my favourite VR games.
Although inconsistent, the combat is satisfying and the variety of what you do throughout the campaign is remarkable, driving a tank, skydiving, storming Omaha beach, shooting enemies while skiing, it's just plain fun.
Well-paced and rather long, Medal of Honor: Above & Beyond tastes like a good B series: the actors are not very good, the German accent is approximate, some sets are in cardboard boxes, but we take real pleasure in wreacking havoc on enemy lines.
It’s clear that Respawn still has the chops to make a quality Medal of Honor game. There’s a lot of heart here, and an attention to detail that must be admired. With that said, it’s clear the studio had troubles accomplishing its goals in VR – and the result is a curious VR experience that’s worth experiencing, but equally is nothing like a VR system seller. It stands strides behind Alyx – but then again, so do most VR games.
If players give Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond some time to build up to the really good stuff, they will find a title that's not only educational, but, at times, incredibly endearing. For fans of the series with access to a VR headset and plenty of hard drive space, this is a no-brainer.
Medal of Honor Above and Beyond returns to Oculus Quest II, and the challenge is great on this small autonomous headset. And unfortunately, he doesn’t get it too. The technique is often faulty, with jerky animations of the sets and characters, which can become unpleasant over time. And if we set the graphics settings to the maximum, the game almost starts to row. In addition, the single player campaign, made up of small scenes of a few minutes, offers a false rhythm, with a lot of rather long dialogue, with a French accent in overplayed English, between two sometimes short fights. If some spectacular passages stand out, it is difficult to get excited about its events. A survival mode and a multiplayer mode complete the picture, but the rather stupid AI of the enemies does not make it all essential. It's a shame, because in terms of interaction, it was pretty well done, with pretty cool weapon handling. On recent releases, prefer Resident Evil 4 VR, by far.
This game is one of the funnest games I have ever played. It starts off slow in order for people to get their VR legs and then takes off through land, air, and see battles. I completed Half-Life Alyx and played several other FPS games like Contractors, Onwards, and Zero Caliber and I enjoyed this game more than any of them. It has a great immersive that provided me hours of excitement and replayability.
Note I just built a top of the line PC specifically for VR gaming and those with systems that to meet the recommended hardware requirements may not have the same exceptional experience that I had.
I liked the first Medal of Honor in PS1 and loved Medal of Honor Frontline on PS2 (it was the best). However this game is a love-hate. I think they tried to do such a big game that they failed. It feels like unfinished, may be if it was been less ambitous and more cared it would have been a superb game.
Regarding to shooter games, i think Half Life Alyx is still by far the best VR game and Vertigo the second.
PROS: Wonderful and detailed enviroments + Very satisfactory use of the weapons + Long and much varied game + Great music that fits in the adventure
CONS: Too many scenes where you only stand up and see + Climbing is failed + Weaponry managed is confussing + Something is wrong with the height (i'm very short and it doesn't happen to me in other any game) + Sniper mode gets black screen and it doesn't have zoom (so you see the enemy at the same distance as the eye) + Pick up things are failed and some things are getable but not others + Hands go through walls and things + Etc...
So terribly disappointing. The game could do so much better, but it's laggy, buggy and very repetitive. You basically shoot, run, shoot run, collect something, shoot run. I finished it, but it does not deserve anything above 5. The graphics are very mediocre, a lot of weird faces. Overall, it looks very amatour.
Quite offended by this game. Devs do realize that there is no reason for pandering in a VR fps game that also supposed to be somewhat historically accurate and (or) authentic? Alphabet people would not be able to afford this game price tag + required hardware price tag considering they should also somehow be interested in both VR and first person shooters? Disgraceful.
Minority propaganda aside, this is rather underwhelming VR title on its own. It would've been great in like 2016 (maybe would've include less agenda too) but after other more mature VR experience, some of which are indie, this one feels particularly bad. "Victory" every screen 5 minutes? Rather annoying.
Also, buggy and unoptimized mess sometimes, dead on arrival multiplayer, 150+ gb of storage
Refund and forget.
My God, how terribly executed. Apparently some devs were invited to learn how to implement basic VR functionalities, oddly making the same mistakes others have learned to evade in 2016. Not even recommendable for VR enthusiasts that currently have nothing to play. Worst thing: $60/€60 for this title is not even just impertinent, it's entirely delusional.
SummaryMedal of Honor: Above and Beyond is an action-packed and incredibly immersive VR experience set in World War II, where you step into the boots of an agent of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in war torn Europe. A deep single-player campaign takes you through historic events on land, air, and sea, sabotaging Nazi bases, subverting e...
