The thing i like about this game is it`s mission design. All of the levels are so unique and unforgetable.
The AI is better than most of the modern games and actually takes cover and kills people you didn`t even see. The only problem is resoultion. You need to edit **** if your resoulition is higher than game supports.
Not only a technically excellent shooter, the ambiance and level of detail is just plain amazing...[yet] The opponent AI was way too sensitive, as enemies can spot you in heavy cover from quite a distance, making the idea of quietly sneaking up on your foes an impossibility. This was the biggest downfall of the game.
At a time when shooters seem to be evolving into two distinct kinds of games--either focused on realistic tactics or on arcade action--Medal of Honor represents the absolute best that action-packed, event-driven shooters have to offer.
A snipers best dream and worst nightmare. You can be walking through the forest and all of a sudden a shot rings out and you get hit. I found a couple of times where I could not see the sniper because he was hiding behind a tree.
Was much better in my childhood.
The first part of the game seems to be fine, maybe even good, but farther you go - worse it gets.
Enemies seeing you through obstacles, shooting you directly and instantly from big distances, some levels contains enemies who is merging with background and can be barely seen. AI is pretty dumb and unpredictable or fully predictable from time to time.
I disagree with the current reviews. This game was too difficult. I found in many later missions that I got stuck multiple times on the medium difficulty. Some maps I simply could not play - even on easy diffuclty. That is weird because I consider myself an excellent FPS gamer: been playing them for years. I was doing well and then, suddenly, I was stuck for like an hour in the same thing fight, die, respawn and do it again. The graphics are not suitable for this game, as it is undoubtedly an older game from the early 2000's (I write this review much later in 2022). On a sour note, I bought the game and found that the multiplayer was discontinued for this video game. Also, this game has D-day, but it is way too hard. I mean, I get it that D-day was a hard thing for our troops to do, but I died too many times on that beach. The game developers needed to make it at least passable for me on the medium difficulty level. Even easy difficulty was way too hard to make it up that beach ultimately. Once I breached the beach sand walls, I gave up because I could not get past some **** sharpshooters. I have played FPS since I was 13, so it is not excusable to make a game too complicated - it makes me think they didn't properly test it.
The mechanisms were suitable in the game, and the action of shooting and aiming were 10/10. It had a good storyline and made me want to complete missions. Medal of Honor: Allied Assault was engaging. I had to look and see where the enemy was during night missions. It was exciting too, sometimes enemy would come out of nowhere, and it was full of surprises. The video game is really good that it had a single player, because I live in Hawaii, and we have high ping numbers out here. So, the loss of a multiplayer was not such a big deal.
I am ok with playing old games and imo judging them for todays standarts is not good. Bul game is so hard to the point its not enjoyable to me, Its not terrible its good but not good for me, frustration that i got isn't near equal to the enjoymet i got.
That's where it all started bros.
The great downfall of FPS into Modern Military Shooters for dumb masses. That's it. If you want to know why does nowadays shooters mostly **** and go by one model of dragging player along a path - launch AA and dive into the sea... No, a sewer canal of bad ideas that ruined shooters forever. It's all here. Compass, abysmall level design, and dragging you by your hand.
There are medpacks and it's not too easy (but it ain't hard, by no means), sure; but they were quickly eradicated to make shooters compelling to 8 years olds, who forced their parents to buy crappy modern military shooters.
That was the moment shooters went downhill pretty fast.
