    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.

    Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond has a few faults; however, the excellent campaign more than makes up for it with over-the-top scenes galore.

    A competent shooter in virtual reality. Somewhat oversimplified in the use of guns and vehicles but nonetheless more than worthy of your time, if you like shooting Nazis.

    Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond isn't the return to the series that I would have hoped. As a VR game is has a lot to offer, the gameplay is engaging, the missions varied, and both the single-player and multiplayer can be fun to play. However, the story is woefully mismanaged, with a cast of mostly unlikeable and unsympathetic characters - a tragedy when it comes with an incredibly powerful piece of work in the form of the gallery, a collection of documentaries and interviews with veterans of the war.

    At the end of the day, I want to play more Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, but the technical issues rear their head even on the most powerful hardware available. The campaign often falls on the wrong side of humor, but the gunplay is like nothing else. Multiplayer is an awesome added treat, though the bots are pretty dumb. It’s the very definition of a mixed bag.

    Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond is a disappointing return to the classic series. While its gunplay is satisfying, the moments where it shines are all too brief, stunted by cutscenes that force you to stand in place and spectate a story that rarely includes you or your character. On the other hand, the multiplayer has potential but is in need of more players and some balance tweaks. There are some incredible World War II games that are worth playing even today, but Above and Beyond falls short in far too many ways to be considered among them.

    The game is fun, extremely cinematic and a total bang for the buck with Multiplayer, gauntlets and the emotional documentary.

    It is not by all means a beast of the best VR title on a market.

Starting with a terrible pacing, the worst 2-3 hours in any VR FPS, MOHAAB evolves into something fantastic, action packed campaign with a rich and clever level design. After very long and varied campaign there is quite fast paced multiplayer and documentary mode. It is a great game, which needs some patience to bear a ruining beginning. But after that it pays off in every way Expand

It's not a Alyx but it's a Medal of Honor and it works really well. Btw... Multiplayer is little buggy but i'm sure they will fix it. U can also play with friends or alone vs bots. Thats great.

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. Expand

It's genuinely staggering how they thought this could compare to HL: Alyx. The gameplay is ho hum and the character models are like plastic dolls, genuinely terrifying a points. The graphics are like something out of 2004 despite the steep requirements. A diverse cast is rammed down your throat because ofc you're going to be working with the resistance a lot and as well all know in the revised history of WW2 there were literally women on the frontlines all the time.

    If you want something historically accurate or interesting, give this a miss. If you want a good shooter, install Pavlov. If you want a graphically impressive and immersive experience, install Alyx. This game fails to even just be fun like the Walking Dead game at least.

    It comes as no surprise that something like this was shat out by EA. Ignore the paid reviews, just go on youtube and start watching the campaign. It speaks for itself.
