    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.

    Bland plot (which prevents Above and Beyond from being a truly magnificent experience) and somewhat cartoonish characters did not spike the game’s guns. I was impressed with the scope and details of the environments, and gunplay was awesome because the weapons have a nice kick to them. If only the controls were better… I lost count of the situations when I picked up a wrong object or ended up giving myself an injection instead of throwing a grenade. [02/2021, p.62]

    The essentially well-made VR shooter borrows from the Medal of Honor classics, yet shows flaws in its execution.

    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 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.

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

The story is nice, the gameplay couldn't be more fantastic and different from each other. I played the story to the 5th chapter and so far it was amazing. The only things that bother me are the bugs. Sometimes your game crashes, somtimes the game doesn't work for some reason and it takes a lot of space if you play the oculus quest 2 version (64 or so GB version). But all in all its great. (BTW I played it on oculus quest 2) Expand

    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 thinkI 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...

    The Forest Chase mission is the worst in performance. There are only 1 youtuber who showed this mission and presented the same problems.The Forest Chase mission is the worst in performance. There are only 1 youtuber who showed this mission and presented the same problems. Others only showed missions that flow well in performance.
    Waiting for Respawn and Oculus to fix the $ 60 I spent on an average game. NOTE: I already touched the GameUserSettings.ini file and even setting the settings to 0, the game still has problems in this Forest Chase mission and others.
    It is clear that it is poorly developed.
