2.0 out of 5 stars Missed Opportunity Here, 17 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Medal of Honor (PS3) (DVD-ROM)
`Call of Duty'. There, I got it out of the way. `Medal of Honor', is the latest in the long running series and has more than a little in common with the sales behemoth simply known as `CoD'. EA have ditched the well worn World War 2 setting in favour of a modern conflict. This is no bad thing as WW2 games have been around for years and feel very samey. However, out with the WW2 bathwater also goes the gameplay baby of `MoH: Airborne', the most recent and best in the series for a long time. `Airborne' featured players parachuting in on a contained map and tackling a series of objectives in the order they feel best. What does `MoH' replace this with? Boring linear levels all set in different shades of sandy location or snowy location.

I have to admit to not being the biggest fan of `CoD', so a poor rip off of that game is never going to sit well with me. The shooting in `MoH' is decent enough and the various weapons on offer are good. However, the story and level design is mind numbingly dull. Go there, shoot them, move there, shoot that - rinse and repeat. This is bad enough in the `CoD' games, but at least they have the know how to mix levels up and feature epic set pieces. `MoH' just feels like one almighty slog to make your way through the game. The storyline may be interesting to some, but I found it the same old sub standard Tom Clancy nonsense that has dominated the genre for years.

As well as a lacklustre single player game, there is a multiplayer mode that gives second hand buyers the privilege of paying for. You do get a weeks trial of the game before you need to buy, or use the token found in the box. I bought this game new, played online and didn't bother to use the code - some "lucky" 2nd hand user can have it. The gameplay was the same frustrating die every 5 seconds deathmatch of `CoD', but will duller matches and fewer players.

If you are going to go up against something like `CoD' at least try to do something different like `Battlefield Bad Company 2'. Don't just copy it and produce a faded facsimile.

Isn't the multiplayer made by DICE the bad company people?
