Worth it for the controls,
This review is from: Medal Of Honor: Heroes 2 (Wii) (Video Game)As others have said, this is a fairly average WWII shooter which doesn't bring anything new to the table. What saves it, however, are the superbly implemented Wii controls. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into how the Wiimote can be used to simulate the realistic use of the array of weapons available.
These are often tried-and-tested and obvious, like the need to pump your shotgun after firing, whilst others go that bit deeper, like having to hoist the bazooka on your shoulder to fire it. That feels truly brilliant.
I didn't think the graphics were that bad. This was a fairly early Wii title and clearly the budget went into using the Wii controls for the weapons. For the most part it looks good, but then I guess it's relative to whether you're used to the likes of a PS3 or not, which I'm not.
Now the AI, on the other hand, is just terrible. The original Half-Life for PC, which came out 12 years ago, was lightyears ahead of the AI in this game, and there's really no excuse. The AI works on a "if you're there, we know about it" basis. No matter how few centimetres of your body are showing, they'll shoot you. Stealth? Surprise? Forget it.
This also renders sniping pointless. One early level sees you in a tower sniping at Germans far away below. But the second you lean out from the window just enough to get them in your sights they'll shoot you. It makes a mockery of the otherwise well-done "lean" feature done by moving the nunchuck whilst in aim mode.
In a nutshell, if you can get past the hideous AI and enjoy it for what it is, a WWII weapons simulator with interesting and well-done controls, then you'll like this.
