Where did the game go

Like most Medal of Honor games this one is no diffrent. The graphics are a little dated and do not stand up to COD 3. The airborne aspect is nothing but a let down, you drop down like a rock and get to do nothing with it. You can get a medal for it but thats it. With only 3 campaigns and maybe 3 or 2 levels per, its just not that good.

In the long run its good for an afternoon, and then thats it. If you play it straight threw, you'll be done in about 4-5 hours. I died once in the time it took me to beat it.

If you havce to buy a game, buy COD 3.

This game follows the same style and gameplay as the rest of the series, so if your a fan, you'll like it. However this game seemed very short to me. If you can get 4 people to do a deathmatch, it would probably have a little more replay value. Otherwise, I wouldn't suggust buying since you can probably beat the whole game in one sitting.

I have always loved the Medal of Honor series as a whole. Played them all...loved most, but never really had a bad experience with any of them. Until now. I had heard bad things about this one, but as a fan of the series I thought I should check it out. First off...what happend to the graphics? I had to check to see if I had a PSone instead of the PS2. They are that bad. No detail. Blocky objects. Most of the time it was hard to tell what was what just because of the lack of detail. After stomaching the graphics and pushing myself to play it. I suddenly realized the gameplay and AI are not any better. The enemies would literally run back and forth in a designed path. Even if you were right next to them. Not shooting...just running and crouching over and over. Several times I would shoot an enemy from a short distance with the sniper rifle only to see him still stand there. This would happen with various types of weapons. The controls also felt akward. The PS2 is not user friendly for FPS's, but this one really pushed that point. So if you can deal with poor controls, PSone graphics, poor AI, poor collision detection. You will also have to deal with FPS 101. Everything is by the books. Enemies stationed at various points behind explosive objects. (genius game design)Buildings with enemies hanging out of them that you can not hit. In fact, it was easier to kill an enemy with the melee attack then with a bullet. I always thought Rising Sun was the worse of the PS2 Medal of Honors, but EA decided to change that with one more attempt. At least they succeeded with something.
