I haven't been this disappointed since Ghost Recon. in the campaign mode first level I zoomed in only get a glitchy blank white page. Having options for breach seems cool at first then frustrating. Rent don't buy The 2012 MOH remains one of my fav. FPS despite it's low popularity I appreciated the attempt at authentic war and the level playing field multiplayer which took away the edge for newbs who can't hang with a pistol.
I have to agree with all of the critic reviews, this game was rushed and poorly made. Games Like Ghost Recon Future Soilder and Killzone 3 have proven that is possible to have AI squadmates that actually can shoot the enemy and be proactive. So many times in this campaign that took me 3 hrs on hard I would be killed because my squad AI would stay at the checkpoint and not move until I killed all enemies in that section. The attempt and bringing humanity was completely lost on characters you didnt spend enough time in a story with to care about. Personally if you want me to care about a video game charater I have to spend time playing them like RDR or Mass Effect. In my opinion they would have been better making at least a COD quality campaign instead of trying to feed on patriotism of people saying this was made with the insight of real opreators
Just finish Medal of Honor: Warfighter's campaign. The experience felt unfinished and unrealized. It was like watching the movie Act of Valor: cool but not awesome. There is certainly fun to be had but compared to the fully developed plot of the Modern Warfare games and its excellent predecessor, the new MOH is a let down.
Its a story of close warfare. The combat in most the missions, with the e
xception of a weakly delivered sniper mission, happens at arms length. Tight room after room needing clearing and while it maybe the spot lite moment of the Special Warfare community the endless stacking on doors and bullet time clears dont offer enough variation to be interesting.
The most interestingly different missions were well done car chases. Which is problematic if the best executed part of your modern military shooter is a well done driving level.
In a game with few hero moments, the player is often reduced to a spectator when they do happen. In places where a quick time button mash would have been welcome, or at least obvious, I watched the hero on screen being awesome while I did nothing.
The best campaign in a shooters is Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. It shocked and intrigued players with its taught story of a hidden near war in the Balkans. The Pripyat sniper mission may never be topped, the C-130 devastation mission set the a bar so high for on the rail action that 5 years later no game has surpassed it, and no shooter has shocked as much as COD 4 when the nuke went off.
The worst was the campaign of Battlefield 3 which was first of many cruel jokes EA played on people who paid full price on day one.
The new Medal of Honor is somewhere in between. Not as good as the last Medal of Honor but miles closer to the mark than BF3. Games like MOH is the reason I have Gamefly. Im happy to have played but wont miss it when I send it back.
