Now if you are like me and played Medal of Honor since the original you were probably excited when you heard it was comin out
I have to say the game was NOT a dissapointment,better than the last MOH.
the campaign was awesome and actually kept you playing instead of just skipping to the online
online is great the weapons and attachments are awesome but take time to unlock
the class system was the only thing i thought wasnt awesome granted a new look but class are set in stone if your a sniper you a sniper,a spec ops a spec ops there is no in between granted in real life it is like that, but that was something i loved the ability to have a lightmachine gunner with proximities, or a sniper with heavy armor
but all and all a great game, def a must have for any hard core shooting gamer

It's not perfect, but it's a lot of fun for a short time. Unsurprisingly, the campaign is incredibly short. If I had to guess, I'd say it took about 4 and a half hours. With that said, it pack a lot of fun into a small time frame with some of the best realizations of modern weaponry in a game ever! Seriously these guns are a blast to play with. The games story line isn't very interesting, but military shooters never were known for great narratives. Instead this game focuses on the action and does it well. The graphics are incredible, the sounds are amazing, and as I've said already the gun play is top notch. Throw in some extravagant explosions and some well done driving mechanics for a shooter and you've got, in my personal opinion, one of the best military FPS campaigns this year.
The multiplayer is where this game suffers in my opinion. While fun at first, you will start to notice it's little inadequacy's, overpowered proximity mines, frustrating shield abilities, and a slow motion death animation that gets really old. Small Frostbite 2 glitches make an appearance as well such as a reload animation not playing and switching a weapon after death and dying upon respawn because the game has yet to load your weapon on screen. The game also fails to capture what's great about neither Call of Duty or Battlefield 3. Call of Duty puts you on this playground with a plethora of weapons and equipment to play with in any combination you choose. Medal of Honor restricts your weapon choices to the class you're playing as and gives you no say in what side arm you have. Though BF3 does the same thing, the classes each have specific roles to play on the battlefield and is balanced well. MOHs version feels pointless and adds nothing to the game besides a very confined and restricted feeling, just like the small non destructible maps.
The game offers 48 hours of full multiplayer access, this, combined with the short campaign is why it's an ideal rental. 48 hours was plenty
