Coolios, is medal of honor ps3 only? I want a new game that's a shooter that's different from mw2 I'm done with that game I can't find any fun in it anymore.

I'm considerin halo reach but I've heard medal of honor is badass but idk if its ps3 exclusive only or not.

being honest im not a big fan of MOH series. But its nice to play a shooting game besides MW, I would highly recommend Halo Reach if you have a 360.

How's the game Midnight? Curious to hear your review since your a big fan of first person shooters. Still deciding whether I should wait until November for Black Ops.

sorry guys

been busy the last few days

but this way i can kind of give you my spill on the whole thing.

DISCLAIMER: IF YOU ARE OBSESSED WITH MODERN WARFARE 2 THIS GAME MAY NOT BE FOR YOU!


HOWEVER if you are looking for an alternative to the whole perk system, camping, noob tubing, etc., etc. This game may be for you.

Ill go ahead and say i dont own Modern Warfare 2 anymore. Got tired of how the game played with all the perks and what not. And to be honest lately it feels like there isnt much of an alternative.

I played Battefield:Bad Company 2 and i like the way the game played without all the perks. Kind of a bare bones multiplayer FPS. It was really fun to play but the maps really were too big and took forever to find a fight.

But Medal of Honor is probably the best alternative to come around.


The Multiplayer

Its a mixture of:

Modern Warfare 2: Small maps, less teammates, quicker action, respawns. But there are no perks crazy kill chains. But they did something cool with MOH's kill chains. instead of picking the chains you want like on MW2, every time you get a perk in MOH it has a defensive bonus or an offensive bonus. For example the 1st tier (3 kills on one life) gives you either Mortar Fire or UAV.

Bad Company 2: The multiplayer feels like BC2's multiplayer. Same company, same developer, same engine, same everything. Well of course except for the maps which are much better on MOH. But as to how this game "feels" it "feels" like BC2 if that makes sense. The presentation is different and the unlock trees are different for the weapons. On MOH there are three classes all holding an assortment of weapons. Assault, Close Quarters,Sniper. Im sure you can imagine which are in each of the classes. And you can change these classes after every death so if your getting blasted because everyone is sniping then you can pick the sniper then counter-snipe.

Single Player

To be honest i havent played much of it.

But from the parts i played i will have to say the graphics are stunning. The shadows, character models, environments really pop out.

The one part of the Single Player i like is that they focus on the soldiers being "human" instead of Rambo like dudes who just **** everyone up. And i dont mean that in how many people you kill or the epicness of the action. Because this game is surely over the top also, but i mean that they will show little backgrounds into the characters and make you try to feel for the guys. Kind of a band of brothers type of thing.


Conclusion:

Like i said before, this game probably will not convert you over from MW2. If you like that set up and dig the whole kill hungry, chain unlocking, predator missile ass raping, camp fest then this game will not grab your attention. And i dont think it is meant to.

This game seems to be a bare bones shooter.

Put all bull**** aside. Level the playing field. Man up and get some ****ing headshots.

there arent little classes you can link together so you can rape on this one map if you sit in the back of the hanger and wait for people to show up.

you know what i mean?

But if you are a person LIKE ME who wants to play a barebones shooter with quick action, team based matches then i say GET THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!

Ive had a lot of fun playing it.

i really like the teamwork in the Multiplayer matches. They give you more points for helping teammates and completing objectives than getting kills so it forces you to actually play the ****ing game. Now there are still death matches but for the majority of other game types teamwork is necessary.

It must be noted that this game has been getting some really ****ty reviews.....but i think too many people are comparing it to MW2...................When its not that game.


I think all the reviews out are a little biased and a bit too harsh.


this was my opinion.....i like it a lot........

Cool. Can't wait to get it now.

I am not looking to be converted for MW2, but I need an alternative. Need an extended break from that game.

i have to say its a lot harder to get a crazy amount of kills on MOH.

which isnt a bad thing.

but you have to really be on your toes to play this game....kills dont come easy.

People move a hell of a lot faster

Sounds fun.

I have always been a natural run and gunner in shooting games. I prefer fast pace shooting.

Had to adjust my style because of campers in MW always kicking my ass. Had to find a happy medium.

Rocco's Review of Medal Of Honor

Pro's: 12 on 12 on a tiny map mean alot of action, great 3d graphics compared to 2d Modern Warfare Graphics, Rag Doll body effects, developed by BFBC programmers(dice), no kill streak perks, great for close combat lots of action type of gamers, faster spawning after death.

Con's: maps too small, spawn campers, poor spawning locations, no squads like in BFBC, not alot of weapons to choose from unlike MW2 and BFBC2, ak47 and m16 are rated the same as well as a few other guns that are totally different. Game matches go to fast if on a crappy team or really good team. Too much like MW2

Certain things will be improved over time(such as the laggy servers, spawn camping, spawning locations, more downloadable guns at a cost). This is not going to be a long lasting game for most with replayability like MW2 and BFBC2 but it is a good alternative till Black Ops and BF Vietnam come out this winter.

This game is very fast paced and need to really concentrate if you want to have a good k/d ratio, due to such small maps and lots of people. A good play for a change of pace from MW2 and BFBC2 but not a great great game.

Rocco Rating 6.5 out of 10

I may be wrong but looking at history the company making black ops they have a history of sh*tty games like cod3, world at war and a expansion pack for cod2 my friend told me was utter sh*t.

I surely won't buy this game on release date but ill be looking for a lot of reviews before I buy it.

Mw2 was a decent game its biggest downfall was about every map was sh*t and it was glitched to hell, although I had fun exploiting all the glitches a game like cod should be professionally made and fully tested before giving it to the public.

Black Ops will be all that MW2 is, without the OMA and quickscoping

whether thats for your or not, is up to you!

It will get good reviews because of its name.

Its funny how most websites kill games for never innovating or changing.

But COD game olay wise hasnt changed for like the last 4 games but continues to get bloated scores.

Dont go by website reviews. They are usually very biased and fit an agenda.

I don't listen to website reviews, by looking at reviews I ment by goin to game websites and look at the boards to see what the ppl have to say about it.

Your right cod has been same sh*t like 4 games just different maps tbh I'm sure most ****suckers will stick up for the game no matter what but ill see...ill probably end up buyin it but for sure I'm not buyin it on no release date.

the only thing that helped treyarch be successful was adding zombies on WaW. that was probably the only thing i played when it was release.i'm still waiting on more info on this whole new zombies for black-ops.

not so much a hold me over I needed a new game anyway I only got 3 and one I only play single player, the other one BFBC2 I have over 400 hours on and so I figured a new game wouldnt be all that bad but I was definitely going to stay away from the MW2 crap I couldnt deal with that game after BFBC2 came out. I'm probably not going to get Black Ops just going to wait for BF Vietnam to come out then after that BFBC3 will be coming out (which I already have the invitation to for the Beta when that comes out)
