Excerpt: "MEDAL OF HONOR is a first-person shooter set in modern day Afghanistan. It was released in 2010 and is, at the time of writing, the latest in the Medal of Honor series. The singleplayer element is created by Danger Close on the Unreal Engine, specifically the third iteration, and the multiplayer by DICE of Battlefield fame, using their Frostbite 2 engine to develop it. ==Gameplay== The gameplay of Medal of Honor is simply ‘fine’, it’s nothing ‘spectacular’, ...
Medal of Honor is a better than average first person shooter.

Excerpt: "Medal of Honor is the latest in the Medal of Honor series published by EA. It’s the first Medal of Honor set in the modern world, with modern guns, environments and technology. When I first set out to play this game, I told myself not to compare it to Modern Warfare – as everyone seems to be jumping on that particular bandwagon. I tried to play Medal of Honor with an open, clear mind. Unfortunately this wouldn’t last very long, as you’ll soon find ...
Pros: Some great moments, decent gameplay .
Cons: Too many scripted events, somewhat weak multiplayer .
Medal of Honor: Imitation is the best form of flattery

Excerpt: "The Medal of Honor series has always been a great videogame series; once supreme in the land of first person shooters, it took a backseat for a while as Call of Duty began to shine, created from ex-Medal of Honor members. It was due a trip into modern times, but I did not expect this. From even first screenshots, and the still solid rivalry between publishers EA and Activison, this game was designed to take the fight to Call of Duty. And this was ...
Pros: Excellant graphics, engaging single - player storyline .
Cons: Not enough replayability, multiplayer is very shallow with not enough content .
Summary: Yawn. This game is such a bore. Let's be honest, this game was highly over-hyped and fell flat. This game attempts to be a Modern Warfare killer. It has very few (ok, none) original ideas. The glitches, just wow, it's even in the console counterparts. AI randomly appear, you can literally see them spawn on the map.
Pros: - Somewhat engaging storyline, - Great filler. Release timing was good as there's a shortage of AAA titles. Story is not too long so until good games come out at the end of this month, you'd have finished this one.
Cons: - Glitches are highly annoying, - Console rated graphics, - Vehicles seem unnecessary, merely an attempt to extend single player
Summary: I enjoyed this game through most of the missions. It has a training mission to learn the first person controls. Then you get into it. Some thought is necessary to complete missions successfully, I like. What I don't appreciate, in any game, is where the vehicle controls are made difficult just to make the game harder. You are able to fly an airplane, but the game doesn't support a joy stick.
Excerpt: "I understand tha tthis game has had a lot of mixed reviews from various professional reviewers. This was on offer at Game for 9.99 so I thought I'd take chance - I'd quite enjoyed playing Allied Assualt on the PC. As you'll probably already know, you play the role of an American Marine battling against the Japanese in the Pacific Theatre. The game starts by throwing you in at the deep end trying to storm a beach defended by the enemy - needless ...
Pros: Nice Graphics
Cons: Slow gameplay, too many cut scenes, 'tinny' weapons
