Summary: This is a review for Medal of Honour (sony Playstation 1, 1999) This is going to be a really short review, because it has been a really long time since I have played this game, or even used this system.
Excerpt: *A review of Medal of Honor for PlayStation.* CONTROLS There are a couple of controller configurations and aiming options but these cannot be changed during a level and there's no adjusting the horizontal/vertical axis sensitivity. I did find a setup to suit me and I did have a need for the aim button as this brings up a target cursor - it can pay off to aim for head shots given the weaknesses of the weapons.
Pros: Authenticity, enemies well animated, audio is fantastic
Cons: AI has it's downfalls, stealth sections too safe, not the smoothest FPS
Excerpt: Few would argue that, over the past decade or so, Electronic Arts have become the biggest publishers in the gaming world. Building on the success of some fabulous Mega-Drive and SNES titles in the early nineties, EA used some crafty advertising campaigns and bucked a trend for ‘annual updates’ – relatively unheard of techniques that they quickly made their own, and ones that continue to ensure that their yearly FIFA, NBA, NHL and Madden games rake in the cash come...
Pros: Technically superb, solid and detailed graphics, tense and enjoyable gameplay, excellent sound effects, healthy selection of levels
Cons: Occasionally frustrates, multiplayer could be better, perhaps a little repetitive in later levels
Excerpt: This game is based on a WW2 mission. This is the first of a line of many WW2 Medal Of Honor games, wich will continue as the demand of action and shooter games based on the wars, and for shure, will eventually end with the war on Iraq, showing the missions in the greatest of detail. This game is reccomended, by me, to the quick-study, quick-learn type of people. It took me awhile to understand what to do. Once I figured it out, it was great.
Pros: Very Addictive, Long Plot, and Has A Great Rep . Of The V2 Rocket Facility
Excerpt: I used to get "spellbound" at watching my ex-husband and daughter play this game. It was better than watching an old WWII movie on the television. It puts the user in a variety of combat situations, most of which I am sure are based on actual combat scenarios. I played it myself a couple of times but got more enjoyment from just watching others play.
Pros: A good WWII simulation, puts the gameplayer into some interesting fighting scenarios, user friendly
Cons: Can get frustrating in difficult situations when keep getting killed off, no easy way of resuming from where you left off
Excerpt: Okay, we all know that war isn't a good thing. People get killed, lives get ruined. It's bad and that's a fact but when it's turned into a game it's a good thing and in this case, a VERY good thing. They allow people to get rid of any unwanted frustration without hurting anyone. Just imagine how much easier it would be if disputing countries fight it out over an excellent PSX game instead of killing each other in real life.
Excerpt: Medal of Honour is a game which you play once and put it to the bottom of your pile. The first time you play it is just the best. Saving Private Ryan eat your heart out with the loud explosions and good graphics makes it a good game. Hearing the occasional German voice in the back round which gets you heart racing. But as I said the first time you complete it is good but the second is just boring. You can complete it in a weekend so its lifespan is not very long.
