Reviews and Problems with Medal of Honor: Rising Sun

Showing 1-10 of 16

Very violent WWI shooter is for mature players.

Common Sense Media
17 September 2005
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this first-person shooter is a very violent game. But it also contains archival film from WWI and fictionalized "letters from home," which create an authenticity that keeps the carnage from feeling gratuitous. This game has an online option; Common Sense Media does not recommend online play for anyone under 12.

  • Excerpt: Picture being rudely awakened by an incredible explosion and the violent rumblings of your bed underneath you. You are thrown to the floor and you hear screams all around you. Smoke starts billowing into the hallways and your commanding officer is yelling for you to get on deck as soon as possible. This is how begins the game.

  • Conclusion: The game opens with a literal rude awakening on -- the attack on Pearl Harbor.  After your character wakes up onboard one of the ships, he joins in against wave after wave of Zeros, he eventually get thrown into sea and control the main gun on a PT-boat. For the most part, the game takes place on solid terra firma; but there are a few vehicle sections (an elephant in one case), which will have you wishing that you could get off the damn thing and control yourself.

  • Excerpt: But first, Rising Sun. Once again a brief recap on the series. As you may, or may not know, Medal of Honor is one of the major franchises of the WWII genre. This series, along with Call of Duty and the recently released mega game Brothers In Arms, are amongst the most powerful of the WWII games. But there are also some minor gamers trying their hand at the WWII genre as well, including our old friends BAM!

  • Summary: This is such a disappointing title. The graphics are well below best on the system, and the gameplay seems flat with some poor AI. There is much better available.

  • Excerpt: Stedet er Pearl Harbor. Klokken er kvart over åtte på morgenen. Det er den syvende desember, 1941. Det er en ganske vanlig og rolig søndag morgen. Joseph Griffin ligger på senga og småprater med kollegaene sine. Stemningen er avslappet og behagelig. Plutselig braker det bokstavelig talt løs. Skipet Joseph befinner seg ombord blir torpedert, og omgivelsene forandres raskt til en dødssone. Skipet tar flerfoldige treff og rystes til grunnen med jevne mellomrom.

  • Summary: Da liegt man nichtsahnend in seiner Koje im Bauch eines großen Kriegsschiffes, als selbiges plötzlich von einer Detonation erschüttert wird. Während der Spielercharakter gerade aus dem Bett springt, folgt eine zweite Explosion, die jetzt sogar einige Schotten brechen lässt. Ihr hört einen Offizier noch befehlen: »Alle Mann an Deeeeck!« und schon seid ihr auf euch alleine gestellt.
  • Pros: Atmosphärischer Beginn, Koop-Modus
