  • Excerpt: "...on the front cover. The Medal of Honor (MoH) series has been on the go for a number of years, and has produced a series of mostly successful World War 2 themed shooters across a variety of platforms, including one of my favourite PS2 games, Medal of Honor Frontline. It was the great enjoyment that I got from Frontline that has been encouraging me to try out other games in the series in the hope of finding something that catches my imagination as much. ...
  • Pros: Some excellent levels, Great musical score, Replay potential, Available cheap
  • Cons: Some glitches, Graphics could have been more polished, Some poor levels

  • Excerpt: I had never tried a Medal of Honor game before this and was persuaded to buy it after hearing so many great things about it. There were some things that really did impress me about this game that made me think less about the Call fo Duty series! The game itself is a action, shooter game and I thought that the graphics were actually very good. The graphics I felt really enriched the whole gaming experience and made it much more enjoyable to play.

  • Excerpt: I really enjoy playing the Medal of Honor games but I think they're getting to the point where they're running out of ideas. One thing that keeps frustrating me is the difficulty of it. I had to try around a dozen times to get through a Japanese town level as there were so many soldiers I had to fight. It might be useful to go online and look for a cheat that gives you infinite health, that's what I did. However it's not all bad.

A decent WW2 themed shooter

  • Excerpt: Electronic Arts must have reached the point by now where they feel that all they need to do to make a game a success is to stick the words "Medal of Honor" on the front cover. The Medal of Honor (MoH) series has been on the go for a number of years, and has produced a series of mostly successful World War 2 themed shooters across a variety of platforms, including one of my favourite PS2 games, Medal of Honor Frontline.

  • Excerpt: "...Electronic Arts must expect the Medal of Honor games to sell solely on the strength of their name alone. The newest game in the acclaimed World War II-themed series of shooters, subtitled Rising Sun, adopts the same formula used by its predecessors, but it's fraught with lots of minor gameplay problems that eventually add up to one major headache. Rising Sun isn't completely without merit, since it comes packaged with some nice extra materials and ...
  • Pros: graphics and sound
  • Cons: gameplay not bad

  • Excerpt: "An enjoyable extension to the long running and critically aclaimed series, adding a number of new features to the first person shooting expirence. This game covers a largely neglected area of the second world war, that is the conflicts against Japan, and succeds to entertain to a good standard. Yet despite the origanally chalanging missions it is complete far to soon leaving a feeling of slight disapiontment, with a completion time of under 1 week. ...
  • Pros: Agood continuation of the series
  • Cons: Far to short a gaming expiriance

  • Excerpt: "The first Medal of Honour game for the PS2, "Frontline" was one of the best first-person-shooters available for the platform, with fast paced action, coupled with the intensity of old World War Two weapons that don't reload quick enough, whilst you're dancing around an opponent, bullets flying everywhere. The game appealed to many gamers due to the realism in the look, feel and sound of the weapons, the excellent music and the set pieces, not to mention ...
  • Pros: Another good Medal of Honour game, now with Japs !
  • Cons: Not the best of the MoH titles, but because it has now gone budget you should check it out .
