A let down after Frontline
9 December 2005
Summary: I'm not a big FPS games fan, but I got hooked on to MOH Frontline which I thoroughly enjoyed. So I bought MOH Rising Sun expecting it to be even better...what a let down it was! The game was way too easy and when it abruptly came to an end, I was very disappointed. The storyline and missions are not bad, but the level of difficulty and the dumb soldiers are ridiculous. The graphics are mediocre.
Summary: Medal of Honor: Rising Sun is the next in the Medal of Honor series. You are Joe Griffin, a soldier fighting in the Pacific Theatre of World War II. There are ten missions, much less than in its predecessor, Medal of Honor: Frontline. The gameplay is all right, but the major flaw of this game is the enemy AI. "Survive devastating banzai charges," says the back cover.
Summary: I'd say that the game is worth the wait instead. I advise that you wait until this game becomes one of PS2's greatest hits so you can buy it for twenty dollars. Frontline was by far the greatest game I ever played, so I knew that I had to get the follow up. What a big mistake. There were only eight boards that were not even tough to beat. Frontline had 19 boards, each one was longer, and each involved some skill and puzzle work.

Summary: I am a huge MOH follower but this game is nothing short of a rip off. First of all it is too short I finished in one weekend, the graphics leave a lot to be desired with dead soldiers that seem to float.
Summary: Like many others here, I am a diehard MOH:Frontline fan. I've played and re-played it, never tiring of its graphics, gameplay, and rousing score, all of which perfectly combined to create an incredibly satisfying experience. Kudos to the guys at EA. Rising Sun, however, is no Frontline. Minutes into the game it becomes embarrasingly clear that the team that created Frontline had no part in this. In fact, they left EA to create Call of Duty.
Summary: This game was not nearly as good as FRONTLINE. When you get shot, it takes away more health than necessary. Plus, the Japanese are excellent marksmen in this game (unrealisticly). I would buy a different game.
Summary: I would wait for this game to go down in price to $20. It took an honest 9 hours to pass, and the ending was terrible, you would think that since the last one came out, it would take longer to pass. Best bet would be to go and rent the game for a rew days and not waste the 40 extra it would take to buy it, unless of course you enjoy playing and passing games mulitple times.
Summary: I had very high hopes for this game. Although I am a bigger war buff towards the European theater (I just like shooting Nazis), I thought it was a good switch to finally have a Medal of Honor game that took place in the Pacific. Right from the get go the attack on Pearl Harbor and the resulting escape from and defense of the USS California had my attention.
