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.
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.
Summary: Multiplayer for Medal of Honor: Rising Sun is absolutely a joke. Movement is horrendous (basically forward, backward, left, right with very little variation). Aiming is virtually impossible; one must just "pray and spray". The maps are extremely small and confining.
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.
Classic EA. Their game sequels get worse over time......

Summary: If you played MOH Frontline, you will approach this game with a certain excitement that will go away once you realize the game is over. It is a short game and, at times, confusing. After you destroy the aircraft carrier, you get the impression that there is more, but there isnt.
This is what happens when $$ matter more than quality

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. This game would have been worth $19.99 but at anything over that it is a rip-off
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.
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: Unbelievably short game. Seems like EA simply wanted to pump out a follow-up to the hugely successful Frontline before people forgot about it (and in time for Christmas). Takes about 1/4 the time to complete as its predecessor.
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.
