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.
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.

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.
