Medal of Honor: Rising Sun
18 January 2009
Summary: I decided to Purchase Medal of Honor: Rising Sun, because I had own Medal of Honor: Front Line and loved it. Unfortunately I did not like Medal of Honor: Rising Sun as much as Front Line. Rising Sun did not have as many mission as Front line it also did not have as much enemy's. It did have 1 more machinery to use but not any vehicles. So unfortunately I did not like the game as much as Front Line.
Summary: These days, 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.
Summary: This game was a pretty good addition to the MOH family. Gameplay is pretty entertaining except that there is a very obvious path that you must follow, no choice in where you go like in European Assault. Graphics are pretty good and the overral campaign is entertaining. The different array of weapons really make the battles interesting however certain maneuvarabilities are restricted: such as lying down, or kicking a grenade that is lying on your foot (not a good...
Summary: When I first started playing this game, it seemed really fun. Like when you have the machine guns and are shooting down the Zeroes. (It was a bit unrealitic in that you could shoot down 30 in a matter of about 5 minutes, but it was still fun.) Then, I got to the level The Fall of the Philiphines. I ran up to a Jap and started shooting at him. He shot at me back, but his fellow soldiers just stood there and looked at me.
Summary: I am a late convert to the Medal of Honor series. I've played them both on PC (Allied Assault and Spearhead) and xbox (Frontline). I had great expectations for Rising Sun but was soon disappointed when I got the game home and started playing. My overall impressions are that EA rushed through production of this game to hit the shelves in the holiday timeframe.

Summary: The Medal Of Honor series is the best historical game series on the market. From the experience I got from playing MOH: Frontline, I didn't think twice about buying this game. Unfortunately, I should've waited. While the game was fun to play, it was incredibly short. The only bright side to the game is unlocking the historical and interview videos.
Summary: A friend and I rented the game and beat the co-op mode under the normal difficulty in 3-4 hours i think. It was pretty fun (most co-op games always are) but was not even close to cool. First level seems to start cool, but then throughout the pearl harbor your just aiming and firing from guns. Some people like this, but I need to run and gun, not just aim and shoot down multitudes of planes.
Summary: Whilst Medal of Honor: rising Sun is an entertaining addition to the series, I think it will prove ultimately disappointing to fans of previous MoH games.The gameplay is not all that different from previous games, except (as many reviewers have commented)the game is much shorter and far too easy. I waltzed through the Pearl Harbor levels first time- it's hard to see how you could fail! In contrast the storming of the beaches level on Frontline took a while to conquer.
Summary: As a fan of the MOH series (dating back to the 2 games produced for PSOne), this was definitely a game I couldn't wait to play. The problem was that I finished it in about a week (about 8 hours total). Some of the other reviewers have mentioned that Frontline is a longer game (19 levels vs 10 here), and I would add also a tougher game.
