Medal of Honor Heroes 2 Wii Review
29 May 2010
Excerpt: Medal of Honor Vanguard, like other FPS’s on the Wii before it, didn’t allow us to get as intimate with the controls as we might have liked, as quite simply they just weren’t up to scratch. With that said I approached Medal of Honor Heroes 2 cautiously and soon came to the realisation that the game isn’t only an enjoyable instalment in the series but also an extremely smooth one.
Summary: It's June 6th, 1944, and the war is in your hands. Step into the boots of OSS Operative John Berg and infiltrate Normandy from behind enemy lines to undermine the Nazi regime. Just like the recent Madden 08 announcement, the Wii edition will include an all-new arcade mode that simplifies gameplay for players of all skill levels.
Excerpt: Early in the Wii's life I didn't have much faith in the Wii Remote as a tool for good first-person shooters. Then Metroid Prime 3 came along and re-wrote the rule book on Wii FPS control, bringing with it hope that the genre could have success on the Wii. Now, considerably later than it arrived in the US, Wii owners have Medal of Honor Heroes 2 from EA - a game that tries to be both a first-person shooter and a light-gun shooter.
Excerpt: I must admit, I didn’t have high expectations for Medal of Honor Heroes 2 when I fired it up on the Wii, for a couple of reasons. One, developers have had a tough time implementing the console’s unique control scheme, resulting in some very flat first-person shooters (I’m looking at you Call of Duty 3, and especially you Far Cry Vengeance).
Excerpt: Medal Of Honor Heroes 2 is one of those games that almost feels pointless to review, as your personal opinion on the game will no doubt be shaped by everything BUT the game itself. Do you like WWII shooters? How do you feel about the Wii Zapper? Or the Wii control scheme as a whole? Do you like rail shooters or FPS games more? Are you satisfied with Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles? Or do you need more home light gun goodness?
Conclusion: All in all, EA has fit more content into one disc than I have seen in a while. All of it is good, some of it is great! Medal of Honor Heroes 2 will potentially keep you entertained for a long time. You'd be doing yourself good in buying this game.
