Men of Valor Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: While the PC has seen its share of amazing war titles, the Xbox hasn’t really had too many competent shooters based on historical wars. Men of Valor is a solid title that shooter fans and war buffs will surely appreciate, but the more casual fan might overlook.
Excerpt: Here's a great idea. Dedicate significant amounts of money and time developing a game. Make it a first person shooter - they tend to be popular. To ensure it doesn't get any notable coverage at all, release it at the same time as Half Life 2 and Halo 2.
Excerpt: Another week, yet another game based on the Vietnam War. Surely, one of these titles is going to get it right sooner or later’ The failure count currently stands at three, with Vietcong: Purple Haze , Shellshock: ‘Nam 67 and Conflict: Vietnam failing to get the job done with anything other than...
Conclusion: reminiscent of the Medal of Honor series, delivering long conversations and history lessons before the mission. The game quickly jumps into action, following a series of training missions and in-game cinematics, but it isn’t long after the action begins that you want it to end.
Excerpt: Set in Vietnam from the period of 1965-1968, Men of Valor is told through the eyes of Dean Shepard, a young African-American Marine stationed at Danang. Delivered via letters that are sent back home, Dean details many of his missions and sorties in the brush and ruined cities of ‘Nam, which includes...
Summary: Of all the Vietnam-theme titles announced last year the one that showed the most promise was Vivendi’s . And for good reason, it was being helmed by 2015, the famed developers behind Electronic Arts’ masterpiece, .
Conclusion: The heritage is never far from the surface, as much like the way you played Jimmy Paterson in the early Medal of Honor games, in MoV you are Dean Shepard, farm boy recruit who is about to find out that joining up wasn’t such a good idea after all as he gets caught up in famous real battles such as...
Pros: The explosions are awesome., Authentic weapons., Nice attention to detail on weapons and vehicles., The sound captures the atmosphere perfectly., Plenty of multiplayer options., A heck of a challenge even on ‘easy’.
Cons: Dumb AI., Daft missions., Linear levels., Awful cut scenes., This game is way too tough for your average Marine – ‘cherries’ need not apply.
Conclusion: Ich gebe zu, dass ich ab und an gerne einen „Kriegsshooter“ zocke. Was mir dabei gefällt ist weniger das Shooting, sondern ein historischer Hintergrund, der sich möglichst exakt an die Gegebenheiten hält und nichts beschönigt.
Pros: schöne Optik, gute VietnamAtmosphäre, viele Zwischensequenzen
Cons: hohe Systemanforderungen, saudumme KI, Kriegsverherrlichend, Frustfaktor Speicherpunkt, Unlogischer Schwierigkeitsgrad (mal zu leicht, mal zu schwer), Genre: KriegsEgoshooter, Publisher: Vivendi/2015, Umfang: 30 Std., Grafik: 90%, Sound: 75%, KI: 55%, Spielspaß: 75%, Multiplayer: 80%, Extras...
Excerpt: Den siste tiden har gitt oss en mengde førstepersons skytespill som tar for seg Vietnamkrigen. Vietcong, Battlefield: Vietnam og Shellshock Nam 67` er noen av titlene som har tatt den grufulle konflikten i det sentrale Asia som utgangspunkt for underholdning.
Conclusion: Zudem sollten all jene, die um herausfordernde Spiele einen weiten Bogen machen gehörig Abstand von Men of Valor nehmen. Wer denkt, er könne mir nichts dir nichts durch die einzelnen Missionen latschen, liegt falsch.
