After a lot of hype and some serious marketing from EA that involved some prominent TV spots, Medal of Honor is now on store shelves for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The competition is fierce though and Medal of Honor enters an already densely occupied arena of first person shooters.

Many reported disappointment from the multiplayer beta tests but held on to hopes that the final product would address their issues -- in addition to the promise of a gritty singleplayer component. So does it stack up to expectations? Things aren't looking too good.

Find out why in our in-depth review.

5.9 is too kind. Seriously, we all knew what was coming with the terrible betas. They did more damage to the title then good.

Gave it 5 minsutes in SP and went back to MP though probably one of the most frustrating MP games I have played yet enjoyable.

Was it just me or did the game/EA/DICE try a little to hard to make Team America Fsck Yeah look fscking awesome ?!?

Correcto on the console comments. Such a poor attempt at a port.

A really average game. The Singleplayer was okay but it suddenly ends and make you feel cheaped out.

The graphics are really dated (especially for a PC game) and the SP mode is so scripted it make you feel like you're being funneled down linear corridors (even outside).

The Multiplayer also isn't working for me.

I paid only $22 AUD for it and I still feel like it didn't live up to my expectations.

MP is great, people just need to adjust to the game.

It's honestly not reLapse. The map environment is well done, sure. But everything else is just so f-ed up. Spawn points, guns being like laser rifles, snipers being the dominant weapon, shotguns killing people 100m away, streaks lackluster and for a team encouraging game, it doesn't really say "go team" much.

buggy pos is buggy. finished the SP today and i could only ever pick out the flaws.

Played it through hard but it wasn't even hard? i could take like 20 shots from baddies and not die then any challenging part was met with you calling down a strike of deathfromabove. The triggers in each mission was lame. In one particular part I was getting cheesed off at the game so instead of sneaking i just rambo'ed in so the way the game thought it would make it harder was to.. spawn AQ right on top of me...

And for some reason my mouse is lagged to s*** when i load it up and it i have to toggle vsync on/off before it fixes itself..weird

You cant help but compared the SP to MW2 sp.. and this attempt is just really sad.

Eorl no game has a good spawning system, snipers aren't dominant on the pc, shotguns definitely do not kill from that far away and the streaks are anything but lackluster.

I play it, sounds like you don't.

Wow, I never thought this game would be 'this s***'...

Lets hope Black Ops will be a much better game eh?
Tollaz0r!

reLapse, Doom had a good spawning system. Have you actually played that?

Posted 02:08pm 26/10/10
@reLapse, from what I played, it sure as hell was bad. And there are a lot of other MP games that have better respawning then this pos. Hell, css has better respawning.

I actually enjoyed the game. Short SP, granted, but the MP is pretty solid. Good tight maps, fast, and interesting.

Posted 12:31pm 28/10/10
@Eorl CSS TDM respawning is just as bad as any other game, you always spawn near someone else.

I just finished the single player and loved it. Great stories and cutscenes. Prone and lean are an awesome thing. Only one crash. I think 5.9 was too harsh.

Needless to say, i'll be renting this out on the xbox for an over night bash.

So - am I reading correctly that the console version is preferable to PC (which is what I would normally prefer)??? Even with the reviews I know I will end up buying it...

SP is hit and miss. i enjoy the simplicity of racing thru the levels and only using pistol (unlimited reloads) and trying to knife as many as possible. hell, im even having more fun than COD6 SP cause im not havign to wait all the time for blood on the screen to die down from the millions of enemies that just keep coming at you.

MP i have love/hate relationship. Some games are great and i pwn while others i get spawncamped or cant move from A to B without some camping sniper nailing me a mile away with no deathcam to spot the little bastard. I hated COD6 due to terrible ping and enjoyed BFBC2 but found it too team-orientated which is great when with buddies but i have none. Hence, MOH is a mix of both. Run and gun similar to COD but bunnyhopping style gameplay doest work too well and less teamwork required than BFBC2.

I would never, ever touch console though. Im terrible with gamepad and dont see how console could ever play better apart form the ability to hire out and finish campaign in a sitting or test MP then return the day after.

I do like smokin Hajis but I am also partial to the AK....

Also no lean or prone in MP BLOWSSSSSS wtf they are two different games. But its still pretty damn fun, definitely an improvement over BC2 even though its basically the same engine.

I don't mind the MP... Sometimes frustrating but rewarding when you can get around and Knife those F'in snipers that camp. If you’re gonna run out in the open, throw smoke first!
MatchFixah
Posted 09:36pm 04/11/10
Rented this to play the single player campaign and smoke some Hajis.

Though i think at the moment i'm the one being smoked. Suck s*** USA!
