Like I said in the beginning, I wasn’t expecting much out of Medal of Honor, but I was more than satisfied. While the multiplayer has its cons, it definitely has potential to be built into something more and I wouldn’t be surprised if downloadable content releases soon. The single-player campaign is enough to hold anyone through a gripping story with non-stop and fast-paced action and a trio of compelling characters. I should also mention that MoH is dedicated to America’s servicemen and I think it’s a job well done, no matter what the military bases say. Medal of Honor is one game you should be playing and one game that is now in competition with the rest.

Seit dem mittelmäßigen Airborne war es lange Zeit still um Medal of Honor. Es schien, als habe EA den Kampf um den Shooter-Thron mit dem Erfolg von Activisions Call of Duty: Modern Warfare vollends aufgegeben. Das diesjährige Medal of Honor sollte die Karten nun neu mischen. Unser Test zu Medal of Honor zeigt nun aber, dass kein großer Wurf dabei herauskam. Der Afghanistan-Shooter aus dem Hause Danger Close ist kurz, wirr und bietet zu wenig eigene Seele.

Na Bad Company 2 doet Electronic Arts opnieuw een gooi naar de troon van het first person shooter-genre, maar alweer grijpt het ernaast. Medal of Honor biedt niettemin prima shooter-vertier.
Summarized we can say that Medal of Honor plays nice, but to reach the top the makers will have to get up earlier as there's no innovation or originality to be found. On the other hand there's plenty of variation present to keep you busy for a while and also the multiplayer doesn't disappoint. Once the Afghan dust settles, however, little is left. Medal of Honor is fun as a snack but certainly not a keeper. Better luck next time?
I can understand why DICE didn’t want to build a multiplayer too similar to that of Bad Company 2, but the current approach has turned the new Medal of Honor into a hybrid that won’t be able to attract the fans of either Modern Warfare or BC2 in the long run, because it doesn’t have any good incentives. And it’s not far-fetched to think that the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops next month will empty even more servers. Problem is, the single-player doesn’t manage to lift it too much either, and Electronic Arts’ indecision on whether to compete in multiplayer against their own game (Bad Company 2), or go gunning for the elephant in the room (Modern Warfare) will cost them dearly in the long run.
Though it may be tempting to look at its flaws and dismiss Medal of Honor as inferior to its competitors, there is a lot to enjoy here. The campaign has its shortcomings, but its unique sense of scope and well-orchestrated pacing make it an enjoyably cohesive adventure. Tier One mode offers an accessible yet formidable challenge, and the competitive multiplayer captures the brutal intensity of a battlefield where one errant move can result in your abrupt death. Medal of Honor doesn't set any new standards for the genre, but it delivers a lot of entertainment and excitement if you're looking to add a splash of realism to your first-person shooting.
The new Medal of Honor doesn’t quite provide an epic tale to be told throughout the ages, and depending on how you play MOH’s campaign, the completion time is around 5-6 hours. It can get emotional towards the end, especially after you have developed a sense of brotherhood with your team. If you really are pressed for time, you can pretty much speed run the entire game on hard mode with relative ease, but why would you want to do that when there is so much atmosphere to admire and absorb? It is obvious that MOH’s multiplayer has not broken new ground, nor does it boast anything you couldn’t find in any previous FPS titles either. Having said that what the multiplayer lacks in variety it makes up for in gameplay and it appeals to a completely different demographic of shooter fans.
There's a lot to like about EA's Medal of Honor reboot if you're able to look past some of the more disappointing aspects of the game. Though the game never truly reaches the potential its source material allows for, you're going to want to experience the superb pacing and visuals - not to mention the distinctly addicting multiplayer suite. Sure, it's not everything it could have been, but given the expectations, that's not necessarily a bad thing.
Le problème de Medal of Honor, c'est qu'il a beau vouloir copier les recettes du succès, il le fait sans envergure. En solo, le jeu est bien sans plus, réservant quelques bonnes scènes mais ne faisant jamais bondir, se satisfaisant de miser sur des mécaniques vues et revues et en s'affublant d'une IA et d'une réalisation franchement passables. En multi, on s'amuse déjà plus, même si là encore, on a droit à un mix d'éléments collectés à droite et à gauche et rapiécés. Ca marche, bien même. Si ce Medal of Honor ne fera pas oublier les autres pointures du genre, il fera en tout cas office d'en-cas à ceux qui ont déjà épuisé leurs stocks FPS.
(Multiplayer Review) Eigentlich gibt es momentan genug Multiplayer-
Shooter. Denn während Actionfans
in Modern Warfare 2 bestens aufgehoben
sind, ballern sich Taktiker und Teamspieler
durch Bad Company 2. Kurzum: Medal of
Honor braucht kein Mensch. Zumal Dice erstaunlich
wenig Liebe ins Spiel gesteckt
hat, denn Waffenverhalten, Klassenbalance
und Gemeinschaftsgefühl kommen nicht
übers Mittelmaß hinaus.

Medal of Honor is an FPS which tried to set itself apart from the crowd and instead fell right in line with what a run of the mill FPS is. Nothing about it stands out as particularly bad, but nothing stands out as particularly memorable either. Medal of Honor is a perfectly average, solid C. And when most of your competition is exceedingly popular and regarded as good to great, average just doesn’t cut it.
(Singleplayer Review) Zugegeben, auch Modern Warfare 2 gewinnt in Sachen Spieldesign keine Kreativpreise. Doch weiß sich Infinity Wards Shooter wenigstens enorm spektakulär zu präsentieren und große Aha-Momente zu schaffen. Im Vergleich dazu kommt Medal of Honor reichlich bemüht daher und enttäuscht zudem durch stumpfe Ballerorgien, die schwache Geschichte, Balancemacken, Logikfehler und Bugs. Der gelungene Neustart einer ehrwürdigen Shooter-Serie sieht anders aus.
Medal of Honor's real problem may be Danger Close's inability to commit to a particular direction for the game. Swinging wildly between the horrors and danger of war and unrealistic action movie moments and hampered by a surplus of boring scripted sequences, not even DICE's talented multiplayer designers are able to elevate Medal of Honor to something memorable. Combined with Danger Close's fixation on delivering an experience about a war that Americans are deeply ambivalent about, and multiplayer that remains likely to incite controversy about its content after players have moved on to deeper, more engaging multiplayer options, Medal of Honor is one of the bigger disappointments of 2010. That being said, for gamers with the option, Medal of Honor for PC is the version to get, with none of the apparent stability problems of its console counterparts.
All things considered, I was desperately underwhelmed by Medal of Honor. I genuinely believed it would be a more interesting and serious take on the now popularised modern warfare FPS. As it stands, the campaign was a short and mostly forgettable affair, while the slower pacing of the multiplayer only becomes rewarding after some initial persistence. Here’s to hoping that the inevitable next iteration of the already well-selling reboot applies a lot more spit and polish, and steps clear away from the corridor-shooter approach.
