Medal of Honor was a great franchise when it was released on the PlayStation back in the day. Lately, we have seen a resurgence with Medal of Honor coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360. It had a pretty decent online experience but the single player left gamers wanting something more. Well, if that something more was a new game, guess whaaattt! You are in luck as there is a New Medal of Honor game coming in just a few months.
Now, I do not know whether I should be excited or disappointed at the fact that this is coming soon. Maybe I would be more excited if the game was not an attempt at dipping into Call of Duty’s first person market share. I know many people make the argument when it comes to first person shooters that there trying to be more and more like a Call of Duty clone. I mean can we really blame them though? There trying to make the big bucks. Whatever the case may be having a new game in any gamers’ collection should be a delight. Is this the case with Medal of Honor: Warfighter?
The answer to that is not as clean cut as one might think. The first Medal of Honor game on the Xbox 360 and PS3 received an aggregate score between 72 to 75 over the course of the three platforms (PC, PS3, and Xbox 360) that it was released on. Issues stemmed from the game being too short for some people and the online multiplayer not providing certain features for other people. The game was polarizing across some of the industry’s best reviewers and it was actually herald for having a lot of potential to be great, but just fell short.
Now we cue in Medal of Honor: Warfighter. Danger Close is still developing the game, the original developers of the first title, but with a few new people on staff from Treyarch, Dice, and other reputable studios, it looks like this one has some promise. There is some hope with this title though, with all of the creative juices flowing through that team and their method of storytelling I have no doubt in my mind that this title can and will be better than the first and I’ll let you hold me to that statement. If you don’t believe me just check out the official gameplay trailer and a couple of screens I have accompanied with article to get your juices flowing.
Well, there you have it Ladies and Gentleman; you have heard my thoughts, what are your thoughts about the new Medal of Honor? Are you excited for this game or are you disappointed that it will not be as good as you would hope it will and could end up being potentially worse than the first one.
