Set for the first time in the pacific Theatre of Ops from 1941-1944. Medal of Honour gives players a sense of the courage it took to fight the Japanese from pearl harbour to the Philippine Islands. You are in the Character of US Marine Corporal Joseph Griffin. With the game you are given a manual...

Electronic Arts must have reached the point by now where they feel that all they need to do to make a game a success is to stick the words "Medal of Honor" on the front cover. The Medal of Honor (MoH) series has been on the go for a number of years, and has produced a series of mostly successful...

When the original Medal Of Honor burst onto the scene in 1999, it became the mother of all 'sleeper' hits. Not only was it enjoyable, atmospheric and brilliantly designed, it represented one of a very select number of FPS games to have worked effectively on the PlayStation format. With MOH...

Conslinear

As I was scrounging around in the loft, I stumbled across my old copy of ‘Medal of Honor: Rising Sun’. Apart from the fact that the American producers spelt honour wrong, the game was everything that the modernised games of today are not: factual, a well designed campaign, and the awesome ability...

“Medal Of Sound!!”

published 21/02/2004

ProAmazing sound.

ConsIt will only last for a while

The ‘Medal of Honor’ series are one of Elecrtronic Arts (EA's) best game series and Medal of Honor titles such as ‘Frontline’ on Gamecube, Playstation 2 and X-Box have reached number 1 in the charts. First of all the bad things about Rising Sun is that it's even shorter than Frontline, I mean a...

I brought the game expecting the usual Medal Of Honor experience, gritty realistic graphics, oozing in atmosphere and playability and to some extent thats what I got. However my enjoyable gaming experience was cut very short by a main single-player that lasted the wrong side of 6 hours, and a...

ConsEasier Than Frontline, Nothing to Go Back Too

Ever since the Medal Of Honour games were launched for the Playstation I have always been a fan and after playing the brilliant Medal Of Honour Frontline was keen to get my hands on the latest version. For those of you that don't know the Medal Of Honour games are first person shooters based on...

Well EA games have struck again, this time with yet another amazing Medal of Honor game. The game starts the same way in which World War 2 for the Americans started off, with an attack on Pearl Harbor. From here you, an American Marine Corporal called Joseph Griffin must single handedly defeat...

ConsI single handedly won the war again!

The Medal of Honour games have always been good at creating historically accurate war games, and this one is no exception. This game creates the atmosphere of the war against Japan brilliantly and manages to begin the game in the same way Japan began the war- by surpise! You expect that when you...

The first Medal of Honour game for the PS2, "Frontline" was one of the best first-person-shooters available for the platform, with fast paced action, coupled with the intensity of old World War Two weapons that don't reload quick enough, whilst you're dancing around an opponent, bullets flying...

ConsFrustrating at times and too short

The Medal Of Honor series has been around for a while starting up on the PSX this is its second title on PS2. It now faces fierce competition from Timesplitters 2 and this year's much awaited FPS game Killzone. So it has changed its atmosphere from the Nazi's to the Japenese Empire. The game...
