Last week I decided that I would buy Medal of Honor upon its release date to keep me busy until the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops, however I must admit that slightly unimpressive reviews have now put me off, so I may just wait for Black Ops.
Recently at the Eurogamer Expo 2010 I managed to get some hands-on time with Medal of Honor, I must say the two multiplayer matches I played in were great fun, however seeing as how IGN UK has scored the game 6/10 there must be some problems.
According to IGN UK the campaign is too short, this isn’t a problem for me as I am more interested in multiplayer gaming, however IGN UK also say that “multiplayer will probably wear out its welcome faster than other big shooters this year”, this is what really worries me.
IGN suggest that the maps grow old quickly, this could be its downfall as people will not want to play online for too long if the maps really are this bad, perhaps DLC could improve things, however it is not promising to hear that a reviewer has noticed this in a relatively short amount of time.
Love or hate Modern Warfare 2 you have to admit that all of the multiplayer maps offer different styles of gameplay and don’t really seem similar to one and another, obviously map packs have helped to keep the game fresh once the 15 initial offerings got boring, so I really hope Danger Close have some map packs up their sleeve.
Has IGN UK’s review put you off Medal of Honor? I must admit I am not as certain about buying it as I once was..
