Ok, so EA has just put up a new gameplay video of Medal Of Honor onto the US Playstation Store. The first thing that came to mind when I watched it, was how similar it was to Modern Warfare 2, this is coming from a Battlefield: Bad Company 2 player.
While I know that I’ll probably get pages of comments on how Medal of Honor differs to Modern Warfare 2, I still think that both games look very alike, especially to the average gamer who just wants to play the newest FPS game that comes out.
Take the latest video for example. Ok, so there are obvious changes in the sound effects between the two games. But just like MW2, you’ll see the map layout in the top left corner, and your ammo and other details in the bottom right.
You may say that this is the standard format for all FPS games, but they have even copied the predator missile killstreak from the game. Take a look at the shots below to see how similar they are – you can see it on video at 0.47 below.
Let me reiterate one thing, I do play Battlefield: Bad Company 2 a lot, I know that DICE are making Medal of Honor and that both games are meant to be very different. I remember reading about how BFBC2 and Medal of Honor were so alike, but I think Medal of Honor is the one that stands out the most.
That may not be a bad thing anyway. Modern Warfare 2 is great fun for most, and they’ll probably see it as a similar game but with different maps. Have I got this completely wrong or do you think both games look similar too?
For that reason, I doubt I’ll be getting Medal of Honor, but I might get tempted closer to release, you never know. The video in question is below, have a look for yourself and let us know what you think.
