Just played MoH: Warfighter for 3 hours and it’s not worth $59.99

1) Graphics took a big step back.

2) Gameplay now feels like Homefront without being able to drive vehicles.

3) Animation took a step back from the first game.

4) The game engine was way better in the first one.

I played every class before I made this mini review. The classes are ok.

Medal of Honor- First Details Revealed !

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

-Developed by Danger Close (both single and multiplayer)
-Frostbite 2.0
-Releasing October 2012
-The story continues to be about Tier 1 Operators.
-The story is also written by Tier 1 Operators, and loosely follows actual events and operators.
-Now working with over 24 operators for information and feedback, since they were quite happy with MoH1 and a lot more volunteered to help.
-They’re not talking much about multiplayer yet, but we did get a few details.
-The multiplayer will include various international tier 1 factions (British, Australia, German, Polish) and some kind of one-shot, one kill hardcore mode.
-There will also be a co-op mode, but the game won’t have full campaign co-op.
-”There are hook in our multiplayer that are… different.”
-Besides just the missions, the game’s plotline will focus on the personal issues operators face. One example given is about a strained phonecall between an operator and his wife.
-The main characters of the previous games return.
-One of the missions takes place in Isabela City in the Philippines after it has been flooded by a typhoon, creating a venice like scenario with knee high water.
-Again, as it’s based on real events, they don’t want the game to feel like a Michael Bay movie, so you won’t see things like the Eifel Tower exploding.
-However, since it is Frostbite 2, you will see things like the level chipping apart, papers flying, chandeliers swinging, and other things that are more plausible in a combat situation.
-You will sometimes have multiple choices when faced with a situation. One example given is during a hostage rescue, you reach the door to the room the hostages should be in. You can either kick it in, C4 it, throw a grenade in, or use a flashbang. This will presumably change how the next part plays out tactically.
-The rest of this section involves trying to escape the city with two hostages in tow and one of your teammates bleeding out. It’s implied there’s some kind of time pressure here, but not explicitly stated if there’s a clock.
-OXM notes that the biggest difference between the game’s campaign and other modern warfare shooters will again be tonal, so if you’re wondering if you will like the game’s campaign, ask yourself if you want a more polished/improved version of Medal of Honor 2010.
-I imagine this is the mission we’ll see at their March 6th conference.

LA-LA LAND RECORDS IN CONJUNCTION WITH  ELECTRONIC ARTS TO RELEASE 8 DISC LIMITED EDITION MEDAL OF HONOR SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION

Includes original scores from Michael Giacchino, Christopher Lennertz, and Ramin Djawadi

LOS ANGELES, CA – Electronic Arts (EA) continues to make new strides in video game music with the release of the MEDAL OF HONOR SOUNDTRACK COLLECTION. The limited edition eight disc, ten hour set represents original scores from the MEDAL OF HONOR videogame series, previously unreleased material from the award-winning composers Michael Giacchino, Christopher Lennertz and Ramin Djawadi, a 40-page booklet with complete track information, and an introduction by game creator, Director Steven Spielberg. According to Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing at EA, “the box set representing the 12-year-old franchise is an absolute milestone for video game scores. The millions of MEDAL OF HONOR fans around the world deserve nothing less. We are honored to partner with LA-LA Land Records.” The limited edition box set will be released March 1st.

In choosing an appropriate composer to convey the mood of the first MEDAL OF HONOR, legendary director Steven Spielberg was introduced to and impressed with young unknown composer, Michael Giacchino. “I did what anybody in their right mind would do,” said Spielberg. “I signed him up to score MEDAL OF HONOR—and the rest of Giacchino’s history belongs to him.” Giacchino’s video game score pioneered live orchestral recordings of videogame music.

After four highly successful video game scores, the baton was passed to Christopher Lennertz, who also composed the score for the Quantum of Solace game. Lennertz recorded MOH European Assault and Pacific Assault with the Hollywood Studio Symphony, which has recorded for legendary composers such as John Williams.

Last year the game was reinvented and for the first time in its 12-year history, MEDAL OF HONOR left World War II and entered the modern day warfare in Afghanistan. The most recent disc of the collection demanded an intense score that could bring the game into this brand new era, and Ramin Djawadi was brought on for the challenge. Known for his score for Iron Man and the Prison Break television series, Djawadi’s score matches the intensity of the soldier’s story and Tier 1 experience in 2010’s MEDAL OF HONOR.

The increasing demand of the MEDAL OF HONOR scores by soundtrack aficionados led to EA’s musical compendium of the MOH music. The rising popularity of videogame music has created an outcry to the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS) to create a GRAMMY category honoring “Best Videogame Score.” Currently, the Grammys recognizes video game music as part of the category “Best Score Soundtrack for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media.”

EA’s Plan to Beat CoD: Make a Better Game, Twice

Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Despite the colossal success of the Call of Duty franchise the last few years, Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello believes Activision’s premier franchise is beatable, and he has a plan to do it that’s as simple as it is ambitious: First, make a better game. Then make another better game the following year.Okay, so maybe it’s a plan that brings to mind the age-old wisdom of how to draw an owl, but Riccitiello is convinced this is a tactic that’ll work. “If I had to pick the story I’d like to play out next year, [it’s that] we ship a 90 [Metacritic score game] and [Activision] ships an 85,” Riccitiello said to Kotaku. “What I’ve witnessed a couple of times in the games industry is the way you unseat a market leader is you make a better game a couple of times in a row.”

Curiously, Riccitiello doesn’t single out Medal of Honor, EA’s Call of Duty rival this year, but rather seems to point to Battlefield 3 as being their hopeful CoD killer (note: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 pictured above). “I have great expectations to do a lot better in 2011 than in 2010 on the strength of a couple of products like Bulletstorm and Crysis [2], but most importantly for us, Battlefield 3, which I feel incredibly good about,” he said. “[Battlefield 3] is being built on the second generation of [the Frostbite engine], which I think is, at least in my opinion, a class act for FPS. I think we’re going to lift the game pretty dramatically in the first-person shooter category.”

And of course, EA will eventually publish the first game from Respawn Entertainment, the studio founded by former Call of Duty creators Jason West and Vince Zampella, although all Riccitiello would say about it is that “they’re working on a really cool product.”

Slow and Stop Can Win | Medal of Honor


Speed doesn’t always mean fast and Stop can mean WIN.
Slow IS a speed believe it or not but many people think when you say speed, you mean fast. Speed has its place but only when that speed is coupled with a coordinated, swift and orchestrated plan. Battlefield confusion gets people killed and as they say ‘Friendly fire, isn’t friendly’. When the bullets are flying, the adreneline pumping and everyone running towards or away from something, the one tactic that is hardest to employ is slowing down and sometimes stopping.

To the causual observer, real world military action looks swift, clean and deadly. What the casual observer doesnt see, is that the plans have been poured over, trained on and executed by disciplined troops. Like a deadly rattlesnake, unless its coiled to strike, it has no reach and is vulnerable and in order to coil for the strike you have to be willing to stop and pull your unit into position.

As more than a few of us play games like Medal of Honor in a multiplayer environment the issues of not having control over a unit or being able to coordinate completely with other players become clear. A standard breakdown of discipline happens as 12 players on your side devise a way to get done what they think needs to be done. 12 different plans means countless ways to get dead, players spread out all over the map, few covering a buddy and almost no communication. In the real world the end result is a plane full of flag draped caskets, luckily for you it just means a respawn and maybe that ‘loser’ animation to deal with.

Stay Put

Here’s one that never ceases to amaze me and yet I fall prey to it myself in the chaos when I just jump into a game with players I do not know. A plan of ‘take and hold’ turns into ‘take and run to take another and then run back to retake the first’, rinse and repeat. On an objective map holding a location is the goal and arguably it is tactically and technically easier to setup a defense than it is to assault a dug in enemy.

Try this one out next time you’re playing objective based maps, take a position/flag and then set up shop. This works best if you can find 2 or 3 friends doing the same. With 12 men on your side and a typical 4 objective map you should be able to control your objectives and keep from having to retake them. The bonus here is that if you’re not running all over the map, you’re not making yourself a target and you’ll be taking away the big mass strike score chain items away from your enemy.

Games arent real life and real life isnt a game but sometimes sound advice in reality can really improve your gaming. As always, your results may vary depending on the people you’ve got around you and your own skill and discipline. Lead by example and those around you may start to follow.

See you in game.

Inside Clean Sweep | Medal of Honor

With the Clean Sweep download pack arriving on November 2, we know you have loads of questions. What’s included? What’s Clean Sweep? What maps will be included? With that in mind, we’ve decided to give you the entire rundown for the content pack, and rest assured, it’s loads of fun.

What’s it cost?
Nothing! Every new copy of Medal of Honor comes with a free Online Pass, and once activated, you’ll be able to download the Clean Sweep pack with no cost to you. If you don’t have an Online Pass, you can purchase one for $9.99 on the PlayStation Network or 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live, which will include the Clean Sweep mode and accompanying maps.

What is Clean Sweep?
Clean Sweep is an elimination/last man standing styled mode played in two teams. There are no respawns in any of the matches, and there’s a four minute time limit, making for some fast and fun skirmishes. The team with the most players left standing at the end of the match wins.

What maps are included?
There are two new maps and two four maps included with this DLC pack, providing you with a healthy mix of new environments and some environments that are familiar. The two new maps are Bagram Hangar and Khyber Caves, and complimenting those are redesigned versions of Diwagal Camp and Kabul City Ruins.

Bagram Hangar
The infamous Air Base has been a key military installment since the late ‘70s, and now you’ll be able to head into this environment and take out your opponents under the cover of darkness. While in the day, it’s relatively easy to spot out a target, but that’s easier said than done when there’s no daylight to help you see your enemies.

Khyber Caves
There’s an old saying about the Khyber Pass: “Every stone in the Khyber has been soaked in blood.” Once you enter the caves of this locale and find yourself in a firefight with the enemy, you’ll find out exactly what that means.

Diwagal Camp
While you may already be familiar with this rocky terrain, what you’ll find during your Clean Sweep skirmishes is different than you’re used to. Filled with huts and caves, Diwagal Camp is a place where the enemy can be hiding around any corner.

Kabul City Ruins
This urban environment is filled with wrecked cars and dilapidated buildings, creating an area with plenty of areas to engage the enemy. Just keep in mind that even though you’re behind the cover of a building or car, these obstacles are decaying and may hold just as much danger as being outside.
