The community review is your chance to give your take on the latest big releases. This time round it's the turn of EA's franchise reboot of Medal of Honor.
Medal of Honor does border on plagiarism at times - it does directly lift the pacing and shooting mechanics from the Modern Warfare series - but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Utilising tried and tested mechanics that work makes Medal of Honor fun to play, and the solid pacing drives you throughout the shortish campaign at a decent trajectory.
But we can't help but feel a little short-changed. Medal of Honor, being based on a real war that's still taking place, was a real opportunity for gaming to create something a little more substantial than gun porn. In Medal of Honor the setting and the circumstances are nothing more than a flimsy excuse for gamers to shoot at everything that moves, and we wanted EA to truly create a game that delved into a little more deeply into the war experience.
Movies have their Green Zones, their Apocalypse Nows - we only have a succession of Rambo 3s, and I can't help but feel a little disappointed about that.
Anyway, enough about me - what did you guys think?
