Medal of Honor Review 2010: Can it match the Call of Duty : Black Ops success story?

October 12, 2010, By Shawn Wagnon

Electronic Arts’ new “Medal of Honor” game is being released October 12. We have an early review of the game that not only gives an insight into the battlefield and how its realistic feel sucks you into the game. But we also try and see if it can indeed match up to the much famed Call of Duty and be as good as the highly-anticipated ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops’.

There is no doubt that when it comes to realism and taking you to the battleground “hell”, Medal of Honor succeeds in its effort. What is highly striking is the way in which modern day Afghanistan is brought out and presented along with parts of the game where the ‘hero’ kind of loses control.

It also presents war in a way that might eve end up scaring a few with dusty mountain terrain that is demanding and barren. The game though falls short in the story aspect as it is nothing very intricate or even captivating. It also does not feel as smooth and flowing as Call of Duty.

In short, Medal of Honor is worth taking a look at, but it may not pull the audience away from Halo: Reach and maybe one should wait for Black Ops to be released and give this one a little skip when it comes to bringing it home.
