3.0 out of 5 stars Good Appetizer April 10, 2007
By Kevin
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
While it's true that this is not a great game, neither is it a bad game - It's an okay game. It's not as lengthy or innovative as previous Medal of Honor games have been, but It's only meant to hold you off until the main course of Airborne hits the stores. The lower price and fewer levels make that clear. If you are a MOH fan anything is better than nothing, and it's been a while between meals. In that regard Vangaurd serves it's purpose as a small taste of better things to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated MOH Game May 2, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I own and have recently played all four Medal of Honor games for the PS2, including this one. Unlike most reviewers here, or online reviews in general, I believe Vanguard is tied for first place in the series. I would give it an equal rating to European Assault and rank it ahead of Frontline and Rising Sun, in that order.

With Vanguard, as with European Assault, you can raise your weapon and aim through your sights, which makes a big difference for accuracy. You also have the ability to sprint for short periods of time, which helps quite a bit in the later levels. The game isn't terribly long, with only four separate levels, but each level is fairly lengthy. The graphics aren't very polished on the first level, but after that they improve quite a bit. There are a couple of opening scenes in the last two levels that feature some of the best graphics in the whole series. You jump out of a plane and can look all around you and see parachutes and planes everywhere. These graphics are definitely a step up from the first two games in the series.

I wonder if some of the negative reviewers bothered to play past the first level, which is admittedly pretty poor. If you base your impression of Vanguard on the first level, it would probably only be worth one or two stars, but if you persevere, I believe you'll have a satisfying MOH experience. While much less polished looking than Call of Duty: Big Red One or Call of Duty 3 for the PS2, Vanguard is still one of the better WWII shooters for the PS2. If this exact game had been introduced in 2001 in place of MOH: Frontline it would also have gotten rave reviews.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tons o' fun while it lasts! March 29, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having owned MOH: European Assault, and deciding it was a mixed bag, I was a bit reluctant to buy this game. Having read the reviews on this site as well as other internet reviews, I finally decided it would be worth it for a casual gameplayer like me.

It was definitely worth the buy. This game gives you a much bigger adrenaline rush than European Assault, with much more close-combat infantry fighting along with one very fun sniper level near the end which is probably the most challenging level of the game. While I thought that Euro Assault was too a bit too free-roaming and didn't have enough checkpoints, this new game not only has a perfectly-linear objective setup (just like Frontline), but also has user-friendly save points at the end of every major skirmish. On Euro Assault I became incredibly frustrated with that blasted "Medkit" and "Revive" system (as well as the boneheaded squadron members that you had to control); but on this game, EA made the wise decision to cut the crap and make a simpler game with bursts of energy that will give you a massive adrenaline rush.

There are a few shortcomings--for example, the game can be beaten in only about three-and-a-half hours on the easiest level, and there only about a dozen short missions in the entire game. The guns are all the same as in the previous game (except they look better, which is always a plus), so don't expect any innovations in fighting techniques.

Don't get me wrong, though. This is a much better game than the horribly-flawed European Assault, and the speed and joyful simplicity of the gameplay makes this one of the most entertaining games I've played in a while. I just wish it was longer.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent game November 13, 2007
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I love the Medal of Honor series, and generally the games are great. I have to admit, it seems like EA games is getting tired of its prodigy. The game has some fun game play, and has some nice added features. I've always wanted to know why a soldier in combat wouldn't run a lot more. Finally it's in this game. You can run! Also, you can peer around objects to shoot or throw grenades. Finally you don't have to expose your characters body to take a shot. The music is rehashed from earlier games and there is no story. I played right through this game on normal difficulty without any problems. The "Sniper" level at the end was the hardest level. On two levels you parachute into combat, and that's kind of cool, but your landing area is quite confined.

5.0 out of 5 stars great ww II shooter November 12, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was very challenging, and rewarding although after reading the previous reviews i had my doubts. When i actually started playing this game, i found that it has a lot of fun and exciting as well as challenging regarding the amount of strategy involved for the player. I don't agree with some of the other reviews at all. I am a MOH veteran you could say, and have played all of the games, even the PS1 games, that said, this game was very fun. If you like great graphics, strategy and being in the middle of the WWII theater, get this game. This game does differ from MOH European Assault, in that you don't have the option to resore health for your fellow soldiers, but it doesn't matter to me, it definitely kept my interest.
