I enjoy playing Medal of Honor (2010) on the PS3, but am traditionally a PC gamer; therefore, when I saw this game on a Lightning Deal for $29.99, it wasn't a hard choice to purchase this franchise follow-up for the PC. Having played it for around 30 hours now, I feel like I can rate the product fairly.

I see the 2 main competitors to this game as the Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises, but it never really lives up to either of them. Essentially, the game feels like a rehash of the 2010 iteration, but with smaller maps and some new gear. Call of Duty pulls off the rushing-around-like-a-headless-chicken with finesse, while Battlefield has multi-spectrum warfare figured out with a balanced game style that allows an individual to enjoy, and be rewarded for, each type of play style. Call of Duty's maps are small but well-balanced, with Battlefield's maps being trimmed in size dependent on what game type is being played; meanwhile, MoHW has very small maps that become linear when opened up. This doesn't allow for a varied play style and that results in nearly every round in multiplayer feeling like déjà vu.

So after 30 hours I am just not into it anymore and have already gone back to Medal of Honor (2010), as it managed to pull off the Afghanistan maps very well, with some great firefights; good, balanced sniping; and, an overall feeling of reward when you finish playing, unlike this latest iteration.

So unfortunately, unless you're a MoH diehard, I'd recommend saving your money for another game.

A pretty sorry excuse for an FPS in what has otherwise been a pretty good franchise. Took a little more than 6 hours to play through in the Normal difficulty single player mode - at least until I got to the ludicrous car racing game portion of the game. I was expecting to play an FPS but this car race through Dubai consumed a good hour of play time because of the clunky controls of a PC trying to drive a race car. If I'd wanted a car racing game I'd have bought a car racing game. The FPS play wasn't great but it wasn't horrible either. But I got locked into easy play mode when I lowered the difficulty to get through the stupid car racing and then all subsequent play was at the easy level.
Frankly, I'm getting a little fed up with the game makers trying to combine arcade gaming, console gaming, and PC gaming into one deliverable product. They're losing me as customer with this type of game!

System specs:
Intel Core i7
8gb RAM
Saphire HD 7950 video card

What first drew me to the game was the idea that different tier one operators, from around the world, were represented here. Each one would have weapons that they would actually be using and then you could play as them, in the multiplayer. As you do well in the multiplayer, you unlock different operators from different countries. The gameplay, so far, isn't too bad. I think the hit markers are a little off. It is possible this is attributed to lag or something, but I doubt it is on my end looking into my actual connection speeds to the servers. The graphics are pretty good, though, I think Battlefield 3 is a little better, despite using the same graphics engine. Playing multiplayer is hard, however, when you play against (probably) these little kids that just play these games every day. I have had this game since launch and I have only logged about twenty hours. I have noticed some hacking, as well. For instance, this pair (fire team) of players were doing these slides out in the open from cover and taking out three to four of us, at a time. In my opinion, the sliding was making them easy targets. Their direction of movement and speed was predictable each time. I had my crosshairs on them each and every time unloading an entire magazine on them, but they did not take one bit of damage. I was dying immediately when they turned towards me. I would then leave the server, as playing with them is not fun. I don't mind losing, which is usually the case, but I want to lose fairly. I also don't see many servers with players, which keeps me from playing this game. I just use this game and a couple of others to relax after working all day. The game is a little fun, when I have a chance to play. However, if I had a chance to do it again, I would probably not purchase this game.

I have not had any problems with this game through Origin, that I have seen others write about.

Unable to install game. After finally installing Windows 7, which the game requires, the game will not install from the DVDs. Clearly marked on the game case are the words, " India Edition - For sale in India Only. Any attempt to export or sell this product in America or Europe will result in criminal and/or civil action under applicable laws."

I was ripped off when I bought this garbage, I was so dissappointed, the game dont work, and doesn't work for about 90% of everyone else who bought this thing, and there's no patch or anything, it's like the makers died or something. Everyone who bought this thing should file a class action lawsuit for getting humped for buying it.

This is my first medal of honor game that i bought. Looking back at the other games that were made I took a gamble on this one because i wanted something new. First of let me say that this game is good and i'm enjoying it this game is almost like COD and BF3 but it's more like in between the two. You have squads but it only two people per squad. You have kill streaks and maps are a dash bit bigger than COD. Graphics in this game are WAY better than COD. So all in all this game is fun...WHEN IT WORKS. The moment I installed the game I played single player to get accustomed to the new gaming experience. I beat 3 missions and then during a cut scene the screen went black and thats it the only way to get out of it is to ctrl+alt+del. and start it over. I was like WTF this is brand new and this is happening on day one of the same hour!!!!! anyway re-installed it problem solved? HAHAHAHAA no well it did for that certain missin but then here we go again 4 missions after i get the same shit. so after closing and opening the game like 10 times i finally beat the single player. It was fun i think the tactics and dialogue and real maps from around the world were interesting. now lets go on to multiplayer. Its fun, when you can load the game. i now get a black screen every time i just load the game cant even get to the main menue without turning the game off like 10 times in a row to get it to work. Im looking at EA forums and for some reason I am the only one that is having this issue...so its safe to say that this is my last MOH game that i will ever buy. O and you are experiencing the same problem and know how to fix it please do not hesitate to let me know. and before you do ask, yes my computer meets all the requirements.

This game is great if you have a powerful PC, it seems to demand a lot to run it on ultra settings. If you can run it on ultra you will enjoy the graphics and the way anything can be damaged. Either way, the gameplay is fun and the story is great. I would definitely recommend this game!

Great Game. Was slow coming to Cordova, Alaska. Took about 3-4 weeks. Make sure if you live in Alaska to have anything sent speedy :)

Not a bad game. A bit short on gameplay but I like the mix of car chases as well as the normal shoot em up. Would have been nicer to have more stealth missions so that you could go sniping.

I loved the campain mode of the prevoious version. This one? Crashed after an hour into campaign mode. Froze my computer. That has never happened to Win 7 in years. Can't play the game unless I start the campaign mode over. Have to reboot every time I start my saved game in campaign mode. Online play you spend 20 minutes of every hour dead waiting to respawn. Take 100s of hours to get any decent weapons or perks. Graphics are ok. Previous version was much better imho. Online they already had hacks a week after release. I may even cancel my COD pre-order. Sick of all the hacks in FPS games. Try borderlands2. fun solo and real fun in coop mode.
