This is the first Medal of Honor video game series where the player can save their progress during a game at a save point (which is by checking the phone in this game). Most of the other Medal of Honor games makes the player start all over from the beginning of the stage if they die. See more »
This game is a bit like "Saving Private Ryan" - the best bit of the thing is the starting bit. The Pearl Harbor opening level was hugely intense, realistic, not at all irritating and generally beautifully done - a ten-star job. However, after that, we descend into flat territory. The game's graphics are very gritty, there are no memorable deaths in the game, the objectives are pretty predictable and the explosions pretty scrawny - and I've only reached the Rise of the Philippines. I am sure that the game will get better after this disappointing level, but I doubt it will be anywhere near as good as Medal of Honor European Assault, and the poor graphical qualities leave a lot to be desired. However, the tons of additional features ensure that it is an entry to the Medal of Honor series - but it is the game itself that matters, and on that tone, it isn't brilliant.
I am hoping that this game will get better - it may have only cost me £4.99, but I would be disappointed to play a pants addition to an honoured game series. No masterpiece so far. 7/10
