Medal of Honor (formerly known as Medal of Honor: Operation Anaconda[4]) is a first-person shooter video game and reboot to the 1999 original Medal of Honor. Developed by Danger Close, a team within the EA Los Angeles studio, and DICE, it is the 13th installment in the Medal of Honor series and was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 12, 2010. The game is a reboot of the series, taking place during the ongoing War in Afghanistan.

Medal of Honor's single-player campaign uses heavily modified Unreal Engine 3 while multiplayer uses the Frostbite Engine. The game uses dedicated servers for PC and consoles. However, the server files have not been made public and are only available for use through specific Game Server Providers. It is the first game in the Medal of Honor franchise to receive an M rating from the ESRB.

So who else is a fan of the series? I've been following it since the beginning. I've always preferred it over any other war shooters. 2010's reboot was amazing. The campaign had a great story that even made me cry, the gameplay was great and managed to keep me hooked. I can't wait for the new game to release this year. :D

My brother got me into MOH. To be honest I didn't know the existence of Call of Duty till like Modern Warfare 2 (I'm not even joking) I loved the PS2 games and loved the reboot so I'm really excited seeing them improve further. I'll definitely be getting Warfighter.

The PS2 games were really good, especially Frontline. It has one of the most memorable FPS campaigns IMO.

On another note, I think Airborne is really underrated. The game was a bit challenging, but I loved it.

Airbourne was mediocre to me. I always preferred the likes of Frontline, Rising Sun and Allied Assault.

28-04-12, 04:02
Allied Assault was okay. But I think Rising Sun is incredibly underrated.

Linoshi Croft
28-04-12, 04:05
Frontline is the one that I can remember enjoying most. I really would like to go back and play the old games to be honest, I need a PS2!

Carbonek_0051
28-04-12, 04:08
I need a new PS2 as well. I kind of wish they would give the games an HD update and put them on XBL/PSN. But sadly I don't see that happening with the reboot.

Plus you have a Gaming PC, Danny. You could always play them on there. :p

Linoshi Croft
28-04-12, 04:10
Yeah, HD updates would be great..but never happening :/

I amuse myself how I always forget that I have a gaming PC considering I'm sitting on it now :vlol:

Carbonek_0051
28-04-12, 04:13
Yeah, just keep forgetting you can play games on an awesome PC. Make me feel worse about having a lowly laptop that can't play anything. Shame on you. :smk: Eventually when I get a gaming PC I plan on trying these games on it, I'm sure they play so much better.

Anyway, one thing I am worried about with the new MoH is whether or not they will put more focus on multiplayer since they complained about it with the first one.

I hope they focus a lot on single player too, the single player campaign is one of the best FPS campaigns this generation IMO.

In love with the MOH series since Allied Assault. MOHAA was great and I was excited in the mission Normandy invasion.

Waiting for Warfighter. They will give us another unforgettable story I believe. :)

Nate you have a good track record for making a game series thread like this then I suddenly have the desire to play them again. I want to get Frontline and Rising Sun again. Hell I also loved Vangard.

European Assault pissed me off though, not in it being crap but some missions frustrated me.

Haha My bad! I am actually thinking about replaying MoH (2010) later. I really can't wait for Warfighter. :D

Not your bad, I like that actually, I always have games like this slip to the back of my mind. lol
I also can't wait for Warfighter. I haven't played the last MOH game yet. :o
Maybe I should beforehand.

You should. It should be really cheap now. It's honestly one of the best FPS war games I've played. :tmb:

MOH1 and 2 could look pretty decent with HD-upgrades. Polygon-wise the games are good, HD textures would proper make it look really good, and the controls are pretty good, too.

I'll still never forget playing Allied Assault... storming the beach at Normandy. WOW! Call of Duty did it really well since then, too, but Allied Assault did it first. I fell in love with good fps's right then.

(I did play the ones on PS1 but they didn't draw me in as much as Allied Assault).

As for Warfighter; I hate to say it but *YAWN*

I'm tired of COD doing modern warfare and I don't care for this either. I just prefer older conflicts.

Do Vietnam, Korea, WW1, etc!

@interstellerdave: Have you actually tried the new MoH, Dave? It's actually loads better than CoD and separates itself with a good emotional narrative and the gameplay feels a lot less repetitive than CoD. They did a better job at modern warfare IMO.

That may be, but I don't like the modern warfare genre in general. It just doesn't interest me much, especially since it's small scale action that's never really part of a much larger conflict. I like the sense that major battles are being fought that I'm a part of, that involve hundreds of thousands of men, and that the outcome of my battles leads to major outcomes, and makes headlines. Historical games fit me into a real context that I already know and understand. There's a flavor to them that I like.

Wow. They completely revamped their multiplayer for this. It looks a million times better than the multiplayer for the first game. :eek:

Linoshi Croft
14-07-12, 00:17
I'm so ****ing excited, it looks amazing. The multiplayer in the first wasn't the best, although I found myself playing it more than I did COD at the time. I dunno, it just had a better feel to it.

I am completely stoked for this game. I am glad the story seems to be keeping the emotional feel of the first one. I am pre-ordering this the minute I get paid.

Added the trailer to the first post.

I just hope the ending isn't as depressing as the last one. It's one of the few games that made me cry while playing.

I am also glad to see Preacher & Voodoo back. :D

Yeah I just finished the first game today, couldn't put the damn thing down >.<
The ending wasn't what I was expecting, ended up really sad but shows off what really happens in war..which I liked. Also the final words from Preacher kicked ass. October where are thou? lmao

I agree. It's amazing how well they pulled off the emotional impact of what war is like and what the soldiers sacrifice. To me this series is far better than any other war series. The stories have always been good and they don't seem to rely on multiplayer in order to be good. (Even though the MP in this looks stunning)

MoH > CoD, all the way.

Yeah, I've never been that big into COD because of it just being the typical run and gun get to the next point, with multiplayer taking the main focus. Medal Of Honer actually catered to us gamers who prefer to go in solo and enjoy a really good story. From someone who used to hate first person games, this one really changed my opinion on them.

Carbonek_0051
02-08-12, 21:39
CoD was good up until CoD 4: Modern Warfare. However Black Ops delivered an actual good narrative and I look forward to the second game. Other than that the series has been hit and miss for me.

There isn't one MoH game I can say I hate. I've been following the series since the PS1 days. :D

I've played one of the older ones but its been so long I don't even remember which one it was. For once I'm actually thankful for a reboot lol

02-08-12, 21:42
You should go back and play some of the old ones, they are all really good and have emotional stories about war as well. I think you might enjoy them.

Linkin Parks song "Castle Of Glass" will be used for the second game :jmp:

http://worthplaying.com/article/2012/8/2/news/86744/

Linkin Park’s co-producer and co-lead vocalist Mike Shinoda has composed powerful, original in-game scores for Medal of Honor Warfighter that will add depth and emotion to an already intense gameplay experience. Additionally, Linkin Park has included the warrior -inspired song “Castle Of Glass” on their new #1 album, Living Things. Consistent with the dramatic themes and authentic action within the game, the song “Castle Of Glass” looks at the life of a soldier and the forthcoming video elaborates on the many sacrifices they and their families make. Debuting this October, the concept for Linkin Park’s “Castle Of Glass” music video is the result of direct collaboration between members of Linkin Park and Danger Close Games. Produced by Digital Domain and Danger Close, thevideo will feature a unique mix of live action footage edited with gameplay recordings taken from Medal of Honor Warfighter.

“Linkin Park has always shown a great deal of respect and gratitude for our servicemen and women, many of whom are fans of their music,” said Greg Goodrich, Executive Producer of Medal of Honor. “Partnering with them for the Medal of Honor Warfighter soundtrackand the ‘Castle Of Glass’music video is a natural fit for us. We have shared values and respect for these heroes from many different nations – and their families – who serve on our behalf around the world.”

“Linkin Park’s involvement with the 2010 reboot of Medal of Honor was a hugely positive experience for all of us,” said Mike Shinoda. “The opportunity to take this creative collaboration several steps further was something that we knew we had to be a part of.”

I wonder if Deuce and Dante will make some cameos in Warfighter...? I really liked the last game, I just thought it was much too short; the focus on brotherhood and smaller scale conflicts was a nice change from the more Hollywood approach to war shooters, so I'm glad to see they're keeping that up with the release of a "story" trailer. :)

The war in Afghanistan was thrilling and all, but I'm also glad we get to go to a few different places in this one.

Anyone else played Allied Assault? I'm on it atm and it's really good, except it's a total rehash of previous MoH's and partly even of Frontline. It even uses MoH1 and Underground's music.
