War Torn: EA Shouldn’t Have Cancelled Medal Of Honor

By John Walker on January 31st, 2013.

This morning’s news that EA has canned the revived Medal Of Honor strikes me as a pretty sad one. Not because the last two games earned any merit – they certainly didn’t. They were truly horrible games. Not just because of their gung-ho, one-dimensional, army-recruitment-writ-large approach to current conflicts, nor just because of the both underlying and overlying racism to be found within, but also simply because they were poorly made. Massive explosions and enormous set pieces fail to carry any gravitas, as you’re dragged by your nose through its shoulder-width corridors. I certainly don’t want another one of those. But I do want another Medal Of Honor.

Wot I Think – Medal Of Honor: Warfighter Singleplayer

By John Walker on October 29th, 2012.

That looks foreign! Blow it up!

Medal Of Honor: Warfighter came out around the world last week. Review code wasn’t offered to us, hence no review for release. We bought a copy, and I’ve spent the weekend trudging through it. Despite discovering I didn’t even want to start playing, I’m now ready to tell you wot I think.

Hands On: Medal Of Honour Warfighter

By Craig Pearson on October 11th, 2012.

It's stuck like this!
News arrived over the RPS battle computer that EA wanted to show us their latest Medal Of Honour game, so we sent in elite fightering journalist Craig Pearson. Having donned his ghillie suit to play the game and held down ‘E’ to hack into the EA war satellite, he sent us this report.

Medal Of Honor: Warfighter Goes Too Far

By John Walker on October 11th, 2012.

Son, I'm sorry. Your father... your father is in Linkin Park.

Medal Of Honor: Warfighter began in stirring controversy, and seems to wade around in it. Boasting depictions of real-world conflicts, including those that are ongoing, it seems as much an attempt to test the limits of what will be tolerated in a modern war shooter as it is an attempt to follow up on last year’s dismal revival of the franchise. But perhaps this time they’ve gone too far. It’s hard to see how this will be countenanced. They’ve put Linkin Park in one of their trailers.

Medal Of Honor: Warfighter

By John Walker on August 1st, 2012.

I think I can see the last original idea we had!

One of the hoary old jokes we lazy gaming hacks like to do is dismissively refer to “ManShooter VIII” or “Gears Of Duty MCVIIXI”, sneering at the homogenisation of the mainstream industry. But really, the sarcasm is going to be undetectable if games keep calling themselves Warface and Warfighter. The latter is, of course, the moniker of the second Medal Of Honor game in the rebooted series. And there’s another trailer of its single player (sort of) below.

Eyes To Slow-Mo, It’s The Medal of Honor Wrftrr Trailer

By Craig Pearson on March 7th, 2012.

Geoff, why did it suddenly get a lot warmer?
Yup, the M’dal orf Hrnnnr MANWARFIGHT trailer does that thing where there’s a portentous, dark opening with stealthy soldiers before scenes from the game get all piled-up at the end. You need to be a hummingbird to watch the damn thing properly. So here to fill you in with more details is guest hummingbird correspondent, Hummingway. sdfskfjhgasdfiuefliasdflaisdhf””dda=–3. Erm, right: so that’s what happens when you invite a hummingbird to the keyboard. My mistake, I should have seen that one coming. I’ll take that on the chin. I’ve managed to find out some information, so you can watch the vide and read that while I pick chunks of bird out of my beard.

Guess What You Do In Medal of Honor: Warfighter?

By Craig Pearson on February 24th, 2012.

That man is staring down war like it is a thing
If there’s a surprise in the announcement that there’s to be another game in EA’s modern reboot of the Medal of Honor series, it’s that the subtitle “Warfighter” survived basic training: no-one in the development studio giggled, no-one in marketing made this face >:(, John Riccitiello didn’t suddenly come to his senses on the toilet and tell them to ‘drop it and call it “2”‘? Not only is it a redundant mess of a name, but it’s not even a unique redundant mess. I expect Tom Clancy to hold a mock funeral, just so he can commence grave-spinning. So yes, there is a man, he’ll be fighting in a war. Other details are somewhat missing in action.
