Have You Played… Brothers In Arms: Road To Hill 30

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Like Graham, I’ve always felt bad for the Brothers In Arms series of games. The WWII shooter was well into its fatigue stage by the time these games got around to doing something intelligent with it. Rocking up to the beaches of Normandy…

EA: Medal Of Honor’s Not Dead, Just Sleeping

EA's officially dishonorably discharged the Medal of Honor franchise. That's unfortunate for a number of reasons, but mainly because it made John sad. As he put it, "It needs new direction, not shelving until the next inevitable reboot in five years time, once Battlefield has run entirely aground." So, now it's time for another episode of Good News, Bad News, Picture of an Ostrich. First,…

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

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…

Well, Looks Like That’s It For Medal Of Honor, Then

Oh Medal of Honor. You've traveled around the world, through time, and between the hands of countless developers. You've seen some things, man. But in recent outings, you've lost your way trying to play rigid railroad conductor to ours, and Warfighter clung so tightly to the straight-and-narrow that it ended up careening right into the bargain bin. Also, there was that whole Linkin Park thing.…

Medal of Honor: Worf Fighter Fights Some More War

Here is a controversial statement: aubergines are horrible. Here is another controversial statement: I don't think there's an upcoming videogame I'm less interested in than Danger Close's Medal of Honor: Wharf-fighter. It's not really its fault, or its developers' fault. They're taking advantage of commercial realities, and even if said commercial realities are deeply disappointing to any gamer with more than six brain cells to…

Medal Of Honour review

I’ve finished the single player campaign of the reboot of Medal of Honour, and I’m fully prepared to tell you Wot I Think. The multiplayer is such a separate game that it was developed by a separate studio, and we’ll be reviewing it after the game’s been out a while. (We're going with "HonoUr" just because it saves wiggly red lines when typing.) So below…

Medal Of Honor: Beta, Criticism

Ah, time for fresh manshoots. The Medal Of Honor beta is open and ready to accept you. You should probably sign up there if you want to shoot some men. What you should definitely do, however, is read Ian Bogost's scathing analysis of EA's decision to drop the "Taliban" name from their game: "Medal of Honor is just another well-produced first-person shooter, one that invokes…

Afghan Wig-Out: Medal Of Honor Beta

I'm not sure what the fine array of gentlemen, gentlewomen and gentleothers who frequent this site of ours think of EA's upcoming Medal of Honor reboot. However, you may put your opinion, whatever it is, to the test in ten days' time. On October 4th, EA are holding a three-day open beta for their Call of Duty rival. They appear to have two intentions: 1)…

UK Politician “Shocked” By Medal Of Honor

And not just by the spelling. Yahoo news are reporting that British defence secretary Liam Fox has urged retailers not to stock the next Medal Of Honor game, due to players being able to take on the role of the Taliban in the game's multiplayer. "I am disgusted and angry," said Fox. "It's hard to believe any citizen of our country would wish to buy…

Medal Of Honor’s Taliban Multiplayer

Medal Of Honor, the forthcoming series restart from EA, was revealed in June by Eurogamer to allow players to play as the Taliban in multiplayer gaming. A tabloid sensation with young people being encouraged to join terrorist organisations? Perfectly normal online gaming that doesn't represent real life? Or simply awkward taste? "It's a game." say developers DICE.

BF3: A Mystery Wrapped In A Beta Engima

We know nothing about Battlefield 3. Nothing. We don't even know if there'll actually be battlefields in it or not. Why, they might well be war-meadows instead. Or fight-commons. WE KNOW NOTHING. That hasn't stopped EA from announcing a beta, and using it as a lure to make you buy the new Medal of Honor. Not just its standard copy, oh no. Purely its limited…

Medal Of Honor + Linkin Park = Huh?

Sure, while they're all playing Starcraft II the rest of us have to find something to do. How about grumbling at a band? Did you even know Linkin Park were still going? It was only this afternoon that I was ranting at my poor, disinterested girlfriend that it's a travesty that Linkin Park were ever so popular, while no one's heard of Idiot Pilot. Silly…

Medal Of Honor Reborn

Cor, big gaming news: EA have announced Medal Of Hono(u)r is to return next year, all up-to-date and modern. What they've done here, you see, is they've taken a popular WW2 series and updated it to present what I'm going to call "modern warfare". And frankly, good. Because I liked the Medal of Honour games even if they weren't quite the most cutting edge, and…

Medal of Honor: Airborne – PC Gamer Review

Our roving, investigative, and surprisingly tall reporter Quintin Smith has reviewed Medal of Honor: Airborne for PC Gamer, and it's gone up on their site. I link it because, well, it's one of the best written reviews I've read in ages. And the game's rather fun too. "I responded by throwing all my grenades in random directions and leaping behind a piece of cover that…

Wolfenstein of Honor

I'm reviewing Medal of Honor: Airborne (it's for someone else, so thoughts on it another time - briefly though, it's pretty good, pleasingly non-linear but fairly silly). I just stumbled across this. It's a Nazi Super-Soldier. In Medal of Honor. Gas mask, experimental chaingun and everything. He took about six grenades to kill. I can't stop laughing.

Medal Of Honor: Airborne Demo

You can download it from here, at the princely size of 1.3gb. Word on the street (well, in the pub at least) is that this is a pretty good iteration of the soldier series, at least offering some competition for the mighty Call of Duty games. Airborne contains lots of hot parachuting action, violence against Nazis, and broad levels to allow you some shooting freedom…
