    @Tryhard

    Cheers! I might have to give it a go then. I'm thinking rental first and then buy it if it's any good.

    Some things I learned,Spec Ops gets a skill to look through walls for a few seconds.While, wait for it,recon gets a bipod and able to spot.lol

    I like the throwing of the UAV toy plane animation,but not the fumbling to pull the pin when throwing a proximity mine every time.

    There is also lag compensation like in BF3 so people with poor connections wins and will shoot you round corners.I have seen plenty of 1v1 WTF moments.

    The driving segment looked quite fun on the giant bomb quick look. Scripted but kinda like Bourne driving.

    GIANT BOMB QUICK LOOK ALmost 2 hours long. Does look mint. But I'll pass for now until it comes down in price. Too many other good games that are not military shooters on horizon.

    looks like the first real review... 6.5/10

    http://www.nowgamer.com/ps3/ps3-reviews/1647127/medal_of_honor_warfighter_review.html

    blandness confirmed basically. looks like they tried to copy COD, and moved away from original game - which was the only thing going for it.
    Reading that review, its an absolute load of shit. For starters, its a review of the CAMPAIGN ONLY, they havent even touched the Multiplayer - If people only reviewed the campaigns for COD or Battlefield 3 they would most likely get 6.5/10 too.

    If EA didn't want rushed and incomplete reviews perhaps they should have given the press copies of the game before release day?

    That's a bit harsh. It's not been rushed and it's not really a CoD clone either. They've purposely steered away from the MOH MP design (which was a COD clone) and tried to build something that plays in similarly sized maps but with more teamplay (predefined soldier classes a la BF and the Fireteam Buddy system).

    Fair point, but that NowGamer review is clearly a "look at us!, we stayed up past our bedtimes so we could review this game!" review - not even mentioning the MP is inexcusable.

    Im happy to wait a few days for some proper reviews before buying it

    willing to bet other reviews don't fare much better either.

    it's a rush job and a COD wannabe.
    At about the driving section (It was a good thing, but wtf did they draw it out so much... :rolleyes: ) of the Giant Bomb Quick Look I just knew I would question anything above a 6.
    I reckon EG may report below that. Average is being kind to it on this impression. Review copies supposedly not going out in advance typically isn't the best sign of enthusiasm, either.

    Points should also be docked for lackadaisical tomahawk integration. I thought the business end of one would be embedded in an enemy forehead, after the door had been shattered open.

    Incorrect, otherwise Dan Whitehead, for example, must have received it and reviewed it on US release day.

    Embargoed until the US release is one thing, not giving the press copies until it's in US stores is another.

    If you say so.

    Fact is, both games came in hot due to multiple factors (but largely due to day 1 patches). We got around ours with certain events and other situations we were able to manage, DCG haven't been so lucky.

    So my point is completely correct, BF3 was made available to reviewers prior to release (if only two days ahead of the US release) while Medal of Honor was not, in fact members of the public had bought it before the press copies turned up.

    And speaking of reviews, Dan didn't think much of it, 5/10

    Includes MP commentary too.

    Someone should make a boxing manager sim set in Newcastle - they could call it Wor Fighter.

    Just read that EG review,hehe that was a heavy punch of reality.

    How the hell can these game companies release such crap in todays financial climate?

    With one swing and a miss and your studio is shut down.

    eurogamer 5/10... STINKER!

    how's that nowgamer review looking now? :lol:

    EG mention the identity crisis problem too... seen it a a mile off. this is a johnny no-namer dev getting told what to do by the publisher - with someone else's engine. results were predictable.
    The score is bollocks too. Reading the text if it wasn't a big publisher that would have been lower than five. I don't know why EG even bothers with scores (actually that's a lie, I know why, Metacritic) given they rarely have anything to do with the text it publishes.

    Strange that a Premium membership for BF3 on console actually applies to get a 50% off code for the PC version on Origin.

    This may or may not mean I've picked it up for 20 quid, I did quite like the MP when I played it at the Expo I just thought the respawns were shit and it looked pretty horrible on the 360.

    Don't worry, Future Publishing are coming in with 14/10 scores to get the metacritic up.
