EA: Medal of Honor Will Overtake Call of Duty

 Pages PREV 1 2
 

I played the MoH Beta and I found it fun for awhile, but I found a few things lacking. What sold me on the CoD series was primarily the pace that has been established which other first person shooters has yet to accomplish. BF series is understandably lumbering with the sheer amount of level there is in the game which it would have to trade off for the increased flow. Medal of Honor had the map size (Team Death Match Map I am discussing, not the Rush esq mode) that were somewhere in the realm of CoD4 to Counter-Strike. Though explosives and tubes are far more frustrating in the CoD series I felt it a less frustrating game then MoH Beta, or BF2. BF2 had the issue of if you weren't sniped you were blown up by a vehicle. Last true gripe I had with MoH was that there was no hardcore mode to enjoy. BF2 did it to rope in that crowd from the CoD series so why didn't they do it for MoH? Though it was only the beta, so only time will tell what will happen and the sales figures will be our answer.

And then Command & Conquer will overtake StarCraft. Killzone will overtake Halo. Persona will overtake Final Fantasy. Two Worlds will overtake The Elder Scrolls.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cats and Dogs living together, Mass Hysteria!!

Seriously though I might actually give Black Ops a look. I was prepared to write off more CoD games, but I've liked what I've seen of Black Ops thus far.

i kind of hope it doesnt
for the same reason i didnt want Reach or Bbc2(and 3) to be bigger than mw

cuz if a game gets bigger than mw
all the the lil shits and modders and campers will show up on better games

Cheerful optimism is just so cute right before a sanguinary-storm of mutilated dreams.

If Modern Warfare 2 sold as well as it did and Activision provides enough kool-aid amnesiac pills, then I hate to tell you EA: It does not look good.

But what if the Hive Mind absorbs EA? Or Microsoft milks Halo into a dehydrated Call of Duty release model? Or if Square Enix actually looks up the word "Final" and ends it? Or if Bethesda gets high off of some bad scrib jerky and forgets what "The Elder Scrolls" even was? I think some of those might actually happen come to think of it

Ahhhhhh!!!

not from what i've played. the MP is shitty.

Keep Dreaming EA

Aww its like one of those movies when the plucky geeky and all-round failure boy tries to surpass his muscly, smart, charismatic, athletic popular rival to get the girl.

Except this time they will fail, fail hard, fail so hard that even his parents will facepalm and deny they had any part in his creation. And the girl? She will laugh hard as she rides in the rival's solid gold car back to her place to have some fun.

Ahahahahahahahaha.

Even if you hate CoD, you know that's bullcrap.

I personally think that MoH will be a success because EA has a chance to start over and make MoH much better. But I also think that EA have failed so epic-ly in the past, *cough* FIFA *cough*, that this game might just not live up to it's potential.
Whereas Black Ops will undoubtably be a "win" because everyone knows how "super fantasmical" Call of Duty is and this will make sales another "win". I'm hoping the game will be good. Like. I mean Modern Warfare 2's campaign was exciting and covered my face with happy thoughts but it was JUST TOO SHORT!
Wow. Do I know how to be a bitch.

Dont worry chums.

When Timesplitters 4 comes out we wont have to deal with Ea anymore.

Unless they publish it.
Then Im pretty sure we are screwed.

This is why Medal of Honor is a failure. I enjoyed the campaign, and the multiplayer wasn't the worst I've ever touched. But as a competitor with Call of Duty, this one falls far below the bar, and EA has no one to blame but themselves. You can't beat someone at their own game by doing the same thing.

I want to capslock haha over and over, but I will let the sales numbers do that for me.

Actually people have beaten people at their own game since time began. It just takes time to polish your tools and be able to overtake them. Considering how MoH was just necroed I didn't think that THIS game would over take CoD.
