I was really not expecting this sort of score at all, it looks like a great game to me but IGN don't seem to like it.

Video Review (http://uk.ign.com/videos/2010/10/12/medal-of-honor-video-review?objectid=37290)

...and the...

Written Review (http://uk.xbox360.ign.com/articles/112/1127285p1.html)

The Score givern was 6/10.

What do you all think?

It's IGN. They are one of the worst with game reviews so I never listen to them.

Majority of the other sites give it an average of 8/10. Honestly I dont care about the reviews, just want to get my hands on the game now!

Lol thanks.

After watching that review, they guy reviewing it is a fucking idiot. All he focused on was it's linear. Okay fair enough but what about the rest of the damn game? The review was worse than normal, even for IGN.

I'm a novice reviewer, and listening to his review made me feel a 7 or 7.5 would have been his score. A six is like a D- in my book and I feel this game at least warrants a C.

IGN has been the worst reviewer these past couple of times.

''The campaign is short and surprisingly boring, filled with largely hands-off scripted sequences and shooting that relies more on auto aim than skill. Multiplayer is fun, but the maps grow old quickly.''

You what other game's also? Halo Reach

The game deserves atleast a 8/10 if not 9, IGN suck at reviewing thats fact.

been playing for a couple hours. I expected a 6 out of this game from all the reviews, and I was actually surprised. I'd throw it an 8 or an 8.5 which in my book is passable. this game definitely warrants a rental. if you have the money, and want a new shooter online *when the servers are fixed* until black ops, check it out.

8.5/10 !!!


and a boring and linear campaign is for example the reach one, but hey stop its halo..... !!!

So far I think it's an alright game, but just alright. A 6 might be a bit low in my opinion, but that's why I'm not going to throw "terrible review" at IGN, the Reviewer or any other.

Every game is so subjective and the fact is sometimes it just doesn't stick with certain people. That's fine - some will love this game anyway, and some won't no matter what good elements it has.

No one should base their dollars on this alone. And even using a meta-critic score has become trivial. Think of how many great games people miss out because it doesn't have a high 80 metacritic score?

As for this game; it's not the COD Killer Battlefield BC is for a big chunk of shooter fans, but it's far from poor.

I have to agree with this. I'd give it a 7.5. My biggest issue with the game so far is how incredibly easy it is. I've beaten every Call of Duty game on Veteran and it was a formidable challenge. Playing MOH on hard is laughable. I'm not a huge COD fan, but every time I run out somewhere and an enemy just looks at me for a couple of seconds before shooting I think to myself "If this were COD I'd be dead."

By no means is MOH a bad game, but you've done everything in this game before. It doesn't innovate at all and thus far into my single player campaign there isn't much story.

However, it is a nice break from Reach and a good stop gap between now and COD:BO.

If you read all of the comments, almost all of them said the guy reviewing it was a complete douche.

I'd give this game a 8.9. I don't give two shits about single player and will just play it for achievements but the online is just like BFBC2. I wish their were more classes but what can you do? Fantastic game IMO.

I like how in the Gametrailers review they call out all the flaws which happen to be the same flaws with Call of Duty games but they never mention it with the COD games.

HA! I find it kinda odd that IGN thought the campaign was boring and I thought it was one of the best shooter campaigns I have ever played.

Wait he complained that the campaign was linear:confused: Isn't every first person shooter a "linear" campaign? Am I missing something or is this guy a total idiot?

I'd give it a 7 if not a 7.5

So did I. I thought it was really intense very much like Call of Duty.

Terrible review. I installed the game on my hard drive and had no problems with frame rate or glitchy graphics. It was a beautiful game.

The campaign is short but awesome.

MP leave something to be desired but is still fun.
