Im becoming interested in Medal of Honor and was curious if some of you folks that may have played the mp beta would give some impressions. If you've played Call of Duty or Bad Company 2 maybe tell how they compare. I personally like both but perfer BC2 due to spawn points and such. Any imput would be appreciated.
MoH impressions please.(3 posts)
Couple of impressions here.
The easy answer is that it's a mix.
It's tighter than Bad Company 2, the weapons handle a lot better, movement feels more fluid, there's less TF2 style gameplay, since explosives aren't as powerful, and the levels appear to be designed on a map-to-map basis, meaning everything is there to improve the gameplay, not just because they needed to fill stuff in.
The classes are also balanced pretty well, so you don't feel either one has an edge. It appears to me that you have fairly high HP, which means you basically have to keep shooting longer than you might have to in a CoD game. It doesn't feel annoying though.
It has no auto-balance function, the interface is just as awful and slow as it was in Bad Company 2, and when I was playing the beta, the server browser was extremely glitchy. I don't know if the XP system is final, but if that's the case, you can look forward to a lot of grinding between unlocks, as in BC2.
Give the beta a shot, though, it's open to everyone now. Definitely worth trying out.
