So far, the matches have been fast and intense, which seems slightly ironic considering the most effective tactic is to crouch and move slowly in order to gain the best sight lines and escape routes, but it still focuses on the ins-and-outs of an online shooter; get in, get shot, respawn quickly. It is still fun and the level progression is undeniably addictive. There is enough going on here for Medal of Honor
to separate itself from the crowded market and become a genuine hit. While this most certainly has the early characteristics of a beta, (i.e. awkward load times and a few balancing issues), I am still hooked. Finding your role to maximize your effort for your team is more rewarding than a dozen "Prestige" medals.
As of right now, I can't wait to see how to rest of the game pans out. If DICE can continue to tweak and polish, this might be my yearly replacement in light of the debacle at Infinity Ward and Activision. Watch your back, Modern Warfare, Medal of Honor is gunnin' for your spot.
Be sure to check back with us later this year for a full review when Medal of Honor ships this Fall.
