DICE messed it up. Like they messed up bf3 (awaiting to see if the dlc improves it any). Tbh, because its NOT cod, and its NOT bf3 it doesnt get a look in.

Who was it a week or so back that said the industry has too many boring sequels? MoH didn't do good because it wasn't innovative, we've seen the same shit from three different companies, repeated numerous times in sequels. It doesn't surprise me that MoH did poorly.

Companies need to grow some testicular fortitude and change things up. Take risks, and come up with new IP's that engage us and get us excited to play it. I have a feeling that the majority of CFO's and CEO's don't play games.

This is why I'm waiting for the next-gen consoles (even as a PC gamer). New consoles mean less risk in generating new IP's and innovating/changing the way we play games. But when a console is 7+ years old and the favorite titles have been set in stone for that console, either it's a sequel fest or everybody tries to copy it. Innovations draw less attention, and people who try new things or try to give us more evolved experiences suffer as a consequence.

I think its hilarious though I got dowbvoted for badmouthing dice. And yet, the complaints around the world are still rolling in about how 'bad' and 'uninnovative' the game was, and as well all know, Single Player counts for diddly squat.

This is gonna sound funny, but I actually enjoyed the Medal of Honor single player campaign. I played the multiplayer a long time back and hated it, but eventually picked it up to give it another go. I still hate the multiplayer, but I really like the pace of the campaign, as well as the nice analog cover system. I'll be giving Warfighter a chance, but most likely only when it's available used. In short: Yes, they're probably right.

Sounds like their at least trying to add some emotion to the story with the main character's family being killed by terrorists. And a sense of pride is being brought to the multiplayer by having you fight for a country of your choice. They know that for a modern military shooter something new needs to be added to get it above the rest, but they could still add more to make it different.

The single player is the good thing about MoH. The Storyline is one of the best I've found. It may be slightly "linear", and not a great open world mission like Op Flashpoint, or whatever. However, the storyline pushing the missions along are outstanding. I was a reconnaissance operator in the Royal Marines during the time period this was based around, and particularly the opening scenes were evocative of some of the contacts we were Involved with. The "realism" of the fighting outstrips that of comparative games for sheer pleasure of playing - Black Ops, MW2. Indeed the only one I enjoyed more was MW3 - and that was because 4 years of storyline had been waiting for that final moment.
