Medal of Honor: Vanguard

 

World War II has been a pretty popular theme for first person shooter games almost since the genre's birth, and unfortunately it's gotten to the point where I honestly don't look forward to playing these games anymore. The genre is so flooded that I...

Great soundtrack ; Graphics look good; clean framerate

More of the same ; Way too short ; Glitchy AI and hit detection

While the game isn’t terrible, we’re at a point where just being not terrible makes this game just another WWII FPS pushed into a market overflowing with average ones already. While this is probably worth renting, it’s not really something I can say is...

Medal of Honor: Vanguard

 

Adapting the innovative control scheme of the Wii to a first person shooter must be a daunting task. Red Steel nor Call of Duty came close to nailing the Wii's full spectrum of capabilities, but Electronic Arts decided to take a shot with the World War...

Overall:While the game is mildly entertaining to the WWII buff and Wii-mote fanatic, the limited campaign length and brain-dead A.I. puts a damper on an otherwise decent shooter. Gamers will blow through the single player campaign in a matter of hours...

Medal of Honor: Vanguard

 

Each year we seem to get the same lineup: a new Tony Hawk, a new Madden, a new Mario Party and of course, a new Medal of Honor. Various game developers have all but burned out the Medal of Brothers with Honor who are also a Band in Europe genre, also...

EA did a pretty good job of porting Medal of Honor Vanguard over to the Wii. The motion controls actually feel like they were thought out, not just slapped on, and they work much better than Red Steel. Bits of the game still look and play like a PS2...

Medal of Honor: Vanguard review for the WII

 

A crash landing.

Decent controls; The idea of paratrooping

Vague, unreliable HUD; Dull, linear levels; Needs more paratrooping

Congratulations, soldier! You have volunteered for one of the most thrilling, certifiably dangerous experiments in military history: you are going to get on a plane, fly over Nazi strongholds in the dead of night, then jump out of the plane with your...

Medal of Honor: Vanguard Review

 

A suitable competitor to Call of Duty 3, but the overall game feels odd at times.

Medal of Honor Vanguard sits in an awkward spot. It could have been worse, but much better as well. The motion controls end up mixed between good and bad items and the multiplayer falls short in comparison to the heavily-loaded competition on other...

Medal of Honor Vanguard

 

EA LA's latest contribution to the WWII franchise is one dip in the well too many.

Run function adds a new dynamic to gameplay techniques; looks better than the PS2 version

Many gesture-based controls don't function well; visuals still very dark; meager multiplayer options

Medal of Honor: Vanguard

 

EA takes us once more in to the breach

EA's trademark intense combat ; New cover system ; AI that makes war hell

Cover-hog team mates ; Controlls like a panzer ; Too short

Medal of Honor Vanguard review

 

Nintendo's new home console launched in November 2006 promising to revolutionize the first-person shooter genre on consoles. Not one stand-alone title has lived up to that standard, be it Red Steel, Call of Duty 3 or Medal of Honor Vanguard. Yet...

Medal of Honor Vanguard is an above-average shooter made better with the use of Wii controls. After playing the Wii version, I never wanted to go back to the Dual-Shock analog stick on the PlayStation 2 version of Vanguard. It feels natural, it plays...

Medal of Honor Vanguard - Review

 

Medal of Honor: Vanguard puts you into the boots of a US paratrooper taking part in four of the most notable airborne operations of World War II. Operation Husky is the invasion of Sicily, Neptune takes place in France, Market Garden is the famous “A...

Medal of Honor: Vanguard is unfortunately more frustrating than it is fun.

Medal of Honor Vanguard

 

The latest in the ever popular Medal of Honor series is finally with us. Medal of Honor Vanguard puts you into the shoes (or should that be boots) of Frank Keegan, Corporal of the 82nd Airborne Division. You'll engage in battles ranging from Operation...

Medal of Honor Vanguard is disappointing in many ways. There's no originality here, the AI isn't up to scratch and it doesn't offer anything we haven't seen many times before. The controls on the Wii version are OK but don't improve upon the...
