The Last Word With The Cultured Gamers


Medal Of Honor: Heroes 2… A suprise?

Today while in the store, I was looking at games to purchase… and was about to pick up the wii zapper when I saw Medal Of Honor: Heroes 2. I heard alot of hype about the game… and I wanted to test the multiplayer online with my crappy dialup. So I decided to just pick it up, test it out, and worst comes to worst, be a title that kinda stays on my shelf. To my grand surprise, and as my review is about to establish… I was surprised.

Graphics:

The game is very very gorgeous. Probably some of the best graphics I’ve seen on the wii yet. NO I AM NOT GOING TO COMPARE THIS TO THE FAR GRAPHICALLY SUPERIOR SYSTEMS! Very suitable graphics, and some very very nice effects.

GAMEPLAY:

This is where the game blew me away.. I’m not going to concentrate on anything else other then the perfect control scheme. This is the definitive fps control scheme for the wii, and I expect many developers to use it from now on. It is honestly a better control scheme then Metroid Prime 3… who would of thought coming from EA? I did not try it with the zapper, but I don’t really care for it… here’s a few things that really stand out:

  1. To tilt in a direction to look around the corner, just tilt the nunchuk, it works perfectly
  2. To zoom in with the sniper you tilt the wii controller to the right, to zoom out to the left, to lock at a certain zoom distance press the c button
  3. the general pointing is awesome
  4. To throw a grenade hold down B when grenades are selected, and do a throwing motion with wii remote
  5. to reload just tilt wii remote up.

It’s just perfect, that simple.

MULTIPLAYER:

The game features a 32 player online mode off of the EA servers. I was able to test it out with my super dooper dial up… and was absolutely astonished to see it work… and not only work, but work without a lag.

Firstly, lets talk about the messenger system. No friend codes here, you search for friends by username, or you could add someone you recently played against… pretty simple.

There are leaderboards, which is always fun to have.

we have a lobby of which you get to choose what map to have and everything.

Now I can already hear the PC gamers going “oh no chat in game, what kind of bullshit is that.” well I honestly prefer that, because I don’t have to hear mindless ramblings of “pwned” and the such in my ears. It helps my brain not melt. It’s just some good fun.

The only 2 features I have been able to play online are: “team deathmatch” and “capture the flag” Those are the only 2 I was able to notice in my short time playing it.

Nintendo take note on what EA has done here for online… its what we want.

IN CONCLUSION:

Definately worth a buy… however perhaps you should wait until its 19.99$ bargain bit price, cause it’ll reach it eventually. It is worth the full price, however whats the point knowing next year thats the price it’ll be going for.

It gets a 4 out of 5

I agree. this is one of the best games i’ve played for the wii. it has something for everyone with the rail shooter Arcade Mode, the campaign, and the 32-player online which is unheard of on WIi. controls are unmatched too as i’ve never played a console shooter with so much customization options.
