Medal of Honor is an engrossing online shooter with an above-average campaign mode bolted on. As a result, it's a purchase you should only seriously consider if your console is hooked up to the intarwebs. On a wider scale though, this reboot thrusts Medal of Honor back into the spotlight, and for the first time in ages we can't wait to see where EA take the series next.

Medal of Honor is a rollercoaster. It's fast and exciting and over all too quickly, and although you're on rails, you'll want to ride it again and again. But every now and then it rattles a bit too much, and you glimpse the underlying mechanics, and – really – there are only so many times you can ride the same short track before it gets old. My heart wants to rate this so much higher for all the enjoyment of the first ride, but my head doesn't quite agree.

All-in-all, MoH might not belong in the highest echelon of military shooters, but it certainly comes close. The short, but punchy, single-player is nicely bolstered by the squad based multiplayer and, though that lacks a bit of the customization and replayability of its counterparts, it's far better than standard FPS fare. Controversial? Not so much, but MoH definitely tells a compelling story without being just another clichéd war scenario.

Medal of Honor is arguably just a shooting gallery spliced with a fairground ride and a solid multiplayer accessory which owes a lot to Bad Company 2.

In any other genre, a stellar single player experience would be enough to garner a whole-hearted recommendation. But it's impossible to ignore the importance of multiplayer, especially when Medal of Honor's primary competitor tends to excel at both. Medal of Honor's campaign is an exceptional experience, but the total package simply doesn't beat Call of Duty.

Medal of Honor's campaign is well-scripted and well-acted, and parts of it are superbly nerve-racking, but its uninventive missions and premature ending left us wanting. The multiplayer, however, is a different game. No, it's actually a different game, and it's what DICE does best. If you've tired of CoD, Medal of Honor might be just the medicine you need.

Medal of Honor's leap to the current has been handled well – there’s a solid single player here with some stunning set pieces and the clever Tier 1 mode will no doubt see some serious competition down the line. However, the real star appears to be the multiplayer mode, which despite limited playtesting looks to offer an entirely fresh portion of the game. Activision might have a Call of Duty just around the corner, but hardcore shooter fans will find enough to enjoy with EA’s pre-emptive strike to make the purchase more than worthwhile.

Medal of Honor is the result of two developers and two completely different games, each of which feel disconnected from the other and end up weakening the overall package. Not so much that you shouldn't play it, but enough for it to be pointed out and to dock the score. The top strength of Medal of Honor is in the single-player campaign, and Danger Close has done an incredible job of putting together a tribute to the Special Forces community, honoring their many sacrifices and daily dangers. The same can't be said for the effort DICE has put forth with multiplayer, as it feels unpolished and in some regards unbalanced and unfinished. We aren’t completely not-recommending Medal of Honor but came away a bit disappointed by the entire offering, here’s hoping that Call of Duty: Black Ops, coming in November, can fill that need for amazing multiplayer gaming.

All the parts for a great multiplayer experience are here – class unlocks, a variety of familiar modes, lots of guns – but they don’t come together in a way that makes Medal of Honor a must-play shooter. Military buffs may enjoy the game on some level, but in such a densely packed genre, EA must try harder to stand out.

Medal of Honor's balancing act combines two developers and game engines. Lofty ambitions on both fronts are ultimately let down by very little desire to redefine the game's range or bring out the best from each engine's particular set of talents, but it's undeniable that both single and multiplayer have their individual merits. Neither Danger Close nor DICE are working to their full potential here, but underneath the hype and controversy there's a video game that's still worth a look.

Medal of Honor is almost two different games in one, the single player campaign and the mutliplayer. They both use different engines so they have very noticeable differences. Multiplayer can be compared to Bad Company while campaign can be compared with COD: Modern Warfare 2.

Is anyone really surprised? Failing the existence of games whose success it bravely attempts to imitate, it would have fared better. As it stands, through soaring highs and dire lows, Medal Of Honor is as average as the median of the mean.

Medal of Honor's real problem may be Danger Close's inability to commit to a particular direction for the game. Swinging wildly between the horrors and danger of war and unrealistic action movie moments and hampered by a surplus of boring scripted sequences, not even DICE's talented multiplayer designers are able to elevate Medal of Honor to something memorable.

Medal of Honor's derivative style is cool for a while, but it suffers from too many technical issues to last.

EA has taken towards establishing a precedent for exploring topical subject matter in a video game may be a small one, but it’s still important. But almost everything else about Medal of Honor, while enjoyable, makes it hard to shake the feeling of playing just another military shooter.
