    But has anyone tried the Multiplayer. It sucks! It all turns into a spawn rape fest!

    You'll have to wait until later for the full brief, but it scored 8/10 ;)

    those graphics on your screenshots looks very good. can't wait to play it on my new build :D

    what graphics card are you using to play and what FPS are you getting?
    will a 8800GTS 320MB work with the game everything highest, at 1680x1050?

    Nice review. :)

    You missed out a word of the first paragraph, at the top of page 2. It should read:

    I take back what I said in the other thread, the spawning enemies are starting to get on my nerves a bit. I don't like it on medium because it feels far too easy, hard mode however feels pretty realistic. Unfortunately that means I die a lot, combined with the poor save system, it means trying to get to a well defended objective can become infuriatingly difficult sometimes. I'm currently on the second level, after about a million tries I managed to destroy the radio tower, but as I was making my way to the actual radio to destroy it, I died. Never mind, I thought, since I'd just reached a checkpoint, but behold, as I dropped back in, the area I had just cleared had been instantly respawned, meaning I had to fight my way to the radio tower again, and then fight from there to the radio. Suffice to say I got pissed off and turned the game off.

    I don't mind that it's hard, but the checkpoint system is really getting on my tits.

    The third screenshot doesn't link to a bigger image.

    Great. I can't play this on my PC and its one of the few games that looks quite good (BioShock doesn't appeal to me in the slightest).

    I now wish I got a 6800 GT instead of my X800 XL!

    I miss AA... Maybe in-game the lack of it isn't so noticeable but I don't really like the look of the screenshots. From my point of view, the worst thing a game can have is jagged edges.
    However, those textures are looking really nice :)

    i am just finishing the game and tbh all the comments in the review are fair, however there is no mention of multiplayer in the review at all!

    medal of honor has always been about the multiplay - thats why this has been so anticipated by the community coz there hasnt been a decent moh game since allied assault.
    the multiplay is not ready for this game! there is no stand alone server as yet - they hope it will be with first patch in a couple of weeks.

    shame on ea for once again releasing a part finished game, and im afraid to say shame on bit-tech for not highlighting the largest drawback for this game - the drawback that if people know about chances are they wont part with their hard earned till ea pull their fingers out!

    mini rant over, pls carry on.....

    Demo was fun.

    Doesn't run very well, not well enough to warrant a purchase.

    savepoints?! you've got to be kidding me.

    only 16ppl/server in multiplayer? in this day and age when you can have 64 in BF2142/CSS? pft.

    I can see why you'd only want 16 in something like WIC, it'll get too crowded otherwise, but for an FPS? come on. (I heard they were going to up it to 24 somewhere, but still thats piss-poor.

    The series in general has one hit (MOHAA) and many flubs (MOHBT, MOHSH, MOHPA) it's dubious that this is going to be the next big thing in WW2 fps's

    zomg wrong terminology. You load firearm magazines/revolvers with CLIPS. Firearms (aside from revolvers...) are supplied ammunition via the MAGAZINE.

    Demo was alright. I definetly wouldn't consider it a "next gen" type of game. With games coming out with incredible eye candy like Bioshock or Crysis, and games promising great multiplayer like COD4, I don't think it will be a big hit.

    I liked the feel of the demo, but I didn't like how I kept leaning when I pressed A or D, and how I couldn't move when looking down the sights. If it let me do those it would blow my love for CoD out of the water (or at least hurt the deep-rooted love for Call of duty)
