*NOTE – It has been mentioned elsewhere that Medal of Honor Warfighter is going to give players an opportunity to have access to the Beta for Battlefield 4!
The Medal of Honor series has been one that shows tremendous promise in the past (during its World War 2 renditions especially). However, in recent years it has either disappeared or come out and tried to be a direct competitor to Call of Duty’s Modern Warfare Series. The last time Medal of Honor came out it seemed that there was between one and two months where it peaked a few people’s interest and then it was lost in the rubble of Bad Company 2 and the Call of Duty series.
Now it seems that EA is trying to continue pushing Medal of Honor in the modern setting. This is with the knowledge that they have a great consumer-base in Battlefield 3. Not only that, but they are still developing an enormous amount of content for that game.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter wants to compete directly with Black Ops 2. This means, it will feature smaller maps and more fast-paced action than Battlefield does with its enormous maps and battles that rage on for 40+ minutes at a time. (Granted, BF3 also has Team Deathmatch modes that are similar, but it isn’t a truly good use of their gameplay or controller mechanics to play it in such a loose way.) It should be hoped that Medal of Honor has a different feel than Battlefield as far gunplay and other direct movement goes.
The benefit that Medal of Honor has over Black Ops is that you can choose to one of multiple nations and see who is ‘the best’. Granted, when it all comes down to it, will anyone care about that as the drawing feature when all they want to do is shoot digital weapons? Who knows. All that can really be stated is that the bullets will start flying (again) in October and here at NoobTubeTV we are as excited as ever.
