Medal of Honor is a series that, when it originally hit off the back of Halflife changing FPS forever, was widely praised for ripping Saving Private Ryan.

Since then the series has went downhill, overshadowed by Call Of Duty, then, pathetically going modern using embarrassing marketing of mens faces pixeled out.

Now it's back, from widely lauded developer Respawn Entertainment using incredible VR technology to make the game interactive around it's shitty over-scripting.

Could this be what the franchise needs to push it forward? By looking back, introspectively, it's actually, going forward?

It would be very hard for MOH to be great again because there are so many war FPS games. When it came out, there wasn't really anything like it. Now they are all the same shit for the most part.

Nah. What we really need is proper tactical WW2 shooter like Hidden & Dangerous 3. (preferably made by Czechs)

I would have prefer respawn (also original MOH allied assault developers too) would have make it traditional WW2 FPS or will make one after this one.

When VR stops requiring having a massive brick strapped on your face, that's perhaps when I'll consider it a worthwhile gaming activity.

It's worth noting as well this will have multiplayer.

Provided EA (and they most likely will) don't inject their cancerous nature into the game, it could potentially be a blast.

Pavlov and and Onward are wonderful, VR technology inherently enhances the genre but when it comes to WW2 era is has fallen short.

I'd certainly welcome a retread of WW2 for a single player game. I'm talking about a fully fleshed out campaign with multiple story lines across all the theaters. Western front, Easter Front, Pacific, North Africa, etc.

I'm tired of seeing the same bullshit 5 levels in every game. D-Day again? Boring.

I wish these devs would bring AA experiences like these back to console and stop wasting their time on VR.

No... it just usually sucks ass.

I got PSVR for online MP and I never once had a good experience. I also got it in anticipation to playing Ace Combat 7 online.. and that's not even a thing. It has SOME VR integration, but not where I wanted it...

Right?.. and with 47 cords and limitation to movement when you need free movement... I want Google Glass dammit..

Although that hasn't even panned out to Stadia levels to date.. lol. Looked awesome though. If there was something like that I could play games on in a VR world I would be MUCH more interested.. problem is that's probably still further away than most might guess.

Pavlov has been around for a while, it's the most popular VR game on Steam.

Such an amazing game. And Medal of Honor Allied assault was the reason why Activision made Call of Duty in the first place.

MOH 2010 and warfighter are by far most scripted games ever made. even worse than COD campaigns.

respawn are great developers as shown in titanfall 2 and falled order. i wish they made WW2 MOH a traditional game instead of VR one.

From the looks of it, with it's interactivity (throwing puts and pans, shooting and grabbing grenades to throw-back) it's catching up with Halflife 2, better late than never.

MoH the first was fun when we played it in networking class in high school. That and UT99 was my favorite part of school.

All those computers on the LAN. Good times.

I'm a bit curious about shooters in VR. Not sure if I'll like them at all. I'm really interested in VR for cockpit games. We'll see though. I'm def going to grab a headset this year at some point.

Yeah, that looks fun as hell that's one of the things not many people mention about VR is the interactivity not only does it add to the immerse but it makes the game alot more fun.

Case and point lol.

Better take: Medal of Honor was always wack and highlighted all the short comings of military fps and BIG fucking air quotes "tactical" shooters. Because when you gutted all the fun movement options n technical expression the player had, the larger variances between what the weapons were good at and their value to map design, and slowed the game down to a positioning challenge with low ttk, all you were left with were "tactics", shit better shooters had anyway.

For every Siege n Counterstrike or even a Battlefield, you got dozens more of games like the OG CoD n Medal of Honor, shallow FPS games that got carried by presentation and because they simplified the game of laser tag that was online multiplayer anyway. VR isn't going to change that, it would still be shallow. In fact more shallow, because now you really don't have to worry about movement.

Would rather hang out with Ghost and big shill the new Doom. I'll take a game like Swat or those pre-plan heavy games like OG Rainbow Six tho.
