Are you guys going under the same screen name as in here?

I'm still completing the Campaign storyline. Here is my proper review I owed Natty after I really played the game and get rid all of that EA-hating biases.

The story so far it has been mind bogglingly stupid for a publisher company that is renown for their semi-realistic approach to its games (like always licensing real world stuffs). But it doesn't follow the grandiose philosophical nonsense like Call of Duty mainstream, but still retain some of that "CoD-only poor military planning (tm)" in order for you to be able to perform dangerous and risky actions. Don't expect a bit of realism from it other than occasional F-bombs finding its way on the dialogue and absurd ambush scenarios, which requires you to press certain keys ('e' or space bar) and click LMB at the right time to counteract successfully. The SP feels heavily scripted and very dull compared to CoD, IMHO.

But never mind the rest, the game looks great for a multiplayer platform. All the controls are complete, we have gone so far, evolving from simplified controls, uncharacteristic human player handling, bunny-hopping of Half-Life CS series into this seemingly 100 kg, heavily equipped US Marine grunts. Probably a typical EA FPS games since MoH series (despite being developed by entirely different studio). The movement feels heavy and realistic, might not be great for Hollywoodish action, but the effects made up to it.

The graphic is pretty much fancy to satisfy your penchant for showing-off to your trendy friends. It is just you need sunglasses if you want to keep your eye healthy, just like in the real world.

Sound effects are pretty much standard, the sounds and noises are typical to Hollywood movies.

Lastly, Frostbite 2 engine works brilliantly. Might be a bit taxing on the processor, but the result is satisfying. Seeing the enemy's cover blown into bit, watching the concrete blocks getting chipped by MG fire. Can't wait to see what they'll bring with Frostbite 3.

All in all, it is quite understandable if this game is an award winning one. Personally, I was slightly a bit dejected with some of its features and numerous DLCs and the pricing. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to the MP.

Logical conclusion.

Agree on that! The whole BF:MW thing make the current MoH series seem pointless. Why not make the MoH franchise stick to WW2 and BF series into modern shit while using the magnificent Frostbite engine?

If MoH was as seriously made as BF3 or BF4 with WW2 settings and all the hipster vehicles (like Ratte or Maus), I'm sure MoH will fare pretty well.

MOH is dead. It has been killed with the release of the newest title. The BF series will need to fill the "gap".

That's not the sun. Is obviously a meteorite going through the ozone layer to destroy earth.

Its weird how much more conservative I've become while playing this game. Before the army I would've charged head-long into combat, dying without question, and disrupting the enemy at all costs. Now I find myself moving around the map differently, surviving for longer periods of time, and engaging in ways I never would have. Getting much higher KD ratios, but at the sacrifice of the number of enemies killed.
