Medal of Honor Patch & EA on MoH Quality

The first patch for Medal of Honor is now available, updating the recently released first-person shooter reboot to version R7. Word is: "This R7 592256 manual update prepares the Medal of Honor client for the Clean Sweep and Hot Zone DLC and includes several fixes and tweaks." The patch can be downloaded from AtomicGamer, Gamer's Hell, and The Patches Scrolls. There's also an interview on Eurogamer talking with EA's Patrick Soderlund about the future of the Need for Speed series where Patrick also reveals they were disappointed in how the game turned out, though they don't necessarily agree with the reviews: "What I can say is the game didn't meet our quality expectations. In order to be successful in that space, we're going to have to have a game that is really, really strong. Medal of Honor is to some extent judged harsher than it should be. The game is better than today's reviews are indicating." The full change notes for the new patch follow.

The game is based on the first set piece battle of the Afghanistan war in 2002.

If you all really want to enjoy the singleplayer, the book "Not a good day to die" by Sean Naylor an embedded reporter there at the time will give you more empathy for the story for sure.
If reading a book is beyond you google "Operation Anaconda".

I agree the singleplayer graphics are not cod, I happen to hate the Unreal engine but it does have its moments, the daylight maps are better than the night missions graphically.
Would suggest tweeking con/bri alot other wise it will look terrible quickly.

The Multi graphics kick major ass though, gameplay is the most visceral to date.


I don't understand the number of ppl who call this game out for being buggy, its not. Usually these same ppl have rushed out to buy the latest fallout Vegas thing which has game breaking bugs that stop individuals able to continue, they still gush about it.
