MoH AA Breakthrough Gold

The Medal of Honor Allied Assault Website (thanks Frans) has news that the Medal of Honor Allied Assault Breakthrough add-on is gold. Word on availability is the WW2 shooter expansion will be storming store shelves on September 22. Here's a bit on gameplay: "As U.S. Army Sergeant John Baker, players join the battle at Kasserine Pass in North Africa, race to capture Messina in Sicily, and finally repel the German army at the historic battle of Monte Battaglia in the heart of Italy. Armed with a new arsenal of weapons, players will fight alone and with squad mates as they rush to stop the Axis powers. The multiplayer game has been enhanced with the addition of Liberation Mode. In this mode, defeated players must be rescued by surviving teammates to continue the fight. In addition, players can drive tanks, and minesweepers can defuse mines. Players can also choose from American, British, Italian, and German skins in all multiplayer modes."

Obligatory bitching about the perfectly justifiable bitching about too many WW2 games post... yawn...

Yes because when you actually think about it there are so many WWII shooters. We've got MoH, CoD, BF1942, RtCW and uh...well there has to more otherwise are constant bitching would have no basis in reality.

Seriously guys, I can only think of four WWII games (not counting expansion packs) someone want to tell me where all these WWII games are?

Note: I am not considering WWII games in the strategy and simulation genres as WWII has always been a dominant setting in those genres.

too many WW2 games ? NEVER ! game developers are following a natural progression of setting & subject matter, - castle wolf,- R6-counter strike-,-RTCW ,-MOH-vietcong/vietnam LOS,...now we will get the various WW2 theaters (italy , russia , pacific ) then on to korea , WW1 , US civil war and our revolution (ahh "musket loading" mmmm) and so on... how about too many SCI FI shooters ? NO WAY ! too many tactical anti terrorist shooters ? FUCK NO ! too many shitty brainless games w/ bad AI / interfaces & graphics ? HELL YES !!!

What a developer needs to do is make a controversial mission that rescues people (of any race or ethnicity - including POWs) from deathcamps / concentration camps. They can avoid showing anything in detail (like actual torture), but I think it would more accurately protray the reason the outcome of the war so crucial to the majority of humanity.

It was about freedom and liberation, and the preservation of human dignity and life.

It sounds like you would have been one of them, blindly pushing jews into the ovens all day with the justification that you were "just following orders." Not everyone is as racist and ignorant as you. Most people just know better.

You'd think he'd get tired of always seeing the words 'REMOVED' on his posts...maybe it makes him feel special knowing Blue had to actually read it to remove it...Anyway, that's kinda what I was gettin' at, waxthirteen. I would imagine that not all US soldiers support the war in Iraq, either. Tho I would also imagine that the German men during that time had little choice...This is very similar to the Iraqi army. Did they all support Saddam? Obviously not, they didn't want to get obliterated but on the other hand, they didn't want Saddams nasty henchmen taking their family...

Call of Duty is compromised of the original MOH:AA dev team. I wouldn't touch another EA Games FPS (or any other genre for that matter) - they don't support it, fix bugs, or even implement anti-cheat.

Activision > EA Games

Rigs,

yeah, i don't want to turn this into a massive debate either, but i think a lot of people don't see the difference between a german during world war II and a nazi. you can even make a defense for german soldiers during the war as well. try reading the book "blood red snow" by gunter koschorrek if you care to get a persepctive on the war that's more than ally sympathy. i'm not saying "hitler was right" or anything like that. my point is just the opposite in fact. not all german soldiers fully supported what they were fighting for.

Not to turn this into political debate (as if it matters anyway) but some people would argue that there was a difference between the Nazis and the Germans. They were not one in the same. This point was brought up to me today by a friend and got me thinking. It's like saying every Iraqi should be shot on sight because they are automatically collaborating with Saddam. Did the Nazi's know they were evil? Are (Were) there that many sadistic SOB's in this world?

I hope this is worth it. COD,although it is pretty,kinda feel strange to me. Especially with regards to the weapon ballistics. It's very much like RTCW,which i hated to the core. I like MOH's ballistics better.

I know many gamers are complaining about too many WW2 shooters but not me! I have enjoyed the MOH series on PC immensly and can't wait for CoD. It still amazes me how epic WW2 was on the whole good vs. evil thing! That interests me much more than a sci-fi shooter (though I welcome them too). Playing these WW2 games have actually given me more respect for what happened 50 plus years ago (like a very exciting history lesson) so bring 'em on! As long as they are quality, I'll buy 'em!

Bitching about WWII games is not perfectly justifiable. It is a logical fallacy. If a game is good, it's good, regardless of setting. There are good WWII games and shitty WWII games. Good FPS games and bad FPS games. Dismissing a game based on the fact that it has a popular setting is stupid. It happens to be a setting that's very well suited to this type of game, and as technology improves, the level to which this multifaceted conflict can be simulated also improves.

Although mohaa does have nice combat, overall the game is out-of-date and behind the times. They need to stop releasing gay expansions for it and instead start work on a new game that includes the great combat PLUS vehicular combat.

Why try to copy Battlefield? Why not focus on the infantry aspect instead of trying to make two identicle games? If you want combat and vehicles, there's Battlefield. For just combat there's MOH. How do you know the expansion pack's sexual orientation, anyway? I thought there was a "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

"I was agreeing with you that there were too many WW2 games. Read properly next time."

There's not too many ww2 games. There's too many CRAPPY ww2 games. Bf1942 is basically the only one worth a shit. The rest are all cheap out-of-date rip-offs of each other.

Hate to nit pick but the names given to games these days get longer and longer. Medal of Honor, subtitle Allied Assault, subtitled Breakthrough. Star Wars, subtitle Galaxies, subtitled An Empire Divided. Shouldn't there be some sort of gramatical limit on subtitles? What's wrong with Medal of Honor: Breaktrough? Stupid observation I realize but I just find it more interesting the standard, "this expansion pack ro0lz" or "EA is suxX0r" thread. Sorry to interrupt. Please go about your questioning of one another's manhood.
