"How many people play Men Of Valor?"

The mp demo released did no favors for this game. So, I am sure there are many gamers who decided not to buy based on the demo. I myself almost didn`t buy based on the mp demo. But I think we will see more gamers as the weeks go on.

VUG is taking their time for some odd reason switching their demo servers over to the full version. Not to mention we are pressing them to release actual dedicated server software.

MoV really is a sleeper hit imho. Sure it has a few niggles, but on the whole, the game is greater than the sum of its niggling parts.

Ok, I've downloaded the demo, it seems to be the right size, but when I try to run it I get the message "program too big to fit in memory"

I've got a gig of RAM, no other programs running, so WTF?

"If you want MP in a jungle setting, get Vietcong"

The new Jungle Warfare king is Men Of Valor. The mp demo does no justice to the final release version. The mp maps compared to VCs are mind blowingly cool. Not to mention the engine looks sweet.

I loved VC. But I took a chance on MoV, and I am pretty blown away by what I found.

Vietcongs MP was actually pretty fun, surprisingly since the sp game was meh.

If you want MP in a jungle setting, get Vietcong - even the demo had much better netcode plus the stream map that was in the MP demo was far more open (not forced to follow paths).

There's something wrong with the how the game moves and plays, like it's sluggish and unresponsive. Shooting people with the bolt-action rifles is extremely hard becuz of this mouse lag, and it's not the frame rate causing this. Player models are far too large, probably done to give casual gamers more of a "cinematic" feel to the game: "I want to see my enemies easily, and not shoot at small targets behind cover." I agree that having combat occur at too long ranges can be pretty crappy (Joint Operations), but you can go the other extreme and make it TOO close. At least 80% of all of Pacific Assault's battles occur within a mere 10 yards of your enemies. And it's not just because it's a jungle setting. You can be in a huge clearing, and just charge at your enemies while strafing back and forth. I managed to drop 3 enemies with my SMG by just doing this. No tactics, nothing. Just charge and shoot. Another funny thing is how common two players can be at point blank range, unload their SMGs at each other, and both guys will be just runnin around like nothing happened. The guns can be too accurate at times during burst fire running, and then too inaccurate at other times during full auto point blank. Shrug.

Spawn camping is very common. There's nothing punishing players for charging into the enemy spawn and waiting for them to respawn. The demo only has a couple weapons per side, and the heavier MG-like guns aren't in there. But once they are, I can imagine being ripped to pieces right when players spawn is going to be too common.

I do like the "incapacitated" system. It's cool. You get shot in a non-lethal way, and you then flail about on the floor and can call for a medic, your viewpoint is actually flailing too. Medics revive you to full health if they get to you. Medics can also heal themselves very easily while they are taking damage though, which can sometimes make them supermen on the battlefield.

Well MOHPA is gonna be a big failure as far as multiplayer goes. I don't see how it could succeed. They shoulda just hired the DOD team to come over and tell 'em what to do and what not to do.

Such a bad netcode.... takes about a second before your gun fires after you have clicked, mounted mg's lag about in the same manner, and every server seems to take a crap every 4 mins. It really feels like I am playing a buggy, laggy, and dull version of CoD, but set in the jungle. Why don't these MoH guys make a good game for a change?

I liked everything about the SP demo except the firing delay and the performance...

Can't say I had this problem. Might want to try turning down some graphic settings if this is actually happening.

If MoH: PA is essentially RtCW MP, with a nice graphics enhancement, I'm all over this title.

Does your character still take the time to ponder the moral and ethical ramifications of you having clicked the fire button.. or does he just make with the killing now?
