Medal of Honor (first pc erly beta impressions)

For those of you who dont know, if you have bad company 2 and pre-ordered medal of honor you can get into the beta today. I figured i would pre-order it and just cancel it if i hated the game.

Leave it to valve and ea to say beta started today then open it at 9:30pm.

Anyways, the beta includes two maps (a small, war-torn city street map, and a long desert, hilly maps with small structures and bunkers), each with a different game mode (the small map is tdm, while the big one is a "rush" style map, having to capture areas and i think destroy objectives).

There are three classes, soldier with the usual assault rifle and grenade launcher, spec. ops. with smg and rocket launcher, and sniper with a sniper rifle. As you level up in a class you gain new weapons and gear. In the beta it only shows about two weapons per class, and a bunch of accessories.

Since its in the first hours of beta it crashes a ton and has its buggs. None really seem to deal with the actual gameplay though from what ive seen. Thanks to the crashes i havent been able to play more than 45min without getting constantly pissed off.

The game is kinda like bc2 and mw2 had a baby. Movement isnt as fast as mw2, but smoother than bc2. The weapons sound great imo. The grenade launcher isnt a one hit kill, but the rocket launcher might be (sorry but i havent experimented with it yet). The grenade launcher also has a pretty big drop to it and its completely straight on, it does curve a little to the left or right (this with no one-hit kill = no more noob tube sniping) The sniper rifle is pretty strong, but the first ones take 2 hits to kill i think. There is no bullet drop. No knife lunge (thank god). No prone (im pretty sure, but i think i heard someone say there was going to be prone in sp). I would say the player health is smaller than mw2, or bullet strength is higher, which ever, but lets just say you die faster than in mw2.

I havent figured out how to use the kill/point streak stuff yet, since in the bottom of my screen where it shows what i have, is what looks like a d-pad from the 360 lol. From what ive seen the airstrike is strong, but has a very small damage radius, and the radar doesnt take up the whole mini map but about a 75 foot radius around you and rotates around your location very slowly. Although if you are standing still im not sure if you show up, could be wrong though.

The combined health/bullet damage, with the somewhat slower player movement speed means you have to be more careful about yourself and your surroundings. I guess you could say its in the middle of the hardcore and normal modes in mw2.

Overall im having fun, i like the slightly slower pace, i love how they incorporated the "rush" (attack and defend) style from bc2, the gun sounds, and the possibility of this being a good teamwork game. I like it.

Here is a good video of gameplay on the two maps that are in beta, on a 360 though, http://ve3d.ign.com/videos/play/7423...ie/Flash-Video

Anyone else in the early beta? What do you guys think of this game?

The blown-out rifle scope view looks super-lame. That said, I like the BC2 vibe, with the focus on small-arms.

Just based off the video alone...does anyone think the graphics dont look very good? I mean I know the vid is on a ps3, but bad company 2 looks way better than this. WAY.
I don't want to judge it purely off a video, but considering it $60 instead of $50...it looks more closed in like MW2 and less open surroundings like BC2
2 very different games atmospherically and it seems like this one has gone to the side of MW2

The desert map does look pretty fun, but, still on the small side IMO

Yeah, especially the lighting and shadows (on people, etc).

bc2 has spoiled me... the guns look and sound nice but no destructible environments in a shooter for me is a major turn off now. sense of immersion = completley ruined when a mortar strike doesnt even rattle the building it lands on.

If you have a basic gamespot account you can get into the beta for free.

1. Go here -> http://www.gamespot.com/event/codes/...onquer-4-open/
register or log in to get a C&C4 beta key

2. Use the C&C4 beta code to redeem your MoH beta key http://www.medalofhonor.com/beta
(It's slow right now, but I JUST tried it)

I can confirm that this works. I just got a key and I'm d/ling the client now.
.
You should get page with download links for the beta and a different key after redeeming the C&C key.

NOTE: I don't think this MoH key or links to the client get emailed to your account so don't move from the page until you get it copied down somewhere.

Crashed about 3 minutes into my first game, already had 2 kills

Edit: It's also lame that you can't adjust the res in game, I open the graphic options and all I can do is move the image on my monitor. /pcvsconsolerant

This looks like it may be the game I've been waiting for. I heard that the guys who made COD:MW left and went to make this game? Anyone know if that's true or what is?

I was just saying today I wish there was a Battlefield with the FPS abilities of CoD. Battlefield is awesome but the FPS has always been subpar, hopefully this game will fix that and take over as the best FPS. I love the objectives and teamwork needed for Battlefield

Yes yes yes. So this is on beta on Xbox only if you already purchased Bad Company 2, or if you have save data and such from it? I didn't buy it but I beat it...
