As someone who enjoys playing FPS games i was interested to see how the Wii performed in this genre. First off, while the content, world war 2 (again) has been done so many times, playing a MOH title on the Wii was an interesting experience.
The uniuqe control system offered up by the Wii added a new twist and made what would have been just another MOH instalment quite enjoyable.
The graphics arnt great, but not terrible either and a constant frame rate was a welcome. This game is quite colourful for a world war 2 title, with sharp bright coulours. Some of the more noticable moments involved placing the Wii remote on your shoulder to fire certain weapons. The audio like all the other MOH titles was first class. The animation was well done, with reload animations and gun sounds working in sync with each other. The AI although not great wasnt terrible. There are some flaws, enemys will stand there and let you shoot them sometimes, although this doesnt happen often.
The arcade mode is a nice touch acting as a classic on rails shooter, however the inclusion of a weapon model would have been nice.
In short, a good edition to any fan of this genres collection.
Medal of Honor : Heroes 2 was brought out specifically for th Wii and the PSP, its the best in war games that the Wii has to offer really. Having played most of the Medal of Honor games, along with one of the most recent Medal of Honor : Airborne on the Xbox 360, which dissapointed me greatly. This game too, didn't live up to my expectations.
As I've said, its the best the Wii has to offer, but its still utterly dissapointing.
Your character is Lieutenant John Berg, who is a part of the OSS, (Office of Strategic Services). Basically like the armys special forces.
The game is as always with the Medal of Honor games, set in WWII, with all 7 missions of the game being based on the Battle of Cherbourg.
I love playing WWII games, but this was utterly poor, the story was too short, I completed the 7 missions in just over 3 hours, if the games controls hadn't been such a pain I could of completed it quicker.
My boyfriend has the Wii Zapper, which he uses for Zelda's Crossbow training, but can also be used in Medal of Honour. The Wii's nunchuck sits at the back of the gun, and the wireless Wii remote sits at the front. All the wires are tucked neatly away, and you hold the zapper like you would, like with one of the arcade guns.
As I commented on briefly before, the controls are really hard, sometimes it wont register your turning properly, so will leave you shaking the wii remote in an attempt to turn faster to escape being shot at, most of the time this fails miserably. The Wii zapper made my movements a bit better, but it still wasnt an enjoyable gaming experience. The graphics are poor, and the game is far too short.
I would only recommend this to people for the arcade mode, and to play it through with the zapper, but unfortunately an alright arcade mode isnt really enough to make someone want to buy this game. Thankfully I only borrowed it off a friend, so I hadn't wasted any money. There is an online multiplayer mode available with team deathmatch and what not, but its just as bad as the game to be honest.
As I stated in my other Medal of Honor review, I think they're running out of ideas now, and there's only so many times you can repeat the same kind of thing, they can't compete with the likes of Call of Duty.
I picked this game up for rental after not liking Medal of Honor: Airborne. I have to say this is much better and has some great online action. It isn't as good as FPS on the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3, but is one of the best that the Wii has to offer.
The graphics aren't very good compared to other Wii games and let the game down slightly. The game has lots of slowdown and doesn't register the controls very well. The sound is very sharp.
I didn't like the arcade mode which follows the missions. The Wii will move you and then you have to use the wii remote to shoot the enemies as fast as you can. I thought this was rather boring and was very hard to control and shoot someone.
I thought the campaign was much better and was very fun. It is quite short but the online gameplay will make up for it.
The online is very fun with some online leaderboards, lobbies and friend chat. It is very fun and will keep you playing for hours but doesn't have many modes or maps.
Medal of Honor Heroes 2 (MoHH2) is the second Medal of Honor game realeased on the Wii, following Medal of Honor: Vanguard. MoHH2 is a marked departure from Vanguard and notably uses the Wii Zapper.
In MoHH2 the player takes control of Lt. John Berg, with missions based on the Battle of Cherbourg as part of the Allied invasion of France in June 1944. Players fight their way through 8 levels each with a different setting, including Port, Sewers, Bombed Village and Monastery.
There are three main modes to MoHH2. The Wii Zapper can be used with all three. The first is a Campaign mode in which the player will take control of Berg in a standard first-person Medal of Honor shooter. The second is an Arcade mode, which comes in the form of an on-the-rails shooter in the same style as House of the Dead and Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles. Lastly is the Online mode, in which players do battle in one of 8 arenas against players from across the world.
CAMPAIGN MODE. Campaign Mode features 8 levels, which is a little disappointing. Although the levels are large, and there are three difficulty levels (Green, Veteran and Hero) to each, you can't help but feel that for a Story mode this game is too short - but perhaps this is because I liked the Playstation Medal of Honors whose Story modes were longer because they didn't offer Online or Arcade Modes.
ARCADE MODE. Arcade features the same 8 levels but through the guise of an on-the-rails shooter. Despite being the same 8 levels as in Campaign mode, Arcade mode still delivers a unique and fast-paced experience which has enough to distinguish it from the Campaign mode. Playing with the Wii Zapper on Arcade mode is highly recommended, and makes for one of the most immersive and enjoyable gaming experiences you will have on the Wii or any other console.
ONLINE MODE. Online is where MoHH2 really shines. The game delivers a great online gaming experience. Players have to register with EA Nation before playing online, but the service (as at the time of writing this) is free and therefore well worth it. Players can play in a host of different games including Deathmatch and Infiltration, and people will therefore want to get MoHH2 for its online play alone. I have yet to experience any lag on the online mode, although sometimes it has to be noted that opponents will take ages to die when you shoot them. I have unloaded clips of ammunition into enemies only to be killed by a single shot. Whilst this can be frustrating, it should not detract at all from the online experience. It is probably more of a reflection of my lack of gaming skills! A notable feature of the Online mode is that it is compatible with the Wii Zapper (as are Campaign and Arcade modes).
Although there is not much of a story to MoHH2 - other than Lt. Berg taking down the Nazi strangehold on Europe in a one-man army - this title will appeal to both fans and newcomers to the Medal of Honor series. Graphically the game is great - I particularly thought the first level looked great and detailed. Fans of the series will recognise themes from soundtracks to previous Medal of Honor games, which adds to the experience.
In conclusion this game is a must for Wii owners. Although the Campaign/Story mode is brief, it is more than compensated for by the fact that it is Wii Zapper-compatible, which provides a great gaming experience. This experience is enhanced by great graphics and a fantastic and recognisable soundtrack. Online mode really strengthens this title, and provides longevity and great replay value.
Before I start this game is so much better if you have the zipper as a remote rather than the usuall wii remote Just because it makes it feel more like you are using a gun and is easier to control the soldier. The game can be played with the usual controller and nunchuk, but the zipper is better and you can pick it up for bout twenty quid i think. I think the aim of this game isquite good, simply stopping Hitler invading Europe, so obviosuly this is set in world war 2. The controls work well,and feel natural.The graphics are one of the best on this game for the wii, and the sound effects also work wel when shooting, as there is different sounds for different guns, making it seem more realistic. Overall a really good single player shooting game and one of the best for the wii, because of the graphics. Some of the camera angles can be awkward for this game because other soldiuers get in your way and its hard to know where you are being attacked. The game takes a while to get the nack of, but once you have its fun to play.
Medal of Honor heroes 2 comes from a Long series of Medal of honor games made By EA Games which you can play on PC, Play Station and Xbox.
This is the second game in the series of Medal of Honor for Wii
Medal of Honor heroes 2 is a First Person Shooter game set in world war two. The game is based on the Battle of Cherbourg where you are LT John Berg out on the Mission for the US Army.
You go through Eleven Missions in Counties around Europe Mainly Germany, Italy and France Fighting the Axis and Stopping Hitler taking over Europe.
Now on to the game play you may of notice that I just wrote a review about the Wii zapper and now I am going to tell you how you can play medal of honor.
You can play the by the Wii zapper which you use the Nunchuk as movement and the Wii remote as the gun (aim and Fire). with the Wii Zapper it makes the game fell more realistic as your using a gun and not just remotes and it is easier to play with the wii zapper.
You can also play with just the Wii remote and Nunchuk but this is harder so I would recommend buying the Wii zapper as it only £19.99.
Right now back to MOH heroes 2.
You can now play Online with up to 32 People! Yes up to 32 people. In Medal of honor heroes 2 the multiplayer mode you have around 16 maps (8 Allies 8 Axis) which are maps which you play in the game as single player and a selection of games to choose from
Here is a list of them
Death match (Free 4 All) - Kill everyone in the game the person who kills the most players wins!
Death match (team) kill all Players on the other dream. the team who kills the most wins!
Infiltration - Capture all the other teams flags and the team with the most captured flags wins!
To Play Online you need to register your copy Via EA Games which is a simple ten Minute registration.
When you're online you connected on to someone else's Wii Console so its not done by servers like the other Medal of honors which is a bad point.
They can improve the game a little bit by having Dedicated Servers for online play and having downloadable Maps which can be saved on to the SD card and be played online.
EA have out done themselves on this version of MOH Wii the last version was not up to my standards.
Anyway if you liked Medal of honor you love this game!
