Still no GIGN or Commando Marine... Why they not like French elite groups...?
Honestly, tell me how many other First Person Shooter genre in the market actually have those type of realism in the gameplay, because I doubt there are that many. Most of the reason why is because the developers refuse to cooperate with the military advisers when creating their game because it wouldn't be "radical" enough for the majority of the consumer, hence Michael Bay's style gameplay. Medal of Honor decided to go on a different route by actually integrating veterans to help develop their gameplay, while also featuring authentic scenario such as in the previous 2010 version and the Battle of Takur Ghar. This is about the same as having Dale Dye in your studio while directing a war movie.
The Talon has been deployed in military service since 2000 - for example, in Bosnia for the movement of munitions and EOD (explosive ordnance disposal) to get rid of grenades. It was also used in Ground Zero after the September 11th attacks in search and recovery. It is the only robot used in this effort that did not require any major repair. Foster-Miller claims the Talon was used for a classified mission by US Special Forces in the war against the Taliban in Afghanistan as well as in an EOD role. In Iraq its standard role has been performing EOD and IED destruction missions. Its combat SWORDS version is now being used there in a guard role protecting front line buildings from attack. According to Foster-Miller, the robot has performed around 20,000 EOD missions in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
If they can properly do the "Modern Warfare", I don't see why they shouldn't. If some director made a crappy Vietnam War movie and a year later some new director decides to do an authentic one, would you tell the studio to back off their production? And since this will be a modern warfare done right version, it should be able to represent the type of environments and dangers that our troops are facing so other people, especially gamers, will have a better understanding of it.Stop making modern warfare stuff, maybe?

Also in case anyone is interested, GameSpot's editor did an article criticizing Medal of Honor for not being realistic enough.

PLAY AS GROM! OMG, I MUST BUY THIS NOW!
Not really. But I like the fact that you can only tell it's a polish soldier by noticing "Kotwica" patch on his sleeve.
Oh man, I want the GROM version of the game.
Like no modern warfrace shooter has done this before...When I said semi-realistic I was referring to the voice chatters and how the characters would move or operate under the certain circumstances; such as calling in artillery strike to take out the sniper instead of charging head on. Reporting in situation report with characters responding to the condition, 'Birds taking fire, pulling back for safer distance. You're on your own for 5 mikes. SEAL: There goes our air support.'
Player-called artillery strikes, slo-mo door breaching scenes, dramatic, big explosion scenes have all been done in the last years by MOHs other big rivals. Not that I want to say they´ve copied COD etc., but the gameplay looks no different than the last COD parts and BF3.
And you can judge that from some short advertisement clips and a 7 minute gameplay movie? You really must have a good ability to judge. And lots of optimism. Because I believe a video game can never represent the real thing.And since this will be a modern warfare done right version, it should be able to represent the type of environments and dangers that our troops are facing so other people, especially gamers, will have a better understanding of it.
I won´t buy it. If you want to go ahead and give them your hard-earned money for what looks like a clone of the last CODs or BF3, then go ahead, I won´t stop you. But if I´m not seein any new things that should convince me that this game is radically different from the rest of these "tacticool" shooters, I won´t give them a cent. And so far they still have to deliver and convince me, because all the stuff shown has been seen in one way or another in COD or BF3 (artillery strikes, breaching scenes, remote vehicles, tacti-cool weapons, heavily scripted action sequences).
On a side note, does anyone own the 2010 medal of Honor? If so, what are your opinions, especially the multi-player aspect.
Disregard. Found old thread for game.

i own the medal of honor 2010 version. recently bought it for 20 euro's, totally worth the money. Single player is simply brilliant and takes you somewhere else instead of the standard urban warfare, strong story and good graphics. Multiplayer, i thought it was a mix of COD4 and a little bit of battlefield. a bit difficult but beautiful maps and gameplay. Plus the add-ons you can win were a realistic number instead of the heartbeatsensor, hybrids sight and other bull**** with COD. Wished i've bought this game earlier. I'm going to buy the new medal of honor when it releases. Black-ops 2 sucks anyway.
