Medal of Honor: the first 15 minutes (plus analysis)
Go watch the first fifteen minutes of Medal of Honor here.
Between this video provided by EA to numerous press outlets, press reviews, and the various “MoH Experience” trailers available pre-release, gamers have a very good idea of what to expect if they decide to play Medal of Honor. We can argue about whether this is almost too much exposure, but EA recognizes that FPS fans are looking at their game with a considerable amount of skepticism.
One, this is another WWII franchise that is modernizing itself. In so doing, is it anything more than a Modern Warfare clone? Two, it’s sandwiched between two very popular games, Halo: Reach having already been released and Call of Duty: Black Ops coming in just a few weeks. This is a game that has to stand out for people to get really excited, especially since both Reach and Black Ops are arguably more innovative (Reach with its Forge revamp in particular, and Black Ops with its 3D capability, and credit system/wager mode/contract additions onto the classic Modern Wafare-style multiplayer).
