The only downside to MoH is that it's 4 hours long. Excellent while it last though, head and shoulders above anything the CoD franchise has spat out.

Shame the multiplayer is a broken pile of toss, though!

People actually like the latest Medal of Honor? I did not enjoy generic arab-murdering-simulator 2012. Pile of shit.

I never got around to getting Medal of Honor. Then again I haven't really played any war games since my brother brought home Black Ops and II showed him how piss easy Veteran is, as it has been on every other CoD game.

Also, someone save my wallet from the last day of the steam sale!

I've noticed that most modern shooters (well, "realistic" shooters) are a lot like that. Short campaign, focus on the multiplayer/online aspect (or in this case, try to focus on that). Sucks for the players like me who have little/no ability to play online :lol:

I don't even like playing online shooters, I don't have the reactions for it.

Gimme a good campaigned one, or something like Fallout that basically works like an FPS but with more interesting shit happening.

I'm quick enough on console, having not had a pc to game on for a while my reactions have diminished somewhat though :lol:

I like a balance between good campaign and good online. This is why halo is best ;)

Is that where you see how long you can play a game on Windows Vista without it blue screening? :o

Believe it or not, it's about as frustrating! Some of them are proper shits.

Getting to a couple of them in Lion's Arch and Rata Sum are evil. Although the rocket jump vista is quite fun.

That reminds me. My old xbox died before I finished Insane difficulty. Must try again at some point. I was up to the part in Act 4 where you have to bust out of Marcus' dad's house (I think it was his house, it's ages since I've played it).
