    In a lapse of reason I bought Medal of honour Pacafic Assault what a complete load of rubbish. Dont know whats worse the dreadfull modelling of the guns from the 50 round magazine tommy that seems head shot accurate to about 200 yrds and then fails to stop a Jap charging you when you empty half a mag into him or the abundance of jap anese weapeons, esp sub machine guns. Im sorry but if you shoot someone with a Tommy gun they stop what they are doing.

    Pathetic gameplay which involes no tactics whatsoever (when you have a 3 yrd wide map!!) esp when the same jap jumps out from behind a bush and runs you through. Whic woulds be so annoying cept tfor the 10 minute wait for it re load, its quicker to install the game again!

    One thing that really enoys me in any game is putting you in a surpise postion where you lose straight away but one you know the surprise is there you win. Its pathetic


    Give me brothers in arms where at least you want to play a few times trying different guns and tactics, or even Call of duty which at least has some decent beleivable characters and resonable modelling of the guns.

    and when oh when are they going to get the Garand right, YOU CAN RELOAD IT YOU MORONS!!

    feel bettere now!

    I bought this when it came out, played it once, and took it off my PC. You are right, it is rubbish.

    Well, yes the Medal of Honor series have better titles than Pacific Assault, Vanguard for instance. I've just ordered Medal of Honor: Airborne, where I tried the demo earlier this week, it simply blew me away. Amazing graphics and gameplay, really looking forward to it.

    Yes, MOH Airborne does indeed look very good, but I don't think my current graphics card is up to it, sadly.

    I would reckon so! My wife is wondering what I am laughing at, she doesn't understand the humor you provided me with this little ditty, kfz.

    Havent played pacific assault, but I do have rising sun. Which by the sounds of it, are pretty much the same. Complete rubbish. The best MoH so far is Vanguard. I think it's really, really good. Looking forward to Airborne too and hells highway.

    Well airborne came out today. It recieved decent scores. They said its one of the best medal of honors in the series, but nothing spectacular compared to other first person shooters. Looks fun.

    Let us know.

    managed to get past the sniper bit last night after hours of trying, how, Ive no idea.

    cleared a few villages for the 50th time.


    One question I have: The mdeic is armed. Was this normal practice in the pacific, did the Japanese shoot medics?

    How is the team content. Is it proper squad mechanics type thing...

    Well, I've just completed MOH:Airborne. I gotta say i'm not that impressed with it. Yes the graphics is really amazing and the fact that you get to jump out of an airplane and the general "freedom" where you can land everywhere is great.

    But... The game is too darn short and there is way too many bugs that should have been fixed before it was released. Rag dolls getting stuck in the air is so annoying. Another thing is the AI of your squad, they will spot an enemy 300 meters away, and run towards them trying to bash them in the head. If that was me I would actually take cover and try to shoot them instead of rushing towards the enemy trying to hit him in the head with my rifle! Another thing was the level 10 armored nazis, walking around with a mg42 and had totally control of the recoil, that was just... lame :P
    All in all a pretty game, but it could have been so much better in my opinion.

    Hmmmm, doesn't seem like it's gonna be as good as i was hoping. (but only by a little bit) The fact you say it's over too quick will annoy me. Just like all MoH games. But the graphics look amazing and the way you can control your chute ETC kinda makes up for it. I hope the feel of the guns are as good as, if not better than Vanguard. Time will tell.
