    wanderer5's Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 (Wii) review

    Avatar image for wanderer5

    Heroes 2 is the best MoH game since Frontline.

    Medal of Honor have been a series in which started out great but went downhill for a while. Lucky with Medal of Honor: Heroes 2(and also Airbrone) the series has gotten better. In Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 you play as John Berg from the OSS who need to stop Hitler from deploying his new rocket, the V2.

    What one of the great things about Heroes 2 is how this game is using the Wiimote and Nunchuk. Similar to Metroid Prime 3 control scheme, you point the Wiimote toward the screen and move it around to aim. There are many things that the Wiimote and Nunchuk is needed. For example in order to use the Artillery, you wheel the the Nunchuk clockwise or counter clockwise to move it, while you pull the wiimote forward to fire. Overall while there are a couple flaws with some of the techniques, it still a great control scheme.

    The graphics aren't really anything special, but this game has a lot of nice blooming effects. However textures look a tad ugly and the character models don't look great either. Like some of previous MoH games and other WWII games(like Call of Duty), this game has great sound. Through some of the sound effects are kinda weak.

    This game also has a good amount of lasting value. The single player has 8 levels, which all all of them could take about 6-8 hours to beat. There is also Arcade mode which is a rail shooter version of Heroes 2. Finally one of the biggest things about this game is it online multiplayer. The Wii haven't been having good online games, but Heroes 2 has change that. There are three modes which are Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Infiltration(Capture the Flag). All of these modes are really fun. There are also hardly and laggy through this online.

    However the online has some flaws and compare to games like COD4, Halo 3, and UT3 the online is a little weak. There is the lack of voice chat. You can still type in short messages to your team, but typing on the Wii is pretty slow. Another thing is that there could have been more maps, through the six maps that are in this game are quite nice actually.

    Even if some flaws held the game back a little, it still really fun thanks to the fun online and great control scheme. In the end Heroes 2 is the best MoH game since Frontline.

      It may have some problems, but this a decent shooter 0

      First person shooters on the Wii haven't made much of an impact (bar Metroid Prime 3) so far and Medal of Honor Heroes 2 tries to stop that and puts up a good effort at that. A major pro for the game is the online multiplayer. You play across 6 maps in 6 different modes. You use EA Nation to use the online which is a relief that you don't have to use those damn friend codes. The controls in Heroes 2 work well, very well for that matter. Where most Wii ports fall is in the controls department bu...

      Great Controls Can't Make Up For Bland 0

      In two or three  years, we'll probably look back and cite this game as the grandfather of a whole slew of FPS for the Wii.  This was the one that proved to the masses that the Wii's controls were perfect for an FPS.  The game controls are absolutely amazing.  They let you have an astounding degree of control and really make you feel much more involved in the game.That said, this game couldn't be more uninspired.  The story comes off-half hearted at best and everything about the game just screams...
