If you want some gritty modern day FPS action, this deal from HMV will set you right. Their price for Danger Close’s reboot is now at a fiver for the PC version, providing a surprising saving of £15 over the next best price over on Steam.
Is it worth a fiver though? The game was slightly underwhelming in the face of the hype it rode in on, but the single player is decent enough, it just wasn’t the spectacle we were hoping for. The multiplayer improves matters, and the Limited Edition comes with a few extras to help you out, but whether anyone is still playing it is a different matter. Still, for a fiver you could make up your own mind on it all. Thanks to andywedge @ HUKD!
Direct2Drive’s summer sale is still in full flow (you can catch today’s quartet of offers here) but today’s highlighted deal from proceedings is for the Medal of Honor reboot. The next best offer for this title over at CoolShop is £3.50 more expensive, and they don’t have many copies left, making this a more attractive deal. Is it worth it for £6 though? The game was slightly underwhelming in the face of the hype it rode in on, but the single player is decent enough, it just wasn’t the spectacle we were hoping for. The multiplayer improves matters, but you’d be forgiven for sticking with other franchises. Check out Dave’s review for the full scoop. Please note: this deal expires at 6pm today.
The cover of Medal Of Honor makes it look like a hybrid between Call Of Duty and Sons Of Anarchy, but sadly it's no where near as cool as that, in fact it's really just an inferior clone of any other modern warfare game that's out on the market at the moment. To be fair to it though the multiplayer's not bad and the shooting's fairly satisfying. ShopTo are parting with PS3 copies of the game for £11.86, which'll make you a saving of just over £2 on the next best offer coming in from My Memory.
Here comes the Steam Summer Sale deluge! We'll be rounding these up from tomorrow.
Whilst our review indicates that Medal of Honor is absolutely nowhere near as good as Black Ops, it's worth noting that it isn't actually bad. Rather, it's a servicable shooter with decent graphics, a solid campaign and multiplayer that works perfectly well. Our eagerness to pan it demonstrates that it simply isn't okay to be just 'reasonable' or 'good' any more... and that we, as gamers, are willing to punish anyone who overhypes their products. Despite all that, Medal of Honor is still a reasonable FPS that might be worth a second look at this price. Remember that the deal only lasts for one day!
