    I just received this months Gamepro in the mail and it had a review of Medal of Honor for PS2 in it. It had all perfect scores!!! I can't wait for this game!!! It also said this is one of those game like Halo that raises the bar for other games.

    Gamepro obviously have different opinions to Edge then. They gave it 5/10, and complained that it was boringly linear, lacked the sense of immersion that Allied Assault had, and certainly wasn't even close to the wonder that is Halo (which they did give 10/10 to). Generally, they thought it was just like more MoH:Underground levels, but with slightly better graphics (though still not good enough to stand up to comparison with what PC and X-Box are doing with FPSs.

    I have never heard of "edge" but that odd that the scores are so far off......

    Edge is probably Britain's most respected games magazine, and certainly the only one aimed squarely at adults. They are renowned for being hard to please (giving MoH:Allied Assault 6/10 didn't exactly endear them to the PC gaming people, for instance), but are usually fair.

    Part of it is Edge's opinion that dedicated gamers usually have several systems, and they are a multi-format mag, so while Frontline may be one of the best PS2 FPS games, to score highly in Edge it still has to compete with the likes of Halo and Half-Life.

    I checked a few other magazine sites and EGM had it ranked a 9.4/10 they also had a section that readers reviewed the demo to the game and almost everybody had it ranked a 10/10. Do you mind posting a link to that review, so I can see why they didn't like it? Thanks [​IMG]

    Sorry Jason, they don't have their reviews online. Its a print mag only. Its worth remembering that their harsh policy means that 5/10 does really mean 'average', unlike other magazines. So if you already like your shooters, you'll probably find things to like, but you shouldn't make this your first FPS, as plenty of better ones exist.

    Sounds pretty good. I'll be waiting for the Cube incarnation later this year. It's not too far off on GC, is it?

    I didn't see a Cube version on the horizon but I do know that an Xbox version and GBA version is due out later this year. And Iain, no it wouldn't be my first fps. I have had many, the are my favorite type of games. [​IMG]

    Historically, it seems that Europeans and Americans have different opinions on what makes a good game. I can't really quantify it, but it doesn't surprise me that a UK mag had a different opinion than a US reviewer.

    Jason, X-Box is getting Allied Assault. Cube IS meant to be getting Frontline, this was announced recently, I just forget when it can be expected.

    The current issue of the Official Playstation Magazine has a playable demo of Medal of Honor: Frontline if you don't mind shelling out $8.99 for it. I was very impressed with the demo, but unfortunately it times out after fifteen minutes of play...

    Rich I almost picked it up with my ten dollar gift card at Best Buy. But I decided to use that towards the purchase of the game.

    This game just may revitalize my interest in FPS games for consoles.

    Well I for one was disappointed with the DEMO. I love the MOH series but the demo was graphically sub-par to other FPS games.
    Of course it looks better than PS1 MOH games but I was hoping for a better graphical overhaul. Maybe the finished game will look better than the choppy, slow pixelated demo.
    I will buy the game regardless.[​IMG]
