When I first heard the announcement that a sequel to MoH was to be released I was very excited. I eagerly anticipated what it would be like ,with "baited breath" !! I prayed it would have a much longer campaign, better graphics and a much neater multi-player layout.
Well obviously no one was listening to me that day !!. Ill start with the campaign. It's fairly ok - bigger than its predecessor but that's not saying much at all. It could have been a third larger, that I feel would be suitable in size.
The storyline doesn't in my opinion feel like a continuation, which is a little disappointing. It doesn't fully explain what the characters are now doing, and as for the interlude regarding one of the Tier 1 teams marital problems I don't care!! The cut scenes between levels seem to tell a different story to the levels you play half the time. When you start a level it says things like "1 day ago or 2 weeks ago" Just act out the story in real time chronologically. Its much easier.
As for the graphics they're fairly good but there is room for improvement. I had noticed quite a few glitches in both campaign and mutli-player platforms. These are just "school boy errors" and should not be occurring.
The game play is good but at times does become a little monotonous and repetitive. A classic example of this would be the "door breach options" shotgun, semtex or your foot etc. We get the point and after you have busted your third door, usually its like "bla bla whatever".
Finally the multi-player game play is ok but the whole layout of the multi-player lobby / interface is so overly complicated it almost puts you off before you've even started.
In conclusion this game is quite simply average. Its a shame to say that for a big name in the gaming industry its not quite as big on popularity or quality, as I would expect from accomplished and well established developers. Hopefully if there is a 3rd game in the series then, Three times the charm I'm sure.
