I haven't played COD3, so take this with a grain of salt. It's almost doubtless that the COD3 campaign is better and more fleshed out than the MOHH2 campaign, which comes in even shorter than Vanguard's. On the other hand, the Wii version of COD3 came without even having offline multiplayer.Originally Posted by Juche
Of the MOHH2 reviews on Amazon, only one is actually bad at one star. That reviewer got very few actual facts correct in his review. The next 2 worst review were at 3 stars, and one of them (JJen) also got some important facts wrong. It's not the end of the world, nor does it completely discredit their dislike of the game, but it does call into question whether they really played it well enough to form an opinion before trying it.
Before buying I recommend you read all of IGN's previews and their review carefully. Know what you're getting. If you'd like a pretty fair list of complaints about the game's features (mostly details), see my post in this thread (I'm fortunzfavor there). For less fair lists, there are several complaint threads here on WiiChat, but they could enlighten you as to some details.
MOHH2 is a high quality title, but the team the dev'd it didn't have the sort of resources that COD3's multiplatform team did. What they did accomplish is pretty incredible, but it's far from perfect. If after reading those things and the IGN work, you still like it, then I recommend it over any Wii FPS.
COD3's controls are actually quite tight, but they don't have nearly the level of customizability as MOHH2, which caused some people to dislike them quite a bit. With a little work, you're sure to find a comfortable control scheme on MOHH2.
MOHH2 is the only online FPS currently on Wii. It's the most comprehensive online experience of any genre on Wii, and it comes without friend codes. Sadly, it also comes with extremely limited communication options.however for me the big selling point is that you can play medal of honor 2 heroes online. So I can hook up my laptop on my wireless router onto the wii and play. So I am thinking moh:h2 is the better deal.
Are there other great 1st person shooters that let you play online with 32 players other than MOH:H2?
RS2 is expected to be online, but it hasn't been confirmed, it has no release date, and details about the experience haven't come out. If Wii makes it as a platform for Timesplitters 4, that will also likely have an online feature.
