    Posted by someone who played the demo:

    “Interesting part of the game that I had no idea even existed. If you accomplish small tasks in the game, you are awarded with bonus tokens. These tokens come in four colors: Red, Blue, Green, and Gold. Red tokens are given as you scan a certain number of enemies/items. Blue tokens are given for scanning lore and accomplishing side tasks. Green I believe are when friends give you vouchers, more on that later. Gold tokens are given for beating bosses on various difficulties. You use the tokens to unlock hidden content in the extras menu. The final type of token is the “friend voucher”. Basically these are given for accomplishing some type of cool accomplishment in the game.

    For example, when I beat the boss, a gold token flashed at the top of my screen saying it was for killing Lord Beserker. At an earlier point, I saved a GF trooper from being killed by two enemies. I was given a blue token for that one.

    I also obtained two friend vouchers. In one case, I saved a GF trooper from being sucked into space. In another case, I killed 100 small bugs in a room before leaving. According to the game, you apparently send these “achievements” to your friends, and they give them green tokens. I think it’s a level of competition between friends to see who’s unlocked the most “achievements”. I was interested in this since there was a “Friend Roster” option and a “Configure Wii Connect 24″ option on the menu. I didn’t hear about this before, and I think

    How about you try reading the post before commenting? It doesn't have online MULTIPLAYER, it has online. You connect with friends to see who's gained the most accomplishments, pretty useless imo.

    He says: There is online but no online multi-player. So you cant play with youre friends, but you can send youre friends tokens/achievements to show off.

    Sounds a bit like the Eledees/Elebits WiiConnect24 support

    Ya I agree it's pointless, if they put in SOME online capabilities into the game why not go the whole ten yards and add the rest of the online abilities too. like multiplayer for instance...hate this game...

    I think there is more to this and Nintendo actually hasn't said anything about it. It seems pointless to use Wiiconnect24 to see each other's accomplishments...

    Yeah I just read that on Go Nintendo about 15 minutes ago. Thats a pretty good idea. I wish Wii had some sort of accomplishment feature with all the games like the 360. That would definantly make me play games through and through.

    I understand how everyone says Metroid's a single player game and all, but if it's actually as good as the reviewers say regarding the controls and not to mention graphics. I can't believe they're not putting in an online multiplayer. I'm not expecting much at all from MoH, not just because I don't think they've got the controls down, but because they're using that pos for an accessory, the zapper. I want a god damn FPS for my Wii and an online one with respectable controls!!! Oh, and I want a stand-alone tennis game. >.> Useless game designers milking party games instead of making something good.

    This may be the wrong thread but w/e.

    Then don't use the zapper, it's not required.

    Oh, I didn't know that, thank god. Still though, I'd like a ...space fps? (I don't know what to call it) I'm tired of army FPSs, I want one with lasers and canons!! But meh, MoH should be good without zapper. I hope that if you use it without the zapper you can still play it without the A and D-pad buttons so I could use a pistol light gun attachment.

    lol thatsit !! You are just one of the people on these forums that reads a single line in a post that containts 5 and starts "yelling" OMG WTF BBQ IT SUPPORTS THE ZAPPER !

    When you want to use the zapper you will have to play a SEPERATE game mode. Thats like the classic arcade hall shooters. You dont have to. Im looking forward to medal of honor a lot !

    Ontopic: I think its a pointles add-on but its nice that they try these new things
