Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond is the first video shooting game produced by Respawn Entertainment, released on December 10. It is the first release of the Medal of Honor series since the 2012 Medal Of Honor Warfighter. It takes us through the WWII years with new technologies developed.

Medal of Honor: The Beyond campaign is made up of six large machines, each divided into smaller sections, moving from place to place as you go through the story. Each episode of the game moves to a smaller area and uses various WWII weapons to oust the Nazis.

If you like using old weapons, you’re in luck. Using a single shotgun like the M1 Garand, we created some of the most fun shooting shows among the cutscenes. Guns or long-range rifles feel lethal, capable of knocking out an enemy with a single shot and sending their lifeless body to the ground. There may be a problem with accuracy, but the whole experience is enjoyable.

As you play more and more, you open up new documentaries featuring World War II vets telling their stories. Available in the gallery section of the main menu, these videos are truly great, giving the stage an important generation. But if you don’t like watching videos in the middle of the game, it becomes difficult for you. Sometimes the campaign usually forces you to stop or sit down, watching stylish characters and unflattering stories being played around you.

In some of the issues you have asked to make decisions again. But the choices you make have no effect on the storyline. If your choices and actions are more weighty, the content of the pieces set above and beyond Beyond remains irrational and uninspired.

On the other hand, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond is the whole action. Walking around the map, finding other players, and shooting them is satisfying, especially when you work well. It’s fun to shoot players in a non-VR game, there’s a sense of shocking speed when you see a real person running at you and a great sense of accomplishment when you dominate another team. Your movement, accuracy, and behaviour will bring you that victory.

Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond Campaign Review

On top of that it packs a 10+ hour campaign full of fun set pieces, iconic locations, and good attention to detail. It takes about 200GB of memory for your PC. On the other hand, it is clear that this is Respawn’s first VR game. From the ugly floating rectangular menus, the ever-loading loading screens, and the complete lack of cohesion between the 54 game scenes emerge as one of the times rather than the real story.

The whole game is made up of freely connected scenes that are stored individually on the loading screens that are usually longer. You are simulating a short explosion of content, waiting for it to be uploaded, and then relocated. It’s like taking a typical machine from a game like Call of Duty, splitting it into pieces, splitting it with loading screens.

Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond Multiplayer Review

Too many players are extremely fun. It has all the same excellent shooting equipment from the campaign mode, which sounds like an extremely balanced balance between accessibility and authenticity, but as you play online it completely removes all your worries regarding travel, tone, and loading times. When the game starts you may need to wait to refresh for a few seconds, but you can still look around and change your load in the middle of life.

There are no progressive machines available and apart from unlocking the skins of bullets in a single player campaign you get nothing when you spend playing. While it’s refreshing to have a shooter who really sticks to that old school building philosophy of putting the fun and challenging game forward, I think you can do that while giving some kind of progression or reward structure in the time wasted.

Maps on the other hand are very good. All 10 feel different and different with some very surprising environmental effects, such as a small fog at the level of a snowmobile or all the detailed debris around a plane that crashed at Church level.

Medal Of Honor: Above and Beyond Gallery and Survival Mode Review

A gallery, or real-life archive full of detailed chats, available recordings, and more narrative stories and locations from WWII. It is one of the most advanced and authentic digital devices related to WWII.

Then there is the survival mode. Exactly how it sounds. You will fight the waves of the Nazis as they pour on the maps and force you to defend yourself. It is very basic, but at least it gives you a quick and easy way to dive straight into battle without breaking the story line first. Co-op support could really help raise it, however.

Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond Review
Medal of Honor: Above and beyond of it is exciting and tiring at the same time. While its gameplay is satisfying, the moments of light are very short, interrupted by cuts that force you to stand still and watch a story that doesn’t involve you or your character. On the other hand, multiplayer it's powerful but it needs a lot of players and some limited balance. If you are looking forward to getting into WWII's VR version with exciting setup times, authentic history documents, and a fun multiplayer online mode, then you should go for satisfaction. But if you were looking for an immersive story wrapped in the evolution of VR game design by a leading expert - don’t hold your breath.
An exciting 10+ hour campaign
Amazing multiplayer mode with 10 maps
Beautiful graphics with realistic nature
The best mini-documentaries tell the fascinating stories of real WWII veterans
Regular loading of the screen breaks playback
The need for funny hardware
Cutscenes are unpleasant and interfere with movement,
The story has no meaning and meaning in its WWII context
