In a little over two weeks, gamers around the world will go crazy for Black Ops II. In the mean time, Medal of Honor has taken over the number one spot in Europe for sales. Should you go buy Medal of Honor today (if you haven’t already) or wait for Black Ops 2? Which is going to be the better of the two you may ask yourself, well take a look at the review scores and see for yourself. According to Metacritic the scores for previous games are listed.
Call of Duty
- Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare – 94
- Call of Duty: World at War – 85
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – 94
- Call of Duty: Black Ops – 88
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – 88
Medal of Honor
- Medal of Honor – 75
- Medal of Honor: Warfighter – 55
Reviews are sometimes biased because its only what that one person gives the game, so that’s my warning. However, clearly the Call of Duty series has been more successful with reviews and they have figured out a formula that sells. It seems to me the Medal of Honor series tried to duplicate the exact same formula and gameplay as the Call of Duty series with their recent release of Warfighter. This attempt is seen as a failure to me and many critics have ripped this game apart earning the game an embarrassing low score of 55 of Metacritic. I know Call of Duty has remained what people would call “the same” over the past few years, and they complain about this, however they continue to buy the new game every year. The new Black Ops looks to have changed a little, which I believe is good for the series and will get people excited. Save your money for the sure thing and wait two weeks for Black Ops II and stay tuned for a special ‘Everything You Need to Know’ on Black Ops II coming next week.
