Medal of Honor details spill out, going to be real real

Recommended Videos

This week’s GameTrailers TV has a whopping amount of news for those looking forward to the single-player campaign of Medal of Honor. Plenty of never before seen gameplay is above and it looks very solid. Executive producer Greg Goodrich also lets tons of juicy plot details drop, including the fact that the story will be divided up into three parts and will focus on multiple parts of the U.S. military.

If I was going for some sensationalism I might note, like some other gaming sites have, that Goodrich mentions that the game will be told “from two different sides” and then claim that this means that we may be playing as Al-Qaeda in the single-player as well as the multiplayer. However, I think it’s blatantly obvious to anyone that has actually watched the episode or heard them talk about the plot before that he is referring to different sides of the U.S. military — specifically Tier 1 and Army Rangers. And we go and complain about the mainstream media stirring up trouble where there is none.

I personally think that Goodrich’s discussion on the difference between realism and authenticity is far more interesting, and speaks loads more to how the game will play and what it will be like. I’m wondering how far away they’re moving from a more arcade shooter and if that’s going to fly with gamers used to Call of Duty‘s gameplay style.
