Medal of Honor Guide and Walkthrough
Unofficial Medal of Honor Guide and Walkthrough by Chris Boots-Faubert for SuperCheats.com
This is the walkthrough and guide for the video game Medal of Honor -- the newest game in the series that according to the PR material is intended to serve as a reboot that will re-establish the series as a competitive presence in the war-based FPS genre.
The game is based upon the Tier-1 Branch of the United States Special Operations Command (aka SOCOM), and largely deals with assignment to duties that largely fall outside -- way outside -- the normal missions that the military handles. To put a fine point upon it, Tier-1 is sort of a combination of the US Army Rangers, Green Berets, and Seals, with a little bit of SAS, the Para Commandos, and the SRR -- but rather than following the morality of the military, it closer resembles that of the CIA. In short these blokes do the jobs that are so far past what is colloquially called "Black Ops" that it would not surprise me to learn that each of their mission reports includes a permanent exemption from the FOIA.
This game was created in part under the consultation of the very men who it portrays, so it appears that we can accept that it accurately depicts the reality of ultra-secret black-missions that are executed under the command of SOCOM. I will say this -- of all of the military FPS games that have come out in the past ten years, this one feels the most realistic to me.
The game includes a challenging set of Achievements / Trophies, and I have taken special care to detail how you unlock them -- both in the lists contained in the Appendixes as well as in the appropriate areas of each section of the walkthrough. There is certainly a level of satisfaction to be obtained in completing these, though a significant number are based upon online play...
After spending two weeks with this game, playing it, and writing the walkthrough, I am confident in giving this title a solid score of 9 out of 10 with a buy rating. I deducted a point for what I consider a somewhat abbreviated story-mode, but that was the only part of the game that I could find fault with!
I hope that you all find this walkthrough helpful, and enjoy your time playing as a member of Tier-1!
Note: The game is broken up into logical sections based upon who you are playing -- Rabbit, Deuce, or Dante, thus 1-X is Rabbit's missions, 2-X Deuce's, 3-X are Dante's, and 4-X are Brad "Hawk" Hawkins. That should make the progression a little more easy to follow and will indicate for you who you are playing for a given mission.
