One for Prince Phillip [Spiny]

I don't usually big-up corporates, especially ones like 'GAME' store who are usually in the region of a tenner more expensive than on line retailers. However, today I'll make an exception.

A few in the clan have taken the treehuggery route while waiting for Battlefield 2 to turn up. Me, I've been playing from the endless stock of stuff I never got round to before & a couple of xmas pressies. One of them is MOH Pacific Assault. It recieved slightly luke warm reviews on release of around 80% and after playing my xmas pressie through I reckon that's about right. It does everything in the WWII shooter department with capability & polish but dosen't advance the genre in the way Allied Assault or Call Of Duty did. It's pretty too, and at times has heaps of enemies on the screen which helps. Now, the real reason for this blog is that GAME have it on sale for only a tenner. That's a lot less than some expansion packs! I guess they wildly overstocked or something.

So, if you were toying with the idea of picking it up I can recommend it. The multi player isn't bad. Basically, it's a jungle themed version of UT's assault mode.

I've just started Men Of Valor too, but I'm having a hard time with that, it's just not engaging & the multi is awful. One to avoid, 50%.


  1. Forgive me Spiny m'ole mucker, but what does any of that have to do with Prince Philip? :)

  2. Erm, shooting foreigners, probably :)

  3. I think we are really due a big World of Warcraft blog given how many of us have played it and are really enthusiastic about it. Battlefield 2 also. I like it, though, when someone points out something they're playing that they're enjoying - like this blog. I may or may not get around to playing it but unless someone calls something out as being teh win, you never know. Enthusiasm never hurts.
