Medal Of Honor Isn't Just A Clone Of Bad Company 2
Granted, there are a lot of similarities between first-person shooters. But despite comparisons between games like Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and the upcoming Medal of Honor, you shouldn't be thinking about the word "clone."
See, DICE developed Bad Company 2 and they're also working on the multiplayer component of Medal of Honor - part of EA's approach to dedicate one entire team to the single-player and multiplayer respectively - so some think it'll play just like BC2 online. But according to what Medal of Honor producer Gordon Van Dyke told That VideoGame Blog, this really won't be the case.
"No. Absolutely not...people shouldn’t expect a clone of Bad Company 2 for Medal of Honor’s multiplayer."
Technically developed by EALA, DICE has a major part in creating the game so some FPS fans are a little leery about picking up two DICE FPSs within a 6-month span. But Van Dyke says this doesn't make any sense.
"It’s just like if you went and saw one action movie and then another one came out that year, you’re not gonna say, ‘Oh, I’m not going to go see that one.’ If it was the same director, maybe you’d want to go see that other one even more."
To emphasize this point, EALA boss Sean Decker has already said there's "enough separation" between the single-player campaigns in MoH and BC2; "both in time and in tone," so when MoH arrives, you shouldn't be saying to yourself, "eh, I already played Bad Company 2." Really, you'd likely be missing out...
