Beta Feedback Lets EA Upgrade Medal Of Honor...Big Time
You know beta tests are more for the developers than for you, right? It ain't just a demo; they really want to know how the game goes over with gamers before releasing the final product.
And if you want proof of how important that feedback can be, just see how EA has utilized tester info for the multiplayer aspect of Medal of Honor. Thanks to the beta (exclusive to the PlayStation 3 at first), EA has received tons of great feedback and they have made the following adjustments: improved hit detection (one of the primary issues testers complained about), weapon pickups (forget the damn ammo crates; find the nearest dead ally/enemy and pick up their weapon), better balancing of support actions, an expansion of the unlock tree, various crash fixes, a major graphic overhaul, and finally, some important weapon modifications. In short, the multiplayer will look and play better than ever before, and it's all due to that beta where gamers participated and anted up with their complaints and suggestions. Demos are just for you but when it comes to beta tests, you play an important role; it's up to you to speak out and help change the game.
Medal of Honor is one of the "Big FPS Three" this holiday season (along with Halo: Reach and Call of Duty: Black Ops), despite receiving a ton of flak for allowing people to play as the Taliban. ...we're not gonna get into that again.
