Thanks for the interesting report, as always, PC GH !!
I bought 2007´s Medal of Honor Airborne in its relase day. Well, my apreciations as consumer is:
1) WORST graphic options menu of all MOH. Lazyness o´mine !! (Sad but true)
2) Alpha Prime even has more options. Or Penumbra Overture -doing a favour not mentioning Crysis, neither STALKER´s graphic options menu: more serious ones- this last is an swedish indie game in case some reader may not know it, but even its graphic options menu looks:
a- Much more complete and normal to previous MoH ones -not like MoH Airborne-.
b- 3 times cheaper for not to find same quality in an EA game but this quality is there in those PC exclusive games. Sould I feel ashamed as consumer .... ? Yes.
3) I can undersand Pandemic´s Mercenaries 2 (not so much experience in PC Games). But I can not understand how EA in MoH did that creepy "way of working" for g. options menú.
4) EA Sports poor excuses for bad FIFA´s PC port MUST NOT be the real reason: don´t they feel worried that after more than 10 years working in PC Games, Criterion Studios COULD find the power to make a decent Burnout Paradise port in PC ??
So if you, PC Gamer, install MoH Airborne or Wolphe nstein and in the other hand Alpha Prime or Penumbra Overture, you will find a more profesional, serious and tradicional graphic options menu in the second last group.
And if you take a look at what this games cost .... I do not see normal at all.
P.S: About Spore editor and its oportunism for selling it (Oblivion, Fallout 3, L4D 1 or 2, COD 4, Majesty, Men of War, Torchlight, Crysis, ArmA 1 or 2, and much more a-d-u-l-t games, has a FREE editor), we will talk in another ocassion.
So Santa Claus is not happy this time with you, EA. Me, as an adult consumer, neither.
