    Yet to try MOH, only played COD on the Wii. Really didn't enjoy it actually. I didn't like the attempted "mouse and keyboard" style controls, didn't feel very comfortable or intuitive at all...

    I played both and can recommend MoH over CoD, I thought MoH had better controls, better graphics, and better missions. I recently picked up a PS3 and a few shooter games and I must say that I prefer MoH for Wii over any of the other console shooters for the controls alone because it's the closest to mouse precision.

    What KKajun said.. Overall MoH was much more fun experience then CoD for me.

    I gotta agree with the above posters, if i HAD to pick one, it'd be MOH Vanguard.

    COD 3 when it first came out, i found to have very fast controls, compared to far cry (horrid on wii) and red steel (slow turning arc even when turned up).

    I got used to COD3, but, i did find the controls sometimes too quick for its own good. Once MOH came out, i found the controls in that game more suited for the wiimote and it makes the game a better experience overall i think.

    Graphically, well, COD3 is better, but MOH isn't a "bad" looking game, its just not a great looking one either.


    So yeah, if you gotta buy one, get MOH, if you got a modchip, get both.

    I haven't played MOH but I thought COD3 was much more enjoyable on any other console. Which is why I would have the Xbox version. The motion controls just weren't that fun. Not to mention that I found the little motion controlled bomb planting or switch throwing segments to be down right terrible as I would have to try almost absolutely everything to finally get it to register the movement it tells me to do.

    Also, Metroid. Hell yes. This should be one of the more defining games for Single Player motion controlled gameplay. Let alone just a damn good game in general.

    Layzie, If you can wait I would say wait for Medal of Honor Heroes 2 which comes out for Wii this winter US. It will support the Wii Zapper for Single Player, A special exclusive Arcade shooting mode and Online play. Online play will be 32 players

    Or you can get MP3:Corruption, Both great choices.

    COD3 overall is the superior package. Yes as some said the A/V end is a lot more interesting and detailed. Controls though outside of some weird quirks using the crowbar in one piece of one stage in the game I found to be a hell of a lot nicer. You can respond quickly by turning about to fire away at stuff at angles while still being able to move in another direction independent of that (like a real soldier could do, about as close to PC mouse-look you'll get.) It also has some other fun aspects such as being used as a steering wheel, or the free aiming of a tank gun barrel independent of the tank track direction, rowing a boat in one stage, often placing the pin-twist to set-pull (then run like hell) for demolition and more.

    MOHV is drastically shorter, and while some details are more beautiful on singular things (since the worlds are much less detailed) that's mostly what it has going for it on that end. The big saving grace of MOH is the ability to heavily customize all aspects of sensitivity of the controls and also choosing on/off various things between motion or button use.

    I have both, love em both, but COD had received more replay value/time.

    Well perhaps you should gauge which to buy off of 2 things really:
    1) DO you have to save for a good while before having another title? If so, I'd get COD as it is a LOT longer.

    2) Will you often and easily find people to multiplay with? If so, MOH is the one with multi mode, COD has none.

    ohh yeah i forgot bout that multiplayer

    ok well its like this.....after i buy 2 games i will get money becuase im starting a saturday job so money isnt really a problem.

    How long would both games last if i play bout umm 3 hours a day?

    And about the multiplayer i have a brother but he wont really play much since hes starting uni..

    so i guess cod3 will suit me because id like a longer game.

    Is there anything else cod3 has besides story mode?

    Id give em both a 6.5

    COD has better controls, MOH has better graphics

    Get whichever one you want.
