Rising Yawn
17 January 2004 | by TrashbagSee all my reviews

First thing you see in Rising Sun is a really nice logo. Then a cutscene. Then...wait, I'm playing already?! Where's the menu?! That's right. No menu, no fiddling with the controls. You just start playing. The first mission is really good, where you have to fight off oncoming planes, which is good enough for replay value. Unfortunety, none of the other missions aren't as good as the beginning. Actually, most of them are a real drag. There's probably only one good moment, and that's when you're riding on an elephant with a machine gun turret, which is fun. Silly, but fun. And the music is good. MOH games have great music, and this one is no different. If only the gameplay was as good. Rising Sun isn't a total disaster. It's kind of average, partly because most of the things here have been done before. Also the graphics are starting to get old. But mostly, it's because of the enemy AI. They're just plain stupid. There was one moment where an enemy was laying face down on the floor, but was still walking. It was like he just spotted an enemy in the floor below him, and was trying to walk through the floor to get him. So this just another average first-person-shooter. This gets a ***out of*****
