Medal of Honor Heroes 2 is a first-person shooter game for the Wii and the PlayStation Portable. It is the 12th installment in the long-running Medal of Honor series of World War II games. Each version was built from the ground up for its respective system. The Wii version was announced at Nintendo’s E3 2007 Press Conference on July 11, 2007. Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 is set in World War II, starting on the Normandy beaches trying to control German bunkers and then move on to secure a village in France.



This is the second Medal of Honor game to be released for the Wii. The first was Medal of Honor: Vanguard.



The Wii version of the game features up to 32 players in one server, with six maps and six uniforms, three for Axis and three for Allies. The uniforms for the Allies are “Ranger’s 2nd”, “Ranger’s 4th”, and “Ranger’s 5th”, whereas the Axis uniforms are simply “Axis Rookie”, “Axis Regular”, and “Axis Elite”. There are three different online multiplayer modes available.[2] The PSP version is virtually identical in terms of multiplayer functions. The Australian version of the game has no multiplayer mode at all, which has been the subject of much criticism.[3] EA Australia & EB Games Australia also removed all references to the multiplayer aspect from their websites.


EA’s official response to the lack of multiplayer for Australia was: “Medal of Honor Heroes 2 for Wii does not support online functionality in Australia. We made an error in the documentation and marketing materials. We are very sorry to have caused confusion for our customers. We will provide a refund to anyone in Australia who wishes to return the game to EA because of the lack of online functionality.”[4]


EA Australia has declined to comment on why the online element of the game was omitted from the game, which has led games websites to speculate that the company did not deem it profitable to host the local servers necessary for low-latency game play.There are changes made to weapons in multiplayer mode, such as the STG44 having a much slower firing rate and the Bazooka not requiring to be stationary to fire.


All online servers for Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 for the PlayStation Portable and Nintendo Wii consoles were shut down on August 11, 2011.
