Medal of Honor: Frontline (GC)
1 June 2005
Excerpt: EA Games has a reputation for the quality of it\'s games. From the excellent sound quality, to the well-cared for graphics, most EA titles bristle with authenticity. Medal of Honor was first developed for the original Playstation just after the release of Saving Private Ryan, and was developed in collaboration with the team that made the movie. In it you played Lieutenant Jimmy Patterson, an ace fighter along the lines of Castle Wolfenstein\'s B.J. Blascowicz.
Excerpt: Medal of Honor was one of the best first person shooters to ever grace the original PlayStation. It provided great audio with realistic (for the time) visuals that was the recipe for instant success. Now GameCube gamers are treated to the third installment in the much-heralded series in the form of a PS2 port.
Excerpt: After the highly successful Medal of Honor series made its way through all the other platforms, Frontline is brought to the GameCube. Does this new port offer anything new for GameCube owners?
Conclusion: All in all, a competent (if slightly disappointing) conversion of a classic PS2 game. We'd have liked a more Xboxcentric version, but MOHF still provides some seriously atmospheric and exciting gaming, and is simply unmissable if you've never played the other versions.
Pros: Superb sound and atmosphere, It's the closest thing on Xbox to a playable Saving Private Ryan or Band Of Brothers., Some neat multiplayer levels.
Cons: It looks like a really good PS2 game., WWII weapons were a bit crap., No co-op mode, system link or bots in the multiplayer.
Conclusion: All in all, a competent (if slightly disappointing) conversion of a classic PS2 game. MOHF still provides some seriously atmospheric and exciting gaming, and is simply unmissable if you've never played the earlier versions.
Pros: Amazingly atmospheric sound., New multiplayer mode., It's WWIItastic!!
Cons: Unsubtle aiming and occasional frame rate problems., Too linear for its own good.
