Excerpt: I simply cannot understand why people like Medal of Honor: Allied Assault. After hearing how great and exciting it is, I finally bought it and realized how great and exciting is isn't. And let me get this out of the way quickly: this game has, hands-down, the weakest grenades I've ever seen. Firecrackers make more of an explosion than the grenades in this game.
Excerpt: Graphics & Sound: Medal of Honor: Allied Assault is set in a realistic-boasting World War II setting. I've only played their superb sports games, so I was excited to see how they would handle such an intense theater like World War II. I really wish English were a more descriptive language so I could express my pleasure, but may I simply put that the graphics on this game are top-notch industry leading. The environments are absolutely perfect!
Conclusion: War Chest is a great introduction to the Medal of Honor series on PC and only looses marks because it's not completely deaf gamer friendly.

Excerpt: Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, the first PC installment of Electronic Arts' WWII-themed shooter series, is superb. However, if the realistic setting has led you to expect a serious combat simulation along the lines of Ghost Recon or Operation Flashpoint, you're going to be surprised and perhaps disappointed. Medal of Honor is first and foremost a run-and-gun shooter--a really, really excellent run-and-gun shooter.
Excerpt: EA's new Medal of Honor game for the PC has taken computer war gamers to an entirely new level. The newest addition to the franchise, started on the Playstation, has all the fun and ingenuity of the original, only this time, with a lot more punch. EA has used the Quake 3 engine to create a gaming experience no one was expecting.
