Excerpt: Being a soldier isn’t that hard, you know? The only requirements you need are: the ability to chew tobacco, curse your ass off and not going insane when sleeping in a bunker with fifty other men. Still, when it comes to war the only ones who can share stories about their pasttime in the army are elderly folk and imaginative fathers.
Conclusion: This could have been a much better game had Infogrames tweaked the physics a bit more, improved the graphics, and absolutely made a better scaling difficulty level. If you want a hard driving sim that is a challenge at its toughest level, this is a good candidate for you. It is STILL a quality game.
Excerpt: As artillery falls and the landing craft of the allies are strafed by low-flying Luftwaffe, MoH: F lets you glance around at your surroundings. You see soldiers praying, the spray from the surf soaking your fellow marines, and the beachhead looming in the distance. It’s the Longest Day, Saving Private Ryan, and Band of Brothers all encased on a DVD for the Playstation 2.
Excerpt: The Medal of Honor series has quickly managed to carve itself a respectable place as a smart and accurate first person shooter series set during World War II. This time around, you play as James Patterson, a Lieutenant in the Air Transport Corps. You start the game in June 1944 as part of the invasion forces on the beaches of France. From there, you partake on a variety of missions in hopes of undermining the Nazi forces and aiding the Allies.
Pros: Great representation of W.W.II Europe, Audio portion is wonderfully done, Fun while challenging
Cons: Certain character models look blocky, Some areas are linear
Excerpt: Luckily I've never been on the battlefield. I've never really fired a gun, and I've certainly never been in the crosshairs of someone elses weapon. However, after playing my latest PS2 game Medal of Honor: Frontline (MOHF), I feel like I've been to hell and back.
Excerpt: In just the last few years, there has been an explosion of World War II-themed material to come out of both Hollywood and the world of video games. The trend really exploded with the release of Saving Private Ryan. What wasn't to be liked about that movie? It was the most grisly and realistic portrayal of warfare ever.
