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: Finally I have found a PlayStation 2 shooter that dethrones the mighty Red Faction (at least until Red Faction 2 comes out). In fact, I have had interest in playing Frontline ever since I found out that the D-Day invasion made prevalent in Saving Private Ryan and in the previous MOH title Allied Assault for the PC, would be included. Otherwise I thought it would be another title similar to the PS1 MOH games which I admittedly was not impressed with. This time I am.
Excerpt: Being announced all the way back in March of 2001, I thought the arrival of Frontline couldn't get here any slower. It was simultaneously announced with the now quietly cancelled MOH: Fighter Commander, for a 2002 release. At the time, the series was just beginning to reach its peak. The sequel, MOH: Underground, to the original title was greeted with glowing reviews and great sales as well.
Excerpt: Normandy June 6, 1944 D-Day The sounds of gunfire and bombs fill the air. You look to your left only to see a German plane sweep by your landing craft, strafing it with machine gun fire. Before you know it your craft has been overturned and as you struggle to gain your sense of direction, you notice bullets whiz by, leaving a bubble-filled trail in their wake. After you make it to shore, you notice other soldiers fighting their way to shore as well.
Summary: Frontline is a game that is better then the sum of it's parts. The atmosphere, action and addiciveness will have you back for more. If EA had included multi-player, DTS and more options this could have been a classic. Still, it's very good and FPS fans won't be disppointed.
