The most overlooked, underrated Medal of Honor

Summary: I didn't have huge expectations for Medal of Honor: European Assault. Based on the flawed Pacific Assault gameplay, which was itself a variation of the Rising Sun formula, European Assault seemed at first like too bland too late. But after completion, I realize what a gem this one is. European Assault puts the player in command of a four-man squad, able to issue very basic move and attack commands.
Summary: I've read a previous review that this game is too hard on the normal level setting. That is simply not the case at all. This game was made to be realistic in many aspects and I believe that it is VERY accurate on gameplay and the amount of shots a player can take before being killed. This game is no stand-up-run-around-directly-up-to-the-krauts-and-shoot-them-dead-all-the-while-taking-rounds-and-living type game at all.
Summary: Graphics/sound: a slight improvement over Frontline (don't know about Rising Sun; haven't played it). Multiplayer: yawn. Playability: okay, whatever. Playing this game, you get the feeling the designers are Nazi sympathizers who're annoyed Germany lost WWII, 'cause all the German soldiers in this game are only a sprocket away from full-on cyborg invincibility (this on the "Normal" difficulty level).
Summary: I rented this game after getting Call of Duty 2: Big Red One as a gift and subsequently loving it. I was expecting that a game like MOH:EA that was so hyped back in the summer when it came out would also be a great game. However, while it's a good game, it's not worth owning and in the end is more frustrating than entertaining.
better than MOH: Rising Sun, but worse than just about anything else...

Summary: It is often the case that reviews criticize games for not being what the reviewer really wanted ("Why couldn't there be more of this or less of that?" type of reviews) That is unfair. However, this game is severely flawed, mostly because of issues with the set-up and execution of the game. The missions, in and of themselves, are interesting enough to make for good game play.
Summary: i knew right from the beginning that playing MOH: European Assault wasnt going to be any groundbreaking experience. Even hardcore fans of the series have to admit that Medal of Honor has been on a downward slope. Frontline in 2002 was a awesome game but 2003's Rising Sun was less than adequete. European Assault rests happily between the two titles....it is a good game. I give it 5 stars because it's clearly taking the series in a positive direction.
