Summary: EA's Medal of Honor: European Assault for
the Xbox is a solid World War II FPS title that brings players to the frontlines
of the epic conflict. European Assault takes players through the war-torn
continent as they battle the Nazis in four separate campaigns. It's more
open-ended than previous MOH titles, though the gameplay is still linear. The
simple controls and structure make for an accessible game that allows players to
concentrate on the action.
Excerpt: Medal of Honor: European Assault is the latest incarnation of EA’s long-running World War II series; a series that at this point has had a longer run than WWII itself. European Assault brings the series back to, you guessed it, Europe and puts you in the boots of William Holt. Holt is an OSS officer (Office of Strategic Services, the precursor to the CIA) who works with Allied forces on a variety of dangerous covert operations.
Conclusion: Medal of Honor: European Assault is a victim of the excellence of past MOH games. If you are willing to excuse Rising Sun as a hiccup, this game holds up quite well with its forerunners. The trouble is that the games industry has moved on apace, and the lack of multiplayer and curiously underwhelming player models do little to inspire players.
Pros: A stab has been made at making the game more freeform – it works well, and the multiple secondary objectives are a hot ticket., You get to cover major WW2 theatres, so geographical variety isn’t an issue., You have squaddies. Can’t hurt.
Cons: Player models need to have their rez and detail upped., No online multiplayer., This is one short game. It won’t take more than 10 hours to wrap it up, maximum.
Excerpt: EA er kendt for deres mange populære serier og Medal of Honor er en af dem. Til konsollerne leverede gigant-firmaet sidste gang en lidt skuffende oplevelse sammenlignet med resten af serien, nemlig Rising Sun.
