Summary: Bought it used and after about 3 hours was too bored to play anymore. The only way this game would be any more linear was if they made it a 2D side-scroller. There is very little decision making or strategy involved compared to today's games. It is essentially a walk down on an obvious path that leads to different shooting galleries. Might have been something back in its day, but no longer.
Suffers from the same troubles as many X-Box Titles

Summary: Here are the pros and cons of the game; I'll discuss each after the list Pros Above Average Graphics Many different Weapons Large Game play Cons Linear game play Save feature is also BS Unrealistic game play at times Difficulty settings are BS Pros From the start, this game looked good. The first mission is awesome; you hit the beach and have to fight though the chaos of the situation. The next pro is the number of weapons was great.
Summary: Graphics on this game are so-so, and though everyone talks about how great it is on the first level, shooting away on Normandy beach, you know something is rotten when you're firing away at cardboard-type cutout Nazi's in the bunkers ahead. They don't move, they don't fall when you shoot them, they're just symbolic representations that totally take you out of the experience of storming the beach. I hated it. Sounded good though. The levels get repetitive after the beach.
Summary: After reading gushing reviews and playing through some of MOH: Allied Assault on my Mac, I was really looking forward to this one. The first mission is Omaha Beach and it delivers big time. Very exciting, very chaotic. If you liked the opening sequence to Saving Private Ryan, you'll love this mission--I did. Then things took a decidedly downward spin. Basically, your character is given a mission and you go to it.
Summary: I have had this game for about 2 weeks. Compared the PC game "Medal of Honor: Allied Assualt" this game is horrible. I was looking forward to having another great XBox game to play with friends and figured that Medal of Honor would be just the ticket, but was greatly disappointed. The graphics on this game are bad, reminding me of the old shooting games from the 19th century with metal plates that moved back ond forth.
Good, could be great but misses in a few key areas

Summary: Great premise. FPS set in World War II during and right after D-day. Great weapons. Lots of variety and you can carry many different weapons at one time. (A drawback to Halo.) Some of the mission, like the house-to-house fighting are great. Really intense with a lot of action but also the need for good tactics. On the negative side: The graphics are really weak. This game fails to make the most of the Xbox's capabilities.
Summary: If you like smooth gameplay, crisp graphics, strong AI and a good story line then skip this game. First the good, the weapons are unique and seem to be authentic and are fun to use especially the Gewher sniper rifle, the intro graphics (at the start of the first mission) and all similar graphics are exceptional, and the look and feel of what you would expect a WWII game to be like are there.
Summary: I think I've been spoiled by Halo. Medal of Honor Frontline plays terribly and looks pathetic compared to the Xbox's #1 game. The graphics look like a direct conversion of a playstation 2 game (nowhere close to Halo's use of the xbox system's hardware). Play control also suffers: Ever notice how on Halo, when you want to spin around really fast, the analog stick allows you to do it by just pushing to the side as far as possible?
