If you have ever played a Medal of Honour game before, you will know what to expect from this. If not, then it can best be described as a first person shooter set in World War Two. The title "European Assault" makes little sense - while there are some missions in Europe, I have never considered Russia or North Africa to be part of Europe! The game tries to add something new to the series by allowing you to control small numbers of soldiers, but they have such terrible programming that they are worse than useless, as whether you tell them to move somewhere or follow you, they will always slowly follow you around the level until they are inevitably killed by standing in front of an enemy whilst doing nothing. Aside from this there is little difference between this and any of the others in the series and if you have one then there is no need to buy this, and if not then you would be better off getting Medal of Honour Frontline.
In Medal of Honor European Assault gamers will play as US Army Lieutenant William Holt, hand-picked by William "Wild Bill" Donovan to be the first field agent of the newly formed Office of Strategic Services¨the OSS. As Lieutenant Holt, your classified missions take place in WWII Europe and are of critical importance to the Allies. You will be tasked with gathering intelligence regarding the development and deployment of the deadly Nazi Tiger Tank and more significantly, stopping the Nazi plan to develop and harness atomic energy. In the pursuit of this goal you are thrust into action in all the pivotal battles of WWII Europe, including St. Nazaire, North Africa, Stalingrad, and the Battle of the Bulge.
