This is the game that really ensure the success of the Medal of Honour franchise, particularly after the very impressive first level on the beaches of Normandy. Other missions include spying missions behind enemy lines and sabotaging German U Boats. This was one of the most successful first person shooters for the Gamecube, and is still a lot of fun.
The game also looks impressive and it has not dated particularly badly in terms of graphics, which is particularly important for a first person shooter. There is a real cinematic feel because of the excellent sound, for example when a gun is fired, however voice acting is particularly bad, not that that is a real issue.
The game is pretty easy to complete, and there is no incentive to play through again. That would not be such an issue if it wasn't for the terrible multiplayer. There are only 8 maps available and no interesting game modes or settings which means that it feels like a token inclusion.
Electronic Arts is bringing Medal of Honor: Frontline to the Nintendo GameCube, so history buffs will have a chance to soak in the sights and sounds of WWII with 19 levels that are based on real events. As Lt. Jimmy Paterson, you will participate in crucial assignments, including the D-Day assault on Omaha Beach and the battle for control of the Nijmegen Bridge. Your chief objective, though, is to drop behind enemy lines during the confusion of Operation Market Garden and steal the experimental Nazi aircraft HO-IX. The 20-plus authentic weapons include the Springfield sniper rifle, Panzershrek rocket launcher, MG42 mounted machine gun and Browning automatic rifle.
