Product Description

Product Description

Medal of Honor: Frontline, the franchise's PS2 debut, features 20 levels of gameplay spread across six major missions, all based on real World War II events and all adding up to one complete and uninterrupted story line. The game includes detailed German, British and American troops, as well as Dutch civilians, all with full facial expressions and lip synch. More than 20 authentic WWII weapons include the Colt.45, Springfield sniper rifle, Panzerschreck rocket launcher, MG42 mounted machine gun and the Browning automatic rifle. Enemy vehicles include panzer and tiger tanks, trucks, motorcycles with sidecars and armoured railway scout cars. There are also player-driven motorised railcars, trains and mine carts. Advanced enemy AI requires you to consistently vary your attack strategy as the situation dictates--go it alone for the utmost stealth or work as part of a highly trained military unit to wreak havoc on the enemy. The game offers intense noncombat scenarios as well, such as a disguised, weaponless infiltration of an officer's pub brimming with Gestapo to make contact with a Dutch Resistance operative. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Medal of Honor returns to its console roots with this first outing on the PS2 for Lt Jimmy Patterson. This time the setting is June 6, 1944--D-Day and beyond--and the game begins with you storming the beachhead at Normandy. Frontline definitely lives up to its name, and from the outset the action is intense. As you rush up the shingle, comrades falling beside you and artillery ringing in your ears, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were on the set of Saving Private Ryan. Players of the PC incarnation will recognise this mission from Allied Assault, but here is where the similarities end; Frontline is a new game with new objectives and levels designed perfectly for the console.

If you survive D-Day you enter the real meat of the game--Operation Market Garden (Arnhem). From scuttling a U-Boat to clearing checkpoints in the town itself, the missions are brilliantly designed. The true playability of the Medal of Honor series is how immersive it is: narrative, graphics and sound all combine to give you one of the most gripping first-person shooters on any format. Backgrounds are beautifully detailed, and the sound really sets the game apart. The control system is also intuitive, with the option to customise your controller or choose one of the two default options: MOH Sharpshooter (two analogue stick-control) or the original controls used in the PSone's Medal of Honor.

There are only two criticisms that can be levelled at the game. Firstly, the artificial intelligence errs on the stupid side, with enemies standing around watching comrades get shot, and although this changes with the difficulty level it never responds in a particularly "human" way. Secondly, you can only save at the end of a mission (always a feature of console conversions), so it's quite frustrating to be unceremoniously dumped right back at the beginning after battling your way through a level. But hey, this is war, after all, and these are small niggles about what is a genuinely phenomenal game. Sign up now: the Allies need you. --Kristen Bowditch --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I'm not really a huge fan of the FPS genre. In the last 10 years i've only played through Quake 1 and 2 on the PC and Timesplitters on the PS2. However, i'd heard great rumblings about this game, i'd heard it was an interactive take on Saving Private Ryan. I needed no more convincing...
The opening scene kicks off totally in the vein of said Speilberg epic. The sound effects are so sharp and pulsating that it was as though they were lifted straight from the film and the graphics are smooth with loving attention to detail. Real killjoys may notice genre characteristic gaps and clumsy movement when in close interaction with your surroundings but this really shouldn't put you off. The chaotic first mission is not really as intense as the film, that would be impossible, but let me tell you, it comes a close second. I guarantee you will be dodging invisible bullets and you may even shed a tear at the entrance to the German bunker complex when one of your mates is shot to pieces by a machine gun nest.
A notable reviewer mentioned that you may feel a certain degree of disspointment when you find out that this intensity isn't carried on immediately past the first level. Disregard this comment. Take a look at any great film or game, you just don't get 200% visceral fury from beginning to end and like Saving Private Ryan, MOH-F goes a little more stealthy and downbeat past the opening bloodbath. Say what you like, but I love it. The submarine infiltration and the following shipyard mission are outstanding. Brillantly paced, scripted and the soundtrack puts many Hollywood blockbusters totally to shame.
Another honourable mention goes out to MOH-F for depicting the British during WW2 in a favourable light.

I have over fifty games in my ps2 collection. Some of them are really excellent games (GTA: Vice city, Tony Hawk 4, Fifa 2003 etc...) but they don't even come close to this game.
It's not just about pointing and shooting. It takes great skill and intelligence to manouver yourself safely around the missions. The graphics and sound are first-class and truly a realistic representation of fighting in WW2.
When I completed this game I was so disapointed...I just wanted it to go on forever. Yet playing it again and again has not dampened the addictivness or excitability of this game. A true masterpeice.
In responce to the review above: They did not copy of Saving Private Ryan. The D-day landings are a documented peice of history. Everything you see in this game is factual (except for the characters and plot line of course) and not copied from Hollywood fiction.

The MOH series provided the best entertainment on the PS1, and certainly isn't a let down on the PS2.
The graphics are good, though not without fault (German soldiers getting stuck in walls occaisionally). The aiming can sometimes be a little off, and it can be quite annoying when you have crawled into the hiding place of the gods to discover that although you can see your enemies, it just won't let you shoot them! Having said that the death animations are fantastic, a 12 bore to the family jewels of an unsuspecting soldier is hard to tire of (Sick I know - oh well!)
It was the music that turned PS1 MOH from a good shoot 'em up, into a fantastic one, it's certainly true of Frontline. I sometimes wonder what my neighbours are thinking when I pipe the sound through my separates at around 110DB, especially if there's a machine gun nest on offer! It is the atmosphere and suspense which really makes it and definately can get you ducking and twitching at every footstep you hear.
Some may find it a little repetitive, which it is, but then it is just so much fun. I am still struggling with it on hard at the moment, and I've had the game since it first came out. I will do it eventually, and am hoping that the reward will be a two player option which it is definately lacking, and with the fantastic sniper rifle it could be so much fun.
So why not 5 stars? There used to be the best soundbyte on the first series when you took a soldiers tin hat off with a good clean shot, and despite many, many attempts to do get this sound to come out of Frontline it just doesn't.

I bought this game along with Deus Ex for the PS2 and played Medal of Honour first and havent stopped playing it since.
The starting beach scenes are fantastic and the game isnt that easy - a big plus and you cant just walk through it in about 2 hours. I am still playing the game and havent completed it but have to say up to now it is very good, in comparison to other games its as good (if not better) than half life and better than Max Payne (which I also like).
The enemy AI is very good, I first played Doom years ago and enemies in those days just stood in the same spot blasting at you, these days they are far more intelligent. Like Half Life the enemy will attack but if they start losing men will retreat, find cover etc. Also if you shoot the enemy in the foot they will fall over, a non lethal shot will only wound them and they will get back up - therefore head and essential body part shots are the ones that count.
The variety of weapons is excellent, unlike some other games of this genre you cannot shoot someone miles away with a pistol, you will need to use the sniper rifle with scope, if you can find the enemy through the mist and steam.
The balance of the game is a big plus. I love quake revolution for the sheer frag fest, not giving a toss how much damage just the kills you get, in medal of honour there are parts which are a full on bullet festival and other parts where a more stealthy approach is best - taking out people from long distance while staying concealed. Additionally there are the occasional puzzle / task parts which fit in nicely and dont take over.
On balance this is excellent and with 7 quid off what you would pay in the shops is well worth it. I reserve to give any game 5 stars but this probably derserves it.
