Medal of Honor has been a huge hit on the console systems. Now PC owners get to see what the fuss has been all about. From the look of things, the fuss is warranted. Allied Assault takes users into a realistic re-creation of World War II and allows them the chance to pummel the Nazis. One of the levels is based on June 6, 1944--D-day. You start aboard a boat, facing Omaha Beach and almost certain death, while the soldiers around you alternately pray or just sit there looking green... not unlike recent war-film footage such as the opening scenes of Saving Private Ryan. But this is no surprise: Spielberg's Dreamworks studio has had a hand in the development.
One of the innovations the game is touting is the range of realistic facial expressions given to the characters. Nazi soldiers look angry, or fearful as you surprise them. Your own compatriots on the landing craft look positively frightened or grim. Other missions will have you playing sniper in a ruined French town, disabling a Tiger Tank platoon and other missions based on WWII fact and speculation. WWII isn't often given realistic treatment in first-person shooters (such as Return of Castle Wolfenstein) but that's what makes this one special and so hotly anticipated. --Andrew S Bub
In Medal of Honor Allied Assault from Electronic Arts, players will assume the role of Lt. Mike Powell, member of the famed 1st Ranger Battalion who gets recruited by the OSS and battles through over 20 levels that are based on historical military campaigns of World War II.
Set during the most trying years of the war, 1942-1945, Medal of Honor Allied Assault gives players a sense of the courage it took to survive the landings at Normandy, the assault at Arzew, a rendezvous with the Resistance outside the village of St. Lo, and the push through the heavily defended border of Germany itself to take the bridge at Remagen.
Staying true to all the gameplay features that made Medal of Honor one of the most acclaimed and best-selling games launched in 1999, Medal of Honor Allied Assault will build on the success of that game and add new player weapons, new interactive Allied vehicles such as Sherman tanks and M3 Half Tracks, smarter enemy AI, and the ability to call for artillery strikes.
Medal of Honor Allied Assault is headquartered in Cabinet War Rooms at Whitehall, dispatching players on numerous campaigns, each with specific objectives to meet in terms of infiltration, execution and exfiltration. Missions will be based in the deserts of North Africa, on the bloody shores of France, across the tundra of Norway, and, ultimately, over the Rhine into Nazi Germany. These missions range from silencing the gun batteries at Port Arzew, to sabotaging U-boats at the sub pens of Trondheim, surviving the landing at Omaha Beach, and finally, holding the Ludendorff Bridge at Remagen- the only battle where the Germans used their dreaded V2 rockets in a tactical capacity.

RTCW - yeah its a great engine and it looks lovely, but nothing too new that pushes things forward.
AVP2 - again, good ideas but still doesn't "feel" right.
So what about MOH:AA? Well the first thing i noticed was that it was one of the most realistic and gritty FPS's I have played. For the first time it feels more like real combat and less like simulated worlds.
The enemy AI is basically superb. It is the best use of opponents using cover i have seen - which just adds to the realism.
Sound is top notch - the shouts of the enemy and the desperate radio announcments sound authentic and really add to the feel of the game. Ambient effects are great.
Graphics - locations are very well done, vehicles very well done, player models very good ..... basically well thought out levels.
Playability - its like playing the soldiers from half life all the time, with each encounter containing a different twist and turn of events to create a freash experience in each battle.
If you have watched the series Band of Brothers, it basically is as close as you can get to that without actually being in WW2.
Only one problem - no blood unless you download unofficial patches. I am sorry but to make the game a succesful replication of WW2 combat you need blood guts and glory. If somone applied the damage realism of Soldier of Fortune and the GeoMod tech of Red Faction, it would be the game to mark all others by for years to come.
On the downside, quite a few crashes, and on my machine every time I load a saved game from scratch (i.e.Read more ›
If you've played half life and thought that was tense, emmersive and exciting you ain't seen nothing yet. On a high end system the power of the quake3 engine used for the graphics will blow you away. The sun blinds you when you look up at it, trees gently sway in the wind and grass and dirt debris fly up all around whilst you crouch in a trench with bullits whizzing passed your ears.
This bring me on to the sound. The ambient score compliments the action perfectly and as is now the norm in fps's the music changes depending on whats happenning. If you are lucky enough to own a 5.1 surround system then playing the notoriously tricky omaha beach landing level is like being in the centre of Saving Private Ryan.You can hear your team mates shouting orders and coordinating attacks by themselves. They'll lay down cover fire for you and heal you (if they're a medic).
The A.I is simply superb. Enemy soldiers push over tables to crouch behind. If you lob a grenade they'll pick it up and throw it back. The death animations are sickeningly realistic. They'll lie, partially injured on the floor crawling away untill your fire a few more rounds into their backs, making them crash on the ground with a thud. Of course, enemys are zoned so a shot to the head takes them out quicker than a shot to the leg.
People complain that there is no blood in the game, but I think that the lack of blood doesn't take the realism away. If it was like Soldier of Fortune than too much gore (along with the crude death animations)would just make you sick.Read more ›
