Customer Review

on 28 March 2006
Judging by MOH Rising Suns long single player campaign and superb multiplayer I was looking forward to European Assault. However I was somewhat dissappointed when I began playing. The action feels reasonably smooth and fluid with few gripes and the use of the iron sites to aim is a good addition as is the excellent lean feature which allows you to peek over and around cover to shoot the enemy.
However, the graphics, although supposedly updated are not as good as Rising Suns and the shooting is just not as immersive as Call of Duty or Brothers in Arms, it's main competitors. Also the addition of a "controllable" squad must have been added simply to annoy as your men do not go where you order them and run aound pointlessly most of the time whilst doing little to aid your progress.What really lets it down is how short the game is, with only 11 missions including a shorter prologue mission it just does not pack enough bang for your buck. This is also not helped by the ending which is simply impossible on normal difficulty without the use of cheats and only serves to frustrate.
Having completed the single player i'd hoped that the absolutely brilliant multiplayer from Rising Sun hadn't been tampered with. How wrong I was. The graphics actually look worse than in single player and there are no fixed guns, small arenas and NO BOTS. I felt so cheated. My final gripe is about the new adrenaline feature which EA obviously added to spice things up but it is ridiculously unrealistic and compared to the realism of Brothers in Arms it is just no good.
Overall a good franchise let down by a poor game which should have been so much better with a little more thought.
