The best first-person shooter for the PlayStation. An engaging plot, even for non-history buffs. Outstanding music and sound design.
Those looking for a Saving Private Ryan interactive will be pleased with this effort from the games division of Hollywood's DreamWorks studio. Polished with the grit of great WWII films, Medal of Honor shines brightly, despite the graphic limitations of the PlayStation.
As U.S. secret service officer James Patterson, you must embark on highly dangerous missions, sometimes in the trenches, sometimes undercover, but always alone and always eliminating the German Nazi threat. The Nazis are equipped with the same weapons as you, and they know how to use them. Throw a grenade and watch soldiers scatter, or better yet kick a steel pineapple back in their direction before it blows.
Missions are divided into challenging--but never frustrating--levels that include infiltrating a U-boat pen, destroying a war train while disguised as a German officer, or powering through a group of nasty Gestapo in a quaint French town. A mixture of stealth fighting and action movie bravado, using each with prudence is essential for successfully completing levels.
This game is suspenseful, in the way that a good page-turner keeps you up at night. You'll be playing until the end of the level, but when that comes, the briefing for the next level is just too enticing to stop. --Jeff Young

My biggest problem is with the save-game system. Though most of the missions are short enough that it's no big deal being slammed right back to the beginning of the mission every time you get killed (and you will...again and again, unless you've memorized the location of every enemy and have really good reflexes, which yours truly doesn't). At times, though, after having survived the onslaught of five, six enemies at a time in a wide-open field, the last thing I want to do is have to replay that level. Like all 3D shooters, there's no peripheral vision, and Medal of Honor is even more frustrating in this respect because a) there's no auto-targeting, and b) no radar. Many times I've found myself nearing the end of the level, only to have an SMG-toting Nazi pop up behind me and in two seconds flat eat up my whole health bar. Not an enjoyable experience, if I may say so.
Other than the insanely difficult gameplay, there's a lot to be commended -- a white-knuckle score, good controls, bits of humour (be sure to check out the "Conversational German for the American Soldier" demo -- hilarious), diversity, lots of game options. I guess I'll just have to put my gripes to the fact that I'm not a big fan of Doom-type games.
