  1. The game’s addictive pick up and play gameplay makes it a lot more accessible, despite the high difficultly level. The brilliant graphical presentation and use of excellent atmospheric music and sounds also help to make this title an absolute gem.
  2. The varied levels, the suspense and action, the tense gameplay and the nods to the classic coin-ops of yesteryear made this a surprise hit for the Gameboy Advance.
  3. Infiltrator manages to do what "Rising Sun" couldn’t: it innovates the series and moves it along in a new gameplay direction while maintaining the sense of atmosphere that made the Medal of Honor series so fun to play.
  4. The perfect mix of action and strategy. The challenges within are tough enough to keep you interested, but not so easy that you will complete the game in a few days.

    Just a tad on the short side, but it's an incredible and fun challenge while it lasts...and one hell of a wartime romp on the GBA.
  6. 85
    Not quite a perfect game -- it's a bit short, difficult in the later stages, and Jake walks too slowly for my tastes -- but it's still an addictive, impressive achievement. If there was some sort of "Most Improved Franchise" award, the GBA Medal of Honor series would win the 2003 prize hands down.
  7. A fun handheld game that should please anyone who's looking for an action game with teeth.
  8. A great action game with multiplayer modes and a great connectivity bonus for those the GC version of "Rising Sun." [Spring 2004, p.32]
  9. The genius of it, though, is that Rambo tactics will just get you killed.

    While the first-person shooter levels are average, the third-person levels are substantially well balanced. The A.I. is very intelligent. [Apr 2004, p.86]
  11. I admit the game doesn't look very serious but all it takes is a few minutes of play to see that this game really kicks ass.
  12. It may not play much like a traditional Medal of Honor title, but it is easy to see that it is part of the same series, and not just because it shares a World War II setting with it's 3D brethren; the same method of executing a mission is very much intact in Infiltrator.
  13. Even though the game is too short, the slick presentation and enjoyable gameplay add up to a rewarding experience that largely overcomes its flaws.
  14. The art has a cartoonish look, but the action is intense and challenging. [Feb 2004, p.152]
  15. 75
    The action is intense and the missions are just enough extra. Give me a little smarter targeting, some NPC allies every now and then, a little less stealth, and I may be willing to award this game's sequel with a medal of its own.
  16. With a few more levels, more varied objectives and less psychic guards it would be indispensable.
  17. Surprisingly good. By being considerably different to the 'bigger' games in the series, Infiltrator is a title worthy of attention from fans and doubters alike, while still having enough links to real events to make it deserving of the Medal of Honor moniker. [Jan 2004, p.116]
  18. 60
    Dipping into the unlocked levels on their own in quick-launch seems without purpose, but the campaign mode scores highly during its first run through, even if there’s not quite enough game to make you want to face the challenge again.
  19. Honestly, it was just hard to get into the Nazi-killing vibe with tinny MIDI music and a few pixilated newsreel clips between levels. [Nov 2003, p.176]

    Picked this up cheap (£7.50) after reading the Games TM review and have not been dissapointed. Normally I shy away from EA titles Picked this up cheap (£7.50) after reading the Games TM review and have not been dissapointed. Normally I shy away from EA titles especially the recent MOH's but this is a rare EA gem. The new graphical syle lends itself perfectly to the GBA and the old-skool gameplay (rock hard and not too dissimillar to the Metal Slug series) is very unlike EA but welcome. When compared to the travasty that was underground, infiltrator is light years ahead. Full Review »

    It's MOH with all of that Nazi destructo goodness, just compact size. If you're looking for a good game to spruce up those It's MOH with all of that Nazi destructo goodness, just compact size.
