    There is nothing particularly inventive or innovative about the game's features, but played as a whole, the overall experience is very good, very satisfying. It's good despite the faults in AI, the less than attractive visuals, and an unnaturally slow beginning.
  2. The game's wide-open levels actually encourage players to explore, giving the series a fresh feel compared to past games and other World War II shooters. Unfortunately, a very brief campaign and no online multiplayer means the fun doesn't last long.

    European Assault represents the high point for the series in terms of graphics (not counting the PC titles, that is), as it features some nice environmental textures and impressive looking character models.
  4. AceGamez
    A war game worth playing. It's easy to get to grips with, satisfying to play and provokes some pastime thinking with its well-told story, complimented with old-fashioned clips.
  5. Play Magazine
    A mostly successful game that feels like it's simply bored of its own existence. [Aug 2005, p.47]
  6. Both atmospheric and exciting, and there isn't much higher praise for a historical first-person shooter than that.
  7. Nintendo Power
    It's interesting that the enemies are so much smarter than your own squad members. [Aug 2005, p.81]
  8. The only real major problems that keep European Assault from being an absolutely stellar game like its Frontline predecessor is the fact that there is no online multiplayer and the rather short campaign mode.
  9. It may not appease the history buffs, but it will delight the trigger-happy.

    A pleasant surprise. Yes, we were still creeping through bombed-out aircraft hangars and taking over bunkers brimming with Nazis, but we were enjoying ourselves for the first time in ages.
  11. It was maddening to nearly finish a mission, then die and have to start over. There are no checkpoints, but that's part of this game's challenge.
  12. The one thing I love about war games is that feeling that all hell is breaking loose and things aren't going to be getting better. European Assault captures that feeling perfectly.
  13. A great war game; great controls, great atmosphere. It continues the road walked with Frontline and tweaks some of the elements.

    The Gfx on Gamecube are very bad and from the 90s. The gameplay is like a arcade dugshoot. The worst of all Medal of Honor titles.
