  • Summary: In Medal of Honor: European Assault, you'll join the effort to liberate Europe in 1942. As US Army Lieutenant William Holt, you must take command of a group of soldiers through battlefields based on actual WWII locations. In both single-player and multiplayer modes, your survival depends on your ability to master weapons, gather intelligence for future missions, and make smart choices. Collapse

    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. It's interesting that the enemies are so much smarter than your own squad members. [Aug 2005, p.81]
  3. Both atmospheric and exciting, and there isn't much higher praise for a historical first-person shooter than that.
  4. A mostly successful game that feels like it's simply bored of its own existence. [Aug 2005, p.47]
  5. It offers a less linear approach than many other titles and is fun enough to play through at least once, maybe twice given the various difficulty levels.
  6. Electronic Arts' decision to free the series from simply being one man on a very direct mission by creating a virtual battlefield is a wise one but one that hasn't quite reached as far as it could. [July 2005, p.106]
  7. European Assault is one of the ugliest current-gen games we've seen. Boring textures, a weak palette and a flimsy design ethic all round make it appear like slightly dressed up PSone data. The animation seems inspired by amateur puppetry and even the menus look like they were knocked up in the last day before submission. [Aug 2005, p.94]
