    The game is great and has great graphics. the only big problem about the game is........... REPETITIVE gameplay. But overall the missions are great and the game is great a most buy for world war 2 buffs.

    This game is a really good game for gamecube. It also has cop-mode for all the little kids out there who have a brother.

    It's fun and not many shooting games have a two player campaign.

  1. As awe-inspiring and grandiose as the Pearl Harbor level is, it's still just a rail shooter. The missions are uneven, ranging from uninspired "stealth" levels to well-designed artillery raids.

    On retreading the levels enemy attacks become predictable puppet shows, with mad-eyed soldiers lining up to get killed exactly where they did many times before. It's the kind of repetition more commonly associated with lightgun games these days. [Christmas 2003, p.109]

    We were disappointed when "Frontline" failed to take advantage of its World War II settings, but it's galling to see that EA still hasn't got it right with Rising Sun. If there's ever a case against World War III, then surely this is it. [Christmas 2003, p.100]
