    The A.I. could use more brainpower, but the controls handle beautifully, and the graphics and sounds are stellar.
  2. The action is compressed and more intense than the regular game. But that compressed action, although more intense, means you'll zip through the single-player campaign in short order -- about 6 hours.
  3. Embodies exactly what made the original such a treat to play - creativity and plenty of action... [But] some may view the single-player side as wanting, due to its very short completion time.
  4. The fun vehicle levels, tons of weapons, gun emplacements to use, and scripted, cinematic gameplay all show just how short the single player mode is, even if it's generally really good stuff.
  5. This is a hefty new multiplayer package, considering that this an expansion and you sometimes don't get 12 multiplayer maps in a regular full game. Frankly, it helps compensate for the fact that the single player campaign is so short.
  6. Dying repeatedly to learn the magic path can get tiresome, even in a short game. [Feb 2003, p.81]
  7. You can finish the entire single-player game in a single evening, with time left over to take a dinner break, watch an hour or two of television, and then turn in early. Some demos are longer. [Feb 2003, p.75]

    A stellar beginning which trails out to a predictable, uninspiring and all too short experience. Competent but oh so disappointing.

    I loved Allied Assault, and when Spearhead came out many years ago I got to the store as fast as I could and bought it up. I was quickly I loved Allied Assault, and when Spearhead came out many years ago I got to the store as fast as I could and bought it up. I was quickly disappointed. An annoying Battle of the Bulge level where if a single German even touched the trench you lost; disappointing weaponry; and gameplay that I completed in two and a half hours gave a very poor gaming experience. I did not enjoy this game, which says something from someone who loved Allied Assault. Expand
