  1. Gives World War II games a bad name by skimping on the essentials - story, A.I. and multiplayer - to focus on floating icons and the art of hiding behind crates. Instead, just hide your wallet.

    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]

Medal Of Honor European Assault is surprisingly a very fun FPS game. The single player is fun with very unusual mission objectives like looking for secrets and killing the different bosses per mission. The graphics are not bad for a 2005 game and the shooter itself is very solid and very new like when you are in cover you can peek from your cover to see you enemy without standing to see unlike in Call Of Duty And Battlefield. But the problem in this game is the total length in the single player. Finishing the whole single player will only take like maybe 2-3 hours and the whole story in this game is bad and forgettable but the boss battles here in this game is actually not bad in my opinion and it is actually the only thing i like in the single player. The best that the game can give you is the multiplayer. The multiplayer in Medal Of Honor is actually fun with Good maps and fun game modes. Which actually is very addicting and I played the multiplayer for like 20 hours.The game is actually good and a very classical Medal Of Honor Game. I give it an 8/10 For Medal Of Honor European Assault because of its Fun and satisfying Multiplayer experience. Full Review »

    With Medal of Honor: European Assault the excellent game series moves to Europe, the Soviet Union and North Africa.

    European Assault has less linear levels and has more beautiful graphics than its predecessor Medal of Honor Rising Sun. For the first time you can make your character lay down and there is now an adrenaline meter which fills up by shooting enemies and scoring headshots. Once the meter is full your character becomes temporarily invincible and gets unlimited ammo for a short time.

    The mulit player mode is very fun and has a lot of maps. Unfortunately EA ditched the possibility to play with a friend co-op on the same screen.

    I rate Medal of Honor European Assault 9 out of 10.
