  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.
  2. 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]

    Great game, really epic missions and story, and a quite aweswome soundtrack, a little unrealistic, such as killing tanks with grenades, but still quite exicting gameplay, graphics could use a little bump. Full Review »

    The best Medal of Honor game I've played in a long time, but not the best FPS, despite being a few years old it still manages to be a fun time, the problem is that it is incredibly short, I beat it in one day, and after the campaign there is no multiplayer for it to fall back on, but it's fun while it lasts, the controls are great but I do recommend you turn of the vibrate function, and the sound is fantastic with an awesome soundtrack, powerful sounding guns, and great voice work, and has a surprisingly decent story backing it up, but the graphics are crappy, making it hard to pick off targets at a distance, and honestly I think Medal of Honor Frontline looked better, and the gameplay is awesome but can be frustrating at times, the cover system works fantastic most of the time, and there are side objectives to take that give you extra lives and medals, so European Assault is a good game, and a welcome addition to the Medal of Honor series, the problem is it's just way to short, and has some other annoying issues, but if you still have a PS2 and are looking for a good FPS or are a fan of the series I do recommend at least a rental.
