    The environments look spectacular, with appropriate decor lining every object in the huge stages and good use of shadows and lighting. Character animation is a riot.
  2. The weapons effects are likewise perfect, with the machine gun sounds being nothing short of thunderous and the sounds of bullets whizzing past your head being just like you'd imagine them.
  3. While Medal's mechanics are every bit as sophisticated as "Goldeneye," it's clear that PlayStation isn't up to the task in terms of graphics, though that shouldn't be any surprise. What is does have is gameplay by the trench-load, war movie tension and really grizzly violence.
  4. The closest Playstation will get to "Goldeneye," both in terms of system performance as well as the standard set by Mr. Bond's breakthrough gameplay. This game was a complete surprise, a great game released with little to no hype.
  5. The game engine, story, graphics and sound are so realistic that the addiction won't let you go for a second!
  6. The developers have taken the theme and backdrop story very seriously and it shows because the WWII iconography in MoH is captured beautifully not only in the costumes of the characters and the design of the architecture, but it also permeates through the detailed movie-like orchestra scores that make up the background music.
  7. The missions are too short, the controls too slow, the graphics too dated, the characters too dull.

    This game will always be in my mind what started my FPS gaming history, as well as ignited my love for WWII and gaming in general. For itsThis game will always be in my mind what started my FPS gaming history, as well as ignited my love for WWII and gaming in general. For its time, the gameplay, graphics, controls, and probably most memorable: the art, narrator, and music, had no equal. In some ways, they still have no equal. Truly a classic. You cannot call yourself a FPS lover without going through the fires of war that is the original Medal of Honor. Expand

The story was created by director/producer Steven Spielberg.

The goal of the game is to complete objectives, such as destroying enemy positions, and kill enemy German forces in the process.
    The game also includes a split screen deathmatch mode, pitting two players against each other in various maps. Players can also unlock several secret characters after completing the game or through cheat codes, from notable historical figures such as Filipino patriot Jose Rizal, playwright William Shakespeare and even outlandish characters such as a German Shepherd dog and a velociraptor with a The Lost World: Jurassic Park design.
