    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.

    well, we have here a rare gem! medal of honor was originally released back in 1999 for the sony playstation, developed by dreamworkswell, we have here a rare gem! medal of honor was originally released back in 1999 for the sony playstation, developed by dreamworks interactive and published by EA, this game had alot going for it, after goldeneye on the n64, this is probably the first fps game many people played, but what do i think of this game? well that fact that the story was written by Steven Spielberg is an impressive feature, but the story is kinda ignored because of the gameplay, which brings me onto the next topic, the gameplay is right up there, very similar to goldeneye in a way, you pace through a level, shooting nazis and completing objectives, this might not be a biggie today, but in 1999 it was incredible, and all on the playstation as well! the level design is excellent, although you will get those levels that you will hate, but there are loads of good ones, the physics are rock solid, they are almost realistic, nazis throw grenades back to you, and shooting them in the head will make their helmets fly off, the level design is excellent, with nazi bases and deserted villages to explore, search every corner!, the graphics are a joy, immersive and gritty, they capture nazi bases or occupied villages perfectly, i have some criticisms though, the controls are not so great, the default controls involve, the left analog stick being used for moving and turning, but the controls can easily be changed to a more managable setup in the options menu, there is no minimap either, but because the levels are easy to navigate through, it is not needed, somtimes the objectives are a bit cliche, occasionally you will get the generic find the documents or plant the explosives objectives, but the gameplay doesn't involve just shooting nazis, sometimes you will get an undercover mission that will involve disguising as a nazi, complete with fake credentials that you will have to show to the guards, or get out your silenced pistol and just shoot them in the face, this adds some variety to the game, these gameplay elements along with stunning graphics and rock solid physics make medal of honor a must have for any playstation collection, you can easily get this game for under 5 dollars/pounds these days, it has aged brilliantly, you can shove call of duty ghosts or battlefield 4 up your ass, cos medal of honor 1999 is where its at!
