Jimmy Patterson in Medal of Honor Frontline. In this installment of the Medal of Honor series, Lt. Patterson is on a mission to infiltrate the German frontline and steal the HO-IX flying wing, an experimental Nazi weapon so powerful it could turn the tide of World War II. All 20 levels and six major missions in the game are based on real World War II events. You'll also find authentic weapons, including the Colt .45, Springfield sniper rifle, Panzerschreck rocket launcher, and Browning automatic rifle. The World War II experience just got more intense.

    I love every single part of this game. [Dec 2002, p.83]

    The fastest, smoothest, best sounding, best playing version of an already great game. [Dec 2002, p.88]

    I really wish EA would've gone for the M rating and added blood and gore, but the hell that is war is still accurately portrayed. [Dec 2002, p.142]

    The one snag is the character graphics, which are nicely detailed but look slightly indistinct (particularly for the enemy combatants) and are not quite up to the caliber of the rest of the visuals.

    Frontline has slight edge over its PC counterpart in level design and cinematic style, though the graphics are not as sharp and the enemy AI is a lot dumber.

    Levels look dazzling, but the actual tasks you must accomplish in them are often so contrived that all the realism fades away. [Winter 2002, p.101]
  7. A dull, linear first-person shooter with international conflict as its backdrop, that tries to put players into the boots of a WW2 soldier embroiled in the thick of the things, but fails miserably. [XGamer]

    One of the best FPS on the xbox. The sound I think is better than Halo, and the atmosphere is brilliant. From the opening mission on Omaha One of the best FPS on the xbox. The sound I think is better than Halo, and the atmosphere is brilliant. From the opening mission on Omaha Beach to the final mission where you steal the HO-IX, this game never lets up. Bloody brilliant. The missions are all nerve-racking and very exciting indeed, and very varied. The best WW2 game since MoHAA. Expand

    This is a solid one-player FPS that showcases the graphics/sound of the Xbox -- Dutch countrsides, small european villages, docks, land This is a solid one-player FPS that showcases the graphics/sound of the Xbox -- Dutch countrsides, small european villages, docks, land invasions. Next to "Splinter Cell", "Unreal" and "Halo", you won't find more riveting graphics and character renderings. Gameplay is also good and realistic -- you never storm into a place, and must rely on strategy, sniping, and covering your AI teammates to complete any mission. "Normal" dificulty is very hard! Fortunately, you have easy, normal, hard to swap between. Fully customizable controls, smart AI, and a lack of FPS cliches (boss monsters, indestructible characters, run-shoot-kill-kill-kill-everything scenarios) round up a satisfying shooter that requires more brains than brawn. So, it's a slower pace than "Halo" and more rooted in reality. Expect to crawl around with a rifle more than jumping into the fray with your Thompson machine gun. Multiplayer is a welcome addition, but they should have spent more time on it. The levels and options are good, but no system link capability and no bots means 4 players is the limit. Moreover, Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch are the only game variations! How disappointing. Because of its challenge and its terrific look/gameplay/music/setting, this is a game that begs for Xbox Live, co-op, and more mutliplayer variety; I hope they build upon it in future releases. Still, its a good one-player game that compares favorably to "Timesplitters 2", which has robust multiplayer capabilities but lacks the solid one-player story, sound, textures, realism, and graphics that "MOH" excels at -- it's a better crafted game. But remember that this is a slower, more challenging game that is more solo entertainment. Expand

    The second best FPS on Xbox. It's still no HALO, but Xbox has a limited number of FPS's. Love the gameplay, the graphics look good The second best FPS on Xbox. It's still no HALO, but Xbox has a limited number of FPS's. Love the gameplay, the graphics look good (not great) the sound is incredible. The opening level (storming the beaches) is nerve racking (in a good way). With a lot of really cool FPS's on the way (Unreal Champ, Jedi ll, etc) it looks to be a good year for Xbox FPS fans.. P.S. Anyone else notice that IGN and Gamespot seem to always rate Xbox games slightly lower than PS2, with no explaination. I mean it's the same game and in most cases the exact same review for both systems , just different scores at end. Expand

    PIECE OF CRAP! This game isn't even worth playing, the controls are hard, the objectives are pointless, and this is no where near the PIECE OF CRAP! This game isn't even worth playing, the controls are hard, the objectives are pointless, and this is no where near the greatness of "Medal of Honor - Allied Assault" on PC. Don't quit your day job guys, unless it's game making. Expand
