    A masterpiece, plain and simple. From the opening Pearl Harbor sequence, to the rain-soaked midnight raids, to the machine-gun-mounted elephant rides, Rising Sun oozes with jaw-dropping quality at every single turn.
  2. The computer AI against you is not bad. I have found splashes of extreme stupidity with some enemy soldiers as they just stand there and wait for you to shoot them. But others will run at you with their bayonettes pointed, which will damage you.

    Each iteration of the Medal of Honor series has been better than the last, and Rising Sun is no exception. It would have been nice to see EA take a few risks and break formula, but the game's a great war shooter nonetheless.

    Extra grainy footage or not, and lame returns to the campaign to dig up cheat codes aside, this Medal of Honor experience is just good enough to romp through on a rental, should please fans of the series, but this is certainly not enough to justify a purchase.
  5. Simply doesn’t deliver what Xbox’ers are used to in terms of a quality first-person shooter.
  6. Quite simply, the game offers nothing that you can’t get in the other games, and can’t have a better time getting in the other games.

    We were disappointed when "Frontline" failed to take advantage of its World War II settings, but it's galling to see that EA still hasn't got it right with Rising Sun. If there's ever a case against World War III, then surely this is it. [Christmas 2003, p.100]

The AI was good for its time, and the shooting mechanics brilliant, but the overall experience was mediocre. However, if we include the storyline in this equation, the game was oustanding. Expand
