    The A.I. could use more brainpower, but the controls handle beautifully, and the graphics and sounds are stellar.
  2. The action is compressed and more intense than the regular game. But that compressed action, although more intense, means you'll zip through the single-player campaign in short order -- about 6 hours.
  3. Embodies exactly what made the original such a treat to play - creativity and plenty of action... [But] some may view the single-player side as wanting, due to its very short completion time.
  4. The fun vehicle levels, tons of weapons, gun emplacements to use, and scripted, cinematic gameplay all show just how short the single player mode is, even if it's generally really good stuff.
  5. This is a hefty new multiplayer package, considering that this an expansion and you sometimes don't get 12 multiplayer maps in a regular full game. Frankly, it helps compensate for the fact that the single player campaign is so short.

    Dying repeatedly to learn the magic path can get tiresome, even in a short game. [Feb 2003, p.81]

    You can finish the entire single-player game in a single evening, with time left over to take a dinner break, watch an hour or two of television, and then turn in early. Some demos are longer. [Feb 2003, p.75]

    I first played this when I picked up the Medal of Honor: Allied Assault Deluxe Edition and it was part of the package.

    The Spearhead
    I first played this when I picked up the Medal of Honor: Allied Assault Deluxe Edition and it was part of the package.

    The Spearhead expansion consists of three new perspectives. Working with the British in Normandy to assassinate a Colonel, surviving in the Battle of the Bulge with the Americans and eventually storming Berlin with the Russians. The game weirdly goes to great pains to make sure you are playing the same character across all three of these arcs which seems unnecessary.

    Personally the first mission where you are air-dropped into Normandy and meet up with the British I thought was great (albeit I might be showing some bias as someone from the UK). I always find the British struggle a bit more interesting than some of the usual American viewpoints. This expansion is worth it for the first mission alone.

    The Battle of the Bulge has some interesting elements but has one particularly horrendous mission where you are in a half track operating the turret. At this point you are effectively on rails and have to shoot various attacking vehicles and enemies. However, you have no way to dodge, no way to slow down and no way to heal. On top of all these you are still vulnerable to small arms fire. This is one of the few times in a game where I had to use console commands to heal myself as I was stuck for a long time getting randomly killed by various enemies.

    The Russian mission has a nice section where you get to drive a T34 and hold off a counter attack. On top of all this, all the new weapons in this pack including Lee Enfield and Mosin-Nagant rifles are fun to use.

    The main story mode is very short, probably only 2 hours or so long depending on how long you spend on the half-track. However, most of the original appeal was likely new skins and weapons for multiplayer. Sadly in 2017 with game spy this is moderately useless.

    Oh on top of all this, Gary Oldman features as your main characters voice in the end-credits unexpectedly.

    I loved Allied Assault, and when Spearhead came out many years ago I got to the store as fast as I could and bought it up. I was quickly I loved Allied Assault, and when Spearhead came out many years ago I got to the store as fast as I could and bought it up. I was quickly disappointed. An annoying Battle of the Bulge level where if a single German even touched the trench you lost; disappointing weaponry; and gameplay that I completed in two and a half hours gave a very poor gaming experience. I did not enjoy this game, which says something from someone who loved Allied Assault. Expand
