  1. Carnage, carnage, carnage. That's what you get when you open the box. Medal of Honor: European Assault may not be the most challenging game in the series, but it's certainly the most brutal.
  2. The nonlinear design, careful difficulty ramp, and outstanding presentation bring this one above the pack. And hey, at least it doesn't have an Omaha Beach level.

    The one major area where European Assault fails to deliver is on the multiplayer side of things. While there are plenty of cool gametypes, from old standards like Deathmatch to some interesting objective-based games, the only way you can play with friends is on a single TV.
  4. It was maddening to nearly finish a mission, then die and have to start over. There are no checkpoints, but that's part of this game's challenge.

    With European Assault, EA promised to fix all the errors of "Rising Sun" and reinvent the genre as a whole. A bit surprisingly, the game does almost all of this, but for the first time in the series, the technical limits of the current console platforms negatively affect the game play. Despite these difficulties, European Assault successfully combines the intensity of "Call of Duty" with the cinematic and epic feeling of the Medal of Honor series to deliver a more open and less linear game play experience than before. [June 2005, p.68]
  6. EA's latest in the MoH franchise adopts a more interesting open-ended squad-based shooter approach, but falls short due to a mediocre multiplayer offering.

    European Assault is one of the ugliest current-gen games we’ve seen. Boring textures, a weak palette and a flimsy design ethic all round make it appear like slightly dressed up PSone data. The animation seems inspired by amateur puppetry and even the menus look like they were knocked up in the last day before submission. [Aug 2005, p.94]
