This game has wowed various players, and made the Medal of Honor series even more well-known after the first three games of the series. This game had a World War II storyline a year before Call of Duty was developed.
Plot. June 6th, 1944. The Americans have landed at Normandy Beach, beginning their attack against the forces of Germany's notorious Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler. This historical event was known from that day forward, as D-Day. After a successful mission, Lt. Jimmy Patterson is recruited to gather information on what the Nazis are planning, which include a plane known as the Horten Ho 229. He gains information with the help of several informants and allies. And standing in his way for success and turning the tide of the war, is Baron Rudolph Ulbricht Von Sturmgeist, the commander of the facility where the secret jet is being constructed.
Concept. Medal of Honor is comprised of six different missions, each of them made up by smaller levels. Players must guide Patterson, and complete various missions in order to turn the tides of the war. It is known that the game takes place between the third and fourth missions of the original game.
Design. The game's design is memorable. When playing in game, the graphics are rendered in 3D, while briefing, the game presents some live-action footage from the clips of World War II.
Music. The music of the game is really well done. It really fits the whole aspects of World War II.
Memories. I first heard of Medal of Honor in 2002, when Frontline was popular. In the summer of 2002 in New York, me and my cousin played this game. We had a lot of fun with the gameplay, the storyline, the graphics and the music. It is one of those unforgettable games that people can play all day if they like.
History. The Medal of Honor series started in 1999, when it was first released on the PlayStation. The first game spawned two sequels: Underground for the PlayStation, and Allied Assault, which was released on PC. Allied Assault had two expansion packs: Spearhead and Breakthrough. The fourth game is Medal of Honor: Frontline, released in 2002, and meeting with utmost success. In 2003, Rising Sun was released, and on that same year, Infiltrator was released on the Game Boy Adavance. In 2004, Pacific Assault was released, and it was still on it's World War II spot, as it started. Most of the Medal of Honor games such as European Assault, Heroes, Vanguard, Airborne and Heroes 2, were taking place during World War II. In 2010, Medal of Honor was rebooted, taking place in modern times where they fight against the Taliban in the ongoing war on terror.
Rantings. Now the game is tough as nails and it will have you ranting with a passion. What bothers me of this game is that once you are killed, you have to start from the beginning and do it all over again. Sometimes the control mechanics for shooting and dodging can be a little bit excruciating.
Good Aspects. I really like how Medal of Honor is realistic in it's aspects. Though Call of Duty has some realistic aspects and sentimental value, most storylines like Black Ops and Modern Warfare are ficticious war events. Also, the storyline of this game is incredibly well done, and it is very enjoyable to play. This is a must play, and it has high replay value. If you have the new Medal of Honor that comes with this game, then play it now, because it's really good.
Overall. Medal of Honor: Frontline is an excellent game. The main characters defines the duty and heroism of a true soldier who fights for his country. This game gets a 9 out of 10.
