Medal of Honor: European Assault (2005)

American Lt. William Holt fights the Nazi’s in France, North Africa, Russia and Belgium.


One thing the Medal of Honor games have never overlooked is reminding us that these games are based on real people in real events in a real war. That is really sobering, as it should be. Generally, this is a very well-designed game so it is a shame to report that the final level is broken (you have to play half-an-hour to get to a point where you die almost instantly over and over and over) and that German soldiers can shoot you regardless of where their gun is pointing. Otherwise, boss Nazi’s, multiple optional secondary objectives, great controls and eye-catching animations are folded, along with an outstanding soundscape, into the superb atmosphere that is the hallmark of the Medal of Honor series. Shame about the broken final level.

This game contains mild swear words and war violence, extended gun violence, melee violence.
