Taking the gameworld by storm several years ago when this title debuted on the Playstation, MOH Frontline is the first time the title has appeared on a Nintendo games machine.
This title was first launched on the PS2, however for the translation to both the GameCube and XBox, whilst not doing everything it could have for the added abilities of these machines, did include a deathmatch component for up to four players to duke it out in.
The Medal of Honor series is renowned for it's attention to detail and painstaking accuracy in it's depiction of the World War II environments including player models, weaponry and building to make for a supremely immersive package.
The entire game structures itself around a number of missions that actually took place during World War II and are all based on actual history instead of fiction. The game essentially looks real and there is a feeling of Saving Private Ryan or Band of Brothers written all over it. As you can tell by the screenshots provided, the level of authenticity in the game is it's strongest selling point along with it's amazing audio that will spellbind you all the way through the game.
Every weapon sounds authentic and has it's own distinctive firing sound from small calibre weapons through to cannons and tanks. Combine that with a real score written expressly for the game by composer Michael Giacchino and performed by the Northwest Symphonia and you are onto a sure fired winner.
The way the game is played out is essentially through a series of missions that act as checkpoints as a way of saving progress. My only real gripe with this is that some missions are way too long and after repeating them a number of times, it is exasperating and only the sheer quality of the game otherwise is all that keeps you going.
