Infiltrator manages to do what Rising Sun couldn’t: it innovates the series and moves it along in a new gameplay direction while maintaining the sense of atmosphere that made the Medal of Honor series so fun to play. Recommended for any Medal of Honor (or action fan, for that matter) with a GBA.
Medal of Honor: Infiltration is such a well-crafted and enjoyable game that it's going to dominate your handheld for some time. The varied levels, the suspense and action, the tense gameplay and the nods to the classic coin-ops of yesteryear made this a surprise hit for the Gameboy Advance. The fact it also has great graphics and boasts one of the best audio experiences on the GBA to date means it's a must for every gamer's collection.
Don't let last year's terrible port of Medal of Honor Underground frighten you away from Medal of Honor Infitrator. The development team got this one right on the money with a game design and technology that's made specifically for the Game Boy Advance, while still retaining the feel of a Medal of Honor game on the handheld. Infiltrator's is just a tad on the short side, but it's an incredible and fun challenge while it lasts...and one hell of a wartime romp on the GBA.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this first review for me. There is a lot to love in this game. If you enjoy action and shooting Nazis then this is a creamy sandwich. As in keeping with the scoring scale for this site, I would give it a 31 out of 40. Too bad a sequel was canned so pick up this title. You could do a lot worse than this.
Medal of Honor: Infiltrator borrows heavily from the classic games it's inspired by and, at the same time, captures most of the things that give the franchise its identity. The typical overhead shoot-'em-up doesn't have much to offer except the sheer thrill of killing one enemy after another. Netherock has taken that simple design and has updated it for today's player by adding depth through the inclusion of stealth elements, tricky AI, first-person crosshair-shooting sections, and a varied assortment of mission objectives. The end result is a fun handheld game that should please anyone who's looking for an action game with teeth.
Medal of Honor: Infiltrator is a solid action/shooter experience that is not to be missed, whether you like the other games in the series or not. It may not play much like a traditional Medal of Honor title, but it is easy to see that it is part of the same series, and not just because it shares a World War II setting with it's 3D brethren; the same method of executing a mission is very much intact in Infiltrator. Honestly, this is one of the better action games on the GBA. It may not be without its problems, but Medal of Honor: Infiltrator is definitely worth the time of any action-loving GBA owner.
Quelle heureuse surprise de voir que MOH reprend du poil de la bête sur GBA. La série amorce un virage complet après le catastrophique Underground et de FPS se transforme en beat'em all/tir avec un soupçon d'infiltration. La réalisation graphique est de très bonne facture, les phases de jeu bien dosées et si la difficulté est conséquente, je ne saurais que trop vous conseiller d'acquérir ce titre si vous voulez renouer des liens avec cette grande saga.
The graphics are very colorful and intelligently used, especially with the full-motion (yes you read right) movies, adding much to the presentation. But when you game on the go, you still need more gameplay to warrant the purchase price.
Medal of Honor : Espionnage est un titre accrocheur. Si le jeu devient assez rapidement difficile, ses qualités de gameplay font qu'on y reviendra toujours avec plaisir après s'être calmé les nerfs suite à une bonne raclée. Plutôt agréable visuellement et proposant un contenu efficace, voici donc une bonne surprise qui ne révolutionne certes pas le genre, mais qui reste suffisamment bien fignolée pour occuper des heures durant les amateurs des jeux d'action militaire d'antan.
On that last note, it's probably worth pointing out that owners of the older GBA will have trouble with the nighttime stealth levels. Trying to play them with the light turned off on my GBA SP upped the difficulty tenfold. On the whole though, Infiltrator is a good, solid example of how to give a lucrative franchise fresh legs on a handheld. With a few more levels, more varied objectives and less psychic guards it would be indispensable. As it is, it's perfectly good fun to play while it lasts, relatively challenging, and I've definitely got a smug grin on my face as planned. Just don't expect it to last you beyond Boxing Day.

Although I did think that the Duck Hunt-style levels were a nice (and all too brief) change of pace, the basic meat-and-potatoes of Infiltrator just leaves me cold. The "stealth" (which isn’t too terribly deep or gripping) only manages to bog down the action, creating a game that misses the frenzied fun of Commando or Gun.Smoke. Also, I really came to appreciate how much the PC and console versions of Medal of Honor rely on their excellent sound, stories, and production values. Honestly, it was just hard to get into the Nazi-killing vibe with tinny MIDI music and a few pixilated newsreel clips between levels.
I wouldn't place Medal of Honor Infiltrator above the likes of Metal Slug, but it fills an important and under-populated niche on GBA. After playing it, it's obvious that taking the third-person overhead route is really the only way for this series to go on a handheld. The action is intense and the missions are just enough extra. Give me a little smarter targeting, some NPC allies every now and then, a little less stealth, and I may be willing to award this game's sequel with a medal of its own.
Dipping into the unlocked levels on their own in quick-launch seems without purpose, but the campaign mode scores highly during its first run through, even if there’s not quite enough game to make you want to face the challenge again. There’s lots of fun to be had and importantly Medal of Honour: Infiltrator shows that to make a good game for the GBA requires simple controls and an individual style, rather than the latest 3D engine.
Don't let my low score fool you. I don't get into these kinds of games, but if you liked classic war games like Commando or Mercs, this is about the closest thing you'll find to a sequel.
