Description

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault - Spearhead is an expansion pack add-on to Allied Assault.

Taking the role of Sergeant Jack Barnes, players begin a mission behind the enemy lines on D-Day and will eventually play through the Battle of the Bulge and finally to the fall of Berlin in nine new single-player missions. The player will fight the Germans together with AI-controlled British, American and Russian troops. Also included are lots of new authentic British and Russian weapons.

Multiplayer has been refined with one new multiplayer mode and several new maps.

Trivia

German version

There are a number of changes in the German version:
  • All swastikas were removed or replaced with iron crosses.
  • On most posters the text was removed.
  • With the exception of the finished mission goals, all level statistics were removed.
  • The cutscenes using documentary film material were re-cut. Additionally the translation removes all mentions of "Nazi" or mentioning of specific persons, e.g. Hitler.
A detailed list of changes can be found on schnittberichte.com (German).
