Description

The creators of the original Medal of Honor take you back to explore the time of the Vietnam war. Playing as marine Dean Shepard, you travel through lush terrains and exotic landscapes to lead your AI controlled squad through jungles, tunnels and hooches while battling the North Vietnamese Army and the Viet Cong. To recreate a cinematic feel, the gameplay uses many scripted events and licensed sixties music.

If the single player campaign doesn’t send you home in a body bag, you can mow down some friends in the fierce multiplayer action. Play both sides using weapons of their era, from M60s to RPDs in multiplayer class-based game types such as Search and Destroy, Recover the Documents, Frontline and the traditional DeathMatch.

Trivia

Engine

The game uses a highly-modified version of the Unreal Tournament engine, which was quite a challenge for the developers in order to get it to run well on the Xbox.

For the Xbox' version, the original AI routines were rewritten and a shader system was added. For the PC version, however, they made use of the additional power and memory to create advanced water effects and dynamic shaders.

German version

All blood effects were removed in the German version.
