Summary

A great WWII shooter.

The Good

A must have for the Playstation, it was an instant classic in '99 and stood out as the first WWII game that took itself very seriously. This is where we're introduced to the main character Lt.Patterson and the Col.Hargrove who recruits you to the OSS to perform special missions such as espionage and sabotage.The game has many sides to it, in some missions you have to steal disguises and use silenced weapons, in other missions you need to go Leroy Jenkins through the entire map to finish it.

The Bad

Some enemies are much too overpowered, you can take many hits from enemies with handguns or rifles for example but you die in one hit if shot by an enemy with a rocket launcher, witch makes sense but is still frustrating.

There can sometimes be slow down when certain effects occur such as explosions etc.

The controls are not bad but could have been better both in aiming and button layout.

Too short. The game has 7 missions spread across 24 levels but when it comes down to it you can finish this game in a matter of hours.

The Bottom Line

An awesome game to play and one you can be proud to own, it has it's good and bad but the bottom line is it's a great game. It's a much outdated by today's standards but if you can enjoy older games then this should be a thrilling game for you.
