In Medal of Honor: Allied Assault
, the first PC installment of the famous Playstation game series
, you assume the role of Sgt. Mike Powell, a member of the 1st Ranger Batallion. You have been recruited by the OSS (some sort of secret service) and need to battle through over 20 levels based on historical campaigns during WW2.
Missions include the landing at Normandy (D-Day), assaulting the town Arzew, a rendez-vous with the french Resistance outside the village of St. Lo, and even taking the famous bridge at the German town Remagen. You will need to rescue agents, plant explosives, assault desert camps with your team and of course kill every Nazi that comes into your gunsight.
There are plenty of weapons available, including the MP40, some sniper and assault rifles, hand grenades and explosive charges.

Bans and censorship
- There is no blood to be seen at all throughout the game. EA/2015 removed all blood so they could retain a Teen ESRB rating.
- The US and EU versions are forbidden to be distributed in Germany because they contain symbols which are regarded as unconstitutional (e.g. swastika). For the German version the developers had to remove any appearances of swastikas. Most of them are replaced with an Iron Cross. Additionally in the level "Scuttling the U-529" all Hitler salutes were removed.
Medal of Honor: Allied Assault
was featured on the cover of the February 2002 issue of Computer Gaming World, where it was billed as the "most intense WWII game ever".
The credits say: "This game is dedicated to all the men, women, and their families, that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. You will always be remembered."
The game has no proper ending: final mission, "The End", credits.
The Wehrmacht soldiers speak flawless German. A player understanding the language, may occasionally have a slight advantage, as they can anticipate the enemies' actions: "Er ist im Luftschacht!" (He's in the air shaft!), "Mein Gewehr klemmt!" (My rifle's jammed!).
The map of Europe in the main menu is not historically correct. Czechia and Slovakia are separate countries, Yugoslavia has been dissolved, and Poland and Germany have their present day borders.
- In the fourth mission the player is assigned to find an OSS agent named Manon. This woman has appeared in countless Medal of Honor games as a minor character, offering to meet up with the main character of the game to give information. She is also the main character in Medal of Honor: Underground.
- During the credits, a 1940s-style song is played while pictures of WWII are displayed on screen. One of these is a picture of Mike Powell and what appears to be his regiment. In the picture the player can see Mike Powell and also James "Jimmy" Patterson, the main character from Medal of Honor: Frontline, which had not been released at the time of this game's debut.
