Even so, once you upgrade your older Mac and get past those pesky snipers, this shooter rocks. Medal of Honor is a surefire classic. You don't want to miss it.
Despite our fawning, the game is not perfect. Nazis may pick up and return tossed grenades (while you may not) and long sniper shots-complete with echoing weapon reports-that take out one half of a paired sentry has no effect on the surviving sentry. Call us crazy, but we think we'd notice if the fellow standing less than a foot away was shot through the neck. The final complaint is where's the ending? "The End" might work in the movies, but after putting hours into saving humanity from the Nazi scourge we'd like a short film of a trip back to the beach as an old man a la "Saving Private Ryan." Something, anything would have been better than just the credits! Minor gripes aside, it's no surprise that we love Medal of Honor: Allied Assault. The attention to detail and exciting plot makes this game not only the best around but the bar-none bar-setter.

Medal of Honor plays like some intense and gritty war film. Even going through parts of basic training, consisting of weapon and movement exercises, made me want to leap into a battle. All of the authentic guns and grenades look and work as they would in reality. Your view also displays a very nice view-bob when walking, and has a feeling of weight when you jump.

I'm also a huge FPS fan so I've played almost all of 'em and I have to say that MOH:AA is one of the best, if not the best, FPS I've ever played. The story, gameplay and graphics are all stunning.

Overall, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault delivers an immersive World War II experience unmatched by other games. The variety of missions keep the game from being just another cookie-cutter shooter with WW2 trappings, and the AI makes sure that it stays challenging, even for experienced gamers. The lack of an overarching plot might seem like a drawback to some, but if you consider the missions as episodes in the grand story of the Second World War, it doesn't need to be.

Great graphics, detailed and challenging missions, and varied multiplayer modes keep Medal of Honor: Allied Assault interesting for hours. The lack of 3-D audio is a drawback, though, especially in multiplayer games.

MoH:AA est un bon jeu malgré ses quelques défauts. Il bénéficie notamment d'une grande durée de vie. Le jeu en mode médium se termine en 5 ou 6 heures, en y allant calmement. En easy, comptez deux ou trois heures. C'est une valeure sûre du monde ludique mac qu'il ne faut manquer d'essayer.

Regardless, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault is a fantastic game that finally--finally--makes an attempt to portray war in a realistic, human way. In doing so, it ends up being much more fun the celebratory war games we usually get. I guess it's only fitting, therefore, that I post this review on the day in which we American's celebrate our country's freedom...from England?
