Description

Trivia

Beta version

The beta version of the game had much more graphic violence. An early trailer found as an extra feature in the VHS copy of the film Small Soldiers depicted enemy soldiers spurting out blood when shot and being blown apart into chunky pieces from grenades or bazookas (with appropriate amounts of blood and gore).

German index

On April 29, 2000, Medal of Honor was put on the infamous German index by the BPjS. For more information about what this means and to see a list of games sharing the same fate, take a look here: BPjS/BPjM indexed games.
