I can’t believe how far this game has come since its preview last month. It was great then, and incredible now. Once again, EA has done wonders with the ambient sound and event triggered music to lend a strong cinematic quality without sacrificing gameplay. The manual aim is one of the smoothest I’ve seen on the PlayStation, making head shots a breeze. The guns are incredibly cool. Just about every weapon in the game has some advantage over the others. For instance, pistols are great for head shots, while machine guns are less accurate, but much more effective at mowing down multiple enemies at close range. You will rarely find yourself putting a gun away and then not using it for the rest of a mission. I did find myself occasionally getting snagged on something invisible in the environments, but for the most part, gameplay is very smooth. Get this game.
If you liked the first Medal of Honor, you will surely enjoy the MOH Underground. Overall, this game rocks and will get your adrenaline pumping. Since, I used to sleep in history class, I found it to be a cool story. It gives you a sense of realism and makes you appreciate the fact that you were not exposed to the hells of WWII. On the flip side, the game could use some gore, after all, war is a bloody sport. If you're not a fan of war / 1st person shooter type games, I wouldn't recommend this, you can get bored or disoriented pretty quickly. All in all, it's a cool game.

In regard to the score, Medal of Honor Underground is actually a better game than its predecessor, but in light of the evolution of first-person shooters and the first title's strong technical features and originality, this lower score reflects the game more accurately in November 2000.
All in all, though, Medal of Honor: Underground is a worthy sequel – a game that compels you to finish it. This series is slowly but surely redefining the first-person shooter, and it’s hard to believe it’s exclusively on PlayStation. Check it out to see why, as I lamely stated in the review I did for its predecessor, history lessons can be fun after all.
PSX Extreme (Dec 08, 2000)
In the end Medal of Honor: Underground is a finely tuned videogame that holds up to its older brethren Medal of Honor. Underground excels over the first in more ways than one, the visuals have been improved over the first, the body detail is more solid and well built over last years game, the special effects have also been brightened up and the game's interactive environments are better than ever. The gameplay is even more stealth and action than it was before, you will have a large arsenal of weapons and over 20 missions to go through. And on top of that the soundtrack is some of the best in an action game to date. Make sure you give Medal of Honor: Underground a look, it is definitely one of the best FPS titles that have been released on the PSOne.

If you want a quality FPS on the PSX, the Medal of Honor games are pretty much your onlny choice. Quake 2 is only decent and gets old quick. medal of Honor 2 should be a $20 game now, and Medal of Honor 1 should be even cheaper, I recoomend both.
Mega Fun (Nov, 2000)
Action-Fans, aufgemerkt! Mit Medal of Honor Underground erscheint ein Spitzentitel dieses Spiel-Genres. Durch die sehr gelungene Atmosphäre und Spielbarkeit ist eine lange Motivation garantiert. Ferner besitzt Medal of Honor Underground für einen Ego-Shooter ein auffallend hohes Maß an Abwechslung und beweist einmal mehr die Kreativität des Dreamworks-Teams. Bei aller Begeisterung sei allerdings auch erwähnt, dass es sich bei diesem Produkt um ein brutales Kriegsspiel handelt. Grundvoraussetzung für Zocker ist ein Alter von 18 Jahren und die Fähigkeit zu abstrahieren. Definitiv sollten Kinder und Jugendliche nicht mit Spielen dieser Art konfrontiert werden!

Medal of Honor Underground hat eigentlich alles, was einen potentiellen Hit ausmacht: Ansprechende Grafik, schönes Missionsdesign, eingängige Steuerung und einen hervorragenden Sound. Nur - das hatte der erste Teil auch schon zu bieten. Zwar ist es lobenswert, dass die Designer keine Verschlimmbesserungen eingebracht haben, aber fehlen hier irgendwie die Innovationen, die Teil 1 zum Klassiker machten. Trotzdem: ein Spiel, das auf jeden Fall sein Geld wert ist, wenn man auch nur ein bisschen Spaß an Action hat.
Video Games (Nov, 2000)
Wow – eine so dichte Atmosphäre habe ich selten erlebt. Mag daran liegen, dass für mich wie für Christian ein „reales“ Szenario weit spannender als der Kampf gegen Aliens vom Planeten Grzyplk kommt. Das Missionsdesign und die liebevolle Präsentation sind vom allerfeinsten – da sehe ich auch ohne Probleme über das systembedingte, PlayStation-typische Wabern einiger Wände hinweg. Und über die schräge Tatsache, dass manche Nazis vom nächtlichen Lauschen am Volksempfänger wohl einen Hörschaden bekommen haben – sie reagieren nicht immer auf Schussgeräusche, die nur wenige Meter entfernt erklingen. Einer der PS1-Referenztitel, den ihr haben solltet.
Power Unlimited (Dec, 2000)
In Medal of Honor: Underground worden een boel frustrerende fouten uit het eerste deel weggewerkt. Als je alle fancy poespas wegdenkt dan is deze game niet meer dan een middelmatige shooter maar het is juist die fancy poespas die het zo leuk maakt.
PSM (Dec, 2000)
Variety is another element that has made the series strong. The added missions are fun to play, and as in the first game, you'll find yourself doing everything from sniping, to straight combat, to espionage. While this sequel isn't perfect, it's variety and depth will keep you fighting the good fight for a long time.
Gamekult (Dec 26, 2000)
Medal of Honor : Resistance est une merveille de réalisation sur PlayStation. Orchestré de main de maître tel un opéra du 7ème art, le scénario nous prend et nous entraîne dans une aventure réaliste et variée qui mériterait de ne jamais s'arrêter. De multiples missions dans des contrées diverses, des ennemis intelligents et imprévisibles, un contexte soigné, tous les ingrédients sont présents pour faire de ce jeu un des tous meilleurs shooter à la première personne paru sur cette console (voire sur toutes les consoles). La seule déception est de le finir. Vivement la suite sur PlayStation 2.

Une bonne suite qui garde toute la fraîcheur du premier épisode. Quake-like tout à fait honorable, il offre en plus un gameplay renouvelé dans une réalisation toujours aussi haut de gamme.
GameSpot (Nov 03, 2000)
The vast majority of gamers are under 30 years old, and so they never had to bear the full brunt of such a massive conflict as World War II. Like Medal of Honor before it, Underground provides these younger generations with a look back at a period of history that, although immeasurably bloody, also deserves attention. Though nobody will realistically write a thesis on German attrition after playing the game, it does stir up interest in World War II and the issues that it involved. At the same time, it's one of the better first-person shooters available on a console, and as such, fans of that genre and history buffs alike owe it to themselves to give it a shot.
Game Revolution (Nov, 2000)
There are several new features in Underground. You'll have the chance to work with a CPU controlled buddy, basically a digital comrade that you keep safe and help out. Not new to the genre, but it still works well. Moving vehicles have been added, which means you can fight enemies like giant tanks. Then there's the disguise element. You'll nab a camera, after which you can go prancing about pretending to be a journalist. If you stop to take a photo of German soldier, he'll even pose for you. Pull out a gun, though, and he''ll shoot you dead. Nice!
Gameplanet (Jan 12, 2001)
The visuals of MOH2 are really no different from the first game, but this isn't a bad thing in the least. Many of your missions will happen at night, which not only keeps the frame rate up (because of the limited visibility) but also adds tension as you creep around each corner. The enemy soldiers boast some excellent animation, especially when crawling along the ground wounded, waiting to be finished off (sadistic people will have a ball with this game). Sound effects are also an important facet to the game, and add to the tension ten-fold. The atmospheric sounds are blended so well with the in-game sound effects that sometimes you could swear there was a troop of marching Germans just around the corner, causing you skulk even more carefully when poking your head into places where it could very likely be shot off.
Medal of Honor: Underground är inte ett toppspel som kräver sin plats i spelhyllan, men det är ändå ett spel jag vill att ni tittar närmare på om ni gillar genren. Jag har haft många underhållande timmar med spelet och det lär ni säkert också få.
