Dream works interactive and electronic arts have produced just such a master piece for the playstation. It s called medal of Honor. The premise is simple enough. You play As Jimmy Patterson a Young lieutenant with the office of strategic services the Agency that became the Cia. You Are dropped behind German lines the Day before a Day and must Complete a series of missions designed to damage the nazi War machine. If the Devil is in the details this is a devilishly Good game. For one thing the missions Are Superb. The programmers at dream works really sweated the details and it shows. Killing nazis is always a prime focus but they die in connection with crippling the German War machine destroying a giant rail gun sinking a Mammoth submarine blowing up fuel dumps rescuing downed spies blowing up enemy planes. However killing in t always the Best. Idea. You have to perfect the main Talent every spy must have sneak ing around. Some times you get to do it in stolen German uniforms other times in your civvies but creeping is a vital skill. Slip up to a Corner and peek around or crawl along a hedgerow then use your sniper Rifle or silenced pistol to dispatch the enemy before he sees you. Or take Over their machine gun nests and blast away. Now these Aren t stupid nazis by any Means. They hide too. They pursue you without mercy. They demand your identification papers and will sound the alarm at the first sign of trouble. Officers usually have to be killed since they Aren t As accepting of those forged documents As your average enlisted Man. They even throw Back hand grenades so be careful. This is a beautifully drawn game with Lovely country sides quaint towns and nicely detailed in the associated press door Environ ments. Enemies die with More drama than your average 1950s movie Cowboy twitching and Tum bling like Bug sprayed ants. Animation is solid and Between acts movies feature historic footage of world War ii. The sound is excellent. Grunted Ger Man phrases Are common artillery pounds and bullets whine off in the Dis Tance vehicles Clank and rumble attack dogs growl As they get set to leap at you. Control also gets an a plus with the elusive Patterson Able to crawl strafe and jump. Changing weapons is a Breeze and aiming is easy with the Call up crosshair letting you place your shots perfectly. Head shots Are preferred especially with the silenced pistol. If you have to Start blazing away your chances of being Dis covered multiply quickly. Medal of Honor s difficulty grows quickly so Don t expect to get through the game with ease. But the skills you learn in the first few chapters will stand you in Good Stead throughout and finishing the game is amazingly satisfying. I can t recommend medal of Honor highly enough. If you enjoy video games it s a must have. Medal of Honor is rated to for Ages 13 and up.
