...Medal of Honor: Allied assault and also wasn't a total trainwreck. At least thats what it feels like. Welcome to the worst game of the century, well until the next call of duty.
So you play or rather you watch a 2-3 hour movie depending on how fast you push buttons as Sam Worthington. You get to enjoy him screaming in the worst sounding way possible. It is so incredibly grating, it takes me right out of the game. I'm fighting nazis, and koreans, and russians while they all yell and yet Sam's voice is the only one that drives me crazy.
Anyway you go through highly accurate (historically) covert ops missions of the CIA. Now I'm a former special ops soldier so I am an expert on this. Like sending actor Ice cube to 1961 cuba to kill Castro (Ice cube being born eight years after this being quite a feat). Or how about stopping a russian invasion of D.C. and then like a nuke or something going off in space and then the US army retakes the white house? Yeah I remember all of those, I was there. Oh? You don't? Well thats because they were black ops! Boom.
I haven't played multiplayer because my SPEC OPS bud told me it was completely unrealistic. He said there were "magic" abilities that you can choose to play the reload animation a second faster or hack the game to run constantly. I didn't join the -REDACTED- .I.A. to play "baby's first shoot'em up". But of course every frat boy and 12 year old bought this masterpiece and they'll hail it as the second coming of video game savior until the next "halo" or "cod" or "terrible generic shooter with terrorists or aliens...maybe both"
