First I must say that the M.O.H. series has been a favorite of mine for quite some time now.Now year after year they somehow are able to spin us players an authintic experiance of war.Exept for M.O.H. rising sun,of course all have been nicely done and lucky enough for us,we have been presented with a fourth edition to the series we all love and charish,European Assault was the result.I don't know what to say about this game...lets talk about graphics.At a distance they do look wonderful but up close they seem to be blury,but not at all is that to put them down in all their gritty greatness.Me personally,I think that EA went an extra mile for authinticity,because the weapons shoot as if YOU were holding them,the vibration is just enough to make you feel in the game too.Next lets see,sound,yes I really do need to talk about that.Well its kinda like OK you running though the battlefield and you can hear the rumbles the crys,the explosions and the hardcore talk of your nearby allies.Last but certainly not least,I would like to discuss the enemy's AI.The enemys in your enviroment react to whatever the situation at hand is,for example a grenade is thrown so the AI actually runs,picks up the grenade,and throws it back to you kinda like a deadly game of catch!also if an enemy is penned down by fire he yell to his buddy to cover him while he moves out of harms way.All in all a wonderful game be sure to pick it up if you have the chance!

WWII the way it was meant to be played

Many WWII games have a lot of "secret agent" missions( i.e. going on solo missions , spying on top-secret enemy meetings, and popping off enemy soldiers left and right using a silenced pistol.) Not so with Medal of Honor European Assault.
Almost every level is a large-scale battle. From the war-torn cities of Russia to the blazing deserts of Africa, you will face non-stop battlefied action. One cool thing about the game is the secondary objectives( optional objectives that do not have to be completed). These may include destroying an artillery position, calling in air strikes, or eliminating certain enemy officers. Although these tasks are optional, completing them will give you rewards, such as extra revives(lives) or a better medal at the end of the mission.
You will also command a squad throughout the game. Using the + pad, you can order you squad to move forward. Your squad is a valuable resource during the game. Whether it be charging an enemy fortification or going into a building to check for enemies, your squad will always be a great help.
The Split-screen multiplayer is also fun. You may play as an Axis or Allied soldier and battle on courses similar to those on the single player game.
I have mentioned many of this games pro's, but there are still a few con's. The graphics are not extremely great, especially peoples faces(Speaking of faces, 2 different British officers have the exact same face). Another con is that the game seems fairly short( 11 levels).
All things considered, this is a great game. The all-out battlefield action and the special features( such as the secondary objectives) make it a extremely fun. After all, if I wanted to play a " secret agent game", i would rent 007, not a WWII game. "Medal of Honor: European Assault" is WWII, the way it was meant to be played.
