Medal of Honor: Allied Assault
In Medal of Honor: Allied Assault from Electronic Arts, players assume the role of Lt. Mike Powell, member of the famed 1st Ranger Battalion who gets recruited by the OSS and battles through over 20 levels that are based on historical military campaigns of World War II.

Set during the most trying years of the war, 1942-1945, Allied Assault gives players a sense of the courage it took to survive the landings at Normandy, the assault at Arzew, a rendezvous with the Resistance outside the village of St. Lo, and the push through the heavily defended border of Germany itself to take the bridge at Remagen.

Staying true to all the gameplay features that made Medal of Honor one of the most acclaimed and best-selling games launched in 1999, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault will build on the success of that game and add new player weapons, new interactive Allied vehicles such as Sherman tanks and M3 Half Tracks, smarter enemy AI, and the ability to call for artillery strikes.

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault Spearhead
More than 15 new WWII weapons feature in Spearhead, giving players an even bigger arsenal with which to lay waste to the filthy Nazis. The Russian PPSH-41 is in there, as is the British Sten Mark 2, and some American smoke grenades.

The original Allied Assault was well respected in terms of its multi-player aspect - there's still nothing better than a one-on-one Sniper fight in a devastated French town. Spearhead certainly doesn't let the side down, offering over 12 new multi-player levels as well as an enhanced multi-player mode, which gives players the opportunity to play as either British, American, German, or Soviet troops. Additionally, players have the ability to choose from a vast arsenal of authentic Soviet and British weapons.

As the old saying goes: 'If it 'ain't broke, don't fix it'. Allied Assault certainly wasn't broken, so an expansion pack like this can't possibly go wrong. If there's one niggle, then it might be the fact that a mere nine levels seems a little sparse but, apart from that, this is Medal of Honor. Extra Medal of Honor, in fact. Which is great.
