Head back behind enemy lines with Lt. Jimmy Patterson in Medal of Honor
Frontline. In this installment of the smash-hit Medal of Honor series,
Lt. Patterson returns and must use the confusion of the real-world offensive
Operation Market Garden to infiltrate the German frontline and steal
the HO-IX flying wing, an experimental Nazi weapon so powerful that
it could turn the tide of World War II.
In keeping with the strengths of the Medal of Honor series, Frontline
will put gamers in control of Lt. Jimmy Patterson as he carries out
his critical missions in full 3D. Players will take Lt. Patterson on
20 crucial assignments ranging from the assault on Omaha Beach, tracking
your Nazi nemesis aboard and atop his speeding armored train, the epic
battle for control of the Nijmegen Bridge, made famous in the film A
Bridge Too Far.
Players will take on five missions, each consisting of at least three
individual levels, all of which add up to one complete storyline. To
help him succeed in his assignment, Lt. Patterson will have the assistance
of a small squad of soldiers and a slew of new weapons, ranging from
the Springfield Sniper Riffle, Panzerschreck rocket launcher, MG42 mounted
machine gun-to the return of the ever-popular Browning Automatic Rifle
(B.A.R.) Patterson's friends and foes will all have much improved AIs,
making for tense and heated large-scale battles, with friends, foes,
and even civilians all on screen at any given moment.
EALA continues to work closely with the Congressional Medal of Honor
Society to make sure Medal of Honor Frontline reflects the ideals and
integrity of the prestigious Congressional Medal of Honor. The team
also consulted with Russ Lee, the Smithsonian Institution's expert on
the HO-IX, and Capt. Dale Dye, technical consultant for the original
Medal of Honor, to insure the authenticity of the game.
Medal of Honor Frontline marks the first appearance of the Medal of
Honor franchise on the PlayStation 2. Lt. Patterson's latest adventure
will make full use of advanced lighting and architecture capabilities,
special effects, and realistic sound to bring World War II to life once
more. A new original score from the award-winning Michael Giacchino
and sound effects by the AIAS award winning design team will make sure
the experience is a memorable one.
