The Medal of Honor series is one of the most revered FPSs ever to grace PS one and PS2. Most recently, Medal of Honour Frontline on PS2 managed to create a stunning and sometimes chilling sensation of actually being part of the Allied invasion of occupied France. The opening beach landing level will go down in the annals of gaming history as one of the most absorbing and darkly beautiful FPS sequences ever. Now the series shifts its attention from the now cooling war in Europe to the still blazing conflict in the Pacific as you face the might of the Imperial Japanese forces.
As Marine Corporal Joseph Griffin you must face some of the most gruelling battles of the latter stages of WWII. Once you have struggled through the devastation of the attack on Pearl Harbor, you are required to destroy the bridge over the River Kwai, perform a midnight raid on Guadalcanal and coming face to face with the mighty Colonel Shima. In all, 10 levels of humid horror lay ahead but you are well-equipped for the challenges they throw at you, with your Thompson SMG, rifle, pistol and grenades as your standard kit, along with sniper rifles and mounted heavy machine guns padding out your arsenal. To further help you through your missions you can team up with a comrade and fight the Nippon nasties in the all-new split-screen Co-op mode. You can even take the action online via a Network Adaptor and face the perils of the Pacific across 10 multiplayer levels for up to four players. The war is far from over.
- 10 authentically detailed levels for solo or co-op play and 10 multiplayer maps for online play
- Over 20 WWII weapons
- Multiple paths through the levels mean your tactics play a key role
- Team up with British forces and the legendary Burmese Flying Tigers
