Medal of Honor is a FPP World War II film shootout, created exclusively for PS1 console. DreamWorks Interactive, founded in 1995 by Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg as a joint venture of Microsoft and DreamWorks Pictures, is responsible for the creation of the game.
The story told in the game was created in cooperation with the famous director and producer Steven Spielberg. In Medal of Honor we play the role of Lieutenant Jimmy Patterson - former pilot of the C-47 transporter, recruited for cooperation by OSS (the direct predecessor of today's CIA). The action of the game takes place in the final period of the Second World War (mid 1944 to mid 1945), and the aim of the game is to perform various tasks, such as destroying the position of the enemy while eliminating the soldiers who manned them.
Compared to most of today's dynamic FPP shooters, Medal of Honor The game is slightly more tactical in its approach to gameplay. Although during the game there is of course no shortage of opportunities for an open exchange of fire with enemies, it is often better to use various tactical manoeuvres and skillful use of terrain guards. Some of the tasks before us even require a sneaky approach and silent creeping into enemy positions. A wide arsenal of historical and meticulously recovered weapons from the Second World War, from guns and rifles (e.g. Colt 1911A, M1 Garand, M1903/A5 Springfield, M1A1 Thompson, Browning Automatic or Winchester Model 12) to grenades, explosives and baseball launchers, is helpful in dealing with the enemy's troops. It is also possible to use some Nazi weapons (e.g. Walther P38 and MP40).
The basic mode of the Medal of Honor is a seven-missioned one-player fictional campaign, during which we visit various countries participating in World War II, such as France, Germany and Norway. In addition, the game offers the opportunity to play in deathmatch mode on a split screen, where players compete against each other on several different maps.
Fully three-dimensional binding of Medal of Honor on PS1 platform uses the full capabilities of Sony console, so you can watch a suggestive, yet cinematic image of war on the screen. The strong point of the title is the soundtrack by Michael Giacchino, composer of film music, who previously worked with Disney Interactive and DreamWorks Interactive.
