"Medal of Honor: Frontline is one of those games that will surprise PlayStation 2 owners by dazzling them with terrific gameplay, visual flair, and some of the best sound yet heard on Sony's console. Indeed, this World War II-themed first-person shooter is on the same level as the recently released and highly acclaimed Medal of Honor: Allied Assault for the PC, an outstanding game in its own right. Frontline takes the same cinematic approach that Allied Assault did, with a heavy emphasis on scripted events throughout its epic missions. While Frontline does have a few frustrating points, the game is more than good enough to outshine any shortcomings that it might have. Simply put, it's one of the best first-person shooter experiences available on a console. "
"Extras or no, Medal of Honor Frontline is an excellent game. Broken down into several facets, the game still shines on all fronts. It's visually impressive and aurally incredible, and it essentially is a superb entry in the shooter genre. The attention to historical details further augments the experience, though those who consider themselves fans of shooters would do well to add this game to their collection. Even gamers who harbor only a passing interest in this style of game will probably find it worth their money. In short, Medal of Honor Frontline is a shooter that can stand toe-to-toe with the best the genre has to offer." -- www.gamespot.com 9.0/10 "superb".
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 15 crucial assignments ranging from destroying a German Naval base, rescuing a captured OSS operative from a Nazi held Dutch manor house, stowing away above and aboard a speeding Nazi armored train, to disarming the undercarriage of 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 Liberator Pistol, Panzerschreck, MG42 mounted machine gun"to the return of the ever-popular 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.

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.
