Indeed, the originality of this game lies in its will to produce a historical epic realistic in all points of view. The player is in the shoes of US lieutenant Mike Powell, who has to carry out various sabotage or intelligence missions behind the enemy lines. From North Africa in 1942 to Norway in 1943, the game mainly allowed to land at Omaha Beach, June 6, 1944. A difficult mission that is full of details (like this passage where the hero crosses doctors treating the wounded On the beach), which shows some of the difficulties encountered by the American soldiers in Omaha on D-Day.

Overall, the game relies more on the realism of the fights than on the historical realism: with a very lively atmosphere, reinforced by a very successful music worthy of the music of film of the Second World War, the player is confronted with full force with the battles of WW2, facing a highly developed artificial intelligence. Indeed, the German soldiers of the game “Medal of Honor: allied assault” take cover, try to get around you, and only let themselves be killed after selling their skin dearly…
