A completely new game from the ground up, Medal of Honour Frontline on the PS2 puts the player in the shoes of Lt. Jimmy Patterson, in a quest to infiltrate the German frontline and steal the HO-IX flying wing. An experimental weapon developed by the Nazis, the HO-IX was so powerful that it could have turned the tide of World War II.

With the assistance of Hollywood veteran Capt. Dale Dye, assigned to certify the authenticity of the game, the developers have delivered in Frontline a multitude of scenarios based on popular situations throughout WWII. A wide variety of gameplay premises are offered throughout the levels with everything from stealth killing, sabotage, death-defying runs and, of course, the famous storming of Omaha Beach required of the player.

The overall essence of the War has been very faithfully recreated in Frontline, with extremely detailed characters and scenery complimented by shockingly-realistic sound effects. Great smoke and dust effects and a camera that shakes along with the action add to the equation, resulting in a WWII console game currently unrivalled for authenticity.

As with Medal of Honour Allied Assault on the PC, Frontline is to games what Saving Private Ryan is to films: It’s an atmospheric, faithful recreation of life in the trenches.
