Medal of Honor Allied Assault Spearhead. How's that for a mouthful? Our Chuck “SmokingCrater” Norton jumps from a C-47 into Normandy along with his combat camera and files this report from the frontlines.

Great review Chuck! I love this add-on. My only complaint it wasn't long enough! For $30, 4 more missions would have been perfect.

I really enjoyed this add-on. For me, just the paradrop into Normandy was worth the price of admission.

I also enjoyed the scripted bits. Yes, these might be frustrating if you'd saved your game at a point in the script loop where your ultimate demise was inevitable, but on the whole it worked well for me.

One thing I did find, however, is that the game is far more enjoyable, and playable, with the color depth set to 32-bit. At 16-bit color you can't see the AI snipers and that will drive you nuts.

Big thumbs up for this title from me, but then again, I don't get out much.

Well, to each their own, Herr Doug. It IS a fun game. But it just seemed a bit pricey for what it delivered. I guess its a question of taste, for sure. Have you (or anyone else) noticed that thing with the enfield's fire sound occasionally missing?

Thanks for the compliments, guys. Glad you enjoyed it!
