From the Manufacturer: Medal of Honor Frontline marks the debut of the best-selling and award-winning Medal of Honor franchise on the Microsoft Xboxª. In Frontline, you go behind enemy lines as Lt. Jimmy Patterson. Your missions range from the D-Day assault on Omaha Beach, to surveilance of your Nazi nemesis aboard and atop a speeding armored train, to the epic battle for control of Nijmegen Bridge, a strategic choke point in the Allied drive into the heart of Nazi Germany. It all culminates in a top-secret, high-risk mission to steal the HO-IX flying wing, an experimental Nazi jet fighter so powerful it could turn the tide of World War II.
Best game I ever played, November 14, 2002
Reviewer: anrx4you from Santa Rosa, CA. United States
If I could have just one game for the XBOX, this would be the one! I have been anticipating the release for over a month. I was setting myself up for a big disappointment until I switched on the system replaced the HALO disc with Medal of Honor, and tuned out the rest of the world for the evening.
Holy Smokes! This game had me taken from the initial boot to the wee hours of the next morning (on a worknight mind you). The first 10 minutes of gameplay had my anxiety high and stomach queezy as though I was really there. I give any developer kudos for giving the player the sensation and anticipation any soldier would have gone through.
I've been following WWII history for a few years now, and the game appeared true to history. Even the smallest attention to detail was tended to. The only and very minor aspect that bothered me is that the soldiers had full thick goa-tees (I don't believe any branch of the military [since the early 1900's]allowed them). Again, it is only something that I notice. I wasn't buying a documentary on WWII. I still give it a strong 5 stars.
If you don't buy the game, at least make a point to play it. It is the best money I've spent for any game on any system. I've served in the military however, so I may be biased for the game. The ratings are extremely high, so I know I'm not the only one who favors Medal of Honor.

It's no HALO, November 12, 2002
Reviewer: kristenhcrockett from California
Major complaints are no system link play (multiplayer for only 4), nor can you play the single player mode with more than 1 player (unlink HALO where you can play with two people at once). I'm not that far into the single player game but I don't like that I have to meet a bunch of small objectives, it should be more free flowing like Battlefield 1942 on the PC.
Overall the graphics are great, and I did play multiplayer with two other friends and it's pretty good, but if you could play via system link with 8 or 16 it would be awesome. I would have give it 4.5 stars if it had the system link capability
