    European Assault is based on a new guy, Lieutenant William Holt. He's a little more intense than Jimmy Patterson.

    The basics of it are this. Lt. Holt spends most of the war chasing the same guy, a German general named Von Schrader who has been developing a 'dirty bomb' to wipe out (I presume) Allied cities. You follow the trail from 1942 to 1945, everywhere it takes you.

    You start as an American observer with the OSS during the British Commando raid on St. Naizaire (Operation Chariot, the mission to destroy porty facilities there and deny its use to the German battleship Tirpitz). While there, you begin uncovering a few things about Von Schrader and his dirty bomb. You later serve with the Desert Rats in North Africa, Russian partisans in Stalingrad, and finally with American forces during the Bulge.

    Along the way, while capturing journals of various German officers, you begin to piece together what the bomb is and what it can do. In the meantime, there are other German officers to kill, and other secret weapons to inhibit.

    One of the missions is to rescue Manon Batiste, who was the character we played in Medal of Honor Underground, and also served with Lt. Patterson in the original game, and with Lt. Powell in Allied Assault. She's being held by an SS interrogator, and you have to bust her out. This has nothing to do with Von Schrader or his dirty bomb. I took note that it wasn't Patterson or Powell who were assigned to lead the mission to resuce our French minx, so I am firmly of the opinion that it will be Holt who gets her in the sack. Patterson always a goody two-shoes.

    I like the game. It's kinda short, but worth it, especially since it's been out a while and isn't that expensive. It is also the first MOH game to use the recent concept of aiming using the iron sights (which helped make the Call of Duty and Brothers in Arms games so cool) rather than a crosshair icon on the screen. Oh, there is cheese in the game (wait til you see the adrenaline meter), but it makes a good edition to the series.

    As far as a sequel to Rising Sun, you got me. I liked it a little more than most people. Sgt Joe Griffin, USMC, defend the USS California, the Philippines, serves in a special unit in Guadalcanal (Marine Raiders?) and is then recruited by the OSS where he tries to stop a rogue Japanese Naval officer named Shima from using plundered gold from occupied countries in Asia to pay off a renegade Russian general who will assassinate Stalin and create an alliance between the Japanese, the Germans, and the Russians. Of course, this can't happen.

    The ending of the game (a little ambiguous for my tastes) leaves not only room for a sequel, but downright says that the story is not over. I heard rumors, but not much else. I heard that you continue to play Joe Griffin, now on a mission to find the Japanese prison camp holding his brother and break him out. I heard another that states that you play his brother, who breaks out and fights with the Philippine resistance.

    It looks like neither will happen. Maybe EA games hoped to correct the deficiencies of Rising Sun with a sequel, or maybe enough time has passed that people are forgetting (right...) and they are hoping to put the whole Rising Sun thing behind them, and they hope with European Assault and the upcoming Airborne will reestablish the MOH series as the leader in World War II fps games.

    Time will tell. MOH has solid competition these days. I hear a great many more people talking about what they want in a Call of Duty or Brothers in Arms game than the next Medal of Honor. Maybe people got tired of playing solitary OSS heroes, and like the new games where you play a grunt.

    Who knows?
    Disappointing. I really got hooked on that game and was looking forward to meeting up with the Jap general again.

    Havent got European Assault yet,Someday perhaps.

    Here's a question I dont know if it's been touched on yet,Is there any of these WW2 first person shooters where you can be a German or Japanese soldier?

      If you have Xbox Live, you can play German units against other online players on Brothers In Arms.

            Good ol' Medal of Honour! I have Medal of Honour:Allied Assault, Spearhead and Breakthrough. For me it was the game that started it all. If anyone bumps into me online, I'm [5ACG]horatio_nelson! That's right, I still fight under the extinct 5th ACG Battalion, ACG's gaming clan, as a proud Sergeant in the admin corps. Makes me so proud.... Anyways...MOH:AA=excellent game!!!

              There's Battlefield 1942 for the PC but it doesn't look like you have one by the look of your list. The two expansions for the BF1942 are Road to Rome and Secret Weapons of WWII and they let you play the French Free Forces, Italians (for RTR only) as well as the U.S, British, Germans, Soviets, and Japs.

                There is supposed to be a new MOH in the works where you play a paratrooper.The gimmick is that you can drop anywhere into the combat zone that you feel like.

                I've always been partial to the first two games in the series.After that they kind of took a turn to fantasy land in some areas.I mean come on gaurds in platemail armor that i need to empty a whole clip from my machinegun into to bring them down.

                Their not bad games,but they seem to rely more and more on gimmicks then originality,with each passing title.

                  EA games used to like making WWII games, and did a good job at it. Now they want everything in your wallet, and thats it, they don't care anymore. Accauly, for the first time ever, a member from EA has come into tmt, Modding Theater, a place for modding games, and asked some of us what they would like in a WWII game, this is a first and I am accualy happy with this, It would be nice to mention something, then see it in game in the future.

                    I know you guys are not talking about this at the moment ,but what is your favorite multiplayer level on European Assualt. I like for the motherland. Just get a russian and get behind the center sandbag pile on the allied hill. Your set for the rest of the game just watch out for snipers.

                    Any of you have a favorite map and a good strategy for it?
