IMG Previews Medal of Honor: Allied Assault

Inside Mac Games has posted a detailed preview by Andy Largent of Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, the first-person game of tactical combat during Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of Normandy in the Second World War. Here's a brief excerpt:
I have to say there have been at least two dramatic episodes in Medal of Honor that changed the way I thought about the game. The first was playing through a shell of a town with maybe three or four companions as backup. After making it through this area of intense gunfighting, amazingly accurate snipers, and trying to help keep my fellows alive (which was very similar to the final scene in "Saving Private Ryan"), I actually needed a break to relax and take a little breather. For the full text of our preview and a gallery of screen shots, follow the link below. Medal of Honor: Allied Assault was ported to the Mac by Westlake Interactive and is coming soon from Aspyr Media.

The Normandy beach scene only solidified this feeling. As you work your way up the beach and see the other Allieds doing the same with you, I gained a true sense of pride and accomplishment upon reaching the other side. Of course, that was only the beginning, but the pacing of the whole level was excellent. This could be about as realistic as I'd ever want a game to feel. I'm positive I don't want any more immersion into a war than this.
