Macgamer Reviews Spearhead
10:20 AM | Alvaro Radigales | Comment on this story

Mac gaming news resource MacGamer recently posted a five-page review of Medal of Honor: Spearhead, the expansion pack for Electronic Arts' highly-acclaimed WWII-themed blockbuster, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault. During this exhaustive analysis, MacGamer covers nearly every aspect of the title, from the most evident features and glitches of the graphics engine to the depth and development of the single-player storyline.

Here's a snip from the review, in which a conclusion of the game's strongest and weakest points is provided:

What the Mac market has here is a potentially amazing game with a terrific multiplayer mode and an amazing game engine that needs to have its single player system completely reworked. The AI code simply slaughters the game and if the game can hold itself to box specs and run well in multiplayer mode, there's no reason why it can't run almost or equally well in single player mode.

Buy this for the multiplayer mode and the game it could become under Apple's rumored new hardware, not for the failed single player mode under older and current hardware. Perhaps a patch can fix these problems or allow for better use of Apple's current dual-processor hardware, but until that point, you can lead a horse to water, but getting it to do the backstroke is going to take some talent...

Medal of Honor: Spearhead was ported to the Macintosh platform by Westlake Interactive and is published by Aspyr Media. A multiplayer demo is available at our sister site MacGameFiles for those wanting a more hands-on impression.

Also, those convinced of the potential of this expansion pack by either the full MacGamer review or the demo can order their copy at the Inside Mac Games store. Keep in mind though that, as with any other expansion pack, the original title, Allied Assault, is required.
