BLACK is a game Charlton Heston and the NRA would be proud to sponsor. That's because BLACK is all about guns; big guns, little guns, and the devastation they create when you empty round after round into the surrounding environment. The inspiration for...

BLACK is the kind of gun opera you'd expect from director John Woo, starring Chow Yun Fat. It's explosive both in its technical presentation and gameplay, but it's a very short experience. Brevity is a tough $40 pill to swallow, but from the opening...

Hype is an interesting tool, it can completely derail a game long before it even hits store shelves. Past victims include, but are not limited to, Fable, Halo 2, and...

Black - PS2 review at Thunderbolt Games


Imagine a First-Person Shooter from the makers of Burnout. Imagine it to be a cross between the high-octane action of their famous racer, the (slightly contrived) plot of 24 and more spent bullets and explosions than your average Steven Seagal box set....

My faith in the FPS genre was, to be quite honest, dying. Far Cry: Instincts was rather disappointing, and King Kong wasn't mind-blowing either. Criterion, the makers of the ever awesome Burnout series, have decided to do something different, yet...

Black (PS2) Review


The FPS world on the PS2 has always been in a bit of need for a solid title. With heavy reliance on titles like SOCOM the solid offerings for the console were bleak, until now.

Black is indeed an intense game, filled with pleanty of options to play through in each difficulty, gamers get quite a bit of time to explore levels without time limits and have multiple methods for attack approach in quite a few of the levels. Of...

Criterion has stepped out of the Burnout limelight to deliver a solid, but short, FPS.

BLACK is a fairly short shooter that will take even average gamers 5 to 6 hours to beat, which means less for veterans of the genre. It is very entertaining throughout, but there are only so many times you want to relive the same levels, if only to see...

Black Review for the PS2


Shooting blanks.

Awesome engine; Terrific graphics on both platforms; Some spectacular firefights

Against mannequins; Who have a hard time dying; Absurdly short and linear; No multiplayer? No other modes

It's just a shame that such high production values weren't extended to the overall game design. Though a graphical marvel, Black is too brief, too straight and too lacking to be considered much more than a cool tech-demo, and the absence of multiplayer...

Black - ps2


While only eight levels long, each one is memorable, well designed, and take a good chunk of time to play through. A couple of the levels clock in at just under an hour to navigate, and each has a ton of destructible objects littered throughout. In...

If you're anything like me then you really like to blow things up. You're the type of gamer that can't get enough of first person shooters and at some point in your experience you have probably tried to write something with bullet holes on the wall. I...

For fans of first person shooters that are just looking to blow something up Black is a godsend. The action is so over-the-top you'll get a nosebleed and the sense of immersion is amazing if you let yourself get swept away. Unfortunately the lack of...

Product Specifications

Medal of Honor European Assault is the latest video game from EA's acclaimed Medal of Honor franchise, which has been credited with pioneering the WWII first-person shooter genre when it debuted in 1999. Against all odds, the leadership choices you make before and during the heat of battle will define your legacy as a hero in this highly anticipated addition to the franchise. In Medal of Honor European Assault, the story line is the star. Europe 1942. These are desperate hours for Allied forces as the Nazi war machine rages across a devastated European landscape. You are US Army Lieutenant William Holt, hand-picked by William "Wild Bill" Donovan to be the first field agent of the newly formed Office of Strategic Services-the OSS. Medal of Honor European Assault makes you the driving force in the struggle to liberate Europe. As with the original Medal of Honor, producers sought counsel from numerous expert sources to make certain the game is historically accurate and as realistic as possible. The EA Los Angeles development team continues to work closely with the Congressional Medal of Honor Society to ensure that Medal of Honor European Assault reflects the ideals and integrity of the prestigious Medal of Honor. In addition, Capt. Dale Dye, who served as Military Technical Advisor on the previous titles in the Medal of Honor franchise, continues his efforts with the Medal of Honor European Assault to ensure the authenticity of the experience.
