Black (PlayStation 2)


Black is an explosion-filled first-person shooter from Criterion Games, the company responsible for bringing explosions to driving games with the Burnout series. Like the Burnout games, Black packs in a lot of firepower. It seems like something's...

Medal of Honor: European Assault (PlayStation 2)


The game's wide-open levels actually encourage players to explore, giving the series a fresh feel compared to past games. Unfortunately, a very brief campaign and no online multiplayer means the fun doesn't last long.

Following up on last year's Medal of Honor games, Pacific Assault and Rising Sun, Electronic Arts has chosen to bring the series back to the European theater of war with Medal of Honor: European Assault. The game's wide-open levels actually encourage...

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...

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.
