Good Game: Medal of Honor (PS)

A Good Game a day for the rest of time perhaps?

Today it’s Medal of Honor a 1999 first-person shooter video game, developed by DreamWorks Interactive and published by Electronic Arts for the PlayStation (PS). It is the first instalment in the Medal of Honor video game series. The story was created by film director and producer Steven Spielberg.

In Medal of Honor, the player takes the role of the fictional Lieutenant Jimmy Patterson, a former C-47 Skytrain pilot in the Air Transport Command who was later recruited to the OSS. The game takes place near the end of World War II. The goal of the game is to complete objectives, such as destroying enemy positions, and kill enemy German forces in the process.

The game also includes a split screen deathmatch mode, pitting two players against each other in various maps. Players can also unlock several secret characters after completing the game or through cheat codes, from notable historical figures such as Filipino patriot José Rizal, playwright William Shakespeare and even outlandish characters such as a German Shepherd dog and a Velociraptor with a The Lost World: Jurassic Park design.

Watch the video I made below showing about the first 25 minutes of the game.
