    Frontline takes its opening scene directly out of Saving Private Ryan and features numerous callbacks to the movie throughout. In the first-person shooter, you fight through various levels set throughout World War II using a range of unique weaponry from the era. EA makes Patterson the star of the D-Day level in an attempt to streamline the plot and reduce any confusion the player might have from switching main characters. 

    Did you know: The soundtrack for Frontline spans 70 minutes and was written by an 80-piece orchestra. Accompanied by a full chorus, it was the most ambitious score to a Medal of Honor game to date.

    There are four areas you play in as Lt. William Holt as you're sent to Belgium, the Soviet Union, North Africa, and France as you complete missions and obtain documents.

In the event you miss one or two of them, you only get a silver or bronze medallion, respectively.
