Medal of Honor: Infiltrator
Medal of Honor: Infiltrator is a handheld-exclusive entry in the Medal of Honor franchise. In this top-down shooter, you'll blast your way through over a dozen unique levels set in the violent battlefields of World War II. The Medal of Honor franchise is well-known for delivering some unforgettable adventures through the perils of war, and Infiltrator attempts to do that on a much smaller scale. Although limited by the capabilities of a handheld device, Infiltrator pulls off an action experience that many gamers will find surprisingly satisfying and fun to play. Even if you don't consider yourself the biggest Medal of Honor fan, there's enough straightforward, intense action to enjoy.
Main Game Features
- 15 level-long campaign mode
- Unlockable bonus modes
- Arcade-like action gameplay
Like the other titles in the Medal of Honor series, Medal of Honor: Infiltrator takes place in the 1940s during the second World War. Playing as Corporal Jake Murphy from the United States, you'll fight in five key missions against the Axis army. Your fight to defeat the enemy takes you to three different countries, including Africa, France, and Norway. Each mission comes with a brief text box that explains the current power balance along with your specific duties. Your effort to help win the war will see you storming beaches, sneaking through enemy camps, and stealing valuable intel. There’s not a ton of story content to get invested in, but it’s enough to keep you invested in the mission at hand.
Infiltrator is primarily played from a top-down, third-person perspective, with you advancing towards the top of the screen. Like other retro arcade shooters, your main goal is to eliminate all enemies on the screen while dodging a barrage of bullets. There are five main missions to complete, each with three individual levels packed with World War II action. Besides reaching the end of the level, there are additional objectives that you can complete to earn additional rewards. Some levels flip the perspective, giving you an on-rails shooter view as you defend vehicles and use stationary guns. This switch from the standard top-down view shakes up the experience and keeps things from getting stale.
Besides the main campaign mode, players can link up using a Nintendo Link Cable for multiplayer action, letting you bring a friend in on the action. If you successfully complete the game once, you'll unlock an extra Survival mode as well, which tests your shooting skills against an endless horde of enemy troops. If you're good enough to complete every objective in the main campaign, you'll also unlock the secret Max GI mode, which only the most able veterans can hope to accomplish. Despite being limited to a handheld system, Medal of Honor: Infiltrator provides tons of awesome arcade action.
While it might not tout the intense first-person perspective of the other Medal of Honor games, Medal of Honor: Infiltrator manages to produce an equally effective action experience. The game gives players everything they could want from a military shooter: action-packed gameplay, extra modes, and some pretty sweet weapons. The mixture of top-down and on-rails shooting keeps things interesting throughout the fifteen bite-sized levels, so you'll never get bored. If you're looking for a great action game to play in short sessions, Medal of Honor: Infiltrator is worth checking out.
