Nothing captures the intensity of D-Day more than this game

Medal Of Honour

Today is D-Day and we look at the opening level of Medal of Honour Allied Assault which perfectly conveys the intense Normandy beach landings.

Today is the 70th anniversary of D-Day where allied soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy to begin the mammoth task of taking back and freeing Europe.

Its hard for us to imagine the intensity, fear and steadfast bravery of that day for those that came off the landing craft, however one game that came out did its best to emulate this pivotal moment in history and that game was Medal of Honour Allied Assault.

This game is famous for having one of the most awe inspiring opening levels of any game that came before it. Sure, this are now more cinematic and action packed openings on today's games but these are in a sci-fi or fictitious setting, whereas, the Medal of Honour opening level is based on fact and this is what for many drove home what those soldiers went through.
