Apple’s Brad Cook has
posted a look at Aspyr Media’s recently released World War II-era action game, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault.
In this first-person 3D action game, you assume the role of Lt. Mike Powell of the 1st Ranger Battalion as you fight 20 levels based on real World War II-era military campaigns.
The title was developed by 2015, published for the PC by Electronic Arts, brought to the Mac by Westlake Interactive and published for the Mac by Aspyr. It’s won fans from critics and gamers who appreciate its gritty realism. “You’re in the heat of battle, not exactly sure what way to go. You listen to the people around you, some giving orders, others just plain scared,” said Aspyr president Michael Rogers. “Medal of Honor gives you a sense of the chaos and uncertainty that an average person must have felt during the real event.”
Additionally, Medal of Honor features multiplayer modes that let you pit your skills against PC or Mac users via the GameSpy online gaming service, noted Cook. “Like all of Aspyr’s games, Medal of Honor was built for both Mac OS X and Mac OS 9,” he said. Cook quotes Aspyr’s Rogers who said that “the subtle technical differences” really matter when it comes to playing Mac OS X.
Rogers added that Aspyr has plans to release OS X-only games this year — an interesting change for the company, which has previously suggested it would continue to support Mac OS 9 as long as the market would bear it.
