Plot

The player takes the role of various heroes from the Medal of Honor series. There are three different campaigns, each with its own hero that spearheads squads to complete objectives. These heroes are: Lieutenant Jimmy Patterson, who was the star of the original Medal of Honor and Medal of Honor: Frontline, Sergeant John Baker from Medal of Honor: Allied Assault - Breakthrough, and Lt. William Holt from Medal of Honor: European Assault.[3] The campaigns take place in Italy, Holland, and in Belgium.

After the player beats the Battle of the Bulge in Belgium, they are treated to the end cinematic. It shows that Patterson proposed to Manon, but the mission briefer adds that a response has not been reported yet. The ending to Medal of Honor: Rising Sun is also revealed. Joseph Griffin, main character of Rising Sun, was planning POW rescue raids, which means that he rescued his brother.

Gameplay

Objectives include sabotage, infiltration, capturing certain objectives. Most missions in each campaign include the player blowing something up, killing a certain number of enemies, stealing enemy intel, and then sometimes returning to a certain location to escape. There are three different levels to be attained in each level, bronze, silver and gold. To score bronze the player has to complete all primary objectives. To score silver he must complete the primary and secondary objectives. Gold is the same as silver but the player must have high accuracy and kills. Obtaining these different levels increases the player's rank and helps the player complete the game by 100%. As the player progresses in the game he can unlock skins to use in multiplayer and skirmish mode.

Online

Heroes features an online multiplayer that allows for 32 players in a match. It also lets the player access real weapons. These include the M1 Garand, Thompson submachine gun, M1911 pistol, and bazooka. Gameplay modes include Deathmatch, Infiltration, Demolition, Hold the Line, Battlelines, and Domination. Unlike most other online multiplayer games, no points are awarded even if the player successfully brings an enemy flag back to the base and scores. The game also has a ranking system that gives the player's rank by his kill-death ratio. They also have a top 100 leaderboard and the ranking system goes to 10,000-1. The online servers shutdown on August 11 2011.

Online multiplayer is still an option with the use of "XLink Kai", a free software that connects all players worldwide, assuming they have a wireless router.

Reception

  • Received IGN's award for Best PSP First-Person Shooter of 2006.
