According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence

For parents, the seriousness and integrity with which Medal Of Honor takes its historical subject and tries to be somewhat educational at the same time, makes Medal Of Honor a great game for mature kids and teens who are interested in contemporary history as well as action games. But make no mistake that the violence in Medal Of Honor reflective of actual war, brutal and unflinching. So parents with children 12 and under, might want to take special consideration before picking up this well produced title.

No matter how impressive Medal Of Honor is for the PlayStation, PC Gamers with their 3D accelerators capable of huge textures and 32-bit color will laugh their asses off when they see it. Medal Of Honor is perfect fodder for PC gamers whom love to get into flamewars with Console gamers about system superiority.

For PlayStation owners, if you believe in better late then never, you're gonna love Medal Of Honor. It may not look all that pretty, but it got its where it counts; style and gameplay. And make sure you have Dual Shock controller because the analog control will make a world of difference towards ease of control.  

Multiplayer gamers will be disappointed the Medal Of Honor doesn't allow 4-player Deathmatching and while the two-player competitive modes are decent, expect overly dark stages making hunting a little tougher then I would have liked.

In the 1980s, Chi grew up in small town on the outskirts of New York City called Jackson Heights. Latino actor, John Leguizamo referred to the town as the "melting pot of the world," and while living there, Chi was exposed to many diverse cultures, as well as a bevy of arcade classics such as Pac-Man, Space Ace, Space Harrier and Double Dragon. Chi's love of videogames only seemed to grow as his parents finally caved and bought him an 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (after being the only kid in the block without one). In the 1990s, Chi finagled his way into the prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts.

Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.

Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
