Medal of Honor: Allied Assault (MoHAA) is a first-person shooter computer game developed by Electronic Arts Inc. The game develops as a simulation of infantry combat in the European and North African Environments during World War II. Allied Assault is the first game in the Medal of Honor saga to be launched for Windows. In the game the player assumes the role of Lt. Mike Powell of the United States Army Rangers who works for the OSS. Single player missions include assaulting German bases in Algiers and Norway, storming Omaha Beach on D-Day, and rescuing comrades behind enemy lines in occupied France. The original game's Omaha Beach mission is often compared to Steven Spielberg's 1998 film Saving Private Ryan. This level was re-created in Medal of Honor: Frontline for consoles. Other elements in the game are also comparable to the film, like the "Sniper Town" level and the "Guarding of the Bridge" level where the final battle sequence of the movie is very similar in action and visuals to the game. Patch 1.2 brings several changes and improvements to both the original game and the previous patches, among others, numerous single player levels modified to improve product polish, fixes on map rotations, and much more.
