Development

Michael Giacchino explains that in "Medal of Honor, Jimmy Patterson was represented by two different major themes - the main Medal of Honor theme, and his own more personal theme which was used during the tougher moments of his Journey."[2]

The game was written and produced by Peter Hirschmann.

Plot

In Medal of Honor, the player takes the role of the fictional Lieutenant Jimmy Patterson, who was recruited to the OSS. The game takes place during the near end of World War II, ( mid 1944- mid 1945). The goal of the game is to complete objectives, such as destroying enemy positions, and kill enemy German forces in the process.

Reception

IGN ranked the game #21 on their list of the "Top 25 Games of All Time" for the PlayStation console.[3]

Trivia

The game is notable for Michael Giacchino's extensive cinematic musical score that reflects the mood of the action on screen.

Dale Dye served as the game's military advisor, often subjecting the production staff to the same kind of combat training that the cast of Saving Private Ryan went through.

Philippine national hero Jose Rizal makes an appearance in the multiplayer portion of the game. He can be unlocked by clearing the single-player campaign, or by using a cheat code. Whenever the character gets killed in action, he is heard saying in Tagalog, "Para sa aking bayan!", which means, "For my country!".
