Medal of Honor Pacific
Assault and Director’s Edition Update


Medal of
Honor Pacific Assault

gives players a sense of the courage it took to fight the Imperial Japanese
Army from the shock of Pearl Harbor to triumph on the shores of the Tarawa
Atoll.  Set in the Pacific Theatre of Operations from 1941–1944, players will
assume the role of Marine recruit Tommy Conlin as he survives the attack on
Pearl Harbor, leads the assault on Guadalcanal and finally charges up the
beaches for the climatic battle at Tarawa. Relying on natural instincts and a
variety of authentic weapons, it’s up to players to stop the Japanese war
machine in its tracks.
