Set at the beginning of WWII you follow James Patterson, a young lieutenant in the 116th Infantry division. Cheating death and escaping the German lines after a failed air drop, Jimmy wants another crack at the Germans... the hard way, by storming the beaches at Normandy. You're thoroughly introduced to the German war machine in missions ranging from infiltrating a weapons facility to hijacking the newest plane the Luftewaffe has to offer.
The player uses a handful of period weapons ranging from the Army standard Colt .45 to the German MP40 machine gun. The life meter and ammo count make up your HUD as you pass from objective to objective along your mission. There's also a mission rating and medals system that takes your performance in each mission and gives you medals accordingly, which adds some replay value depending on your desire for achievement.
The campaign itself consists of 19 missions in which you
- Storm the Beaches of Normandy
- Seize the Nijmegen Bridge
- Infiltrate a secret weapons facility
- Sabotage U-Boats
- Stow away on a armored train
- Hijack the Nazi's newest experimental plane
And a handful of other missions that let you dish out the damage to the Germans.
