    Medal of Honor 
  • The background info for why Jimmy Patterson was recruited into the OSS. Piloting a C-47 full of paratroopers for the Normandy Invasion, he's forced to crash land, and then spends most of the rest of the night defending his crew from repeated attacks by German patrols, until he finally finds some French resistance members to take them back to friendly lines. In story, Jimmy was awarded the Medal of Honor for this act.
  • The Dachsmag Port level, where you have to scuttle a giant U-Boat. The Nazis launch the thing early because Jimmy was causing so much havoc that they thought he was an entire Allied battalion!
  • The ending of the first game. Reprogramming a V2 rocket and firing it at its own launch facility was pretty tight.

    Medal of Honor: Underground 
  • The ending of the second game tops the first one. One-Woman-Army Manon single-handedly fights her way out of an ambush involving an entire armoured column, then saves Paris by causing two German trains carrying explosives to crash into each other!
    • Bonus points: Manon is Parisian herself.

    Medal of Honor: Allied Assault 

    Medal of Honor: Frontline 
  • Frontline's first level: Your Finest Hour. Storming the Beaches of D-Day. To date, this is the closest gaming equivalent to the Omaha beach scene in Saving Private Ryan. It helps that the series was produced and overseen by Steven Spielberg after all...
    • The crowner of that crowning moment is when you finally fight your way up an defence emplacement, kill the gunners on top and turn a machine gun against the other emplacement and let the Germans there see how they like being mowed down!
    And when he gets to heaven
    To Saint Peter he will tell
  • Jimmy completing his mission that he has been on for several months by now; namely killing Sturmgeist, and stealing the HO-IX while dodging his own allies bombs raining down on him.

    Medal of Honor: Rising Sun 

    Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault

    Medal of Honor: European Assault 
  • The opening cinematic of the first mission of European Assault. A battalion of British commandos aboard a captured German boat trying to sneak into the St. Nazaire harbor at night, the tension the men are feeling so thick it's almost visible. Then suddenly, the Germans open fire and in the midst of the shooting, the commando leader orders the Union Jack hoisted and declares We'll ram it down their throats!!" right before the boat rams the docks at full speed. Now THAT is how you start a game.
