Medal of Honor: Underground is also a Game Boy Advance game released on November 25, 2002. It is a first-person shooter based on the PlayStation version. The game was developed by Rebellion and published by Destination Software. Underground for the GBA features up to 4 players using the Game Boy link cable and 17 levels.
Underground garnered unanimous positive reviews for the PlayStation version just like the game before, with praise for the action-packed moments and the engaging soundtrack. Although, the Gameboy version received mixed to negative reviews, being criticized for sub par graphics and slower frame rates compared to the PlayStation version.
It has a Metacritic score of 86 for the PlayStation version and 46 for the Gameboy version.
Medal of Honor Underground has an unique feature which none of the previous original version has: the buddies will help to get rid your enemies, which make the progress easier. While so, some of the mission requires you to protect the buddy or it will result of mission failure if he dies.
Unlike the original version, Medal of Honor Underground limits the amount of reserve ammo; while the original version can hold up to 999 reserve ammo, in Underground the player can only stock the specified limit of reserve ammo based on weapon type: 300 rounds for SMG, 5 for Panzerfaust, 100 for pistol and rifle, and 9 for both German Grenade and Petrol Bomb. Also when swapping the weapon after being used, the weapon will automatically reloaded, unlike the original where the player should reload the weapon manually. This would help to avoid running out of ammo when encounter a swarm of enemies.
In Underground, the vehicles now available as a new enemies which player encounter in several missions. While rocket launcher or bazooka purpose is just to eliminate a large group of enemies, the new type of rocket launcher, Panzerfaust is available in Underground and can be used to take down both infantries and tanks.
