Amazon.co.uk Review

In a nutshell:
After a successful tour of duty on the current gen consoles Brothers in Arms returns in the ultimate WWII squad based shooter, set during the closing months of the war as you take part in the crucial Operation Market Garden in the Netherlands.

The lowdown:
Although there were many astonishing looking games at the recent E3 event this was for most people the most graphically amazing next gen game seen so far. The levels not only look near photorealistic but the game world is huge and almost completely interactive. The gameplay works in the same basic way as before, with an easy to use onscreen cursor enabling you to direct your men with a single button press. New movement types now exist though, allowing you to specify stealth or patrol postures depending on what you’re doing and how fast you need to move. The only problem is the enemy have the same abilities and their artificial intelligence is advanced enough to make proper use of them.

Most exciting moment:
Not only are the enemy intelligent but they’re also well trained, reacting just as a real German soldier would. They’ll hide in doorways, ambush at road junctions and even, in one memorable encounter, hide behind a washing line – where your only warning is from a Dutch civilian at a window above.

Since you ask:
Everything in the game is as realistic as possible with streets and house copied exactly from photos taken at the time, while all weapons and vehicles are modelled to work exactly as they did in real life.

The bottom line:
The most realistic WWII game ever – in terms of history, tactics and graphics.

By M. Bhangal TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Hells Highway is much the same as the previous releases, and if you enjoyed those (or want something a little more cerebral than the usual run and gun shooter) then this is the one for you.

Hells highway extends the previous versions through better graphics (it now uses the Unreal 3 engine), and a better storyline, played through via nice in-game cut scenes.

My only real issues with the game are perhaps a series of personal points -

1. Maps are still linear
The game doesnt utilize the new engine in anything other than better eye candy and physics. The earlier games were criticized for not allowing free roaming - you have to take a town using a set direction and can't (for example) skirt and attach from another direction that the enemy don't expect. You are stopped from doing things like this via really odd obstacles - a gate that looks like you should be able to jump over, or a corn field with a little stream running through it that you don't seem to be able to wade through. The U3 engine should be able to handle larger maps with multiple forking paths, but this is never developed.... So although you have an authentic squad based system, you cannot define an overall attack strategy (direction of attack, working out the enemy weak point, etc). the best the game offers is flanking paths (run down the back side street to catch the enemy from the side, rather than attack the whole town from an unexpected direction).

2. The game doesn't simulate true fog of war.
Every map feels like a series of puzzles rather than a battlefield. You HAVE to suppress particular enemy in a particular sequence to win, and you HAVE to move to certain positions to advance.

5.0 out of 5 stars A triumph 13 Oct 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Like many people, I've been waiting for this game for a long time, and it definitely doesn't disappoint!

In many respects it's like playing an episode of Band of Brothers. It's story driven, and missions don't feel repetitive. Authenticity has always been one of the key principles of the series - sound effects and clothing are accurate and the squad tactics make you feel like you're part of the action (not fighting the war on your own).

Graphics are definitely improved, but fall well short of Crysis and Far Cry 2. The biggest treat is the cutscenes, which are much longer this time round, and benefit from a surprisingly high standard of voice acting. In terms of performance I can run it maxed out on a mid-highend computer with great frame rates, so it shouldn't be too demanding for most people.

My only criticism is it could have been longer, but it definitely paves the way for episode 4!

3.0 out of 5 stars not Hidden & Dangerous 1 Dec 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Nice graphics, shame about the game play. It still feels as if it is on rails. I could not make sense of the story line, probably because I did not care too much about it. What was the point of the bit that involved running through a burning building?

The hospital part was almost silent hill; for a few seconds, then just got boring, walk down corrider, hide behind sofa, shoot germans, walk on a bit, repeat, etc. I was hoping for something like Hidden & Dangerous.

Overall not bad, but wait until the price comes down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly enjoyable if a little short 16 Oct 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First thing i need to mention is that if you havn't played the first Brothers in Arms game, Road to Hill 30, then you find the single player storyline very hard to follow. The game reintroduces the characters from the first two games paying special attention to Pvt Legget, Sgt Baker, Sgt Hartsock and Cpl Corrion. Anyone who has played the original game will remember Legget being killed so why is he in this one? Mainly to make the storyline more complicated i think. He keeps appearing in flashbacks Baker has of Normandy when he got Allen and Garnet killed, you also find out what really happened to them aswell.

Thats enough for the storyline i think or ill spoil the game for anyone intending to buy it. There are a lot of cutscenes in this game which shortens the actual 'gaming' time down. Like COD 4 the game is quite short, even shorter if you cut the cutscenes out. However it is extremely enjoyable the controls have not altered since the original. The same fire and maneuver tactics are used, your men are smart enough to find cover and only fire on the enemy when you tell them, generally. Sometimes they will do stupid things like run the wrong way between cover which exposes them to fire. This can get quite infuriating after a while as the game is checkpointed and they tend to do it in really difficult bits. You can avoid this by telling your men to move from cover to cover but this can be tricky if your being shot at and you want to concentrate on killing Germans than where your men are going. Slow motion desths have been introduced in this game which are triggered by headshots, grenade or bazooka explosions. These are pretty cool especially when 6 germans are killed by a grenade and they go flying all over the place in slow mo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Execellent! 10 Oct 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Some Xbox ports are really poor, like SBK08, others like this one are just awesome!

I'm only around 3 or 4 missions in, but I'm really getting into this game. Unlike other FPS's one has to stop and think about the situation before running in.

Suppressive fire actually works and you get to command various squad elements.

Game saving is by checkpoint, but I think this enhances this particular game as it forces the player to think about the risks he is taking.

Overall a great gaming experience that I would recomend to anyone.
