3.0 out of 5 stars What's a flank?, 25 Sep 2009
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Brothers in Arms: Road To Hill 30 (PS2) (Video Game)
This FPS has a subtle difference to most. The overriding concept is flanking the enemy. Your troops lay down suppressing fire while you sneek around and kill them. Simple.

The flanking technique is achieved by placing your squad members in a strategic position under cover and asking them to fire at the target, usually a bunch of germans. It works well but the controls do take a bit of getting used to. Problem is this is what you do this throughout the game. Some tactics are obvious but there are a few that you need to get your thinking cap on. At least it gives a purpose to your squad management.

On the downside, the graphics are average and the sound is terrible. Feable and dull. Although the game has checkpoints you can only save at the end of the mission. Fair enough but you have to get there on one life. There are no health packs or regen health. If you do go back to a checkpoint you have the same health level as you did when you passed through before. It is easy to get trapped with low health and restart the mission over again. Also ammo is scarce and of course your enemies take a mag each to down. It may make the game realistic but it also make it a chore.

This is a good concept but it translates into a rather dull and lifeless shooter that proves to be as frustrating to play as it is enjoyable
