Summary: I have the MOH bundle & most of the COD games & love them all. I have the Brothers in Arms " Road to Hill 30" & love the game & it's graphics. I did not however have the 2 episodes "Hell's Highway" & "Earned in Blood" & wanted them very badly. I ordered them both when I saw the great prices listed & since I have always had great luck with anything I have purchased through Amazon, I immediately sent off for them. Received them in short order & installed the very same day.
Summary: just snagged this game (3/11) and i will say first off this game is AMAZING! this is a huge step forward from the first 2 installments(road to hill 30, earned in blood). graphics are way better than the first 2. this game came out in '08 and still looks great. models and enviroment are more realistic and squad movement and hit detection is spot on. 3D battlefield overview is now replaced with a 2D map, which i find easier to navigate.
Summary: I really like all of the 2nd WW games- 1st or 3rd person. This game, however, suffers because of it's arcade style conversion from the X-box to the PC. The interaction controls are clunky and the graphics look fairly poor, even though i have fairly advanced PC parts. The only good part of this game is the cartoon trailers at the beginning of each section.

Summary: I started gaming very late in life with a Sony PS One , soon after my sister gave me a PS Two Slim and that's when I fell I love with WWII games. Recently I built my first custom PC , one with a real graphics card and a HDMI 1080p monitor , for the first time I was not restricted to what game I bought because my PC could not handle it. I took a chance with Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway , for some reason I thought this was an old game but it came out in Oct.
Summary: If you have played the previous 'Brother's in Arms' games, it will enhance your enjoyment of thid game. As a stand alone game, however, it is quite good. Having the context of the previous games would help you understand the cut scenes, but aside from that it's as good a WWII shooter as you coul ask for
Summary: Brothers in arms hells highway is based in september 1944 operation market garden nicknamed hells highway its a great game the graphics are great it has a fantastic story where you are Matt Baker a sargent based in world war two you have two teams your assault team made up of leader is Sam Corrian and under aged Frankie and A brit Dawson you also have a special weapons team who either had a bozoka or a machine gun depending on what mission your on the special weapons...
Summary: its an older game, so now its worth the $20 or so. this is a game that tries to do 2 things at once: be a FPS, and a squad command- tactical game. the squad orders work well, but the controls of the FPS side just arent as smooth as other games. you cant jump, or lie prone. when sprinting, you really cant turn....i suppose sprinting is supposed to be used just for dashing from cover to cover.
Summary: i was in best buy and i pick it up for 20 bucks and it came with a little toy and comic ...besides for that i have read the requirements and it says only Vista SP1 and XP SP3....i have XP but SP2 ...i bought it due to price...i decide to give it a shot see if it will run on my pc....it did and i was happy looks great gameplay nice theres a story to it...graphics looks amazing on my PC..
Summary: If you like FPS and RTS then this is the game for you, not only do you have to watch out for your life but also the lives of your men. I'm a huge fan of everything WW2 any book, video or game I can find I buy. And being a fan of all of the CoD games and wanting more I decided to try this and was hooked immediately. This game isn't for everybody but for the price and getting a really cool toy it's very worth it.
Summary: Don't waste your money on the PC version of this game. I have and XP desktop, and a Vista laptop..........The game will load, but it won't play,on either PC, ITS that simple........The people at UBI Surely know this and yet they don't offer any warnings,,,,,,,Of course not they are into making money ........
