Reviews and Problems with Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway
Showing 1-10 of 28
tries to be 2 games in one
28 February 2010
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've played a lot of the WWII type shooters. Medal of Honor, Call of Duty and now Brothers In Arms Hells Highway outshines them all. You play the part of Staff Sergeant Matt Baker, a paratrooper of the 502 Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne who along with his squad is tasked with various missions during Operation marketgarden in Nazi occupied Holland.
Summary: I own the previous Brothers In Arms game (Earned in Blood) - and while I found the multiplayer gameplay for that challenging and fun, there seldom are any servers hosting games. I decided to get Hell's Highway hoping to find more servers. Like Earned in Blood, there are not that many, but there are definitely more at the moment (On the average I find 3-7 servers running, depending on the time of day).
Summary: ... you have a weekend to dedicate to playing. As a dedicated call of duty fan, I felt as if I was being blashphemous buying this game, but the price was right. Beautiful gameplay, smooth controls (esp for having so many!). My favorite feature has to be the effective use of cover, very similar to rainbow six vegas... much nicer than just going from standing to crouch over and over. your squads arent the smartest AI I've ever seen, but there is far far worse out there.
Great storyline, fluid controls, repititve missions

Summary: The story was excellent, and I'd say it is about on-par with most movies/TV shows. At first I thought it was a continuation or a parallel storyline to Band of Brothers. It's cable or movie quality stuff. The controls are fluid, I had no trouble being immersed in the action. The missions can get very reptitive and it is frustrating that your character (Matt) keeps dumping good weapons automatically before new missions.
Summary: this one comes mighty close. I thought Call of Duty 4 was the best war game I have played. Not any more. BIA:Hell's Highway now has that honor. The AI for both the enemy and your squad is very good. The only thing I noticed was that your squad will run to a location and not always take the best route, sometimes getting hit. But this can be alleviated as long as you are suppressing enemy fire. Besides it doesn't happen often.
This is a WWII game that you HAVEN'T played before...

Summary: Okay misleading title because if you've played the previous two Brothers in Arms then you'll probably feel the same vibe playing Hells Highway more or less. What distinguishes this game from Hill 30 and Earned in Blood is a number of new mechanics such as regenerating health, which significantly drops the difficulty level of the game but in such a way that it feels a lot less frustrating to play now.
Summary: The Video has hight quality picture scenes . Very good effect guns's shooting sounds and hit effects . I like arms and tanks features. Some battle fields are very pretty . Game history is touch my heart.
Summary: This is definitely one of the better WW II first person shooters I've played (and I've played pretty much all of them). I wasn't crazy about all the video scenes, and I still don't think I understand the convoluted story line, but the gameplay itself was a lot of fun. Plus, it took me a lot longer to complete the single-player missions than a lot of other games have.
