Excerpt: "...genre hands down. Gameplay What Brothers in Arms does that really outshines the competition is plays upon the weakness of every game of its ilk that has gone before. In games gone by such as Medal Of Honor: Frontline you felt like you were part of a team for about the first 2 levels before every sense of being part of the bigger picture faded into nothingness and the WW2 setting was irrelevant as you trooped off on your one man mission to ...
Pros: Unique squad based gameplay, accurate recreation of WW2 Normandy, superb multiplayer
Cons: Bakers introverted thoughts, occaisional dips in frame rate
Brothers in Arms (PS2): Fight with your Brothers in Arms!
20 August 2009
Summary: Brothers in Arms Road to Hill 30 is a shooter for the Playstation 2 developed by Gearbox. The storyline follows you as Sergeant Baker and the rest of your squad who actually do have their own personalities and are not just mindless drones, the games story is actually based on real events of the 101 st airborne division of the USA army who were dropped behind enemy lines just before the events of D Day took place, the action takes place during the fighting in France and...
Pros: Good graphics, squad control, tactical gameplay
Cons: Can take some getting used to, guns arent as satisfying to shoot as in other games
Summary: Now I own on PS3 COD 3+4 and Moh Airbourne(is crap) but I CAN honestly say when i bought this in April 2008 that i had as much or more fun on it than on COD 3. There isn't really much point in writing this review as only a few 12 year old Band of Brothers nerds like me are going to buy this. But it's such great fun. Unique squad control that should have been utalised years ago.
Summary: Iniitially very good fun, the game is relatively easy to get used, having been playing Medal of Honour for a while. The real selling point for this game is the fact that you can order your fellow troops about, which adds more of a sense of resposibility than any other WWII games I've played. However, in terms of making them move about, the game can be a bit frustrating only being able to send them so far.
Summary: This is a very good game,it starts off with you landing in france during the d-day landings, but you land miles of where you are supposed too. So you have fight your'e way through the germans. In the game you control a squad, and you give them orders to attack and suppress, so your'e not just a one man army.
Summary: I really enjoyed this game,despite it becoming a bit samey towards the end.I thought the graphics were good,which helped to create a great sense of realism and a really good,edgy, atmosphere.The limited weaponry and strategic nature of the game were also big pluses,making you think a lot more about what you are doing rather than just blundering ahead.The enemy AI is initially very challenging,although after a while I began to see the patterns,and the AI of your squad...
Summary: In an industry plagued with run-of-the-mill FPS', especially WWII ones, Brothers in Arms is a fun and refreshing experience. It puts you in the shoes of Matt Baker, a reluctent squad leader in the 101st paratroopers. On June 6th, 1944 (D-Day), him and his men are dropped behind enemy lines into Normandy, and are assigned with the task of fighting their way through the French countryside, to eventually get to Hill 30, hence the title.
