Brothers in Arms User Reviews
- A great WWII game with realistic situations, people and missions.
- Comedy at points
- Good cinematic clips
- Easy controls and easy to command sqaud
- Great sound effects
- Available overview of the area your fighting in so you can carefully plan your attacks and how to flank your enemy.
- Boxes of ammo nessecery to complete the mission hidden in boxes or buildings.
- Something different from medal of honour
- The game tries to create a brotherly feel so you protect you men but even if they die they reappear on the next mission.
- Multi player isnt great
A very realistic WWII squad FPS based on the real life events of the 101st Airborne Divison (Screaming Eagles). You play as Matt Baker and you get to command up to two teams at once. The AI in the game is generally good as the enemy soldiers will adjust their positions to react to what you do so it is not always simple. Just watch out for the tank shells or grenades that if they dont kill you will leave you dazed and on the floor temporarilly.
Is a great WW2 simulator, all dialogue is spoken (ala KOTOR), great production values.The bad:
Is a great WW2 simulator NOT such a great game. repetitive, repetitive, repetitive gameplay and annoying loading screens take away all the charm from the game rather quickly.Summary:
Brother in arms is a great ww2 simulation , actually is so good that you can teach kids about this period of history using it as a tool (not smalll kids though since is rated "m") Each detail you may want is here, from the way the rifles loaded and how they sounded, what weapons were available (not many) and the scarce ammo they used, even actual military techniques.
Realism gets a looong way here, actually one thing I was initially impressed with was that German soldiers are not displayed as ugly, gorilla like baddies (like the ones you see in most games and movies ) they are actually kids...
Plenty of extras
Some dodgy shooting
Framerate needs work
Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 is another World War 2 first-person shooter. How many WW2 games has there been? Loads but thankfully Brothers in Arms can certainly stand out in the crowd.
Brothers in Arms has you playing as Sgt. Matt Baker and he is the leader of a thirteen man squad. He is a very good main character and he is very likeible. So are his squad. They all have their own voices, faces and personality.
The game starts off in a small trench with all of your troops. There is a lot of things happening and you are in such a bad situation. Everyone dies and that means you too. You act...
1. Easy to learn controls. You can command your men quickly and efficiently with the touch of a button.
3. The realism is unsurpassed. Down to every inch of grass, this game is real.
4. Graphics and sound effects are amazing. They also stick with the realism factor.
5. The characters develop and you get to know them, as well as yourself. Some die, some live. This also adds in an emotional factor.
7. Everything in the game is real. That's right, everything. Characters, weapons, events, and settings.
8. The singleplayer is the best thing about this game. It is long, immersive, and unpredictable.
9. Mutliplayer, while not the funnest part of the game, is still worth a try.
1. The Multiplayer could've been done better.
Other than that, nothing.
This is one of the best games I have played in a long time. I've gone through Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Call of Duty: Finest Hour, Medal of Honor: Frontline, and Tom Clancy games and nothing, and I mean nothing, has shown anything that this game has to show.
The controls are basic. You can jump, shoot, throw grenades, carry weapons (two), move, crouch, and zoom in. I liked the zoom in this game because it was relaistic. Soldiers in real life don't get crosshairs other than on their own weapons and, while you have the option, this game doesn't really do that. You can also command the sold...
- Finally, a World War Two video game that doesn't show Omaha Beach !
- Not your Medal of Honor, you need your squad to complete these missions.
- Witty humor at regular intervals.
- Disappearing bodies, but I can see why they took that out, with the frame rate and all.
- If your ally dies, he'll come back. Not very logical.
The most realistic World War Two shooter out there. BiA is all about realism. You might be thinking " Oh, another WWII shooter, time for Omaha Beach. " Not this time. Sure, I love running out of a Higgins boat onto the French coast with German soldiers shooting MG-42's at me as much as the next guy, but stuff gets old.
Now, you play as a paratrooper in the " Screaming Eagles ". (It's the 101st Airborne Divison for you non-military people out there.) Refer to my " The Good " part. During your gameplay, you will have access to a wide variety of weapons, all real. The M1 Garnad, M1A1 Thompson,...
1. Team tactics... not one man army stereotypical
2. Very amusing how you feel connected in some way
3. Feels like a movie
4. Everything basically
1. nothing really...Summary:
This game has set a standard for all shooters.... If your gonna have a Fps shooter... dont be a one man army. That wayyyyy it makes the game wayyyy more fun because people would not rely on yourself to beat it but like computer buddies that can save your ass with covering fire and help you take out enemies. The A.I is what makes it awesome the computers aren't in a arranged position they shift around often and make u keep on guessing. They can ambush you with a storm of bullets before you realize what hit you. This game is like a mix between battlefield 1942 full spectrum warrior, halo 2 co...
