  1. If the game weren’t huge enough already with so many different options that it almost seems like three different games put together, they plan on only going farther and making it bigger and more enjoyable. This game will truly stand the test of time, and over time it will only get better and better.
  2. Fighting through the streets with two hundred Allied or Axis troops on your side is what makes this an amazing game to play and one that is completely unique.
  3. Every death is a frustration, every kill a hard-won victory and for every firefight that has you sweating with tension, there'll be another that will have you wanting to stick pencils into your eyes just to relieve the boredom of guarding a backwater choke point. War is like that, apparently, and Battleground Europe is as real as it gets. [PC Zone]
  4. Compulsive is what Battleground Europe has the potential to be, if you give it a chance. But also if you fall in with the right players, in the right place, at the right time.
  5. 60
    Such complexity ultimately helps to make the game what it is for those who take the time to figure it out, but many gamers will find the lack of help and guidance here a real hindrance.

    Very long running and engaging world war II MMO. The game has been going through some rough times with bugs over the last couple of yearsVery long running and engaging world war II MMO. The game has been going through some rough times with bugs over the last couple of years however a recent announcement of patch 1.35 promises to fix them ALL (Including the horrible CTD bug) and ofcourse introduce the much-anticipated US forces soon. Some of the reviews on here are from people that log in, play for 1 week then give up. I can't be clear enough when i say that this is the EvE Online of WW2 shooters, it takes time to learn and takes a very long time to become a veteran. It is a game built for true gamers that want to have an engaging ww2 experience within a strong community and realistic settings. If you prefer graphics over gameplay then my advice is to stick to BF3 and COD (that isn't me having a dig, just saving you time and us grief in game when you cry because you're no good).

    Join the game, join a squad and get involved, READ and ENGAGE in chat to become part of the fight. To those who give this game love and attention it will treat you better than any other game out there. Those looking for a cheap thrill should stay away or be dissapointed.

    Played for years and will play for many years to come. BEST WW2 MULTI-COMBAT SIM AVAILABLE FROM 2001 - 2012 and beyond!

    10/10
