    I played it for a day and then gave up on it. i didnt find it fun... and although it seemed technically interesting... it was just annoying.

    Action Trip's reviewer says it right. Agree with his comments totally. A marketing scheme to sell an add-on as a sequel while the original game is still "hot". OK game, but seen it all before and not enough differences. Same good points same bad points as original BIA. 'Nuff said.

    Graphics are pretty bad. The actual gameplay is very repetitive and although it's challenging it certainly isn't fun. Realistic? Maybe. Frustrating, slow and boring? Most likely. It's not really a shooter and although it tries to be different, its flaws start to show when nobody plays multiplayer and the skirmish mode is bad as well. Nice idea, but bad execution.

    The same problems again. Weak graphics, teammates AI is too bad (but somehow the enemies AI is better), lack of realism (in the beginning of the game, one of our ally destroyed a Flakvierling with one Mk2 grenade). The flanking is not working again. If you have enough space for it, you get more enemies before your jaw. It makes the game challenging, but it's not funny. And of course, itThe same problems again.

    It's one of those sequels where all of the evolution takes place underneath the fa├žade -- a game you've got to pick up and feel all the subtle differences. And of course, if Blood is your first Brothers experience, well, it's hard to imagine going back to anything less authentic and strategic.

    Only an incremental improvement on the original. The greater flexibility of the AI and the new multiplayer options are certainly welcome additions, but the game still feels... more like Brothers in Arms v1.5 than a full sequel.
  3. Earned in Blood offers a rather similar experience to its excellent predecessor, with improved enemy artificial intelligence and additional multiplayer options. The novelty has worn off just a bit, though.
