    NOTE: REVIEW MAY BE SUBJECT TO REVISION UPON FULL RELEASE

    This is an amazing game, it's an FTP first-person shooter that's set in the European Theater of WWII. You start as a standard infantryman, but as you increase in rank you can unlock new classes (like tank crewman, fighter pilot, recon, and paratrooper). The game also allows you to unlock new weapons and vehicles through both rank and by earning combat ribbons (basically an achievement system). There is also a place to get together with friends of the same class and form a squad so you can all play together (number of friends in you squad is dependent on your class, i.e. infantry can have six, while tanks can have three). You can also have multiple soldiers, so you can have a variety of classes to play with (I have an infantryman, a tank crewman and a fighter pilot).
    There is also a place where you can pay to unlock vehicles and weapons early (although for tank crewman, if you buy a heavy armor off the bat you will not be able to use it very often until you get to a rank where there are heavy armor squads).
    Another neat feature is you can unlock upgrades for your weapons, like a hair trigger for your guns that will increase ROF but decrease stability. Or for tanks and jeeps you can get infantry support crates (ammo and health, or anti-tank weapons).
    All in all, this is a great game and it's only in beta form. It has a great diversity of classes, weapons, and vehicles. If first-person shooters are your thing, then you should definitely try this game, and since it's free, it can't hurt to try it.

    A game, that before the Rommel build which game out during august was worth a score of 8-9, to what I today would call a Pay2Win game and isA game, that before the Rommel build which game out during august was worth a score of 8-9, to what I today would call a Pay2Win game and is worth around 5 in score.

    The game itself, offers a great motivation to make a difference, due to the combination of FPS and that you can make a difference in the big picture, and control "assault teams" (spawn and equipment) on the strategic European map and thereby make a war effort in winning the war for either the Axis og Allies.

    The FPS part, looks good (not perfect) and it takes a bit of time to learn the starters weapon. Once you get acquainted with those, you really start to make a difference. Over time, more weapons are unlocked, not that they are much better than the others, but they make a difference in one vs one battles. You can also unlock modifications to the weapons making them more deadly in the way you use them. Besides this, the game offers a good variety of vehicles and planes which has an impact on who wins the game. Its allot more tactical than your standard FPS game, so if you are more a strategic and teamplayer person, this is the game you want to spend time with.

    The strategic map part where you can move around your personal assault teams of troops, varying from, recon, tanks, infantry, paratroopers, mechs, motorized and tanks makes a big difference once deployed in the battle. Its great fun to play with your own assault team, and increases the motivation to win. You gain xp from that as well.

    The bad part of the game, is that before the Rommel build which came out in August, allot of players had invested money and time in creating assault teams. With the Rommel build, the whole setup was changed and most people who had invested in this would have to play allot of hours to regain enough "command points" to be able to use their assault teams again. When I say allot, I mean for instance I had to spend +50 hours (with premium, and game bonuses), to be able to just get one command point. And that was not even enough to be able to use my old assault teams. To give another comparison, we were 21 friends playing the game almost everyday and had fun together. After the build, we were 3 players left.

    I surely hope that the developer of this game, can see the large decrease in both amount of players, and the amount of time played ingame since the build came out. I hope they will find a retention patch to try and help people back into the game. But lets wait and see.

    Mediocre Pay2Win shooter with a couple large maps and several small ones. There are two factions - Allies (US) and Axis(Germany). Each factionMediocre Pay2Win shooter with a couple large maps and several small ones. There are two factions - Allies (US) and Axis(Germany). Each faction can send an "Assault Team" of 20 players to capture a region. An assault team is essentially a certain number of spawn tickets. Once there are no more spawns, the assault team is defeated.

    While the game could've been a 5, it has horrible network issues. Playing on a server with "green" ping, I routinely see my tank shots fly straight through the enemy tank, as if it is not there. No "Armor too Thick" or "Impact angle too high" messages, just does nothing. These issues might not be visible for infantry, where you just assume you miss, but seeing a nice shell tracer go straight through makes the issue obvious.

    The Pay2Win system consists of a lengthy grind to progressively unlock more powerful weapons. Players earn 10 levels of badges through gameplay, and one of the last badges (like 8-9 unlocks next tier item). For example, light tank 7 or so unlocks Stuart tank for the US, while light tank 9 unlocks first medium tank. There's a crapton of grinding in an AWFUL M2 tank. While it looks like a regular tank from a side, it actually has 2 MG turrets that rotate about 80 degrees, meaning as a driver, you simply cannot look right.

    There is a shortcut of paying about 8 dollars per weapon and 13 dollars per premium weapon (ex: sniper rifle). The grind is LONG, really long.

    Unsurprisingly, the German faction is significantly more populated and is fairly overpowered in terms of tanks and MG42s. Even the login screen says that there are too many germans.

    The game looks about the same as battlefield 2, - rather flat terrain without grass rendering more than 50 meters away, shadows are pretty nice though.

    The game features several vehicles for each side - 3 types of tanks (light, medium, heavy), tank destroyers, planes and transport. None of these really stand out, and the tanks feel really clunky, I have not found the zoom button, so light tanks have better zoom than medium ones. There's practically no bullet drop of any kind - you point your gun and the shell lands exactly where you are looking at.

    In order to spawn with vehicle, the player needs to buy a tank crewman, or grind a rifleman to tier 3. For a pilot, the grind is to tier4, for a sniper to tier 6. Each soldier has to unlock same items, which is where my biggest gripe with the game is.

    The spotting system is fairly good - after placing crosshairs on an enemy for a few seconds, a static marker appears in that place for 10 seconds or so. This means it's really hard to "shoot red things" through cover.

    Lack of maps really starts to show, even after a few hours of gameplay - you will be fighting over the same city, same villages, same factory, and the same single airfield OVER, and OVER, and OVER, ad nauseum, with Germans winning 90% of the games. While some maps are large, they are not complex enough to warrant different tactics. Tanks camp the same hill on airfield, people shoot out of the same windows.

    There's minimum destructible environments- tanks can crush wooden and wire fences.

    Overall, a mediocre Pay2Win shooter, there are much better ones, like PlanetSide 2 (where you get a whole continent of a map), WarThunder, where planes actually fly like planes

    This is exactly how you DO NOT MAKE A GAME! You pay to have instant kill weapons or grind for hours to days to get enough in game credits toThis is exactly how you DO NOT MAKE A GAME! You pay to have instant kill weapons or grind for hours to days to get enough in game credits to get them. Not newbie friendly. Anti-tank weapons are not easily available, forcing you to either a. pay real money, b. grind for a couple of days for in game credits, or c. hunt all over the map to find disposable anti-vehicle weapons. On top of this, while it is a great concept, battlefield 1942 did it better, much better. This cannot get anything other than a 1 out of 10. While I can give them props for the idea, I cannot say they did a good job, I cannot say they made an average game, this is purely RUBBISH!!! There are no excuses for this atrocity, the developers obviously did not think this through and refused to think after there were complaints. Oh yeah they have to make money somehow, well, how about cosmetic changes. Hell, they want you to "subscribe" and pay monthly fees to have bonuses, instead of a one time fee... What were they thinking? Again, no excuses!!! Expand
