    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.

    Love it! A game that developers dedicated to better game.

    The sound is amazing, battles are atractive, I can't stop to play.

    Only needs create more maps, more country soldiers and news battle fronts. Occur some lags, but at general this game is and will be amazing!

This WWII shooter drops you in medium to large battlefields with outposts to attack and defend. The game is free to play so expect some micro transactions. Expand

Historc accuracy(from which ever pen) was sacrificed for "game balance". Still it's fun to play. Unfortunately, by trying to strap the tactical game to the stategic the server they use cant cope. When you make the transition from staged to war, suddenly you ping trebbles and your fps is halved (unless you live next door to the server or mum bought you a state of the art P.C.). If they can address this issue I would give another go, maybe. Expand

    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

    Jesus christ ! Ok where to begin.The game is mildly P2W. If you grind HARD you can overcome that but i think i lost a few years of life in anger.
    It's pretty fun.

    The bad things.
    THE GAME IS CRAWLING WITH HACKERS ! Full and I mean not BF3 full - remember the hacker guy who revealed that about 70% of BF3 players were hacking? Yeah WORSE.

    Much WORSE.
    Basically every **** with a pipe rifle headshots you from across the map with no scope.
    And when you say this on the forum the replies FROM THE BLOODY DEVS are "git gud" "l2p noob" or a variation of the sort.

    The community is horrid, and it would make MOBA communities look EXEMPLARY by comparisson.

    It starts fun and it is fun to play with friends but even so you run into moronic design choices.
    If your friend is a tanker and you infantry you CANNOT both queue at once. Nope, you have to "random queue" and HOPE you get put together! Yes...idiotic.

    Then there is the whole hitbox issue that they KNOW about for 2-3 years and is still there.
    Basically you POINT BLANK unload a clip in the guy;s head and then he turns around like nothing happened and 1 shots you. Hitbox randomness lol.

    Stay away from this putrid garbage of if you MUST try it - AVOID American faction like the plague. This faction never EVER wins ( i have like 1 win every 78 loses or something and I usually TOP the scoreboard in "points" for capture and objectives ) because every **** retard runs around "sniping" and basically being a total **** while the nazis mow us down.
    Go on the nazi side at least that's "easy mode".
