  1. One of the best values you'll ever find in a $10 add-on. [Feb 2005, p.72]
  2. Sabre Squadron's main claim to fame is its new multiplayer options, which allow you and some friends to play any of the nine new levels co-operatively. With the team AI problems eradicated, these levels become far more calculated and precise affairs (so long as your team-mates work together of course).
  3. The real reason to get the wallet out and evict those moths is the co-op, still the best part of the H&D series and perhaps the best squad-based multiplayer title out there.
  4. If you loved H&D 2 but are wondering if there’s any point buying this – the co-op feature makes this well worth the purchase and will see you take up your addiction once again.
  5. It is impossible to shy away from the realisation that H&D as a franchise needs a bit of a pep up in several areas and is gradually being left behind in a genre it once dominated.
  6. 70
    Overall, the game needs some more technical polish and more extensive AI.
  7. The game does have a multiplayer mode, but no one on the Internet is playing it. When you refresh the server list, you get nothing.

    I gave it a 10, because it's still the best WW2 game out there by a mile.

    The squad mate AI is still a bit wonky and the co-op multiplay doesn't let you go back to the original H&D 2 maps, but it's still The squad mate AI is still a bit wonky and the co-op multiplay doesn't let you go back to the original H&D 2 maps, but it's still the best WWII shooter out there. Makes Call of Duty look like the pathetic scripted rail shooter that it is. Expand
