  1. Anyone who is into WWII games, or who feels capable of leading troops into combat, should give this game a try...with all the improvements being made the score could easily jump to 87/100.
  2. If developer Playnet.com completes the vision it has for this product, it is a *very* strong contender for Sim Of The Year, if not Game Of The Year.
  3. A great game for the soldier while in reserves or the history buff but for the everyday gamer it may be too technically challenging with two little reward.
  4. Currently, the game is a labor of love - it takes a lot of patience, but can be rewarding and very enjoyable. If promised features are added soon, this could be a good game.

    I've been anticipating the electronic battlefield for some time now and while it's exciting to see this first attempt, there's still a lot of room for improvement. The primary issue seems to be stability.
  6. A dangerous mess of a game that can't be recommended to any but the most hard-core game players in its current state. The real concern is that even if the technical issues are resolved, the design issues will remain.
  7. Quite simply, this is a game that just doesn't work.

    WWIIONLINE is the only game I know of where a bullet is actually a bullet, not an estimation of a projectile with probabilities. Is this quantum physics? I hate quantum physics. Similar game mechanics are found in games like Oblivion where you raise your shield it actually blocks weapon swings or projectile, not a percentage to block and probabilities.

    The physics, realism and energy deserves a perfect score, the graphics are dated, and so is Capture The Flag dated. Seriously guys we've been playing Capture The Flag since the mid 1990's, time to move on and I don't mean people randomly spawning behind me like in COD.

    This game requires that you have at least 1Gig of ram a 2.2 ghz system, even with that the FPS is very very poor, you cannot be a lonewolf in the game as you are directed by other players as to where you will participate. The CTD rate is absolutely incredible, and you get all of this for the initial box cost and a 15 bucks a month. Dont waste your money on this stinker. Expand

    This whole series along with Eastern and Western front were the worst games ever produced, from lackluster play, to shoddy programming and bugs galore, dont waste $5 at a second hand store on these... was really excited about the prospect of a age of empires type game here, it was just plain horrific.
