  1. Excellent sense of immersion, great storytelling.
  2. this is as intense and refined a shooter as can be. No, the WWII genre is not dead. This game is proof. [Holiday 2005, p.80]
  3. With so many World War II games on the market, Earned In Blood's dedication to creating an understanding of what the war meant to those who fought it, as much as providing the player with a recognisable game, should be lauded.

    It is a great game, and I have it for PS2. Its so realistic. You can't just charge that machine gun nest without taking a hit, like in It is a great game, and I have it for PS2. Its so realistic. You can't just charge that machine gun nest without taking a hit, like in other games. Youll just be mowed down. The storys also good. I only find it hard to command your squad while under fire, or get them somewhere without them getting distracted and standing in the open. But the stratagy is refreshing. You have to think, then act. Full Review »
