  1. It's not just its uncompromising realism or its emotive theme, it's the whole package -- great looks, fantastic sound, and a gameplay and plot structure that promotes bonding with the men under your command. Wrap that up with a slick control method and, for once, some tactical depth, and you're left with a very special recipe.

    There’s a sense of respect in the game, a sort of homage to the past, that isn’t available in other WWII shooters. Couple that with a truly magnificent presentation.
  3. The game has something that many games are missing these days, and that is emotion.
  4. Quite honestly the first realistic shooter I’ve found myself completely enthralled within. It’s cross between Medal of Honor/Call of Duty and Full Spectrum Warrior gameplay creates an experience that is fresh and compelling, while the multiplayer mode should make this one of the most popular titles around.
  5. Easily the most enjoyable and innovative WWII experience out there. Period. [May 2005, p.72]
  6. No two games play alike thanks to the incredible AI who act like real human enemies. They also die like real humans, meaning that they aren't given an unfair advantage. This is war.
  7. 90
    Just about every aspect of the production is top-notch, from the stunning graphics to the realistic, graphic dialogue.
  8. Not only does it have everything that all of the other first person shooter games have had, but it also has a feature that adds just enough strategy to the game that separates it from the rest.
  9. What makes this game such a wonderful and hellacious journey into the heart of warfare is its ability to let chaos reign. [May 2005, p.122]
  10. If you can get the Xbox or PC version, I would highly recommend that version over the PS2 version. If the PS2 version is your only option, then you won’t be disappointed.

    Bought a game falsely represented, blasphemous in claims of realistic and authentic world war2 ever. even on the xbox version the visuals isBought a game falsely represented, blasphemous in claims of realistic and authentic world war2 ever. even on the xbox version the visuals is crapp and physics engine is also crapp. How can you claim a game to be realistic when visually its not even resembles the slightest visuals of a real world. Gameplay is as dull as watching chessmatch between kasparov and supercomputer. somehow when you finish a level your weapons change on the start of the new level how could that be possible in the real world, another is the level design is as flat as flatbreasted woman really uninspiring and unmotivating, you cant really explore the areas somehow theres a dead horse on the road you cant cross that path somehow an invisible wall stops you.. The A.I is as bad as the rest of the game, even if your near the enemy they somehow miss you by a mile. Enough said as worst as star wars republic commando(crappiest fps of the year). Full Review »

    How much realistic can a game get before becoming boring? In this one you will understand how lame weaponry was back in the 40´s and How much realistic can a game get before becoming boring? In this one you will understand how lame weaponry was back in the 40´s and how poorly equiped the troops were, you will realize that in order to shoot an kill an enemy was as difficult as catching a fly with a sieve. But in the end, you surely won´t pick this game ever again. It´s too short and the its features are so weak that it feels like playing a demo. Full Review »
