  1. One of my favorite World War Two video games on any system, if the couple of glitches were fixed it would be my favorite over Call of Duty on the PC. But for your home console, buy this great game and enjoy it. Hopefully they are working hard (after a vacation) on Brothers in Arms: Battle of the Bulge which is the last big fight the 101st was part of in World War 2.
  2. While there were a few graphical issues within the game, World War 2 has never been told with such passion and quality.
  3. The fantastic storytelling coupled with an equally impressive score though will make you forget your grievances with the finished product, and there are just enough extras in the campaign to make completionists return a couple times to get them all.
  4. A competent tactical shooter blessed with a dedication to narrative rarely seen in shooters. If Gearbox can build off this success with more inventive gameplay, the series has a chance of overcoming the boredom that curses so many WWII titles.

    It's not essential playing, but Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway does offer an insightful and thoughtful take on the Second World War.
  6. Brothers in Arms: Hell`s Highway can only be recommended to fans of the series, because of its mixture of strategic and frenetic action this game will not please fans of any to those two components. Still, it is not a bad game but loses to the competition and only fans of this series will know how to appreciate it.
  7. Online multiplayer in Hell’s Highway depends too much on your teammates adhering to their assigned roles.

    This game was well worth the money, with an ever growing boring fascination that developers and fans have with multiplayer games, this is the game to get if you want a game with an engrossing story line that you can really get in to. Alot of shooters now focus on modern conflicts which are mostly made up but this focuses on a real life airbourne division that really did go through hell in operation market garden. The dissapointment with this game is that its supposed to be a tactical shooter but there are little tactics involved, its all relatively easy. Also I dont get the to be continued message at the end as that is now four years old and no sequel. Expand
