    One of the best games on PS3 IMHO - puts Call Of Duty to shame, but COD wins because of clever mass marketing. Some of the graphics are the best of their time, and the gameplay is really realistic and intense at times. Glad I tried this one.

    While the game isn't bad, it's not good either. AI is rather atrocious, it can often feel like even though you're part of a unit, the enemy are only targeting you, even when there are many easier targets for them to get. They'll even be targeting you when they practically can't see you.
    The historical advancement of the game is slightly humorous. While no one is saying that it was trying
    to be historically accurate, it is quite funny once you start fighting super soldiers that can wield and fire while moving a MG42, and the incredibly annoying panzerfaust unit, even though since you are airborne you never get any tanks in the game, and they exist purely to make you're game experience a living nightmare.
    The controls were very unconventional and felt weird, which was quite annoying.
    The game is definitely a must buy for anyone who enjoys WW2 games, but it's not really something I'd want to play again after the first play through.

    The shiny coat of EA presentation covering all aspects of Airborne certainly help with the enjoyment, but there's not quite as much variety and interaction that we're becoming used to in top-tier shooters these days.
  2. There are promising ideas here but it's too messy overall for anything to really shine through. [Christmas 2007, p.100]
  3. The single-player campaign doesn't get cooking until the last two levels, but those two levels combined with solid multiplayer make it worth enlisting in the Airborne.
