  1. It's also unfortunate that there's no multiplayer of any sort, which definitely hurts the game's longevity. [Dec 2008, p.98]
  2. Imprecise motion controls and muddy visuals. [Christmas 2008, p.99]
  3. A frustrating package. There's a wealth of gameplay, across the two discs, but very little variety.
  4. Double Time gives you double the frustration for half the price.
  5. On one hand, the core game itself is good, and the story presented here is something you don't expect in a game. On the other hand, the technical execution of the title is so poor that one is surprised that it can run at all.
  6. As if we haven’t seen enough WW2 shooters by now, Ubisoft chose to port these two decent shooters into one horrible compilation for the Wii.
  7. 30
    Brothers in Arms: Double Time contains two dated World War II games that have actually fared off worse in making the transition to the Wii. This is a compilation you will want to avoid.

    Better than Medal of honor 2 and call of duty 3. Almost perfect controls, realistic action and challenging levels. The only thing this game is missing is mulitiplayer online capability. Expand

    A good game. Great use of motion controls. Some frame rate issues hold it back a bit. Overall the best brothers in arms I've played so far. The motion controls makes it easy to command team,and throw grenades. I recommend to the ww2 faithful. Expand

    Had a lot of time playing this over the weekend, and absolutely loved it! Going to keep this game, and I am still so far from completing it! Replay value is high, as you can take different routes in missions sometimes, and change difficulty. Shame theres no online, but I am not fussed too much after playing this. Expand

    Just a port of the Road to Hill 30 and Earned in Blood games from the previous installments of the BIA series on XBOX. Poor contorls, shotty hit detection and miminal improvements over its XBOX counterpart make this game mediocre at best. Expand

    The best part of this game was skirmish and now that they have removed it, it doesn't feel complete. worse than the PS2 version which was very good Expand
