  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. The game offers so much, from an engaging emotional story to showing the brutal face of war. Easily one of the best WWII based shooters.
  3. Great storytelling aside, Hell’s Highway is an utterly gripping and action-packed jaunt into the hellish frontlines that might not be executed as well as it should be but is still worthy of playing. Its glitches and somewhat unspectacular visuals actually keep this from being a brilliant game but it doesn’t hold it back from being fun either.
  4. While it’s not a rupture from the series roots, this is still an excellent experience, thanks to a thrilling story and a group of characters that can touch the player. The tactical nature of the gameplay is still a distinctive approach in the World War II genre. [Oct 2008]
  5. Flawed squad mechanics and a crutch-like suppression system undo the game's historical and voice-acting achievements.
  6. Few World War II video games are as gripping and brutal as Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway.
  7. This might not be a game from hell, but it's no blessing of an experience either. Although it does history justice, gameplay isn't as kindly treated. Bad AI, flawed controls and an underwhelming presentation makes the overall experience a poor one. Add one haphazard online mode and you'll be hard pressed to find reasons for purchase here.

    Un juego diferente, una diversión diferente para por fin tener acción en primera persona realmente divertida yUn juego diferente, una diversión diferente para por fin tener acción en primera persona realmente divertida y entretenida. Se acabó el ir en plan Rambo, ahora debes estudiar al contrario y tener mucho cuidado de dónde pones a tus compañeros de batallón. Mejorable en el apartado gráfico, inmejorable en la sensación de estar verdaderamente en la II Guerra Mundial. Expand

    I thought it was pretty impressive display of the Unreal 3 engine. The story was Hollywood worthy and the new cover system worked quite well.

It's displays a lot of gore but besides that was one game that left me wanting more. Expand

    This is a great game! Great story, however I wish the acting was better. I believe the people that give this game a negative review is This is a great game! Great story, however I wish the acting was better. I believe the people that give this game a negative review is because they don't understand that this is more of a strategy game (not a run and gun). Expand

    DON'T waste your time, this is a bad joke, and what happened to the skirmish multiplayer of before, with squads and all?
