  1. The lack of precision and agility really destroys the pathetic online modes. Deathmatch, team deathmatch, and an “objective” territories-style mode are all sad, as is the twelve-player maximum.

    Airborne is a very hard game in short. The difficulty is nothing like you will have experienced before. I started of on Normal and I enjoyed Airborne is a very hard game in short. The difficulty is nothing like you will have experienced before. I started of on Normal and I enjoyed it, but found it frustrating when i died because the checkpoint system does you no favours at all. You can get all these marksman challenges but unfortunately you die and you lose all of them. It's a good game in short and it's very fun. It's not as good as Call of Duty or Brothers in Arms, but if you enjoy WW2 Shooters you will definitely enjoy this. Full Review »

    My main complaint is it's pathetically short campaign which would make the average campaign of today's EAs games look decent in comparison. I never played it's online but I'm assuming its a steaming pile of horse manure. All in all though it's an above average WW2 shooter with enough little interesting bits for it to be worth playing.
