    A whole lotta hype for something that doesn't stand up to other wwii games. Get the feeling everyone loves it because it's from a nobody developer.

    1st impression - it stinks!!!! I haven't got a clue what I'm supposed to do and am constrained to a tiny area, the Germans appear to be bullet proof (or worse it wont let me fire if I might screw the narrative) and then a tank comes along and kills the entire platoon. All the (crap) cutscenes are non skipable so a restart takes about 2 minutes. Not that this game didn't 1st impression - it stinks!!!!

Not that this game didn't manage to wind me up into a rage in about 30 seconds with it's tedious, moralising monologue and gratuitous dialogue. I'd be getting my money back about now. Expand

    This is one of the worst Ubisoft games I've played. I had high hopes considering that both gearbox (Counterstrike 2) and Ubisoft (Splinter Cell/Rainbow Six series) were in on this one. Unfortunately, I was gravely disappointed with what seemed an average game with blocky mechanics and below average graphics. Play either Halo 2 or Rainbow 6 and this game will look like it was made for This is one of the worst Ubisoft games I've played.

Unfortunately, I was gravely disappointed with what seemed an average game with blocky mechanics and below average graphics. Play either Halo 2 or Rainbow 6 and this game will look like it was made for the PS1. The multiplayer on XBOX Live is a total waste, allowing a maximum of 4 players to battle (2 vs 2). On Live, it takes about 10 minutes just to find someone who wants to play. Actually, if you're looking for a game that's similar to this one but done right....go buy Full Spectrum Warrior. That's a game that actually captures the essence of combat. Collapse

    I played this game for an hour and was already incredibly bored. This might be nice for a one night rental, but is nowhere near $50. The cut scenes are long and tedious, and all you can do is watch them, there isn't a cut scene option.

    Another ultra linear main stream title. And even though gearbox manages to get some strategy into this game it rather quickly becomes dull to do the same surppress and assult tactics throughout extremely linear yet beautiful environments. This game is completely bereft of replay value - there is one way through each map and roughly only one way to deal with the krauts. Furthermore the Another ultra linear main stream title. And even though gearbox manages to get some strategy into this game it rather quickly becomes dull to do the same surppress and assult tactics throughout extremely linear yet beautiful environments. This game is completely bereft of replay value - there is one way through each map and roughly only one way to deal with the krauts. Furthermore the engine is probably one of the weakest to date - the guys from gearbox have somehow managed to cripple the unreal2 engine making it this game run with unacceptably low frame rates on a powerful pc without showing the player anything new apart from some good bloom effects and some soft lighting. And i can go on - the load times completely kills this game with the 2 min. loadtimes on ever map and the 1-1½ min. for the QUICK LOAD?! (1gb ddr4400 dual) But i get it - the game delivers main stream action in calustrophobically linear environments. Thats the kind of gameplay the mainstream gamer wants.. sadly. Expand

    I don't understand why people think this is at all a good game. The story line and dialog are typical and boring. The gameplay while mildly unique is redundant and ultimately uninteresting. I played it all the way through in two sittings and was everything but impressed.

  1. The gameplay has been honed to near-perfection, showing that a tactical approach doesn't necessarily lead to more complexity.
  2. Fitting and intense graphics matched with simply amazing audio and a gritty uncensored environment makes this one game not to pass on no matter what kind of games you enjoy.
  3. What makes this game even more impressive is the Xbox Live support, which is honestly the best online squad-based experience out there today.
