    It's a slightly above average title. The game plays similar to medal of honor frontline, except not as well executed. There's many scripted events and a set path which you must follow (or die). The whole war atmosphere is well done, but the graphics aren't exceptional. In particular, the textures in the environment look grainy and unnatural.

In particular, the textures in the environment look grainy and unnatural. Many of the missions seem unexceptional too. It's like they included all the cutting room floor levels or something. While this isn't the worst war game to come out recently, it's not something that's particularly memorable. Expand

    Gameplay feels like very other WW2 shooter ever made. Graphics on XBOX look very PS2ish, which is to say blocky and old. Everything is so scripted, so there is next to no A.I. altogether. Tank missions should have been left out altogether since they are no fun and framerates go to hell. Medal of Honor meets Battletanx is no ones Finest Hour. Wait for Brothers In Arms or play Ghost Recon 2 Gameplay feels like very other WW2 shooter ever made. Graphics on XBOX look very PS2ish, which is to say blocky and old.

Hell, even the sadass attempt at a first person shooter that is Halo 2 is better than this. Expand

    The shoddy A.I. and other flaws are rare or negligible enough so as not to detract from the overall enjoyment of an otherwise great game. [Jan 2005, p.89]

    With the lovely graphics comes lovely sound.

    The game's presentation is incredible... Unfortunately, the A.I. should have spent more time in basic training. [Feb 2005, p.87]
