    It's one of those sequels where all of the evolution takes place underneath the façade -- a game you've got to pick up and feel all the subtle differences. And of course, if Blood is your first Brothers experience, well, it's hard to imagine going back to anything less authentic and strategic.
  2. Excellent sense of immersion, great storytelling.

    Only an incremental improvement on the original. The greater flexibility of the AI and the new multiplayer options are certainly welcome additions, but the game still feels... more like Brothers in Arms v1.5 than a full sequel.
  4. 83
    The fact that you are being asked to pay full premium for what is effectively an expansion pack in all but name, may put some off.
  5. EiB feels grittier - closer to its fascinating yet fearful inspiration - than any other military shooter out there. Much of that feel comes from the credible mission design and AI already mentioned but a significant portion stems from fundamentals like the way the weapons look, sound and perform.
  6. It's fun and well produced but it's a console version of an expansion pack and nothing more.

    Marches behind its predecessor as one of the most polished tactical shooters ever released. [Jan 2006, p.44]

    main concept of the game is cool, but there are some flaws in game
    however, none of them spoil the playing experience.

    i think best of the BIA is EiB

Its almost like a movie which is a pity because basically the action gameplay can be good and the combining of tactical play is a great idea. Expand
