"Best World War II shooter"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Very solid WWII game, forget about MoH, CoD because BoH:HH is where its at.

It features characters you will care for and relate with in a fantastic environment and atmosphere that will totally immerse you.

HH uses a similar cover system to Gears of War and the Rainbow Six Vegas series but it is better than having the mundane “lean” settings.

If you are a history enthusiast or are interested in WWII, you must get this game.

"A different kind of WWII shooter"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A lot of people see a game like this and instantly dismiss it as “another WWII game”. People who do this are doing themselves a great disservice. The Brothers in Arms series has always prided itself on being a great deal more tactical than its counterparts like Call of Duty 5. This game is a lot more like the old Rainbow Six games of the Rogue Spear era than most shooters today. The emphasis put on cover and the positioning of squads makes this game one of the most authentic WWII experiences to date. The graphics are impressive and the sound design is also excellent but it's the tactical gameplay which really makes this game great.

That's not to say it's perfect, there are a few bugs here and there, no more than any other game, as well as some of the animations and weapons effects being a bit unsatisfying. But you'll forget this as soon as the bullets start flying and you start thinking about the best way to outflank the next squad of Krauts.
