Not very different from the first game

You’d think, upon seeing this game in action for the first time, that this is an expansion to the first game, Road to Hill 30, but you’d be wrong. It is actually a proper standalone sequel, and I was a bit disappointed to know that. Here’s why: graphically the game is practically identical to its prequel. It also features a lot of the same weaponry and characters, with the only major different being that you no longer take the role of Sgt. Matt Baker, but rather Joe “Red” Hartsock, who was a Corporal under Baker’s command and led one of his fireteams, but has now risen to the rank of Sergeant, and has his own squad.

The core gameplay is much the same, which is good, and there are still unlockable extras in the game once you complete missions and certain objectives in missions, but there isn’t much to distance this too much from the first game, apart from seeing the story of the game continue to unfold through the eyes of another character. It’s a good game, but it’s just too similar for me to take it seriously as a proper sequel. There is hardly any progression or evolution whatsoever, and that is its biggest flaw.

This is a bloody gem

If you like playing the role of a squad leader better than being a lone wolf with followers, this is your game. The gameplay is based on tactics and fast decisions, as in real wars I presume, your first plan goes wrong very often. FUBAR they said. Based on real stories, the graphics are quite poor, but il will run perfectly on most machines. Sounds are GREAT, soldiers talk and yell. Multiplayer with a buddy is great.

A nice FPS where your brain plays , not only your hands.
