Airborne Troops

Description

Airborne Troops is an absorbing infiltration action-adventure game that takes place in occupied France during the Second World War. On a mission to drop two secret agents into occupied territory the Sergeant's aircraft is shot down leaving one of his agents seriously wounded. It is now the Sergeant's duty to replace the ailing agent and complete the stealth missions himself. The gamer takes part in commando missions based on real events in the places where they actually happened, accurately recreated from archives and historical documents. The action is a mix of furious gunfights and stealth elements, with paratroopers equipped as they were at the time.

Not the best third person action game out there but fun nevertheless.Not a WW2 difficulty hell like CALL OF DUTY,but an easy to pick up game with OK controls and camera.It is really worth your money!

This game is a classic WWII title. There are two ways to play this game, just blast your way though, or play it as a stealth game. The game is pretty realistic. The graphics aren't the best in the world but the story and gameplay is worth the price. The gameplay is really fun, it's easy to learn. The stealth part does have some glitches but that isn't a problem. The game is great by itself and worth getting. Maybe waiting for a sale is a good thing.

A nice WWII stealth/FPS combo

Those of you who have found memories of the old Hidden and Dangerous games will find much enjoyment in Airborne Troops, as will those who like a title with varied gameplay in it. This may be a budget title, but the solid gunplay and decent stealth elements make this one well worth a look.

Graphically, the game hasn't aged too well, but what visuals are there more than get the job done. Little or no lag is present, even during large firefights. Friend and foe are easily identifiable, and period weapons and equipment all look quite good, showing the claimed research that was done really did happen.

The story is quite good, and you'll visit many different areas, from pitch black warehouses to wide open farm country. The majority of your time will be spent in the city, though, and there's a great variety in the building models used, so there's not too much of an "I've seen this before" feel to everything.

Airborne

faraany3k | Sept. 1, 2011 | See all faraany3k's reviews »

The biggest flaw is not with the game design or graphics, they are pretty good for there age. But tons of glitches and bugs that we face while playing. The Third Person camera in a WW2 shooter was a slightly different take on the Shooters of that era like Battlefield 1942 and Medal Of Honor. Game plays just like a standard Third Person Shooter. Hit detection and shooting is fun. Weapons feel and sound just like they should be. But the camera issues are horrendous. There are times when we stuck into environment, camera is clunky and we lose sight of our own character pretty often. Story is your general WW2 affair. But all in all few bugs don't break the game and Airborne Troops feel fun with lots of gunfights and some stealth based sections. A good game with a fair price tag for all WW2 shooter fans.

Familar

This is very similar to games like Hidden and Dangerous. So if you ever played games like that, then you should know what to expect. Gameplay that is fun sometimes and gameplay that is out right annoying. Your character is third person. Meaning, the camera is behind or around him. But the camera is not placed very well. Sometimes you can't even see your character because of walls and such, very annoying if your in a fight. But on the side, it lets you see a broader range. So it has it's own pros and cons. Expect more issues like this, so play at your own risk. Graphics are not a must-play level, so nothing really special. It is bearable though. An okay buy.
