Battalion recaptures the core of classic competitive shooters & refines the ‘classic’ FPS feel for the next generation. Focusing on 5v5 infantry combat, where precise flick shots with your Kar98, covering fire with your Thompson and fluid movement are key to clutching every round for your team.
Classic WWII FPS Roots – Skill Is King
Strike with speed, strength and precision as Battalion’s swift and smooth infantry combat paves the way for a skill ceiling competitive gamers will die for. You won’t find any airstrikes, attack dogs or overpowered god guns here. In Battalion 1944, you, your skill and your rifle reign supreme.
Wartide – Game Mode
Two teams. Two weapon armouries to be fed with the blood of your enemies. Two objectives to defend or blow to smithereens. Five players per team. Thirteen rounds to secure victory.

The only way i can describe this game is that it merges the old school call of duty with a CS:GO style game play, sounds good right? Well it has its good points and bad points, so lets start with the good points. This is the WW2 shooter we have all been waiting for, the hit registry is better than its competitors (still not great), the graphics are good and if you get a team of 5 friends together then you can actually do some good gaming. Now for the negatives, There are times in this game where you feel like breaking your keyboard, there have been times where you can put 2 or 3 M1 Garand rounds into someone and they one shot you with an mp40. you don't have the ability to cook grenades and the enemy can see the grenade marker where you have thrown it so its basically pointless to throw them unless you get lucky. All in all, its an average game for early access, i am just hoping the dev's make it better and work on some of the issues
BATTALION 1944 is a multiplayer only fast paced, more arcade like, shooter than something like BF1 or Call of Duty WWII. You will use the weapons of the WWII era but recoil is low, bunny hopping is a tactic, and jumping around corners to quick scope with a sniper rifle is a perfectly usable tactic. Game modes are a domination game, capture the flag, deathmatch modes, and a 5 vs 5 objective based mode with one life for each round.Maps and the art style are simple and likely designed to avoid clutter. These design elements and not using anything like kill streak bonuses, vehicles, destructible environments, heroes, etc give you a game more in line with the simpler times of Call of Duty 2. In the current form they will also need to get more servers online which does seem like something they are likely to do soon with the high sales. If you were missing the feel of some older FPS games this will likely appeal to you.
Well seems after all those modern and space FPS games, developers at last find out that taking games to sci-fi settings and lots of weird equipment will be tedious soon and they decided to get back where it all began! and it's lovely and unforgettable WWII settings in FPS gaming. BATTALION 1944 is another awesome and very well designed, balanced and challenging multiplayer FPS with WWII settings which in my opinion is one of the best games ever came out on this expertise. the gameplay is well balanced, charming and so much enjoyable which makes you entertained for hours and hours without noticing the pass of time! gunplay, weapon designs, environmental details are very great and authentic. the match making is also balanced and it's a really good thing for such a game, Visuals are pretty compelling and i can say for an Early Access title it's quite impressive too. so if have played games like BF1 or COD WWII, you will definitely find this game entertaining and enjoyable, and I can highly recommend it even at its Early Access phase!
Battalion 1944 reminds me of the early days of COD 2. It feels like an old-school, with great balance between the action and the involved strategy. The graphics are modern and the gameplay is solid, as it requires teamwork and skill for the best results, but right now the games are really unbalanced. That is due to the system not replacing anyone who leaves + the unstable servers, alongside a few bugs. But of course, it just launched, so we can't expect this to last forever. The devs are doing a great job with their game and the price is pretty reasonable for what it offers.
So, first of all, and in my opinion that's important information, this game is in Early Access stage, meaning it is more like playable alpha rather than full release (at the time of writing this review). Having that out of the way, let's talk about the game itself. It looks dull. If you want quick and simple description of this game, it's Call of Duty 2 multiplayer, only with slightly better graphics. It looks like after games' release that developers talk of "making influencial FPS that would inspire genre giants to reconsider and look at their slower approach to fps gameplay" was all just empty slogan. I mean, how can you say that when the game encourages bunny jumping with your aim unchanged in any way, shape or form? For now, it has serious matchmaking issues, you might wait minute or two for a match, but there will be times when you will wait 10-20 minutes for it. Add to it the fact that it's pretty much alpha with all the bugs, lack of balance and engine issues, and you have a game that doesn't have much future, especially when you have PUBG still dominating the charts. Overall, if you miss Call of Duty 2, just go play Enemy Teritorry instead of this. Matchmaking issues make this game unplayable, and for multiplayer game first days are the most important, because it's make or break time for the game and chance to get the audience. Sadly, the game fails.
