It's just like Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30. It features gritty action, believable characters, and great gunplay. It doesn't really change much or do anything new. Regardless, the new campaign is a welcome addition to my beloved Brothers in Arms series. If you liked the first one, you're bound to like this one. It's often on sale and very inexpensive. I heartily recommend it. 9/10
Brother in Arms: Road to Hill 30 was a big success and Gearbox Software inmediately started develop another expantion of the first game called: Earned in Blood. Now you can experience the same story of Road to Hill 30, but with eyes of Joe Hartsock and his squad. With new locations and now mates, you take a step once again in the cruel war to lead your squad to victory. I recommend this game if you a tactical approach instead of more of arcade shooters. Recommended.
Starting right after the first Brothers In Arms finished, you get to witness another great game from the series. It still got that realistic authenticity the first one had and it still has those mechanics the first had. They didn't disappoint with this one either. I remember I first played Earned In Blood back in the PS2 days in a demo and it caught my attention. I used to play back then the Medal of Honor and the old Call of Duty games, but this one still had elements that neither of those series had. The environment, the shooting mechanics, the attachment the game makes you have towards the characters that you don't wanna see them die, the 'commanding the squads' addition, it's all there. Let's say you came to check Earned in Blood after finishing Road to Hill 30... yes, it's similar! It won't disappoint you. Earned In Blood got the Skirmish Mode, which Road To Hill 30 didn't have. It adds more gameplay and challenge to it. There's no way I wouldn't recommend this one to a fan of shooter/WWII games. It's an old gem (yeah, I guess I can say now that a 2005 game is an old gem) and it shouldn't be missed! My rating for Earned In Blood: 94/100
Brothers in Arms: Earned in Blood for me is undoubtedly one of the best FPS that have been created as much for its realism as for its mechanics of game it hurts that this great saga has stopped to take new titles and is a pity that there is not As long as it is called as a call of duty or battlefield, with this saga step as well as with the saga of medal of honor since they are good sagas of FPS but to not have as much publicity as COD or Battlefield with the time are forgotten, the Truth is that I would like to see a new title of this saga with the technology of now
