What is Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30? This is an unusual FPS, whose action takes place during the Second World War. However, this is not the typical Call of Duty, Battlefield or Medal of Honor. Here each of the soldiers has its own personality, appearance, weapon, behavior - it is something truly amazing. Here you have to think, you can not run and shoot because it just would not work. Here we have units of soldiers under command. This game shows the true brutality of WWII, definitely worth the attention, for every fan of FPS or FPP as well as WWII fans. I highly recommend!
Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 was one of the first video games I ever owned. I absolutely adored it. It's a gritty fps that takes place in WWII France. I can't say enough to adequately get across how fantastic this game is. The characters seem real; they express emotion and coping mechanisms in order to deal with the realities of war. The story is rich and compelling which features a lot of reflection from the protagonist as he leads his squad against the Nazis. Finally, the gameplay is great. Giving your squad commands in the middle of a firefight is stressful and fun. The guns feel heavy and responsive. Taking cover is a must if you want to survive. And the atmosphere is very dreary and oppresive. 9/10
Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 was one of the few FPS shooter games I played in the PS2, along with Medal of Honor and Call of Duty, and even today, Brothers in Arms is still the best when mentioning about war in that era. This game gives you a different perspective about war and you must learn and experience what happened during WWII and how the people that fought make it back home. Instead of arcade shooter with aiming, you got more of a tactical and strategical approach in the game as you're a squad leader and you must guide you and your squad across the battlefield of hell. Recommended.
If you're a history buff and want your first person shooter to feel somewhat refreshing and be something different than Call of Duty or Medal of Honor, this will be right up your alley. It's a team based FPS with some strategy game elements. While the shooting part doesn't need any introduction, since it's as basic as FPS goes, the tactical element of the gameplay is interesting - you have tactical pause and there you decide what your comrades do, flank, shoot, run, whatever you want and need. It makes this game much more engaging and requires some thinking. Let's be honest, it's an old game, so the graphics don't look amazing and hitbox on enemies is incredibly cheap, because back when this game was released cover-based gameplay was something new, so enemies are pretty much invincible behind cover, even if only their foot is under it, your perfect headshot won't register, because the game thinks enemy is still behind cover. What makes this game really shine is that it's not another WWII shooter that lets you play another D-Day (and back in the day, there were lots of them doing the same events) and accuracy. Developers actually took care and even asked ex-colonel of US Army to check if the game is accurate with everything. Pretty good game, but be prepared because it's old, so don't expect all of the graphical bells and whistles today's technology has. For this price, it's really worth it.
This right here is one of the finest shooters and one of the best WWII games you will ever play. The series, fortunately, didn't go bad like other series did, and all 3 games are a great gaming experience. You feel like you're really in the war you're playing. The names and gameplay it's all from the real events that happened, as far as I know. You get attached sooner or later with the characters in the game, feeling like you don't wanna let them down and get them killed. The mechanics of the game are quite... real. I mean, about the shooting, you don't just spray your gun and get them all killed like it's nothing. It has its way of being realistic. The length of the campaign is about... 9 hours, I think? Depends on the difficulty and how you play. There is also extra stuff you can unlock throughout the game and stars that judge how well you went. If you wanna collect everything, it adds, even more, replayability. The game environment is well made and captures, as I said, the authenticity of the actual events. This is something noteworthy to include here, that's why I repeat that. If you're into shooter/WWII games, this game or generally the trilogy of Brothers In Arms is a MUST for your collection.
