I've been syked for Brothers in Arms since I first saw it's trailer in June 2004. When I finally got it, an extreme feeling of excitment came over me. I knew I was in for something extrodinarie. Before I continue, let me just say I wasn't wrong at all in thinking this. After completing the game about an hour ago, i feel as though I have made friendships and also lost several. The men of Fox Company 502nd regiment of the 101st airborne come alive in Brothers in Arms. They aren't dumb ai bots running into walls and getting killed for not returning fire. They are smart, almost to the point of creepiness. Level after level I was continuely worrying about the welfare of my men. Not because I couldnt survive without them, but because I didnt want to survive without them. I wanted to see all of my men through to the end. Sadly not all of them can be saved and your always wondering who is going to die next. As you get closer to the end of the game you begin to feel that the rest of your "dozen" has a chance. The game's opening scene is intense with violence as well as profanity. It is brutal and sets the mood for the scene that follows. Don't go into Brothers in Arms thinking its another "Americans win everything" game. Many of the levels are sad and some moments are downright scary. If you've viewed, no, experienced and enjoyed the film Band of Brothers, this game will appeal to you. The story is so gripping I literally played it for 24 hours straight until I beat it. The gameplay in Brothers in Arms is solid enough to get use to fairly quick and both the game's sound and visuals are top notch. They obviously can't stand up completly to the Xbox version but I do believe a little more detail could have been put into the character models.Read more ›

I'm a WW2 buff and I've played all the WW2 games for the PS2 and this one just gives you the best feel among the others. I guess the plus points of this game is the authenticity and realism.

Things that are realistic:
1) You die real quick.
2) You need your squad to get things done.
3) Real tactics: suppress the enemy and flank them. A frontal assault will get you and your people killed even if it's just one German.
4) You're troops do not follow your orders 100%.
5) You have very limited ammo... you usually have up to 10 magazines / reloads. You have to pick weapons and ammo up along the way. This is realistic because most vests and belts in WW2 only have 8 to 10 pockets. And the ammo should match your weapon (a German SMG clip won't work with your Tommy Gun like in Medal of Honor or Call of Duty).
6) No health packs.
7) You are not a sharp shooter. Even if the crosshair is pointed to the enemy, you will miss it 80% of the time if you shoot too quick and the enemy is too far. If you use the zoom view, you will find the sights moving around and going off-target with every shot. (Games like Ghost Recon and Rainbow 6 hit 90% of the time no matter how far the enemy is).
8) Sound is authentic. Real gunshots sound like "Pops" instead of "Bangs". Grenade blasts don't set off big exposions, just a "Thud" and some smoke.
9) Decent maps. Most concole games only have one path. Although this game has linear maps, it gives you 2 to 3 alternate paths and a lot of shooting space.

Of course the game is not perfect...
The bad things:
1) Your troops stay in the open and get themselves killed.
2) Non-existent musical score. Although you won't hear music in real-life.

This game is a novel approach to WWII or war games. Instead of fighting your way alone, you are placed in charge of a squad of soldiers. This forces you to think not only of your own safety but of your squad as well. I liked this system a lot -- it's a lot more realistic and a lot more fun to play once you get used to it.

That said, the game only gets four stars from me because there are several areas that need improvement. For example, the game should allow you to choose your equipment before you begin each mission. Also, the targeting, while good, isn't top notch. The game designers tried to stimulate what happens when you try to shoot while running or from an unsupported positon, but they didn't quite make it (the targeting should not randomly jerk around but make a inverted fiqure 8 -- the more exertion the bigger the 8).

Having said all of that, I think this series has a lot of potential and I am really looking forward to the sequal.

The sweet smell of another WW II game. I bought this a while back. I hated it. I died too much.

Thats when I saw the brilliance.

This isn't Medal Of Honor ... one man destroys entire Nazi Empire and slays 30 000 Nazi soldiers with a handgun and a knife. No this is you and some guys killing lots of Nazis with TACTICS.

Now most WW II games involve rushing in and killing bad men, MOH im looking at you. It worked, it was fun. Then the smart people at Gearbox made a tactical game.

When I first got this fired up, I was an MOH lover. I rushed around the map in BIA (Brothers in Arms). I died. I tried again, the mass rush and kill. I died. I didn't like this one bit. It was too hard. MOH had warped the logic side of my brain so it was a snarling blood hungry fire loving beast.

But when you get playing the game is remarkably good. Your soldiers are smart most of the time. Other times they are complete pyschos, loving hot lead in their heads.

The gameplay is solid, if a little unresponsive and clunky. Ordering your soldiers around can be a pain in the ass, but it begins to work when you get experience. Enemy AI is really fierce too, one of the best i've seen in a while on PS2. They really are out to kill you, and will use cover to the best of its use.

The graphics are above average. Sometimes they appear a little ... loose. If thats the word. It doesnt look sharp. The soldiers look a little ... smooth. Its hard to describe. It might be the look they set out for but its not sharp.

The overall sound is good. Weapons sound good, nice and heavy. I don't remember much music when I was playing. Adds to the feel of WW II i guess.

Overall its pretty solid, if a little frustrating at points.

Graphics = 8/10

Sound = 8/10

Gameplay = 8/10

Lifespan = 6/10

Overal = 8/10
