“This review is for Earned in Blood. ”

This review is for Earned in Blood.
As you see from the above they have learnt nothing from the weaknesses of Hill 30. Still unplayable… Read Full Review

“I lusted after Brothers in Arms before I got it, and I...”

Written on: 10/07/2005 by Wandy (1 review written)

I lusted after Brothers in Arms before I got it, and I was not disappointed. The level of immersion is intense - especially when you're ducking for dear life behind cover while hot lead zips overhead and thanks into the grass beside you, throwing up mud and grass into the camera. Yes, it really does. And rain and blood hit the camera too, which is a nice touch.
The scenery is awesome, and although the explosions can seem suspect at times, you can actually see a realistic shockwave, which is… Read Full Review

“I reckon Brothers in Arms is a great game and worth...”

Written on: 11/04/2005 by zelda64 (1 review written)

I reckon Brothers in Arms is a great game and worth the cost. You'll like the gripping storyline and the graphics and its smooth controlling.

One of the problems is the enemies and their health. It takes a lot to kill them and the guns don't have enough accuracy.

In general the game is great and you should buy it if you don't have it… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/04/2005 by kentmulloy (4 reviews written)

Ok, I admit it I bought into the hype of Brothers in Arms just as you probably did too? Yes, the critics and gamers were all crying in protest at how we do not need another WWII shooter to flood the market. Even though, deep down I agreed, I was still hopeful that this game was going to be something special, after all, Ubisoft were spending millions at telling us all that it was going to be unlike anything we'd ever played before.

So the release day comes, I rush on down to my local games… Read Full Review

Glad to see another commented on the bad weapons simulation: especially the unrealistic rise and fall of the rifle while aiming. As I said, a soldier is trained to control breathing while aiming. No, the military advisor was either a phoney or too slap-dash on this one. Maybe UBISoft can post a patch to correct this?

Foolishly I bought Brothers In Arms Earned in Blood in the hope the game had improved. No, the unrealistic weapon wobble was still there, it was almost impossible to hit anything and it still took 3 shots to the head to kill the Germans. I gave up after Chapter 2. What was this developer playing at. I notice that they have disallowed me from posting a review on their website.

No, don't give up WW2. The scenario is not the important thing: it's the way it's done. Give us the Half-Life2 engine, with lots of sniper duelling between the great Russian snipers (many of whom were women) and the German and Allied aces.

Written on: 01/04/2005 by Heron (2 reviews written)


One expects the in Brothers in Arms map limits to have low fences etc. However you cannot get through open arches, jump over low grassy humps, ammo boxes or even a row of corpses.
Bad accuracy.
Its very hard to hit the enemy even at a scale-100 yards. You should be able to hit a body at 400 yards and a head at 100. The weapon rises with the hero's breathing: In real life you are taught to "breath in, squeeze, breath out". The sights should be even steadier in the crouch position.
Difficulty in… Read Full Review

Just to add to the German unfairness section: Their 2 inch mortar fires even faster than my infantry mortar platoon. One round a second? Come on, they would blow their heads or hands off doing that.

Got as far as Push Into Caretan. Here the map does not allow you to get near the Germans. They are impervious to bullets.
<br>Although your cowardly sergeant walks through a road barrier, you cannot.
<br>The game is impossible and I've junked it. DO NOT BUY THIS TRASH. Sorry.

Written on: 16/02/2005 by littlemissdrunk (44 reviews written)

I thought the Brothers In Arms game was quite good, the graphics, sound and lighting helped to create the mood and atmosphere for combat. The terrain is meant to resemble Normandy in 1944, it is quite realistic. I found it a little repetitive but a great game overall… Read Full Review
