Brothers In Arms: War Stories
Great game for DS
I'll start off with challenge, I gave it a five because there are three challenge modes and five is about the middle one. I gave the controls a ten because I caught onto them within the first level. I also gave the graphics a 10 because they are the second best I've seen for DS but they are still excellent for DS. I gave interface a nine because everything stays together (example:the sound and the screen stay together). I gave the responsiveness a seven because sometimes if you try to sneak up on a machine gun nest around a corner it will stop for a second and you will be dead. I gave the sound a seven because it will have random shooting or explosions when they're not anything around you to make the sounds. I gave the storyline a nine because it is not how a soldier would be positioned in Europe then randomly go to Africa then back to Europe. Overall I would totally recommend this game to a war game lover or shooter who has a DS.
too easy but fun
what happend to the story all the other brothers in arms have A great story but not this one its still a good game really easy I can beat it on hard in one day its fun though best shooter for DS I have ever played the controls are great their are three campaings normandy tunis and battle of the bulge the normandy campaing is the best the longest and funnest the ai is ok when you play it it semes a little bit scripted I do think you should buy this game if you like world war two games or you just like shooters the graphics are good for the ds if you played the other brothers in arms games this one does not have squad based commands at all Matt baker and Joe hartsock are not in it it doesent really feel like a brothers in arms game but all together its an good game buy this game
Though Brothers in Arms is a fun game to play, it does come with its disadvantages like any other games. It takes a bit (not too long) to figure out how to properly aim/run/walk your soldier. You click the "Left" button to shoot, the cross pad to move back and forth, and your stylus to aim/show the direction of which you are walking. It took me a couple levels to actually get used to this style of gaming, though it really satisfies the craving of an action/shooting game lover. I was originally going to get Call of Duty 4 for my DS, but they didn't have it available at my GameStop store. Either Way, I'm glad I made this purchase. As gamers, we must realize that war isn't this fun in real life (of course) so be careful on what you learn from games like these. They are merely simulations.
I have played through the European version of this game, and let me assure you, this is THE game for shooting on DS. It's the first game to give you real war, one of the latest to push the graphical barriers of the DS, and it's overall amazingly strategic considering what you have grown to expect with the latest DS 3rd parties. I cannot stress enough the importance of playing this if you have a DS. And if you don't, this game will potentially change your view of the DS entirely. I personally don't enjoy most shooters, and even I was hooked from the second I began playing. More than anything, this game is one of the games that will pave the way for great future releases. With the release of this and Ninja Gaiden developers will begin to see the DS for the potential it has as a system for older teens and adults. I love platformers, but we need variety and this game shows us a new future for the DS.
This game looks great! Panzer Tactics DS was supposed too be the first frontline war game for the DS but they kept holding off on releaseing probally do too makeing it. So this game gets the title. I will almost definetlly have it and play it for a long time, War Games are really the only video games I can beat. So I give it a thumbs up. P.S It looks like some preety good graphics
This game looks good but...............
This game does look good but i think EA should make a medal of honor ds, or Activision make a call of duty ds, or nintendo make a starfox ds(Not like the one they already have, one like Star fox assult). what about tekken ds or Resident evil ds. Ok, not those two so much.
realy makes me mad that theres no wifi im gonna get the game anyways. they shouuld make a counter-strike for the ds. now that would be a realll game
Ok for those of you who are comparing mariokart ds and pokemon to this game...STOP!!! those are two COMPLETELY DIFFERENT genres of games, and one cannot compare them to brothers in arms. How could you compare a pokemon game to a ww2 shooter? How could you compare a kart-racing game to this? you just cant. The only thing you really could compare this game to is metroid hunters, because its also a shooter, and since metroid has wifi, i still think its the best choice out there. But if you want a ww2 shooter, chech this game out cuz i think it'll be pretty good even though there is no wifi.
Is the gameplay really all that?
It may have extremely good graphics, but it does not have EGGS. EGGS stands for extremely good gameplay and sound. It is not a good game. Think about it. Does it really have good gameplay. Ihave heard so much about wi-fi, mutiplayer, graphics, and the vehicles you ride, but what about the gameplay? Does it live up to be a good game. The game is what matters most and i havent been convinsed by anyone that the gameplay is good. I say a preview on a videogame tv show and the gameplay didn't look that good but it did look easy. Just think about it. Is the gameplay really all that?
Brothers in Arms DS preview
I have been looking forward to the release of this game for many months now. The screenshots that I have seen in magazines and on the computer look amazing! I couldn't believe those were DS graphics! On top of that, the game will incorporate the ability to drive jeeps and tanks. Also, the touch screen will be used to hurl grenades, change weapons, and who knows what else! Lastly, the thing that absolutely blew me away was the fact that it will include multiplayer for up to four people!!! Overall, I think that Ubisoft has a winner on their hands.
