If you're anything like me, you're a COD fanatic, but due to the late release of COD World at War, i was in need of a quick fix for an intense WWII game. I must have talked to at least 15 Gamestop employees trying to get some feedback on this game. I spent the ***** dollars, praying that i wouldn't have to return it the next day. I got home thinking i was not gonna be disappointed, but sadly BIA Hell's Highway let me down. Sadly, it was not all it was cracked up to be. Don't get me wrong, the storyline tops any WWII game i've played, even in the COD community. I have not seen a greater storyline. They were very accurate on the events that occurred during that time period, but as i played on, it was more and more repetitive. I mean once you have played COD4, no other game that's out right now will compare or even come close to the graphics or the gameplay of Modern Warfare. Sadly i can't recommend this game to anyone who is new to the FPS experience. It's not worth the ***** dollars.
Rated 9 out of 10 by tuckboarder I Love this game
This game has a lot to offer with a few minor glitches. The cover system made the game for me, if there wasn't one, you would die a whole lot more, the squad controls seemed a little more of a chore than a fun part of the game. I like the multi player more than the campaign though. It is a hybrid of a lot of things, it sort of mixes gears, rainbow six vegas 1-2, the explosives of mercenaries 2. But you have no respawns every round so you only get one try. The best part of campaign though has to be the action camera, the game slows down and you watch the bullet enter and exit their head, or the grenade or tank shell blow them in half. The multi player's weapons are okay though so don't expect call of duty 4 style guns, you get a choice between 6 guns on each team, either standard guns like an smg or an assault rifle, or rifle, and special you can have a sniper, LMG, or a bazooka. So there you have this is the best world war two game i've ever played, and i hope you give it a try.
Rated 9 out of 10 by CalFan Brothers in Arms:HH- Great game
This game is a pretty good game. The storyline is great, excellent dialogue. It makes you feel like you were there at some points. Also this game has pretty good graphics from the 3rd person view, but its lacking that good 1st person view that some other games have like COD4. This game mainly involves tactics anyways. You cant just run and gun in this game which i think is what makes this game stand out among others. You need to be quick and responsive as a leader and thats what you need to succeed in this game as well. The only complaint that i have about this game is the online. First of all its hard to find games anyway, but when you do its not very fun either. There's only one game mode which already brings it down. The game mode is kind of like a territories. They could have had Team Deathmatch which would have made it just a bit better, but also its laggy and what not. If you like single player, and WWII then this is the game for you. Oh and another plus is the addition of the Cover System.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Delta Operator A game for thinkers...
Brothers in Arms: Hells Highway focuses on the main character, Staff Sergeant Matthew Baker, a paratrooper of the 101st Airborne Division during Operation Markey Garden. During the Operation, Baker, seems to have Post Traumatic Stress. *Spoiler!* In one scene Baker shoots the wall thinking Germans were all around him. Graphics are excellent. I was really surprised when you crouched down, you could see your leg as it gives you a more first person view of things. Shadows and the landscape are just really beautiful. Now to the combat. The only really disappointing part of the game is the controls. Imagine you are playing Call of Duty, imagine those controls and add on some extra buttons for squads. You heard me squads, if you played other Brother in Arms games you will know what I'm talking about. Squads are key for you to control. But several missions can just be comprised of one sniper section and about 3 tanks sections. So if you want a break from the pray and spray Call of Duty and want a more thinking FPS this is it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by str8 stuntin954 GREAT GAME!!!!
I really really enjoyed playing this game, this is the best story line for a ww2 shooter ever!! call of duty has no story its just running around and shooting people, this game is great because your squad members are in the game with you so you get drawn into the game and the story,the game is very realistic with excellent gore and limbs blow off when hit by grenades and bazookas, you can use you squads to flank the enemy and help you take them down,i cant tell you how good this games story is!!! I am anxiously waiting on the next brothers in arms game to be released, ALTHOUGH i was greatly disappointed in the xbox 360 multiplayer, the graphics online are not good and it is very grainy and lags out a lot,AND....you can only play capture the flag?why would a ww2 game only let you play capture the flag?they need to at least add team sharpshooter,when i was online all the guys said the same thing i did " the game is awesome....the online sucks!!" BUT i love the game itself!!!! i would recommend renting but it takes awhile to beat this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by penguingod510 Love it!
This game is awesome! I loved how it was and I cant wait for the next one. The graphics are good except the online has a little problem with the graphic portion of it. the online is fun but it has a problem with the lag that hopfully gets fixed by ubisoft. now for the storyline. it was amazing and filled sooo many gaps that i was impressed. you start off as matt baker and you command a squad of men as you fight the fight in market garden and some of the cut scenes tell of the previous games. the gameplay is amazing as you control your squad, it makes it a strategy shooter. If you are good at placement of men then you will get used to this game real quick. The best part of this game I think is when sometimes when you shoot a german in the head, it will go into slow motion and shows his head get blowen off!!!!!!! well, this is a good game and I would recomend it to anyone who likes strategy, shooters, or both.
Rated 6 out of 10 by jrodrg Older versions for regular xbox are much better
Where should I start? I'm a huge WW2 game fan first of all. I've been waiting for this game to come out since the last game for the original xbox. I will say I'm somewhat disappointed. There are a ton of movies during the story line which can last up to 5-7 minutes. You die after a few shots if you don't stay behind cover (pressing a separate button to do so). When you place your men behind cover they don't always seem to follow your instructions. You cannot order your teams to assault anymore like the previous Brothers in arms (unless I'm unable to find the command). I haven't beaten the game yet, but the same guns you get are rather boring to me. Some of the game is very repetitive to me. The graphics are amazing, I'm running the game on 1080i and the graphics are probably better than some of the other stuff I've played on the 360. Overall, I'd rent the game for the weekend first, then go from there.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Dolphfan84 Epic adventure
Ive played Brothers in Arms since the first first one came out for the original xbox and i can honestly say this one outdid the last two. First of all i think the dig in system and destructable cover were both much appreciated in making it feel like a real war. the storyline stays as it always has and basically sets the emotion of the game and makes me not want to skip the cutscenes for once. the graphics for the most part were incredible. it still bothers me though that the character's hair is plastered onto their head but other than that and a few environment problems the graphics were amazing. the main problem i experienced is the controls. occasionally i would find a glitch that would send me on the other side of my cover no matter if i was on the ground or in the air. one time it was an unfortunate situation because i was going against a tank. other times the dig in system would not respond correctly at first but they were both something that u can work around. Overall a must have for any fans of Brothers In Arms or for anyone who loves hard, very hard first person shooters.
Rated 10 out of 10 by shooter45 great
I love this game a lot. I have beaten this game I got like 4 days ago I really like it. The game has tons of achievements I got mostly all of them I think. Also you can command a bazooka team, Mg team, Assault team and a base of fire team. I like it because it is challenging and addicting once you start playing you probably wont be able to stop. Another good thing is the story it is very good. And when throw a grenade around a german in slow-mo their body parts will fall of same with a headshot. And at some parts you are in a tank when you stand up there is a mg on the top or if you are about to die you can hide in the tank. And it has a long campaign. Last you can steal a machine gun if you kill a german behind it. But it does not look better then cod 5 or gears of war 2 I do not have either of those games but it does not seem better. So overall if you like ww2 buy this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by gennisis call of duty allways beat brothers in arms.... Until now
Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway is a game that needs to be experienced. Nothing like this hs ever come to a World War II shooter. Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway puts you in control of Matthew Baker a Sergent in command of the 101'st airborn. If you've played other games in this series you will be familier with Baker. And let me tell you right now I personally hated the other Brothers in Arms games. When I picked you this game I was a little skeptical of how good this was going to be based on the other games in the sieries I had played. this game is above and beyond, the graphics and animations are so much better, yet it still has that brothers in arms sense of gameplay. Let me tell you something right now. This story is the most emotionally attatching game I have ever played. Sometimes I found it emotianally hard to continue playing, it gets that intense. And dont thing im just a soft harted person who crys at thing easily. I can play fallout 3 being the bad guy in every way possible and think its fun. This game will make you realize what it means by hells highway. Remember September '44.
