Rated 1 out of 10 by freaka piece of crapp
this game is horrible i dont know how any body could stand this game... the sounds are crappy and the people just stand there when you shoot them and in like the third mission in the castle when you have to hide in the drain pipes or whateverthe germans will spot you if you even bump the control stick they shoot and kill you because the response of the game is so bad when you release the prisoner he just follows you around AND SHOOTS NOTHING!!!!!!! then the ammo rus out and like al you can get is a 98K and that shoots so slow that even the enemies can kill you. when you kill the tanks in a north african mission the tanks shoot you immediatly when they turn the corner and all it takes is one shot from an enemy and you die when the blood fills your screen it nearly blinds you and you cant find any where to hide and they kill you even if you do manage tofind somewhere to hide because the enemies pop out of nowhere and will kill you from behind even if they are that slow
Rated 7 out of 10 by WW2 Anytime Kind of Guy A pretty good game.
This game has many pro's but still has a few con's against it. the graphics, sound, and story are pretty good, but certain features could have been added to make this better. One such thing is that the game could reload for you as soon as you run out of ammo on any of your weapons; this would have saved my life a couple of times. Another way this game could have been made better is by making it a little more like Wolfenstein's bloody parts. Although that would probably made it a rated M game; it would be better. If they also gave you hints as to which character to use on each level it would be easier to win each level. On the back of the box it says that if you can see it you can drive it; so i think they should have put more vehicles into the game and made a wider environment to drive them around in without bumping into walls. However it still has a good challenge and pretty good graphics, so if you like WW2 games I would think about getting it.

how could midway do this? a freaking tracphone is more advanced than this game.the graphics are great (the people look terrible but the enviroments look pretty good) but oh my... the A.I is the worst i have ever seen. Call of Duty4 for a cell phone has more brains in it than one of the Germans you kill. they just stand there and wait to die. when they got shot they always scream the same and when you die it like zooms out and somewhat blurs it out. as if they didn't want an M rating or something. the online is just as bad, and when we tried it there was only 270 people in the world playing. the story is confusing. although i do like fighting in N. Africa instead of France for a change. i just go this for the achievements and the points but hated the game itself. i bet anyone who worked on this game was fired by Midway once the Gamespot review came out. while the N. Africa levels looked great, the Bavarian alps looked quirky. plus the enemies flop like a rag doll after they have been shot... it's a mess. avoid this game. don't make the mistake i did.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Sad.But.True Horrible...
Didn't really think much about this game, I said to myself "Hey, it has shooting in it, might as well try this out." I made the wrong mistake. Horrible game...All I have to say...The people you kill just stand there and they wait to die...The graphics were good though, that was the only thing good about the game...Everything else is just plain bad. Didn't really pay attention about the storyline after I got through the first level. After I beat this game I cried because I wasted some money purchasing this game when I could of bought another game! I hope the person who had this idea to make this game got fired. This was an absolute horrible game. I just wanted to get the achivements, that is the only reason I kept on playing the game, I did not care for anything else. Words of advice, DO NOT PURCHASE THIS! IF accidently you buy this game and can not return it, DESTROY IT! Thank you for your time.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Guy Persons Played the demo....very unimpressed
I was very disappointed at the demo, after waiting for the download to finish I couldnt wait to try this shooter. I think it was pretty cool with the fact that you can pick three different classes before the mission....but thats were the fun ended. Graphics were decent at best for a game in the 2nd year of the Consoles life span, but the gameplay and enemy A.I was just atrocious. Controls were sluggish at best and visually there is nothing going on unlike CoD3. Im not expecting the absolute best WWII shooter, but I guess I has some wishful thinking for this one. I know this is also just a Demo, there are probably some kinks and bugs still in its current state, but if this is the Final version of the game, I will definately avoid this title....A definate must rent for anyone who really wants to try a, mediocre at best, WWII FPS.
Rated 1 out of 10 by ilikepie219 Hour of Victory
I think that this is a terrible game. First of all, it is very short. Second, there is one part that is impossible to get past that is only on the second level. The only good thing is that it has good graphics. Everything else is TERRIBLE. I wouldn't pay ** for this game. There are only good guys in the first level. After that, you are on your own. 5 minutes after I got this game, I was mad because I wasted ** ******* on this game. Also, the artificial intelligence is awful. You can walk up to an enemy and they will just stand there until you kill them. The difficulty in this game is choppy. Some levels are hard and some are very easy. I still haven't beaten this game. I tried the last part of the last level about 5 times until I just gave up so I went and played COD 4.Don't make the same mistake I did by buying this game.
Rated 0 out of 10 by palms maybe next time...but i hope not
I am going to say what everyone who has played the demo already knows: simply not good at all. I really don't like to critisize games so I will point out it's positive attributes(and things that are notable for better or worse); It looks pretty nice, it's got that soft flat look that is typical of 3rd party UE3 games, you get an inordinate amount of grenades that you can throw quickly, it is hard to get lost in the small chlausterphobic area, the germans are easy targets, you get three characters that preform similarly, the poor voice acting could lift the spirit of a wanna-be actor, the demo does help potential buyers save their money for something else.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Nomad on the move Epic Fail
To all Xbox 360 in the word who want an amazingly awesome first person shooter. I have something important to tell you all, do not buy Hour of Victor. It is probably the worst Xbox 360 shooter next to Raven Squad. There is no Story whatsoever. You just choose between the 3 different characters before a mission, play the mission, and skip to a completetely different scene that probably had nothing to do with the previous mission. The enamy AI are completely off their guards. They just stand and wait to die 85 percent of the time. Its like they are posing for there completely odd death's in a movie scene. Now the Graphics are the only aspect of this game that do have some shine. The details and enviorments are well detailed but there arent many destroyable enviorments. The sound effects are not good at all. In one North Africa mission, you hear constant falling airplane whizzes or something like that which makes no sense at all. It sounds like the sky is raining planes from an emp. I dont even want to talk about the voice acting but i will have to. In the Scorched Earth North Africa Campaign Mission, you have to blow up tanks with a tank and when you do, the British soliders in your tank say 'hooray- yay' which completely destroyed my ears because it sounded so incorrect. Thats my review of Hour of Victory or as it probably should be named, 'Hour of Defeat Today'.

C'mon people this game sucks 100%,Look at the game play and look back at Soldier of Fortune.Its the same fake game,the only thing is that the name is different and the story mode.Nothing is better than Rainbow six Vegas,Call Of Duty 2 and 3..etc...If people are gonna make games be more realistic about it.How about a game based on Sadam and Afghanistan,Something like Conflict desert storm but more graphical and alot better...C'mon I want a war game that its gonna drive me crazy.Not some stupid game that its gonna make me take it back the same day.If im gonna pay 60 dollars I better get my money's worth..
Rated 0 out of 10 by Rusty83 Not sure about this...
I played the demo for this game and was very disapointed. It just reminded me of another typical WWII Call of Duty, Medal of Honor FPS game. I was not impressed with it. Controls were horrible...clicking the right thumbstick to bring up your gun is a horrible idea. Why not the left trigger LIKE EVERY OTHER GAME! It always messed you up. Its hard to control your character when moving around. I know its just a demo but the game is coming out with in 2 weeks....they better do some major changes. I was looking forward to this game, but not so sure.
