Summary

Excellent world-war-two shooter, though not as good as the first.

The Good

The game looks fantastic, even with low detail settings - it's very scalable, and can run on older machines. The sounds are just awesome - if your windows aren't shaking from all the mortar fire, then your speakers aren't loud enough! The combat chatter that both friends and enemies will shout really adds to the atmosphere, and the weapons look and feel highly realistic. This truly feels like a war.

The Bad

There just aren't enough missions. Just as the game feels like it's reaching its climax, it stops. Multiplayer is also somewhat flawed.

The Bottom Line

This is a very awesome World War 2 shooter, and in my opinion, is the standard by which all further WW2 games should follow.
