SummaryWonderful multiplayer game but could be better ...
The GoodMultiplayer. The Multiplayer mode is wonderful and really can't get very much better (but getting reduced lag in internet play ... which is due to bad netcode). There's airplanes, bombers, tanks, jeeps, trucks, bikes, torpedo boats, ships, zeppelins and helicopters - all ready to do whatever you want to do with them - some vehicles can even be used by two players (driver/pilot and gunner). The game has enormous maps with bases, buildings, walls, mountains, lakes, anti aircraft guns, artillery etc This game isn't the usual WWII game either (which you might understand, as it is some kind of alternate World War One setting ...), and really ... there isn't anything more wonderful than killing your enemies with an WWI-tank or bombing him away with an old nice bomber.
The BadThe single player mode ain't that interesting ... mostly extremely bad voice acting, no real briefing (which means, you don't really know what you should do --- you get a few objectives and not much more), the enemies ain't that smart (although i've seen worse) and you can't crouch (which i believe has been a FPS standard since System Shock or Duke Nukem 3D?). The building textures are (which is understandable as the game engine has to render quite big maps) extremely low-res and although there is plenty of buildings only a few of them may be entered and weapon sounds are mostly pretty lame (where the revolver sounds like fireworks ...) ...
