Immersive and Accurate Simulation
'Brothers-in-Arms' is an excellent simulation of WWII squad level combat. It is not really a shooter though it is listed as such here. It is really a simulation that attempts to duplicate the difficulty of actual WWII combat. Shooting is difficult. You must carefully aim and plan your offensive moves to ensure success. Unlike shooters like 'Call of Duty', this is no gore fest of constantly mowing down the Nazis. One needs to make good use of your fire teams and reconnaissance to beat almost every scenario. BIA is closest to the game 'Close Combat: First to Fight' than other generic shooters and it may be frustrating for some players who are used to video console like shooters. But if you give it a chance, you reward will be to discover what may be the most accurate WWII single player combat simulator out there. Anyone who has actually experienced real combat will recognize the reality of accurately portrayed combat here.
The scenarios are based on real events and places and the developers have kindly included a large amount of background material and photos to support the action. Be sure to look up the unlock codes on the web to see them all.
'Earned in Blood' the second included game, has better user controls than the original game 'Road to Hill 30'. Too bad that Feral didn't do a rewrite for consistency.
