BEST WWII PS3 game to date

I saw the preview for this game on T.V. The commerical was one of the best I've seen for a Video game ever! The woman talking her saying in a chilling voice "itll be the last thing you'll ever see" was just about as powerful/moving as the eminem superbowl commerical. But anyway, I have played COD 3, World at War and Black-OPS (black-ops being the best in the series in my opinion as far as game play and story line" and I've played medal of honor airborne and frontline but none of them have the realistic action as well as historical accuracy as B.I.A Hells highway does. I never played the previous brothers in arms games for the PS2 but I wish I had (Not sure if my 120GB slim model is backwards compatible?) but this one beats all other WWII shooters without a doubt in every aspect except maybe some game play graphics but thats a close one with Airbourne. COD 3 graphics were so so and the story line was nothing like Hells Highway. If you watched te "Band of Brothers" mini series on HBO you know charaicters like "Colonel Sink" and others from the 101st airborne were real people and the actor from Band of Brothers must have done the voice for hells highway for sink cuz its dead on. I agree with the other person who said you get to know and care about the soilders your commanding. The story line is excelllent and the gameplay is perfect once you get the hang of it. I was looking into when the next one is coming out and got a bunch of different answers and all I could find was that they released a new one for the GD IPHONE? Whats up with that!? I want a new one for PS3 like tomorrow! They need to finish the story till the end of the war! This game is more then a game its a educational supmersive experince that helps you understand what emotions and pain our boys went through in Europe well fighting the Nazis. My grandpa did in Italy 10th Mountain division and this game helps me understand what he went through and this is why I love WWII games so much!

Sorry Or Not This Is The Review In Nutshell.

This Game Is For Gamers Looking For A Different Kind Of Shooter, Sorry COD & MOH Fans. The Game Is More Strategy Base Than A Straight Up Shooter Like The Other Billion & One WW2 Shooters. Your A Sergeant & You Tell Your Soldiers Where To Go & What Squads To Suppress, Just Looking & Holding The L1 Or Whatever You Please. What Shocker There Is Actually A Story Besides Killing Nazis, Nope! Sorry Not Possible That Would Actually Mean Some Game Comps. Give A $h.!T About Gamers Entertainment. Yes, Baker(You) Is Being Haunted By His Old Friend, You Now Cassper Obviously, No Wait! Oh No It's Leggett, A Soldier That Baker Put In Charge Of A Squad With Close Men To Everyone. Then They Die Under Leggets Watch, He Tells Baker. After He Hears What Happened Baker Said Never Tell Anyone About What Really Happened. Keeping Secrets Wasn't Leggetts Specialty As He Went Insane When Him, Baker & Other Soldiers Are Fighting Off Germans Trying To Break Through Hill 30. While Bakers Was Hit & Laying On The Floor Legget Could Not Get A Respond Through The Radio & A Few Moments Later Jumps Up The Ditch Yelling,"TAKE ME!". Like I Wrote Baker Is Haunted By Leggett, In Multiple Parts He Appears, He Is One Of The Best Easter Eggs I've Seen This Gen, You Will Not Understand Till You Play This Game How Good The Feeling Of Being Haunted. Ok, Back Leggett In His Final Moments When He Was Exposed To Enemies He Was Holding Bakers Pistol. The Pistol Is Believe By Soldiers To Be Curse As Everyone Besides Baker Die Who've Hold It. Small Part Of The Story But A Good Part To Be In The Story.
This Game Is Rated 10 Because Of The Amazing Story & Great Game Play. I Did Not Include To Rate This Game Lower Because Of The Non-Entertaining Multi. The Multi Is Not A Reason At All To Play This Game Single Will Player Will Be Certainly Entertain Much Longer.

Note The Mispelling Of H.E.L.L & Cas.per Was Bc Gamefly said It Was Innapropriate.
