Brothers in Arms is another entry to a pretty good word war series. Right when you boot up the game you notice that the graphics are quite good. The colors are pretty and the textures are good but sometime dip. The story is what really makes the game so great. It is really deep and the game makes you care for the characters like the other games do. The sound is also what is great about this game. Each gun has a very specific sound, and you will probably after a while be able to pick them out by there sound. Overall this game is a excellent entry to the series, it is definitely worth sixty dollars but if this is your first time playing a game in the series you should rent it from GAMEFLY.
Sick FPS / small-squad sim (M1 grand still my fav)

Take this game for what it is. Its a strategy game in a FPS format. You are the LEADER of a small squad of multi-purpose troops. I stressed the leader becuase you are the Sgt. This game allows you to experience the battlefild first hand but also give orders under fire, support your team, out-flank the enemy, engage in lone-wolf "instances" throughout the game. If you are looking to take out hordes of Krouts on your own this is not the battlefield for you. This is the best war simulation/FPS currently available (yes, COD-5 will be sick but will it give you the ability to control the action like this?)
Well Brothers in Arms is a good game with solid gameplay, but it's no masterpiece. Some pros are: nice slow motion headshots, grenade blasts, and tank rounds. This will really make you cringe. You see the Germans arms and legs ripped from their body. Did I mention it's gory? Now some cons: graphics are bland with not much color, the characters lips don't match up when they talk, if you haven't played the first two games you might not understand what they are talking about in the cutsceans, at times the game can get boring, and the multiplayer just sucks. All in all though this game is probably a rental for you, unless you really like Brothers in Arms games.
