This game is mediocre in my opinion. The graphics are good, weapons are ok, shooting and controls are good, although the run function is a huge pain to keep down for extended periods of time. Either that or the soldier is really out of shape.
What really bugs me and annoys me the most is how dumb the friendly AI is. I am playing the game on hard setting and you have to keep replaying the same parts over and over again since it's basically you vs the nazis or japanese. Your guys don't do squat, they randomly shoot around without hitting anything. It also adds to the excitement when every single enemy is gunning for you. Heck, they will run past your guys and run towards you as if you have a huge target painted on your chest. If the developers would have balanced this issue out, the game would have been stellar. That's why Rainbow Six is so good. Your guys are just as capable as you are.
It's worth a rent, just play it on Normal setting or it becomes too repetitive of a game.

Well folks it is back to world war II, (sigh) another WWII game. Looking past that, this game isn't too bad. The AI (of the enemies at least) is on par with some of the greatest military tacticians. Friendly AI I could say is very close to the A-team, usually 4 people in the front firing thousands of bullets to hit nothing.
Now on to game play. The game has a very good story line, and co-op story mode, however that alone can not make up for the unbalanced AI and grenade indicators which only work when they to.
If you play on getting this game for multiplayer nothing else then I would very highly recommend it. However single player (non co-op) is lacking.
I love military shooter games, and I love the Call of Duty series. This particular game tho seemed short and it wasn't that difficult. I expected it to be "more". Instead there were just more people to kill. Which of course I didn't mind lol I would recommend it. Mainly for the Online Play, since I finished the game in a little over 5 non consecutive hours in total. But overall it was fun. I would rent it opposed to buying it though.
