Bad

It's not too bad

Overall the game is not that bad, but there are some aspects that are truly horrible. The AI is dumb as a rock, there are several situations where you are being lead down a path/trench and a bunch of enemies pop out or are already waiting for you. Now on halo, or COD you would get mowed down in a heart beat, but in this all you need to do is slowly aim and take them out one by one. Even on hard, it is difficult for you to die. As long as you don't stand in front an enemy turret or accidentally kill yourself with a grenade you will be fine. One other pitfall is you have to follow orders the whole time, you can't flank an enemy gun emplacement unless your CO tells you to, and he never does or if you fall too far behind your CO game over. The graphics aren't bad, and the voices could be better. The history side is kind of neat, but this is one game I glad I rented.

This game is by far the worst "shooter" game that i have played. Graphics are horrible. Not worth a rent or the 2hrs that it took to beat. Take my advice, rent Call of Duty or MOH.

The only reason that it has a 2 rating and not a 1 is that the game does provide a history lesson.

The Pacific war was this short?

I can't believe how fast i zipped through this game. I am also a bit disturbed by how many small inaccurate bits kept showing up in local and battle facts seeing as how history channel has their name on this travesty of a game.
