I beat this on easy the first time in three hours DIDN'T DIE ONCE I skipped normal and went straight to hard STILL DIDN'T DIE! If you love easy achievements and a fun 3 hours rent this

Pros: easy gameplay and achievements you learn a thing or two about WWII

Cons: too easy if you don't follow the sergeant you fail the mission bad graphics game is way too short cant run

Ok, Ill just start out by saying, this game, is pretty cool!!
A lot of people dont give it very good credit that it realy earns. Even though I completed it in 2 1/2 hours, its a great play threw. The guns are great, but the grenades are cheese, and not in a good way either. The main flaw I saw, was if you went 20 feet from your Sgt you have to follow, you have to restart to last checkpoint. I like to explore the maps, expetualy the beach heads.
Hope I helped, have a great day!! :D

Weak

How does a game like this even get created? How does Activision sign on to publish such an unpolished low-budget shooter. Half the game is focused around multiplayer...why? Activision also has CoD... like a History channel war documentary game is going to have the slightest chance to take even 1/2 of 1 percent of the market share away.

Sidenote---About 700 gamerpoints are also dedicated to online multiplayer, and since nobody in the world plays this online, you won't be able to get those.

Since you can't get a game of TDM going online, let's focus on this single player generic campaign that you can beat in a few hours.

For starters, I've played 100 shooters, and the shooting aspects here aren't that bad. It actually responds to your fingers, is smooth, and is not unblievably unplayably choppy like a lot of other cheap FPS. The graphics from a distance actually look pretty good, but up close it's like N64 Goldeneye bad.

The levels take only minutes to complete it seems, and even on hard difficulty, it's a joke. You mostly follow someone or a navigation point, so you know what straight line to follow. Objectives are simple at the very most and since you can't veer off to explore, you won't be getting lost. You can use a decent variety of guns, but they all sound the same. Enemy physics are funny at times, explosions are hilarious, and guys fall with ease at the spray of a Thompson.

Aside from that, you can choose to listen to the History channel war buff who narrates the battles while loading. They are just like on TV, and the film and facts shown during those parts are the best parts of the game. But I am just confused why History channel is making games... go flip the history channel or military channel on to get a better experience than this game.
