Ever since it came out, Hour of Victory has probably been the most criticized game ever to grace the Xbox 360. I love WW2 shooters, and I really wanted to see if this game really did deserve ones and F's. After playing it, I don't think it's that bad, but its close. Here's Pros and Con's (Hint: A lot of cons)

Pros (there aren't many)
-Some mindless shooting fun. I guess...
-Hilarious physics engine (bodies flop and bounce and spaz)
-Mildly interesting locations such as castles
-Generic, but effective music
Cons (expect a lot)
-Broken A.I.
-Terrible graphics
-Plenty of bugs
-Boring level design
-Inacurate hit detection
-Sniper Rifles are impossible to use
-Horrid tank controls
-Another WW2 shooter (sigh)...
-Gimmicky Stealth, Sniper, and Commando classes
-Framerate Problems
-Bland Story

As you can clearly see, this is not a good game. Only as much as rent it if you are the most obsessive WW2 shooter fan in the world. Believe me, I wanted to enjoy this game, but it was impossible to enjoy.

I've played many of the shooters out there. From MOH: Frontline to Halo to whatever. But I honestly have to say that this is the worst shooter EVER!!! I'm a bit of an achievement freak on the 360, and this game has easy achievements, but i couldn't bare to sit through wave after wave of idiot soldiers. I left the game with many achievements still to gain. And there idea of trying to control the whole "play the way you want to" thing is stupid. I can't tell you how many times I couldn't perform a particular task cause I didn't have the right character. DON'T RENT THIS GAME!!!!

Hour of Victory-

Sceptically about the game due to the many "Medal of Honor" FPS titles and their success, the bar had been set high for all the WWII era throw back FPS games. Although the games graphics deliver, the controller and game play are meager at best. Sluggish is the word that best describes HOV's character movement and overall game play. I'd recommend this title to those who have stress to release, or time to kill. "Medal of Honor" is far more enjoyable to play, despite the repetitious us of missions,characters,weapo- ns, etc.....

Cheers,
The "BottomLine"
