First off this is my first review, so I will break it down in 2 categories, reason to play the game and reason to not play the game.
Reason to play- The alternative WWII scenario is awesome, their is a good story hidden under the gameplay that is interesting to history buffs or people with active imaginations. Weapon designs are creative.
Reason not to play- Dated graphics with a lot of glitching and slight freezing, very slow character movement with horrible aiming sensors. I cannot stress how bad the character movement is. There is nothing to compare it too except maybe imagine being stunned in a COD game and that is how the character moves throughout the whole game, even after adjusting the settings in the menu. The aiming in this game is horrible as well. Shooting an enemy that is moving from side to side is nearly impossible, I tried leading them and I tried shooting them dead on neither worked. There are times where there is no instruction as to what you are supposed to do and I would spend twenty minutes running around an empty map after a battle untill a cut scene finally triggers to progress the story.
Overall I wanted to like this game, the story peaked my interest but the game felt broken with all of the problems and my final verdict is to PASS on the game. It's not worth the frustration of dealing with the game mechanics to try to get the achievments.
turning point is a what if story. even thought you get to do stuff like blow up tanks, the levels seemed nearly impossible to finish. The games graphics werent to bad but sometimes it is very blurry when major stuff is happening. The first level is my most favorite level because you get to throw an enemy from a building. The mp50s barely have any ammo when started out with. It was nearely impossible to destroy hordes of enemies because of low ammo. Some objectives is very confusing and hard to find. I started having trouble when i started out in london. I could not get into a single building because when you land there are machine gun turrets and gaurds on the walls aiming at your sorry face. I found a sniper rifle when i reached the base of where the atomic bomb was. It was really hard to kill enemies because there was a lot of movement when i aimed at the enemies. Its like the enemies are like gun assasins that was specificly trained to kill you. The best part in the whole game is when you assasinate the new president who is a german ... spy. I would not rent nor buy this game. Take my advice!

I would have been highly upset if I payed as much as $20 for this game. (I got it for 9.99) There is a few levels that are almost like mazes and fustrate you really badly. The game also had several glitches where you would get stuck and couldn't move or a character that needed to move for the story to advance would freeze. It is the only game that forced me to look up the walk through online just to find out I was having trouble because that character was froze (some scientist you are supposed to talk to). The only thing good about the game was the storyline, but that was short.
