Actually , its pretty cool,
Although you need a pretty hefty pc to get anything decent outta it and when you have more than 2 enemy's on screen at once the fps goes down the toilet to unplayable crappy levels. It does have its charms ,would like to see a patch to improve the severe drop in frames but i can live with it
You get to parachute jump into any area of the map , ( there are five skill drops to discover on each map ) like atop a rooftop or through a window or atop a greek column) which adds to replay factor
You can head for green smoke areas for all you noobs out there or head for the red areas( from the neat briefings) for a full on nazi gun fest battle from the outset....
As you progress through the levels which can for the most part have their objectives tackled in the order you want ( until the last bit of each level which is forced on you till the end but thats a good thing cause it builds suspense )
The weapons are pretty meaty and once proficient you get to bolt on improvements like bigger magazines or faster reloading blah blah
Just made it to the fourth level , and i will certainly be going back to tackle the levels differently , making it easier or harder as i see fit
Good old melee attack is still there and does take a couple a bashes to crack some skulls which is cool
So to sum up , if you like your FPS , with a WW2 flavour get it
Ok just finished it ( single player ) but i'll go through it again and get more of the secret landings and upgrade different weapons..( the more you use a gun or nade a progress bar goes up and you start to get little upgrades , these upgrades stay with you through your entire campaign so it doesn't disapear after each level
Played the Multiplayer a couple of times , last night i was playing the Operation Neptune Map ( D-Day ) with big NAzi bunker on top of a hill and gunho yanks starting at a farm building ( but can parachute in anywhere) which is slightly changed from the single player ...
But the graphics seem toned down in quality and im still getting crappy lag which kinda spoils things ....it really isnt fluid gameplay at all.
