I played this game series since "soldiers heroes of wwii". Then play faces of war, men of war etc (some of them i already own a retail copy and buy from steam recently to support them)
I mostly play story line mission and It's a quite bad game when u compare the past.
Most of time, you are both out-gun and out-number, you have to get everything on battefield to complete your mission.
Some of them, like AT gun, mortar, are esstential to complete mission. If you are unlucky, it will be destroy by AI (like off-map artillery, AT grenades, tanks) that force you to restart the mission.
Some map are specially made, you can't kill enemy in a safe way such that you must fight against them at open which cause you fail. For example:
- grenade can throw around 20m at same height, the distance between the closest cover and enemy is 21m.
- only gap to climb up the hill is covered by enemy MGs and there is no indirect weapon to kill him, no smoke, no sniper rifle. You can draw his attention by gunfire which will scarifie some unit, so he will look at other direction.
At some map, load game will change the behaviour of enemy. Change patrol route, go somewhere they won't go normally, see your unit at concealment.
You have to play/complete objective in the way they design, otherwise event trigger is broken, for example, reinforcement come at wrong time, no reinforcement, etc
and some minor bug.
So far, It's a very fun game, only some mission is broken but i have to choose NOT RECOMMENDED.
