Heroes & Generals is by far the closest game to battlefield 1942 and Battlefield 2 that is out there, way better then BF3, 4. Very enjoyable game, and now that it is finished I find navigating servers easy and the community is very populated, which makes this game very rare.

This game is anything but massive. When played there was about 6k. The visuals are boring as hell, grey on grey, crap animations, just bland. Gameplay is your average multiplayer lobby based shooter. You can find better anywhere else. General pay to win/get an edge market. It screams your ♥♥♥♥♥♥ f2p game.

Needs a lot of work, can be fun at times but it is very annoying most of the time. The concept is good but it is being ruined by unenjoyable game play.

This game used to be fun, it is now ruined. A lack of setting options means you have to play how they make you and the controls are so unresponsive it makes you feel like your character is covered in a really thick oil.

Pro Cycling Simulation 1942

No, seriously, riding a bike is FUN!

You start with a low level reifleman, play games, get EXP and credit to unlock attachment or better gun or even vehicles and aircraft.

There're four mode, from a small-scale encounter to a war mode with tanks and planes.

in-game purchase warning, but that's your choice.

Will participate in Tour de France 1942 as a German pro cyclist again.

i've recently been seeing all these paid youtube videos about how great this game is which in fact it's not. clunky movement, floaty jumps, insane nade spam problem in all game modes, if you want to get somewhere in a reasonable time you'll have to pay heaps of money, p2w p2w p2w...

sure you can play it completely free of charge but it will not be fun and i would never encourage anyone to spend a single dime on this game.

p2w up the assload. Dont bother. Theirs no fkin balance what so ever in this game. Let me just say this though, It says I have 34.7 hours from steam, before this game even came out in steam i have over a few hundred hours played, Yes I did spend some money in the game at the time I liked it, and was willing to shell out cash to help support the developers, but now lol...

Example : Heavy tanks for example, 3 shells armor pierce rounds pershing to kill ANY factions heavy tank. Period. While the other 2, only takes 2 frontal shots, yer dead. Balance much? lol

hope you got your credit card out, as you'll need it for the repairs, which are fkin horendous in this game, for every damn part on the gun needs to be repaired, and it costed a ♥♥♥♥ ton of money for LITTLE use.

Its buggy as hell, was buggy as hell in beta, still buggy as hell in launch. "how so?" Well get a sniper to head glitch in walls, terrain, rocks, good ♥♥♥♥ing luck killing them, cant even see the damn head. So how the hell do you expect to kill them?

Not optimized at all either, theirs very little optimization done to the game, or even in the options menu, so those with low end computers, good luck playing.

The grind is no joke, and if you stock up on weaponry as soon as you unlock it, and use it copiously. You're going to spend more credits on refilling your ammunition than you'll be making per match.

But it's a free game. What do you expect? Yeah you could drop a few bucks in game and keep everything unlocking as fast as you'd like. But it's not quite P2W because it would get expensive really quickly.

If you have no money, and enjoy a good grinding FPS, this will serve you nicely.

Great game, don't listen to kids saying it is pay2win you get some free premium currency every day and you can get everything with standard currency which you earn by playing. Just rebalance some matches where the spawn points can put you in disadvantages, a part from that great.

This is really the only WWII game worth playing these days. The new maps are amazing and will take many days to learn all the diffrent parts of. A vast selection of vehicles and weapons. The RTS side of the game as a general may take some time to get to but it is quite fun as well.
