What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“When we started developing Heroes & Generals it was with the intention of creating a game for the gamers as much as for ourselves. The games we have been creating in the past (back in the IO Interactive days) have all been shrouded in secrecy until they were released and therefore always carried a number of things that players did not like but we were unable to change. Because it is the players that in the end plays the game we think they should have greater influence on the development.

Since the very early days of the project in 2011 (pre-alpha stage), we invited players in to play the game and have involved our community in the making of Heroes & Generals and listened to the feedback from them. So it's a natural extension of the way we develop Heroes & Generals, to also include the Steam Community, by going Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're approaching the end of our Open Beta/Early Access phase, but it's still too soon for us to put a date on when we'll launch.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We're still tweaking, fixing bugs and adding new features to Heroes & Generals, and even though we feel that the game is now fun and quite stable, we still wish to get all things 'just right' before we call it 'launched'.

We do not plan to do a full server reset when the game launches.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We're in the end of our Open Beta phase, preparing for launch.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Heroes & Generals is Free2Play. We wish to create a healthy, solid and well-balanced game and community, where you can get a great experience playing the game, no matter how much money you spend! There is already an in-game economy in place, where you earn in-game credits and warfunds for being active in the game, by playing FPS-missions and/or handling Assault Teams.

You can also buy gold, which you can use to buy practically everything, usually it give you the option of buying stuff ‘early’, so you don’t need to grind that much. We also offer a Veteran Membership to accommodate wishes of having an all-inclusive package, where you earn xp, ribbon-xp, in-game credits and warfunds at an increased rate etc.

Prices are regularly being tweaked now in Open Beta/Early Access and we will most likely still tweak prices at and after launch.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We encourage the players to participate in discussions in our forum: http://forum.heroesandgenerals.com/

When you write feedback about the game, remember to try and explain your reasons. Constructive criticism will help us build a better game for you.”

Servers Down [2016.05.25]


A hotfix package has been prepared and is currently being loaded onto live. We hope to have the servers back online in 30 minutes.

Thank you for your patience.

The hype for the new build is so big that our servers are overwhelmed by it!

Despite our best efforts the servers will have to remain offline for tonight. We'll get the servers ready tomorrow to make sure we can continue the hype!

We'll update you right here when we have more information as to when the servers will be available again.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

About This Game

Heroes & Generals is a Free2Play Massively Online FPS with a Strategic Multiplayer Campaign, set in the midst of World War II Europe, where the United States, Germany and the Soviet Union all fight each other for control.

Players can choose to play as 'Heroes', fighting in the trenches, flying planes, commanding tanks and other vehicles on the battlefield, or take control of the war as 'Generals', determining the strategic direction and supporting fellow players by managing battlefield assets, army units and reinforcements.

The 'Generals' part of the game is also playable via the companion app 'Heroes & Generals: Mobile Command' which is available for iOS and Android.

As Infantry, Tank Gunner, Fighter Pilot, Recon, Paratrooper or General, your actions can turn the tide of a persistent online war, fought by players across the world!

First things first, Heros & Generals is from its core and the idea behind it a brilliant game! And best part its free!
I would pay up to 60$ for a pay to play game with same setting and idea.

Beeing in early access does help to still see some light at the end of the tunnel.
Lets now face that if you want to do anything then running arround with your basic gun, you will have to grind the ♥♥♥♥ out of the game. At least the grind can be fairly enjoyable if you dont terribly suck at FPS games and you dont get frustrated easy!

Killing tanks in close combat can be easy if you have stuck in 15+ to 30+ hrs of playing and your able to buy mines or sticky bomb. Other then that you can pick up a panzerfaust or your national equivalent, good tankers will not attack bases where they lay around so run arround the map with it good luck not getting killed by some guy that does nothing else then sitting in one bush or the bush beside that one or the one beside that one and kills dumpasses like you.

I dont know where Reto-Moto is going with this its for all i can say not a real pay to win, veteranship is nice but maybe not 100% necessary.

Making me pay 10 to 20€ for a pea dot cammo will make me spend not a single ♥♥♥♥ing cent.

Unfortunately good friends waste most of their time here so if I want to stick arround with them I will waste my time further.
Play it, but dont but ♥♥♥♥!

PS: Best part free 24h veteranship with 10hs serverproblems <3

It's really too bad that I waited until the Devyatayev update to write a review. Because now I have to rate it thumbs down because no good thing about this game can make up for this absolute garbage "Squad 2.0" they implemented.

Do the devs really think it was a good idea to FORCE players into a squad? Teamwork is one thing, "making friends" (as they put it) is another, but don't you think it would be a good idea to let players decide whether they want to or not? You think it was smart to FORCE players into it?

The guy before me pretty much said what needs to be said about Squad 2.0, and devs, if you read this, get ready for the flood of negative reviews because it's coming (not that you really seem to care)

Basically, before you play this game, google about this update and Squad 2.0 and see why people are mad about it and take that into consideration. The google results will be all the review you need about this game that just released the most garbage "feature" ever.

Wasted over 700 hours grinding 6 different soldiers. Why "wasted" you ask? Well. Squad 2.0.

What is Squad 2.0 you ask? Reto, being the geniuses that they are, though they WOULD bring players CLOSER and ENCOURAGE teamwork. The idea is fine but the way they executed it was ♥♥♥♥ING AWFUL!

You can either:

Get 2-6 friends of yours to play the game and play as a squad member with em (Using Skype/TeamSpeak is prefered).
(All gamers are ♥♥♥♥ing loners. No way I can get 2-6 friends of mine to play this now ♥♥♥♥.)



Except that they also made changing class/character in combat impossible; that's biggest reason I said "wasted" hours.

I just feel bad writting this negative review because the game USED TO BE ♥♥♥♥ing unique! It was the only WWII FPS game with progression. Now it's a pile of ♥♥♥♥.

Message to Devs:

There's a ♥♥♥♥ing reason no other gaming company implements such stuff; and that's ♥♥♥♥ing FUN, nobody gives a ♥♥♥♥ about getting closer to other players, we don't want to get to know each other; THIS AIN'T ♥♥♥♥ING ONLINE DATING ♥♥♥♥! Games for me, and I think for all of us, are a way of getting away from the real life problems.... and have fun.....

+PLUS+ You just flipped off all the vets by making that ♥♥♥♥♥♥ no-change system...

As I said, I feel bad for writting this negative review. If this Squad 2.0 ♥♥♥♥ gets fixed I 'll delete the review and start playing again.

I'd like to take the time to say. This game has a learning curve, like most online games it can be hard to get into for some new people. It doesn't hold your hand and baby you as you try to play. It's a rough and ready game there in development ready to play.

Weapons are customizable with different skins to make them look different from others. It now all costs ingame money which is earnable now that the income is fairly balanced. Weapon modifications come at a price of increased cost to restock ammunition and fix parts that you modify decreasing the amount you earn per battle to balance out the fact that your gun is stronger.

In a sense the game is a "Grind" in which it can take some time to unlock later on vehicles and weapons though if you're specifically playing just to grind and not to have fun you've already forgotten what fun is!

You can ride a push bike into battle. Need I say more.

All in all. If you're looking for a semi realistic WWII shooter with a degree of customisation. But a challenging learning curve and unlockable weapons, vehicles and different branches to specialize in: Tanker, Pilot, Paratrooper, Sniper and of course General. This is the game for you. Ignore the naysayers and try the game for yourself! After all everyones opinion on fun is different and just because some people don't like having to learn how to play a game doesn't mean other people don't! :p

Players earn experiance points and currency for participating in combat, which can be used to upgrade and customize their loadouts with weaponry and equipment. Eventually, players will be able to drive tanks or fly planes which adds an interesting strategic dimension to the FPS experiance.

The equipment, while historically accurate, seems to be balanced in favor of competitive (team based) gameplay. An example is the bullet trajectory mechanics, which are easy enough for newcomers to get familiar with while not being quite realistic.

While it features a cash shop (everybody loves cash shops, right? Right?), all players are able to obtain every weapon and every vehicle freely. But the issue of just *how* much time it takes to break in a new account is what will make or break it for a newcomer with no budget.

Regardless of that, Heroes & Generals might be the most fun you won't spend your money on.

I loved this game, played it for a few years, invested a lot of time and even some money in it. But update after update the devs destroyed what made it great (like the freedom to change roles during a battle). Now with the new "Devyatayev" Update they turned it into a complete piece of c***. I sincerely hope they will learn to listen to the players (but censorship seems to be the way they walk). If not they'll make me regret that i ever invested anything into their game. Peace to all the great players i've played with during those golden years. RIP HNG.

It's hard to describe the downhill spiral this game is in so I thought I would do it by all the different rolls you can play.


You drive your tank a man on a bike zooms towards you, you fire your HE he carries on you switch MG hit a few times he keeps coming, if you are moving you head towards some other players hopping they will get him, if you are stopped you are dead. Even if he doesn't have insta death grenades his mate can kill you with rockets.
If you play for the soviets you can't even use your MG or your main gun as the gun does not depress enough to hit anything, I think the soviet faction is just designed for target practice for both US and German tanks.
I almost forgot, the opposition can also position their tanks where you spawn and kill you before you can react, Oh and my personal favourite, put mines where you spawn so you die instantly.


Now this can be fun because all the planes have plus's and minus that make them fun to play. the down side is there is a broken mechanic that allows more senior players to load HE into their planes that will instantly kill any pilot. The controls are funky but this aids to the game play as it kind of restricts what you can do.
Lots of players like to camp spawns as well, as you can fly behind the preset spawn points for planes. Don't forget you can play like an ace and knock down loads of planes but it only takes 1 spam shot from the other side of the map to end your fun.


You spawn in a plane which 9 times out of 10 is either being shot down or about to be shot down. You jump out and unless you use the free fall badge, which allows you to open your shoot 2 foot above the ground you are just target practice. You can load up with anti tank stuff and blow up tanks with ought ever being seen as well.


This class has some fun toys as in armoured cars and you also get an 8 times scope. You also get a good dose of Parkinson's disease now as your scope never stays still.
You can have every type of gun or hand grenade or rocket and none of it matters unless you have heavy set gold which is the only way you will not die after the first bullet is fired. It also has the most random cone fire system ever developed.

The player Base.

Same as any other game you have some good some bad but as time goes by you realise there are 3 distinct types of player.

The Soviets; bar room fighters
The US; have the best weapons
The Germans; actually have all the best weapons but swear blind the US does

The game.

Used to be visually pleasing now is like 50 shades of grey with a "unhappy Ending" in every dark area. If you like camping it's the game for you. If you like unfair fights it's the game for you, if you like to pay for the good stuff, it's the game for you.
I still come back to the game but I have a couple of thousand hours in it, everyone of my friends has stopped playing it a long time ago. But to be true there comes to point when you have all of the players and all of the toys you are only really staying to support a faction but even then whats the point?

History and My Thoughts

The game was amazing fun maps with mountains, cover where you needed it but not too much, guns that mad sense in the way they fired and the type they were. Realistic grinds for new stuff, now it's just a grind fest.
They say we are a "Toxic Community" on the forums but in reality we are just so ignored by the developers its untrue the game by design is brilliant. inspired, fun but Reto over the last 2 years have systematically money grabbed and turned to the dark side.

Now for me it's not immersing myself in a great WWII game it's like looking into a bucket of ♥♥♥♥ on my desk.

But I still play it go figure????

I did love this game and I have atleast 100 hours on the browser game alone (Not counting on my Steam) But I logged in one day to find out I was banned for "hacking/cheating" I of course was very distraught and I wanted to ask them about it. I sent in a ticket asking if there was a way I could combat the perma ban and this was my response three days later.

I would firstly like to thank you for taking time to read my ticket. I would also like to say I do enjoy your game, it is very fun to play.
Today I went to log into the game and the screen says I have been perma banned for hacking, and I was wondering at what point did I hack the game? I have been playing to the best of my abilities and as far as I can tell, I have not used a hack in game to increase my abilities. Is there a way to combat this hacking charge or am I sh*t out of luck?

Hello Torean,

Your Heroes & Generals account has been permanently banned for using cheats/hacks.
We are not obligated to provide you with any information as to how you were caught.

This is strictly prohibited as stated in our Terms and Conditions, found here: https://account.heroesandgenerals.com/termsandconditions.aspx

Your account will therefore remain banned and you will not be entitled to any refund whatsoever.

We will not be discussing the matter with you any further.


Best regards,
Heroes & Generals Support Center

The only reason I am downvoting is because of their ♥♥♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ support team that just cuts off when I have been loyal and they won't even try to give me any help whatsoever.

- Massive grind
- Not having some badges and veteran memebership makes the game unplayable vs vets
- Unbalanced factions
- Terrible graphics where even during the day nothing can be seen in shadows
- Massive amount of fog all the time
- Pathetic game mechanics
- No skill game, pick the developer's favorite faction and you will do 2 times better due to unbalanced equipment and war map
- Enormous amount of bugs that don't get fixed for years, I'm not kidding, years, prone position has about 3 bugs for as long as I remember, never fixed, playing the game means you will discover about 1 new bug a day especially when they release new hotfix or update *cough* I mean new bugs coz that's what it mostly is
- Unrealistic physics and weapon behavior, unrealistic weapons
- Laggy, buggy servers
- Laggy FPS game due to bad lag compensation, never shoots where you aim, certainly not for competitive play and precise aim, it's awful in fast intense fights
- Forum community and bug hunter community is controlled by arogant veterans from the first 2 factions in the game, good luck if you play the 3rd one coz you will need it all the time everywhere
- Incompetent developers that only increase griding, do not fix balancing nor bugs, add new things to first 2 factions that have plenty and ignore the newest 3rd one for as long as it is in the game
- Developers do not listen to the community even though they send once in a long while a PR person to clan TSs, it's just a load of BS and nothing gets fixed or changed anyway, the only thing they listen to are cry babies of the first 2 factions that have become free workforce or paid testers

+ it's free to play
-but you need to grind and grind forever and buy veteran with credits if you don't play enough you gotta buy ingame gold and buy veteran with that

Not recommended, there are far better games than this, while the idea is OK the execution of it by RETO MOTO is pathetic and shouldn't be on Steam at all. There were months when their servers would not even handle the few players this game has.

- Right now the game balance is completely messed up and makes the game not fun and unplayable for the 3rd new faction which has been in the game for a year or more already
- Do not even bother with the forum, it's full of trolls, if you want at least some decent people to talk and play with you have to find a clan and join a TS, unfortunately developers are killing clan play as well with new updates

My recommendation is to remove it from Steam early access, terminate it's beta status and remove it from Steam so that the developers finally fix their crap.

This game had a lot of promise a year or two ago, but it's been in a death spiral since then.

The big red flags are permanent "Early Access" and "Beta" status, after years of the devs taking money for the game. The lack of development progress reeks of lack of leadership or a non-existent game design doc, with no clear path on where to go.

Communication with the game community from the developers has gone from poor to abyssmal, with continued promises to work on improving it. The player community has grown increasingly toxic as many of the older "vets" have left the game and those left fanatically defend the dev team and the game, while being blind to the serious problems that have persisted for years now.

The persistent problems include a terrible matchmaking system, that makes squad play a struggle at best and a nightmare at times, especially if attempting to squad play in "war" battles. Other long term problems include the strategy part of the game, with the deployment queues for Assault Teams (units) often lasting longer than the wars themselves, resulting in player never getting to take part in each war before it is over.

Graphics in the game have actually worsened in the last year, as the devs have "balanced" giving every infantryman access to "scopes" by adding extra fog and extreme shadows, making it impossible to see things at range or often up close.

Sound effects in game are said to "being worked on", but positional audio has been broken for a long time, making it impossible at times to distinguish if a person next to you shooting is right or left, front or behind. Other sounds never actually work, so that tank drivers do not hear incoming attacks and/or damage, until they explode, infantry don't hear gunshots that end up killing them, etc.

The biggest downwards movement in the game has been the upping of the "Grind". Making progress leveling up, earning credits is now glacially slow, to the point you have to be a masochist to endure it. A year or two ago the devs encouraged players to have numerous characters, envisioned them like a "deck of Pokeman cards" (quote from Red B.) that the players could switch between as needed. Now, with the immense grind, leveling multiple characters is a nightmarish chore.

The focus of the game now seems on harpooning "whales", who are willing to spend hundreds of dollars to speed their progress in the game, while "casual" players are left to run into the grind wall and bounce off, to land in other games. If you look at the Steam statistics, the playerbase is dwindling, which is quite evident in game with the difficulty finding battles during many parts of the day outside of European prime time.

There is always a chance things could turn around, but outside of a serious change in development team, it's unlikely.

Reto is trying its' hardest to destroy this game. Terrible choice after terrible choice. Rommel/Walker/Adams--Airfire. All made the game progressively worse. Confire has so far been my absolute most hated *feature* added to the game yet. The amount of random 1-shot headshots that I get after Adams is crazy. Guns never perform the same each time. You can aim straight at someone and have it completely miss both ways around them like they are Jesus or some ♥♥♥♥. It's so ♥♥♥♥ing ridiculous.

There are many negative reviews for this game already, so i will go a bit personal, leaving the facts to other people.

I played this game, longer than the steam time here. I started playing this game, when you had just US vs. Germany. And when tanks had just 4 categories, no tiers in each category. When both faction had different starting weapons and faction bound AT weapons. Ah yes, the unfair battles between the US and Germany. Sadly, US still have too much good stuff while Germany got too much nerfed, i mean, the US gets a third LMG while the Germans get a...third pistol. No joke. And the Soviets are lacking in many areas, tanks are few and not great, their weapons needs love and overall shortage of stuff. And the game have still only one plane for the pilots of each faction, imbalancing it more as each faction plane have different problems while the soviet plane Yak-9 is just too good, even more when you consider, that all planes have the same damn engine.

The handling of game mechanics is a joke with the Dev Team, they don't listen to the community and are not giving answers in their own forum. They managed much, but the problem is, that are too many designers in the team, not programmers. Which explains some weird hitboxes on some tanks and the sideskirts of the Pz4 are bugged, causing self destruction by obstacles, look it up on Youtube if you don't believe me. Spawning is another problem like the team balancing, just cruel almost.

The devs are changing gold/credit prices after their own tastes, without notes in their patches! Don't invest money in it, the devs must start working for it, if they want it. I don't recommend this from my heart. I loved this game once, but this love is long gone, since the broken promises of Squad 2.0 and Armor 2.0 will never come.

The little Dev team that couldn't. The biggest problem with this game is the Dev team. They just don't understand what they want this game to be, or the basics of how to make a good game period. Even though I usually get paid to consult I will give this Dev team a free hint. GAME FLOW!!
I love WWII FPS games and the potential here is huge. The artwork is so so but passable. The map creation is lacking. The lighting is horrible. The devs need to remember that a person may play for hours so quit trying to ruin their eye sight with horrible lighting and intense fog. It's not cool looking, it's head ache material and a trip to the eye doctor.
The UI is terrible with all kinds of images getting in the way of seeing what you are trying to do which is playing the game. Huge cap point icons in the way of seeing another player. There is a map yanno?
Notice banners pop up in the middle of the screen blocking what you are currently engaged in. To say that's annoying is being polite. And then there is the Deploy Que. Die in the heat of a great battle and then...wait..wait...and wait...in the deploy que. Rule 101 to a good game...NEVER destroy game flow!! There is never a good reason to destroy game flow.
The Grind and pricing. Oh my, where to start. Yes, you want to cause folks to earn that new weapon but making that grind turn into a career is just wrong. Pricing a pistol to cost as much as a tank is beyond belief. Charging folks to pay for weapon repair after every match is just.... well, dumb. As for the weapons themselves well that's easy...look up the stats of each weapon and set them accordingly. Somehow that thought is lost with this dev team. Vehicles made from cardboard that were designed for rough terrain but the slightest bunp in the road sends you spinning out of control. The things that make you go Hmmmm.
The new trendy excuse.."This game is in BETA" is wearing thin and the gamers need to stop supporting this nonsense. Oh, you want to try our new sandwich? That will be $4.50 and here's your two pieces of bun. The sandwich is still in BETA so maybe next month we'll put a slice of cheese between those pieces of bun and then maybe month after that we'll add some mustard to the...you get the idea. You wouldn't tolerate that for one moment so why are you gamers putting up with it in gameing?
I only consider reviewing a game after many hours to make sure I have given a fair shake to the devs. Sadly, this game is something that could be very enjoyable if it were handed over to other devs that know how a game is supposed to work. Save your time, even though it's free, and go play something made by folks with some understanding of what gaming is all about.

Congratulations, developers. You just shot your own game in the foot and alienated your loyal playerbase all in one swoop. So much for 'help us make the game you want to play.'

I have played more than one thousand hours on this game between the Patton Build and the Churchill build, and loved it.

I have played TWO games post - Devyatayev update and now hate it.

Before the update you were free to switch between any class you owned on the battlefield provided the resource is available.

Enemy paratrooper planes spotted? No problem, switch to a Fighter Pilot and take them down.

Enemies are swarming the last objective? No worries, I have another Infantryman with an SMG.

Running out of Infantry? No issue, we have paratroopers.

Now, what can we do with the game next? Oh yeah, almost completely disable that feature. Now, if you join a battle alone you are stuck with playing that class for the entirety of that game, and even if you join with your own squad you are severely restricted on doing this.

In other words, you can't join as any soldier other than an infantryman for fear that your team may need an Infantryman, who are, after all, the players that do the majority of capturing and defending. Our team is losing our final objective? I wonder why, oh yeah, everyone is either a pilot or tank commander and cannot switch to their own infantrymen because of this update.

To add insult to injury, players that join a match without a squad are now forced into one – one person of which is made the squad leader. Which probably means you'll have some low-rank soldier who doesn't really have the knowledge or expertise as of yet to command directing you for at least one-quarter of your games. Not saying this is necessarily bad, but having a Pilot ordering me to get out of my plane and capture an objective is not on. And then he kicked me from his squad – something he has the power to do - meaning I don't share in any of the bonuses for following 'orders' etc. Great way of making players feel even more alone on the battlefield, rather than making them feel less alone.

Another instance of the following orders stupidity is if I am playing as my anti-tank Infantryman, which if I continued playing this game I would probably do since I cannot switch to my Tanker mid-game, so I would have to deal with tanks that way. But I cannot capture an objective using mines and a bazooka, which I will inevitably get ordered to do since the new squad leader system rewards players who spam commands. In the eyes of an observer, I will probably look like a selfish pig who doesn't want to assist my team, when it is completely the opposite.

You can avoid this system partially by forming your own squad pre-match with friends, provided any of them still play after this update. Doing so gives you the bonus of knowing you won't end up under the command of some new player who really should be following rather than leading due to inexperience.

The squad system used to be that you could recruit up to 5 of your friends to play as a squad, provided they all have a character of that class, e.g. German Pilot. You would be then free to switch between characters mid-battle, so if there were no enemy fighters you were a bit useless and likely to switch to Infantry to assist your team better.

Now, we have the 'new and improved' Squad 2.0. It means that the number of people you can have in a squad is cut in half to 3 for infantry, the largest squad. But you can pay/grind even more (the grind was bad enough beforehand) to unlock more squad points to pay for a bigger squad, again up to 6 by using up to 10 of your 12 points to add more members to your squad, leaving none left to customise it any other way.

However, you can now add 'auxiliary seats' to your squad, meaning that one person at once can change to the class of that seat, adding up to 3 of these seats. This means that the team will probably spend more time arguing about who gets to use the auxiliary seat than playing the game, something I have already seen happening on the first day after the update. It also means whichever player changes to that class will be under constant pressure from his own team to do well at that class, as they cannot change to it themselves.

It's such a shame to see such a good thing get killed off instantly by one update. And I haven't even talked about all the other bad things in the D build – the new Squad system alone is enough to make my blood boil. In its current state, the game is a waste of storage space, which is why I've uninstalled it.

RIP Heroes and Generals, 11th July 2014 - 25th May 2016

I started playing this game as soon as I got my gaming pc about 2 years ago, back then the graphics were actually lovely, now therte are TOO MANY, you literally cant see what your shooting at from if you're In or near a bush to your gun has a firerate of 400+/min. I LOVED the graphics and silly physics of when it first came out, I mean the silly physics were the main reason I played this game. They say they are going for realism and shiz but the game as it stands is not realisting, it was MORE realistic back when Landmines launched you into the sky and your body spazzed out all over the map. Now the game has things that weren't even used till the end of WWII. I love the variety of the weapons now but they are all nerfed and changed so they all have the same crappy stats basically but yet somehow everybody is overpowered. I try to level up new characters but every match I'm in everybody on the enemy team has the best gear, matchmaking in this game sucks, there should be a character level/equip. limiter for matches so you cant join a match with noobs using a new character and instantly switch out to your HeaySet 1man army.

I'm sorry, this game was great when it came out but the devs are ruining it, I DONT WANT YOUR HD PARTICLE EFFECTS AND SHADOWS, I want my sunny peaceful day of war and my landmine corpse launches back, gameplay back then was at least enjoyable. I'm sorry, I would recommend this but it is ruined, it is still a good game, but it is going downhill

I am currently not recomending this game. Its gotten to the point that 8/10 times I try to play I end up getting extremely frustrated. There are a few rare games that get really heated up and fun to play that last over 30 minutes to an hour long. Faction weapons feel horribly unbalanced. I recently became a tanker with a German and found out that the default tank is SUPER UNBALANCED compared to the American light tanks. You fire infantry-grade machine guns at enemy Chaffees that two shot you. You'd have to play with another guy if you ever want to upgrade your tank (so that you can earn credits to buy a medium tank). This is just one of the many painstaking grinds that this game has to offer. I won't even begin with my struggle to become Recon... The only reason I have 152 hours right now is that my friend and I have a fun time playing it together.

Playing this game with a friend will make it fun and toleratable. For example: He has a heavy tank and I use my recon class to go spot enemy vehicles for him as I implement Viet Cong Tactics to keep enemy units from reaching our cap point. We also have fun riding around in the Recon's Anti-Personal Vehicle (which I still don't understand why THE RECON CLASS IS ALLOWED TO HAVE). We play it every now and then for ***** and giggles until one of us finally gets tired of being ♥♥♥♥♥ by all the automatic weapons that the other two factions get.

There are three factions: Germany, Soviets, and the Americans. Germany I feel has horribly under powered weapons *cough* machinepistol 34 *cough* (does less damage than my c36 pistol :/ ) and I find myself having to pick up enemy weapons such as the AUTOMATIC CARBINES THAT AMERICA AND SOVIET RUSSIA DID NOT HAVE. The PTRD for the Soviets has got to be the icing on the cake because it can two shot my Anti-Personel Vehicle (skdftzz 222) which really doesn't seem right. The Russian APV is armored to the teeth but only has machine guns on it (which I believe is a good balance decision on Reto's part and I wish that they could implement that kind of balancing alot more often). All of these vehicles, weapons, attachments, ammunition all cost ingame credits (or a little-bit of micro-transaction) to purchase and maintain.

The final part of this game that both breaks it and makes it are the devs themselves. Reto-Moto is a development company that I believe is worse than EA. That has to atleast say something coming from a player who has witnessed this game since 2015 when I watched Frankie play it. Those were the days that they had actually envisioned great ideas and a train of development for that game that has such beautiful potential that is currently being hacked and slashed by a development team that censors more criticism than Nazi Germany in 1942. They repeatedly censor contrusctive feedback from the community, update the game with now useless updates (from the trailer which, of this review, features a new MG for the Americans and a nice nifty pistol for the German infantry to kill themselves with. I honestly have not had enough of that Johnson machine gun. That is a whole different topic that the community would give entire MLA formatted essays about just like the previously mentioned PTRD, auto-carbines, drunk sway motion held iron sights, spawn farming, etc. This game has multiple flaws that Reto-Moto has refused to listen about or fix and the majority of their community is outraged by the fact that the development of this game is coming to lazy standstill with hold off's like a new gun here and there or new camo or maybe a vehicle or two... It's sad to see a great game like this wasted by developers who show us that they're giving up on their game and milking it for whatever pennies it's worth. Don't let Reto-Moto set an example for Indie Devs. Don't waste money on Reto-Moto. Let Reto-Moto die.

For sources about my "claims" above with unbalanced weapons/vehicles, spawn camping, community outrage/censorship and anything else can easily be looked up with simple google searches as other players have multiple videos, screenshots, and treads on Reddit that describe each topic with greater detail because these are just my personal experiances with the game. The game is fun with friends but, I highly recommend that you do not financially support this game in any way and just play it for fun with your friends as it was meant to be.

Oh boy where do i begin.

I have the feeling as a long time player that the game gets worse with every Update. Reto-Moto don't really listen to the Community.
Community is very toxic time to time.

Here are the "bad" things.

-This game is not new player friendly.
-There is so many bugs which have been in the game now 1,5 years.
-Only 3 new maps in 3 year. I´m sick of playing the same old boring maps. (5 large maps,1 small encouter map and 3 small skirmish map.)
-No prober spawn protection. (Yes i know you get the 5 second protection only with infantry spawns, not when you are spawning with vehicles.) Spawn camping is common,for example,spawn camping tanks, snipers and enemy put anti-tank mines on you spawn area and you blow instantly, sounds fair right...
-The grind is so horrible the get new equipment, 10-40 hours grinding (without the premium.) to unlock it. And the money as well you have to grind to get it another 10-30 hours. Oh did i mentioned that you have to hit tier 2 to get in the big maps. You have to play those small maps over and over again to get tier 2 one of your soldiers, it takes 15-40 hours (without premium.) And when you hit the tier 2 one of you soldiers get ready for veterans players who have unlocked everything. Yuo have your first gun semi-auto(garand,g43 or svt-40) or perhaps the first sub machinegun. Sounds fair and fun...
-Repair cost is also high, especially for new players.
-No proper anti-cheat protection, you will encouter cheaters/hackers.
-The game has been Beta for allmost 3 years. I know it´s free to play and progress is slow and Reto is small company.
-It´s pay to win game. You can reach and unlock everything with real money if you wish.

Now for the "good" things

-It´s free
-Different roles you can play. (Paratrooper,Infantry,Recon,Tanker and Fighter pilot)

I will change my review if the game goes better after incoming updates, but we will see about that.

So here i am writing a review....

Well if you dont want to read this entire view than here is the short anwser, this game is ♥♥♥♥ in its current state.

I really liked the idea of a WWII shooter with an RTS element and at first I enjoyed it. When I first joined I thought the game was really fun and intresting so I kept playing (I have played for about 500 hours on another account) untill I realised how much of a grind it really is. Badges (The progress system) take forever to unlock so getting new and most importantly good weapons take ages, unless you buy gold like I did. Not only does it take long time to unlock the equipment, getting the money for them requires the same level of grinding.

Next up is balance and this is a big one. The devs suck at balancing their game. They have more intrest in making good/OP weapons super hard to get for free players but if you pay a huge amount of money you can unlock the badges for that weapon, however than you have to spend more money to buy the bloody gun itself. Anyway back to balance, there is very little. There are two game types, war and staged battles. War battles are controlled by what is going on in the RTS side of the game which sounds cool, but they are extremely unbalanced due to most battles having over welling odds stacked against you like tanks however I can forgive this due to the game trying to make a realistic war setting. Staged battles are the "balanced" side of the game with the amount of tanks, soldiers and planes being the same. However this mod is affected by the unbalanced weapons and tanks in the game, for example a American Hellcat is a tank hunter (That is its tank class) and it is far more deadly than a German Hetzer which is also a tank hunter.

Lastly is the maps themselves which are very boring and sometimes pretty unbalanced. As well as this most of the game is just broken. For example the prone mechanics dont work, scoping in when prone often results in the scope spassing which causes you to get killed in most situations.

The only positives from this game is the concept really.... so sad that devs have become this greedy and lazy.

I was going to right a serious review for this game, But it doesn't deserve my time.
Will i keep playing this game? Yes. I will.
But what needs to be said is how much of a god damn pisstake this game can be sometimes.
Microtransactions left and right and unbalanced as hell weapons.

There is a huge bias in this game towards factions under the false name of "Historical accuracy" Which is absolute ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t. The soviets have so much god damn bias it's not even funny. They cry when the pps gets nerfed whilst having 2 smg's with 71 shots each, compared to the american 30-30 and the german 20-32. People argue "but the guns are balanced with sway and recoil". There has not been one soviet gun i have shot which has had terrible recoil. All of it is managable and a complete joke. I can't take it seriously anymore. For any new players. That's 71 shots in an SMG compared to 50 shots in an LMG.

Also worth mentioning, The soviet SMG'S are the kings of hipfire, rendering recoil basically useless, with mods being added to allow better accuracy.

This game will seriously test your patience compared to other shooters, And as anybody in most teamspeaks will say they have raged more than once playing h&g.

In terms of atmosphere and graphics, the game is poorly optimised and the only way to set it to minimal quality is to go into game files, which is very risky. The general appearance of the game is very grayscale and dark. making it very easy to hide in stupid spots and remain in the complete dark.

It is worth mentioning the good things of the game however:

There is a very active playerbase, with wars being hosted every 15-ish days and lots of people to meet and talk to.

This game does have some very badass moments, whether it be in a tank, plane or on the ground, This game can make you feel like an FPS god.

The RTS part of the game is also very fun, while being able to coordinate in a teamspeak or in the faction chat to where you will move your units.

Overall, There's alot to say about this game, which can't be covered in the same paragraph, I understand people will disagree with this but this is just my opinion, so take it with a grain of salt. I've not covered nearly enough as i could have but this is all i can really be bothered to do, Peace.

-Grinding. Everything is grinding from unlocking, buying, upgrading and maintaining weapons/vehicles/badges/classes.
-They made griding credits a bit easy if you sink 50 - 100 hrs IN MATCHES (thats right not including those match making time) but they really made grinding ribbons hard now but don't worry you can now use credits or gold which you could buy using real money to immediately get upgrades or ribbons you want with prices that is more expensive than the most expensive guns in the game.
-I will defend the game is not P2W but paying will give you a little edge on someone who is not paying.
-It is common to encounter a frustrating match (tanks blowing you up 5 secs after you spawn, no one is doing objective, deploy queue because all your teamates are camping because they dont want to be in the deploy queue, getting in a match that is so hopeless you will wonder why did you wait 5 mins so that the game would put you into that match, your class that are using to grind its weapons is not available in the match or run out of spawn, you have 5 dumb pilots and 5 dumb tankers which are basically dead weight)
-Did you love the trailers of this game like the soviet one? too bad you still need to wait 20 years for that.
-Not battlefield kind of gameplay. Which means more realistic spawn location and spawn time. Battles in open areas are skirmishes with few assault until attacker gets tired and just camp in their point.
-Finally if you are not dedicated enough this game is not for you, without paying anything 10 - 50 hr at least would be required for you to get the play of this game and be familiar to all the maps.
-If you still reading this and interested in the game PRO TIP DO NOT PLAY ON AIRFIELD AS INFANTRY or you might loose interest of this game immediately that map is for tanks and snipers just practice on skirmishes maps for a few hours.

(please add me +200 hours from the non-steam release)

TL;DR Wasted potential. Dead development.

Heroes&Generals despite being a good alternative to Battlefield series with a great not too fast/slow pacing (that I enjoy way more than annoying BF chaos) is a giant waste of potential, all thanks to it's devs. The development is dead as clearly unfinished mechanics (very shallow tank/air combat and RTS gamemode) haven't been significantly updated since I started playing (addition of soviet faction in febuary 2015). Reto-Moto is currently milking players by adding more and more camos/skins and overpowerd weapons/vehicles (that in 90% nobody ever really wanted) to buy (price too high for grinding these).

The player-developer communication does. not. exist. The development feedback section on forum is filled with detailed suggestions and constructive criticism. All of this is getting ignored by devs. There are almost no developer responses to these posts. Also devstreams are disappointing and the part dedicated to answering players questions is based on drawing a random question from twitch comment section.

I really want this game to succeed but seeing the current situation I cannot recommend this game for today.

Yes the game is free, and the videos they have on its steam page make it look great but take a few things into account before you buy it.

First off, this game looks nothing like it does in the videos you most likely just saw. Those videos are made to look way way better than what you actually get when you play the game. The graphics in the game are decent, but they could be better. The tanks, cars, and guns are done pretty well as they show a good and accurate amount of detail to what they really were in WW2. The soliders and maps are where things start to decline. The maps in this game all have the same sort of greyish - brown texture. The trees could have been done much better, as they look like 2x4s painted grey and the bushes look like poor cutouts of a pre-schooler. The soilders aren't the best either. The character model is the same for everyone across all three of the factions. All of the models have the same creepy, face that stares at you and that doesn't change even after being shot in the back of the head. But, to help their poor character models, they added different types of camos in the game so you can stand out yet blend into the map as you go into battle. The only problem is, that the camos are $$$, which leads me into my next point.

This game is free to play, which usually translates into pay to win. Not always, but usually. Unfortuantly, this game is 100% pay to win. Unless you have FPS experience in the past, you will have a very hard time starting off with the first guns they give you. Even after you have been playing the game for awhile or are used to playing FPS games, they are rather hard aim with. Each of the starter rifles for the 3 factions are the same in many ways, Each hold limited about of ammo, each have slow rate of fire, and each have poor iron sights. This will make it very hard for players to be able to enjoy the game at first, and get credits ( ingame currency ) to get better weapons. But, after 1-2 days on the game, you get enough credits and buy a new weapon and you go try it out ingame. When you finish, you come back to being in DEBT becaus your weapon needs repairs. Repairs in this game are COMPLETLY unnecessary and a way for the game to suck away your money. The idea is that you need to repair your weapon after battle, but that idea sucks money away from you very quickly. But, you still like this game, so you get past it and keep playing the game. You spend some time on the game and find yourself with a new weapon, and at the same time find yourself not being able to make credits. This is where the veteran membership comes in. The veteran membership is a small buff that makes you level things up quicker, rank up faster and gain more credits. If you want to make a very good amout of credits in a day, you will need to have your accout a veteran member. All the rest you will figure out very fast. The badges, weapons, cars, and tanks in the game take a very large about of playtime to unlock, ( unless you buy gold ). So... the game is a grind, it doesn't look the best, and is pay to win, but its fun right?

The gameplay of the game is one of the few things that is good about it. I have had a very good time playing this game, but there are still things that need to be fixed. First, the movment. For a long time, moving in this game has felt very floaty. There was a recent patch to fix this, but there are still times where it feels you are on iceskates trying to turn a corner before you get killed. The shooting in the game is good. Its a classic aim down the sights and shoot game,, but you will need to do one thing, which is get a basic understanding of the maps. As said very breifly before in this review, these maps are WAY to big. Its not quite at the point to where its an open world game, but its like CODs NukeTown times 100.

There are still many things that need to be inproved about this game. In the end it depends on who you are. If you know the basic FPS lingo, give the game a shot. If you are new to FPS on PC, you might want to try a another game
