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.”

Early Access Review
1. I hate that each update dumbs the game down to nothing more than a 'Red Vs. Blue' shoot 'em up that even the most mindless of FPS player would find too simple.

2. I hate that the devs cater to people who complain en mass over something they don't like (getting sniped) and implement something totally stupid to counter it (tracer rounds that can be seen clearly even in the day time)

3. I hate that good suggestions (medics, better flight models, proper tank physics, realistic damage to tank tracks, plane cockpit view, different uniforms as you go up in rank, deployable bipods, tank cupola view and so on) have been seemingly neglected.

4. I hate that rather than fix something or make it the best they can (e.g. Tanks) the devs just introduce more of said broken item.

5. I hate that after 3 years+ of development we still have one campaign, guns sound like they are firing paintballs, tanks flip when running into bicycles and come to a complete stop when hitting a simple wooden fence and much more.

6. I hate that maps are so big and empty with no ambiance, no destruction and nothing that makes me remotely think I'm in a war.

7. I hate the new weight system and how totally absurd it is (a grease gun weighing as much as a Thompson, a scoped Kar 98 weighing less than a regular Kar 98)

8. I hate that it took them so long to bring back paratroopers, and have essentially made them useless by giving them only 6 equipment slots, barely enough to equip anything. Even though paratroopers in WW2 were fitter and carried almost triple the equipment of a regular soldier.

9. I hate that the FG42 is listed as an LMG and has the same weight as an MG42 when it is comparable in size and weight to a modern assault rifle.

10. I hate that veteran has been essentially shoved down our throats by removing a weapon and badge slot, even though they have other ways of gaining income (especially a $99 pack on steam unlocking everything).

11. I hate that the devs seem to have no clear direction and won't admit it, even though we can all see it.

12. I hate that Team killers and griefers are not getting banned. People are getting random banned.
http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197960868745/recommended/227940/

13. I hate that when I fielded my assault team and they got routed, I got database connection error.
Basically I have to stay away from the general tab to play the fps game. What a joke.

14. Most of all, I hate that the devs don't see that they are essentially running their own game into the ground by not respecting the community, or heeding their feedback. Long time players are leaving in droves because of it and how each update brings the game further away from what they hoped it would be. Short time players (who they are now catering too) will eventually leave after they've wallet warriored their way to boredom and see that the game is essentially in a stalemate.

日本語と英語の二ヶ国語でのレビューに挑戦してみたいと思います。
This Review is written in Japanese and English. Sorry about my poor English.

まず何より先に言っておきたいのですが、このゲームはアメリカ軍がドイツ軍より有利な条件になっています。

All what I'd like to say is " US weapons is stronger than German ones in this game."

第一に、歩兵装備の優位性です。ドイツ軍のG43ライフルは威力や反動の面でアメリカ軍のM1ガーランドに劣っています。武器MODを装着すれば、中~近距離でなら胴体2発で敵を殺せるようになるので、長く使い続けるつもりならそうするのがオススメです。また、ドイツ兵が最初に購入できるようになるMP34サブマシンガンは装弾数が20発しかないため、アメリカ兵のM3グリースガンやM1トンプソンと撃ち合う際に苦しい思いをすること請け合いです。サブマシンガンで戦果を挙げてリボンをLv UPさせればMP40を購入できるようになりますが、かなり高価(MG34や38t戦車よりも値段が高い)ですし、M1トンプソンの火力や連射性能にはどうしても負けてしまいます。

First, US infantry equipments are superior than German's ones. The damage and recoil of G43 rifle(German), fresh recruit's weapon is inferior than M1 Garand(American). If you want to keep using this rifle for long time, you should improve these status by installing weapon mods. After that, this rifle will be able to defeat Uncle Sam with only twice body-hits in close to middle range. MP34 Submachine gun has only 20 rounds while M3 Greese gun has 30 rounds. This gap suffer German players. Of course, you can purchase MP40 Submachine gun when you earn enough EXPs of SMG ribbon.However, its Fire Power and Rate of Fire is still worse than M1 Thompson. In addition, the biggest problem is ...... MP40 is so expensive. Its price is higher than MG34 and even light tanks !!

第二に、戦車の性能の差です。「ドイツ戦車といえばWW2最強だろ!」と考える人は少なくないと思われますが、少なくともこのゲームではドイツ戦車乗りは茨の道を歩かされることは間違いないと言えるでしょう。というのもこのゲーム、ドイツ戦車兵はまず1号戦車からスタートするのですが、敵として遭遇(マッチング)する相手は、皆この戦車よりも強力です。M24チャーフィどころか、M5スチュアート相手にも勝機はほぼありません。具体的に言うと、高価なAPCR弾を奴らの背面に打ち込んでも、まったく砲弾が貫通してくれずにノーダメージとなります。M2A2軽戦車が相手ならまだ勝ち目はありますが、向こうは12.7mm機関銃を装備しているのに対し、こちらは7.92mm機関銃しかないので相変わらず苦しいです。歩兵やジープを撃ってはクレジットやリボン経験値を稼ぎ、38t戦車を手に入れるまでは、ひたすら苦労することでしょう。ティーガーやティーガー2は確かに強力なのですが、そもそも投入できる戦場が絶対的に少ないです。なおドイツ重戦車の仮想敵はM26パーシングです。

Secondly, the difference of the quality of Tanks is serious. Excepting Russian, most people may believe "German tanks are best in WW 2 !!". Although it might be true, in this game, German tank soldiers must walk thorny path. Pz.I light tank(German beginning tank) is the worst tank, and it will be just a coffin in Tank battle.This tank bring only a pair of 7.92mm machine gun while American M2A2 LT has 12.7mm machine gun. For example, however when you shoot APCR(better penetration and more expensive ammo) against the back armor of M5 Stuart or M24 chaffee, it can NEVER penetrate(shoot out) their armor, even THEY ARE LIGHT TANKS!! In case, against M4 sherman or M26 persing? Needless to answer...... So, if you want to train German tanker, I recommand you to avoid tank battle with Pz.I. Attack only enemy infantry and non-armored vehicles, and gain EXPs of Light tank ribbon to buy 38t tank. It is the best light tank in German, and it can kill American light tank from its front. German Heavy tanks are actually good, but there are only a few opportunity to cast them in standard battle.

とまあ、こんな感じにドイツ側はかなりマゾい戦いを強いられますが、兵士が育って武器や車両が揃ってくれば、段々と楽しくなってきます。最初のうちは、1ゲームがすぐ終わるSkirmishルールの戦場でクレジットを稼ぐのが良いでしょう。

Like this, german player will fight under disadvantages. But, after getting well-trained soldier and purchase enough weapons, you will feel this game fun. While you are new player, you should join only "Skirmish" battle, and earn EXPs and Credits. Skirmish mode battle takes less time thans "Assault" mode battle.

また、これは米独両軍の新兵に気をつけて欲しいのですが、雇用したての歩兵は対戦車兵器を全く持っていませんし、買えません。もちろん、初期装備の手榴弾は対人用途にしか使えず、装甲車両には全くダメージが入らないため、先述の1号戦車にさえも遠距離から一方的に虐殺されかねないです。更にこのゲームの対戦車兵器は威力が弱く、紙装甲で有名なM18ヘルキャット相手ですら、パンツァーファウストを3発は直撃させないと撃破できません。対戦車手榴弾もあるのですが、これは戦車破壊リボンのレベルがかなり上がっていないと購入できず、敵戦車に肉薄するリスクを要するにも関わらず、戦車を一撃で撃破できるRed Orchestraシリーズの対戦車手榴弾とは違い、このゲームの対戦車手榴弾は、軽戦車を撃破するのにすら2~3個の使用を必要とされます。やはり敵戦車を撃破するには、こちらも戦車を出して対抗するのが1番安全なように思えます。

Finally, I need to tell an important thing to both US and German new players. The fresh soldier has no Anti-tank weapons, and they cannot buy them yet. Your Anti-human grenades cause quite NO damage against armor targets. It means, you can easily be slaughtered by even Pz.I light tank!! And, compared with "Red Orchestra" series, the damage of Anti-tank weapons is weaker and weaker. For exapmle. you will need 3 direct hit of Panzerfaust to kill M18 hellcat(even this tank-destroyer has only 13~25mm of armor). If you use Anti-tank grenade(this is so risky), it also needs twice or more. Using Panzerschreck or M1A1 Bazooka is more damage than Panzeraust, and much safer than Anti-tank grenade. But their prices are so expensive. After consuming all 50 rounds, you need to supply them at the same prices of buying new ones. As the result, when you get suffered by enemy tanks and you want to eliminate them, you should cast a tank, like enemy does.

Game is alot of fun, and has heaps of potential.
But ruined by idiot developers, battles are always one-sided, they cant even fix match making, consistantly one side will have atleast 2-3 more players than the other side, up to 5+ more.

Bad hacking protection

Devs need to focus on making the game more fair, gets boring quick when youre either dominating or getting your ♥♥♥ handed to you, no inbetween.

Edit: Its not P2W really, and this is probably the game i play the most now. But the devs need fix one sided battles. Started a game yesterday that was 2 v 5, when we got 2 extra players, so did they, 4 v 7. Then people see the game started badly and leave, becomes 3 v 7. Very common.

Matches like the one i just described, also wont let your friends join you...even though youre extremely outnumbered, they'll just sit in the queue...waiting, despite there being 4 available slots, and nobody new was able to join. My theory is that the game reserves a spot for people who have left, thus causing match making problems, it can be so easily fixed, yet the devs seem either stupid or ignorant.

Early Access Review
As one of the people I've played this game said about it "It's like that terrible girlfriend you stay with because the sex is awesome"

I'll start off with saying that I've only really played as a German character (currently only American or German) and that I have only been playing for the past month or two. This game can be broken up into two seperate games; the Hero aspect or the General aspect; I've only played the Hero aspect because the General is a serious grind and I started multiple characters I'll explain why in a bit.

Each character has its own set of XP and when appropriate levels are reached can be branched off into Armour (tanks), Fighters (aircraft), Paratroopers, Recon (snipers). One important thing to note is that when you branch off of infantry you cannot use that character as an infantry unit without switching branches (which costs credits), Credits are earned by your soldier pay (XP based) and your battle performance.

From the guys that I game with (important to get in a group if you want to be effective) there was a recent overhaul on the game that favoured the American side of things, don't expect this game to be historically accurate with weapons as there has to be some semblance of balance, and in this reviewers opinion it is near overwhelmingly one sided.

Overall as a free to play game I feel it is one of the best I've found, like all communities there are those who are helpful and those who are not. The tutorial is ♥♥♥♥♥ but that's why there are staged battles (that pay out just as well if not more then actual battles) I'll update the review as I play.

A 3/5 game for sure.

Pros:
+ WWII shooter
+ F2P
+ The scale of the war and the fact that it is entirely dynamic
+ Having a good game in this game leaves you feeling especially satisfied

Cons:
- Shooting and movement feels extremely clunky (see drunk Niko and Roman)
- The sound of the guns is ehhhh
- Massive amounts of grinding required to get anything
- Interface could be better

In short, if you like WWII games and have some spare time, you might find this game an amusing distraction.

I gave this game a chance because it started out with a good concept. As I have progressed in the game I have come to the conclusion that it is indeed pay to win. The game isn't retaining any skilled players due to it's high turnover rate resulting in boring and often stupid gameplay. There is little to no strategy in the game other than to purchase ingame fighting groups which are then defeated using an auto resolution system that favors the players who has spent more money. There are few matches to play other than during the peak hours. After playing this game for several hours and hearing alot of dissappointment from fellow veteran players who have invested in the game would not recommend this game to anyone.

Hackers and Griefers?

I have been playing FPS for 17 years, so I think I know how to aim, but apparently not in this game, have to be point blank with rifles.

As for hackers. They know exactly where you are, even in fog+bush, and able to head shot you several hundred meters with smg, some times behind walls too.

Griefers? Starter would be snipers camping at your spawn.

I had a lot of fun sneaking around in bushes and having some intense infantry battles, but then it all changed when I reached a certain rank. From here on out, I was getting pummelled by tanks, murdered by aircraft, and just generally destroyed by anything metal. First 8 hours: 10/10, everything after: 3/10.

Note to the designers: To maximize your user base, I would make the "training period" reflect the actual expected gameplay. Don't tease us with epic infantry hide and seek battles if what you're really offering is tank and fighter combat, you're just going to scare away the tank lovers, and attract the Thief-series COD players.

Definitely fun and it definitely has a lot of bugs to fix but the potential is ENORMOUS.

I say support the game and help them fix it. Cause i sure cant stop binge playing it.

Everyone says games are 1 sided but really it takes 1 single successful play to turn around a match even if they
have 97% successful capture you can still win.

Stick till you reach level 3 if you do you will see the potential and fall in love with this. :) Good luck

Here is the most honest review I can come up with:

HnG is a very fun game, the ambiance and gritty feeling of WW2 is conveyed well in this game. To most WW2 die hard fanatics, the arcade style of this game may not fit the bill for you. It can be very unrealistic at times and many of the weapons + vehicles operate on levels that are historically innaccurate. For an FPS, the game takes getting used to as things feel like they are clunky and slow at first. Some of the gun sights can be hard to get used to and there is alot of overcorrecting and sway handling to take account for on most guns to get good shots.

I primarily play as a Tanker, starting with the 19.99 tank pack that was previously offered. The tanks are awesome and provide a very interesting mode of play. Sticking your head out of the tank to get a good view of your surroundings can be risky as you can be sniped out of your tank and have it stolen.

There are snipers everywhere in this game, so running in open field is pretty much a death sentence for any unit. The sniper rifle is very easy to attain, even on infantry and you can easily get spawn camped by snipers.

If your just starting out without any gold, the game can be very frustrating and there is a P2W element. You may end up being sniper bait until you can afford something better, which takes time and grind.

Dropping a few bucks into a decent gun and vehicle can completely change the experience (for people who don't mind grinding up to get what you want, the option is there but it is painful -especially with high repair costs on certain items). With the cash shop, the redeeming factor is that your dollar goes a long way and you can get what you want to fit your playstyle relatively easily.

PROS:
-Great atmosphere and feeling once you get the controls down
-Many dynamic ways to play by having your soldiers take specific roles such as infantry or tank pilot
-Maps are well designed and a good size, although I'm hoping for larger full scale maps with all unit types
-The strategy aspect of the game is expensive to get into but looks interesting

CONS:
-Game balance. While fun HnG is far from balanced, especially with the US being far superior with their weapons and vehicles to the Germans. In staged battles the US Chaffe light tank is pretty much a medium tank with a light tank label. You can pretty much blow away every enemy tank uncontested with its 75mm turrent when the highest calibur that the german light tank turrets go is 35mm. Also the STUG tank hunter on the german side has no machine gun and the gunner seat is open, allowing your co-pilot to get sniped. The US hellcat equivalent has an enclosed gunner, built in machine gun, and better manuverability. The US thompson SMG is also OP as hell. Also as a tanker, regular infantry and mines/sticky bombs are overpowered. People regularly kamikaze themselves on you using motocycles and mines. The tanker has very little defense against this.
-Progression system: Repairs are expensive and sometimes you are forced into half completed battles that award you with less credits that it costs to refill your ammo. Grinding to get what you want can take a long long time without spending gold in the cash shop.
-Armor system. The armor system in the game is broken at the moment and doesnt work right, shells don't reflect right and I've been killed by 2 shots by an enemy tank on my Tiger II - the most armored tank in the game - even when the shells hit the front and most heavily armored section of my vehicle. It's pretty much just rolling dice right now.
-Snipers all over. I think the overabundance of snipers ruined the game, snipers should be limited to recon and the scoped rifle on infantry needs to go.
-P2W. You can grind to get anything in the game but it takes massive amount of times. Sinking a little bit of cash into the game to get something like the thompson or a better tank like the Chaffe can give you a huge advantage with the current game balance.
-Squad system. You can only form squads with people the same role as you, making it hard to create groups with friends if they like to play different roles such as infantry when you tank. Also tanking roles are divided into medium, heavy, and light category so if you want to play your heavy tank and your friend hasn't reached that tier you can't really squad with him. It's hard to find games where the vehicles or classes you want to play are deployed. I think this needs an overhaul.

OTHER NOTES:

As per the SPAATZ 2 update, I have been unable to get into the game to an action client crashed error that is rampant among many users. I've been out 5 days with a support ticket submitted to the game creators that has gone unanswered even thought its a critical issue. Be warned that support does not seem to respond in a timely manner so if you have technical issues, you could be out of luck for a long time.

VERDICT:

The game definitely feels like BETA. It's a fun as hell beta, but the balance issues, bugs, unplayability steaks, and whatnot cannot be ignored. I like the game, when it works its great! However, I won't deny that you can run into huge frustrations with P2W and certain game systems not functioning the way they should.

I feel that HnG has the potential to be a really great WW2 arcade game. I think some P2W adjustments, balance adjustments (especially on the german side), and polish of certain game systems is needed. For potential players I would advise letting the game cook in the oven a bit longer and to watch the title but not play it until another major update hits.

Also support can use alot of work, no player should be locked out of the game for more than 5 days with no support response.

In the current state of the game:

Is it fun? Yes.
However, in the game's current state with the bugs, P2W, unplayability, support issues, and bugged systems I could not honestly recommend it until these issues are ironed out.

Heroes and generals is one of those f2p games that offers the world, But falls greatly in short comings. This will range from the sheer ridiculas grinding you have to go through in order to have weapons on par with people that play from their pockets. Not what i am looking for in a shooter.....

There are far better free to play shooters out there i wanted to like this game there is so much loss potential.

Great WW2 game, not much pay2win when compared to most of free2play titles, as you can progress your character without need to spend any cent, and don't feel any major disadvantage over players who pay.
I recommend it to any WW2 enthusiast but also to fans of arcade fps.

Actually a good game for free (or two games)
I thought I needed to write the post about the game.

It is a good game and it is free, without the need to pay for it.

Yes, you get a small advantage if you buy premium. You get the chance to have another badge which gives you an edge. But you still need to cap, hit enemies and avoid getting hit. (Reto also needs to get some funds)

You get many good matches (Heroes) where you sometimes actually get in teams that play as teams and many bad games where you are not sure what your team mates are doing. Or worse you know what they are doing (tree faeries everywhere). But remember everone have their own agenda about what they need or want. If you want to get better with grenades you nead to use explosives.

But the strange part is that you can still enjoy games even if you or your squad needs ”to do everything by yourselves”. You also get more experience points, gold and warfunds if you ”have to do” a good performance.

It is more fun to play in squads you have friends that uses teamspeak, Ventrilo, Skype or other ways to speak with your squad. But you can still enjoy to enter a game or two and just play for the fun of it.

When you get a soldier/ officer of enough rank to get assault teams you actually get a another free game! You can also buy a officer with real money or gold you have earned. Not realistic that you earn enough gold, when you get 4 gold each day for free and the cheepest officer with a assault squad cost 1699 gold. These gold is best used to change the name on your heroes.

But the free real time strategy game (Generals) give you the oppurtunity to play as a soldier in your own assault team and that give you the chance to earn experience to your own squad!

When you get some (3 or more) assault teams you start to feel that you can help your side on the ”world map” to actaully capture or defend towns.

But there are some issues too, but the game is for free and some chenges have actually been to the better. You can play both sides, able to choose or make some maps unavaible when you play.

You have to remember that most times, your team members also wants to win, but they might not know how, so you have to show them the right way.

Go out and play!

I do like this game. But hacking is a problem. You'll need to spend a little money at first to build up your soldier or your going to have a slow grind. once you have a few things the game is more competitive, and you really dont need to spend any more to have fun. I have not tried the general side as that dosn't interest me . all and all not a bad ftp game . hopefully they'll will keep improving it

I really like the game. You can still have plenty of fun without paying for anything, but don't let it slip out of your mind that all the good stuff costs money. The only thing I don't like about the game is that it never seems easy to find a server. Sometimes it will take a few seconds, and other times I'll keep trying over and over and waiting for over 15 minutes and have no luck. That's the only reason I'm even leaving this review. I'll still give it a thumbs up as it's a great game, but wanted to note the server joining issue.

Let's cut the small talk, and get straight to the facts.

Pros?

Okay graphics. Not good, but not bad. The models are great, though. There are APCs, cars, IFVs, motorcycles, planes, tanks, and trucks. Bicycles too. A large number of weapons. Generous loadout customization. Good, large maps. Bullet drop counts. The RTS side to the game is great. The devs drink beer on their Twitch streams.

Cons?

The grinding is painful. Lots of monetization. Some things are unrealistic to the point where I think I'll cry. One game mode. No shortage of bugs. Room for improvement just about everywhere. The devs seem ignorant to requests that have been in the air for several years. Simple bugs remain unfixed.

Don't let this fool you, though. The game has a lot of potential. Yes, the bugs can be annoying at times, but updates are always on the horizon. Recently, the hit detection was improved dramatically. There are but two factions at the moment, Germany and the United States, but the Ruskies are coming, as are other potential factions. We should see updates dedicated to fixing bugs in the near future.

As for the playerbase... it's alright, I suppose. Sometimes you find ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s you want to teamkill, sometimes you find teammates you want to play again with. Sometimes it seems like your team is composed of drunken twelve-year-olds, sometimes it seems like your team is composed of true veterans. Sometimes your team has taken the word 'teamwork' and thrown it out the window and lit it on fire, sometimes the teamwork is so good that the only explanation is that you're all telepathically connected.

In the end? Hell yes! I would recommend Heroes and Generals all the way. I dream of what it could be like in a year or two, though.
