Horrible stealth gameplay...
Not a very good start when the majority of the game is based around being quiet...
Let's start with some examples.
I threw a rock in a canyon to distract someone.
Krauts for miles heard the rock hitting the ground and went to high alert.
Welrod rounds can bounce off of garrison/field caps.
This will get you killed quite a few times.
[At this point, I should mention that you can't save on the hardest difficulty]
.30-06 rounds also bounce off soft caps and helments...
Germans drink a lot of milk, that's why they don't go down when I shoot them in the spine with the aught-six. Most of the time it takes 2-3 rounds to the chest to kill someone with it. (When in actual combat, not "sniping")
Monty fed the commonwealth fruit-gushers, that's why their teeth are purple.http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=277146819
The multiplayer coop syncing is horrible, germans will slide around and go into t-pose trying to load the correct animations.
Your character gives wonderful clues as to when the Korps are going to act on you.
"Hmmm...I think I better lay some traps here..." he blurts out while sneaking down a path.
When the ♥♥♥♥ does hit the fan, don't try using the melee feature. 100% death. The player's animation goes too long, giving the enemy time to clear leather and kill you before you regain control.
I don't know how many of you are big into history...but in all the books I've read and all the documentaries I've watched...Never seen a "German" officer's cap like this. I know it's an Italian cap, but I have no idea why it has two stars on it and is being worn by a German.http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=277188690
Go buy some army men from the store and play with them at the beach...It's a better North Africa experience...
Monty and Rommel frown at this game.

To the gentleman in the comments.
Let's be realistic here, the game gave me an M1 Garand (A weapon with heavy and slow rounds) to be used for sniping. If the developers wanted me to sit there and "snipe" they'd have given me something that wasn't semi-automatic and held 8 rounds. They also wouldn't have given me an SMG or grenades. You can hear the character mention that I should lay traps, the player is CLEARLY meant to proceed that way. Sorry that I don't like going to the "Sniper Nests" the game marks on my map and attempt to play the game in a sandbox style, like the store page highlights.
Furthermore, regardless of how I play the game, the bullet damage still remains the same. In the video you can see me empty rounds into enemies at close range and nothing happens.
Perhaps you were distracted by some of the related videos, I'll provide you with a still frame of where I shoot the enemy.http://i.imgur.com/SzW7U4j.png
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that getting a rifle round through the chest is going to kill you, especially if it's lined up at your spine.
I'm curious if you've even played the game. At that part in the level, I am required to go and "search" the bodies of the officers I kill. What is the point of me climbing up to some pre-made "nest" to kill the officers if I only have to go down there and rub my fingers on their uniforms? It's pointless and a waste of time. The main appeal to the game is a "sandbox" approach the missions...
