Like many of you i grew up with this series so it's a must have in my collection.
For people new to it, i guess i can sum up the gaming experience thusly:
-move character/have him do some action
-pray he doesn't die/get caught
-save

Repeat until end game.

Very Good and challing old classic from 90's, when games still reguired use of the head!
I might be little biased cause i grew up with games like this but:

+Classic
+You actually have to think hard, what to and how to do it
+Very challinging even in easy difficulty
+Limited resources
+Contains actual WW2 footage

-Visuals are from 90's, but are playable is you dont mind bit less pixels
-AI is kinda stupid, so its not reacting realisticly into situtations
-Some enemy units might get stuck for short period of time, if they are in alert mode
-Personally all most all missions were missing the briefing sounds
-Voice actors sound pretty good, but after while you start to get annoyed by constant repeat of "yes sir" "right away sir" and so on
-Vehicles are terrible to drive, but pretty usefull

If you look for game what callenges you, you dont mind playing game developed in 90's and you dont get ♥♥♥♥♥♥ when you fail constantly, then this is for you!
