Look for the game on sale ,The infantry combat is not so good .But if you like tanks and amour and planes the game is well worth it .Some epic ww2 tank battles can be made and lots of community created missions of historical tank battles from ww2 eastern front .Ohh and like arma make sure you got a good cpu and dont think a laptop will do the job :)

I bought this because I play alot of ArmA 2. I liked and played Red Orchestra 2 a bit too but RO 2 just left me wanting something deeper. I've read alot of negative reviews but I have to say that this is a great game for alot of reasons.
The first things that's gonna hit you is that it's really just ArmA 2 set in WW2 but all the things that made ArmA 2 great make this game great too. There are thousands of little hidden surprises to discover.
Sure there werent alot of people in servers but just like ArmA 2 i just created my own offline server and the game filled it with bots just like Arma 2. For me that means infinite replay value. (and thats before i even get to the campaign or scenarios.)
Some people say this game is more system heavy but it looks just like Arma 2 to me...what i did notice was that the game lagged out on the Normandy D-day scenario...just too much going on for the game to handle..everything else ran fine though.

The skins and weapons look fantastic and flying those ww2 fighters is more fun than ever...youd swear you were playing IL2 sturmovic.

Straight away I can see that this game is going to give me months of single player replay value just like ArmA 2.
Many people complain about jittery controls on the Arma Games...all i can say is that if you have a decent PC and dial in the game then it runs smooth and accurate. I always turn of all post processing and anti liasing, mouse smoothing etc because I want the controls to be as fast and accurate as possible. The game still looks great and it's as responsive as any FPS if you do that.

This game really is a real WW2 simulator. Open world and huge. All the things that RO2 aspired to be but didnt quite achieve.
Like any game there will be the odd bug or two but I'm very glad i got this game (in the christmas sale)

Yes..you will probably have trouble finding online players but if like me you just wanted single player with infinite replay value then this game definitely hits that mark. Personally I don't care if nobody knows about this game, to me it just makes it one of those hidden gems that is enjoyed by a select few. I've not played the 1944 Arma 2 mod people are referring to here, but now that I have this game I dont see why Id need to...this game has everything I wanted.

This game was ok for it being on the Arma 2 engine, i bought it a few years ago and at that time there wasnt large online community. If you have played arma 2 then you should know that the infrantry are going to be clunky, it seems like most of the better animations went into the tanks and thats a good thing. also a few intresting notes is that the DLC for it seemed like it was rushed, at least the audio aspecs, the US dialouge and weapons are low quality. Also some people compare this game to the 1944 mod for Arma 2, the Arma 2 mod usually get updated compared to this game that seems like steam wont update it anymore. Also this game lacks mod support, so you cant add stuff.

Pros: WW2 Eastern front, Tank combat, maps are large.

Cons: Lack of online community, Clunky combat,


i would have to give this a 6/10 it could have been made better.
