Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway review

 

Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway is relentless in emphasising the horrors of war with an engaging psychological story and high-intensity combat that both entertains and petrifies you every step of the way.

Stellar single player strategy and story in Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway make for the best (offline) World War II experience to date.

Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway

 

The Brothers In Arms series has finally made its way on to the current generation of consoles with Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway. Much like the previous iterations of the series this title is also set in World War 2. For those unfamiliar with the...

Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway

 

Hell's Highway unfolds during World World II's ill-fated Operation Market Garden, which saw Allied forces deliver the largest ever airborne assault down onto Holland in an effort to not only combat German occupation, but to also cross the Rhein and...

Furthermore, the temptation to plough onward with a simple FPS approach is made all the more tangible as most player deaths come about while using precious seconds to quickly peep out of cover to assign orders, at which point Baker cannot fire his...

Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway (360)

 

Call of Duty for people who prefer grenades to not arrive in multiples of thirty.

Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway manages to rise above the now over familiar WW2 setting to be counted as tactical squad based shooter worthy of anyone’s time and money in an overpopulated marketplace filled with copycats and clones that lack half as...

Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) review

 

Hell's Highway starts with a summary of the squads efforts from earlier efforts, telling the tale of what happened in previous games. The summary is done akin to the opening of a TV show, with a "previously on" set of scenes shown before the game kicks...

All in all, the best way to describe BiA: Hell's Highway is that it's a nice evolution of its predecessor rather than been a true revolution of the developers efforts from last gen. In places you'll probably wish Gearbox could have done more to make...

Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway (Ubisoft)

 

Gripping Story, disturbing authenticity, awesome audiovisuals

Insipid, busted multiplayer

Stellar single player strategy and story in Hell's Highway make for the best (offline) World War II experience to date.

Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway (X360) Review

 

Despite a few missteps, Hell's highway is a road worth travelling.

Shooter/strategy formula from past titles still works great; great enemy AI; mostly excellent presentation; strong storyline; smooth controls

Missing key features from past titles, including co-op skirmish mode; graphical glitches and sloppy cutscenes ruin immersion; co-operative AI is occasionally sketchy; multiplayer is only fun under ideal circumstances

Also, the game has gone from a damage-based health system to a regenerating one. Some may like the change, some may not, but one thing's for sure, it makes the game a whole lot easier than it used to be. I personally wished that they kept the health...

Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway review

 

Bringing Brothers in Arms back to gamers is a reason to celebrate, because both previous instalments were bulging with story, and had an innovative squad control system making you examine all combat situations with a level of attention not normally...

Hell's Highway may look the business when it begins, but all the good work becomes undone in the familiar setting of WWII.

Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway

 

For the uninformed, BiA is a squad-based tactical shooter, focusing on combat strategy and group tactics, as opposed to putting you into the role of a highly trained one-man army (like a majority of modern-day action games). Ubisoft promised few twists...

You'll enjoy the story, characters and the realistic squad-based combat

Much of the experience is hindered by AI quirks, generally linear and repetitive gameplay

Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway

 

Despite the fact that Hell's Highway takes place in a familiar setting, the combat of the game differs greatly from other first person shooters on the market. Instead of being a one man army accompanied by four to five useless AI teammates, Brothers in...

You’ll want to stay in cover, command your squad to flank, suppress, and engage enemies as much as possible. Most squad based shooters of the past have had a nasty stigma due to terrible AI coding. However this is not the case for Hell’s Highway. Your...
