Trivia

Due to pressure from publisher Ubisoft to launch within a specific release window, the entire production of the game was completed by Gearbox in just under a year. The release schedule was so tight that the Xbox version of the game was sent to manufacturing prior to final certification approval from Microsoft. The original prototype consisted of the level Crack of Dawn (which was expanded and included in the final game). The PS2 version was ported by Ubisoft Shanghai, who completely changed the opening credits sequence and removed the original developer's names. See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Sgt. Matt Baker: [narrating] I remember the first time I saw Legget. It was in the breakfast tent. He was cutting a hard boiled egg into small pieces with a knife, like ham. It occurred to me that I never, in my 22 years of existence, seen a man cut an egg into slices like that!

Best War Game of All Time
22 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I usually start off every review with something that sums up the review in one quick sentence. This is called a topic sentence. It's something that gets straight to the point and keeps the audience interested. So my topic sentence for this review will be 3 words. Just 3. Here it is: BEST WAR GAME EVER! Okay, maybe that's 4 words, but you get my point. But seriously, this game is amazing. Being the best war game that I've ever played is pretty good, because I have played A LOT of war games. When I say "the best war game", I mean it is the most realistic war game of our time. I don't consider Ghost Recon 2 as a war game, because it is based in the future. When I say "the best war game", I'm talking about the ones that are based on actual wars. So that is pretty much the entire Call of Duty series, and some other random WW2/Vietnam games. But Brothers in Arms is something special. It brings great graphics, amazing story, realistic characters, and incredibly fun game play to the table. The opening sequence of the game will really show you that you are in for something. Because it is probably the most graphic opening sequence that I've ever seen in a game. The whole story gives me something that I have never seen in my entire gaming career. Yes, I am referring to my gaming as a career now. Sad. I know. You might think at some points, that you are watching a movie, because that is how the story is displayed. And that is good. Now I will get onto where the game really soars. The game play. It is fast-paced, exciting, and tense. Commanding your squad is very necessary. You must always keep them in cover, and try as much as possible to keep them alive, because they are important. Creating cover fire with your teams commands is used an incredible amount. So when this is done, you must come from the side, under cover, and take out the enemy from their side. This is used so often, because the AI in the game is so intelligent. They will shoot at the most important target to them, and take cover wherever they can find it. And trust me, they will definitely be able to find it. Sadly though, the game play is also the one place where the game sags. Commanding your two squads becomes a little annoying, because if you don't pay attention to them, they will get killed. Commanding a tank becomes tedious, because they tend to be more of a nuisance, then a help. The multi player XBOX Live, and system link play is nothing special. But oddly refreshing. With no death match (boo), but mission based team play. The worst thing about the multi player though, has to be the use of only 4 players. That is just boring. But after the game has been played and you can really get into the story line, you will be very happy. The game strives on the single player campaign, and is probably the most authentic World War 2 game I've ever played. Definitely one to get.

SCORE: 9.5 out of 10
