In the mission 'Their Land, Their Blood', which features Sgt. Reznov, who's voiced by Gary Oldman, it's possible to pick up a "Death Card", a helpful item in most co-op games, called "The Joker". Oddly enough, Oldman stars as Detective Gordon in The Dark Knight (2008), in which The Joker, who's calling card is exactly that, a Joker card, is the main antagonist. See more »


The end credits announce that the game is dedicated to "the veterans who sacrificed their lives". However, if they had sacrificed their lives they would not, by definition, be veterans. See more »


Commissar Markhov: On the Fuhrer's birthday, a barrage of Katyusha rockets will tear Berlin to pieces! With your bullets... with your bayonets... with your bare hands. Do the same to their wretched soldiers!

This, Is War!
24 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

While I admit I am a bit behind the curve on video games and play on a Play Station 2, this is still a stunning experience of war and an incredibly exhausting, frightening, and challenging World War II game. I am perplexed by the response of some reviewers to the fact that this is Second World War game and another stirring tribute to the soldiers who made such horrendous sacrifices to defeat the Axis and save freedom for all. The war with Japan is especially stupendous with maniacal banzai charges that will have you running for your life and an astonishing attack accomplished as you ride on a machine gun mounted elephant. There are few too many such fantastically exciting moments to mention but time after time you will find yourself pushed to the limits of your endurance and suffering the fatigue of intense combat in unendurable environments. Beautifully produced and superbly scripted and scored, this will remain a classic for those of us who salute the brave combat veterans of the bloodiest conflicts in history. One can only hope many more World War Two games will be produced of such excellence so that we may continue to grow in our understanding of that time and our respect for what the heroes endured eternally.
