"Polished" feel, reasonable length, variety in weapons
|» Pros|| |
Repetitive, Scripted Gameplay, Sub-Par graphics, no new WW2 themes, no interesting storyline, terribly boring multiplayer modes
|» Cons|| |
If you've only got one moment, I'm going to cut to the chase: This is MOHAA with a few updates.

It's the same setting, the same scripted sequences to the same objectives, the same "AI Squad," the same chintsy quasi-realistic physics and damage models, and the same "ok, but not great" graphics and sound.
If a game is going to be worth playing, it's got to do SOMETHING original to separate it from other titles out there, either in terms of gameplay or setting or graphics/audio. This game accomplishes none of the above.
The Q3 Graphics are OK, but not as good as RTCW (another Q3 engine game) or any recent game that uses a different engine (Max Payne 2, Halo, etc.); the audio is OK but not nearly as good as Halo, ESPECIALLY in terms of 3d sound... things that are behind you don't clearly SOUND behind you as they do in Halo and other recent titles. The voice acting is again, ok -- not so bad as to make you cringe, but nowhere near as good as the voice acting in, say, original Deus Ex.
At the end of the day, the gameplay is repetitive, unoriginal, and unsatisfying, the graphics are okay, but nothing to write home about, we've all played enough WW2 games lately to make us want to cry, and if you think the audio is good, you need to play something besides MOHAA.
What should have been branded MOHAA 2 and sold as a $19 expansion pack isn't worth your $49 dollars or your time.
