Players familiar with World War 2-themed console shooters such as the Call of Duty games will immediately recognize the sort of play on offer BROTHERS IN ARMS 2: GLOBAL FRONT, a deep and polished first-person shooter for the iPad. It leads players through familiar theatres of combat around the world, with players pitted against both Nazis and the Japanese in bloody, realistic combat.

However, while the excellent graphics, sound effects, and voice acting help to create an authentic atmosphere, the awkward and often imprecise virtual controls will make it difficult for many players to find their footing. The skilled players we found online are proof that some players have overcome this hurdle, but judging by how few players we encountered in live games, we think those who are comfortable with these controls are the exception to the rule. It’s a good game for grownups, but the iPad may not be an ideal platform for it.
