Is It Any Good?

Kids say (3):

The easy-to-use squad controls do not overly complicate gameplay. This is a good thing, because the enemies in this realistic and challenging game are smart, vicious, and fire bullets that do realistic damage. The game features elegant visuals, notable for their restraint. The finer, understated details -- such as marked gravestones or waving grass in a field -- make the game's realism all the more impressive.

Characters use all varieties of obscenities. And while the violence is not gratuitous, it is war, and Brothers in Arms presents a gamut of brutal images -- dead soldiers hanging from trees, blood spurting from fresh wounds, and gory sheets used to cover the dead. The opening cut scene contains some of the worst the game has to offer in the way of language and violence. While the violence is too much for sensitive players, older teens will appreciate the complexity, and the history presented here.
