Brothers in Arms Road to Hill 30 [PC Game]
Developed by Gearbox Software - Ubisoft Entertainment (2005) - Squad-Based Shooter - Rated Mature
Although it offers its share of authentically equipped, WWII shooter action, Brothers in Arms is a squad-based game that requires
players to manage and deploy their three-soldier teams intelligently in order to meet mission challenges. Instead of a
straightforward run-and-gun progression, the game's situations are designed such that players may need to move their men
around the battlefield to recon the surroundings, provide cover fire, and pin down the enemy, before they move in for the final
The adventure begins with the D-day airdrop over Normandy, and missions follow situations faced by various members of the
real-life 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment. The player's character, Matt Baker, is also based on the stories of an actual World
War II paratrooper.
In addition to its action and tactical challenges, Brothers in Arms also incorporates some role-playing styled decision-making.
While the game's AI is intended to provide for competent, self-preserving squad-members, is also endows them with human wants
and fears. Baker must consider his teammates interests as if they were real people -- his "Brothers in Arms" -- in order to keep
their trust and have them follow his orders effectively.
From the Manufacturer: Created by Texas-based Gearbox Software, Brothers in Arms aims to be one of the most realistic and
authentic World War II shooters ever. Based on a true story, the game puts players in the role of Sgt. Matt Baker, a D-Day
paratrooper squad leader as he leads the squad through the European campaign. Each battlefield has been meticulously recreated
