You start at Pearl Harbor, right in the action, your ship has been bombed bij de JAP suïcide pilots and you have to fight youre way out of the sinking ship. You get dropped in a little boat behind a machine gun and starts shooting the airplains, there are thousands, it is impossible. But you get out of it alive. The it really starts. After a while you get dropped in the jungle where suicide japanese attack you with their guns and swords.
Graphics: 8,6/10 - they look good
The graphics look good, in game movies sometimes got framedrops. Also real historical movies (b&w).
The sound is great, here I have no real complaints. The ambient sounds fit the environments, and the music fits the mood/action. Also the sound uses dolby pro logic II and is optimized for THX
It's an FPS, controls are easy to learn (almost the same like any other fps) Aiming needs a bit learning, but you get used to it. The ambience is really stressfull, enemy pop out of the ground and out of trees. They are everywhere, they can see you, you can't see them.
There are a lot of fun parts in the game, such as riding a elephant with a machine gun on it. Blowing up the bridge over the river kwai!!
Some levels have a bit to long of the same.
Co-op mode for singleplayer and multiplayer up to 4 players splitscreen(+ up to 4 bots)
Cool multiplayer maps. fast action.
Only campaign is a bit short, with a bad ending:( end levels bit more of the same, and sometimes ai is strange.
Overall 8.5/10 - Nice fps title, with fun co-op multiplayer and dm If you like moh, you'll like this, if you like WWII games, you'll like this. YOU WILL LIKE IT
Too bad it hasn't got live support.
