What did you think of Brothers in Arms? Did it live up to the hype, or was it just another shooter? Is it worth getting? I'm considering buying it, but I've not seen that much beside pics, and the graphics look a bit bad at times.

The graphics are great, and my card is fairly old. If you are looking for a true WWII shooter, and not just a Quake game with skins resembling WWII - era equipment, this game is for you. If you want to survive you really do have to utilize your squads. It's just like Raven Shield except a bit more difficult in my opinion.
I've only played the demo but I found it very fun and easy to pick up. I haven't played Raven Shield but I think this subject matter appeals to me more, anyway. Success with no injuries was especially rewarding.
I've now played the demo too, and I think it's pretty good. The one thing I hate is the weapon models, they just look really blurry and "soft" almost, and downright undetailed and ugly. The gameplay is fun though, blowing people apart with grenades, shootgin them, hitting them, the commands are nice and easy too, just like Repbulic Commando. My other issue is the gore, people's arms get blown off, and yet they're reletively no blood?

The game uses the Unreal engine, so the graphics are pretty good. The rag doll effects in Unreal powered games get on my nerves though, they don't look real enough. The multiplayer was fun to me, but ever since the latest patch came out the number of servers has dropped drastically for some reason. I think its patch related. Overall it's a pretty good game, but for me there wasn't much replay value.

I think that the multiplayer could benefit from some of the normal shooter fare modes, like deathmatch, team DM, capture the flag maybe, etc; as long as you add more players (4 max is just a bit too low). As for single player, it's pretty damn fun. I finally beat Carentan and I'm defending Hill 30, ATM. The game's a *bit* difficult, but it's fun. My only issue is the sound. Someone in my squad was speaking and I spun around for about 10 seconds until I realized that it was Hartsock and it looked like he was murmuring, and the sound was coming from behind me for some reason. The checkpoints piss me off a bit, but you just have to suck it up and deal with it. A crosshair would've been nice (not too good of a shot, especially when the guns are so freakin inaccurate). And other than the crappy weapons models, I love the game, way more intense than COD was. You can't just run through this game and expect not to die, since there are no health packs, it takes strategy to win battles. And I loves them blow'd off limbs. And the cows.
BIA was great, then it betray me, i can't play it anymore even i have a cdkey
so i h8 UBI rite now
I would die without GF

Riles sums it up fairly well, but I must add my 10 cents.
I find the game to be amazing overall, probably the best WW2 shooter I've played in terms of raw realism. The graphic are gorgeous (as it uses the Unreal 3 engine), and the tactical, sqad-based gameplay takes on a level of authenticity in both urban and rural environments that I've not experienced in any shooter of it's type.
In the end, I think it definitely lives up to it's hype. :nodding:
TorpovA crosshair would've been nice
Dude, there are crosshairs in the game. By default, they are turned off. Go to the Main Menu, click "Options" then after that, "Game Options" then turn on the crosshairs. :)
