    Buy it!

    I can't stress this enough. If your PC can handle it and you loved the battle scenes in Saving Private Ryan you'll love this.


    The Omaha beach scene I played yesterday still has me shaken up. :D

    High on action, low on atmosphere.

    That's my verdict. Not a patch on Wolfenstein atmosphere wise but the action really rocks and I am enjoying it immensely.

    Disgusting fault at the beginning of the game. I have to disable my internet connection before being able to play the game. There is a patch for this that doesn't help matters.

    How a company could release a game of this quality and then ask users to disable their internet connection every time you play.

    Abysmal, horrendous, quality control here.

    I still like the game though.

    Regards

    I agree with you about the atmosphere, but even though its not at Wolfenstien levels the game seems to compensate for this.

    I havnt experienced the connection issue you mention, in fact yesterday I played a multiplayer game whilst dialled up.

    What exactly happens then?

    Update: Experienced a problem this morning after playing multiplayer yesterday. It seems Gamespy software is the problem, not MOHAA. If you head over to the EA website there is a discussion including fixes, beware on WinXP though, it has 2 fixes, only the 2nd worked on mine.

    I have not played much of this game, only the Omaha beach part on a friends PC. I quite enjoyed it but dont you think there is something a bit sick about it considering that it was an actual real event?

    I know Saving private Ryan was also about the landings but that was shocking and did make you thank your lucky stars that you were not around to be subjected to that experience.

    Computer games should not make entertainment of real events especially when considering the loss of life. It cheapens the heroism of the people that were there.

    If we continue with this we will have games where you have to escape from the world trade centre before it collapses after the plane hit.

    I love the first person shoot em ups but the ones from the past are all make believe spaceships or haunted castles and maybe thats were they should be left.

    Just my opinion.

    Well, MOHAA is quite good, but it boils down to a lot of sniping during the whole game..... at least for me.

    You might be right about "real event" interpretations, if you consider the kids who have never seen real footage/material.
    But I think it's ok, it helps to involve you in the gameplay, even if it is not realistic... Perhaps they could have additional info, some kind of documentary "extra" in games which recreate historic events?

    What do you people think?

    Hopefully they'll improve some elements of gameplay in a point release.
    The sniper hit is deadly even if you get hit in the arm. The rocket launcher is not deadly enough at close quarters imo.
    Sniping is appropriate in some games. Omaha, for example. But it's too effective, meaning the defensive gunners get sniped too easily. Snipers should miss some of the time even if their aim is spot on. And maybe hit when it isn't. Just like real life.
    For close quarter maps, the shotgun is a fave of mine. If you run into an enemy, unless they have a shotgun, you're pretty much going to kill them right away.
    If anyone is playing multiplayer, for the moment, I'm 'Mr Grimsdale'. Come say hi and shoot me in the head :)

    You mean have a shaky sniper rifle to reflect your heart beat - like in RTCW.


    Good idea.
