Brothers In Arms: Chums With Guns


There’s nothing more fun than helping a friend shoot some Nazis, and I happen to know that to be factually true. Lucky for all of us, then, that Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway features nothing but the teamwork required to gun down the 1940s’ naughtiest nationalists. The following trailer shows off some of the action from later stages of the game. If you happen to be a reader of PC Gamer UK you can read my thoughts about the Gearbox game in the forthcoming issue. (The Spore review cover, which is spilling over with general excellence.) Anyway, trailer:

    Oh Jim, your writing style is delightful to read. Also, I happen to be looking forward to this.

    ps, im not gay. And there’s an error in the first line of your post!

    Jim and MetalcCircus sitting in a tree… no that just doesn’t work really does it? :p

    Both of the previous Brothers In Arms games were very solid, and even with everything else on the horizon this is probably the only game I’m certain I’ll be purchasing.

  3. Diogo Ribeiro says:

    Hmm, the vicissitudes of machismo and comradie when applied to explosion-propelled Nazis. Can’t say WW2 still appeals to me, but I’ll be sure to keep an open mind about it.

    So there is. That’ll teach me to smoke crack before blogging.

    Don’t blame your mistakes on your drug habit. I smoke crack every day and it doesn’T aagsgjvkv.v..v,as.g…

    Certainly not, I smoke weed every day and, er,
    um
    yeah.

    I liked that clip of the player setting up an ambush for a patrolling German squad, that tells me this is a little more open than the others.

    @ Jim: “That’ll teach me to smoke crack before blogging.”

    I’m not clear if you’ve just learned to smoke crack before blogging, or NOT to smoke crack before blogging. Or if you are so cracked-out that you can’t tell the difference, or if you are so cracked-out that there is no difference .

    Either way it sounds like the party is at RPSHQ tonight!

  9. CrashT says:

    Isn’t there a party there every night?

    Ah Brothers in Arms – a game brimming with Bromance.

    “…the 1940s’ naughtiest nationalists…”

    My new favourite RPS phrase. Not sure what my previous one was, but this one made me lol, as the kids say.

    It’s worth mentioning that pre-ordering Hell’s Highway on Steam will get you a free copy of Road to Hill 30.

    It seems you can get this deal from the Ubi download service as well.

    Except in Great UK-land (and the rest of Yurop?) where neither are available at all on Steam.

  14. Chris Evans says:

    Man Raised By Puffins raises a good point (one that I mentioned on my blog) and the fact that Ubi are sticking to their US only methods on Steam is bloody well annoying. Jolly good to know that I am not all that interested in BiA :D

  15. Weylund says:

    Indeed, although I suspect my lack of interest is more defensive than anything else, much like my “forgetting” where my Pirates! copy is stored.

    Wargames with “characters”, though… who’da thunk? Is this the new revolution? And there I was thinking that SEAL Team had quite the narrative.

    Erp. I said “characters”. I meant… “personalities”. Heh.

  16. araczynski says:

    screw steam(ingpileofshite), that aside, i can’t wait to kill some more nazis.

  17. Cedge says:

    araczynski:
    “steam(ingpileofshite)”, eh? Do you get all of your sentiments and jokes from 2005?

  18. Noc says:

    They WERE having a sale.
