Have You Played… Brothers In Arms: Road To Hill 30

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Like Graham, I’ve always felt bad for the Brothers In Arms series of games. The WWII shooter was well into its fatigue stage by the time these games got around to doing something intelligent with it. Rocking up to the beaches of Normandy…

Brothers Disarmed: Furious 4 Now Its Own Thing

I've never entirely understood the outrage that Gearbox's Tarantino-esque shooter Furious 4 was tagged as a splinter cell of their rather more sober World War 2 franchise Brothers In Arms, but perhaps I'm just not in tune with the common upset-on-the-internet man. Regardless, those who decided that F4 was surely a replacement for rather than an off-shot of BIA will doubtless be relieved to hear…

Brothers In Arms Furious 4 A “Test Bed”

According to this article on Giant Bomb, Gearbox are saying that the original, serious story for Brothers In Arms might not be over, and that the wacky craziness evident in the Furious 4 trailer is simply a "test bed" for a new direction. The tale of staff sergeant Matthew Baker, on which the earlier parts of the franchise were based, is apparently set to continue.…

Brothers In Arms: “Realism”

This latest trailer for Hell's Highway is long and detailed, with loads of commentary and explanation from the development team. It covers the change in tactical balance to make the player-commanded squads more powerful, the destructible scenery, the gore, and the tweaks in detail that make the game more realistic. I've been lucky enough to play an early version of this, and I'm enormously excited.…

The Long, Winding Road To Hell

Not nearly as exciting as the much more important news above but Ubidays has produced a couple of new trailers, this time for Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway. The BiA series has somewhat slipped under my radar, despite many proclaiming them better than Call of Duty, and I really ought to catch up, but I have this whole thing about squads and not wanting the…

“I had to lead them… through Hell.”

I know loads of you disgree like booze-inflated MPs at Prime Minister's Question time, but Brothers In Arms remains my favourite World War II shooter. This makes me anticipate Hell's Highway's revisit to this familiar terrain all the more. The game should be out in October, and I do hope it reprises the excellent co-op skirmish missions from the last games. Ooh, and here's a…

Games For 2008 – Brothers In Arms 3

If there’s one thing that came out of all the hoo-ha around our Age of Decadence interview (other than that willful antagonism can be an awesome promotional tool), it’s that there’s something of a split between people who believe mainstream games are justly and necessarily slicker of interface than their more fiddly ancestors, and people who think that no, they’re just getting simpler, because gamers…
