This Game Is Not Actually That Bad...

Anyone else agree? The game is actually quite nice looking, the forests / jungles are great looking if slightly prone to pop up.

The AI is terrible but its not too much of a problem as its more on the easy side, not unfairly hard.

Sound is generally good apart from the voice overs and the added History channel docu bits are great, especially for a history buff for me

Surely I cant be the only one?

It is pretty bad man. Really horrible even, the glitches are laughable and so far I am not at all impressed with anything visually I have seen. Could have easily been a early Xbox 1 game. But I was not expecting much so it does not upset me.

Im a big fan of WWII games so im probly biast in this view but i thought it was a pretty good game. But being able to comlete the game in under 2 hours on the hardest level is quite frankly disgraceful.

I like the historical briefs given before every mission. It was cool learning about America's involvement in the War specifically in the Pacific region. However, everything else about the game was laughable. The gunplay is pretty lackluster, and even though it takes place during the second world war, how many times do I have to mosey my way through trenches?
