First Love: Brothers in Arms

OnlySP's Simon Squire reminisces about the Brothers in Arms franchise and how it was the game that got him to switch from casual gaming to it being one of his main pasttimes (Brothers in Arms, Brothers In Arms Hell's Highway, Brothers in Arms Series, Brothers in Arms: Furious 4, PC, PS2, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360)

I thought the first two were great, and challenging. The third was utter drivel which lost its grit by focusing on trying to make it a 'heavy' emotional story experience which failed and to top it off an extremely anti climactic ending. Nothing says challenge like being able to casually wander around an enemy tank. But is is Gearbox and they do, as of late, pump out the garbage.

I loved the first two so much. I just wish Gearbox would take this series back to its routes.

Imagine a game with next generation visuals that has fully open, historically accurate towns and villages in France and says to you this is the situation, these are the odds, here is what is available to you, figure out how to win.

I never thought I would miss WW2 shooters but I would take a high quality one next generation no doubts in my mind. Just a shame that instead Gearbox has shown that cartoony Inglorious Basterds version of Brother in Arms, That is NOT where this series should go at all.
