OXM: Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway Review

You're not going to win this one - the Nazis are. And that's not a plot spoiler, it's the consequence of setting an historically authentic World War II shooter bang in the middle of 1944's disastrous Operation Market Garden.

This September invasion of mainland Europe via Holland went wrong for the Allies when Hitler's crack units counter-attacked and held their ground. The operation consequently resulted in failure, and the Nazi war machine rolled efficiently over another year's dreams of peace by Christmas. It was to be the Nazis' final great victory and a terrible trial by fire for every soldier involved.

Verdict:
*The most authentic WWII sim around

Uppers:
* Incredible realism
* Brilliant level design
* Great tactical depth
* Good replay value

Downers:
* Poor, confused plot
