Archives For Shooters

What’s up ladies and gentleman! 2014 is coming to a close and we are hoping that 2015 really turns everything around. We have great writers coming on board, and more than enough content to post for your viewing pleasure–but we forgot to mention that we have a new show. These very very important things that slip our minds. For that we apologize for not trafficking it through the appropriate channels, but we hope you enjoy it nonetheless.

Back again, and here, for your reading pleasure is number 3 on my Top Ten Shooters list.

Brothers In Arms: Road to Hill 30

Some of you may have heard of Borderlands.  It was kind of a big deal.  Well, before that, the developer of Borderlands, Gearbox studios, did ports of games, chiefly among them were Halo and Counterstrike.  But then, in 2005, they released their first IP, Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30, and I instantly fell in love.

Some of you may be saying “A WWII shooter?  Thats been done.  I’m sick of Nazis and M1 Garands.” To you I say Bah!  Also, I say that Brothers in Arms was one of the earlier WWII shooters, when the genre still had a few tricks up its sleeves, and boy do they show.  The main draw is the squad control, allowing you to direct your squads movements and focus their fire on specific targets.  You will become a master of the Four F’s, which are Find, Fix, Flank, and Finish.

This may seem like a minor thing to some, but on harder difficulties, its an absolute necessity.

In addition to the tactical elements in play, Brothers in Arms boasts impressive gunplay, rife with realism and polish.  Historical accuracy was of huge importance for the team at Gearbox, from tactics and locals, to weapons and uniforms.  Experience D-Day with the 101st, dropping in behind enemy lines to help soften the defenses on the shorelines.  Gearbox also creates a great cast of characters to accompany you, each with unique personalities, which immediately sucks you in and plants you firmly in the boots of SSG. Matt Baker.  With both the realism you want, and the entertainment you crave, Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 is a must play for the FPS fan.
