Brothers in Arms - Hell's Highway
Middle of the road.
Hell's Highway proves to be an exciting, engaging ride despite a few bumps along the way.
What Metaboli thinks
Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway is the third entry in the Brothers in Arms series of video games which follows the men of the 101st Airborne Division (502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment). This game once again puts you in the role of Staff Sergeant Matt Baker during Operation Market Garden in the later stages of World War II. This operation in enemy territory was an extremely daring and hasty plan devised by the commander of the 21st Army Group, Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery, also know as Monty, the famous Anglo-Irish British Army officer. While the offensive was strategically bold, it was sadly poorly planned, and ended in the entire destruction of the British 1st Airborne Division at Arnhem. (Understand why I used the highway to heaven reference now, don't you?)
But I digress. Back to the game: The semi-fictional Staff Sergeant Matt Baker (who you'll be playing) is a squad leader in the 101st Airbone Division's elite Reconnaissance Platoon. He, and characters from the previous game are reassigned to the unit before the drop into Holland. The game follows the 101st's assault and securing of Eindhoven, and the subsequent defense of the surrounding area from German counterattacks, which in turn leads to the countless deaths in Sgt. Baker's squad. You will experience the best and the worst of war, in a very graphic, detailed, and moving way.
You will be happy to discover the many new features included in this game, including a selection of new specialized units (bazooka and machine gun teams). When a command is issued, the player model uses hand signals to issue the command to his squad, similar to its predecessors. One of the best (if not the best) new features of Brothers in Arms - Hell's Highway is the "action cam". Whenever you manage to get a headshot, or a good grenade kill or order a particularly explosive bazooka blast, the camera will sometimes zoom in on the action and go into slow-motion. Gorey results, I tell you, as you avenge your brother's deaths, and blast the Nazis back to the stone age!
Have fun, but remember, war... what is it good for?
