Brothers in Arms: Earned in Blood review

The PS2 is missing all the guts and the glory

Pros

  • The emphasis on team tactics
  • Killing Krauts
  • A great WWII era presentation

Cons

  • The maligned PS2 version
  • Online play also sucks
  • Rock stupid squad AI

A quickfire sequel to Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30, Earned in Blood has been developed with feedback from the playing community in mind - hence the improved AI (evident both in the enemy and your own squadmates), enhanced multiplayer modes and the increase in urban combat.

You play as Sgt Joe %26lsquo;Red%26rsquo; Hartsock in a story that%26rsquo;s part retelling of Road To Hill 30%26rsquo;s events (from Red%26rsquo;s perspective) but mostly an entirely new story that takes place on D-Day and the days beyond as the 101st Airborne division fight for the liberation of Normandy.
