Brothers in Arms: Earned in Blood review

The PS2 is missing all the guts and the glory


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


  • 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 ‘Red’ Hartsock in a story that’s part retelling of Road To Hill 30’s events (from Red’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.
