Brothers in Arms: Earned in Blood review

The PS2 is missing all the guts and the glory

Instead, the gameplay makes you focus on the ‘four Fs’ of infantry combat. These are, in sequence: 1) Finding the enemy, 2) Fixing them in their positions with suppressive fire, 3) Flanking them while they’re pinned and 4) Finishing them off. Remember: F.

To achieve all this you have to command separate units – a fire team to suppress the enemy and an assault team to out-flank and kill the enemy. Issuing orders is as simple as selecting the relevant team then positioning a cursor and pressing either the left trigger to get your men to move to that position, or the right trigger to order them to fire at that position.
