Hour of Victory renders

Hour of Victory renders

Midway released these great renders/artworks from Hour of Victory, to be released exclusively on the Xbox 360. Inside you'll also find the boxart and the first images from the game, which we added to the database a couple of weeks ago but forgot to write about.

This makes me appriciate the level of time, and quality that is going into Brothers In Arms. MOH, COD, and this, are all rushed run and guns. Brothers in arms is the MGS and Halo of WW2 shooters.

I have played this game before. It was called Call of Duty 2.

Scarface: Nice to see someone appreciate BIA as much as I do. It's the true WWII FPS shooter.

Good for you. We are a rare breed it seems. COD 2 was pretty good, awesome in fact. I've seen gameplay of this and would say it's more like COD 3. All these games are very much arcadey no brainers, unlike BIA, which isn't so much a hardcore tactical game, but you at least have to stop and think before acting.

This is the most unnecessary game on 360 to date IMO. Why was it made?

I wish this game would be very good but I'm afraid it will be another clone of Medal of
honor with average graphics.

Isn't this game playable via three different view points or whatever? Spy, Rush and gun and sniper? Maybe it's another one.

Well, 1 thing is for sure, there's no shortage of WWII FPS games on the Xbox 360 this year.. Call of Duty 2 & 3, Medal of Honor: Airborne, Brother in Arms, and now this Hour of Victory aswell.. Good for the fans..

Hopefully we'll see some better LIVE features/lobby system. coming soon in these games. Probably not this one though, it will probably suck like COD2 and COD3.

Why is it that a game like GOW can get such good ratings, and the host can choose the map you play on in multiplayer?

I need this like I need rectal cancer...

Ill pass on this just like I passed call fo duty 3, the only WW shooter that looks promising is brothers in arms 3.
Commented on 2007-02-21 02:00:11
OMG, NEW FPS ON 360?!?!? Just what I was looking for!!
Commented on 2007-02-21 09:17:11
It better be more like COD than MOH to interest me a bit.

Oh yeah. BIA is going to be a must once it's released. I am still waiting on IGN's "extended trailer" from back around E3. They posted the short video inside that shop but never posted the promised extended trailer. I was waiting anxiously. BIA grabbed me from the very first video that was shown. Never played the other two, but this one looks amazing.

Man another WOII game... this is getting repetitive. Why can't they just think of a completely new storyline, or in this case a imaginary war? Why alway's WOII? I mean something like Halo or Killzone, or at least an ''what if'' twist like what if the cold war hade become a real war?
Commented on 2007-02-21 22:55:31
not 2 sure about this one
but brothers in arms 3 its my next ww2 game am getting

Not to rain on everybodys trolling parade, but this game runs on the Unreal Engine 3.0, and also has real-time destructible environments.

Something not any other WWII game has done.

CoD2 was a piece of shit with its pre-rendered everything. The animations were stiff, and half the time the people died and then hit the floor so fast..(very fake)...CoD3 was far better technology wise, but this will no doubt be better than that.

BIA: HH however, will support all of this stuff and more, plus have better gameplay, physics, AI and graphics.

Medal of Honor will probably be worse than CoD2, in terms of pre-rendered crap. EA will surely destroy another franchise on this next gen platform.

After COD and it's expansion on the PC (won't even speak of the console abominations), the series went down.

I mean, it was THE ww2 game to beat (and before that, Medal of Honor), and it looks like an easy task now.
Just goes to show.

WW2 won't have anything more to offer eventually.
I hope they turn to the Mexican War, or something that hasn't been exploited yet, cause this shit is old.
