Edit: Yes, the demo got removed from marketplace, just so you guys know.

Well the demo for the game is up on marketplace and it is 937.62 MB big.

I for one really want to buy a WW2 game that is GREAT, so it is up to Medal of Honor Airborne and Brothers in Arms Hells Highway for me, either one of them or both.

I like the fact Hells Highway have cover system like Rainbow Six Vegas and dynamic destructions and good graphics so I am leaning torwards that one.

And Airborne is just great looking with sprint :D

So I might get both and I might not.

I am not a fan of WW2 games but sometimes I have an urge to get one. I am a sci-fi fanatic but I don't want o be gathered with high-tech all the time

MAss Effect, Haze, Halo, Too Human - Sci-fi covered
COD4 - Modern covered
Fable 2 - fantasy covered
Hells Highway, Airborne - WW2 covered

I good random genre and setting.

Yeah Sath, my fall wishlist is looking waaay too long. Right now it looks something like PGR4, BiA3, Madden *if* it lives up the hype/balance, TF2 and Halo 3. Mass Effect and Assassin's Creed on the radar but not my typical genre cup of tea. Quake Wars and CoD4 are also strong interests. BFBC looks like a 2008 slide, as does Haze, and UT3 is always a possibility. I will probably go with one from each of my main genres (Sports, Racing, FPS... Madden, PGR4, ...) and pick an FPS or two. Halo 3 is almost a given because it is my best friends true love. I REALLY don't want to have to choose between TF2 and BiA3 and CoD4 & Quake Wars sound awesome. I wish TF2 had came out early 2007 as well as BiA3. In some ways, due to the glut of games, the few I get may end up be in the, "what comapnies do I want to reward" approach so maybe skip Madden until the price drop and support BC and Gearbox. Faaar too many nice FPS!!

The fans have spoken. Concerning the graphics of the Halo 3 Beta: "There's so many little effects and things going on that make this game pretty much 2nd only to Gears at the moment."

Maybe when the offer more info. They seem to have cut out some of the editor features and still no concrete talk about the animation/gameplay. And they don't have my favorite players >:| They need to start releasing some media and talking seriously about the game. I know more about what isn't in it than what is at this point.

Well I played the demo and I LOVE Taggert, great character then its Bull.

But yeah its a WW2 game so I didn't expect much, but as for game in general it was great fun, played it MANY times with different character but obviously Taggert and Bull was my favorites.

Although it was great I am more leaning torwards Airborne and Hell's Highway, both of them is having great features.

Airborne has that every mission you start of with, you have to jump from a plane and go into the battle field...ANYWHERE you want to, great way to make stradegies.

And Hell's Highway, well it has cover system just like RS Vegas and it looks pretty in terms of destructions and details of the bullets.

I think I am gonna buy both of money is in my hands, or I will wait it out.

And the music is well...full out orchestra which is my favorite style so all three games have perfect music that can't go wrong :D.

Which is why I won't even give games like this or Blacksite a fair chance. This is a tough year for FPS developers.. there is tough competition. I'll be getting pretty much all of the games you've mentioned (well, except Bad Company and Haze) so that doesn't leave much time for.. well.. lesser FPS games :)

well that was a waste of time. not only was the d/l added, then removed, then added again to and from the marketplace. but it was downloading painfully slow. after 6 hours i was only at 60% and i wasnt alone in this. no-one seemed to be able to d/l it. so i leave it overnight, wake up, and its done. the longest demo d/l so far, that requred my 360 to cook overnight. and the game is utter crap. graphically its nice, great detail, typical unreal 3 engine stuff really. but the game, URGH. its like i've been transported back to medal of honor on the PSone again. BASIC levels. BASIC gameplay. there is no atmosphere or tension. you run and you gun, thats it. the music is underwhelming often times cheesey as hell. and the default look sensativity is just far too slow (thankfully can be increased)

there have been some bad demo's on the marketplace, but they where all expected. this is a WW2 FPS, its been done so many time i assumed it was now inpossible for a developer to get it wrong. but oh how wrong i was. offically worst WW2 FPS ever. only WW2 game that was worse is the outfit.

OMG what a shit game. Never expected much from this anyway, but it was really below anything i could have imagined. Think Call of Duty with crap sound, the worst AI i've ever seen and yep i'm bored just talking about it.

I think there is a very good reason they took this down from Marketplace. Hour of Victory simply is not finished. Hopefully, this is a sign Midway is pushing back the release date.

I finally just played the demo last night and honestly feel the game has a lot of potential, however, it needs about another nine to twelve months of work to see that potential come to fruition.

Graphically, Hour of Freedom looks nice enough, and in some areas, downright pretty,
but graphics are not what is hurting this game. The gameplay needs a lot of work. The controls are sluggish, so much so, that when you chose to play with the big guy (), it feels like he has a permanent blindspot on his left side. That is a feeling that I have not felt in a FPS in a very long time, definitely not since going widescreen.

Also, the animation is busted and the NPC AI is crap and needs a lot of work.

Finally, the lack of any real sort of cover system is a major turn off. Call of Duty 2 gets away with it only because it shows up to the party before GRAW and R6V and Gears. After those three games, while a cover system is not essential to the FPS genre (ie. why Halo 3 still works so well without one), if you design your levels with lots of cover items littering the field, it makes it hard to run-and-gun with all that crap in the way. And mentioning running and gunning, what's with the run button? The need for one alone makes running and gunning next to impossible. They really should decide how is it they want this game to play (slow and methodical, or fast and lose), and build their game around that concept. As it stands, they have elements of both in the game without fleshing out either (ie. lots of cover, but no cover system . . . or no cover system, but sluggish speed and controls).

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth In many ways it gave me a Last of Us vibe. Well written, strong voice actors and presentation, but the gameplay didn't hit the spot for me. I can still understand why so many people like those games (4 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth the vista by running it in 21:9 aspect ration (even though i have a 16:9 tv), which gives more picture information on both sides and worked well for the horizontal design of the level design. (4 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth Having the close over-the-shoulder camera works great for the seamless-camera style presentation they went for, but it's problematic for spacial awareness in larger fights. It did help a bit to widen. (4 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth The mostly two-dimensional level design and not-as-sharp combat combined with a lot of polished animated auto-platforming and transitions made it good, just not a great gaming experience for me. (4 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth to play it. There's no doubt an enormous amount of work put into all the small details and craftmansship in all assets of the game. Very polished presentation. But coming straight off Sekiro, the game (4 Hours ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @Sdarts: I had a very similar experience. I got it for PC on release. I already had the game on PS4 for a few years, but still shrinkwrapped. So i thought the high quality PC release was a good way.. (4 Hours ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts Anyway, just my stupid opinion and it's not meant to be an attack or hurt anyone, I just had a 8/10 experience. That is all. Though the game does have serious flaws. (23 Hours ago)
