Hi here's my review!Overview
Good picture, text is right. Good job here.Intro
A classic Intro featuring an infantry battle. Very interesting is the use of a second, smaller font and custom voiceovers.
This is something you don't see too often.Briefing
Very little information presented, but one immediately suspects that the mission will develop further.
Weapons selection is present, and I like to play with the Resistance-added rifles, they are very underrepresented in the game.Mission
The long jeep ride is shortened by music and cleverly placed eyecandy (soldiers along the road). Nice battle at St. Marie.... I managed to shoot from a house into the wood and lob grenades at the russians
However, some of them got trough and it ended up in house-to-house-fighting. I received a gunshot when attemting to take a look on top of the outpost, so it was a nice challenge to to that too.
Advanced on foot to Chapoi and catched some Reds attacking from the flank. Shot two of them dead at 500 m (looks like the FN FAL has a greater range than the M16) but spent all my ammo in this firefight. So I collected another rifle from St.Marie. When I went back I did not manage to reach Chapoi in time before the mission ended.Known Bugs
The radio message telling the player to mop up the outpost is a bit misleading. The text displayed talks of the outpost being west of St.Marie, while the recording speaks of East. But the marker clears this up. So it is just a minor complaint.Conclusion
A classic mission featuring the take/defend style. But is is nicely done and really worth playing.
