Ok, seeing as I cannot beat Eye of the Storm - everyone dies and so the mission can't meet it's objectives. If I could only get out in front of the main body to make a difference before they all get killed.
Anyway, that's not this thread.
I remember playing this a long time ago but can't recall what is different about this tweaked version. I do play alot of missions Overview
Fine. A good picture with border and good description of what lays ahead.
I'd prefer the version number on the first page but at least it has one Intro
Oh this is a great intro, a nice mixture of story telling with a good dose of humour thrown in.
The officer falling out of the truck was hilarious - I loved the "action" music that proceeded it.
Also, the "Dirty Dozen" style objectives rhyme is worth a mention.Briefing
Everything you could possibly need to know. Plenty of details.
No typo's, no problems.
No gear selection either Mission
Just after the drop my men got snarled up in the walls of a garden and it took a while for the dumb AI to figure their way out of it.
Made my way across to the barracks and lined the hills and the fenceline with them.
There was a rogue US soldier wandering around by here.
Me and "my boys" gunned down anything living that attempted to leave the base.
After the other squads reported in that they had completed their objectives. Joined them in the run to the RV point.
Took a few stray shots from a hidden machine gunner and some enemy forces in Bruneval.
Boats came on cue. Loaded my squad into the one on the far left of the RV area.
I watched the other squads load into the other boats before loading myself.
Got a message "You survived..... did we succeed?" which gave me an uneasy feeling.
Then A black screen that says "please wait for the mission to complete", which tried my patience for a while.
When the game screen comes back into view I can hear gunfire for a few seconds and then the mission ends. Yay!!!
Kills 9. Completed in 34 mins. Score 8850 and four white ball thingys.Outro
I have to say I'm not a fan of the outro but again, there is nothing wrong with it.Summary
A good, well made mission that covers a considerable area of Kolgujev.
I would prefer a little more action on the route to the RV but that could just be me
No problems encountered although the AI snarl up at the beginning annoyed me but it didn't affect the mission at all.
