The game is set in world war 2, and is based on the 101st legion that battled in Normandy. The story is told from the perspective of two soldiers, Matt baker and Joe Hartsock. The game takes you through the actual battlefields of the war in the form of a diary, when each day is a new level. It reflects the heart ache soldiers felt seeing their fellow company men dying, and how they had to keep on fighting regardless of how much anguish they felt.

In terms of gameplay i would definately say this is challenging as there are no health pickups along the way. The graphics are very realistic but at some points it feels as if the screen is too dark even if you set the screen on its brightest setting. With careful thought to how to defeat the germans in the battlefield, the game is not very challenging at times. One thing that does however annoy me is when your hit by a shell or near an explosion, the character appears dazed and all you can see is the sky and hear a loud high pitched tone. i understand they are only doing this to make the game realistic, but it did get annoying when you were trying to aim at soldiers. The ability to control other soldiers in your squad is also a lot of fun however if you have more than one person, you cant send them in different directions or to stand at different posts, they always move together.

Overall the game is very compelling but i would only reccomend it to people who like wargames, and they may find it a lot easier than other similar titles. Personally i enjoyed it as i am not very good at wartime games so i felt great when i completed it.
