The Good: Great controls, great online multiplayer, extra arcade mode is fun
The Bad: Campaign is about as boring and short as WWII games can get, underwhelming graphics, enough with the WWII EA!
I played the PSP version several months ago (check out my review for that version) and I was really let down. The game was extremely tough even on the easier difficulties, and the campaign was short and boring. All those things are still in the Wii version but it’s more forgivable thanks to the on-rails arcade mode thrown in, the great Wii controls, and the online multiplayer. While WWII games have been done to death this game is no exception.
EA struggled to piece together a stupid story that we’ve heard millions of times over and the campaign levels feel like games of the past and nothing like the newer games. After about 4-6 hours blowing through the campaign you can play the same levels in an arcade mode, which makes things easier, and go online. While all this is great and all it doesn’t really improve on the genre and is good for a rental or something but nothing more.
