Driving the "Hell's Highway" first impressions

I have to admit I played too little of the first Brothers in Arms. But its sequel, Brothers in Arms Hell's Highway is giving my a good ride so far. Im playing it on my PC.
The only bad thing about playing a sequel so cinematic like this one is that I dont get shit about what the hell is going on with the characters and the story that was on the first BIA... from time to time I get a cinematic with screens from the original game, or something that happened on the original game, also with some character conflict, etc, etc... but who knows, I dont know what the fuck are they talking about, I only know that my objective is to kill nazis, and thats allways a good thing.

The BIAHH has a good idea behind, like the first one, not beign the simple WWII shooter it gives you a shooter with some tactical goodies, very nice tactics overall make it quite addictive.
If you dont understad the tactic thing that Iam talking about lets go over it:
You can shoot nazis, of course, but if you try to do it on your own, behind cover is game over.
You are in charge of sometimes up to two squads, one can be a assault squad with firepower to match infantry, the other one can be a bazooka squad or a machine gun placement. So lets suposse you have a situation, the nazis are over a field of cows, you can kill the cows and place the squad with the machine gun behind cover, command them to keep the nazis pinned down and then with the help of your tactical map and your assault team: flank them.
That´s overall the main idea of BIAHH, you have to use your brains, is a FPS with elements drawn from RPG´s like Company of Heroes.

About Veltone of us since 11:54 PM on 05.31.2007

Iam a gammer from the harsh uruguayan jungle (we dont even have a jungle down here, too cold, go and do some wikipedia of Uruguay). I used to do a podcast in spanish about videogames at Radio LevelUp but I dont do it anymore... anyway those guys are there still making it so you can give it a try if you understand spanish
And i can say "�aca �aca �aca" and i know how to pronoaunce it well since im a spanish speaker, so Im a superior race.
A couple of idiots may find funny that I dont have good english grammar, but again, they are probably idiots since they only speak/write one language...

Most of my time in the internet is because of games. I love videogames so much that i sleep with my girlfriend and my ds, at the same time... i call that a "threesome" and my humor doesnt get anything better than that.
Mostly im a PC gamer, i was going to buy a 360 but faulty crappy hardware told me not to since if it goes RRoD here I would have lost my money, and as a man Im entitled to the sweat of my brow. I want to fuck the Wii and I believe the PS3 is going to be the first console in space.

In the "real" life (come on, internet now is part of our lives anyway...), I study medicine (takes a lot of time and I cant spend enough of my time playing videogames). Is not what you would call a marriage made in heaven, if I wanted to game more I should have sutdy something related to pc�s, but I grown surrounded by computers and stuff so I chose the bio stuff instead. Anyway, little time to play video games if you dont want my biographical shit.

And the main reasson I play games for the story behind them. I love well written stories like Half Life series, of course Portal (kind of a Valve fan). Other great games include World Of Warcraft (not currently playing, actually I was never hardcore, but I enjoyed the experience a lot), and of course the classics like System Shock 2. Other great titles had stuck with me over the years, classics adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and Grim Fandango.

So, best game experiences:
Half Life 2 (and the original Half Life of course).
System Shock 2
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis
Monkey Island
