The AI doesn't shoot death rays of micrometer precision as one review mentions. You have to be really bad at using cover to get hit with the first shot from a distance. Firefights between infantry, tanks and AT guns are protracted and fun. Unless a MG42 joins the party (boy was the MG42 THAT great?)
. During this morning replay the AI Russians came to the edge of my position and started tossing grenades at my trenches. Great fun.
I have to agree with the reviewers that the single player campaign is in not-so-good shape. Just to put it mildly.
Sure. Be advised the scenario is a little silly thing without briefing, cutscenes or anything else. If you are familiar with the scenario editor, feel free to delete out the Russian T34s for some infantry-only fun.
Also, the fortifications in what I call "the main line of resistance" are non-existant (just a couple of packs and MG42s, put there for effect). this shouldn't be an issue if you stay in the outpost (remember your mission!).
I have a companion website and I will make it available for download there.
These trenches with frontal cover work like a charm but be careful to maintain mutual support. As soon as one of the trenches is neutralized you are liable for a frontal close assault (i.e. one trench overwatches the dead space in front of the other trench: if one trench falls, the other trench will have a huge and dangerous dead space just in front).
As for the portable ATs, I could only see the "shrecks" and not the "fausts". Not completely sure about if they are there.
Anyone else get the disc for this? I installed it and had a dabble, then patched up to 1.02 - and now it asks me for some "unlock code" because I "don't have a licence". Muffed up bloody DRM. Sussin', fussin', mutter, mutter
