Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

What do these ratings mean?

Weekend. Check. Xbox 360. Check. Comfy seat for your butt.  Checkaroo. Brothers in Arms: Hells Highway. Hoorah! Now suit up soldier and give those Krauts a good kick in the pants. It's been three years since Ubisoft released a Brothers in Arms game(aside from BIA:DS and BIA:Doubletime). This game, is more geared for the Veterans of this series, but it does a good job of keeping you kept up on what has happened so far. All the same characters are here, with a few new recruits here and there. The single player, is about medium length if you have played one of these games before, except now you don't have to do all the flanking crap, because if you can see the part of the Kraut, you can hit the Kraut. I found this very useful as I don't like to flank. The story is very nice and emotional at the end of the game, as certain events happen. Without going into too much detail the following people are part of it, Hartstock, Corrion, a new recruit nicknamed Franky "Beans" and a revisit to what Baker's hasn't been telling the whole truth on.  The game has little scenes in which you should pop of a head shot at a long distance, or get a "good" grenade kill, where they will go into slow-mo and zoom in on the action. At first they look cool, but as the game goes on, the scenes where you pop off a head shot get boring, and the grenade kills will eventually get boring as well. The game is violent and chaotic, with heads being blown to pieces like a watermelon, and limbs being knocked off left and right. The games visuals look good, with a few exceptions such as 2D flowers, but when your being shot at left and right you don't get the chance to notice these things. Hells Highway goes down through Hell and survives, even though Baker, his squad, and friends, witness the the Nazi's last great victory they still make out in good condition.
