    I didn't know we had so many gamers on this forum!

    I bought this game on launch day, I beat it a few weeks ago! :p I enjoyed it, I found the "action cam" was insanely stupid especially for a game that touts to be a realistic war experience that tells the stories of these soldiers in a respectful manner. The engine problems are a disaster, makes you wonder what these guys were doing all this time after delaying the game for over 2 years! The A.I. was a bit dumb as well.

    That being said, Gearbox put all their money into this game and it didn't sell, they had lay offs in the past after releasing the game. They are working on a new Brothers in Arms game apparently and possibly a game called World War II Hero, War Hero, and Modern War Hero or something like that. All this provided the following game sells well enough to keep them afloat of course!

    E6,
    Not sure of your source but despite the general internet rumourvine Randy Pitchford was interviewed on Gametrailers not long ago saying they where quite happy with HH, it had sold 3 million units, perfectly healthly. Gearbox have another game out this year. seems ok to me for such a small company. He also said that they will be returning to BIA and it there are no plans to go to a modern setting.

    Yep the AI seemed a little less effective than BIA1/2 in attack but the germans did pull back well once flanked, which BIA often didnt.

    You can tuirn off the kill cam in the settings if you dont like it.

    Really? I don't recall it ever appearing on the NPD lists or anything, perhaps most of the sales came digitally? I know at one point Steam was selling all 3 BiA games bundled for $20 at one point.

    I found out how to turn it off after finishing the game. :(

    Edit: Those other games would be seperate,

    I've seen it for £4.99 in Morrisons, but wasn't sure if it worked on Vista or not.

    Tescos in their undercutting fashion, are doing it for £4.96, alas they have sold out :(

    I don't think my local Morrisons is bigger enough to stock games, so it looks like Play if I want it
