Brothers In Arms 2: Global Front Free+ Review
Brothers in Arms 2: Global Front Free+ is a pretty intriguing app for the iPad and other Apple devices. I saw this app while exploring the App Store searching for a great war game. There are some great apps that fit that category, but they usually cost something. The ones that do not cost anything aren't the greatest war time game. I stumbled over this and thought it looked pretty good, so I downloaded it.
Download and Size: If you are downloading this on your iPhone or iPod, the size is only 272 MB. That is not big at all, so the downloading time shouldn't take that long at all. If you are going to download it for your iPad, it is the same size, 272 MB, so there is nothing to worry about.
The Graphics: Since this game is free and a pretty small download size, I wasn't sure how great the graphics would be. After firing up the game and getting right into it, I realized how amazing it is. The graphics look awesome, in my mind. What I like about it even more, when playing on the iPad, is that you feel like it's right in front of you when you look at it. It is a sight to see. There aren't any glitches at all. I liked that in itself.
The Gameplay: This gameplay also shocked me. When playing on the iPad, and maybe on the iPhone and iPod, it feels like you are right in the game. To move left from right, you move the device back and forth. Now, I think you don't have to have that feature on, but I turned it on and I recommend that you do too because it makes it even better. One thing that you do need to work on is the buttons on the screen. While you move around, you tend to bump some of the buttons on the screens. Those buttons cause you to shoot, which diminishes your ammunition. You have to get use to it. One thing I did have trouble on is how to crouch down. There is one part where you have to crouch down so your opponent doesn't see you. I couldn't figure it out and was getting shot at a couple of times. Just play around and you will figure it out. Walking gets pretty sticky after awhile as your hand gets cramped while using the "virtual" control stick on the screen. I went through a couple of levels before I died, but I enjoyed it the entire time. It is addicting and a blast.
Grab it or Stab it: This game is a grab it for sure! There are a couple of key reasons why! First, the app is free, so you don't have to pay one penny. Second, you can act like you are actually in the game and move around to look where you want. Yes, you may look like a goof doing so, but people may get a few laughs about it and it makes the game so much more enjoyable. Lastly, the graphics are sweet, so it doesn't look like it's cheesy at all. Grab this game as you surely won't be disappointed!
