Gearbox Software’s critically acclaimed WWII shooter series started with Road to Hill 30, and continues with Earned in Blood. This chapter follows Corporal Joe Hartsock, whose story intertwines with the events of the first game, giving a new perspective on the events of June 6th 1944 and the days that followed.
Brothers in Arms Earned in Blood takes the story-driven tactical action from the first game and expands it with bigger environments, deeper enemy AI, and a brand new campaign. Gritty, authentic and innovative, the game offers the visceral, emotionally charged experience of infantry combat in the Normandy invasion; the battle that changed history.

Great Game in my favorite series - I am a devoted fan of the BIA games, i think they have the best story of any videogame ive played, the combat is excellent, and it really is set apart from your average call of duty-esque game, even though i enjoy those as well. The graphics are dated, but it came out on the original xbox and ps2 so you have to take that as it is.
it wont load :( - the stupid app would not download i hav waited 24 hrs and it still says waiting and has no bar can u please tell me how this can be fixed

suprisingly fun - despite the fact that ww2 is really done to death at this point, i found this game to be really fun! i'm an old school gamer so graphics really arent a problem for me. the game is dated after all, but it's actually suprisingly good for it's age. its a great fps, but it's an fps for the patient. if your the type who likes "God mode" walk away, but if you're the kind of guy who turns off all the add ons and sets the game to the highest difficulty, or who gets a "realism" mod for your favorite fps, you'll like this game. runs fine on a 2012 macbook pro on maximim settings, no problems no crashes. no multiplayer really but a very long campaign that's fun to replay. If your looking for a game that will steal 30 or so hours of your life, and you like explosions and bullets flying around, and outsmarting enemies, this could be the game for you!
Good, but it originally came out in 2005 - The Brothers in Arms games are fun and probably the most realistic portrayal of WWII infantry combat. but something to keep in mind is that this game was originally released in early 2005. One of the platforms it was written for was the original XBox. You should adjust your expectations of production quality accordingly. I think that this semi-sequel is more challenging and a bit more fun than the original, but the two games are very similar. If you liked Road to Hill 30, you'll like Earned in Blood. If you didn't like Road to Hill 30, you probably won't like Earned in Blood either.
BIA - I am reading a lot of the reviews below, figured I should correct most of them. First, this game didn't come out in 2010, both RTH30 and EiB were released in 2005 and are based up Unreal Engine 2, before the shift to HD and UR3. So yes, this game is somewhat dated. Second, this is an extremely buggy ported version of this game. I played both RTH30 and EiB on Xbox and PC, and I must say they were much better on those platforms. This Mac version is extremely buggy: squad AI and enemy AI is all over the place, lots of glitches. I would recommend buying the phsyical media and running it through bootcamp to play on windows. But, overall, it is still a great game and I highly recommend it.
Brithers in Arms Earned in Blood - This is a pretty good game except you can play it and get quite far into the game especially in the skirmish level, but if you get killed which happens quite frequently, it goes back to an earlier level and ypu have to battle all the way through to where you left off. There should be some way to save the game at different levels, and if you do get killed, you don't have to go all the way back. It does lose some appeal when you have to fight the same battles over and over. A way to save the game at your discretion would be an important thing to have. Otherwise it is a great game.
How Can I Tell? - How can I tell how I like the game? It freezes at the same spot, 5 tries, in the first Chapter, shooting at the "German Scarecrow". I've gone to the Support Site and BIA: Earned in Blood isn't even listed. How can I tell?
