    Looks interesting. I'm kind of on the fence. I've been watch a lot of Youtube videos on people playing. It seems a little slow but the tank battles look fun. Is the game out or still in early access? Still shows "Coming Soon" on the Steam page.

    Purchased it along with some friends.. The game is amazing.

    It's the right blend of some realistic stuff like in ARMA, but still accessible. I would not call the game slow, unless you need instant gratification like CoD.

    Excellent, I will probably pick this up then. Been wanted to play a WW2 game on a modern engine for so long.

    It’s a bigger better game. It’s more like ARMA but a bit more accessible.

    The graphics and sound design blow every other WW2 game out of the water.

    The sound is awesome, though I've got a couple nits to pick with it. For example, the Bf-109 doesn't have it's distinctive whistle when it flies by. Not a big deal, but it makes the 109 sound too similar to the Spit. Visually it's pretty cool. I especially like the DoF on the rifles when scoped. The binos are really well done too. I'm not sure why, but they really gave me the effect of looking through two "scopes" that combined into one picture. Moreso than any game I've ever played before.

    There's a few problems with it. IFF is horrible. I swear that I've been killed by teammates more than by the enemy, but, of course, there's no way to know that. You get no feedback whatsoever when you die. It would be cool if they just told you, "Killed by enemy fire" or "Killed by friendly fire", but they don't. Wounding sucks too. Apparently, if you get shot anywhere, you are immediately, fully incapacitated. You can't even drag yourself out of harm's way, ever.

    It reminds me a WWII Online/Battleground Europe in gameplay, which I consider a pretty good thing. You have to work with your section, or you have no clue where the enemy is. I've been in some great ones, and in some horrible one - nobody communicates. For some reason, people role-play in this game. It's entertaining. The local voice chat is great. Last night I was playing and bunch of people got shot as we were moving up through the woods. Suddenly, I heard a bunch of people calling out, "Medic" with varying degrees of drama. ;)

    I prefer the 1 hit kills for the rifles, and you aren't technically killed just knocked out to where a medic can revive you. If you didn't have the 1 hit kills the game wouldn't capture the tension that it currently does and it really demonstrates how powerful a properly positioned machine gun squad can be in locking down a flank.

    Yes, friendly fire is an issue, but you quickly learn the colors even from great distance and keeping the map in mind where your team mates are helps.

    Actually, P.S. (post script) means it's something added after the "script" or signature. So it would be more like....

    "Mom

    P.S. I forgot to mention that this is a post script."

    I have an overclocked 5820k and a 1080Ti. The game is running great @ 1440p with 'high' settings.

    The explosions in this game look incredible. The visual and audio of a dive bomber coming in and seeing the shockwave from a bomb drop is incredible, and getting your cover blasted with a 40mm cannon while entertaining really sucks.

    Tried it out but ultimately refunded it, the gameplay was just too slow for me - I think ARMA 3 is still the best military sim game out there.

    IMO ARMA is slower. You get in conflict pretty fast in this game if you want it.

    Ultimately if played right some folks on some flanks won’t have as much contact, but I just don’t agree that this is a slow game unless you’re used to more arcade style shooters.

    I am going to have to give this a try. Some games these days completely slip under the radar.
