    please comment below which code you used to let others check for availability. thx

  2. Played it.

    Looks pretty……….. and that’s about it.
    The sound is misleading, the maps are awfully empty, feedback on objectives is non existent, tanks get stuck on slightly curvy terrain…

    also the TIME TO KILL and TIME TO DIE is awfully short. 1-2 shots!
    Despite epic settings you can die instantly and NEVER KNOW where or what hit you! no way.
    Same for killing if you actually MANAGE to find an enemy! You just shoot 1-2 times and he falls over……….. SKILL!!!!!!

    Honestly this game is just bad. Its Battlefield 3 levels of bad.
    “Oh but its a b-” -no! Dont get me started. Its basic game design and i’m not reviewing possible 2021 versions here.

    Dying in 1 second to run 10 minutes aimlessly around with no real team binding objectives……. thats not fun.

    Wannt WW2 fun?
    World of Tanks… Company of Heroes 2… – freaking ARMY MEN on PS1 ……. anything!

    Its just pointless. Absolutely pointless. Oh and since every class is the same aka : you can only aim down sights…
    Some got a gimmic like the medic can be shot while trying to save someone which respawns anyway before you reach him
    then there is the MG guy who can put up an MG… and make himself to an static target to be shot
    … you can go tank crew but only driver and gunner matter. Honestly the commander can only turn that scope in 4 minutes once and it will fight the turn speed of the turret XD wonderful!

    list goes on and on and on…

    How comes Command and Conquer Renegade had a lot of Teamplay. tanks, infantrie… bases… all that… and got it right in 2003…

    ugh. i am getting to old for this. either that or i should do like all the cool kids and just buy a freaking aimbot<.< pff

  3. I wish you the best in your quest to soothe the excruciating pain and sadness the game caused you. I hope you can get a refund because HLL never intended to be Call of Duty or BF and likely will never be for you even after the devs fix the expected beta bugs.
