Fans of first person shooters are going to be in for a treat this Monday when the sequel to Brothers In Arms: Hour of Heroes, Brothers in Arms 2: Global Front launches. Last month we took a trip to the Gameloft offices to get an early look at the game:

The game features six different play environments — the Pacific, North Africa, Italy, Normandy, Germany, and Ardennes — across 16 levels, each of which offers 25-30 minutes of playtime (6+ hours total, estimated), basically double that of the iPhone original. While much of the combat is carried out running, dodging, and ducking through the various environs on foot, airplanes, motorcycles, and tanks are also thrown into the mix.

Gameloft just released a pretty cool trailer that shows quite a bit of gameplay:

NOVA is going to be a tough act to follow, but so far Brothers in Arms 2 looks very promising. We'll have a full review following the release of the game.

    The environments seem to be as organic feeling as the 1st BOA... much more than NOVA... but the graphics are nowhere near NOVA's...

    my usual question : How is it going to perform on iPhone 3G?

    • jw

      it will play with a framerate of 20 fps in stage 1...25 fps in stage 2, with more enemies only 10 fps........ jk, but who really knows?

      Wait until it's released and read impressions from other 3g-users. But i guess it will perform like any other Gameloft-Game like MCS,Nova etc.

    I don't like the glossy lighting. It's like a Need for Speed game (one of the arcade racing versions) I'll live with it though. I've only see video thusfar of the extreme run and gun variety and I haven't seem the AI show any signs of life. However, the video in the podcast showed someone attaching a rifle grenade to the end of an M1 Garland. At that point, I was hold. This is my comfort level. I can't stand modern warfare games. WWII games are where it's at, especially online. Modern warfare games have too much scope-kill spamming. Take that damn scope off and play like a man. Iron sights are one thing, but when every gun is fitted with an overpowered scope, it takes out all the fun. Overpowdered scopes are never an issue with WWII games and that's why I love them.

    Sweet! It looks great! It's going to own NOVA. I never really was a fan of NOVA for some reason.... Maybe the reason that the aliens are kinda lame, the multi sucked. I know for sure that this is going to be a favorite for everyone!

    • rajo

      Exactly, I don't know what's the buzz about NOVA, the game mechanics are stale (to make door open, you have to shoot all enemies first? wtf), controls are not nearly as smooth as in Sandstorm... I dunno

    • smokin okin okin

      agreed, NOVA's a good game and all, but I feel that sandstorm surpassed it so much, especially in multiplayer, but I think NOVA had much better graphics and much smoother gameplay, but I also feel that this game will beat both of them, after all gameloft games aren't judged by what looks better, it's just simply a known fact that the newer game will be the better game

      • Lilbitbrit

        I completely agree^

    Do you think it is possible - related to the gpu of an iphone - the graphics could be more beautiful/detailed in future FPS? Can an IPhone 3Gs handle more?

    Awesome if multiplayer is as good as Eliminate. I'm crossing my fingers for 3G online play instead of only wifi. 3v3 sounds nice

    It looks cool but it is not a first person shooter, it is a third person shooter.

    • http://rpg-fanatics.de Crish

      It looks like its both...when you take cover the camera switches to 3rd person, while the rest of the game is in 1st person perspective. Thats at least what you can see in the video.

      Also, Gamelofts switch of perspective to first person in BiA 2 was one of the first thing reported on TA.

    The gameplay in this already looks way better than what NOVA had. I am crossing my fingers that this one is good. NOVA felt like DOOM. DOOM was a better game though.

    • Eggbert

      Dude, what's wrong with a game feeling like Doom? Doom's still awesome.

  • godzilla

    hmmm i had the first brothers in arms game. i liked it i guess but it got old...this one looks nice though. the planes and turret shooting in the car. bacause i have to say i absolutly HATED driving in the first game. the controls for it sucked. i hope they made a tilt steer for this one. also the first one didnt have many missions, which im hoping they will add more of in this one. the missions were nice and replayable, but eventually i got bored of the game. but they say they are adding online gameplay. and that sounds good because for me online games never get old. so im looking forward to this. i just hope they dont put it at $10. a little big because the trailer says that it still doesnt have a great amount of missions.

    You guys are such sellouts. When NOVA came around all of you were going crazy like it was jesus himself. Now this lame, yes I said it, LAME trailer comes out, suddenly, none of you really liked NOVA blah blah blah. You people are worst than the blood thirsty maniacs who enjoyed watching gladiators hack each other to death at the Colosseum, in old Rome.

    Gameloft makes junk for the most part. That's the bottom line. Their best game isn't Nova or Sandstorm, it's UNO.

    After Call of Duty: Zombies raised the bar soooo high, I can no longer tolerate gameloft's half a$$ efforts.

    Wake up and re-watch this trailer with your glasses on. Absolutely terrible. I'm all set.

    Really doesn't impress me. Looks like a step back graphically.

    Yes, Call of Duty Zombies is a better game. $10 for a one map FPS with no real campaign and no online multi-player. Then another $5 to buy a second map. Puh-leze. Just because it has the "Call of Duty" name doesn't make it better. Don't get me wrong, Zombies is fun but it's not better than Gameloft's fully featured FPS.

      Thank. You.

    looks great!! I don't know about you guys, but I haven't touched my Nintendo DS in months. My iPhone 3G S is murdering all across the board!! and let's face it...at the $10 this game will be priced, it's a great deal considering it would sell for 3x as much for any portable game system. BRAVO!! PS: I loved NOVA and thought for what it was, an innovated in mobile FPS's. Sure they'll be getting better but NOVA is a stepping stone to future great FPS's.
