    Brother in Arms for $29

    It's the DVD-ROM version at Gogamer. Shipping is $3 I believe. It's in the 48 hour sale so time is limited.

    So what's the word on this game? The previews were really good as I recall. Is it good? How is the multiplayer?

    Hmm. I wouldn't say it's like Vietcong. For a start you can plan attacks in far greater detail, like sending dudes to a particular point to provide covering fire, etc. I personally prefer Vietcong over BIA. Didn't think much of it (BIA). Too many cutscenes, not enough action. It came off my PC before I finished it. Just my opinion. My brother really enjoys it though, if that's any consolation (we have similar tastes in games)

    I think the main problem with BIA is that I am not compatible with the control assignments that are allowed in the game. Not very versatile.

    I'm playing through the game right now. I think it's really good once you get into it (after the first level or two). Just playing it for like 10-15 min doesn't do it justice.

    The multiplayer on the other hand isn't anything special i.e. it's nowhere near as much fun as CS:S, CoD, BF1942, BFV.

    I'm on the last chapter of BIA. I found this game alot of fun givin the ability to cordinate your fire team, assualt team or tank to flank and wipe out the enemy.
