Haven't heard much talk about this game here. Is anyone playing this? If you prefer more realism similar to Operation Flashpoint and aren't completely sick of WWII shooters, this is the game for you. Here's some of the features that make it different:

1. No crosshairs! You need to aim all weapons using the gunsights themselves

2. No Friend or Foe recognition. You need to ID your targets visually before shooting.

3. Realistic vehicle operation. You can't own in a vehicle without teammates helping you operate it.

4. Objective driven maps. No more random cap and hold. You need to achieve specific cap points and the enemy knows it!

5. Player class limits per map. You can't have 10 snipers!

I am not talking about Ostfront, not the UT mod. (2 slightly different things). The retail game based on the original MOD is out on steam now.

Yeah I'm playing this (or I will be more so once I get my new rig sorted, it chugs a bit on the old one). It's a great game, very challenging. Too hard for kids -- which is a good thing!
