I dont think that they will fix it . actually i think they did that on perpose .
1) to make the game harder & more realstic .. which means that not all of your shots hits the target accuratly usually .
2) to encourage you to use the flanking tactics & your sqauds more often . if hitting become accurate i believe that i will finish a whole mission without much use of my fire/assualt teams

either ways that still dont justify using this way of aiming because the player should have the final dissicion on how to play the game & how to use whats under his command .

grenades are even lamer . you only got a few & could easily lose them for nothing due to the poor aiming .

I broke down and bought this one, probably out of bordom. I have to say Im impressed. Finally some new gaming concepts and while they do not run too deep, they are new. Aiming a gun now actually feels like your aiming a gun. None of that crappy random box that gets bigger the more you move. So if your into FPS like UT2004 you might not be so into this one but if your into WW2 and COD felt like, well UT2004 a little too much, you might like this one. HD2 fans might also liek this one.


It might not be a blockbuster hit that every one likes but I have a feeling that those who do like will really really like it. Thats my review.

I abosolutely love this game. I think the chance of hiting a foe is very close to what would be if you fight for real. The realism is staggering. Gearbox have done a great job. All of you who complain about aiming I would advise to forget their habits built in playing all other FPSs and you will discover the beauty of BIA. Easily the best WWII game I've played. COD is my second favorite already. BIA is revolutionary in gameplay and graphics is wonderful. It's not Doom3 and I like it like that. It is very authentic looking. I like old movie cheat alot but I'm abit annoyed that I have to activate it every time new level is loaded.

It's not a real cheat actually. It desaturates the visuals so it looks very authentic. Have to complete the game in easy to unlock it. But unfortunately I have to activate it every time the game loads level. And cutscenes are also not affected and continue to be lush colored) But all of that does not deminish the BIA strengths.

Even at short distances the shots tend to miss ridiculously wether its a M1 rifle , tommy gun or BAR . the only weapon that shots accuratly is the sniper rifle .. thank god for that

i dont hate the game , but just hate this idea .. if i overlook it & the performance/graphics issues .. the game is so great & i'm really enjoying it .

i agree. i like that game, and i want to like it more, but i dont like the aiming. it seems like that was made to be like that to enhance the suspense. "am i gonna hit him or not?" I hate that alot, cause as a player, i know i am a good shot, and i am supposed th be the main focus of the game. the AI isnt supposed to be better than me.

It looks like it could be a good game buts its spoiled byt crappy performance, (barely manages 22fps at 1280*960 which I think is pretty shocking with no AA) and the sound is really really BAD! Practically no surround sound at all which totally ruins it.
