Battalion 1944 is a Steam Early Access title from the developers over at Bulkhead Interactive but is in actual fact being published by Square Enix of all companies. In this game, it does what Call of Duty tried to do and take things back to classic boots on the ground gameplay in good, old fashioned first-person shooter action during World War II. Designed to capture the core of classic and competitive shooters, Battalion 1944 is the in between of ‘classic’ and ‘modern’ shooters, while remaining up to date and appropriate for the year that we’re currently in.
With classic 5v5 teams in Battalion 1944 you’re set to control and intercept objectives, decimate your opponents, and not have to worry about some random tank eventually showing up to ruin your fun as its designed to be all-infantry all of the time. Each weapon is almost as if it’s stripped directly from 1944 and wouldn’t look out of place in some of the best war-time AAA releases. Both the environments and the maps are there to be enjoyed but considering how frantic the game can get after a short while. You probably shouldn’t exactly stop to try and sniff the roses when there’s a sniper with a Kar98 in-hand.
In a world currently ravaged by war, there’s no reason we can’t enjoy a couple of skirmishes here and there. Skirmishes help to keep everyone on their toes, at least for the time being. Unfortunately, for those that don’t enjoy being shot at Battalion 1944 isn’t exactly going to be the game for you. For players that won’t a great new excuse to pick up a decent FPS game that’s going to progressively improve over time thanks to the committed development team behind this title.
As this game is an Early Access title it isn’t free of issues that plague the players. This is evident in the reviews of the game which have gone from great to bad very quickly, although things change quickly with EA games. Here are some of the most prominent issues with the game that people are talking about online in order of severity:
With over 5000 reviews as of March, Battalion 1944 has a mixed review score. The negative and positive reviews share many similar themes. Many people comment that the game is a great idea and has the potential to be something special, although many feel that the developers are to slow in reacting to the issues raised by the community. This is despite many reviewers acknowledging that the developers are now active on social media.
The general advice from the Steam community is to wait for the game to release properly, as many suggest that it just isn’t worth buying in its current state. Due to it’s slow development and boredom factor it seems the game isn’t worth the money yet.
Teamwork orientated games are gaining in popularity recently and there seems to be plenty of titles like Battalion 1944 to choose from. Here are some of our picks:
A lot of people say that Call of Duty is a big inspiration to Battalion 1944. This is evident in the atmosphere within the game, the style of graphics and also the weaponry.
