Review

On the war-torn planets of tomorrow, mankind's greatest battle is about to begin. With its frontier colonies devastated by a growing insurrection, Earth dispatches the elite 8th Armored Infantry (nicknamed "Section 8") to repel the coming onslaught.

The nickname refers to an old United States military regulation where a soldier would be dismissed from service through being mentally unfit for duty. The near-suicidal missions that this division volunteers for brands them as insane by other military units.

Section 8 deploys by 'burning in' from their orbital drop ships tens of thousands of feet above the battlefield, utilizing the most advanced arsenal of military hardware known to man. Their mission: to scout and secure difficult objectives and smash enemy defenses in lightning-quick assaults.

An intense first-person shooter, Section 8 allows players to dynamically alter the flow of combat as they see fit. Employing tactical assets and on-demand vehicle deliveries, players are given unprecedented strategic control over epic sci-fi battlefields.

Burn in to battle from 15,000 feet: see the battlefield open up below; hit the air brakes and choose where you land

Dynamic Combat Missions alter the flow of battle and remove all predictability. Use your wits to gain victory instead of just doing the same things over and over again

Call in deployables such as powerful gun emplacements, tanks and walking war machines to secure your hard-won territory or to gain a strategic advantage as you advance on the enemy

Choose your weapons, armour and more; dont be restricted to a class such as scout or medic

Incredible graphics, powered by a heavily modified Unreal Engine 3, delivering huge, open battlefields

Full single-player campaign telling the story of trooper Alex Corde

Unrivalled multiplayer combat allowing for clan, team and individual stat tracking

The other link is for the 360 version

Haha that would explain it then

the right price for the game but I suspect with Southpeak's involvment it'll be mediocore at best, I could be wrong though, there's a first time for everything!

if you want a decent online shooter get BF:1943 great title.

Played the open beta and for this price its a bargin, geat game :thumbsup: , did originally pre-order

Shame that BF:1943 has been delayed on the PC ... but isn;t it just BF 1942 with some slightly updated graphics

The Open Beta is available from Fileplanet, you don't need to be a subscriber, just a normal account. I'm going it a try before pre-ordering. Heat added for the deal, it's one of the best pre-order prices I've seen for a long time.

I've just been playing the open beta ... it's a bit MEH !

Some nice features, but it's just another online shooter #1001 ... this is probably the right price for a few hours of fun - not sure I could be othered logging in and playing after a week or two.

Has anyone received their PC version yet from Zavvi ?
