FH2 - WWII PC gaming with an attention to fine detail. Dorrell, February 2016.
Have you ever dreamt of flying a Spitfire through a hazy desert sky then swinging her down out of the sun to strafe an unsuspecting column of Opel Blitz trucks? Or perhaps instead waiting silently until a Soviet T34 rolls heavily into the sights of your 88 anti-tank gun?
If you are a fan of playing computer games on the PC but seek something a little more authentic concerning WW2 details, weapons, vehicles and environments, then the first person shooter Forgotten Hope 2 is definitely worth considering.

Based on EA Games's Battlefied 2, from their successful Battlefield franchise, FH2 takes you to various theatres of the Second World War, from North Africa and Western Europe to the Eastern Front, where you can play with a variety of weapon kits from Australia, Britain, Germany, Finland and the Soviet Union... in a range of interesting and detailed maps.
To the gaming community this award winning Mod is certainly not new but its longevity is testimony to the dedication of its community of modellers and its quality. With periodic fixes, improvements, new models, skins and maps the game is indeed still evolving. The attention to detail is not only reflected in the visuals but also the sound effects and loading music. This is certainly no amateurish project.
Available as a download in multiplayer internet play as well as singleplayer, you will need a copy of BF2 and its latest patch before you install an play it.

Working on a ticket system, the aim of each individual map is to either capture or deny your enemy flags on the map thus reducing their tickets to claim victory. Unlike some other games however, where you have certain levels or objectives to reach before unlocking further game features, FH2 gives you total flexibility and freedom to do as you please, whether you want to spend your time harassing the enemy with your Panzer or play seriously in a squad.
You can literally get on the controls of most vehicles and static weapons of WW2, such as machine guns, field guns, jeeps, half tracks, tanks, planes, and take them pretty much everywhere. With iconic features such as the M1 Garand, Kubelwagen, Schmeisser, messerschmitt bf 109 and many many more.
