Review: Heroes & Generals
Heroes and Generals is a free to play 3D MMOFPS developed by Roto-Moto and set in WWII . Unlike traditional lobby based shooters, Battles fought within Heroes and Generals contribute towards a persistent overworld based on real areas of Europe during WWII. High ranking players acting as “generals” command various assault teams towards key objective locations within the overworld. Once an assault team has been moved into place a mission is spawned allowing players to join that mission.
Fight alongside newfound brothers from all over the world in multiple battles raging persistently as Generals strategize and deploy resources to assist their men.
As a soldier everything you do influences the war. Every kill you make, every tank you destroy, every town you capture matters. Even glorious defeat, because sometimes to win the war, many must die.
Heroes & Generals Gameplay
Defend control points. Due to the fact, that there's a higher chance, that while playing as the Infantryman you will spend a lot of time inside of buildings (radios, which are connected with control points, are mostly located there), you are perfectly suited for the role of control points' defender. Your teammates won't be able to drive their tanks or fly their planes inside of buildings, and a sniper won't be as effective at close range - you have to take care of the defenses.
Use sidearm and close-combat weapons. Pistols aren't the most effective weapons in the game, but they can (and certainly will) save your life - instead of wasting several precious seconds to reload your main gun, you can just flip your weapons, select the pistol and get rid of the enemy. The same goes with melee weapons (like a shovel or a wrench) - a single, well-aimed hit can send your enemy to the other side.
