    Best WW2 shooter is still MOH Airborne imo. Free roam battlefield, sounds directy recorded from the real thing, weapon skill learning and those respawning drops with hidden locations - love it.

    I'd recommend The Saboteur also. One of my all-time favorite games. Damien's list looks great otherwise, I'd definitely pick the same games.

    Medal of honour underground is great, pity it has no PC release I'd like to play that again with M&K

    COD1&2 were both good along with UO

    None of those mentioned even come close to Hidden & Dangerous 2.

    It is not only the best WWII shooter, but possibly the best WWII themed game and best tactical shooter.

    Yes fanboy.

    Yeah H&D2 is pretty good, so is the first one.

    My favorite ww2 shooter would be cod1+UO, i could play it all day and not get bored like the new shooters today.

    It had a pretty unique game mode, base assault.

    I haven't played many games online but years ago I used to be well into Medal of Honor.

    I tried a few others. Call of Duty worked really well.

    I think a lot of games suffer from over complexity of the action. I could never enjoy Wolfenstein online, because of the stupid speed of the players and all the finicking about with engineers and flags, etc. - meh . But I absolutely loved the single player. I haven't played the follow up that came a few years later but am really looking forward to it.
    I found Battlefield 1942 extremely tedious, with often a lot not happening much and far too often random deaths without knowing what happened.

    I think there is a lot to be said for sheer simplicity when it comes to online versions. For this is one of the things that made MoH work so well online. A simple team match, so you knew who to shoot at and had spawn points whcih moved like a rugby scrum as power in each area shifted. Free for all death matches with no sides were just silly. But the structure of having the teams made it work great. Outside of clan based matches most often players didn't work AS teams, but as individuals trying to play well for themselves in a team structure - and that worked great. I absolutely loved that and became good.

    Cheating or paranioa about cheating spoiled it to an extent. And also being accused of cheating if you were too good relative to others, wasn't nice.

    I never cheated, but I did sometimes used to fool about, which with drink added gave me great amusement.

    Ah yes, what laughter there was to be had from trolling a team match of MoH !

    Even on a good server with good play, sometimes the temptation to be a jerk was too great.

    Do you remember in the first version of Allied Assault, there was an oversight that got patched over by Spearhead. It was known as "tele-nading". Whereby, you drop a grenade by your team mates and if you changed sides quickly enough that same grenade would then kill your new enemy that were standing next to it LOL. I took it further by blocking key doors so that my team mates would build up, get annoyed, whack me with their pistols and swear at me on the message screen. I think my record was eight kills doing that.

    And then there's provocative team wounding - which can be very funny where Auto-kick was applied. I shoot a team mate in the ankle using only my pistol and holster it by the time he looks round. But I follow and do it again, taking another slice of health. Eventually the rage takes over and they fire off a mag into me LOL Do that two or three times and they get themselves kicked.

    And how old was I when I did this ? 9 ? Nope - mid thirties haha !

    In Wolfesntein, I used to reduce team mates health to near zero at the spawn point using the flame thrower, so that the slightest things the other side caught them with would kill them and they'd be back spawning, only to get singed again. That got me kicked quickly !
    But my favourite thing in Wolfenstein was using the engineers and their mines to troll the match. I'd wait for a mine to be laid and being on the team, I could see where it is. Then I would simply walk over it and get myself killed. The really baaad thing was, Punkbuster would say something like you have been team killed - do you wish to complain to the game admin ? Of course, I would click "yes". The engineer would be kicked, come back in, big sweary flame war.... I would plead innocence saying I didn't understand how it worked. But then do it again and get swiftly kicked.
