Brothers in Arms 3 is the latest game released (2014) in Gearbox’s series “Brothers in Arms” which is a step up from Brothers in Arms 2 (2010). In order to play Brothers in Arms 3 you must have a mobile device running either IOS or Android OS.
What kind of experience will you have when you download the free game off of the app/play store? A beautifully created WWII shooter. Upon entering the first level of chapter one you’ll notice a few things:
The game is energy based. While this can be a huge turn off for more serious mobile gamers – Believe me, I’ve been there- When you consider how long most people sit down to play an app for, a large portion of the players won’t face too much frustration with the energy system. If you’re sitting down for a couple games of multiplayer rather than the single player campaign then you may want to consider putting down a couple bucks for “Gold VIP” which allows you to have 7 days of unlimited energy plus more exclusive features.
Controlling your player is simple and has common controls when compared to other mobile shooters. Playing Brothers in Arms 3 will require both hands to play effectively. Unlike a lot of other mobile shooters your character doesn’t have to hit a special button to take cover – which is a good thing. If you walk behind a piece of cover your player will automatically (unless you are firing) take cover to protect himself. You also have free reign over your characters movement. This leads to more dynamic play styles and can indulge the run-and-gun market as well.
Before you go and download Brothers in Arms 3 it might be a good idea to took at some tips and tricks to improve your strategy right out the gate. The first tip is focus on enemy firing patterns. Each enemy will fire within a pattern and then pause to reload or take a breather. To avoid taking a lot of damage, wait until your enemy is taking a break from firing at you to fire back at them. While you can’t have a 100% firing free area when there’s more than 3 enemies, only returning fire when a couple of them are hiring at you will greatly reduce the amount of damage you take.
The second tip & trick is to take advantage of the free reign movement mechanic. Often times there will be more than one piece of cover for your character to hide behind and it’s likely you’ll have an AI ally with you. If you can flank the enemy this will lead 2 targets for your enemy rather than just firing the the piece of cover both you and your ally are behind. Depending on placement this can also limit the amount of enemies that can fire at you from your location.
Brothers in Arms 3 is highly-recommended and can be fun with or without spending real money on in-game purchases. Happy downloading.
