Description

    RAID: World War II is an action-packed four player cooperative shooter set during a time when the Nazi war machine was still winning, and hope was in short supply.

    During the worldwide fight against evil, four prisoners of war are found in a raid on a Gestapo jail. They have been freed by a “Mrs. White,” a secret British intelligence agent, who needs someone to take down Hitler and his Third Reich once and for all.

    Not every part of the war effort is noble. In fact, Mrs. White has something else in mind for the squad. Players will fight for their freedom via sabotage, robberies and assassinations of the Nazi Party. If they’re stealing from the Nazis, why not get rich on the side

    Key Features

    Classes - Players can choose from four different classes: Recon, Assault, Insurgent, or Demolitions. Each class has their own highly developed skill tree, allowing for various play styles.

    War Cries - Each class has its unique War Cry - a powerful ability that can be unleashed to buff yourself or the entire team. For example, if a player activates the War Cry BERSERK, players won’t consume ammo for a limited time - so they’re free to blast away.

    Character Customization - Our four heroes are drawn from the main combatants in the European theatre of World War II - Great Britain, USA, Germany and the Soviet Union. Each has its unique look with a fully customizable uniform.

    Weapon Modifications - World War II saw the dawn of a whole lot of new weapons that said “bang” in lots of new ways. RAID allows players to play around with these weapons and of course upgrade and customize.  Barrels, stocks, fore grips, optic sights and much more allow for a vast range of play styles.

    Operations - RAID offer players the chance to play through extended adventures by undertaking Operations. Operations are a chained series of highly-modified raids, featuring new storylines, unique content and objectives. The risks are greater, but so are the rewards!

    Challenge Cards - Players can earn and spend special Challenge Cards. These let players customize the “rules” of a raid in a buff-debuff way. For example, enemy ammo drops will increase, but at the expense of enemies doing greater damage.

    Locations - RAID: World War II takes place in locations across war-torn Europe. From the mighty Flakturm dominating the heart of Berlin, to the idyllic Bridge over the Elbe, players are sure to enjoy bringing slaughter to every corner of Hitler’s Reich

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Frankly it's a little disappointing This game is made by the same crew that did Payday 2, which wasn't the greatest but I had fun playing it, especially online. This game however, is a totally different experience. The biggest problem is the framerate. Whether you are playing online or offline, it drops on a consistent basis. Sometimes to the point where I didn't even know where I or my teammates actually were and trying to aim with a scope is impossible. The AI is also stupid. The Germans basically just funnel into areas one after another in ridiculous numbers to their doom, and do it all again 10 seconds later, they never change anything. Leveling feels like way too much of a grind, and with little reward. Multiplayer can be fun if you get a good group together but you still have framerate problems. On a positive note, the lady that does the voice work sounds very wwii radio like so that's a nice touch, plus it has both a guy who plays Hitler AND John Cleese is your boss.
