What's your favourite mission

Unread post by Oldih » Tue Aug 09, 2005 10:11 am

I dont know which one was my favorite, I myself liked Husky and Houndsmith, aswell as the first operation.

Myself the Africa operation was rather disapointing, IMO in original H&D2 the Africa campaing was beter.

But I could say I like them all.

I voted snakebite....i have to say the first time i did it was with 4 soldiers and just went about it the normal sort of way..

Second time i did it with 1 soldier and did it the maddest way i could i.e. drivinf
as fast and far into the map as possible then bailing out, hiding and just doing what i had to to get to the end...it took quite a while but was far more satisfying :)

Driving around then jumping out and hiding behind rocks... sounds like fun :lol:

I've played both styles as well, with all 4 then just solo. I played basically the same way. I find the map is really easy when you hide and snipe all the enemy soldiers... a couple times you have to hop behind a MG though :wink:

It is a good map, probably my favourite Africa map.

An enemy soldier near the first MG nest has one of those :wink:

That second tank can be a real pain in the butt sometimes. I swear it is just luck of the draw when using the german anti-tank gun to snipe it from the MG nest. I normally try that first, if by the 5th load :lol: I haven't done it I just grab my jeep then go in with one man, park behind the destroyed truck and blast the tank away. Always works :roll:

to alexander and da fish: the british were in fact involved with the battle of the bulge in the ardennes, although not to as great an extent as the americans.  The British casualties of the battle were approximately 1, 400. on top of that, who knows what groups like the SAS were doing

that is correct. SOE were used once the ss150 Pzbrigade was understood to be a covert ops unit speaking english so tentative reons wrr performed to spot them [unsuccessfuly]

Yes the British 6th Ariborne was involved in the Ardennes Offensive. So it could have actually made it into SS. Devils Bridge did a first class job with it in my opinion.

I enjoyed the maps in SS because they attempted to recapture that huge feeling that the original had. You could see targets before accurate shooting range and could observe patrols and the like. I liked the colour scheme and genre layout of Ponte Grande but the combat doesn't suit the LS3D engine and the sound FX were there best. I'm an ardent believer that strong sounds can make or break a game, film etc. It would figure since I'm a musician  :mrgreen:

The North Africa missions were fun but the Darnis Zarine map is hard to play since its so fantastic and is more the domain of a covert op mission. The Canyon was a deliberate throwback to the Devils Bridge Greece mission which I will say was and still is a definitive piece of atmospheric gaming work. Unfortunately H&D2's engine and graphic style doesn't allow for that same effectiveness.

Ammobox is epic. Period. I love it for all the reasons Jason has stated. Great lighting, sound, atmosphere, map layout etc. The only thing that could have made it better was the ability to capture a German and use the unform to exploit the map that way and to have had German foot and vehicle traffic (trucks, passing cars with Kreigmarine officers etc.) outside the perimeter. Would have added tension like in the firs Liberator level when the Feldgendarmerie at the start check the papers of the oncoming truck.

Houndsmith was based on real SAS ops as is most of SS. But the feel of the woods level was nice. Not the potential that final Liberator level possessed. I feel the woods of Eastern and Central Europe just hold a more sinister atmosphere.

It's definetly ponte grande

I like that I can practise both things that i like-sniping and taking out tanks

Although I have tried many tactics on that mission including a mad heavygunner assault on the reinforcements the best strategy that works for me is sniping them from the allied side.

I'm surprised that so many liked the Ponte Grande mission. Its direct confrontational exchange seemed more like the domain of the main market fps'. Not saying that H&D shouldn't have battle missions (the originals' mission to Prague is simply brilliant). I just expected the kind of people who played this game favored the stealth based tactics or indirect approach.

As a side note : I'd pay the price of a new game just to see the Prague mission updated  :mrgreen:

When I think Sabre Squadron, I think of operation Dead Fish. It's just the way it is...
It's one of the most challenging stealth missions in the game. I loved it very much.
I always spent a lot of time trying to get everything perfect and finding new entry points and so on. I definitely had lots of fun with this level.

I love the Deadfish mission because it's the only H&D2 level that really captures the atmosphere of the original H&D game in my opinion :cool:

I voted sitting duck. I am a huge fan of all of the desert missions, although I feel "Spaghetti Airport" would have been better at night, and if I could give the charges a longer fuse. But I guess I liked Sitting Duck because it was sort-of a combination of the Oasis mission and the Spaghetti Airport mission.

I'm not sure I ever thought about that but I think you're right it would probably be better at night. It's an action mission at heart but I've always tried to go stealthy, it just would work better as a pure stealth mission I feel.

I do the same thing. I go "They Who Dare" style between the tents to plant explosives on the plane before it can take off. Or I quietly plant a bunch of mines where the reinforcements come in.

I suppose that I really wasn't too fond of was the last one, Burgundy 3. It was a good mission but I think, just because of the style of it, it would have worked better adapted as another Pacific Theater mission. I wonder if the Poland map would have made a better Burgundy 3?
