If you?re looking for an action game for the iPhone and iPod Touch, Brothers In Arms Hour of Heroes is an amazing title to check out. This game really pushes the boundaries of what we?ve seen so far on these devices and offers the sort of gameplay that you would expect out of a PSP or Nintendo DS title for a third of the price.

Brothers In Arms Hour of Heroes offers up 14 missions spread across three campaigns during World War II. Your role is that of a soldier in the 101st Airborne. Throughout the game you?ll find yourself running around on foot using numerous different weapons depending on what the situation calls for and even participating in vehicular combat in a 4x4 and a Sherman tank. Basically, this game offers up everything that you would expect out of a video game on any current portable console.

The controls for this game aren?t difficult either. To move, use the circle in the left side of the screen. Dragging the ball within that circle will bring you in that direction. Dragging your other finger across the screen will turn your field of view in any direction you like. It will take a bit to get through the learning curve, but once you do, you won?t run into any more issues. The game does quite a bit for you as well. If you get close to any form of cover, you?ll duck down behind it. Approaching a wall will turn your back to it so you can lean around the corner and get the shot you need. When firing, you?ll also notice that there is auto-aim to a degree. While this might cheapen the game for some of you, without it, the game would be a lot more difficult.

Brothers In Arms Hour of Heroes is a huge step forward in the world of iPhone and iPod Touch gaming. This game has so much depth that you?ll find yourself sitting there and playing it the same way you would any other console game. With all the different difficulty settings and achievements to unlock, this game is going to be on your iPhone or iPod Touch for quite some time. If you?re looking for serious gaming on your device, definitely download Brothers In Arms Hour of Heroes.
