Silent Heroes: Elite Troops of WW2
Norway and Sweden might be famous for Vikings, expensive beer and blonde goddesses with a refreshing attitude to nudity, but they're not the first countries you think of when battle mods come to mind. All that could change though because Silent Heroes pitches the two modern-day nations against each other in fullblown warfare.
The premise is that with the Iraq war dragging on, pulling in ever greater numbers of NATO troops, a group of high ranking Swedish officers revisit an age-old battle plan. While the attention of the world is focused on the Middle East, they invade Norway. Naturally enough, the Norwegians are upset.
Silent Heroes wins points on many fronts. With clever, well-designed maps and a variety of game types it should keep any Battlefield fan happy for hours. The mod also offers a selection of unique weapons and vehicles most players will be unfamiliar with and a loving attention to detail that gives the whole thing a great sense of atmosphere. Indeed, the feeling of realism is matched only by a few of the best-known mods. At the moment, SH is limited by the non-availability of Al players and a shortage of online support, but this deserves to change. In the meantime, a LAN game of Silent Heroes is as good as any other mod out there.
