Beyond Enemy Lines is finally a game that challenges you again. There is no indication where an opponent is or the mission goal as in real life. This makes things more difficult, of course, but this is exactly why BEL stands out from the Military Stealth Tactical FPS genre. The graphics are very nice and the game world has an atmospheric atmosphere, especially after the last update and the developer supports the game even after the release from all sides such a thing is no longer self-evident nowadays. A workshop with a good and quite simple level editor is also available as bonuses. You don't have to buy the DLC's unless you want to support the developer with it, except for Arctic Hawk (highly recommended) which you have to buy, but pays off the missions in Winterland are very cool and demanding because even the map doesn't help you anymore when a snowstorm rages over the country. General about gameplay: There is no display but you have tools like the map in which you can see the enemy movement and the mission goals. You can solve your mission steath-wise or fight or a combination of it then mostly :) Few weapons and few ammunition and also few medipacks, you can collect the weapons of the opponents and of course use them, nevertheless you have to budget with the recources, if you make a knife kill every now and then you already save ammunition. The opponents are tough and often you don't see them by changing your tactics, it's best to take a little time and check the situation with the binoculars which has become one of the most important tools. The price is also perfectly legitimate for a good 30 hours plus, especially every time you play a mission it's a little different. There are no memory points, you just have to complete the mission when you die. All in all a great enrichment for the tactical fps genre, with a great deal of realism Beyond Enemy Lines convinces in all areas. Highly recommended ! ! !
