    You might want to have a look at this.

    Set in WWII.It's not bad at all, browser based online FPS. I had a bit of a crack at it & it's not a spray & pray game at all, very tactical, tanks, jeeps, aircraft & lol even pushbikes :eek:. It also has an RTS section to it which is all part of the constant ongoing battle to gain ground over the enemy.

    This is a good run down on H&G.

    Have played it, sadly the lag is a major issue in the game, not sure if they changed minds, but to be no local server for Aussies and Kiwis so will be giving it a miss.

    Oh and me playing it on the push bike :D

    Haven't played it in a while, but never found the lag to be that much of an issue, just something got used to.

    Will try it again to see what improvements etc they may have made.

    It wasn't for most parts, but if people get on from Europe it was a major issue :(

    I didn't find much of an issue with lag this arvo. I think being more tactical than spray & pray makes any lag not a problem, or maybe they have improved things.

    Sounds of it improved I would say, I had a lot of fun playing it before, just at one stage it was so laggy everyone would leave the servers.

    Might be the fact that it's still in beta too & that they have improved it. I enjoyed trying it out.

    Guess I will have to look at it again. I played quite a bit, but had the same problem as everyone else: lag.
